Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 are currently available for pre-order. These phones were officially unveiled 10 days ago at Samsung's Unpacked event on August 10, and they were improved in a number of ways compared to their previous generation, Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. Among these things, we can mention the faster charging speed.
Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4 are charged side by side in the video that you can see in this article to determine which one's performance is better. This is faster. In a way, it can be said that the purpose is to compare Samsung's new foldable phones in terms of charging, which finally resulted in a strange result. But before you watch the video, we will first have a quick look at the technical specifications of both products in terms of battery and charger to see what we should expect from them.
Galaxy Z Fold 4 has a 4400 mAh battery. while the battery capacity of Galaxy Z Flip 4 reaches 3,700 mAh. Both phones finally support a charger with a capacity of 25 watts, which is currently the fastest charger of the Korean company in the market after Samsung's 45-watt charger, which, of course, is not significantly different from this model. Of course, in the test that you are going to see, both phones are charged with a 45-watt Samsung charger, while in the end both phones are still charged at the same speed of 25 watts, because the same amount is set for their batteries and not more.
Galaxy Z Fold 4 charging speed compared to Z Flip 4
Given the specifications of these two phones, we expected Galaxy Z Flip 4 to reach 100% charge much faster. Because it is charged with the same charger, but its battery capacity is less. But as a result of this review, an interesting thing happened because we realized that such a thing is not true at all and our prediction turned out to be wrong.
In this test, we saw that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 with its relatively high-capacity battery, after passing It was fully charged in 1 hour and 23 minutes. But this amount lasted 5 minutes longer for the Galaxy Z Flip 4, which has a much smaller battery. It means 1 hour and 28 minutes. It would have been surprising if these two phones were charged in the same amount of time, but now we see that the Z Flip reached 100% even 5 minutes later.
It is interesting that in the first hour, the Galaxy Z The Flip 4 was able to charge up to 77% while the Z Fold 4 charged up to 75% during this time. But after that, Z Fold 4 was able to be 5 minutes ahead and finally finished the test earlier. It's hard to believe how this could happen, but it seems that Samsung itself has taken steps here to make the Z Fold 4 perform better. It is not clear why this company has made such a decision.
It should be noted that in the recent battery test, we saw that these phones have a better performance in keeping the charge even compared to the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is very strange in its own way. And it is unbelievable. If this test is true, it should be praised for Samsung's performance in optimizing the software of its phones and creating harmony between hardware and software, because the fact that a phone with a screen larger than 7 inches with a battery of 4400 mAh and a phone with a screen of 6.7 inch with a 3700 mAh battery to last longer than a phone with a 5000 mAh battery is really not something that can be ignored.
