Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review

 

The best foldable phone – so far

S Pen support – finally ; More durable design ; Slightly cheaper than Fold 2

Still very expensive ; Cameras could be better ; No front-screen S pen support

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G review: the most convincing folding phone yet

 

Samsung has fixed a lot of problems from the Fold 2, cut the price and it features their first-ever under-display camera

Tough, waterproof design ; Fantastic battery life ; S Pen support

Still expensive ; Too big for your pocket ; No power adaptor in the box

A folding phone should give you an immersive experience across all of your apps and videos, as well as help boost your productivity - the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G is designed to tick those boxes. While it's still not perfect, it finally feels like a...

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review

 

We've spent several days with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. Here's what we like and dislike about the new foldable phone.

S Pen support – finally More durable design Slightly cheaper than Fold 2

Still very expensive Cameras could be better No front screen S pen support

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the first foldable phone that we recommend to people who normally call themselves early adopters but held out on last year's Fold 2. These fence-sitters will be swayed by its S Pen support, greater durability and...

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review: An exercise in ambition

 

The third-gen foldable Galaxy phone has now been out for some time. Is it still one of the top foldable devices to beat?

Big screen makes for most impressive looking foldable on the market ; Plenty of power and sturdy software experience ; Battery life isn't too sad ; S Pen stylus compatible

Largely similar to predecessor ; Screen coating unavoidably reflective and ongoing 'crease' issue ; Under panel camera (UPC) can be very noticeable ; S Pen not included ; Pricey

Although it's not massively different to its predecessor, Samsung continues to deliver the most complete foldable experience on the market. Any such device inevitably comes with its share of issues - here, there are screen reflections, a central...

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 Review

 

Samsung's original foldable design is back, but will it be third time lucky for idiosyncratic smartphone, or is it three strikes and out?

— Durable design, powerful performance, and a superb screen

— Apps are not well optimised, and it’s still extremely expensive

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the company’s most accomplished foldable device yet, thanks to significant improvements in its build quality and upgrades to the internals and the display. However, the atypical aspect ratio and the off-putting price mean...

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review

 

A worthwhile refinement on an industry-defining foldable that showcases the company's willingness to innovate on all fronts

Improved design and durability ; Productivity powerhouse ; Beautiful displays ; Consistent cameras

Some apps require manual optimisation ; Terrible under-display camera ; Cumbersome

An industry-defining foldable that offers improved hardware, optimised software and a few surprises (like S Pen stylus support and water resistance), on top of a lower price tag than its predecessor

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review

 

Is there more to foldables than just a hugely expensive gimmick?

Surprisingly easy to handle ; Tough hinge ; Ultra-bright inner screen

Cameras are mid-tier Samsung performers ; Still costs an absolute fortune

Too expensive to recommend to almost everyone we know, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is still good enough to convert many foldable sceptics

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G review: A step above

 

The Galaxy Note might be a no-show, but the revamped Z Fold 3 5G is more than worthy of taking its place

New durable design ; Substantial UI improvements ; Likeable (and unique) form factor

Still expensive ; Inner screen feels quite delicate ; Cameras aren’t anything special

Clearly, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G is a phone that’s overflowing with positives. Not only is it something to admire, but it’s immediately obvious that Samsung has taken on feedback from previous versions, and it’s been rewarded with one of the most...

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review: Unfolding the future | IT PRO

 

An average camera array aside, this is a smoother, tougher and more likable Fold

Stunning displays ; Snappy processor ; Stronger hinge

Very expensive ; Middling cameras
