We have already talked about both phones at the time, both the Oppo Find N2 Flip, and Samsung’s latest foldable, the Galaxy Z Flip4. Although both share a last name (Flip), the similarities do not stop there. In processor, memory and other specifications, they are also aligned. But there are also differences. And that is what makes one better than another. It all depends on the user in this comparison of the two most interesting foldables on the market.
We start with one of the most important characteristics of folding. The internal screen (the main one) of the Samsung is 6.7 with a slightly higher resolution than the Oppo (6.8 inches): 2640 x 1080 from the Korean against 2540 x 1080. In a nutshell: Samsung has a somewhat better screen than Oppo, even if it is imperceptibly smaller.
The tables are turned when it comes to external displays. here Oppo almost double the size Galaxy Z Flip4: 3.26 inches vs. 1.9. Of course, one is Amoled and the other is Super Amoled. And here again the upper echelon is from Samsung. The difference between the two is that the “superlative” consumes 20% less battery life, better represents colors and reflects up to 80% less brightness.
Verdict: Oppo has gone for size and Samsung for quality. The differences between the two are very subtle and depends on the importance we give to the external screen.
Another important factor. Here the parameters are much more direct. The Oppo Flip has 4300 mAh and 44W fast charge, while Samsung’s Flip bets on 3,700 mAh and 25 W fast charge. As much as the processor can compensate a little for the expense, the reality is that Oppo takes this category. Even more so when it includes the charger and Samsung does not.
Samsung has opted for the Snapdragon 8+ Gen while Oppo leans towards a Dimensity 9000+. The former has better heat dissipation (the power plus we mentioned earlier), it can sustain higher peak power than its competitor, and the graphics card is better. The Dimensity 9000+, for its part, works better with memory and maintains its power for longer. It is a very complex decision because we are talking about two of the best processors of the moment. We could lean towards Samsung’s Snapdragon if we like video games and take advantage of the GPU… but the relationship with Oppo’s Dimensity processing memory is better, so… The decision is very complex.
Another section that seems easy to define at first glance. If the Oppo Flip (for short) has up to 16 GB of RAM, the Samsung Flip reaches up to 8 GB. But in storage they are the same since both reach up to 512 GB. If it were a difference of 8 GB to 12 GB, perhaps the more efficient processing power of the Snapdragon could be used, but with 100% more RAM, the difference is clear.
Samsung has always been characterized by careful respect in photography. Your Flip includes a 10 MP front camera and two 12 MP main cameras. For its part, Oppo puts on the table a front of 32 MP and two in the main of 50 MP and 8 MP. All with a Sony sensor and Hasselblad software treatment, which has put its signature on the device. By resolution, variety and quality, Oppo is a little above Samsung in this section.
Here the difference is very subtle and the Oppo is about 50 euros cheaper: €1049 against €1099. For this reason, there are mobile phones that, in terms of features (battery, photography, memory or processing), are better… but none of them is foldable.
