Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Review
Samsung prices the Galaxy Z Fold 2 at $1,999 with 256GB of storage and 12GB of RAM. Note that a microSD card slot is not included and there are no other capacities available. Original Galaxy Fold owners can trade in their device for up to an $800 value.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 immediately makes a better impression than the Galaxy Fold because of its larger exterior display. You no longer feel like you’re operating Android through a peephole, and that’s because the cover screen has grown from 4.6 inches to 6.2 inches.
The interior display is also bigger at 7.6 inches for the Galaxy Z Fold 2, compared to 7.3 inches for the previous model. Even better, the ugly notch on the main screen is gone, replaced by a small cutout for a selfie camera.
Similar to the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the Galaxy Z Fold 2’s hinge uses a CAM mechanism that allows you to position the screen in multiple positions. And while there’s still a gap between the two sides of the phone when closed, it’s narrower than before.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes in two colors: Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black. But you’ll be able to add some flair in the form of four hinge color options if you order through Samsung.com. Options include Metallic Silver, Metallic Gold, Metallic Red, and Metallic Blue.
Measuring 6.2 x 2.6 x 0.66 inches when closed and 6.2 x 5 x 0.27 inches when open, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is slightly shorter but wider than its predecessor. It’s also heavier, as the Z Fold 2 weights 9.9 ounces, compared to 9.48 ounces for the original model.
The screen has survived four months of use without a scratch, despite being made of softer, potentially scratch-prone material. The lips around the edge of the screen prevent any ingress of dirt or fluff, despite the USB-C port attracting the usual pocket lint just like any other phone.
The internal screen is a fingerprint magnet and requires frequent cleaning. That’s because unlike the screen on the outside of the Z Fold 2 or that on a regular smartphone, the internal display isn’t constantly being cleaned the fabric of a pocket or similar. A quick buff-up with a lens cloth was enough to restore the tablet screen’s pristine look.
Apart from Samsung’s and a few third-party apps, not many have a full tablet-sized interface on the internal screen when held in portrait. However, many more websites and apps do resize properly to the big screen when the device is held in landscape. That’s because the screen is taller than it is wide. When flipping it on its side, many apps and sites, recognize the width as being beyond phone-size and give you a larger display meant for a tablet or laptop.
Samsung’s system for making Android work on two screens — one of which is more like a tablet than a phone — is both impressive and irritating. It’s impressive because once you understand Samsung’s concepts for multitasking, there’s virtually no limit to what you can do.
It’s irritating because it’s Samsung’s system. On its own, Android doesn’t have the pieces necessary to make a good tablet OS, so Samsung had to tack them on top.
Once you get past that annoyance, however, there is some elegance to what Samsung did here. The core of Samsung’s system is opening up a custom app dock on the side and then dragging app icons to various regions on the screen to enable split-screen, a three-up layout, or even floating windows.
Compared to last year, everything feels a little smoother and faster. You can adjust the various sizes of your panels or drag apps between them by long-pressing an indicator at the top of each app.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 packs a 4,500 mAh battery, which should be able to get you through most of the day. The Galaxy Fold had a slightly smaller 4,380 mAh, so this is a step up.
On our battery test, which involves continuous web surfing at 150 nits of screen brightness, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 lasted 10 hours and 10 minutes on the 60Hz display setting. That’s not enough to make our list of best phone battery life, where are the handsets last longer than 11 hours. But given the size of the Z Fold 2’s display that’s pretty good endurance.
As expected, the battery life dropped on the Z Fold 2 with the display set to 120Hz (adaptive), with the phone lasting 9 hours and 5 minutes.
The Z Fold 2 supports 25W fast charging, as well as fast wireless charging and PowerShare reverse charging. But we didn’t see the best results in our testing. After 30 minutes the Z Fold 2 was at 46% and we would expect 50%. By comparison, the Note 20 Ultra hit 56% in the same amount of time.
In conclusion, this is a full Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 review for you to consider.
