Samsung Galaxy Fold: Design

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is the next definition for smartphones, as it is the first smartphone available in India with a foldable display. The device has a foldable OLED display inside and there is a standard display on the outside. The phone uses a hinge mechanism to fold and unfold the phone. When it is opened, the device literally turns into a tablet that offers more screen real-estate, enabling better gaming and multimedia consumption.

Samsung Galaxy Fold: Hardware Performance

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is the only Samsung smartphone available with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC in India. The phone offers 12GB RAM and 512GB UFS 3.0 based storage, which is a gold standard in the smartphone territory. The device offers better gaming performance, thanks to the large surface area, it also better thermal performance as well. Apps that are optimized for the foldable display should work seamlessly.

Samsung Galaxy Fold: Camera Performance

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has a total of six cameras. The main camera unit consists of a 12MP primary sensor, 12MP telephoto lens, and a 16MP ultra-wide angle lens. There is a dual-camera setup on the inside part of the phone with an 8MP and a 10MP camera setup. Besides, there is a single 10MP camera on the front with an f/2.2 aperture. The camera performance of the Samsung Galaxy Fold should be similar to the Galaxy Note 10 Plus if not identical. With a large viewfinder (foldable display) users can look at the images in high-resolution without a computer or a tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Fold: Price To Specs Ratio

With a retail price of Rs. 1,64,999, the Galaxy Fold is one of the most expensive smartphones from the company. However, considering the features that it packs, the phone does not feel that expensive as the iPhone 11 Pro Max with 512GB internal storage costs Rs. 1,31,900. This is the price that one has to pay to own a first-generation product with features that no other smartphones offer. This is not a typical flagship smartphone, instead, it is a smartphone that starts a new trend.

Samsung Galaxy Fold: Unique Features

The Samsung Galaxy Fold's foldable display is definitely the highlight of the device. It opens up a new world of possibilities and sits right between smartphones and tablets. This phone also packs in flagship specifications like Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC, 12GB RAM, and 512GB internal storage. Besides, this is also one of the first foldable smartphones that someone can buy.

Samsung Galaxy Fold: Verdict

If you are a super tech geek and want to own something that is so unique and make you feel special, then the Galaxy Fold is the device to get to. Yes, there are more than a dozen smartphones with better specifications, but nothing comes close with respect to the innovation. However, as we have seen earlier, the Galaxy Fold is a bit fragile (especially the inside screen) and should be handled with at most care. Though it might not be a daily-driver type device it is definitely something that everyone will notice.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
