Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G review
iPhone 4S from Apple. Lumia 1020 from Nokia. Galaxy Note from Samsung. P20 Pro Huawei. These phones all have one thing in common: they have brought the industry forward in their own way. The Galaxy Fold has done what so many others haven't done in recent years— it has left an impression and changed the way I always use phones.
Each of them bought something different when you consider the phones listed above. They were fantastic telephones at the time, and now they are industrial landmarks, as many have tried and failed to duplicate their success. The IPhone 5S equipped us with the touch ID, the Galaxy Note is why phones today have these big screens and two of the most revolutionary cameras in their day were used for the Lumia 1020 and the Huawei P20 Pro.
The Galaxy Fold did not make the best start at the beginning of last year, but definitely the refreshed Galaxy Fold was. It's not a flawless mobile, but at first it doesn't want to be one. We need to be innovative. To be audacious. Being special.-Being different. The Galaxy Fold does all this and charges a good penny for it. This is why I fell in love with it.
The Galaxy Fold has changed the way I work
In 2019, the stakes were higher than ever in a telephone year. The Galaxy note 10 + is probably Samsung's most complete phone ever made, and the iPhone 11 Pro has proved Apple's most successful all-round phone in the last few years. The Huawei P30 Pro has increased the camera stakes with incredible low-light and Zoom characteristics.
Neither stirs up the Galaxy Fold's feeling to me. It sweeps wow, in a way that hasn't been seen since early iPhone days, and cools Samsung again. Take my recent visit to CES 2020; at the roulette table I have drawn the Galaxy Fold, and the fuel boss has been so enthralled that he spent about half an hour in all dealers and asked me to show them the Fold.
Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G review
Therefore, Galaxy Fold has rethought me about smartphones. Now that I don't just look for a feature like a great camera, I'm looking for ways to really change my workflow and life on my phone. Take multitasking. When the keyboard is open, two apps are side-by-side with enough visible space and Fold is the only smartphone capable of doing so well. The Galaxy Fold also has substance, and the nearest we have been to a smartphone that replaces a portfolio. It is not only style.
I experimented with Mate X shortly after the Fold was launched, and said that two-screen approaches to Fold were incorrect. I've been using it already, I completely take it back. I find it as useful as the main display.
I called it the best little phone I ever made last year when I tested the Galaxy S10e. Why? Why? When you are traveling or trying to work with others, it is super easy to use in one hand. The 4,3-inch-screen of the Fold provides close but less than a standard smartphone experience. This can render typing with a hassle from Samsung's keyboard, but it doesn't matter if you turn to a third party and swip over the keys. I'm using Swift Key and I'm as fast as I'm on a normal phone, although the smaller screen needs a few additional improvements.
When you use the tiny outside panel, the Fold is considerably and understandably very bulky, but not too bulky. It reminds you of the vintage, 21st century Nokia E90 Communicator. For everything from navigating Twitter's feeds and looking at map direction I am always using this small screen. I use the small screen if I move, and the big screen comes out to play when I am stationary.
