Measuring at 3.4 inches, the expanded front screen is a considerable upgrade from its predecessor's 1.9-inch display and the front screen operates at a standard 60Hz refresh rate.

The expanded front screen opens up a range of new possibilities, although not without some limitations. Samsung has introduced a selection of widgets tailored for this screen, and you can also access a handful of essential apps,  encompassing apps like Google Maps, YouTube, Netflix, and basic messaging applications.

At the heart of the Galaxy Z Flip 5's camera system lies a trio of lenses that embody versatility and precision. A 12-megapixel primary camera, equipped with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), takes center stage, flanked by a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera. Adding to the intrigue is a 10-megapixel selfie camera, seamlessly embedded within the main folding display.

Venturing into the world of photography with the Galaxy Z Flip 5 yields astonishing results. Tested at a camera-focused media event, the phone's capabilities proved nothing short of exceptional, even under intense scrutiny at 4x zoom. The dynamic interplay between the primary and ultrawide sensors delivers a consistent color palette that preserves vibrancy and allure. With a generous 123-degree field of view, distortion-free wide shots become a reality, revolutionizing the ultrawide lens experience.

The beating heart of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is the revolutionary Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip. This powerhouse chip delivers astounding results, propelling the device into the upper echelons of performance excellence. Whether you're multitasking, gaming, or streaming media, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 effortlessly rises to the occasion, offering an unparalleled experience.While the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is a performance marvel, it's noteworthy that Samsung chose to include 8GB of RAM. This choice, while slightly restrained compared to certain contemporaries, aligns perfectly with the device's optimization. We played some games and work on some video editing, in our experience, it never become overly warm.


The Galaxy Z Flip 5 retains the same battery capacity as its predecessors, but a notable improvement in longevity is evident, largely attributed to the efficiency of the latest Snapdragon chipset. However, it's important to note that the battery performance of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 can exhibit significant fluctuations based on usage patterns.

When utilized conservatively, the device showcases an impressive ability to endure beyond a single day, showcasing its optimized power management. However, the narrative shifts when subjected to intensive tasks such as prolonged 5G usage, continuous navigation, and extensive photography, leading to a noticeable decline in battery life.

Charging times exhibit a similar variability. Utilizing Samsung's 25W charger, a quick 30-minute charge can replenish up to 50% of the battery capacity. However, a complete recharge demands approximately 90 minutes, highlighting the balance between rapid refueling and ensuring optimal battery health.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE                                                

The Galaxy Z Flip 5 presents an exceptional choice for those contemplating a transition from a conventional slab phone to the world of foldables. Furthermore, it stands as a commendable upgrade option for current owners of both the original Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
