How does it all work? Unlike other Samsung flagships, Galaxy Z Fold2 works based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor, which will surely please the Exynos anti-fans. The processor works with 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 flash memory. And how is this supposed to work, if not perfect?!
You can rest assured that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 will cope with any task that you put before it, and the high power will last it for the next 2-3 years. The smartphone works without cuts and short of breath, although sometimes it gets a bit warm. However, it does not seem to have any negative impact on performance. The only thing that irritates and worries me is the lack of a memory card slot. 230 GB that we have for a start, in such a gadget phone is definitely not enough, 512 GB would seem to be ok...
Sound and communication
Galaxy Z Fold2 has all of the important communication interfaces, there are even stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos technology and the AKG logo - but a minijack is missing. The smartphone can support physical (Dual SIM) and virtual SIM cards and of course it works on 5G.
The sound quality during calls is perfect, although a discreet conversation (due to the design) is possible only after closing the housing. On the open phone we can talk in the hands-free mode, but it is even better for remote work. I like long chats by Fold, because due to its thickness, it is more comfortable to hold it with the shoulder. I did not notice any problems with the range (yes! I finally caught 5G in the bedroom!), Or with the work of other communication modules. Everything works as it should.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is perfect as a multimedia consumption device, because it has not only a large and good screen, but also excellent stereo speakers. They are placed in such a way that we are unlikely to cover them with our hands, and they sound just perfect. Loud, clean, even, you can clearly hear the depth of the sound, and sometimes we even hear a little bass. In the menu we have an extensive equalizer and the Adapt Sound function typical of Samsung, which allows us to adjust the equalization to our needs.
Text communication is a separate issue. Thanks to the large display and various split screen options, typing on Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a fairy tale. Believe me, there is no smartphone where the comfort of writing would be better. Forget the old models with micro mechanical keyboards - Fold is better for those who type a lot. You can set the phone in the "laptop" position, but you can also enlarge the keyboard, divide it and write vertically, in both cases with both hands.
It is a pity that we are currently working rather in our homes - Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 would be the perfect phone for work in the field. You can easily develop even quite a long test on it, take decent photos with it, make a good movie, edit it and send it out into the world. I promise myself that for this reason I will probably start to postpone for the next generation, maybe until the end of the pandemic or the launch of Fold 4 somehow I will succeed...
