After using the Google Pixel Fold for 24 hours, I’m in love.

Even though we were late in receiving our Google Pixel Fold review unit, this allows me to talk about my experience while I write my review honestly. However, those who received it sooner were prohibited from doing so and could not.

I’ve had the Google Pixel Fold for approximately 24 hours (give or take a few hours) as of this writing, and I adore it.

Since essentially the Pixel 2 XL, a Pixel phone has always been my preferred choice. Therefore, it is no surprise that I enjoy this phone a lot. However, foldable has yet to capture my interest. The Pixel Fold may be foldable to purchase.

Pixel Fold addresses two significant issues with the Galaxy Z Fold 4

While the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s Motorola Razr+ addressed some of my issues, the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s Pixel Fold addresses two of my main grievances. The displays were my two main issues. The outside display is long and lean. On the one hand, typing is simple, but programs are incredibly confined. It nearly makes a square on the main show. It’s near 1:1 with a resolution of 1812 x 2176, though not precisely. Therefore, running two apps simultaneously will appear tall and lean, similar to the cover display. Additionally, because the show is more significant than a phone display and more akin to a tablet display, most apps will be stretched out if you use one.

I never utilized the Galaxy Z Fold for a length of time longer than my evaluation period. The Pixel Fold now corrects that. The front display of the Pixel Fold is larger. We’re discussing a 17.4:9 aspect ratio display, peculiar for a smartphone. I don’t know how I would feel about the broader collection, but I immensely like it.

The internal display is more comprehensive due to the more expansive front collection. And that largely resolves my second issue with the Galaxy Z Fold 4. On the Pixel Fold, you may use two apps simultaneously in split screen mode for a comparable experience to a traditional candy-bar phone. Now, with a 6:5 aspect ratio, it is still rather square. This makes using numerous apps at once on the Pixel Fold a terrific experience.

I only sometimes open the Pixel Fold

I never open the Pixel Fold’s main display because it is slightly bigger than most smartphones at 17.4:9. I essentially use it closed most of the time and open it when I need extra room. Open the Pixel Fold and use the entire 7.6-inch display for Google Maps, for example, if I’m looking for something on Google Maps. Or if I want to run two apps simultaneously.

Given that you have to open it to utilize it for most tasks, battery life will differ from that of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 (and shortly 5). It’s the opposite of The Pixel Fold. Therefore, the front display receives more power than the main display.

I’ve only had it for 24 hours, so it’s still too early to talk about battery life. And the Pixel Fold (and I!) are both still getting used to how I use my phone. But from afar, it is reasonable and comparable to the Galaxy Z Fold 4 from the previous year.

Is it the most excellent folding camera available?

With the camera, an OEM can differentiate itself from its many rivals. While Google did install inferior cameras in the Pixel Fold, following every other OEM’s lead, it still has Pixel Computational Photography at its core. I’ve only shot a few pictures with the Pixel Fold, but they align with what I would have anticipated from a Pixel phone. It is superior to the Pixel 7a but not entirely on par with the Pixel 7 Pro.

We’ll have much more in our review in about a week. Be sure to pay attention to that.

heavier but also lighter

Despite feeling lighter, the Pixel Fold weighs more than the Galaxy Z Fold 4. The Pixel Fold weighs 283g, compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s approximate weight of 263. Although the Pixel Fold is about 8% heavier than Samsung’s rival, it seems lighter.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4’s large and thick hinge is the only reason to explain this. Therefore, the weight isn’t distributed evenly like it is with the Pixel Fold. Given its greater size, it is reasonable that the Pixel Fold would be heavier. But the truth is that compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the Pixel Fold is easy to carry around in your pocket.

Since the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the only other book-style foldable I’ve used, I keep drawing comparisons to it. I never spent time with the possibilities from OPPO, Huawei, Honour, and other brands because they have yet to make it to the US.

Coming soon: the complete review

Both a thorough evaluation and many queries about the Pixel Fold can wait now. That will happen when it’s time. Most likely at the end of the following week. So stay tuned if you’re eager to learn more about the Pixel Fold.
