Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5: This Amazon spring deal is a rare treat, says our smartphone specialist

Among the foldable phones we’ve tested, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is our top choice – especially at this discounted price for Amazon’s spring sale

Should you be pining for a folding smartphone, this Amazon Spring Deals Day discount on the truly excellent Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is great news.

What’s so good about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5?

  • The Galaxy Z Flip 5 has improved performance on the previous-generation Z Flip 4, achieving 18% faster speeds in our single-core test and a 21% improvement in multicore processing.
  • Battery life is also improved via a more efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, extending its per-charge lifespan to an impressive 22hrs 17mins in our video-playback test.
  • All this is packed into a thinner, lighter display, incorporating a new gapless fold featuring a massive 3.4in exterior display: that’s a 278% increase in screen real estate compared to the Z Flip 4.

Are there any disadvantages to this Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 deal?

  • The camera set is the same as the Z Flip 4: a 12-megapixel (f/1.8) main camera 12-megapixel (f/2.2) 123-degree ultrawide unit and a 10-megapixel (f/2.2) selfie camera. Quality is still decent, capturing lots of detail and bold colours, but not the best around.
  • While we love the foldable design, the crease in the display is still quite prominent in certain lighting. Foldable phones like the Razr 40 Ultra, for instance, have a barely visible crease.
