The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is here. But do you know how to make the most of its features? We tell you right here!
It folds. And yes, it also folds out. Samsung continues to bet on its family of foldable mobiles, and the booking figures have exceeded expectations. It seems that the market for mobiles with flexible display has already opened and is here to stay. If you are one of those who have taken the leap and bet on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G you will be interested in this article. Here we are going to tell you several keys on how to get the most out of the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G. And is that the new features included in this mobile that unfolds and becomes a tablet make it capable of many things you may not know.
You Can Take It Anywhere, Even In The Shower
One of the criticisms that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 continued to receive, although it improved significantly over its predecessor, the original Galaxy Z Fold, was the absence of the IP68 certification that protects the terminals from dust and water in short, shallow immersions. To save the mobile from any everyday situation, go. Well, now the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G lands with IPX8 certification, with similar protection that supports immersions in the liquid element for up to 30 minutes at a depth of less than one meter. You can even take it with you to the shower without a problem.
And all this in a noticeably better body. On the one hand thanks to the engineering and design of Samsung, which has managed to reduce millimetres and milligrams the whole. All this without reducing the size of the screens. So now it is a lighter and more compact mobile. Specifically, it occupies 67.1 x 158.2 x 16.0/14.4 mm when folded, and 128.1 x 158.2 x 6.4 mm when fully open. All this in 271 grams of weight. To carry it in your pocket without strange sensations.
And on the other hand by the finishes and protection that surrounds the terminal. Now the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G has a thin and flexible glass screen protection that makes it 80% more durable than the previous version. In addition, the aluminium used for the hinge is the strongest formula used by Samsung to date. All this with screens protected with Gorilla Glass Victus glass, capable of withstanding falls of up to 2 meters high. It is a foldable and very resistant cell phone.
More Productive Thanks To The S Pen
Another of the new features for which the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G should catch your attention is the support for the S Pen. Although it does not arrive with the device, there are two versions of Samsung’s stylus that you can buy for this mobile. A smaller and without some qualities such as air gestures, and another more advanced and somewhat more elongated that, in addition, can be used in both the Z Fold3 and Z Fold2. Samsung has already developed cases with a hole to carry this S Pen always on you and make your Galaxy Z Fold3 5G a new version of the Galaxy Note.
But beware, the idea is not just to use the pen on the 7.6-inch screen to draw. Samsung has implemented all the functions associated with the S Pen to date. Notes, audio synchronized with notes, transcriptions, drawing geometric shapes… Basically, it’s like having a Samsung Galaxy Note inside this Z Fold3 5G. The best of both worlds.
More Practical Multitasking
The inner screen, the foldable one, is not just a more “tweaked” format for watching movies. Samsung already exploited the Flex mode in the previous edition to place this mobile folded as a laptop, for example, to write on one half with the keyboard and see the text on the other. Now it also further develops multitasking to make it a productive and useful mobile inside. It’s not just for leisure.
You can bring up to 3 different applications to this flexible arena, choosing what space you want each of them to occupy and on which half of the screen. But it also adds all kinds of tricks to get the most out of it. It has the Edge tab where you can store recurring apps, you can save the multitasking configuration with the apps and the order or arrangement that you like to bring them to the screen at any time, or you can even open two Word documents, each in one part of the terminal. In short, a mobile that to satisfy the most demanding or those who need a real working tool in the day today.
All-screen. But Everything Everything
Apart from the flexible screen technology with that layer of thin glass capable of folding in half without problems, Samsung has implemented an interesting novelty. Its AMOLED-type Infinity Flex display is no longer perforated to include the camera. Now Samsung has reduced the number of pixels or pixel density in the area where the sensor is located.
The result is a circle through which light and information pass to take selfies with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G deployed, but that you will hardly appreciate when you are watching a video, a series or a movie at full size. The result is quite amazing. So you can leave aside the dark wallpapers or black areas to hide the camera. More customization options on a screen that, this time, is infinite and has no holes.
Now Everything Is Adapted To The Folding Screen
But the important thing about a flexible cell phone is not only its resistance and its body capable of withstanding bending and splashes. One of the great assets of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold family is being able to use applications indistinctly on either screen. Even switching from one to the other without interrupting the experience. Very useful, for example, when you are reading a news item on the outer 6.7-inch screen (now also at 120Hz speed), and want to enjoy the accompanying video in full screen on the inner 7.6-inch flexible panel. It will all be there available when you open the handset.
Well, Samsung has worked on making this happen with all apps. Or at least with most of the ones you can install on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G. To do this, it has collaborated with the developers of the main apps to create formats that not only allow you to switch between screens, but also adapt to the multitasking that we discussed earlier or even the Flex mode so useful that allows the hinge of the terminal. In addition, a new feature that you will find in the settings section will allow applications that are not yet optimized to allow the flow between screens.
That is, you can take them from the outer screen to the inner screen without problems or stops. So it is a more “normal” mobile. Where the user experience is no longer limited to Samsung’s own apps. Everything works fast and is very comfortable, both on the outer and inner screen. Or even when switching between them. A complete, powerful and resistant experience.
