When we say Samsung, high quality with great technology immediately comes to mind. The Galaxy Flip 3 and Flip 4 have the unique build and construction of a smartphone that has been talked about for a long time, but which one is really worth buying? Which of them has better performance? And which one will people enjoy more? The Successor or the Predecessor?

The new Galaxy Z Flip 3 shares many genes with its successor, but makes many changes on its specs to make the most of the current design. As a result, it’s hard to find what’s key feature to entice a user of its Predecessor to upgrade, or someone who’s impatiently save money to get a new model instead of an older but cheaper one. If you are at the point of choosing between the two, we can help you as long as you keep on reading this article.

The design of the Samsung Galaxy Flip series has remained largely the same since it was first launched, with a few minor changes. The Z Flip 3 features a larger cover panel on the foldable device, which the Galaxy Z Flip 4 still has.

But the minor differences that I saw between this two is the display, the display panel is also now tougher on the Z Flip 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s bezels are thinner compared to its predecessor, making it look more modern than the Z Flip 3 which is a good thing as an upgrade. With its back, the Z Flip 4 adds several functions that you can use without opening the phone, such as messaging or touching smart home devices. You can also customize its background. It still serves the primary purpose of showing alerts and notifications that the Z Flip 3 has.

The two are also not far apart when it comes to the operating system as the Flip 3 will also be upgraded to Android 12 with the same One UI 4.1 OS as its Successor.

Both Flip 3 and Flip 4 have the same dual main camera, 12MP wide and 12MP ultra-wide. The upgrade provided by the Flip 4 has a larger sensor that helps in dim-light moments, allowing more light to enter the sensor for a cleaner signal to feed its processor. This can now provide better outputs for Night Photography. While on their front facing cameras, there is no changes between the two.
