First Impressions: Unfolding The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G

We unpack Samsung’s latest foldable phone to see what all the hype is about.

Easily one of the most anticipated mobile releases this year, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G from Samsung has created quite a buzz since it’s release at the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked in mid-August.

To be clear, Samsung’s first generation foldable phone was not without its hiccups, but gadget fans still applauded the Korean giant’s gumption in attempting something we’ve only previously fantasised about. Now, don’t confuse Samsung’s foldables with the clamshells of the early 2000s because we’re not simply talking about a mobile phone that closes like a compact here. What’s groundbreaking about Samsung’s innovation is that it’s the screen that’s foldable, in essence doubling the size of your smartphone display. And as with the latest iteration of any gadget, many are expecting for the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G to address whatever shortcomings its predecessors possessed to now offer a truly powerful smartphone that’s high on performance and function as opposed to mere gimmick.

BAZAAR is lucky enough to get our hands on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, and will share our first impressions of this highly coveted smartphone.

As someone who has not familiarised themselves with the original Samsung Galaxy Fold, or any other recent foldable phones for that matter, one feeling is certain once you open the box of the Galaxy Z Fold3: the phone is impressive! We even dare say it’s a thing of beauty.

No doubt, it’s the size of the screen that impresses (presented in its unfolded form), because the brain is still trying to process that one is handling an actual phone with a ridiculous 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen.
