Sick and tired of massive phones that won't fit properly in your pocket?
While larger phones are the norm in 2023, sometimes they can be a mighty inconvenience to carry around, and that's what makes clamshell handsets like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 super appealing, and now it's even more appearling with a huge 50% discount.
You'll still get a decent 6.7-inch display with these foldable phones, but the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 comes with the ability to fold in half, offering a more compact form factor that you can slip into a small bag or straight into a pocket. It even has a display on the front so you don't have to fold it out to check the time or messages.
Sure, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is here and it boasts a nicer cover screen than it's predecessor, but you're likely not going to be finding the 2023 handset at this price anytime soon – so if you want a compact, clamshell phone, we highly recommend you snatch up this early Black Friday offer on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.

SG$1,300 SG$630 at Lazada (save SG$670)
Harking back to 2000s clamshell handsets, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is a compact option for anyone who's after a retro-looking phone with modern capabilities. There's a whopping 51% discount on Lazada currently, sneaking in post the 11.11 Singles Day sales and ahead of the Black Friday sales. Available at this price in the purple, light blue and navy colour options with the other varieties on offer a varied discounts as well.
Just note, this offer is through a third party seller on Lazada – the ratings for this seller are high though, but that's something to keep in mind.
Samsung's not the only phone manufacturer that's been toying with the stylish flip phone design – Motorola has also unleashed its latest iterations of the Razr this year, so there's a nice variety available for fans of this nostalgia-inducing style of phone.
With each version of the Galaxy Z Flip phones, Samsung makes big improvements that are key to their longevity. Taking notes from the Galaxy Z Flip 3, the Galaxy Z Flip 4's display is 20% more durable than its predecessor with the ability to repel minor scratches. Foldable displays can be intimidating to switch to, but Samsung has made some concerted efforts on both the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and its larger sibling the Galaxy Z Fold 4 to ensure the display remains crack free, even on the crease.
There's no compromises on performance and features either – the Flip 4 packs in a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, 8GB of RAM and a promise of at least 4 years worth of Android OS updates, so while it may have already passed its first birthday, it's still got plenty of life in it, and you can snatch it for a much better price than it's successor.
