Design and connectivity

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4

These devices are foldable with totally different formats. While the Flip bets on the clamshell layout to be more compact when folded, the Fold prefers to resemble a tablet when open and close like a book.

Either way, both will deliver Samsung’s toughest aluminum construction, with Gorilla Glass Victus Plus glass back. They are also IPx8 certified, to protect against liquids.

Both have a fingerprint reader integrated into the power button. The Flip 4 has a hole-punch notch on the screen, as does the external panel of the Fold 4, but the Fold 4 prefers to hide the camera under the display on the inside.

Korean has not inserted any memory expansion slot in them. The pair still resemble each other in supporting sixth-generation Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.2, and NFC contactless payments.

Different proposals, with similar constructions in materials. We started with a draw.

Screen


The devices here have a 2X Dynamic AMOLED main display, to deliver a high level of brightness, wide viewing angle and infinite contrast. However, due to the larger proposal, the Fold ends up having a much larger size, apart from the Quad HD+ resolution, to deliver a better definition than the “brother’s” Full HD+.

At the very least, you’ll see compatibility with HDR10+ technology and scratch protection by Gorilla Glass Victus Plus on the front too. In addition, both provide a 120 Hz refresh rate, which ensures high smoothness in system animations and compatible games.

The Z Fold 4 still contains an external panel with practically the same characteristics as the main one. Unlike the Z Flip 4, as its secondary display is very small and there are limitations in usability.

In this way, the stitch goes to the larger collapsible.

Sound

We found a stereo sound system in these two cell phones. This means that Samsung places a second speaker to offer greater audio immersion to its user, regardless of the choice here.

Despite having satisfactory potency, they are still far from perfect. In terms of quality, the sound of the Fold is above the Flip, as it has a better balance between bass, midrange and treble.

It is worth remembering that the Korean no longer puts a physical jack for headphones on its tops of the line. In addition, you will not find an adapted accessory in the packaging.

It’s one more point for the larger Galaxy.

These foldables come out of the box equipped with Android 12 out of the box. Samsung doesn’t make a difference between the two in the policy of updates, so we’ll see in them four software changes and five years of security packages.

The high refresh rate allows for greater fluidity to the system in both cases. Not to mention the presence of 5G in them, to guarantee the user a fast mobile network for a long time.

In terms of features, they bring both the usual One UI shortcuts, Edge Screen shortcuts, and even more advanced ones. Flip bets on the customization of its external screen. The Fold goes further, with a toolbar reminiscent of DeX, in addition to S Pen support.

For the most premium functions, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 notes another point.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4

Samsung has put the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 platform in its foldables. The difference is that the Flip comes with 8 GB of RAM, while the memory of the Fold reaches 12 GB. Did it make a difference in practice? Well, we didn’t see a change in multitasking, but the larger smartphone ended up being faster in opening apps.

In the benchmarks, we also saw an advantage of the Z Fold 4, with greater advantage in AnTuTu than in Geekbench. As for games, you’ll be able to run the titles without major problems and with good fluidity in general, thanks to the support at 120 fps.

For superior performance, the larger Galaxy takes one more point.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4

The Flip comes with a 3,700mAh battery, which is lower than the Fold’s 4,400mAh. Despite the difference in capacity, the duration doesn’t change that much in practice. Even so, we find greater autonomy in the tablet-shaped model, which takes just over half an hour of head start in total.

When charging, the scenario remains favorable for the Z Fold 4. Even with a similar 25 W plug adapter, it is 12 minutes less in the socket than the Z Flip 4, until it reaches 100%.

This is an easy point for the larger Galaxy.

Camera

The Flip 4 comes with just two rear cameras, while the Fold 4 contains a triple set. The smaller 12 MP main takes great photos and hits HDR, colors and dynamic range, but the 50 MP has a more advanced sensor and has a more efficient night mode.

Their ultrawide captures more of the scenery and provides similar colors to the main ones, only the Fold suffers less at night. The larger Galaxy is also the only one to come with a telephoto lens, which has a three times optical zoom, for recording distant objects with good clarity.

That is, the Z Fold 4 marks again.

The Flip camcorder only goes up to 4K at 60 fps. The Fold, on the other hand, goes further and supports 8K videos at 24 fps. Both deliver good quality and optical stabilization to deal with blur. In addition, they provide snappy focus and very clean stereo audio capture. The Z Fold 4 still stands out for the possibility of recording from afar, with the telephoto camera.

In the details, the larger Galaxy takes the point.

The front camera of the Z Flip 4 has the same resolution as the lens on the external screen of the Z Fold 4. With them, you can capture selfies with natural colors and a good level of detail. The sensor under the Fold’s internal display is still far from perfect. At night, these two suffer from a drop in sharpness.

In both cases, you have the option of taking advantage of the rear set for selfies, when guided by the external panel. That is, here you will see in the larger folding a quality above the smaller “brother”.

That is, the Fold notes another point.

The two Samsung foldables were launched at the same time in Europe. The Flip started at R$7,000, while the Fold was available for a suggested price of R$12,800. The two even had the values ​​lowered over time, but the Z Flip 4 still comes out at a much lower cost than its “brother”.

In other words, the smaller Galaxy takes the last point.

Conclusion

In this duel between Samsung’s flexible devices, the largest proved to be the most complete of the duo. The Korean put in it a larger main screen and a more useful external one, in addition to the higher quality sound and the system with more resources, by the S Pen, for example.

The Z Fold 4 still comes with the fastest performance, even with the same chip, and the battery with longer autonomy and shorter recharge time. Out the most versatile camera set for all situations.

On the side of the Z Flip 4, the main advantage is its compact and light size, compared to its “brother”. In addition, it is the cheapest of the duo and allows you to have the experience of a foldable cell phone without hurting your pocket so much.
