Also, hear what these customers have to say about the Galaxy Z series

“I’m amazed with the features on my Galaxy Z Fold4, especially the bigger screen. It has made it more enjoyable for me to play games. This is my first time using a foldable phone. The reason I purchased it was because I wanted to try something unique especially when compared with standard phones. The feature I love most is the multi-tasking function that enables me to complete a number of few tasks much faster, such as checking information while having video call with my colleague. Also, when I’m taking a photo of someone, the device lets them view the screen too, so they can see if the angle is good. It saves me a lot a time when I take photos of my other half!”
Loo, Sales Manager

“My first impression of the Galaxy Z Flip4 is the eye-catching design and Bora Purple colour. It looks so chic when I see a celebrity using one in a drama series. My fiancé bought this device for me, as he knew I always wanted one and I am excited to be one of the first to own. With my Galaxy Z Flip4, I can multitask using my device and it's really convenient for me to read an article and watch a drama at the same time. I love and enjoy the features, especially the front camera where I easily access it by double tapping it!
