Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 has always been the go-to choice for those who want a clamshell foldable smartphone since its release in late 2022. While the hardware is dated by now, it is still a capable performer, with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, 8GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage.

Battery life however, is not the best as it house only a 3,700mAh battery. With conservative use, you can squeeze out more than a day’s worth of battery life.

Oppo Find N2 Flip

Best Foldable Smartphones You Can Buy In 2023 10

The Oppo Find N2 Flip was launched recently, and trumps the Galaxy Z Flip4 in terms of hardware. It features Mediatek Dimensity 9000 chipset, a 6.8-inch inner screen, a 3.26-inch outer screen, and a comparatively large 4,300mAh battery.

One key feature of the Oppo Find N2 Flip is the “gapless” hinge, ensuring the phone lies flat when folded. Camera performance is excellent as well, as the 50MP camera can be used for selfies via the outer screen.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4

Best Foldable Smartphones You Can Buy In 2023 12

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 impressed us with its large 7.6-inch main screen, offering a tablet-like user experience. One UI is also well-polished, providing an excellent UI that maximises utility on the larger screen real estate. The outer screen is decent as well, offering a traditional smartphone user experience for when you need to answer a call or reply a message.

If you want a tablet-like experience out of your foldable smartphone without forking out for multiple devices, you can’t go wrong with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4.

Honor Magic Vs

Best Foldable Smartphones You Can Buy In 2023 13

The Honor Magic Vs offers a lot on the table at an attractive price point of only RM5,999 (RRP). You get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, 12GB of RAM, 512GB of storage and a large 5,000mAh battery. Moreover, both the inner and outer screens are large, at 7.9-inches and 6.45 inches respectively.

However, MagicOS is not as well-optimised for foldable smartphone screens as One UI, with some minor quirks. If value for money is your main concern, then the Honor Magic Vs is our value pick of 2023.
