After trying many other types of smartphones and taking a long break from Android, my first Samsung device was the ill-fated Note 7. I was so impressed with that phone that despite the battery issues I preordered a Note 8 and later a Note 10. I have no real complaints for any of them, as each represented an excellent refinement of traditional hardware that offered the best smartphone experience available. That refinement is finally reaching the Z Fold line, with some caveats. Let's not pretend that this is the best smartphone experience available; it's the same energy as the Note, but applied to something entirely different, and that's really the point. Samsung has taken a concept most people would have said was completely impossible as recently as a few years ago and made it not just work, but work rather well, to the point that if you buy this instead of a normal smartphone you can rely on it. That is impressive all on its own, and echoes the push to big screens that Samsung led many years ago which shaped the modern smartphone landscape. So, why buy this phone? Rather unsurprisingly, if you find yourself doing anything that would benefit from more screen real estate but don't find it practical to have a tablet or laptop at hand, this makes a world of difference. This review is typed entirely on the Z Fold 3, much more comfortably than it could have been on my Note 10. Reading is also greatly improved, for both text and comics. It also offers a great deal more space to work with when drawing with an S Pen, and for playing games that benefit from the large square viewing area. It's also actually easier on the pocket than a Note 10 due to the tradeoff of width for thickness, and a little easier to use the left side if front screen one-handed due to its narrow profile. Why might you steer clear of this one? If you need all day batter from your phone with heavy use and no ability to charge, and can get by with the smaller screen (or use a supplementary device like a tablet or laptop) then there's little appeal, especially when you can afford to get a better phone and better tablet separately for lower cost. This is also not a great device for video content given the prevalence of wide-screen ratios, which means you end up with black margins that make the video worse than it would be on an ordinary phone. You also can't use the screen-off memo from the Note series with the front screen, only the inside screen, rendering that feature far less useful. No removable storage is also painful if you like to carry a lot of content on your phone, and the cameras are passable, not top-of-the-line. Bottom line: The Z Fold 3 is not a perfect device. I think more than anything else, I would have liked to have an included stylus and/or great battery life. But the quibbles are minor - the battery life isn't bad, and the stylus support is there albeit without onboard storage. The screen crease is still present, albeit inoffensive and usually unnoticed. And apps are still getting used to the form factor, which leads to some quirks. But that's about all I can say about the downsides - and again, for a fully functional device that can fold in half with the durability to be a daily driver, that is incredible. I highly recommend trying one of these to anyone who stands to benefit from the versatility of the inside screen more than they stand to lose from the compromises mentioned above. The Z Fold 3 easily earns 5 stars not because it is a perfect phone, but because it is a marvelous remaining of what a mobile device can be.
Once you go fold you never go back. Seriously this is a gamechanger, it is like having both a small handheld and mini-tablet in one. The screen quality is the best I have ever seen. I had an S20 Ultra. On paper, the S20 has better specs. In reality, the Fold is breathtaking so got the original as it is more petite and I liked that, plus double the storage which is important as no SD card. The small screen is useful and the bigger folding screen is incredible. Read reviews about all sorts of teething problems, but experienced none so far. Looking now at smartphones that do not fold makes me wonder why this technological evolution has taken so long. I would give this 10 stars if I could.
I've seen the phone in the store and was impress how ever the experience to just buy the phone was very ...mmm.. horrible the sales agent could not order the phone and the store assistant manager could not offer any solution and talk to me as if I was inferior mine wise to his and it took too long to get device and too long to purchase item almost 3 hours in store finally I ended up canceling the order
Unreal device. It's like living in the future. It is a bit silly to use in candybar mode, but not a disaster. Very difficult to type on the front display, Gboard works well, but doesn't have split-screen when unfolded. Whatever you do, put Niagra (beta) on it. Amazing.
Fantastic device but need time getting used to the small battery capacity. Scaling could probably better, as for ex. YT content doesnt fill the screen, unless you zoom in but that cuts off content. Other apps as well. Overall though, it's a nice device. Display is really on the outside and inside.
3 time the charm! I didn't trust the build quality of Fold 1 and Fold2, but now have confidence to own and use it for daily use without worrying it will break.
I'm glad T-mobile 5G works in this phone with my grandfather plan. No need to upgrade to newer and expensive plan.
Good phone. Very versatile. Only issues are sub flagship cameras but thats not what i prrsonally use it for. Beautiful screen. Fold on the larger display will be apparent but small price to pay for a foldable. Price could be better but still an excellent value in my opinion.
I love shopping from Bestbuy. Staff dont put pressure on you but also more than enough information you need. I purchased Z Fold 3 with a better price than my carrier and process was fast and amazing. Thanks to Constantine and Robert for helping me out.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review: The best foldable phone just got betterThe Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 delivers a more durable design than before, S Pen support and better multitasking features, but the battery life and price could be better.
A:AnswerNo, but 256 gigs is sufficient memory for me. You can get the 512 for only $100 more on T-mobile for $1399. But I opted to save the $100 because at $1299 it made it a little more money friendly to me. And I used the money for a case anyway.
