The Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5 were unveiled a few weeks ago, and the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is undoubtedly the more interesting of the two foldable phones. It has a much bigger cover screen that lets you do more without opening the phone for every little task. But do the advantages of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 end there?
Well, not really. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 also brings a major change to the most important aspect of a foldable phone: its hinge. Samsung reworked the hinge from the ground up and made it work in such a way that it no longer leaves a gap between the two halves of the phone, making it more resistant to dust and debris, and it looks way more aesthetically pleasing. To know more about the phone, watch our in-depth video of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 review below.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 has a new processor, too, and it is more powerful than the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 used in the Galaxy Z Flip 4. However, you may not always experience a notable improvement in the performance. The 12MP+12MP dual-camera setup, despite using the same sensors as last year's Galaxy Z Flip 4, offers improved image and video quality. More importantly, it takes less time to capture images, which is noticeable in low-light conditions.
Samsung has also added a few new tricks to the software. It did a brilliant job with the customization options for the Galaxy Z Flip's cover screen. You can choose from various lockscreen layouts and use widgets for all the essential apps. It also lets you use a few apps on the cover display. Overall, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is a brilliant phone for those who are looking to buy their first foldable phone or those who are upgrading from a Galaxy Z Flip 3 or older phone.
