Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 smartphones at the Galaxy Unpacked event last week. The new devices come with improved battery life and charging speed than their predecessors.
At the same time, the phones also equip some advanced internals like Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset that is new in the Qualcomm family and delivers a great performance.
On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra was launched in February this year. It features a more powerful battery capacity than the new foldable phones and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.
YouTuber TechDroider recently shared a test video that puts the all-new Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 against Galaxy S22 Ultra, Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, OnePlus 10 Pro, and Xiaomi 12S Ultra.
The test video takes the phones to games, web browsing, and social media apps. Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra was the first phone to die. It only lasted 8 hours and 56 minutes on a single charge and its temperature had risen to 50.4°C.
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 lasted 9 hours and 4 minutes and its temperature was 42°C. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 survived 9 hours and 18 minutes on a single charge and its temperature was less than both two Galaxy phones – 39.7°C.
There’s a big difference in both foldable and Galaxy S22 Ultra temperatures. This shows the new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is effectively powerful than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
Also, the test proved that there’s not much difference in the number of Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 battery capacities than the Fold 3 and Flip 3, but Samsung has significantly improved their batteries.
Moving on, the OnePlus 10 Pro managed to last one minute more than the Galaxy Z Fold 4 but its temperature had risen to 45°C. The Xiaomi 12S Ultra which also uses Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor has survived 9 hours and 38 minutes and its temperature was 44.1°C.
The Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, on the other hand, is the winner of the text. It has the best battery life among these six smartphones. It stayed 10 hours and 35 minutes, however, it was hotter than the Fold 4 – 40.5°C.

Flagship phones to get more pricey as Samsung hikes camera sensor prices
Camera-centric flagship smartphones could be expensive as Samsung has increased the price of ISOCELL image sensors. As camera sensors are one of the most expensive parts, it could increase the price of 2024 flagships.
While companies are working hard to improve the smartphone camera experience, flagship models with cameras as their core selling point are likely to become more expensive. The main reason is that Samsung has increased the price of its components.
The smartphone industry has slowed down over the past few years, leaving manufacturers involved in component production with excess inventory. Samsung is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of CMOS sensors, which are used in its own phones and those of other brands.
As the smartphone market slowly grows, Samsung has reportedly sent notices to phone manufacturers to increase the price of its imaging sensors by 25%. The new prices may take effect in early 2024. Samsung’s increase in the price of imaging sensors will mainly affect sensors of 32 million pixels and above.
This could force smartphone manufacturers to increase the cost of high-end smartphones. Meanwhile, Samsung’s rivals in the field, Sony and OmniVision, have yet to announce price increases.
