So it’s been 8 months since I first got my hands on Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip (and 3 months with the Z Flip 5G), Samsung’s foldable flippable smartphone. In this video, I want to review and talk to you about some new experiences I’ve had with the Z Flip after 8 months of daily usage, and share some insight on whether or not the Z Flip is worth considering as your next phone. Thanks for watching!

    I have a z flip for almost a year now and let me tell you it is one the best ones I have ever used. Its camera quality is even better than the iPhone 12 pro. I have dropped it many times but still, it works like brand new. Till now I have not faced that much of a battery issue even tho I stick my nose in my phone 24/7. And have to admit that the speakers are better than the iPhone 12 pro because I had done many tests on both of the phones but the z flip won every time. I am very satisfied and can use the same phone for a century :)))

    I was able to get a flip 5g from amazon in refurbished condition for $900. Samsung was offering $450 trade in value for iphone 12 mini, but I think you can get more just selling it on auction in most cases. Using these tips I think most people can get one quite affordably.

    Honestly, I have had my purple Z Flip since launch and LOVE the device. It's not only super innovative, but there's things that a fold or flip device ca do which people who don't have one will not realize.
    It's seriously awesome. Now it has Android 11, but NO DeX, which I really want.

    Nice video. You're right on the price. We basically paid for the display and related R&D as well as the precision engineering.
    Have had mine for a year. I wonder though... how has your thumb not made marks on the display? I only ask because I don't open one handed in fear of grooves or scratches. Yes, lol, I cut my nails.
    Love my Z Flip. I also have the Note 20 Ultra. LoL!

    Good video Shane. Thought I'd share my experience. I've had my Z Flip since April. Here goes...
    Pros
    - Never get tired of flipping it open. My regularity of interaction with my phone has exploded. Obvs lockdown might have something to do with that but still, seriously fun phone to own
    - Laptop mode is very cool and works really well. Simple things like WhatsApping whilst listening to music or a video on YouTube is very easy to do
    - It's a Samsung so it's been very reliable from a software point of view but...
    Cons
    - The screen is delicate. I scratched mine badly inadvertently when I held it and a beer bottle together in one hand. BIG scratch across the middle of the screen which of course is where the fold is. The entire plastic screen protector came up in a ridge around the scratch. I waited 3 months to replace it, which only one company in London could do and it was £470 !!
    - My replacement screen has developed scratches and a crease in the fold a week ago. So screen life is averaging 3 months. A shame really because it is SUCH A COOL PHONE.
    - Thinking back, my first screen just before I scratched it, was showing weird signs of damage at the sides of the fold, kind of like the protector was lifting off even though it didn't have any protective film applied
    - Battery life is par the course for a smartphone in 2020 and of course the increased usage cos of its coolness probably goes some way to explaining why it can sometimes need charging twice in a day
    Overall I'd say I'm suffering early adopter risks. The phone always gets oohs and aahs when it's opened and I'm happy I bought it but will definitely be happier when the screen plastic is stronger in future evolutions of this concept.

    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 👎👎

    Ok so if flipping is the sale point. Why?? No one calls anyone anymore. Check you minutes used a month. And if you have to flip open. Then what's the point of our 150 to 200 Bluetooth buds and smartwatch??? Flipping a phone open is nice but we have Bluetooth headphones now buds pro etc. Don't want to pull phone out?? Well we look at our watch n reply so idk. 1400 bucks??

    Only if they match a external display to view full text messages or a AOD with my pics as a wallpaper would be dope like the Motorola version
    A better camera if I'm paying this much hook me up with bad ass camera

Also the fact that when I was younger I used to love closing the phone to hang up calls..so basically for my over use of social media, and random video watching...is it worth it?

    Being able to see a review from someone that's lived with a phone for a while is very helpful. It looks like you are using the leather case, do you find it protects it well? I'm currently on a Galaxy S8+ that is paid for, and works fine, but I've been looking at foldable phones (women get small pockets, grr). The thing that I liked about the S8+ was the ability to add memory via a (sd??) card, since I take lots of pics of my cats and food (yeah, it's an exciting life, LOL), and my previous phone was an i5C that couldn't get out of it's own way for the lack of memory. ATT is offering me a good amount back to switch my phone to a Z Flip 5G, but I need to know if the memory is expandable. Thanks

    I'm thinking of buying a flip (i have a samsung galaxy s9 edge now) but idk which one yet. I like the design of the z flip (1) the most it looks really cool esp the mirroring stuff and it really suits my aesthetic, but the mystic white 5g looks more dope (sadly i can't buy it since it isn't on sale in eu) i was also thinking about buying the new z flip thats coming this 2021 but i've seen some pictures but i don't really like the design😅😅 so idk which one i should buy, i dont really care about if the phone is waterproof or not, i only care about if the phone's screen cracks easily or not and maybe care a little bit about the battery but that wouldn't be something to focus on since my current phone's battery mah is still smaller than the one of the z flip (1) + it will be reducing my screen time which is something good since lately ive been using my phone too much :)
    If the mystic white one would come out in my country i would defo buy it, but idk which colours the new z flip will come out- and i also can't find a lot of information about the limited mystic white coming to europe..
    I've also heard that when the new model comes out that the first one won't be in stock anymore so i think i need to decide fast?
    What should i do, which one should i buy?? 🥺

    Thank you, for your honest thoughts and daily usage review!
    i kinda regretted, buying the S20+ (non 5G) instead the Z Flip in February 2020, but the pricing kept me away...
    coming from the S9 and updating my phone every 2 years, the main argument was the significant camera upgrade, and pricing ofc...
    next up will most likely be the Z Flip 3 - or than Z Flip 4 :D
