    I ended up getting my Z Flip 3 a few days before the release day since I preordered mine. Holy crap, I never thought just pulling out my phone would gather so much attention at work, at the bar, and out in public. It was weird, but I guess it shows that people do think it's a cool concept. Just different from every other standard candy bar phone that's out there.

    They just need a bigger battery and better volume up and down keys, other than that it's a badass phone.

    • Droo

      @Investigate Old but charging on flip is 15 watt so it takes forever and the phone dies hilariously fast. Had to give it back due to how long it takes just to get a half charge


      for my use-case i don’t need a large battery so I think I would personally favor it to be thinner. However I do understand thats not the same for everyone

      @Andizzle I don’t want a chunky phone, idc about charging, charging is fast, and it’s enough for 2 days or even 1 and half or 1

      @Devin me. I love small phone since my handbag full of stuff.

      @Devin it's pretty convenient for me when my phone is in my pocket all day at work & things are bumping into it. I don't usually have an issue with the battery either unless I'm using it all day or have some game on the phone that I'm addicted to. Neat little thing. Picked up a 1st generation for $300, so either way not a bad deal

    Even when the Flip 3 is closed, it looks like a modern console. But it does smartphone tasks as well. Amazing how far we've come. Foldable displays? Micro-laptops like this? I don't need a mini SNES or PS1.

    I loved my Flip 5G, but I'm so glad I upgraded. Every concern (outside of improved battery) was addressed with the Flip 3. I couldn't not be happier.

  • Brosfight

    One aspect that I really like is that I usually pay so much attention that nothing is facing my display when i have multiple things in my pocket. Now I don't really need to worry about it because the screen is always covered. It sounds so weird, but it is a huge plus for me! I'm thining of trading my iPhone for a Flip 3... even though I'm a iPhone user since day one. Just because of that

    I totally agree that it's great to have something exciting going in in phones again. That said, still a gen or two out as a "wise purchase". It's still just "cool". But I agree, the future is gonna flip, but for now, I'll keep my Note 10+.

  • kit Corpuz

    I remember the satisfaction of flipping the razr open to answer calls and the immediate release of anger by folding it aggressively after a heated call during high school. But I think what's going to be a fun tech is a rollable phone/tablet like the rollable tvs that we have now. It would just look like a modern day scroll.

  • willg955

    I actually got a Z Flip 3 on launch mainly due to how much you always liked them. It's been an amazing phone so far and the battery life isn't even as bad as I expected it to be.

    Thank you Austin for all your great video’s I enjoy watching all your content and you really turned me into a pc and tech enthusiasts Thanks Side note: I also love how Khen brings saltiness regrets and competition to your video’s

  • Pat1980

    I originally wanted the cream but the more I look at my phantom black Flip 3, the more I realize I made the perfect choice. The previous Z Flips are fingerprint magnets. Matte black is not. Looks so stealthy.

  • Tim

    The z flip really reminds me of an over engineered galaxy A7 2018, has the same fingerprint sensor, has the same amount of battery, and has almost the same camera setup

  • Oscar Vidal

    I feel jealous. The flip 3 was your favorite and the 3rd generation is such an improvement in nearly every category across the board. The main gripe I had with the flip 3 was screen brightness, if there were no clouds in the sky I couldn't see a thing.

    I been using my flip 3 to watch video in portrait by only flipping it slightly and laying it on its side. Been working well so far. I need to figure out how to do the slide down thing you showed looks useful.

    Before watching the video, this is THE review I've been waiting for...from a real long-term flip user

  • unmakeyourself

    Having run the Z-Flip for the last year, I adore it, but the nerf to everything else was what broke it. Once it's up to par with the flagships, I'll pay extra for the flip

    • OrdinaryGamer

      @unmakeyourself well the cameras ill agree with but it has a SD 888 it would slaughter an s9 in processing power

    • unmakeyourself

      @LucidLando like, lower camera, processor, etc. In comparison to the s9 i was running the year before

    • LucidLando

      What nerf?

    • Timothy White
      Timothy White

      It's pretty damn close. Man so keep your money saved it might be flagship tier next year or 2

  • Le John
    Le John

    Yep I agree about the wow factor . Owned the note 10+ 512gb and no one could be bothered. Changed to a zfold 2 . Till today its a conversation starter and still a head turner . Out right the phone that draws the most attention

  • Khiriel Khanafie Kifli

    I like these types of video. It's literally an honest review that is really informative. 🙌

  • RaisinBar

    I love the Z Flip 3, and I've been holding off a new phone since the S10 until I found the perfect phone, and the Z Flip is it. It's developed enough and has good specs, pricing is low enough for me to get it at 35 a month for 24 months (Canadian Dollars) which I plan to keep for 2 or more years as long as it works, and the half folded has many uses for me, and since I use my PC a lot my phones stays on my desk and I can quickly check notifications without unlocking, and it just has that novelty on top of its actual use. The compact design also helps, along with the fact that I won't scratch up my screen in my pocket or desk. Finally, the design, it's just nice, and then all the stuff you said.

  • Akash Sarda
    Akash Sarda

    I thought people who want a small phone (including me) want a manageable phone so we don't drop it while reaching for the corners, not so it fits in pockets. PS - Loved the iPhone mini

  • Michael Kamphuis
    Michael Kamphuis

    I had the Flip 3 for a little over a week and really did love most of it. But in the end, the aspect ratio of a few of my horizontal apps so was skewed, it was un-usuable and I had to return it :(

  • 安迪

    I hope that some day Samsung leaves Google behind with Android and build their own system.

  • Kevin Gonzalez

    I honestly love my S21 ultra and it's hard to think about switching phones but I honestly would think about getting the zfold if the screen was better.

    • PSYCHO

      A long. NOT along.

  • dmelton_

    With the future of the Galaxy Note series in a weird place, this has been the only phone I'm genuinely interested in. Guess I'll have to see what happens next year.

  • Pat1980

    Fold 3, Flip 3, Razr 5G, and Surface Duo are the only interesting devices currently out there in a sea of slab. When closed, the Flip 3 looks better than the original PlayStation 4. And the OG PS4 design is gorgeous.

    • PSYCHO

      LG Wing too and LG V60 with the dual-screen case which has better aspect ratios vs the Duo for watching movies and web browsing. P.s. Why the hell are you comparing the Z Flip 3 to a PS4?? 😂😂😂

  • Hades The Pyro

    Sidekey swipe is a feature I missed from my note 8 and 9. Glad it's here for the folding phones at least.

  • Ese1Pac

    Hmm. I’m upgrading from my 11 pro max soon. Hard for me to go back to Android since I’ve already tried switching over 3 different times but this phone looks really cool. Might actually try this out 🤔

  • Ian Slade

    I really liked this review, you’ve got a new sub! How has the crease held up? The only thing stopping me from buying this phone is the stress fracture in the crease that is being reported, and was rife for the original Flip / Flip 5G

  • Nihal S
    Nihal S

    i like this review, its more honest. from someone that can use higher end phones, he chose to use a z flip. thats cool. I can't see myself getting one just yet. To me its still in its beta test phase and the people who can afford it are the beta testers like with every new tech. Keep it up guys, please improve it. Folding glass in new and it needs to be perfected.

    I have large hands, the z fold feels really well when it's either closed or open. I like that it can replace a note and I'm more than willing to get on board later down the line.

    Samsung needs to scale up the zflip to 14” per half and make the hardware optimized for Windows12. They could take on the MacBook head-on. Bottom half could be a fully-customizable touch-screen keyboard/trackpad

      @Slurples I’m not Australian but from what I’ve seen in the news they are only importing the Astra-Zeneca vaccine which everyone is refusing to take, so no one is getting vaccinated and covid is still massive there. They also implement lockdowns as soon as the cases climb at all, so they’re on number 8 now with plans for a ninth.

I do get your point how amazing z flip is.

    The overheating issue is interesting, something I didn’t think about. But if you think about it, isn’t that kind of a an advantage since the battery won’t deteriorate as fast because of the heat?

  • Uthman Baksh
    Uthman Baksh

    At first I was kinda upset that Samsung killed off the Note to focus more on the foldable phones. But seeing how the latest Z Flip and even the Z Fold turned out, I think this will pay off in the long run for Samsung. Even though the Z Flip is cool, I still prefer the iPhone.

    I honestly like the form factor of the LG wing more, but they had to go and put budget specs on that phone. When will companies learn that enthusiasts looking for quirky phones don't want subpar specs. Same reason the ZTE axon m pissed me off.


    Just got my 256GB Z Flip 3 for $298 direct from Samsung, their customer service walked me through everything, and I got a new pair of Buds 2 included free of charge. Samsung FTW!!!

  • Pat1980

    Duo is the better complementary device to a Flip 3. Can do tent mode and whatnot. Better at multi-tasking than the Fold. Two screens beats one bending display. But wait for the next one. First gen feels very dated.

  • voltare2amstereo

    I got the RAZR 5g, the out side screen gets a lot of work with watching videos when I don't want the big screen open.
