The best foldable phones have undergone a shake-up. Now that LG has exited the phone business, taking its dual-screen devices with it, Samsung dominates the foldable phone category. But the latest foldables from Samsung prove that it would be the phone maker turn to even if there was more competition to be found.
The latest models from Samsung — the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 — deliver big improvements over their predecessors. We’ve now reviewed both phones, and feel comfortable recommending them as the best foldable phones you can buy right now.
Samsung and other phone makers ultimately dream of taking the best foldable phones beyond niche devices and turning them into handsets with mainstream appeal. The lower price of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 could make that happen, as it’s the first foldable phone to cost less than $1,000. The addition of S Pen support to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 might make that phone more appealing, too, particularly for fans of the Galaxy Note phablets.
