One of the biggest points to note, especially for gamers, would be the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 battery backup. Not too long ago, we witnessed a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 vs Galaxy Z Flip 3 battery drain test to check how much the latest Flip from Samsung is “greater than” its predecessor. In the test, Flip 3 struggled to keep up with its successor. The 3,300mAh battery barely gets through 10 hours when web browsing and seven hours watching YouTube videos. You’ll have to rely on power banks if you want to get through the end of a heavy work day.
