For this Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 review, it’s first worth pointing out that until now foldable phones have been more of a gimmick than anything really worth considering, the second iteration of Samsung’s Z Fold without a doubt changes that. Is this handset the game-changing phone we’ve been waiting for?

While other smartphone manufacturers are yet to launch their own foldable phones, Samsung is ahead of the game with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 being their second attempt at a phone that transforms itself into a tablet. So what does the competition look like? So far, there aren’t many other options out there, the Huawei Mate Xs or the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold are two rivals that feature in T3’s guide to the best folding phones, alongside other clamshell-style handsets that fold out into regular-sized smartphones.
