Unboxing an improved flip
A few weeks back, Samsung unveiled 2 models from the Galaxy Z Series. The Z series is known for its Flip and Fold generations that Samsung release on annual basis with hosts of improvement and updates to it. One of the devices we have on hand now is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 5G.
The Galaxy Z Flip4 5g comes in a slim and tall black color box. Upon unboxing you will get the following as below. The packaging material is made of 100% recycled paper but still holds everything in a slim package just nice.
- The phone itself
- USB C to C charging cable
- SIM Ejector
- User Manual
As usual, no charger or soft case is included in the box, however one can easily obtain a Qualcomm or PD compatible charger that supports 25w and above for optimal fast charging and should be able to last you for the whole day.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 5G comes in three colors, Bora Purple, Graphite, Pink Gold and Blue. But if you wish to customize your own Galaxy Z Flip4, you can customize one HERE with the BESPOKE Studio upon ordering process online. The one that we got for the first impression is the Phantom Black, which is sleek, non fingerprint magnet material all over the sides and back which makes it easy to hold and fold at the same time with good coverage of armor aluminum.
The Design, Look and Feel
The Galaxy Z Flip4 5G weighs at 187 Grams, which is slightly heavier over last year’s model, but still, the compactness remains when folded, which you will get the 1.9 inch cover display that displays user needed simplified notifications such as calls, messages, weather information with status toggle as an inclusion for turning on and off Bluetooth and WiFi, to name a few. Once unfolded towards the main screen, the Galaxy Z Flip4 5G gets the same 6.7 inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with HDR10+ and 120Hz high refresh rate. Such display configuration ensures the speed and flexibility you need especially when comes to unfolding and folding the phone.
Looking at the back of the phone beside the cover display you will see a pair of cameras at 12 Megapixels, with each of them handling Wide mode and Ultrawide lens followed by the camera flash with OIS. Over to the front display side you will spot a 10MP wide angle camera which also features HDR capability which looks similar to the last year’s selfie module. We snap some sample picture above with the Galaxy Z Flip4.
Performance & Impressions
Hardware wise, the Galaxy Z Flip4 5G is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, with up to 512GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM, which the configurations set is on par with any top of the line flagship smartphones, which is definitely optimal when it comes to multitasking. The 120Hz display will give you the responsiveness you need. On top of that you will get a pleasant and loud audio experience with its top & bottom firing speaker.
Overall on my few days of impression with the Z Flip4, it is a phone that loved the originality of Samsung’s Flip design that is compact to carry and use on a daily basis, yet you are still getting more in terms of improvements which when we experience it, it lasts for a day over social media, emails and a few phone calls and messages. From the price point perspective, it’s well relevant considering you are paying for a foldable phone with a flagship class processor. I will be continuing on experiencing this phone further on an in-depth review coming soon
