Samsung’s second-generation foldable phone has been available to buy for a while now and as we said in our Galaxy Z Fold 2 review, it’s probably our phone of the year! The Galaxy Z Fold 2 brings several improvements including a new hinge that can be stopped at any angle, a wider front screen, a pinhole camera instead of that awful notch, and far more. There are also optimizations thanks to close partnerships with Google, where Duo and YouTube display controls on half the screen and video on the other half, and Microsoft, where you can work on a Powerpoint and Excel sheet side-by-side from within the Office app.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is $1,999 in the US. Although fairly expensive, it’s only priced at $20 more than the price of the original Galaxy Fold, despite the vast range of improvements it brings. For one of XDA’s favorite phones of the year, the Fold 2 is worth the price of admission. We have collected all relevant information on the best Galaxy Z Fold 2 deals below!
