I wouldn't normally write about some new Samsung Galaxy something, but dudes. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is some new Samsung Galaxy flip phone. A type of phone so close to my heart I only parted with mine and got a smartphone last year when T-Mobile took over Sprint and informed me my Sanyo Pro 700 would not be compatible with their towers. And now, in a world where I thought the beloved compact flipper was nearing extinction at the hands of phones the size of my entire crotchal region, here we have the Galaxy Z Flip3. Sigh. Thank you, Samsung.
Though I am removing 3 points for making it a touchscreen. I like buttons! And with the current popularity of fidget toys and weighted blankets and Pet This F*cking Puppy books, you'd think a cell phone designer would key in to the appeal of tactile stimulation. The feel of buttons depressing, their movement and click creating a response on your screen. But no. Flat, smooth, dull as dishwater touchscreens it is.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G folds into a 4.2" square that slips easily into pockets when you're not smartphoning, and opens into a full-sized mobile when you are. It comes in 7 snazzy colorways.
