Good things often come in pairs, and the all-new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5? That’s definitely a good thing.

Along with the Galaxy Z Flip5, the Fold5 is the newest addition to the Samsung foldable family, offering a wide and varied suite of features that can accommodate all sorts of different users.

From gamers to office executives and even homemakers, this gorgeous, dynamic smartphone is absolutely packed with functionalities that all of these folks (and more) will find useful. Let’s take a closer look at why that is!

1. The Professionals

Multitask efficiently with a plethora of tools at your fingertips.

Sometimes you just need to get work done, and by “work”, we mean an entire laundry list of tasks, projects, and deadlines. Unsurprisingly, that’s why busy executives – from everyday office workers to expatriates and everything in between, are some of the best-fit users for the Galaxy Z Fold5.

The star of the show is the smartphone’s Multi-Window, which provides stellar multi-tasking capabilities even on the go, letting you shop, surf, take notes and more simultaneously. Speaking of notes, the Galaxy Z Fold5 is also compatible with the new-and-improved S-Pen (sold separately). It is the most portable iteration for the Fold series to date, allowing you unmatched precision even when you’re swapping between the 12 different apps on your taskbar.

Then, there’s also the camera, which pro creatives (like photographers) will certainly get amazing mileage out of. Sporting an array of outstanding cameras, including a 50MP wide-angle lens with 30x Space Zoom, plus nifty features like Dual Preview, you’ll be able to capture pixel-perfect pictures and videos which you can then edit on-the-spot if need be. Basically, it’ll be like carrying a mobile studio with you, especially if you sync it up with other Samsung devices (like the Galaxy Tab S9 Series) via Multi-Control.

2. The Friday Movie Nuts

Take your favourite films up a notch with an impressive, immersive display.

What’s better than being able to watch your favourite shows on your smartphone? Watching them on a bigger smartphone. Specifically, one that offers up to 21 hours of continuous video playback courtesy of its massive 4400mAh battery.

Measuring a whopping 7.6” when fully unfolded, the Galaxy Z Fold5’s screen real estate is no joke either. Naturally, this is great news for those who enjoy streaming TV dramas, movies or even YouTube videos for leisure or on their daily commute – after all, bigger is better, right?

What’s more, if you’re worried about sunlight ruining your “cinematic experience”, don’t be – the Galaxy Z Fold5 can emit a brightness of up to 1,750 nits, ensuring that you’ll still be well-immersed in the action even with the sunniest of skies overhead.

This sleek foldable is also much more portable than its predecessor, meaning you’ll have no issues bringing it around. Measuring a mere 13.4mm thin when folded and clocking only 253g on the scales, in addition to a trimmed down form factor that provides a better grip, it seems Samsung really didn’t skimp on the tinier details for this generation of foldables.

3. The Gamers

Enjoy both chill sessions and hardcore gaming grinds to the max. Skills not included.

Of course, we can’t talk about today’s smartphones without considering gaming experiences.

Regardless of whether you’re trading blows in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang or trying for your favourite characters in Honkai: Star Rail, you’ll love having the Galaxy Z Fold5’s powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform backing you up. It’s the fastest processor ever used for a Galaxy Z Fold, offering increases of up to 32%, 25%, and 18% for GPU, NPU and CPU categories respectively compared to its predecessor.

In simpler terms, it’s got a truckload of processing power, with the smoothest mobile gameplay money can buy. Topping that all off is an IPX8 water resistance rating as well as a sturdy, reinforced aluminium shell - aptly named Armor Aluminium, because what’s not to like about having an ultra-durable smartphone?

Interesting use cases for the smartphone, straight from the StarHub oven.

If you’re still with us, congratulations – you’ve made it to the part where we talk about why the Galaxy Z Fold5 is, oddly enough, a fantastic fit for homemakers in the kitchen.

On top of the various features outlined above, the 7.6” of screen real estate might be particularly useful for looking up and following recipes.

Not only can you prop the display up using the Flex Hinge (an amazing feature it shares with the Galaxy Z Flip5) for easy viewing, but you can easily control your favourite music at the same time using the other screen if need be. Sure, it might not be the greatest invention since sliced bread, but we think it’ll make your cooking experiences that much more seamless and enjoyable.


There’s no better time to enter the Fold!

With productivity and performance checked off the list, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 is, all in all, an excellent general-purpose workhorse that’ll fit and work well for numerous user profiles.

Its current array of features opens up vast possibilities for Samsung’s tech and device ecosystem down the line, and you can rest assured that StarHub will have you covered every step of the way.
