Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 test: that improvements compared to the previous one for a very successful smartphone

Let’s start with the 1.9 inch “outdoor” screen, which can be easily accessed when the phone is folded. The latter allows you to display your notifications by sliding your finger to the right, your widgets by sliding your finger to the left and shortcuts by making a movement down. The “Always on Display” mode is of course the game to display certain information permanently. The whole is customizable with various types of clocks and background images.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 test: that improvements compared to the previous one for a very successful smartphone

After a rather successful galaxy z flip3, but not completely free from a few small flaws, Samsung gently evolve his copy for the Galaxy Z Flip4. The South Korean brand intends to establish this type of valve phone format a little more among the other more conventional models by offering a more classy design with a wider format, a more interactive external screen, better photo performance, a plus great autonomy, but also in raw calculation for an easier life. The Galaxy Z Flip4 definitely belongs to the category of compact smartphones that have lots of tips to help you stay in your connected universe. We were able to test it for a while and here are our impressions.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4

Main technical characteristics:

  • 6.7 -inch AMOLED screen, 1080×2636 pixels 120 Hz
  • 1.9 inch AMOLED screen, 112×300 60 Hz pixels
  • Chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
  • 8 GB of RAM
  • 128/256/512 GB of non -extensible internal storage
  • Double 12+12 megapixel photo sensor
  • 10 megapixel front sensor
  • Fingerprint reader on the profile
  • 3700 mAh battery compatible charging 25 watts
  • Operating system: Android 13 with one ONE UI 5 software overlay.0


Undertaken, The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 takes up the lines of its predecessor, But still brings a little more modernity, especially in terms of profiles which are here slightly flatte and go from mats to brilliant. The mobile is also a little less wide that the previous one offering a measure of 71.9 mm against 73.6 mm. It is also lower: 165.2 mm against 167.3 mm for the Galaxy Z Flip3. It only does 6.9 mm thick, which makes it one of the finest on the market when it is completely open.

The Galaxy Z Flip4 is in direct competition with the Motorola Razr 2022 which offers more generous dimensions with a height of 167 mm and a width of 79.79 mm, which is not to displease allowing to have a format D ‘wider internal screen when the device is unfolded and less in the height direction, which is the case on the Galaxy Z Flip4. Folded, The Galaxy Z Flip4 is extremely compact and allows you to be easily slipped into a pocket.

The hinge was reviewed in relation to the previous model. It is robust enough to allow an opening according to the angle that we want And thus maintain the more or less open device that can be practical to take selfie, for example. The hinge is always able to withstand more than 200,000 manipulations, which represents 100 openings/closings per day for 5 years. When the mobile is closed, There is still a slight space between the two parts which can leave a little dust accumulates when you have the device in your pocket. This is also the case on the Motorola Razr 2022. It is for this reason that the Galaxy Z Flip4 is only certified IPX8 therefore completely waterproof, But not dust.

The Galaxy Z Flip4 is available in several colors. In addition, on the Samsung site, it is possible to personalize the shells to obtain a completely original variation among several hundred color association possibilities, including for the hinge. The external screen is installed on a plate that occupies the entire width of the device. There are the two photo sensors also registered in it offering perfect integration and exemplary finishes. The flash is deported to the colorful part.

If we go around the device, we notice the presence of the standby button which also serves as a fingerprint reader. There is the button to manage the volume located just above. There is a microphone on the upper profile and the SIM card drawer is installed on the left side of the mobile. This one can only bear one card. If you want to have two lines with the Galaxy Z Flip4, you must subscribe to the ESIM option of your operator, a feature supported by the Samsung smartphone.
Finally, on the lower profile, there are two microphones, a speaker and a USB-C connector. Note the presence of another speaker, just above the screen. The Galaxy Z Flip4 offers stereo sound. It is rather coherent and relatively balanced, but not very powerful despite everything. It is obviously lacking in bass and can be used mainly for system sounds and watch a small video, but listening is much better with a helmet. The sound saturated when you push the volume a little too high. Note compatibility with the Dolby Atmos format.

In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy Z Flip4 is 5G compatible and offers 6th Wi-Fi, the fastest standard currently available. This is also the case with Motorola Razr 2022. We can also count on compatibility with the NFC standard for contactless payment. The Samsung Pay service is also there, which can be activated without having to open the device, just by identifying with the digital imprint. Unfortunately, this function is still not available with Google Pay which requests the opening of the mobile to carry out the same operation.

An external touch screen of the same size as the previous one

The external amoled screen of the Galaxy Z Flip4 is as large as that of its predecessor, or 1.9 inch against 2.7 inches outside the Motorola Razr 2022. He’s still tactile, displays the time and comes alive after two fast tesses. We can then scroll the widgets installed to display the music player, the alarms, the voice recorder, the timer, the calendar, the weather, the program of the day, the number of steps, contacts or shortcuts to objects connected recorded within the Samsung SmartThings Domotic Application. Compared to the previous one, It is now possible to respond to messages with predefined responses or emojis. Same assessment as on the previous one, the external screen is very practical for consulting notifications and interacting with certain applications, but it remains, to our taste, not yet ergonomic In terms of widgets and the development of these could help more interactivity in order to have less to open the mobile for this.

An internal screen always of excellent quality

The internal screen of the Galaxy Z Flip4 still uses a 6.7 -inch flexible amoled slab in diagonal when it is completely open. It is always in 22: 9. There are still edges all around the display surface. They do not bother daily, especially when it comes to making gestures to navigate in the menus. The edges are quite fine. We take advantage of a 120 Hz refresh frequency. The fluidity is adaptive which means that it is the mobile that manages the frequency to adapt it according to the application in use and thus find the best compromise between fluidity and autonomy. It is however possible to block the frequency at 60 Hz.

For display, the parameters offer shallow and natural colors. It is possible to play on the white balance to get a warmer or colder shade. The settings proposed by default are completely satisfactory on the device we were able to test. Its brightness is sufficient to use it outdoors and in the dark, it does not cause eye fatigue. Screen sensitivity of the screen can be increased. The screen is protected by a film that can be removed, if necessary. There is a hallmark at the top, in the center housing the 10 megapixel sensor (against 32 megapixels on the Motorola Razr 2022).

Concerning the fold, It must be recognized thatShe sees herself and feels in the middle of the device When putting the eye or finger on it. It’s a bit annoying at the start of the use of mobile, but we get used to it. The fold is still relatively discreet. If you don’t want to see a fold, you have to look at the side of Motorola Razr 2022.

Android 13 with a one UI overlay

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 is animated by Android 13 with a one UI 5 overlay.0 Developed by Samsung. If you are a regular at the Mobiles of the South Korean brand, you will not be disoriented. We are entitled to a customizable interface, the possibility of navigating with gestures, a sidebar if necessary, an application manager which allows you to switch from one to the other very quickly or to launch some of them most recently used. It is possible to make a link with a computer under windows.

Several applications are preinstalled including those of Microsoft (Office, OneDrive, Linkedin and Outlook) and those of Google. Facebook, Spotify and Netflix are also one of the applications that are immediately found when using the smartphone. Of course, Samsung also offers its applications including SmartTHings, Samsung Health, Samsung Pay, Bixby, AR Zone, Samsung TV Plus or Smart Switch to quickly go from one mobile to another by copying data. There are many parameters To organize and manage the mobile. They are well organized and a search engine allows you to find the desired option.
On our test model, the Google Play update date from November 1, 2022 and that of security of December 1, 2022 which is quite recent for tests carried out at the end of December.

Increased performance compared to the previous generation

The Galaxy Z Flip4 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, Like the Motorola Razr 2022. It is associated with 8 GB of RAM without the possibility of going further what certain models offer at Realme, Vivo, Honor, Motorola or Oppo, for example. However, rest assured, that is enough in any case, because we were able to enjoy a good software experience with this platform. Indeed, Power is largely sufficient to benefit from a fluid interface, launch of applications in a very short time and to be able to switch from one to the other in an instant. No jerk was noted during our tests and the mobile remained perfectly tempered, even subject to the test when it was a question of testing the raw performance of the. No game is resistant to him and there too, the fun experience is very satisfactory authorizing the game of the most gourmet titles in resources with great fluidity and a very good gameplay.
In order to compare the gross performance of the mobile with others, we have submitted it to several tests of which here are the main results. The length test shows that the full potential of the chipset is not really used. Indeed, it is during the very first minutes, but then, the performance is maintained at around 80%.

What is worth in multimedia ?

For the multimedia side, the Galaxy Z Flip4 is able to read multimedia content from streaming platforms with a full HD definition since it is compatible with the Widevine L1 protocol. For the photos, he embarks Two 12 megapixel sensors on the back (on the front shutter), as on the previous model as well as a 10 megapixel selfie sensor. Note that you can also use the two sensors to take your selfie while positioning the device open to 90 degrees, the external screen then serving as a framing window. The results are better, in this configuration and the more possibilities. The main sensor of the Galaxy Z Flip4 is a little larger than that of the Galaxy Z Flip3 which allows them to capture a little more light in the scenes.
The camera application interface is very classic with several options available at the top of the screen. Then there is the framing zone then the 0.5x and 1x modes to immediately access the ultra-angle sensor. Several modes are accessible: portrait, photo, video, more. This last menu allows access to other modes: pro, professional video, single take, night, food, panorama, super slowdown, slow motion, hyperlapse, portrait video and view of the realization (double view). It is possible to customize the interface by adding one of these modes to those already available on the main page of the application. The application interface adapts to the opening of the internal screen offering a full view if it is completely unfolded or offering a view only on the upper part of the screen if it is slightly folded also switch to the lower part the options normally available at the top.

The Galaxy Z Flip4 Book of photos that we found completely satisfactory. The image is quite detailed, taking advantage of a fairly fair and pleasant colorimetry, because rather natural, without forcing too much. The shooting at night are just as correct with a good contrast. The shots in ultra-angle mode are also interesting because they benefit from a suitable dive and a low distortion. We can blame him for a slight lack of contrast.
Finally, note the possibility of filming with an ultra HD definition up to 60 frames per second. We appreciate the limitation of the bounds of the device, in particular thanks to its integrated stabilizer.

Better autonomy thanks to a larger battery

The battery of the Motorola Razr 2022 is 3500 mAh against 3,700 mAh for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 which saw its battery enjoy more capacity since the previous model had 3300 mAh and that the fairly low autonomy was one of its main reproaches. With the 3700 mAh of the Galaxy Z Flip4, It is possible to last a little more than a day with a single load which is completely satisfactory. We can even go a little further if we are careful not to open the device for totally inappropriate reasons. Mobile can be loaded wireless and offers the reversed load. He also takes care of wired, of course, offering a gain of 28% after 15 minutes. It is a little faster than on the previous model, but not yet the level of other mobiles, even mid -range which can bear the load up to 67 watts against 25 watts maximum here. The Motorola Razr 2022 recharges faster than the Galaxy Z Flip4. Remember that Samsung does not provide load, but only the cable to recharge the device.

Box contents

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 smartphone is delivered with a USB-C to USB-C cable and an extraction tool for the SIM card drawer.

Our opinion

The Galaxy Z Flip4 brilliantly develops the previous model by offering increased performance, capacities a little superior photo, as well as a slightly better and a little faster load possibility. The design is also more successful on the 2022 model which makes a copy ultimately interesting on this particularly compact mobile when it is folded, which is very practical on a daily basis. We can criticize him for not offering more interaction on the external screen, but the information displayed remains relevant.

Sold at the recommended price of 1109 euros, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is a high -end smartphone which is aimed at users who favor above all the style and compactness offered by this unique format. If you are looking for a phone turned towards productivity and capable of turning into a small tablet, you will have to go to the side of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, presented at the same time as its little brother.

Samsung having skipped the Galaxy Z Flip 2 to go directly to version 3, this Galaxy Z Flip 4 is the third version of the most sold folding smartphone of the Korean manufacturer. For this 2022 cuvée, Samsung has refined the design, added a larger capacity battery (3,700 mAh against 3,300 mAh previously) as well as a new processor in the presence of Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 from Qualcomm.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 brings enough improvements to crack those who hesitate to go to the folding form ? Should the Z Flip 3 owners change for this model ? The answer to these questions in our full test.

A more successful design and always as attractive

Test Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4

The design and size of the Z Flip 4 changes very little compared to the previous model, but it is still as pleasant to handle. This is largely explained by the very long format of the phone which allows you to accommodate a 6.7 -inch screen in a phone which is only 71.9 mm wide. For comparison, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is 78.1 mm wide for the same screen diagonal.

Once folded, the Z Flip 4 is much thicker than a classic smartphone, but very easily enters a pocket thanks to its length which for the occasion is divided by two.

Regarding changes compared to Z Flip 3, you must have the compass in the eye to see the differences. The dimensions have been reduced by 0.8 mm in height when it is unfolded and 1.5 mm when it is folded. It is also 0.3 mm wider. Its thickness does not move. On the other hand, he gains a little overweight with 4 g more on the scale to reach 187 g, which remains reasonable.

If you ask yourself the question of the solidity of the hinge after opening and closing the phone, Samsung has certified that it was thought to hold for at least 200,000 openings and closings. If you consult your smartphone 50 times a day, it is about 100 openings and closings. What to hold approximately 2000 days, or five years. A youtubeur managed to fold the Z Flip 3 more than 400,000 times before the hinge yielded. In use, we can confirm that the hinge inspires confidence. To the point of making the opening with a slightly laborious hand.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 Deplree Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 External screen

The back of the phone is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus+, the best level of protection to date. The phone has the good taste of having a matte finish that does not mark fingerprints. Only the upper part of the phone with its double camera module and the second screen are shiny. Overall, the smartphone remains clean despite the many manipulations. The aluminum frame is also very robust. Samsung did a great job to trust us when we handle the phone.

The secondary screen is as wide as on the previous model and the cameras modules stand out very little from the device, which is appreciable. When the phone is on a flat surface, it is not based on the camera block, which saves it from being scratched and offers perfect stability on the phone.

Regarding the folding of the screen, it is only visible from certain angles or when dark content is displayed while one is in a clear environment. Finally, we feel it when you pass over it, even if it is quite rare to put your finger as high when you scroll through a web page or its social networks. On the folding glass slab is plastic screen protection that should not be removed.

To finish this owner’s round, we find on the lower edge the USB-C connector, a speaker grid and two microphones. A third microphone is under the upper edge. The left edge houses the hatch that can accommodate a nanosim card. Finally, the fingerprint reader (very reactive) is on the switchboard button. Just above, we find the volume control buttons. They are also positioned a little too high for our taste when the phone is unfolded. This is the price to pay to have them at your fingertips when the phone is folded.

You understand, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is a real success, both in terms of its ergonomics and its manufacturing quality.

A fluid and bright screen

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 screen

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is equipped with an AMOLED screen with a 22: 9 ratio, a 6.7 -inch diagonal with a definition of 2640 x 1080 pixels. The slab can go up to 120 Hz for perfect fluidity, or go down to 60 Hz to save energy without the navigation experience being degraded. We can say it, the screen is almost identical to that of Z Flip 3, which is a very good thing.

According to the tests of our 01LAB, the Z FLIP 4 has an average brightness of 894 CD/M2. The phone is able to go up to 1266 cd/m2 in HDR light peak. Excellent results which offer it perfect readability in all light conditions. As you can see below, the Galaxy S22 Ultra remains the phone with the brightest screen to date.

As we are used to Samsung, two screen modes are accessible in the parameters: “lively” and “natural”. They are perfectly named as the first displays shimmering colors that flatter the eye and the second a duller rendering, but also more realistic. With the “lively” mode, we managed to measure an average delta e of 4.32, that is a colorimetric drift perceptible to the naked eye. The “natural” mode does better with a 3.49 delta e. It’s very good, but the competition does much better on this price tranche. We will cite for example the Xiaomi 12 Pro, the iPhone 13 Pro or the Oppo Find X5 Pro which are exemplary in the matter.

Galaxy Z Flip 4 screen

The secondary screen also benefits from an Amoled slab, with a 1.9 inch diagonal and a definition of 260 x 512 pixels. It is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus+ as the rest of the shell. The screen is bright enough to be readable in all circumstances, which is particularly appreciable to consult the time when its notifications without having to open the phone, we will come back to it in the interface part.

With its Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung once again shows its know-how in the design of oled tiles of excellent quality. If you are ready to be over the feeling of the fold under your finger, the screen of the Z Flip 4 does not have much to envy those of non -folding screens.

Very good performances, but.

The phone has a Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chip from Qualcomm equipped with an Adreno 730 SOC. It is simply the most powerful SOC available to date on an Android smartphone. Add 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage in UFS 3.1 and you have a real racing beast on paper.

On the Benchmark Antutu, the Z Flip 4 displays a 949 728 points score, just in front of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and its Exynos 2200 SOC, but behind the Xiaomi 12 Pro equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 at the start of the year. An astonishing result since we expected to find the folding smartphone of the Korean brand at the top of the ranking and beyond the million points.

A score which is explained by the constraints with which the engineers had to compose from Samsung. The phone is made up of two separate “bodies” held by the hinge. The SOC is in the upper part of the phone, which is felt when the phone rises in temperature when it is strongly requested as during the 3DMARK stability test.

The latter allows to measure the level of throttling of the telephone which corresponds to a drop in the frequency of the SOC (and therefore of performance) to avoid smartphone to rise too much in temperature. It is also a choice of engineers to preserve the battery and the set of components of the product.

The 3DMARK stability score unfortunately confirmed our suspicions. To promote autonomy, Samsung has chosen to bride in a fairly violent way the performance of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 Gen1. After only a few minutes thoroughly, phone performance dropped by 60.5 % before stabilizing, which explains the very bad result of 39.5 of the Z Flip 4. By way of comparison, the performance of the ultra S22 drops “only” of 32 % on this same test.

The good news is that it prevents the phone from overheating. With an amplitude of temperature of only 17 degrees, Samsung masters its subject.

That said, after several weeks of testing, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 knows no slowdown on a daily basis, which is reassuring despite the theoretical tests. The observation is similar if you want to run gourmet games. We submitted Fortnite Mobile to him which turned very well with the maximum graphic presets and 30 images per second. Under these conditions, the game was fluid, despite a slightly embarrassing heating on the upper part of the phone after 10 minutes of play. It is worse than the ZenFone 9 equipped with the same SOC, but the Asus phone does not fold in half !

Regarding the performance of the Z Flip 4, remember that they will satisfy the vast majority of users. Only the most “hardcore” players will not find themselves. For all the others, you can go there with your eyes closed, the last folding of Samsung is perfectly reactive on a daily basis.

Interface: Oneui folds in half

Galaxy Z Flip 4 interface

We no longer present the excellent Oneui interface of Samsung, here in its version 4.1.1, which perfectly completes Android 12 on the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The phone being folding and equipped with two screens, the Korean manufacturer offers features taking advantage of this specificity.

Let’s start with the 1.9 inch “outdoor” screen, which can be easily accessed when the phone is folded. The latter allows you to display your notifications by sliding your finger to the right, your widgets by sliding your finger to the left and shortcuts by making a movement down. The “Always on Display” mode is of course the game to display certain information permanently. The whole is customizable with various types of clocks and background images.

Samsung Galaxy Lab Z Flip 4

It is also possible to use secure functions like Samsung Pay directly from the external screen by unlocking the phone by fingerprint or facial recognition. Among our favorite widgets, there is the one who displays your three favorite contacts to call them without having to open the main screen. In the same way, you can answer a call directly from this screen, which will activate the speaker. You can choose to configure the phone to answer a call directly by opening the phone and close it to end it.

But the most useful feature is undoubtedly the possibility of taking photos with the two cameras modules without opening the phone thanks to the small screen that serves as a viewfinder. To do this, press the switching button twice. You can then go from one camera module to the other from a simple movement to take photos or videos with the Grand Angle or the Ultra-Grand-Angle. Portrait mode is also part.

Flex Galaxy Z Flip 4 mode

The main screen is not to be outdone, with the return of the famous “Flex” mode which allows to take advantage of the double display of the screen when the latter is folded at right angles. Some applications natively do so. This is the case of the camera, the Samsung calendar, the gallery, Google Meet, VLC or YouTube. For the others, it will be necessary to “force” this mode in the parameters.

When you do, the application will be displayed on the upper part of the screen. The lower part will display a series of shortcuts to display notifications, take a screenshot, adjust the brightness as well as the volume. The last option transforms the lower part of the screen. A much less intuitive option than pressing the upper part of the screen directly with your finger. While waiting for more and more developers to take advantage of this hybrid display, Samsung gives us the right tools to use it, even if this is still far from being perfect.

Photo: Good performance, but a remarkable absence

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is equipped with two camera modules on the back and one at the front:

  • Grand-angle of 12 Mpx with opening f/1.8, 24 mm and Ois.
  • Ultra-large angle of 12 Mpx with f/2.2, 123 ° opening.
  • 10 MP selfie with f/2.4, 26 mm opening.

On a high -end phone sold more than 1000 euros, the absence of a telephoto module is regrettable.

Great angle and ultra-large angle

Ultra wide angle Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4Ultra wide angle Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4Ultra wide angle Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is less well equipped in photography than other high -end smartphones from Samsung like Galaxy S22 Ultra or the Galaxy Z Fold 4. However, it is doing very well thanks to the software processing applied to the photos by the Korean manufacturer.

We find the bright colors characteristics of the rendering offered by Samsung. Without being very realistic, they have the merit of flattering the eye. The dive of the clichés is excellent, especially in the center. We also note that colorimetric continuity is ensured between the high angle module and the ultra-large angle. We grant him an additional point for his good dynamic management. Even in complex situations, HDR mode manages to properly unclog the shadows to offer a very balanced result.

Unsurprisingly, the ultra-wide-angle module is less good with less luminous shots and a visible deformation in the corners. Always practical in certain situations and offering photos despite everything usable, this module is clearly not in terms of what is expected on this price range.

Digital zoom

In the absence of a telephoto, we must use the digital zoom. The quality is very well preserved in X2, even until X4 thanks to a control of the mastered image. Beyond that, it is not catastrophic, but we are light years from the impressive zoom of the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

By night

Despite larger sensors, the night shots of Z Flip 4 are not radically different from those taken by its predecessor. That being said, we must admit that the result is successful, especially if you activate the night mode which brings a lot more light and details, at the cost of a longer exposure time. The observation is even more blatant on the ultra-large-angle, although the latter tends to whiten the yellow light that lights up the scene.

Portrait and selfies

Grand-angle photo without portrait modeGrand-angle photo with portrait modePortrait Camera Selfie Galaxy Z Flip 4Photo Selfie Grand-Angle Galaxy Z Flip 4Selfie with portrait mode on the main angle camera Selfie with ultra-angle camera

The portrait mode that uses the Grand-Angle sensor is honorable, as you can see in the photos of the crazy hair doll. Despite its errors, the cutting is more than correct given the difficulty in isolate all the parts of the subject compared to the background.

The first selfie is made with the front camera of 10 megapixels. The result is good, but the background blur very flattened. The other selfies are made with the main camera module using the second screen once the phone is folded. We immediately see the difference in the details and the quality of the background blur. On the other hand, difficult not to see your hand when you take pictures with the ultra-large-angle module.


The Z Flip 4 allows you to film up to 4K at 60 i/s using the main camera module. You can also film yourself in selfie with the folded phone. Under its conditions, impossible to film beyond the 30 i/s in 4K, which is already not bad. The “super stability” mode works very well, but this time limits the videos to full HD to 30 i/s.

Autonomy and load

Autonomy was one of the black dots of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Samsung attacked this year by equipping the Z Flip 4 with a larger battery. Thus, the battery goes from 3300 to 3700 mAh. The versatile 01Lab’s versatile autonomy test is final, the Z Flip 4 wins four hours of autonomy, which is not negligible.

Same observation on video autonomy which goes from 8 hours and 29 minutes to 12 hours and 21 minutes. A real gain which allows the range of Z Flip to go from a “very bad” autonomy to “very correct”. Indeed, the Z Flip 4 is far from breaking records, but can now be used calmly for a day without fear of ending dry at the end of the afternoon.

Samsung also improves load speed that goes from 15W to 25W. Again, it’s much better, but we can’t really qualify this as “fast charge” in 2022. Count almost an hour and a half to completely recharge the phone. Only the Z Flip 3 and the iPhone 13 Pro are worse on this price range.
