The foldable design also helps with multitasking because it gives you the option to use the top and bottom half of the phone as two separate screens. I found this feature to be especially handy when I want to say, read the news (or a story about the best gel nail polishes) on the top screen, while doing a quick scroll of Twitter on the bottom. Or watch a YouTube video, while texting a friend back without having to toggle between apps.
Foldable phones are a blast from the past, but I dare say they’re the way of the future. You still get the larger display screen that, let’s face it, our eyes have adapted to, but you can easily snap it shut to save valuable pocket space whenever it’s not in use. And it makes multitasking and taking photos on your own so much easier (though this may put a few Instagram husbands out of business).
Jokes aside, if you’re looking to upgrade your phone, now is a good time to consider making the switch to a foldable. Samsung just released a newer version of the Z Flip at a slightly more palatable cost than its predecessor—just under a grand (which, to be clear, is still a small fortune), but on par with the starting cost of a new iPhone 12 Pro.
