The history of mobile phones is marked by several milestones. Some of them refer to the moment in which they happened to replace another deeply rooted device among us. For example, as the camera system was improved, both in hardware and software, practically everyone stopped taking an independent camera on their trips, achieving a very similar result with their smartphone.
Another important moment was when the mobile phone began to become a real working tool. On trips or trips outside the office, carrying the laptop was the only way to continue to work. For all those people, the arrival of Samsung’s Note range solved all the limitations they faced, due to their need to always be connected.
It is paradoxical that with the launch of the first Samsung Galaxy Note in 2011, many people were surprised by the “huge” size of its screen. And I say “huge” because they were 5.3 inches, something that today seems the normal size to everyone. Its launch captured all eyes, in addition to its format, due to the incorporation of an S Pen that allowed to further expand the possibilities of a smartphone. We are in 2011, and the history of mobile telephony was going to change forever.
Ten years later, phones have become more powerful and, above all, more productive. We can do practically anything with them: from making an important call with another country with a high quality and without noticing lag to answering emails, working on documents and thanks to the use of accessories such as the pencil, doing it in a simpler and more precise way. .
When the phone becomes the best work tool
During the current pandemic, but especially after lockdown, the way people work changed. A survey conducted by Samsung collected data such as that 74% of users turn to smartphones as their main equipment to perform certain activities related to their work. For all these people, the choice in the purchase of a smartphone requires a prior reflection exercise, so that the chosen phone is the ideal one, both for their free time and for their work time.
Samsung’s answer to these folks is the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, the third device in an innovative range of folding phones, a category that has gone from being seen as an unattainable object of desire to being seen as a real alternative.
An incredible display and design to work with or whatever it takes
Thanks to its design, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 helps daily tasks to be carried out in a more comfortable way, for example leaving the phone resting on a table while making a video call.
We can choose the type of format in which to make them: either with the device closed, enjoying a 6.2-inch SuperAMOLED screen, or opening it and displaying its incredible 7.6-inch Infinity Flex screen
The manufacture of the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 could take an entire article. In addition to the achievement of making a waterproof folding screen, the way Samsung has managed to make applications conform to the new format is simply incredible.
Its reduced edges, its integrated camera under the screen, capable of disappearing if for example we are watching a video (eliminating any point of distraction) or the absence of notch, make the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 one of the best phones of the moment, both to work as to enjoy multimedia content.
Working with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3
In a phone designed to improve productivity, the use has to be perfect. Fluid and uncomplicated so that the time to become familiar is minimal. In the case of the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, a lot of work has been done in that regard. Drag and drop between two applications was designed to be as simple as possible. For example, imagine that we want to attach an image to an email, it is as simple as opening the two applications, placing them next to each other and dragging and dropping the image into the email message.
As a work tool, it is perfect. The possibility of executing multitasking, hand in hand with OneUI, dividing the screen into up to three, four or five applications at the same time is really useful if, for example, we are making a video call and at the same time we need to consult a document and take notes on a program of text. We went from having the productivity of a PC directly in the palm of our hand.
In addition, another advantage of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is that it is compatible with the Microsoft Office suite of applications, the most used in the world. So opening a Word document, a Power Point presentation or an Excel sheet is easier than ever.
S Pen, even more agile and precise
Everyone coming from the Note range will hold the Samsung S Pen in high regard. Although it is compatible with other models of the brand, such as the Samsung S21 Ultra, in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 it takes on even more prominence thanks to the S Pen Fold Edition.
Designing a folding screen compatible with the S Pen should not have been easy, but the user experience is perfect. You hardly notice the difference between writing on the side of the screen or in the center, where the crease is.
By pressing the physical button on the side and on the lower half of the screen, the menu of applications compatible with the S Pen appears. As a curiosity, when it comes to writing characters that are difficult to interpret, such as Chinese and Japanese, when you press the text conversion button before starting to type, they will automatically be converted into typewritten text.
With all this, it is easy for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 to become the ideal choice for all those who are looking for a phone that combines innovation and productivity in equal measure. In addition, now on the Samsung website they have a promotion for which you can get a cover and the S Pen Fold Edition for free when you buy it.
