Samsung makes a case for Galaxy Z Fold 2’s productivity chops as work-from-home continues

The COVID-19 pandemic is still raging, and millions of new cases are being discovered every week. Amid this dangerous situation, most people are learning and working from their homes to stay safe. As expected, the screen times have shot up by a huge margin. In a survey conducted by Samsung, consumers have shown interest in smartphones that offer more productivity as they juggle between personal and professional lives while staying home.

A new infographic published by Samsung shows how people’s lives have changed since the pandemic and how dependent they’ve been on smartphones for various activities. It shows that phones are among the highest-used devices and more people want to buy a device that offers better multitasking. The survey conducted among consumers in Korea and the US shows that younger generations are multitasking on their phones more often and most of them want to use one device for everything.

As many as 82% of consumers are staying home more often, and their screen time has increased due to remote working (or learning in case of students). People are also increasingly using their devices for entertainment, shopping, and for staying in touch with friends and family. The South Korean brand says that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is engineered for the new normal, and we agree with Samsung in our review. The new foldable smartphone’s bigger screen offers higher productivity and a more immersive experience while watching videos or playing games.

Samsung’s infographic below shows more interesting statistics about how consumers are using their smartphones during this pandemic and what they want in their new devices.

  • Excellent article. Yes, it's important, we've been working from home about 40% more than previously, as we are a control equipment design and manufacturing company it wasn't such a difficult transition, with being able to do the design work from home and collaborate in online meetings. But it's great to have the Note phone with sPen rather than sitting at a computer all the time. The Fold is definitely the future for our company as soon as we have glass on top that can support the stylus and no crease. It just has to open flat. I imagine this will happen in the next couple of years and we will say goodbye to many generations of Note devices. Looking forward to future generations and this Fold 2 is a huge jump from the first one.

    • Definitely. Same for us, medical scanners design. Also working a lot more from home on the design front. Foldables will be mainstream in a few years in the flagship sector.
