Two new Samsung foldable phones are roaming the market today. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 refines its predecessor’s strengths and brings even more features to the party. The Galaxy Z Flip 3, meanwhile, condenses the flip-foldable formula into a more accessible package. Both phones are pretty appealing on paper, but if you had to purchase one, which would you choose?

Which new Samsung foldable would you get?

There are several reasons to go with the Galaxy Z Fold 3. It packs nifty S Pen support for the first time on a Samsung foldable. A new under-display camera and a more durable shell with water resistance also feature. If you’re looking for a device with a large screen, this is the phone to buy. That said, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 may still be too large for some. And at $1,799, it remains a massive investment for a smartphone.

The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the far more appealing of the two for those on a slimmer budget. It starts at $999 and fixes many of its predecessor’s issues. It includes a hardier shell, a more durable internal display, and a more useful external display. The Z Flip 3 also folds into a smaller package. But, again, is this design the best use of foldable technology? And is the Galaxy Z Flip 3 really worth the $999 spend over a traditional, rigid flagship?
