In addition to offering a visual differentiation on the front of the phone, the Oppo’s cover display provides a unique user experience. Whereas the Z Flip 4’s cover display features little widgets that offer helpful information, the Locate N2 Flip is a miniature vertical smartphone display.
Measuring 3.26 inches diagonally, it is significantly larger than the Galaxy’s 1.92-inch display. This means that while taking selfies or videos oneself, you have a nearly crop-free perspective of yourself and may frame yourself more effectively.
It also lets you view your daily calendar appointments and do other vital operations without opening the phone. Whether responding to messages, monitoring the weather, or awaiting alerts. It just holds more information. Ideal for you in a rush, you can also use it to react to messages without opening the phone.
Samsung’s display is more for rapidly checking the weather, your calendar, and whether you have notifications, but it might be a better size for interaction; for most things, the internal screen is superior.

Both phones feature displays that are relatively long and narrow. Oppo’s screen, which measures 6.8 inches and has a 21:9 aspect ratio, is larger and has a more standard aspect ratio. Samsung’s smartphone is much narrower than regular cell phones, with a balance of 22:9.
Regarding other specifications, they are remarkably identical. Both have a full HD+ resolution display, though the aspect ratios differ slightly. These are both flexible AMOLED displays with refresh rates up to 120Hz when necessary.
Oppo’s display has a peak brightness of 1600 nits, making it the brighter of the two. Still, with a maximum brightness of 1200 nits, the Samsung is unquestionably bright enough to be viewable in most settings. Both are compatible with HDR10+ content as well.As previously stated, the Oppo display folds to minimize the internal crease. That may result in an enhanced visual experience overall. To be specific, we will need to compare both options side-by-side.
Efficacy and battery life

Both phones are internally equipped with high-end chipsets. In contrast to the book-style Find N2, Oppo collaborated with MediaTek on the clamshell form. It has a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ processor, delivering fast and fluid performance.
Samsung opted for the tried-and-true flagship Snapdragon processor; mainly, it is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which provides top-tier performance without causing the phone to overheat or use excessive battery life.
Regarding batteries, Oppo has accomplished something rather remarkable. It has a huge 4300mAh battery for a phone this size. It’s much bigger than the 3700mAh battery in the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and almost as big as the battery in Samsung’s foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Fold 4.
In addition, its 44W SuperVOOC charging is far faster than Samsung’s 25W charging capabilities. But Samsung’s Z Flip 4 provides the option for wireless charging. This convenience is not available on the Oppo phone.
There are several storage choices for each smartphone, which you receive depending on where you purchase it. Oppo is introduced in China in 8GB/256GB, 12GB/256GB, and 16GB/512GB configurations. In addition to 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB capacities, Samsung currently offers devices with 8GB RAM.

The two devices comparably approach cameras. They both have a primary camera and an ultrawide camera. However, their specifications differ.
Samsung took a consistent approach by equipping its two front-facing primary cameras with two 12-megapixel sensors. It supports up to 4K resolution recording at 60 fps or 1080p resolution recording at 240 fps for super slow-mo video.
Sony gives Oppo’s main camera a large 50-megapixel sensor, while the ultrawide camera uses an 8-megapixel sensor. Oppo worked with Hasselblad to improve its color processing, which you can see in its camera app. The maximum video resolution is 4K at 30 frames per second and 1080p at 60 frames per second. Samsung will provide a better experience for individuals who care about video.
Oppo has crammed a 32-megapixel sensor into its punch-hole camera, while Samsung opted for a lower resolution 10-megapixel sensor.
Find N2 Flip: £849 Z Flip 4: £999
Pricing is attractive because now that Samsung’s phone has been available for half a year, you can find it lower than at launch, making Oppo and Samsung’s efforts comparable.
The Z Flip cost around £1000 when it was released in 2022. Oppo’s phone costs £849. When spreading the expense over monthly installments, it’s not much.
Oppo Flip’s cover display is its main appeal. It allows vertical full-screen selfies and videos and is different from competitors’ external screens. With Oppo’s optimizations, its larger battery should last longer than Samsung’s—faster charging.
Samsung is a strong brand. European and western shoppers know it better. It’s also known for flexible phones. The water-resistant design, bespoke color options, and wireless charging make it a stunning smartphone.
