design and dimensions
The two foldable smartphones share the same clamshell design, making them very visible as rivals.
As for the dimensions, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 measures 165.2 x 71.9 x 6.9 mm when opened and weighs 187 grams. The Motorola, on the other hand, is 200 grams and measures 167 x 79.8 x 7.6 mm.
All things considered, the Galaxy is lighter and smaller than its competitor Motorola, which is not only an advantage when held in one hand, but a key feature for this type of shell device. to win.
A foldable smartphone screen is one of the most relevant specifications for this type of terminal. Motorola has made a clear bet on his 6.7-inch P-OLED main screen with Full HD+ resolution and a high 144 Hz refresh rate. As if that wasn’t enough, it also added HDR10+ certification and DC dimming. The external G-OLED screen is 2.7 inches with a resolution of 800×573 pixels.
Similarly, the Flip 4 also features a 6.7-inch AMOLED main screen, Full HD+ resolution, and HDR10+ support. But the refresh rate is 120Hz. The outer screen is 1.9 inches with a resolution of 512×260 pixels. Motorola wins the second round. Motorola offers a much higher refresh rate on the main screen, along with a larger, higher resolution external screen.
Processor, RAM, Storage
In terms of processors, both new model controls are equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processors with UFS 3.1 storage in capacities of 128, 256 and 512 GB.
The difference is in the integrated LPDDR5 RAM memory. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is capped at 8GB, while the Razr 2022 can offer up to 12GB of RAM in its most advanced variant.
Round 3 was won by Motorola for offering the option to increase RAM. Either way, both models promise to be faster and more efficient in energy consumption.
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 comes with a dual rear camera setup with a 12-megapixel primary sensor and optical image stabilization, and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor.A 10-megapixel front that records 4K video. Along with the camera, it can record 4K video at 60 frames per second.
Similarly, the Razr 2022 also has a dual rear camera setup, but it integrates a 50-megapixel primary sensor with optical image stabilization and a 13-megapixel ultrawide. can record 4K videos. Up front, we have a 32-megapixel camera that can only record 1080p video.
Motorola has clearly won the megapixel war, but the victory is marred by the lack of the ability to record 4K video with the front-facing camera offered by Samsung.
The Razr 2022 has a 3,500mAh battery that supports 33 watts of fast charging. Similarly, Samsung’s Flip 4 packs his big 3,700 mAh battery, but has a low fast charge of 25 watts.
