Imagine, they put their best camera system into Fold. In such a case, the price should be a few hundreds more than the price of S23U. I must admit, I would still buy it. The solution for people like us who wanted the best camera in Fold would be releasing a Fold Ultra, even if it was heavier.

I personally wouldnt put it in the bad category but comapred to my other phones i just think it could do a bit better. Also, was on vacation with my 2 sisters - one had a huawei p50pro and the other had an s22ultra and sometimes when we take a picture we'd compare the results, and it just couldnt compete.
All im saying is if theyd put a slightly better camera (maybe the s21 ultra setup at least) then it will be the best phone. I do understand however why samsung wont do it - cause the S line will die.

I think it is just a matter of personal preference. I have to admit that I also often use the Pro Mode.
200MP camera is the main value of S23U, if Fold 5 also used this value, it will kill their own product, i think.

It's no secret that each half of a folding phone needs to be as thin as possible, so we're never going to see these new massive sensors on them, and the selling point for the Fold series will remain productivity rather than camera prowess. The Fold 4 cameras aren't bad by any stretch, but the S23 series (especially the Ultra) blows them out of the water.

Also, majority of foldable phones uses Samsung display.
That two major reasons why your statement sounds stupid.
It may be impossible to fit the new 200MP sensor in there but no one can convince me there isn't a better sensor than the one on the Fold4 they could use. I understand having to cut costs somewhere to sell a foldable device but the cameras on the Fold4 are really poor for a flagship.

I have used the fold4 camera very sparingly because to be honest, it just pales in comparison to my secondary phones.
Oh no Samsung, bad move.
Im not expecting an S23ultra camera upgrade, but at least s22ultra or s21ultra camera.
Ive had the fold 2, fold3 and now fold4, and the only thing thats preventing it to be the best all rounder phone is the camera, not the hinge and not the crease. I can accept that the spen is not built in, i dont mind the battery size and charging speed. If theres any upgrade i wish they added in fold5 is better camera.l, so i can finally get rid of the need for a secondary phone.
Just be happy Samsung even bothered to copy Oppo's hinge. What choices do you have if they upgraded nothing
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2023You seem to like samsung articles alot... I've been observing you for some while now and ... moreThe thing is, I work at a phone accessory store. The most popular phones are iPhones and Samsung phones pretty much everywhere, so I obviusly see them a lot. Most people buy Samsung phones because there is nothing else they know on the market, but they do not like these phones, they don't like it that they didn't receive a charger, no one told them it wasn't gonna be included and they don't like how sluggish they all feel. Only exception being the A52s and the A72.
Other than this issue, many people praise Samsung that they give so many software updates. Good, but what's the point of these updates if the hardware can't handle them? One of my friends has an A52 (the regular non 5G one), he had no issues with it, until the latest update, now it's full of bugs, turns off randomly and everything.
Another reason why people praise Samsung is their international warranty. Which is pure rubbish. I had a Galaxy S8, used it for a year and I had to change the wifi chip in it TWICE, wasn't covered under warranty. My other friend had a Z Flip 4 for 4 months, after that the screen broke and Samsung told him it's his fault.

I've been observing you for some while now and I've only seen you comment on their articles. And such comments can be so negative and aggressive.
Why cant they rotate so the screens are 16:9 rather than fold very tall?
That's good, because S23U camera is terrible...

Aside from that, they did change the main camera hardware with the 14 Pro, so you are wrong with just about everything you said.
*Apple uses similar camera on its 4th consecutives year*
People: Apple is very innovative. Android is bad, Apple is king👍
*Samsung creates foldables with IP rating and creaseless screen also far cheaper than Z Fold2's launching price but with similar camera as last year*
People: Scamsung, Shamesung, Samdung, Sumsang. Even old cheap iphone 6 is 100 times better than Z Fold5.
Fold4 has 3 cameras and the main camera is the best of them and was just introduced. Asking for changing it just does not make any sense. Its performance will get better with the new SD chip and ISP anyway. Only the outcome counts and not anything else.
I would understand if someone said the lack of 10x zoom was a problem. Or if Samsung missed to add macro mode to its ultra-wide camera. But changing the best lens just because for the sake of changing does not make any sense.
I don't know why samsung boycotted curve design phones.
I personally started hating samsung after S10 series, specifically S9+ series.
I wonder samsung should not have been done this.
But recently when fold was launched it was a premium and unique mobile in market for everyone.
I request samsung to refocus on curve phone again for galaxy S24 or Upcoming S series, because the best model launched by samsung was S6 Edge and then comes fold series.
Often people mentions the same camera, when only the image sensor size is the same. Also, Samsung photos are great already. Could they get better? Obviously. And that's why the new SoC and improved algorithms should help.
The Fold 5 should be about serious refinements and improvements to an already great productivity device.
I personally wish it had a 5x zoom, but not having it, would not really be a deal breaker.
