Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 vs OPPO Find N2 Flip
The OPPO Find N2 Flip launched globally quite recently. It arrived as a direct competitor to Samsung’s clamshell foldable. That’s why we’ll compare the two phones here, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 vs OPPO Find N2 Flip. Both of these phones are quite compelling in their own right, but are also different in a number of ways. We’re here to show you those differences, and hopefully help you make a purchasing decision.
We’ll first list the spec sheets of both phones, and will then move to compare them across a number of different categories. We’ll compare their designs, displays, performance, battery life, cameras, and audio performance. There’s plenty to talk about here, so, let’s get this show on the road, shall we?

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 vs OPPO Find N2 Flip: Design
Both of these phones are clamshell foldables, and both fold right down the middle. In my OPPO Find N2 Flip review, I emphasized the build OPPO delivered, for a good reason. The phone feels very premium, and it folds flat, without a gap, unlike the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Its crease is also quite minimal, and barely noticeable, which is not something I can say for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. On top of that, the OPPO Find N2 Flip has a more prominent cover display.
All that makes the phone look and feel more premium than the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Don’t get me wrong, though, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 still feels great to use, and like a quality product. I just hope Samsung will figure out a way to make the next model gapless, and to also get that crease under control. Both phones feature flat sides, and two cameras on the back. Both feature a frame made out of metal, and actually have a similar feeling in the hand when unfolded. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 has Gorilla Glass Victus+ on the back, while we’re not sure about the Find N2 Flip.
They’re about the same height, but the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is considerably more narrow. It’s also a bit thicker in both folded and unfolded states. Well, at its thinnest point (when folded), it’s about the same thickness as the Find N2 Flip, but at its thickest, it’s noticeably thicker. They also have a similar weight. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 weighs 187 grams, compared to 191 grams of the OPPO Find N2 Flip.
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 offers IPX8 water resistance, while the OPPO Find N2 Flip includes an IPX4 rating. Neither device is particularly grippy, so you may consider using a case.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 vs OPPO Find N2 Flip: Display
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 features a 6.7-inch fullHD+ (2640 x 1080) main foldable display. That’s a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. It supports HDR10+ content, and gets up to 1,200 nits of brightness at its peak. The phone’s cover display measures 1.9 inches, and Samsung used a Super AMOLED panel here. It has a resolution of 260 x 512, and it’s protected by the Gorilla Glass Victus+.
The OPPO Find N2 Flip, on the other hand, features a 6.8-inch fullHD+ (2520 x 1080) Foldable LTPO AMOLED main panel. It also has a 120Hz display, and it supports HDR10+ content. It can reach a peak brightness of 1,600 nits. This phone’s cover display measures 3.26 inches, it’s a lot larger than the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s cover panel. It is an AMOLED panel protected by the Gorilla Glass 5. It has a resolution of 720 x 382 pixels, and gets up to 900 nits at peak brightness.
The main displays on both phones are great. They’re vivid, have good viewing angles, and don’t feel plasticky, as they do on some other foldable phones. They’re more than sharp enough, and the high refresh rate helps them feel premium too. The blacks are deep, and chances are you’ll be happy with either display. Do note that the Find N2 Flip does get a bit brighter, though. The touch response is also good on both. The cover displays are also good on both phones, though they feel entirely different to use. Both displays are quite limited in terms of functionality, though, at least at the moment. They are sharp enough, and quite vivid too.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 vs OPPO Find N2 Flip: Performance
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is fueled by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. Samsung also included 8GB of RAM here, along with UFS 3.1 flash storage. The OPPO Find N2 Flip, on the other hand, is fueled by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ SoC. The device comes in variants with up to 16GB of RAM, and also includes UFS 3.1 flash storage. Neither phone offers storage expansion, by the way.
The performance is great on both devices. They do have different chips, but both are 4nm processors, and both offer excellent performance, despite the fact they’re not the latest offerings from their respective companies. Even during heavy load, while you’re running a graphically intensive game, these two phones don’t slow down. They do great in regular, everyday tasks too, so there’s nothing to worry about in that department. In fact, it was difficult to get them to stutter at all, which only shows how good those chips are, and the same goes for software optimization. You should not worry about the performance on either phone.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 vs OPPO Find N2 Flip: Battery
Samsung packed in a 3,700mAh battery inside the Galaxy Z Flip 4. OPPO uses a 4,300mAh battery pack inside the Find N2 Flip. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 does have a smaller outer display, and the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is excellent when it comes to power consumption. The two phones were quite similar in terms of battery life during our testing. We were able to push both phones to 7 hours of screen-on-time, and even a bit over that point at times. That’s not bad, but it’s not outstanding either.
Do note that we didn’t really play a lot of games, other than when we tested the performance of both phones. So, if you’re a gamer, count on worse battery life, in both cases. Also, your mileage may vary in general, of course. We use our phones in different ways, with different apps, and with different signal strengths. The good news is, neither phone offer bad battery life, generally speaking.
When it comes to charging, the OPPO Find N2 Flip is faster, but the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is more versatile. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 supports 25W wired, 15W wireless, and 4.5W reverse wireless charging. The OPPO Find N2 Flip comes with support for 44W wired charging, and also reverse wired charging. Do note that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 does not include a charger in the box, though, unlike the OPPO Find N2 Flip.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 vs OPPO Find N2 Flip: Cameras
Both of these phones have two cameras on the back. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 includes a 12-megapixel wide, and a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera. The OPPO Find N2 Flip has a 50-megapixel main camera, and an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 tends to provide more saturated images in general, while the OPPO Find N2 Flip emphasizes specific colors quite a bit.
Hasselblad’s color tuning comes into play with the OPPO Find N2 Flip, and that is especially nice to see in low light shots. They look quite dramatic, which is a nice look. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 also does really well in low light, though it tends to brighten up shots a bit more. Both phones do a good job overall, and handle HDR situations well. Images from both phones do look a bit processed, which is something many people will prefer.
Their ultrawide cameras are not as impressive as the main units. If we had to choose one of the two, though, we’d go with the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s. The OPPO Find N2 Flip’s ultrawide camera tends to fall apart in low light, as the images end up looking soft, and often lack detail. Overall, both phones do a good job in the camera department, though.
There is a set of stereo speakers on both phones. Those speakers do sound good in both cases. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 does provide a slightly higher audio loudness, while it’s also supposed to be a bit sharper, though the difference is not that noticeable. The bass is a bit more noticeable, though.
What you will not find on either phone is an audio jack. Both phones do include a Type-C port, which you can use for wired audio connections. If you prefer to go wireless, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 offers Bluetooth 5.2, while the OPPO Find N2 Flip has Bluetooth 5.3 support.
