Review of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3

Let’s take a closer look at the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3.

This foldable smartphone was launched in India in August 2021. The phone is more of a lifestyle product and targets the customers that want to set a fashion statement. Considering the price, users expect a decent set of features apart from the epic foldable screen. Let’s see whether the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 lives up to your expectations.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 Price in India and Variants

As compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Samsung Z Flip 3 price in India is lower. However, the phone earns its position in the flagship category, not to mention that it is still an expensive phone. For the 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage variant, you will have to pay Rs. 84,999, whereas for the 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage variant, the Samsung Flip 3 price goes up to Rs. 88,999. Further, the phone is quite durable and is IPX8 water resistant, which makes it viable for everyday use. Further, when it comes to the color variant, you get the option to select between phantom black and cream if you are in India. In other countries, there are more color options available that include gray, green, white, lavender, and pink.

Design of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3

The dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 are like the previous version, including the weight of the phone (183g). The outer aluminum frame of the phone consists of a matte finish, which gives it a decent look but makes it a bit slippery. However, the new dual tone look, and the larger cover screen are big changes as compared to the other versions. The entire area around the cover screen has been darkened, which envelopes the camera module as well. The display panel appears larger due to this design shift.

Be a little cautious while flipping the phone. It is not like one of those old flip phones. You will need to use both of your hands while flipping the phone. You can flip with one hand after a little practice; however, it is important to be careful. Otherwise, you might end up damaging the phone.

The outer glass of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is corning gorilla glass, while the inner glass is Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG). While it is said to be more durable than the older versions, it is better to be careful with sharp objects. The main screen is a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel bearing the same resolution as the previous model. While the screen appears bright and vivid during indoor use, the display washes away in the direct sunlight.

Software and Other Specifications of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3  

The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. It does not come with an S Pen stylus. However, the phone disappoints a bit when it comes to battery life. 3300 mAh battery is a bit low, and with the 15W charging support, it takes around 1 hour to charge your phone to the maximum. The battery lasts a day in case of light usage. However, if you watch a lot of videos or engage in gaming, the battery will not last that long. But it supports 10W wireless charging, and it can be used to charge other devices wirelessly.

In the split screen mode, you can open a maximum of 2 apps at once, while in the floating window mode, you can open to 5 apps at once. Further, you can force the applications to use the Flex and multi-window modes regardless of whether the phone inherently supports them or not. The increased size of the cover screen comes as a great feature of the Samsung Z Flip 3. Though, the limited functionality of the cover screen might disappoint you a bit. You can set background and widgets on your cover screen as well as preview the notifications. However, you cannot reply to messages or emails directly from the cover screen. So, there are ups and downs.

But it does come with certain gesture support. Swipe down, and you change the phone’s ringing mode and adjust the brightness of your outer display. Swiping up brings up Samsung Pay, while swiping right will display unread notifications. Keep swiping left to cycle through different widgets such as weather, voice recorder, music, alarm, etc. Further, if you double press the power button, it will open the camera app and allow you to use your cover screen as a viewfinder. The phone is easily manageable in your hands as well as fits in your pockets easily without those bulges.

Camera Performance

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 comes with two 12 MP rear cameras with wide and ultra-wide lenses. You can shoot 4k 60fps videos, and the phone comes with all the standard shooting modes. In adequate lighting, the camera captures good shots. You can take the digital zoom up to 10X; however, the image quality will weaken with maximum zoom. In low light, the camera automatically switches to night mode and gives better pictures. However, it does not happen in the ultra-wide camera. Further, the phone comes with a 10MP selfie camera, with which you can click good images during the day. You can expect decent selfies in the low light as well.

In a Nutshell

That was the detailed specifications coverage and review of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. Considering the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 price in India, the phone is a bit expensive; however, it does not fail to make a strong style statement. The phone is built well enough for your everyday use in the budget that it comes in, and you can make optimum use of the foldable screen.

Considering the Samsung Z Flip 3 price in India, you can go for financing with no cost EMI. It will not only help you buy the phone but will also let you save the interest cost while spreading your payment over a longer duration.
