While foldable phones have yet to become mainstream, I’ll share some fun ways to use the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Thanks to their sturdy hinges and One UI 3.1 software, you can do some tasks that you never could before with single panel phones. So without beating around the bush too much, here are three ways to utilize the Flex Mode on the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
Use it as a ‘tripod’ to take photos
If you don’t have a tripod stand at home, don’t worry – you can totally use the Galaxy Z Fold 2 Flex Mode as a ‘standalone stand’. Don’t believe me? All you have to do is just fold the phone halfway and place it on top of a surface then you’re good to go!
Of course, please be careful with the rough surfaces, as they can potentially scratch the phone. We recommend equipping the Galaxy Z Fold 2 with a protective casing at all times.
Besides taking pictures, you can also take advantage of some of the other camera features on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in Flex mode.
Like taking a video, you could place the phones on any surface and start recording the sunset or starry night sky. On top of that, you can fold them halfway and vlog yourself hands-free.
Video conferencing on-the-go
Video conferencing is already a norm, so there’s always that occasional online meeting with your colleagues. If you’re still working from home and want to stay away from your computer for a while, just take the Galaxy Z Fold 2 with you and place it on the table.
You should be able to find most video meeting apps on Google Play Store, regardless of whether you’re using Zoom, Google Duo, or Cisco Webex. Just download it so you can have convenient conference calls anytime and anywhere.
Watch YouTube videos like a boss
Last but not least, if you watch a lot of YouTube videos – you’re gonna love Smart Pop-Up View. On the Galaxy Z Fold 2, go to the settings and search for Smart Pop-Up View (use the search function for faster access) and tick on the YouTube app.
After that, use the split-screen function by pulling out the YouTube app (or whichever app you like) from a hidden sidebar on the right side, and voila! Now you get to chill on the couch and enjoy multitasking!
We are sure you all love these three ways to utilize the Galaxy Z Fold 2 so that you can enhance your productivity as well as video viewing experience in the best way possible.
