Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Review

Despite the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is quite expensive, it’s sold out throughout the world. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is about the same price as the Galaxy S20 Ultra in most regions. But it’s more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S20 and the S20 Plus. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip benefits from the new Moto Razr having come out in the same month. Despite offering tons of nostalgia, Motorola’s foldable flip phone seems disappointing. Samsung beats it in every category with better specs, especially a better battery capacity.

Its camera combines a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor. And a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor then a 10-megapixel selfie camera.
