If you’re in the market for an underwhelming phone, you’re in luck! The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 offers some interesting features, such as an octa-core processor, a 6 AMOLED screen, and your choice of 3GB or 4GB of RAM. However, these specifications are all quite run-of-the-mill, which makes the Z Flip 4 less competitive than its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
What is the phone all about?
A couple of weeks ago, Samsung announced the successor to the failed Galaxy Note 7 would be coming out in Korea this November. While there were some rumblings that it would still bear the Note branding, most speculated that Samsung was just going to bring back the standard Galaxy naming convention for the brand. After all, calling it something else would only call more attention to its connection with Note 7.
It turns out, we were right! Yesterday morning, when looking at flip-side renders of what is purportedly going to be called the Galaxy Z Flip 4 on a South Korean website, we get our first look at how Samsung plans on handling their branding issues as they release another high-profile phone designed and marketed as part of their flagship lineup… but with new stylings! We’ve seen these renders before, but I want to share them again here so you can see how the design has changed.
In addition to an expected fingerprint scanner, it looks like Samsung has also added some additional biometric security measures like iris scanning which should work really well considering the camera placement.
The home button has been removed entirely and replaced by a virtual one which also doubles as a navigation button while apps are open. With no headphone jack available in any Galaxy models released thus far, this one may actually have us breaking out into cold sweats at the thought of having yet another non-standard port that doesn’t support old accessories or even headphones without an adapter dongle (which will inevitably lose).
Why people are disappointed with this product
With the release of the Samsung Z3, it seemed that Samsung was back on track. The problem with the release of this phone is that it’s really nothing new. With less-than-stellar battery life and an awful camera quality, it’s not worth your time or money. If you’re looking for a premium phone with modern features, there are other options to choose from like Huawei and Sony. And if you want something cheaper, Apple is always a good option.

The author writes that people are disappointed with the product because With the release of the Samsung Z3, it seemed that Samsung was back on track.
However, when released, people were upset because It’s really nothing new. Other reasons why people were disappointed were: its terrible camera quality and its lack of endurance for heavy usage. If you are considering buying this phone, we recommend considering the Huawei Mate 20 Pro or Sony Xperia 1 instead.
Why should we expect more from Samsung?
While Samsung has never really been held to the same standards as Apple, it still sets very high expectations for its products. The reviews of their latest phone, the Galaxy S10 5G, were glowing and talked about how Samsung had redefined its lineup by building this device to fill needs that other phone manufacturers didn’t address. And when I saw the images of the flip camera for the first time, I got so excited about this device– because that feeling is what Samsung wants from us.
We want to feel like we’re experiencing something new and incredible every time we use one of their devices.
Of course there are some cool features on this phone: it’s compatible with both Verizon and AT&T’s 5G networks (but not with Sprint). It has three different cameras. It has a retina scanner. It also charges wirelessly through an external power adapter.
The thing is, these things aren’t enough anymore; they haven’t been enough for years now. The world has changed and technology progresses too quickly for any company to keep up with without innovating in new ways, whether that be through design or software updates or other ideas altogether. We want our phones to constantly show us something new and amazing and let us know that the developers are listening to what we have to say.
That’s why people love iPhones so much; even if you don’t use all of the features, it doesn’t matter because you know Apple cares about your experience just as much as you do.
So sure, maybe the Galaxy Z Flip 4 isn’t for me personally. But maybe it’ll be for someone else who thinks differently than me- which is exactly why Samsung needs more than just this phone.
Will I still buy it?
I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 last year and have been happy with it. I think it’s well designed, and while some things aren’t as good as my iPad Pro 10.5 (screen being a prime example), I’ve found this tablet to be more than good enough for my needs. Plus, the battery life is amazing! That said, these renders of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 don’t look all that impressive to me. If you need something basic then sure, but there are plenty of better tablets out there already (most notably Google’s Pixel C).
The Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 might be worth considering as well; if nothing else, both of these devices are excellent laptop replacements. The design on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion. First off, the back appears to have an awkward gap between the camera lens and flash which would make having one flush with it difficult if not impossible. Not only that but due to how thin it is and because it lacks any other design features aside from antenna lines on top and bottom, I feel like most people will simply forget they’re holding anything when they carry it around.
It looks too similar to so many other phones now-a-days that its distinctive design qualities just don’t make sense anymore. On top of all this, we know next-to-nothing about its specs which doesn’t do much for confidence in what’s coming up next from Samsung either.
