    It is a flip phone

    Flip phones were cool in the early 2000's and with the folding displays, they are still cool to rock. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 has a robust hinge that lets it stay folded at the desired angle you choose. It is so satisfying to cut a call by folding the phone shut! Despite the hinge, the phone has IPX8 rating for water resistance, which means it should survive light showers with ease. And when done, you can fold it shut to easily shove it in your trouser pockets.

    Cool and fast processor

    The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip is not only the fastest chip on an Android phone but it is also power efficient and runs cool. Hence, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 can run almost any app and game with ease.

    Reliable battery life

Hence, you can have your phone charged in the morning to 100% and end the day with almost 20-30% charge left. If you need to fill up the battery, the 25W charging fills up the battery fairly quickly.

    Cool camera tricks

    The Galaxy Z Flip 4 has its own Flex mode features for the cameras. You can fold it in half and leave it on the surface for a tripod-like functionality. When clicking someone's portrait, you can use the Cover Display to show them a tiny preview of the photo.
