Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 Long Term Review
We’ve been through a flurry of long-term foldable smartphone reviews here at GSMArena towers recently, having already reviewed Oppo’s first entrant into the space, as well as Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip3. So now it’s time to get back to the roots of the folding movement, and that can only mean one thing: turning our attention to the original line of mainstream foldables, which is, of course, Samsung’s Fold.
Now in its third iteration, the Fold is better than ever, but is it good enough to take the world by storm? Or is the “phone unfolding into a small tablet” form factor still too niche, still too undercooked, even as we see it in 2022? These are some of the questions that guided us in creating this long-term review of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3.
This phone isn’t new anymore, having launched last August, so it’s had plenty of time to “bake in” so to speak; any annoying software issues should have been fixed, eg. So is the Fold3 the best Samsung smartphone you can buy right now? Or does the fact that it always folds inevitably lead to compromises in terms of performance, cameras or battery life?
Si vous nous rejoignez au cours des prochaines pages de cet exam, nous essaierons de le découvrir, comme toujours, en mettant un objectif plus subjectif sur les choses – si vous ne recherchez que des chiffres plus objectifs et autres, notre normal exam sera vous sert very good. But numbers and repeatable tests never tell the full story of what it’s like to live with a device day in and day out, so that’s exactly what this long-term review is for.
We’ve used the Fold3 as our sole smartphone for a long time, trying to dig as deep as possible into what makes it tick and where it falls short so we can give you an assessment based on our experience with it. her, and not just numbers and cold hard facts.
With that said, let’s find out together if flip phones are really the future of cell phones, or just a fad that will inevitably morph into something more soon. And what better device to help us on this journey than the latest incarnation of the one who started it all?
