The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is the best mobile for anyone looking for a phone and tablet combo. In our Galaxy Z Fold 5 review, we welcomed the phone's thinner/lighter design and multitasking capabilities, but find it's a good phone only if it's your first foldable or if you're upgrading from a much older foldable. It features a 7.6-inch QXGA+ (2176 x 1812) Dynamic AMOLED inner display w/ 120Hz refresh, 6.2-inch HD+ (2316 x 904) Dynamic AMOLED 2X outer display w/ 60Hz refresh, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.

Need help deciding which phone to get? In our Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 review, we loved this phone's thinner and lighter design and powerful multitasking. It's also an incredible gaming phone — the large inner display gets you a better view of the action, and games will look slick thanks to the Z Fold 5's 120Hz refresh rate.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5's triple rear camera system includes a 50MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide and a 10MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom. You also get a 10MP selfie camera up front and a low-res under-display camera on the inner display. Portraits, wide shots and low light shots all looked sharp.
Meanwhile, in our Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 review we praised this phone's larger outer display, excellent camera performance and sleek design. This is the phone to get if you prioritize portability, since the Z Flip 5 slips easily into a pockets when folded.
Whichever you choose, you'll have your hands on one of the best foldable phones on the market, so don't sleep on these Labor Day sales.
