Check out our Galaxy Z Fold 4 vs Galaxy S22/S22+ camera test


Last updated: September 17th, 2022 at 04:24 UTC+02:00

Samsung finally brought a much-needed change in camera specs to its premier foldable lineup with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 this year. The big upgrades are the switch to a 50-megapixel primary camera from a 12MP one, along with 3x optical zoom and 30x digital zoom capability.

Not counting the 4-megapixel under-display camera on the Z Fold 4’s foldable display, the device pretty much has camera specs identical to the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+. That means these devices should, on paper, capture images and videos of a similar quality, but is that the case in the real world?

That’s the question we set out to answer in our Galaxy Z Fold 4 vs Galaxy S22/S22+ camera test, which you can check out in our new YouTube video that’s embedded below. Spoiler alert: the results we got from these devices are indeed similar, but there are also differences that could surprise you, and we suggest hitting that play button so you can see for yourself.

We also recently compared the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s cameras to the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s cameras, which you can check out at this link. And if you’re wondering how the cameras on the Z Fold 4 compare to those of the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung’s other new foldable that launched this year, go here.
