Foldable phones have been around for a while now. And although I’ve found them disappointing at times, their clever bendable displays offer a fun experience that you simply don’t get on regular smartphones. The market is dominated by Samsung, with its Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 offering different folding forms to tempt you to part with your cash. But Samsung isn’t the only company in the game.

The Pixel Fold is the first folding phone from Google. Despite a few quirks, it’s still a solid first effort. Motorola’s folding 2023 Razr Plus flip phone also scored well in our review, offering solid specs and competitive prices. Then there are folding phones from Honor and Oppo, which we really like. However, though they’re excellent options for people in Europe, they’re not on sale in the US. 

There’s still no sign of a folding iPhone. Sorry, Apple fans. 

The folding phones we do have come in two main varieties: candy bar phones that open up to become larger, tablet-size foldable devices (like the Galaxy Z Fold 4) or candy bar phones that fold in half to become smaller and more pocketable (like the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Moto Razr 2022). Because of the still recent technology, all foldables are more expensive than their regular smartphone equivalents. But if you’re looking to turn heads when you whip out your foldable display and bend your phone in half, they’re worth investigating. 

Here, then, are our picks for the best foldable phones available to buy now.

Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 5 phone

The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is an incremental improvement that further refines Samsung’s large-screened foldable. If you’re looking for a phone that can double as a tablet for viewing work-related documents, running multiple apps on screen at once or watching movies, the Z Fold 5 is our top choice. The Pixel Fold may have better cameras, but the Z Fold 5’s bright screen makes Samsung’s phone better at its intended purpose: providing a big display that fits in your pocket.

Google got a lot of things right with its first attempt at building a folding phone. The large outer screen is great for using when closed and its slim design means it doesn’t bulk out your pockets too much. It closes totally flat, too, which makes it very usable as a regular phone when snapped shut, while still letting you take advantage of the 7.6-inch internal screen when you need it.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5 is the biggest leap forward that Samsug’s flip phone has seen in years. Samsung has significantly expanded the size of the cover screen located on the outside of the device, meaning you can look up directions, take photos and send messages without opening the phone. It’s this combined with the Z Flip’s solid battery life and sturdy design that makes it a top pick.

The Motorola Razr Plus raised the bar for what a flip phone should be in 2023. Its 3.6-inch cover screen allows you to use almost any app without opening the phone, plus battery life is long enough to get you through a busy day. It’s also thinner than the Galaxy Z Flip 5, which could make it the ideal choice for those who prioritize portability in a phone.

The Oppo Find N2 Flip’s standout feature is its massive outer display, which at 3.26 inches, dwarfs the cover screens on both the Galaxy Z Flip 4 or Moto Razr. It gives loads of room to properly see incoming notifications or other information, meaning you don’t need to unfold your phone every time you want to check something.
