Advantages and Disadvantages of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 comes with several important upgrades that make it look quite different compared to the previous generation. In terms of dimensions and weight, it has been made more compact, so that it is more comfortable when used.

So, for those of you who want to switch to a folding smartphone and make Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 your shopping target this year, it's a good idea for you to first look at the advantages and disadvantages Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5.

Advantages of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5


1. Compact design that is increasingly comfortable

As mentioned above, the design of the Flip 5 is more compact than the Flip 4. This makes it more comfortable to hold and easier to fit into a trouser pocket, even a rather tight one.

2. Complete choice of case colors and accessories

Samsung provides a variety of very attractive case color choices. Apart from that, there are also unique cases such as the Flipstui Case to display a matching and colorful Flex Window, Silicon Case with Ring, or Flap Eco-Leather Case.


3. The hinge is tighter and feels stronger

One encouraging thing we discovered while using the Galaxy Z Flip5 was its improved hinge. Now you can close it tightly and without gaps. Apart from that, the construction also feels stronger.


4. Camera quality for photos and videos is very good

The photos with the Galaxy Z Flip 5's main camera are very good. In ideal light conditions, captured photos look sharp with mature color reproduction and good detail. The video results are quite satisfying for vlogging needs.

The Z Flip5's ultra-wide camera is of quite good quality. Indeed, the photos are not as sharp or clean as the main camera, but they are still reliable enough to be used in various light conditions.


5. Folding design makes it easier to shoot from a lower angle (low-angle)

Additionally, the folding shape facilitates candid photography and low-angle photography. The subject usually won't realize you're being photographed because you don't have to point your phone at them.

6. Cover screen or outer screen which is wider and more functional

One other significant upgrade is a wider cover screen or Flex Window. This outer screen measures 3.4 inches, aka 3.78 times larger than the Flip4. In terms of function, it is much more complete. You can watch YouTube or view Google Maps navigation on this tiny screen.


7. Fast performance

Flip5 is equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset paired with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB or 512 GB internal memory. The performance is fast for various needs, including playing games.

8. Screen quality is very good

The quality of the folding screen or inner screen of this smartphone is classified as very good. The size is 6.7 inches Full HD+ with an aspect ratio of 22:9 and an adaptive refresh rate of 1-120Hz.

9. One UI has been optimized

Flip5 runs One UI which has been optimized for folding phones.


Disadvantages of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5

1. The crease on the inner screen is still clearly visible

The crease marks on the inner screen are still clearly visible once you open the cellphone.

2. No telephoto camera

It's quite a shame that the Flip5 doesn't have a telephoto camera, considering the price is over 4K Rm or the same as the Samsung Galaxy S23+.


3. Battery life should be improved

With a 3,700 mAh battery, its durability can be said to be less than satisfactory. Slight improvement compared to Flip4, but not as long as conventionally designed cellphone batteries.

4. The body gets dirty easily

The glass-coated body easily gets dirty with finger marks, including the camera lens.

These are some of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5.
