Samsung is pushing the envelope in innovation, and I find it so exciting to watch the progress of a foldable smartphone over the years. Last year I was a user of the Galaxy Z Flip. This year I own the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3.
Most mobile phones you can buy these days are made flat. And I guess that’s one of the reasons that make the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 so unique. Because it’s different, it’s impressive. It’s an eye-catcher wherever you go. People who haven’t seen a phone like this before get impressed. So it’s safe to say the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 brought some cool factor into the game, and it has been enjoyable to use so far.
Here are five reasons that made me switch. In other words, why you may also consider switching to a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3:
1. Compact Form Factor
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is a hit with ladies. It fits everywhere! Having a smartphone that fits in most of my small pockets and small handbags is impressive! Fold it and put it in your pocket. And when out of pocket, the screen is big enough for practical use and reading.
2. Flex Mode
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 works like a tripod. Prop it on any surface, adjust the angle and take the shot.
And for those who are sceptical and afraid that the screen may crack and prevent the smartphone from folding, Samsung claims that the hinge has been tested and retested for durability to help ensure that it stands up to the folds and unfolds of everyday living, so that you get the most out of your foldable device.
The innovation and the artistry behind the technology of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 need to be appreciated.
3. Iconic Cover Screen
By default, the 1.9-inch Cover Screen displays the time, the battery and the date. In addition, you have access to various widgets and notifications by swiping left and right. You don’t always have to open the phone to see those. Instead, swipe and interact with them intuitively.
4. IPX8 Water Resistance
I do not plan to dunk the phone in the water nor drop it in a puddle, but you can do it if you want to. What I love doing is taking photos of raindrops or film when it rains. And when I do that, I want to be on the safe side. I want to know in advance that the phone will be just fine and that I will have fantastic raindrop shots.
5. Lavender case perfectly colour coordinated with my Galaxy Buds2
My case comes with a very cool ring loop that keeps the two parts of the case together. But if you wish to get rid of the loop, you can unclip it from the inside. I prefer keeping the ring loop, as it allows me to get a good grip of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, and it also serves as a pop socket. I chose the lavender colour because it perfectly matches my Galaxy Buds2.
The verdict: If you love the idea of a folding phone, don’t look any further.
