The Samsung Galaxy Fold was a marvel of its time and has taken the mobile experience to unprecedented levels by introducing a new perspective on multi-tasking.
Now, its successor, the Z Fold2, wants to take the user experience even further with a user interface that’s inspired by the result of various surveys that Samsung conducted to gather consumer feedback on the Galaxy Fold.
Samsung has made improvements to the user interface of the Galaxy Z Fold2, with ease-of-use, functionality, and continuity at the core.
With the multi-window tray and edge panel integrated, users can just drag and drop apps from the edge panel to run it in their preferred layout – full screen, split-screen, or even a custom layout of up to three apps.

Depending on their preference, users can choose to use the standard smartphone layout or the tablet layout. Samsung apps and Google Apps are adaptive, which means they’re able to adjust and maximize the space of the table-like layout.
Collaboration with Microsoft
Samsung runs a foldable device task force team in collaboration with Microsoft to create a more continuous experience on PC and Microsoft products.
Galaxy Z Fold2 users can seamlessly copy information from their phone to a PC, and their frequently used apps can also be displayed on a PC screen, editing can be done with the keyboard and mouse.
Maximizing the Z Fold 2’s Design, Samsung also introduces the various ways to consume content and shoot photos on the new foldable.
The cover screen can also be used as a preview screen when taking a video.
