Our Galaxy Z Flip vs Galaxy Fold face-off pits two flagship against each other that are quite different.
The $1,380 Samsung Galaxy Z Flip revives the flip-phone design that was so popular a decade and a half ago, and it could be the device that finally delivers a foldable phone that appeals to a wider audience.
But it has some company, in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. That’s the first foldable foldable that Samsung rolled out last fall, which morphs from a 4.6-inch candybar phone into a 7.3-inch tablet.
The Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Fold represent two very different approaches to foldable phones. Which one best suits your needs? Here’s a closer look at how these two phones stack up in our Galaxy Z Flip vs Galaxy Z Fold comparison.
