The Galaxy Z Flip5 is Samsung’s latest clamshell foldable and it brings two key upgrades over its predecessor – a gapless folding design and a larger 3.4-inch cover screen. The new cover screen is a lot more useful than past versions – you can launch most of your apps and widgets without opening the main one and it’s also a much better viewfinder for your selfies and videos.
The design of the Z Flip5 is virtually identical to the Z Flip4 save for the new Flex hinge mechanism which allows the newer model to fold flat with no gap in between. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset is another new bit on the Z Flip5 which offers flagship performance though we did notice heavy throttling during CPU and GPU benchmark tests.
The cameras are carried over from last year and offer good results in both daylight and night shots though. Battery life is a tad better than last year with an 87-hour endurance rating in our proprietary test.
