Suggested January 2024 Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 Hands

If you’re after cutting-edge mobile technology, it doesn’t come any better than Samsung’s latest Galaxy Z Fold 4. Foldables are, dare we say it, one of the few areas of genuine innovation in the modern smartphone space, making new form factors and use cases an exciting possibility.

That said, there’s not a whole lot new with the Z Fold 4 at first glance. If you’ve seen a Fold before, you’ll know exactly what to expect, at least in terms of form. There’s the same productivity-focused dual display, high-quality hinge mechanism, and triple camera setup. Yes, the noticeable crease, sadly, remains in a panel that’s rated for 200,000 folds, enough to last you many years.

We’re looking at iteration rather than renovation this generation, which, considering the continued lofty asking price, may leave many searching for a compelling reason to upgrade from an existing Fold handset — not unless you’re clamoring for a slightly faster processor. Even so, Samsung made a number of small changes that add up, especially if you’re planning to purchase your first foldable. Let’s take a look at what’s new with our initial Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 hands-on.

A case of little nips and tucks

Once in hand, you’ll notice that the new “armor” aluminum frame is lighter than its predecessor, shaving eight grams off its weight. It’s stronger too, according to Samsung, with enhanced Gorilla Glass Victus Plus on the cover screen and back for peace of mind against drops. There’s also an IPX8 water resistance rating, which matches the Z Fold 3. Samsung is out to prove that foldables don’t have to be flimsy and has certainly curated a robust feel in the hand.

The 120Hz variable refresh rate 6.2-inch front display is marginally wider this year, with an extra 2.8mm to work with when using the phone in one hand. That doesn’t sound like a lot, and it doesn’t majorly change the phone’s feel, but it helps address a previous concern just a little. Samsung has tweaked the phone when open too, snipping 3.1mm off the verticle height and padding the width by 2.0mm. As such, the 120Hz variable refresh rate 7.6-inch main display is a little more square than last year, but again not by a meaningful amount. The panel still looks great so long as you don’t mind the little crease down the middle.

Samsung has also seen fit to offer a 1TB storage option for power users. Meanwhile, wireless charging is now available at a marginally nippier 15W, up from 10W. Not every feature has seen a facelift, though. Wired charging remains limited to 25W, for example. There’s still the necessary internal screen protector that you mustn’t remove, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, the same 4,400mAh battery that previously raised eyebrows over battery life, and no slot to stow an S Pen (but Samsung will sell you a case with one).

The key takeaway: quality of life improvements over a wholesale revamp, but welcome improvements nonetheless. As for colors, you can have your pick from Graygreen, Phantom Black, Beige, or a Samsung Store exclusive Burgundy option.

A new camera package

Robert Triggs / Android Authority

For an ultra-premium smartphone, previous Z Fold handsets have been disappointing in the photography department. 2023’s phone wasn’t a bad shooter, but it lagged behind Samsung’s other flagships as well as those from rival brands. To rectify this long-standing gripe, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 features the same 50MP sensor found in the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus, along with revamped OIS and video digital stabilization improvements. A welcome update but one that is unlikely to put the phone at the very head of the photography pack.

Samsung says the new sensor produces “23% brighter” images than last-gen, which sounds like a win for low-light photography. There’s also a new 10MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom (up from 2x) that bodes well for longer-range photography as well. We’ll reserve judgment until we can take the handset out for a robust photography session. Though we can ignore the 30x Space Zoom claims already; the camera definitely won’t hold up that well based on all our testing with other Samsung phones.

Samsung also revamped its under-display selfie camera. It appears to be the same image sensor as the last gen, but there’s a new scatter-type sub-pixel arrangement over the camera. I’d say it’s marginally more disguised than before, but you can still seek out the camera’s location quite easily in most lighting conditions. Thankfully, it’s not distracting enough to be a bother, but it’s still a bit of a blemish on an otherwise sleek piece of hardware.

Without the Z Flip 3 at hand to compare, I can’t vouch that the image quality is any different than the previous generation. Either way, partially blocking light from reaching the sensor means these in-display snappers can’t compete with the better selfie shooters out there. You’re still much better off using the front- rather than internal-facing camera.

Taskbar support seamlessly blends the hybrid mobile and PC use case the Fold has always promised.

Overall, this little change results in a much more intuitive experience for first-time foldable explorers, even though you’ll still have to shake the old tap to launch muscle memory that erased my multi-screen setup on a few occasions. Fortunately, taskbar support is part of Android 12L, so should appear on future foldables from other brands too. Speaking of, Samsung says the taskbar is coming to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in an unspecified future update.

The taskbar isn’t the only new way to make the most of the phone’s multitasking features. Gesture support to quickly switch an app into a pop-up window or split the screen in two to run apps side by side is great for quickly switching between tasks without the hassle of setting up a multi-screen layout. While we’re on the subject, I should note that performance felt robust while multitasking, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor that addresses the heat issues of its predecessor paired with 12GB RAM. We’ll have to run more robust testing in our full review to be sure, but this combination should allow the Galaxy Z Fold 4 to keep up with the needs of demanding power users.

Google’s Chrome and Gmail now support drag-and-drop functionality, allowing you to copy text, links, and pictures seamlessly between the two apps. It’s just a shame this feature doesn’t extend universally across all apps. Besides that, familiar staples, including Flex mode landscape video viewing, the rear camera selfie viewfinder, and S Pen functionality, help make the most of the Fold’s unique form factor.

Software is the glue that foldable success hinges on, and our Galaxy Z Fold 4 hands-on leaves the impression that Samsung has (almost) perfected the formula. As a bonus, Samsung promises four Android OS updates and five years of security patches — the best pledge in the business.

Samsung Galaxy Fold Vs. Huawei Mate X: Battle Of The Fold

Samsung’s idea of the foldable phone, or at least the foldable tablet, comes as no surprise. It was one of the first to envision such a device even before it had a flexible display to speak of. Back then, however, it showed off the idea of a tablet that opens and closes like a book. It didn’t yet plan on making a phone that transforms into a tablet and all the design considerations that it involved.

The Galaxy Fold’s main display is, of course, the large 7.3-inch QXGA+ screen that gets folded inside the two halves. The second 4.6-inch screen on the outside not only has a much lower HD+ resolution, it doesn’t even stretch to all edges of the folded device, creating the impression of a small, embedded screen on top of a cover. The design of the Galaxy Fold, its construction, and the small external display is almost reminiscent of the Nokia Communicators of old, sans the physical keys.

The Pros

When the Mate X arrived just a few days after the Unpacked event, everyone went on about how Huawei’s version was more beautiful than Samsung’s. That’s not to say the Galaxy Fold is ugly but its design seems to be geared more towards its functionality. In other words, its beauty is more utilitarian, almost industrial, calling to mind the business-like palmtops and communicators of yesteryear.

The primary benefit of this “innie” design is that the most expensive component of the Galaxy Fold is protected when not in use. Presumably, there’s also less tress on the folded section of the screen compared to having it act like the spine of a book. This also means that Samsung has more freedom to put whatever it wants or needs on the opposite side of that display without having to resort to a separate grip-like structure.

The Galaxy Fold’s also lets it lie completely flat on a surface, unlike the Huawei Mate X that will always be inclined on one side. This could come in handy in the future when and if Samsung and Wacom add S Pen functionality to the transformable slate. And because it is even on all sides, the device works the same way for right-handed and left-handed users. Hopefully, it’s also possible to prop up the Galaxy Fold like a laptop, though the practical use of that is a bit questionable.

The Cons

That’s not to say Samsung didn’t make some compromises to work with its original vision. It’s hard to argue that, at least when folded, the Huawei Mate X is indeed more breathtaking. Samsung also limited itself to a smaller display in order to be able to hold the folded phone in one hand.

Its biggest criticism, however, is that secondary external display. It’s necessary if you want to be able to use the phone even when folded shut but its small size and awkward placement doesn’t score points in terms of presentation. That said, it’s that same size and position that should make it a bit usable despite the Galaxy Fold’s height.

That said, there might be a beneficial side-effect to that design, something Samsung perhaps never intended nor wants. It could help you cut down on the use of the phone and limit yourself to only the basic functionality. But if you ever need the full functionality, you can always unfold the Fold.

Samsung Galaxy S 4 Vs Iphone 5

Samsung GALAXY S 4 vs iPhone 5

This week the Samsung GALAXY S 4 has been revealed complete with a hardware design that’ll have the Apple-loving world baffled: it looks, at first, to be the same device as last year. With the Samsung Galaxy S III we had a device that introduced the nature-themed aesthetics of the Samsung universe still being used today on smartphones, tablets, and everything in-between. Now with the GALAXY S 4, we’re seeing that the company isn’t messing around with its winning design.

As far as specifications go for the hardware on the GALAXY S 4 as it compares the the iPhone 5, there really couldn’t be two more different devices. With the GALAXY S 4 you’ve got Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (the newest Android on the block) and the company’s own TouchWiz user interface working alongside and within. The iPhone, on the other hand, has iOS – the only version of the software that exists for the newest wave of Apple mobile devices.

Samsung GALAXY S 4

Display: 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED 1920 x 1080 pixel display at 441 PPI

Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.9 GHz Quad-Core Processor / Samsung Exynos 1.6 GHz Octa-Core Processor – depending on market

Cameras: 2 megapixel front-facing, 13 megapixel back-facing

Dimensions: 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm, 130g

Storage: 16 / 32 / 64 GB internal storage, 64GB expansion microSD slot

Battery: 2600 mAh

iPhone 5

Display: 4-inch Retina 640 x 1136 pixel display at 306 PPI

When you have a peek at our iPhone 5 full review, you’ll find that it’s an entirely different user experience than the Samsung GALAXY S 4 is shaping up to be. With the GALAXY S 4 you’ll be working with Samsung’s newest-in-new user experience as outlined in their four user experience pillars of greatness – you’ll see these in the timeline below as well. Android runs here as well with all the connections that operating system implies while Apple’s OS is in an entirely different arena.

Both devices are, on the other hand, connected to the major apps across the board – Facebook, Twitter, all your social networking goodness, and more apps to send messages back and forth between any device than you’ll be able to ever experience. What this decision will come down to, for you, is whether you’re going to pick up a device with a massive display and Samsung’s brand on its back, or if you’re going to go with the other most popular smartphone in the world, Apple’s iPhone.

Have a peek at the timeline below for more information on the brand new Samsung GALAXY S 4 and remember to check the full iPhone 5 review out for just about as close-up a look as you’re going to get without purchasing the device for yourself – and let us know what you choose!

Best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Cases

Rhinoshield Galaxy S8 Plus case

Without a doubt the Galaxy S8 is one of the most attractive phones on the market right now, so why cover up that beauty? If you want extra protection without sacrificing good looks, get one of the bumper Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus cases like those offered from Rhinoshield could be the solution.

When it comes to falls, the reality is that most of the impact pressure fails onto the sides — and so a simple thin bumper case can really make a big difference. In addition, a bumper case adds extra gripability, which considering the slippery nature of glass could really come in handy. Even better news, Rhinoshield’s top and bottom bumper are elevated, meaning that the bezels not only protect the sides, but also are able to protect the front and back from taking on the full impact of a drop.

At $24.95, the Rhinoshield is far from the cheapest case found in this list, but could be perfect if you simply want a little extra protection and grip without adding any noticeable bulk.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Review

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 works with a 10.1-inch TFT LCD display with 800 x 1280 pixel resolution. That’s 149.45 PPI and certainly not the sharpest display on the market, well under the current-gen iPad’s 263.92 PPI and especially the Google Nexus 10 with its 300.24 PPI, but it’s up at the point at which you’re no longer going to be seeing a whole lot of difference.

This machine’s display is the same resolution as the previous generation Samsung Galaxy Tab but here works with IPS TFT LCD technology instead of PLS TFT. In short this means the Galaxy Tab 3 line matches the Samsung Galaxy S 4 for brightness – not sharpness, of course, as the GS4 works with a much, much sharper panel, but for brightness without a doubt.

Samsung has also done a good job of matching the Samsung Galaxy Tab line to the Galaxy Note line from this generation – you’re seeing the Galaxy Note 8.0 – and we’re expecting the Galaxy Note III to look as vivid later this year as well.

With the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 you’re not going to find a tablet aimed at being a one-stop-shop for excellence in all things media capturing as well as display. Instead, this device acts as one of several control ports for the whole Samsung device environment. You’ll find out more about the app connections this tablet has with the rest of the Samsung devices of this Galaxy S 4 era – here in hardware, this means you’re not going to be competing with standalone devices like the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity for raw output and power – not by a long shot.

Inside the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 you’ll find a Z2560 Intel Atom 1.6GHz dual-core processor – Clover Trail+, that is – with the built-in ability to use 4G LTE (in future iterations of this hardware with a microSIM card slot, of course). This hardware will not work with said connectivity as it’s got no SIM card slot to speak of, but we’ll almost certainly be seeing this tablet working with AT&T and Verizon – and maybe even T-Mobile – inside the next half-year with 4G LTE connectivity.

While it may seem like a bold move for Samsung to move from well-known processors like their own Exynos line and NVIDIA’s Tegra SoCs in past Tab lines to Intel here in 2013, it’s worth noting that they don’t do so with their flag flying high. As mentioned in the Intel Scores column from Chris Davies earlier this year, both the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and the ASUS MeMo Pad FHD 10 work with Clover Trail+, but neither of them have “leapt to Atom wholeheartedly.”

As it was with the release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 lineup, here again the company is making very little of the creators of the processors under their device lineup’s hoods. With the Galaxy Tab 2 line it was Texas Instruments OMAP line, here it’s Intel’s Atom, and the results make for a well-balanced tablet collection in either case, but not a set of machines made for breaking any barriers.

Have a peek at a set of benchmark tests here to see how the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 fares and keep heart – the end result is solid for everyday media display, web browsing, and basic gaming needs.
