Samsung Galaxy Flip sells out, other smartphones get thumbs up


    SAMSUNG Galaxy Z Flip phone sold out all available stocks of its newest form factor, the Galaxy Z Flip, during its 3-day pre-order period. The device promises a whole new mobile experience by allowing users to find elegant ways to capture, share, and view content.

    “All the excitement surrounding the Galaxy Z Flip proved that there is a strong desire for a new mobile experience that offers both style and function,” Jerry Mañus, Business Unit Head of IT and Mobile, Samsung Philippines shares.

    The Galaxy Z Flip is a statement-making foldable device. Designed for those who see cutting-edge technology as a way to express themselves, it folds into a stylish and compact form factor that can fit in the pocket.

    Its unique folding form highlights seamless continuity with the Cover Screen, giving users an immersive experience with no interruptions. Moreover, it is equipped with a New Hideaway Hinge that ensures every flip and fold is smooth and stable. When unfolded, the ultra-thin glass technology shows the 6.7” Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex-O Display.

    Pre-ordered units will be released starting February 21, 2020 and is priced at P79,990 and comes in Mirror Black and Mirror Purple variants.

    In a round-up of 2019, the Samsung Galaxy S10 was awarded by industry standard benchmark DisplayMate’s highest ever A+ grade, with 100 percent “Very Good to Excellent” ratings across all categories. The Galaxy S10+ also received high praise for its 6.4” Quad HD+ AMOLED Infinity-O Display, which contributed to its inclusion in the top “Best Of” lists reviewing the best smartphones of 2019.

    2019 was also a great year for the Samsung Galaxy Note10+. After winning recognition from DisplayMate with the ‘Best Smartphone Display Award’, the phone received consistently positive feedback across reviews. It was counted among the best that 2019 had to offer, praising not only its screen but the usefulness and versatility of the signature S Pen.

    The Galaxy Note10+ also received the highest score of the year in a test by independent benchmark setters DxOMark. The test, comparing the low light camera performance of four leading smartphones, ranked the Galaxy Note10+ 5G first in the ultra-wide category for Best Smartphone Cameras of 2019.

    In tests by independent Consumer Association publication Which?, the Galaxy S10 5G took the top spot, followed by the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G and the Galaxy S10+ which stand alone as the only smartphones to achieve a score of 90 percent or higher. Both phones and their variants, were given the “Best Buy” badge of approval.

    In the Philippines, several top tech media also recognized Galaxy Note10+ as the best smartphone for Filipino consumers.

    Samsung has always been a pioneer in category-defining new form factors and design for their mobile devices, and 2019 saw this leadership truly recognized. As the first manufacturer to bring an in-foldable screen smartphone to the market, Samsung broke new ground for displays in more ways than one—continuing to make the brand the best choice for users who are looking for the highest quality devices.
