Foldable Phones Are Making a Fashionable Comeback

In the early 2000s, having a foldable phone equated to being the coolest kid in school. Bringing a device that can fit right in your pocket was both a functional flex and a fashion statement, while answering and ending phone calls “flip-style” exudes main character energy from an American TV series. There’s something about the phone’s flip action and compact design that make owning a foldable a statement of style and productivity.

Foldables offer distinct perks from regular smartphones. Aside from being able to satisfyingly snap it shut after using them, they also remain functional even when closed thanks to its upfront second screen. Plus, its folded form is not only space-saving but also screen-protective as its display becomes safely hidden wherever it’s stored.

With Samsung’s current line of foldables in their Galaxy Z Series, these pocket-friendly devices fuse the nostalgia of the good old days with smartphone innovations that have become modern-day essentials: high-quality camera, high-speed 5G network, top-notch processing power, and dynamic displays that can run the latest apps.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and Galaxy Z Fold3 5G are the greatest foldables yet to ever be released, allowing the current generation to feel nostalgic yet stylish with their fabulous design and specs.

It also boasts a strong Armor Aluminum build with an IPX8 water resistance rating.

Meanwhile, users of the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G praise its intuitive Multi-Window feature that is optimized for hustlers and multi-taskers. It is also the first foldable to ever feature the S Pen compatibility with its 7.6-inch QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity Flex Display and a Super Smooth 120Hz refresh rate. But what makes this foldable phablet a winner is the comfortable grip it brings to its users.
