Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Review Rundown
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a stunningly high price tag. It follows the same concept as its predecessor: a mini tablet-sized device, bisected by a big hinge, with a folding screen on the inside and an additional “cover display” on the outside. To use the form factor better, Samsung has implemented an "App continuity" feature that allows most apps launched on the cover screen to switch almost seamlessly to the dual main screen.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

The new Galaxy Z Fold 2 follows the same concept as its predecessor: A mini tablet-sized device, bisected by a big hinge. With the screen open, you can hold the phone in one hand, shake it around, hold it vertically or upside down, and it doesn't budge. The main issue is reaching the top of this very-tall screen while balancing a hefty and thick phone.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has been available since September 18 from Samsung and its e-merchant partners at the insanely high price of £1,799. This package will come with a Snapdragon 865+ chipset mated to 12GB of RAM, a triple rear camera module (12MP + 12MP +12MP), a dual 7.6-inch AMOLED screen, a 6.23-inch cover screen, and a 4,500 mAh battery.

Samsung's third folding phone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, costs $1,999. The 5-by-4 aspect ratio lets you fold the phone into an L shape, which Samsung calls Flex Mode. The phone's "ultra-thin glass" isn't as durable as the Gorilla Glass Victus on the outside.

Does's finally keep the foldable phones' biggest promise of an everyday display and a larger one when you need it all in one pocketable device? If it did, that would make the Z Fold 2 the current best foldable phone given its display and hardware specs.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the one piece of tech that has truly wowed us in 2020. Its adaptive 120Hz refresh rate kicks in when you're playing games or watching movies, offering more fluidity compared to the 60Hz screen on last year's Fold. We experienced all-day battery life in our testing, and the phone comes with a 25W charger in the box for what Samsung calls ‘Super Fast Charging'

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 isn't just better than the original Galaxy Fold — its a quantum leap better. The interior display is also bigger at 7.6 inches, compared to 7.3 inches for the previous model. Samsung's other foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip, is much cheaper, especially after Samsung cut the price on the 5G version to $1,199.
