The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the third iteration of the Korean brand’s folding smartphone. Before the arrival of the fourth version, and on the occasion of the sales, this still original model sees its price drop from 1,799 euros to 1,299 euros on Cdiscount.
As the launch date of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, as well as that of its marketing, becomes clearer, the third iteration of this folding smartphone is still recommendable today. While it may not be suitable for many people due to its imposing size, it can still boast of being a powerhouse of technology. Its main drawback is still its very high price. So the sales are the best time to acquire this flexible smartphone without paying the high price. At this time, it is even possible to save 500 euros.

A very imposing smartphone with two AMOLED screens
Who says folding smartphone, necessarily says massive model. If the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 remains faithful to this identity, its weight has fortunately been lightened a little compared to the previous generation, which makes it easier to handle. Be careful, this smartphone will not be a featherweight, with 271 grams on the scale. Otherwise, the finish has also been improved, with a resistant aluminum frame and Gorilla Glass Victus glass that protects the front and back sides on the outside. But one of the main novelties of this smartphone is indeed its IPX8 certification, which makes it completely waterproof, and therefore more durable.
In addition, this folding smartphone obviously stands out for its transformation into a mini tablet once unfolded. Open, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 reveals two screens: the one located inside is 7.6 inches, against 6.2 inches for the outer panel. If the two screens differ in size, they still share a common point, and not the least: they both integrate AMOLED technology and its well-defined contrasts, as well as the adaptive 120 Hz mode, i.e. the assurance of great fluidity in navigation. Comfort will therefore be largely required when you unfold the smartphone to exploit all its capabilities. Under the interior screen, we can also find a very discreet photo sensor, unlike the clearly visible punches on most smartphones. Also note that this Fold 3 is compatible with the S Pen, but Samsung has not seen fit to reserve specific storage for it on this phone.
A beautiful power in its entrails
Such an imposing smartphone had to offer very good performance to keep up. This is indeed the case here. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 thus embeds a powerful Snapdragon 888 chip, coupled with 12 GB of RAM. With such a configuration, you will have no problem running the most demanding video games.
On the photo side, the Fold 3 has three sensors on the back, all 12 megapixels: a wide-angle lens, an ultra-wide-angle lens and a x2 telephoto lens. If the quality of the shots will be a bit lower than that which can be found on other premium smartphones, the result will still be largely satisfactory. The main sensor will be very good, for example, since it allows you to capture very sharp shots with very bright colors. As we noted in our test, it is still a bit complicated to bet on a more sophisticated module without cluttering up the whole thing, which is already very thick. On the video side, the Fold 3 will be very efficient: it can shoot up to 4K at 60 fps with careful stabilization.
Finally, with regard to autonomy, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 has a 4400 mAh battery, which should last you a day, but no more. Everything will of course depend on your use, but keep in mind that the interior screen will, unsurprisingly, be power hungry. For charging, wireless charging will be available, and to refuel, it will take about 1h15 with fast charging.
