This year's main smartphone / Smartphone

⇣ Content

The possibility of making gadgets with flexible screens has been discussed for a long time – displays that do not require special substrate with backlighting, but are built on organic LEDs capable of independent lighting, have been known for years and really scream about this option. And yes, we see many different concepts, but devices available to consumers will be released in large numbers only in 2019.

At CES in January, one of the most popular products was the folding smartphone from Chinese company Royole. There, for the first time, the LG TV, folded into a tube and departed for the default soundbar, was presented. And finally, closer to spring, almost simultaneously, the volleyball of Samsung and Huawei thundered – folding Galaxy Fold and Mate X smartphones, respectively. Around the same time, Lenovo announced the creation of a "clamshell" – this is how they will revive the legendary Motorola RAZR. More is more, but today we are talking about the loudest of all these sets of devices and the first to enter the world market. We are talking about Samsung Galaxy Fold.

This smartphone should have been sold freely in the early summer, but in a way that is almost familiar to Koreans, it was humiliated – the smartphone sent to journalists and bloggers first fell apart while traveling and Samsung delayed launch without limits. At the time, it seemed that the situation was developing in accordance with the Galaxy Note7 disaster scenario and it was impossible to straighten it (a smartphone that exploded finally entered the market, but did not enjoy any popularity – the series's reputation was only healed by time and several successive launches), and indeed confidence. that Fold did indeed enter the market. But he still came out. We wrote our first impression of a fixed smart smartphone from IFA Berlin in September. Now we have finally gotten acquainted with smartphones in real use.

It was a combination of a revolutionary approach to the idea of ​​a smartphone and the high profile scandal raging around it that made me choose a title like that. I need to make a reservation right away – this is about the 2019 (most important) smartphone first, and not the best. Do not be confused.

Samsung Galaxy Fold – information about charging according to the CPU-Z application

⇡ #Design and ergonomics

Of course, the first association with the Samsung Galaxy Fold is filled with irony: "case", "cigarette case", "TV remote control". Indeed, when folded, it is a heavy and thick device (15.5 mm) with truly unusual proportions for modern smartphones. The elongated "external" display does not occupy the entire surface of the panel, the large space below and above it looks blasphemous, and the incomplete "shutters" that do not approach the edges are Samsung's shortcomings.

However, all the irony with skepticism soon disappears, you just need to start using the gadget. It's really great to execute: the front and rear windshield panels (when folded) blends perfectly with the metal on the side, and thanks to unusual proportions like Galaxy Fold, it's very comfortable to hold in your hand. During the photo shoot, the gadget is really similar to the classic compact camera soap box rather than the usual, thin, and unstable in a horizontal orientation smartphone. Collapsible shooting in Creases is really comfortable. Apart from that, despite the glass surface, I can't call Fold slippery – thanks to the same shape, it holds tight.

But he still puffed up his pocket, and it tasted very good there – 236 grams. Nevertheless, we are talking, in fact, about folding tablets in the smartphone's "body", rather than about the device functions that are normal for us. It's worth saying that this isn't the first gadget of its kind – a folding tablet already in existence, now almost forgetting the Sony Tablet P. Forgotten for obvious reasons – the huge gap between the two screens and the lack of an "external" screen that will add to the smartphone's taste in him, is killed. original concept. And here he is back in a more logical and correct execution.

In the design of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, all efforts are thrown into "solidity" and "premium". I have already said about the material, the color is also no joke – both dark gray and black, or silver-black. This is an expensive toy – there is no time to experiment and flirt with young audiences.

But the toy is fragile – in the box there is a reminder that immediately points to this, calling for accuracy in handling the device. In it, in particular, it is proposed to hide it on the cover, which consists of two separate parts magnetized to the body – they are also painted in a dull gray color, but they are executed cool. I want to know if optional, more fun cases will be made.

The inner surface of the screen is not covered with glass, but with polymers that can be scratched not only with metal objects, but even with nails – for this, however, you should try. During the testing week, I did not damage the device in any way. You just need to make sure that nothing falls on the open screen and then, when you close it, don't be heartbroken. In addition, don't be rushed and excited when the smartphone collapses, pressing corners – however, here I don't see any extraordinary weaknesses. The hinges are normal, the force required is sane, the recoil is good.

The first thing you notice when you open the Samsung Galaxy Fold is the same "wrinkle" in the middle of the screen, round the corner. This is very visible … but only at first. I am afraid that this bend will continually call my eyes and make me nervous, but you really get used to it quickly, and when using the device you stop paying attention.

But the cut-out in the corner of the "internal screen" manifests itself. If in the system application or on the main screen it does not interfere at all, then intrusion into the body of any video that you decide to watch horizontally oriented screen (which is where Fold is made first) seems excessive – it definitely cuts off the visible part from that, and to avoid this, it's not like working with "cutouts" is impossible. You can, of course, scale the image very strongly, squeeze it in the middle of the screen, but then what's the use of 7.3 inches? I see a strong need for additional internal selfie cameras (these are also sophisticated, dual, like the Samsung Galaxy S10 +) made up – you can only do what's on the cover and leave the internal screen just for video.

For all natural originality, functional elements in smartphone places are quite familiar. In the folded state, almost everything is concentrated on the right hand side – this is the power on / volume button, and the SIM card slot and fingerprint scanner. When opened, the slot moves to the left, but this does not affect the way you use the device. On the top and bottom faces – according to dynamics, Samsung treats stereo sound. But I don't bother with analog audio jacks – apart from the apparent thickness of the device, in the form of a folded case thickness of only 6.9 mm – yes, the 3.5 mm jack is theoretically suitable, but, apparently, in practice the place is still not found. Dear

Yes, the fingerprint scanner is on the edge here – like the old Sony Xperia or Samsung Galaxy S10E. This is a classic capacitive sensor, and works well, although sometimes there is not enough surface area, you have to drag your finger back and forth. Therefore, it is better to duplicate the user identification method with face recognition. It works both with an external camera and with an internal – a kind of advanced Face ID here, only the front camera works, without a depth sensor. But it works quickly and reliably enough – it's not possible to fool the camera with photos.

⇡ #Software

There are no surprises with the operating system: Samsung Galaxy Fold runs Android 9 Pie with a proprietary UI One shell. We wrote about this several times this year (in reviews of the Galaxy S10 +, Galaxy A80, Galaxy Note10 +), here we can repeat what was said before: a new, simple and a little cartoon style combined with accurate execution and smooth work – this is the logical development of Samsung's research on smartphone software, the best shell ever made by a Korean company. You can claim it for the Bixby panel instead of Google Now and the (awkward) effort of the Bixby brand assistant to replace Google Assistant.

But we're still not talking about ordinary Samsung smartphones, though superior, but about smartphones that turn into tablets and vice versa. From a four inch screen in 21: 9 format to a seven inch screen in 4: 3 format. As you might expect, with all the basic embedded applications, the process runs smoothly and smoothly – information is transferred without problems, the system adjusts easily. They take notes on the small screen, open Fold – and continue to do it on the big screen. But with third-party software there's a problem – just continuing a session from the same place doesn't always work, the application might request a reboot. Normally, this doesn't cause a problem – after all, you almost don't want to play mobile games on the small screen, you will immediately launch them in tablet mode. But sometimes extra measures can be annoying. Also, not all applications are suitable for working on large screens with non-standard navigation icon locations, for example. I found this in VLC Player, where the playback controls turn out to be in the "dead" zone, inaccessible for interaction – in the device's portrait orientation, everything is fine in the landscape.

But in addition to some roughness, Fold with the main display that has quite a number of additional features and features. First, the keyboard, which is divided into two parts – for people who type with two hands, will be very comfortable (for me – no). Second, the side panel, which comes from the Galaxy with a curved display. Third, the split screen mode is implemented well – not only into two, but even into three or four parts; In addition, you can display several applications above an open window – useful for something like a calculator. Well, it's worth mentioning a new theme for the desktop, which usually beats the folding nature of the screen – with butterflies or the "Rorschach test" color.

Что касается логичного вопроса «Как при помощи Galaxy Fold» разговаривать по телефону – разработчики и помоте но иномение. В этом режиме вы действуете как обычно, звук идет из разговорного динамика. Если разложить Fold, то аппарат самостоятельно переключится на громкую связь, что логично. Разговорного динамика внутри Fold нет, приложить к уху планшет не получится.

Есть и одна мелкая, но обидно упущенная возможность, которая была, например, в vivo NEX Dual Display – Fold при съемке на в раскрытом состоянии на малый экран не выдается картинка и объект не может контролировать процесс. А иногда это может быть очень полезно – раз уж такая возможность доступна в теории.

⇡ #Дисплей и звук

Оба экрана в Samsung Galaxy Fold выполнены по технологии Dynamic AMOLED – и сомневаться в качестве панелей от компани-итое и сомпиние Внешний дисплей получил диагональ 4,6 дюйма и разрешение 1680 × 720 точек. Плотность пикселей – 397 ppi. Этого достаточно, чтобы не замечать никакой недостачи в резкости невооруженным глазом. Панель качественная, экран почти не теряет контрастности при взгляде под экстремальным углом. Формат экрана – 21: 9. Несмотря на «кинематографическое» соотношение сторон. Для этих целей этот небольшой экранчик подходит превосходно.

Внутренний, главный, дисплей диагональю 7.3 дюйма получил разрешение 1536 × 2152. Плотность пикселей – 362pi. Маловато для устройства, которое позиционируется как идеальный мультимедийный «комбайн». На помощь при решении одной проблемы, впрочем, приходит другая – на экране форматом 4: 3 любой фильм (как правило формата 16: 9) занимает только его среднюю часть, оставляя огромные черные полосы сверху и снизу; проблем с четкостью даже при запуске 4К-роликов не будет заметно. Про беду с мешающимся вырезом с фронтальными камерами я уже писал выше. Как и про складку по центру экрана, которая поначалу сильно бесит, но это быстро проходит.

Ощущения от экрана с полимерной поверхностью примерно те же, что от обычного, прикрытого стекл. Он кажется немного «мятым» и необычно переливается, но это не сказывается на восприятии ино. Его плюс – почти не собирает отпечатки пальцев, заляпать внутренний экран, по сути, невозоже. Внешний же снабжен вполне эффективным олеофобным покрытием.

Есть настраиваемый режим Always-On Display – можно выбрать не только что отображать на заблокированном (внешки). Смартфон реагирует, если его взять в руки – он включает экран, показывает время и уведомлния.

Набор настроек экрана мы уже хорошо знаем по другим смартфонам с One UI – ничего нового для двухете немение Список параметров довольно большой в том, что касается шрифтов и масштабирования, а вот вариантов по цветопередаче всего два: «насыщенный» (с возможностью менять баланс белого и вручную настраивать три главных цвета) и «естественный». По сути они означают цветовой охват в сочетании с цветовой температурой – возможность видеть картинку максимально приближенной к оригиналу или более яркой, броской и полноцветной, но менее естественной. Для просмотра видео с поддержкой HDR10 + (заявленной в характеристиках) рекомендуется использовать именно режим «насыщенные цвета», при котором достигаются пики яркости.

Оба дисплея демонстрируют примерно одинаковую пиковую яркость при измерении в помещенира снение сременика смене. Внешний дисплей показал пик в 437 кд / м2, внутренний – в 441 кд / м2. Это хорошие показатели для экранов на базе органических светодиодов, пользоваться Galaxy Fold комфортно при любых условиях как в сложенном, так и в разложенном виде. Цветопередачу я померил только для внутреннего экрана, для которого качество настройки куда более критично, чем для более-менее «технического» внешнего.

В режиме цветопередачи «насыщенные цвета» Samsung Galaxy Fold использует цветовую гамму, близкую по площаите не нементе нементе. Среднее значение гаммы составляет 2,14, что близко к идеалу, но кривые ведут себя излишне фриволк; цветовая температура слегка повышена (в среднем – 7500 К с кратковременными падениями до эталонных 6500 К), среднее отклонение DeltaE по расширенной палитре Color Checker (оттенки серого + широкий набор цветовых оттенков) составляет 4.90 (при норме 3 и эталонном значении 2 ).

В режиме цветопередачи «естественные цвета» цветовой охват приближен к sRGB – и измерения мы поверяем по этому стандарту. Средний уровень гаммы по оттенкам серого не меняется — 2,18 (кривые ведут себя похожим образом, но чуть стабильнее), температура чуть теплее и ближе к эталону (держится в районе 7 000 К), а вот среднее отклонение DeltaE по шкале Color Checker неожиданно становится только хуже — 5,06. Это тот редкий случай, когда я не рекомендую переключаться с предлагаемого по умолчанию «насыщенного» режима — цвета будут резковаты и чуть холодноваты, но в целом он предложит даже чуть более честную цветопередачу. В целом же от смартфона Samsung ждешь более точной и качественной настройки дисплея.

В разговоре о звуковых возможностях Samsung Galaxy Fold хочется повторить сказанное про Galaxy Note10+ — корейская компания, раз изменив сама себе, продолжила эту порочную линию жизни — без мини-джека. Для смартфона/планшета, который представляется практически идеальным спутником в долгой поездке, такой недостаток кажется критичным — у беспроводных наушников имеет свойство кончаться батарейка и решить этот вопрос, подключившись к смартфону по проводу, невозможно. Я не говорю уже про аудиофильский потенциал — в любом случаев у смартфонов он, как правило, весьма ограничен.

С беспроводной передачей сигнала у Galaxy Fold нет проблем, все необходимые профили (aptX, aptX HD, LDAC) на месте. С динамиками дело обстоит хорошо — они тут стереофонические. Для полного кайфа не хватило только их размещения слева и справа при горизонтальном хвате в разложенном состоянии, а не сверху и снизу. Но они и так выдают очень приличный звук. Как телефон Samsung Galaxy Fold проявляет себя хорошо, претензий к этой его ипостаси я предъявить не могу.
