My Experience with the Galaxy Z Flip
Ross Young, Founder and CEO

Austin, TX USA -


I recently saw the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip available for $500 off or $880 at B&H 2 weeks ago and decided to buy it.

By far, the biggest adjustment is not that it is foldable, not that it is OLED, not that it is >6”, but all the differences between iOS and Android. I had hoped to ease into this phone and continue to use my iPhone 8, but my son shattered the front and back of his 8+, so the day I got my Z Flip, he took over my iPhone 8. Amazingly, Apple Care got him a brand new iPhone 8+ for just $99. Thank you for Apple Care! Not having my iPhone for 5 days and then using it again also led to some interesting observations.

So, after a couple of days of moving all my content over, sorting out all my passwords and then using this phone exclusively for a couple more days, I can provide some of my thoughts regarding using the Z Flip as one’s primary phone.

  • Robustness
    • The display is more robust than I had expected. The screen feels like glass. I can’t tell that there is a hard coat, PET and adhesive layer over the glass. I know better than to try and scratch it, but I am pleasantly surprised how hard it feels. The first CPI foldable I handled felt much softer. Also, because it is encased a clamshell, the display is very well protected, and I would bet that this display will outlast any display that my 15-year old uses…Maybe I should get him one…
    • The hinge works great and also feels durable. It does not make any noise and has not shown any limitations. I have not been concerned about getting anything near the hinge. It passed dust and debris tests from JerryRigEverything thanks to its clever use of brushes inside the hinge. Will I take it to the beach though when sand has a better chance of penetrating the hinge and getting behind the display? If I did, I would probably think about how I was using it to keep sand off the hinge just in case.

  • Screen Size and Technology
    • After using a 4.7” LCD for the past couple of years, it feels like a major upgrade to be using a 6.7” AMOLED. Pics and videos look so much better. Going back to the iPhone 8 a week later was like looking at one’s old phone from 5+ years ago. It looks tiny with a small display. Could I really go back? I would miss the deep blacks, the higher contrast, it just looks richer and more valuable like when I go to Best Buy and look at the LG OLED TVs. Also, dark mode is obviously much more effective on an OLED than on LCD and I am getting much better battery life despite the larger display.
