Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 vs Microsoft Surface Duo vs LG wings

Compare between Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 vs Microsoft Surface Duo vs LG wings – In this age of technology and knowledge, everything is considered premium when a company produces something innovative and incredible to open a new horizon. After that, Samsung leads the trend of dealing with folding phones and presenting it to the conventional market. Microsoft also dubbed its first foldable smartphone. On the same note, LG is not behind Samsung and Microsoft in bringing new innovations and technologies.

Microsoft and Samsung present two different concepts for the foldable smartphone segment. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a true flagship, and Surface Duo is also an equal-level smartphone. However, their specifications did not match the roles. But, both are the best on the foldable horizon of smartphones. Just like foldable phones, LG has set a new standard in the market with its LG Wing having a unique rotating display. So, let’s see who is the best among them.

Comparison between Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 vs Microsoft Surface Duo vs LG wings

Design

The design interpretation of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is quite clear; there are two screens, one inside and one on the outside panel. To be more precise, the layout somewhat resembles the design of the Note 20 series, as well as the positioning of the camera. This shows Samsung’s innovation in its design. The Surface Duo comes with a simple and fantastic layout made with premium material that gives an authentic touch to it. The 4: 3 aspect ratio is good enough.

In addition, it comes with a hinge mechanism that makes it easy to hold the phone and, on the same note, appears to have a simple yet elegant design. Last but not the least, LG Wing sports a dual premium screen layout, and one of them rotates to provide users a whole new experience and concept of technology. The rear panel on the Wing is again pretty similar to Samsung’s Note 20 series.

Display

As we mentioned earlier, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 achieves a dual-screen layout that doubles as a small single screen, which resembles its previous version, although the Fold 2 is thinner than that, and there is no gap between the two screens. But, it can’t move 360 ° like the Microsoft Surface Duo. Both Surface Duo monitors connect via a hinge, thus, they can move freely.

While the Galaxy Z Fold 2 equips a brilliant premium quality Foldable Dynamic AMOLED 120 Hz refresh rate that comes with HDR 10+. The T-shaped rotating display in LG Wing features an FHD+ resolution main panel beside a comparatively small second display unit. The second display works as an assistant to view the game map while gaming or using media controls when you binge-watch web series. Both on paper and in real life, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 wins in terms of screen quality and features as compared to two other phones.

Memory and Software

Samsung’s Fold 2 features the latest flagship Snapdragon 865+ chipset under its hood, with several advanced adjustments and tricks to enhance the multitasking experience. On the other hand, Microsoft Surface Duo hits last year’s flagship Snapdragon 855 SoC on its board but lacks resources, and that’s difficult.

In terms of performance, the Fold 2 is superior and provides 12 GB of RAM, while the highest variant of Surface Duo goes up to 6 GB of RAM only. Unlike Samsung and Microsoft, LG Wing ships with a mid-range Snapdragon 765G 5G processor combined with 8 GB of RAM for flawless CPU intensive workloads and uninterrupted gaming. All three companies must provide a three-year update on software support with security features.

Camera

The Samsung Fold 2 design is a complete flagship one and the company has inserted precisely a trio of 12MP cameras, which can undoubtedly produce high-quality images and 4K videos with EIS-gyro. In addition, there are tons of camera features intact to take advantage of the camera department’s full potential.

On the other side of the coin, the Surface Duo paired with a single 11 MP camera port that works like both primary camera and selfie. At the end of the day, LG Wing comprising 64MP, 13MP, and 12MP triple camera turns tables on both the competitors offering much sharper images. Thanks to the 32MP pop-up selfie camera in the Wing which means more screen to body ratio.

Battery

The Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes with a larger and more powerful 4500 mAh battery, along with fast wired charging, a wireless charging pad, and reverse charging support that helps the phone get a huge power supply.

As for battery concerns on the Surface Duo, a 3570 mAh battery with 18 W fast charging is supported, although it has no wireless or reverse charging capability. With Quick Charge 4+ technology, you need not worry about charging the 4000mAh battery in LG Wing. Additionally, wireless charging is also provided by LG.

Conclusion

Microsoft could have launched the Surface Duo earlier, but due to the delay and arriving with below-trend specifications, that’s why it has lowered its price to $1499 while the Fold 2 comes with an exorbitant price of $ 2,000. Finally talking about LG Wing, it is somewhat a new concept from LG which might attract technology lovers towards it with a pricing of $1400.

There is no doubt that in each feature, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is much more advanced and amazing than the Surface Duo and LG Wing. In short, Fold 2 is the winner of the comparison in our opinion.
