Despite being equipped with a dual screen, the Samsung Galaxy Fold battery used is only a real 4380mAh. This equates to 80mAh bigger than the Note 10+ and 120mAh smaller than the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. We had this concern that the battery capacity was too small for the Fold but our expectations fell short.
In normal use, the Fold is capable of lasting up to 12 hours with the screen attached for 8 hours. The usage life can reach 26 hours with the screen attached for 6 hours if the device is used more carefully. We feel this is just modest battery life but is forgivable as it is a first generation device. There has been no benchmark for devices with dual foldable screens on the market before.
What is unforgivable is the charging time of 2 hours as it only supports 15W charging at this time. The Note 10+ with a 4300 mAh battery can be charged in just 70 minutes as it supports the 18W charger that comes with every purchase. To ensure the success of their foldable devices, Samsung needs to support a faster charging system. Fold’s target is professionals and they certainly don’t want to wait two hours for the battery to be fully charged.

Audio on tablets is typically better than on smartphones. The larger body size allows for more sleek speakers with a better acoustic chamber installed as can be seen on the iPad Pro and Galaxy Tab S6. Fold audio capabilities fall in the midst of smartphones and tablets.
Start positively first. There is true stereo audio support complete with Dolby Atmos on this Samsung android. The two large speakers are placed on two opposite Fold “wings”. When Dolby Atmos is activated, treble crunch, bass rumble and audio volume can be clearly heard. Even at the highest audio level, the audio is still with a very satisfactory audio isolation. This good audio makes watching videos and firsts like COD Mobile very immersive.
The negative thing lies in no more audio jacks. Even now now in November we still find it hard not to say the absence of audio jacks as not a big issue. Also there are no negative comments we can give about the audio on the Fold.
