Editor Laura: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3
“From Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 It is definitely not the smartphone I would buy right now because of its price, but I love it when something is different from the rest. We have said for years that we will soon see more and more foldable smartphones and that the most advanced company in this regard is Samsung. The Korean brand dares to take a risk and I can appreciate that in a world that has otherwise become somewhat homogeneous. In addition, I myself have always been very fascinated by the observation and this is definitely the ultimate alternative. Did you see those photos in a review Claudia? Not bad at all.”
