If you’d told me last year that by the Summer of 2020 the new Motorola Razr would be all but gone from the public consciousness, while its Samsung lookalike would be winning hearts and minds … well I’d have said “that’s about as likely as Microsoft trying to buy TikTok.” But the Razr’s early quality control issues and Verizon exclusivity conspired to compound a competitive edge that Samsung already enjoyed: by most metrics that matter, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is just the better phone - and over the past few months I’ve seen more and more of my early-adopter friends snap it up.
Not one to rest on its laurels, Samsung recently updated the Galaxy Z Flip with 5G, new silicon … and a new paint job whose close resemblance to that of a 24th century tricorder has absolutely nothing to do with me dropping 1500 strips of latinum on it. ;) I’ve carried the Galaxy Z Flip 5G for about a week and the LTE-equipped Galaxy Z Flip for six months … so on this episode of Into The Fold we’ll answer the twin questions of how well it’s aged ... and how it became the “Goldilocks foldable.”


This is the fourth in a series of episodes exploring the many facets of life on a folding screen. From the best foldable phones of 2020 to the bleeding-edge world of folding-screen laptops, Into The Fold is MrMobile’s showcase for the most exciting movement in mobile technology since 2007!
Episode 4, a long-term review of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip for 2020, was produced following six months with a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip retail unit, and one week with a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G retail unit, each purchased by MrMobile/Future plc. Samsung did not pay a fee or otherwise offer compensation in exchange for this coverage, nor did Samsung preview or approve this content before publication.

    Right on about the 5G not being a factor until it did you put it, maturity.
    I was still rocking a Note 8 until about a month ago. Found a deal on a Note 10+ 5G I couldn't pass on. It's a Verizon handset, which is fine. I'm prepaid. $35. a month plus tax for 15GB of data, unlimited calls and messaging, even Canada and Mexico. I'm on Wi-Fi half the time. So I haven't come close to using it all.
    I had to get a new Sim Card for 5G. They have an unlimited 5G plan for $60. when I asked about it, the Verizon rep suggested I stick with the 4G LTE plan I'm on. Convincing me with a $15 a month savings. And the knowledge that I can always upgrade plans later.
    She knew what's up. I haven't been on a 5G network yet. I only live 15 miles South of Seattle. Near Seatac Airport. No 5G yet. 😂
    I had the original Razr and the Razr II. Everybody else loved to hate on my Razr. I never had a problem with it. Didn't break. I probably still have it in a box somewhere. Along with an HTC Dream 1, the 1st Android. My personal favorite fun phone from the past.
    I'm partial to the Galaxy line. Skipped the S7, had every other galaxy from the first, except the Notes. Then only the Note 8 and 10+.

    I just wanted to warn anyone looking to purchase this device that it is not as durable as reviewers seem to make out. After 6 months my z flip has ended up with what looks like a big scuff down the middle where the hinge is and 3 big bubbles on the display . I wouldn't normally comment this but the problem here is I don't know what happened my device was folded and in my pocket no keys in my pocket just my bank card and wallet. I loved my flip but this has kind of put me off the device even after removing the screen protector the above mentioned issues are still there. Sorry to ramble just be careful if you purchase this device

    My moto Razr 5g is beautiful. I honestly think the Samsung flip is ugly. Looks like a regular phone broke in half. The Razr actually looks like it's supposed to fold. I agree the 1st one wasn't all that spec wise but this Razr 5g I got from T-Mobile is the dopest phone I ever had.

    Was worried the screen would crack in the cold, but nope.
    Screen has some minor scratches, none of which are visible due to the popping display.

    I would never buy another Samsung Z Flip, where the screen fold the plastic cover on the screen has lifted and now has dust between it and the glass screen. It's 5 months old, I have sent it back to be repaired just for Samsung to tell me the damage was done by me now I have to pay for a new screen. I'm willing to pay for the new screen even tho I didn't damage the z flip screen, it's been two months now without the phone and everytime I call them they have different excuses why I don't have my z flip back. I couldn't wait any longer and I could of bought the new z flip 5g but not after all the lies and stuff around from Samsung. I will never buy another Samsung phone again, instead I bought the new Motorola Razr 5g and Wow it's a much better phone. The Motorola Razr even looks like a flip phone, not like the Samsung Z Flip looks like a lady's small makeup case.. Be Ware of the Screen on your Z Flip, shame on you Samsung 👎👎

    Yeah, I bought a s10e before the z flip came out. It was a budget buy, but in the event that my phone decides to crap out like my s8 did due to a battery surge accident, I'll definitely be picking up a flip. I'm hoping Samsung will continue to come out with something similar in the future, because I really like the simplicity of this phone for some reason.

As a flip phone lover, I've always missed flippin' them since a decade ago. This gives me hope, justified function or not. Just FYI, females' pants having usable pockets seems eons away from, flip smartphone helps to fit them into those pants, today.

    One of the biggest things I noticed going from my old resistive touchscreen dumb phone to a smartphone was how nice the glass screen felt in comparison. It was such a big deal to me that it was more prominent than the fact it was a smartphone. I think the mushy, sticky, nasty feeling of soft plastic would be enough to drive me away from any foldable by itself.

    Getting the z flip was one of the best decisions I've made. It definitely takes me back to when phones were fun. I love flipping it open with one hand and having friends and colleagues look in amazement and confusion when I fold it open and closed. Plus the practicality of using the split screen feature is great. Like you mention in the video it doesn't have the latest and best specs but its also not needed. It does everything its suppose to do and does it well with added bonus of being cool
