Thus, there are now two rival factions in the folding domain. One that has a screen that actually folds and the other where two screens and a disappearing hinge come together to fold and unfold.

Not only does it unsurprisingly update the specs of its predecessor, but it looks set to solve the durability issues that plagued the original Fold when it first appeared, too. Samsung has fitted the newer device with the latest Ultra Thin Glass (UTG), a feature which made the Z Flip sturdier and more robust than the original Fold. The Korean company has also provided the Z Fold 2 with a freshly redesigned hinge, which uses tiny bristles to keep at any dust or debris that may interfere with its ability to fold and also its lasting power. Aside from that, the foldable features a bigger 7.6-inch inner touchscreen, a larger 6.2-inch cover touchscreen, and an added 12MP telephoto lens.

Finally, there’s the front screens. When folded up, both devices have small-to-tiny glass displays for checking the time, seeing notifications, and previewing selfies. The Razr 2020 has a much bigger 2.7-inch (600 x 800) screen, which works well enough and has more functionality thanks to Android 10, while the Z Flip’s 1.1-inch (300 x 112) screen is barely enough to track time – though you can use it to preview a selfie if you don’t mind squinting. … [Read more...] about Motorola Razr 2020 vs Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: which foldable phone is for you?
