If your boo happens to be someone who is not tethered to Apple’s iPhone, then Samsung’s hip and trendy Galaxy Z Flip foldable smartphone. The latest model is now 5G ready and comes with these cool features:

  • Use the Cover Display as a Selfie Viewfinder: Users can capture amazing selfies whenever the mood strikes by double-tapping the fingerprint sensor when the device is folded to turn the cover display into a selfie viewfinder.
  • Launch Multi-Window Mode Quickly: The Galaxy Z Flip makes multitasking simpler. Users can run apps in Multi Window mode by opening them from the Multi-Window Tray, which can be accessed by swiping the right side of the display.
  • One-handed Mode: Simply double tap on the home button or swipe down in the center of the bottom edge, and one-handed mode will temporarily scale down the display size so users can reach everything on the main display with only one hand.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G also has a new price and is $250 cheaper. You can order one by heading here.
