Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 review: Is it time to label foldables as dull already? When I first opened the Galaxy Z Fold 5’s package, that was the notion that was constantly circling through my head.

When the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s predecessor became available a year ago, I was beyond eager to get my hands on it. However,

in light of the Pixel Fold’s dismal performance and the lack of any noticeable modifications, upgrades, or enhancements,

it was difficult to feel a little bit apprehensive about this assessment. With a product that is so similar to its predecessor, what would I even say?

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5

Rating: 8 / 10 The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is a minor step forward for Samsung’s most expensive smartphone. It keeps most of what worked on last year’s model, while closing the gap between its two halves for a lighter, thinner chassis. Newcomers will love Samsung’s most refined foldable yet,

but with more competition than ever, it’s hard not to wish for more out of the Z Fold 5.BrandSamsungSoCSnapdragon 8 Gen 2Display7.6″ 2176 x 1812 120Hz OLED primary, 6.2″ 2316 x 904 120Hz OLED cover displayRAM12GBStorage256GB, 512GB,

Pros

  • What worked last year still works pretty well here
  • Good – if unpredictable – battery life
  • Slimmed down chassis finally feels pocket-friendly
  • One UI’s foldable enhancements remain excellent

Cons

  • Gap or no, this design is starting to feel a little old
  • No tangible camera improvements this generation
  • 25W charging for $1,800 in 2023 is unacceptable
  • Plenty of potential improvements from the Z Fold 4 left ignored
