Hello, my name is Kevin Gray and have been with Cellular One for 7 years and enjoying every moment.  I’m a Sales Representative at the Chinle, Arizona location. I am excited to test the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and share my experiences.

DISPLAY AND COMPACT

What caught my attention was foldable component. It’s sturdy, durable and fits perfectly into my pocket, like a wallet. The hinge and frame on this device is called Armor Aluminum which Samsung claims to be more durable than before. This allows the user to have a peace of mind while using the handset. It’s also more scratch and damage resistant with a durable gorilla glass feature.  I haven’t tried out the water-resistant feature. It can go to depths up to 1 meter. It’s compact and when you unfold this device it turns into a 6.7” screen. With the folding capabilities it does present a crease, but that doesn’t bother me. The screen design was glass on previous models but has been updated to a plastic screen. The 120 Hertz refresh rate is satisfying and I received a smoother experience. The new display can get up to 29% brighter than previous model which is impressive. The cover display also received a big upgrade from last model: from a 1.1 inch display to a 1.9 inch screen with a resolution of 512 by 260, the size upgrade makes it easier to access widgets, all your controls and easier to read notifications without having to use your main screen.

BATTERY LIFE

I did some research on this model and the battery life lasts 6 hour 36 minutes of continuous use. The battery life can be expanded by deactivating some apps that you are not using. Honestly, the battery life was not a true worry for me. Using the Battery Power Saving Mode, I found was useful. When activated, it can expand the battery life when you’re at a 10% or less by giving you an additional 2-3 hours.

SPECS

The Z Flip 3 has a storage life of 128 gbs. If you’re looking for more storage this handset also comes with 256 gbs. It’s also got 8GBs of RAM. The Samsung Z Flip 3 uses the Snapdragon 888. The front camera is 10 MP and has an impressive OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). I really like this feature especially when taking photos on the go and movement.  The 10x digital zoom helps me get some far images pulled in closer.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

I am very impressed with this device and would highly recommend it. It’s so compact, durable, has great memory space, and the camera take qualify photos and videos.

Until next month.
