While not exactly a phone for the camera buffs. The Galaxy Z Flip still performs reasonably well. The DxOMark score suggests a decent overall performance with accurate exposure levels.

While noise was dealt with nicely to produce good textures, the autofocus on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was also found to be consistently accurate. Although it was slower than other phones. The color rendering on the device was rated well but it fell in saturation levels at times with outdoor pictures.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip’s ultrawide angle sensor performs as well as other flagship phones. However, the bokeh performance of the smartphone was rated poorly in comparison. The smartphone did well with flash portraits when in low-light settings. Another element where the phone shined were the details captured on low-light cityscapes, which were comparable to those on the iPhone 11 Pro Max. However, the night-time cityscapes did not do well overall.

In terms of video, footage from the Galaxy Z Flip had good colors and the correct amount of exposure levels. The autofocus and stabilization too were consistently effective. However, the poor dynamic range was found in clips. Low-light footage also saw strong chroma noise. All things considered, the overall camera and video performance of the Galaxy Z Flip is good enough for most people, but nothing special and not comparable to other popular flagships.
