Top Foldable Phones To Buy This Year

We almost got bored with same kind of copy paste designs of smartphones but in the last couple of years, things have been changed dramatically – all thanks to the rise of folding phones.

Speaking of history of foldable phones, it was Royal Flex Pai, a Chinese electronics brand, which pioneered the market of foldable phones. After that Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei and Motorola presented their foldable concept device but only Samsung was the one which took a lead and made a foldable phone named as Galaxy Fold with price tag of $1980 for retail market but just before the launch, company addressed some serious screen and design issue. Due to that company delayed its launch but after five months, Samsung came with a new improved version named as Galaxy Z Fold 2 and swept the market.

We have compiled the list of best foldable phones to go for this year:

  1. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is not only the greatest folding phone yet, but it’s also the first that we can wholeheartedly recommend – assuming you can afford it.

While this phone is still costly, it is also slightly less expensive than its predecessor at launch, and it has all of the power you’d expect.

This is the first foldable phone with a sturdier build and water resistance, for its price segment, and owing to its S Pen stylus functionality, you can make the most of its large 7.6-inch display.
