Is the Galaxy Z Fold 2 going to have the best smartphone camera around? It almost certainly will not, but it should be good enough. Chances are, the camera isn’t the main reason you are buying a Galaxy Z Fold 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is one of the most anticipated phones of this year. Reviews marked them as “premium” and “excellent” smartphones from the tech giant.
It’s hard to decide whether a product is a premium one if we are going just to see its packaging. However, the Z Fold 2’s box is excellent, and it describes its marketing.
There’s a sleeve over the box that displays the new Z branding that Samsung offered on its foldable starting with the Z Flip. And underneath is a bisected package that opens from the center, revealing a small sheet welcoming you to “the new mobile era.”
Unboxing and First Impressions
Opening the box, you will get a USB C-to-C cable, along with a 25W Fast Charging brick. You will also have a pamphlet explaining Samsung’s Z Premiere concierge service. Of course, you will get all these accessories aside from the unit itself.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes wrapped in a plastic label containing some care instructions. Such as the following:
- Don’t press too hard against the inner screen or front-facing camera.
- Don’t try to close the phone with objects sandwiched between the screens
- Don’t get the phone too wet (since it isn’t IP-certified)
There’s so much to talk about with the Galaxy Z Fold 2. A lot of people are excited to spend more time with it. In the meantime, you can pre-order it on Samsung’s website and catch up to an $800 discount if you’re willing to trade in your existing phone.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 Quick Review
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a 6.2-inch cover screen, and it feels much closer to a typical phone screen size. And since it’s not too big or not too small, it is easier to use, thus reducing the need to unfold the device every time.
However, you’ll want to unfold it whenever you have the chance. Why? Because you cannot resist the inside screen in a stunning 7.6-inch Samsung AMOLED panel with all the vivid colors and vibrant contrast.
The internal screen supports a 1768 x 2208 pixel resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, while the external cover display features an 816 x 2260 pixel resolution and 60Hz refresh rate. You can also keep a partially folded angle screen. Samsung calls this feature “Flex Mode,” and it brings several new use cases, such as hands-free video calls or photo taking, and more.
