Nice! A guy from the office has it, it's a pretty cool gadget, but the middle portion of the screen (where it bends) kinda bothers me a bit. I wouldn't necessarily spend my money on it just yet, but I'm waiting on a S23+, which will probably be my pick. How is it serving you so far, are you satisfied with the purchase?
Interesting, the middle portion of the screen doesn't bother me at all! (though I've read that it used to be WAY worse on the flip 3. That one would get an intense ugly line in the middle, yikes)
I actually have the bespoke edition that's black, yellow, and white in the back, with golden edges (see here
). It's the most beautiful phone I've ever owned, and it generally is fast. It takes good panoramic view and 1.0 zoom pictures, though the picture quality gets grainy real fast once you start zooming in.
Probably the biggest weakness of this phone is the durability of the hinge. Many people have dropped it just once
, and then the phone is unable to open fully, or the top screen stops working entirely. I don't have a personal experience to tell because I haven't dropped it yet (knock on wood). The Z4's hinge was re-designed from the 3, but the 3 had a much more durable hinge.
Owning it has definitely changed my phone habits. I'm more conscious and careful about it when I flip it closed and put it in my pocket just to make sure that I don't drop it accidentally. I also primarily use my phone on tables or desks where a potential fall is mere centimeters, and I try not to use my phone while walking. If I do (because I'm using google maps, haha) I grip my phone in a way so that it doesn't fall accidentally. If something ever happens to it I do have Samsung Care+, but I would still be without a phone for a week :/
If you're interested in the flip, I would recommend waiting for the Flip Z5 just to see if the hinge problem is fixed.
