In all three cases, you’re getting a bigger and heavier phone with a larger screen. On the other hand, you’re losing the headphone jack. You’re also getting more cameras, faster processors, and more RAM. To keep up with all that, the batteries are also bigger. If that doesn’t excite you, there’s always the Galaxy Z Flip.
