The smartphone has got a huge external screen Flex Window, which turned out to be 3.78 times larger than the Flip4 and allows you to implement a number of new features. Such a screen offers more customization options, including an informative clock that can match the watch face design of a Galaxy Watch6 series user. Flex Window allows you to quickly and easily access useful information, interact with applications and widgets without opening your phone.

Many experts and consumers have complained that the Z Flip 4 hinge leaves a gap between the two screens when the phone is closed. According to Samsung, this issue has been resolved and the Z Flip 5 closes completely without a gap.
