Foldable phone screens are a fairly recent innovation, but it seems that 2020 is the year that they will finally become popular. Despite many smartphone manufacturers deciding to go foldable, there are still a few problems that need to be addressed.
Scratch-resistant screens and general protection from dust are still a problem, but it seems that new phones addressed this issue fairly successfully. With this in mind and the innovations that foldable phone technology brings, let’s look at some of the best foldable phones in 2020.
Samsung Galaxy Fold
After the company released a few review samples last year, there were some problems with the screen, and it got bad reviews. The company learned from its mistakes and fixed the issues.
Galaxy fold features a 7.3-inch foldable screen, on the inside, and a 4.5-inch front screen. The price is a bit steep, but you actually get what you paid for, as it comes equipped with a high-end processor, 512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM.
To help you take amazing pictures, the phone features 6 cameras that cover every angle. When using a larger display, you can utilize its full potential, with a feature that allows you to open three apps at the same time.
Motorola always made good folding phones in the past, and now they decided to turn their iconic folding Razr into a foldable one. This phone comes with a 6.2-inch vertical display that uses the 21:9 display ratio.
On the back, you will find a 16MPX camera for taking stunning photos, and at the front, you have a 5MPX camera that takes care of the selfies. When closed, the phone features a quick view display so you won’t have to open it all the time.
It also comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Huawei Mate X
Huawei decided to take a different approach than the other manufacturers. Their phone’s screen wraps around on the outside, rather than sitting on the inside of the phone. The phone features a 6.6-inch and 6.38-inch screens that come together to form an 8-inch tablet.
Once the screens come together, the joints are seamless, which looks even better than what other contenders have to offer. The phone does have some slight issues with scratches though.
Unfortunately due to the US ban on Huawei, it is a bit hard to come by this phone, and we will have to see if it will become available in the US in the future.
Microsoft Surface Duo
Microsoft also decided to get into the foldable phone market. This phone features two 9-inch screens and a 360-degree hinge. When the screens are side by side, the display extends so you can use the phone as a tablet.
For some reason, the company decided that Surface Duo will run Android instead of a windows OS. We will have to wait until the 2020 holiday season to see how good it is though.
