So i decided to wait for the second generation before buying one and after seeing the super positive reviews on the full 2. I went ahead and bought myself. One here are my thoughts on the z fold, 2. After having it for a month. My first reaction was wow holy. This looks unreal i’m living in the future. Oh my god, the first time you unfold, the phone is quite magical. It really shows how much this technology has matured in just a couple years. The screen looks absolutely stunning when unfolded, and the 120 hertz refresh rate makes his phone really fly. The hinge is tight and it feels quite assuring ah tight, tight yeah it’s got the perfect level of resistance to make it feel like it’s not going to break anytime soon. You start to think this is peak smartphone and if there’s such a thing as a perfect smartphone, this is it and then the reality starts to set in a bit the phone’s front screen, although nothing wrong with it is quite narrow, it’s good for checking notifications a Bit of casual browsing making calls but it’s quite bad when it comes to typing. I typically install the google keyboard on my phones, but that keyboard just doesn’t work well on this phone, the keys aren’t meant for a screen this narrow or the bigger screen. Also, because both screen sizes are uncommon, most apps, just aren’t optimized for either screen the front screen is quite narrow and the main screen is too squarish, causing a lot of apps to have motors the primary screen, while it’s absolutely stunning.
To take a look at has a very thick plastic screen protector on it. It ends up making this amazing piece of technology into a smudgy mess, because it’s plastic it’s pretty hard to keep clean and you have to spend some time cleaning it with a microfiber cloth. Samsung doesn’t recommend removing it yourself and while the screen is made of glass, it’s so thin, i wouldn’t they’re removing the screen protector to prevent it from cracking the phone, isn’t, water or dust resistant and it’s made of glass. That means, if you drop it, it’s likely game over because the phone is so expensive to own. I ended up putting a case on it to keep it protected. As a result, the sorty chunky thick boy looked like he put out some lockdown weight when consuming media. It was an absolute joy, but the cheap feeling plastic always reminding myself, that the tech wasn’t mature enough. Every time i turned off the screen or played something dark on it. It might seem that i’m absolutely putting on this phone, but that’s not the case at all. I think samsung deserves a lot of praise for everything they were able to pack into this device. The battery is incredible and easily got me six to seven hours of screen on time, while primarily using the bigger screen. The cameras, while not top of the line, offer most focal lengths and really good quality shots, while it doesn’t have a micro, sd slot.
The 256 gigs of storage is more than enough for over 90 of people. Also, i, like the software tweak samsung added to take advantage of the foldable form factor. You can seamlessly set most apps to switch between the cover and the primary screen, and you can use the front screen as a viewfinder to take selfies using the primary camera and some apps like youtube and camera. Give you a slightly different experience when the phone is partially folded, here’s, how i think the phone can be improved first instead of glass, i would like to see samsung use plastic or glassing as they call it. It’Ll not only reduce the fear of breaking this phone, but also significantly reduce the weight of this phone and hopefully lower the price. Also, i would like to see a thinner but wider body. This will fix two complaints. One it’ll make the front screen bigger and more useful and second it’ll allow for a wider folded screen, which will only improve multitasking similar to the microsoft surface duo, as currently, the screen is best for using one app at a time and to reduce the weight even Further i’d be curious to see a smaller battery paired with the low power processor if samsung can deliver a smooth experience similar to the pixel 5. Most people won’t even notice that this isn’t using the latest and greatest internals and all these changes will significantly lower the price making this revolutionary tech even more accessible.
And obviously i like to see a foldable glass screen, that’s durable enough to use without any fears of it cracking and a hinge that is dust and water resistant but i’m, not sure if that’s doable at the moment. For now, i think the galaxy default 2 isn’t the phone for me, but it’s done its job to get me super excited for the future of this form factor. If you have a z fold 2, i would love to hear your thoughts on it and if you have any questions about this phone, please leave a comment and i’ll try my best to answer all questions. Thank you guys for watching.
