Unboxing Samsung's $1,380 Galaxy Z Flip

Foldable Phones
The Motorola Razor has some competition that nearly $1400 Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. We have them right here. Let's open up the box and see what's inside. So as you can see here it's got the little Z on top, on the side, and a couple little stickers. We have one up here. Use our X-Acto knife. [MUSIC] There we go. A little strong, that one. [MUSIC] There we go. Slide that off, okay. So put that over here. Gallaxy Z Flip, very clever Samsung. All right tapers off let's open up the box. The future changes shape meet your Galaxy z flip. Samsung lets you know you just dropped 1400 dollars on a fancy phone. There you go. Nice little piece of paper here. We'll put that to the side care instructions in the phone itself. Samsung obviously had a lot of problems with the Galaxy Fold and people removing the screen protector that was integral to the phone. What is it saying here? Let's see. Do not press the screen or the front camera lens with your hand or with a sharp object. Don't put it near keys or magnets. It's not water resistant, unlike the other Galaxy S phones. So we're gonna put this over here and we'll get to the phone in a second. Another piece of paper, Galaxy SIII Premier Service 24-hour concierge and a 1-year screen replacement offer. Very nice. Again $1,400 phone, nice Samsungs giving you a little extra care. AT&T SIM card. We got this from AT&T. It's also available at Sprint. At Samsung.com. Best buy, unlocked or at one of those two carriers moving on fast charger USPA. So it's a USBC phone, but not a USBC power adapter will put that up here. Moving down sky Let's open this up a USBC to USB a adapter, put that over there USBC cable USB, a two USB see very nice. And lastly AKG these are probably the headphones. They are. USBC headphones and some extra tips so you can get a good fit for your ear. Very nice. Everything in here, nothing underneath the box. So there you go. This is the galaxy z flip unbox. Hi everyone. Sorry, we're gonna interrupt the unboxing For just a second. We were actually putting everything away and we noticed something. Hidden inside the flip portion of the box is this little Samsung thing. Now it may just seem like it's just the inside of the box. It's not, it's actually kind of important. So if we put our finger here, stuck in there real good It has more documentation, a little sim ejector tool. This has a physical SIM card so you have a little paperclip type object to take that out. And more importantly, there's actually a case for the Flip, which is really nice. So we got some again, more documentation. Terms and conditions, in case you didn't agree with a first couple of times. Reminder son of [UNKNOWN] protection. And then a case, the case is actually really useful because as the more we use this thing, it really is pretty slippery. So we've got a case, it's a little plastic. Here we go. This one just goes right here on the bottom. This little cutout over here goes right there on the top. And just like that you got a case for your 1400 dollar galaxy flip. Again if you are buying the flip Make sure to look at the top here. It probably won't pop out. It's stuck in there pretty good. There you go. Now, back to the video. [SOUND] Let's compare it to the box that comes with the Motorola Razor. This is the Razor box from Motorola, $1,500 on Verizon also available now. The light as it flip. God luck trying to find it. At least initially supplies are not easy to find. We actually had to send our producer Brian out to Queens to get our z flip. So there's the razor, you take off that premium casing, and if there's a little dock here With what looks like a glasses case, but it really holds all the accessories. We'll put this to the side here. Let's get to the main event. But first we got to take off this plastic, so we got a little slip up here. You have a slip over here. [BLANK_AUDIO] There we go. Little warning comes off. And there's a fingerprint sensor that doubles as a power button. Let's turn this on, there we go. So in the initial first impression, it feels a lot sturdier compared to the plastic Motorola Razr. This is made out of a combination of metal and glass. The screen on here is glass as opposed to plastic. That's the AT&T logo. Okay, and we bought this from AT&T. Actually was booting up this little Samsung front screen over here dual cameras flash and already getting a lot of fingerprints and we held it for maybe 10 seconds. All right screens a little bright. I don't know if I can adjust it but the setup process We're just gonna skip through here. Agree to everything. Skip the Wi Fi, you can do fingerprint, a pen, a pattern face recognition. There's the front camera over there. We're not gonna protect the phone now we'll deal with this later. Don't need to bring an old stuff. So I need to sign into Samsung. All done. Excellent. Another reminder After you finish all of the many steps that you should be very careful with this phone. It's $1,400.00 but it is fragile. Not water resistent, not dust resistent, and don't put screen protectors on this because that again, could damage the folding screen. Also magnets, doesn't like magnets. All right, well that's much better. Let's lower the brightness either way down a little bit. There we go. Now we're inside. handful of at&t apps over here my at&t for managing your account. Call protect for blocking spam, an AT&T thanks or reward program, visual voicemail over there and Game of Thrones, because you have a Games of Thrones Game. And full Samsung apps, but otherwise largely Google. There's a Spotify app and a Facebook app, but not too bad. I'm scrolling through here You don't really notice the crease on a white screen here, so you could see it if you look at it from an angle, there is a little crease where the phone folds and if we obviously fold it a little bit that becomes much more pronounced. But again, when you have fully open, you don't feel it as much as you do on the plastic Motorola razor. Let's close this thing. There's a satisfying, closing sound. Little fun screen here, as we mentioned before next to the two cameras, if you double click the power button can actually use this to take selfies. I don't know why you'd want to use this tiny screen for selfies. But if you did, you have the option. So that's that's nice. There we go. We can obviously open it up. Camera app is one of the many that takes advantage of the dual screen. So you can have your camera controls there, and then prop this as a selfie as a way to take a selfie like that, which is a much better use. Otherwise that's basically it. This is the galaxy flip. $1,380 available now from AT&T, Sprint, Samsung and BestBuy. You can get it on Sprint or AT&T or unlocked it works on T Mobile and Verizon. We're gonna put this through its paces so stay tuned to CNET for the full review. [MUSIC] [MUSIC]
