I was wondering if getting a flip phone would be good to get, I have seen people with them and they look amazing I mainly like the flipping feature as it is nostalgic but modern.
I would like to know any pros or cons people have had from getting this phone.

The down side is the screen as the hinge can easy go or the screen protector would peel off. Do plenty reviews before you decide if they are for you.

Whatever you choose, once you turn to the flip side, there is no going back to slabs.

A few points  I would like to make:

The Form factor/compactness of Flip phones  and Flex Mode/multitasking capabilities are one of the selling points. see a bit more in this video:

  However there can be durability concerns  and potential battery life limitations are a consideration,  the specifications do not quite match up to the S Devices in my view.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

I agree with that, once you find a phone that is unique there no way to go back to basic.

I have seen the screen protector peeling off and the hinge can get looser over but If I take care of it, I'm sure it will last.

I moved from a slab phone to the Samsung Fold³ phone, and loved what it brought to the table. 

However I traded that in and moved to the Samsung Galaxy s²³ Ultra and s²⁴ Ultra,  so in my case moving back to a slab phone wasn't an issue 🤔😉

Definitely have some hands on experience at a Samsung Experience Store or Highstreet Network Store @amxxat 

Enjoy the journey ️

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

I had a z-flip 3 and the battery swelled up and ruined the phone so had to buy new phone.  got z-flip 4 and what I thought was a good case.  Case did not well protect the hinge and hitting on the hinge destroyed the phone.  Just received refurb phone also Z flip 4 and got a new case with hinge protection.  I like my phone but I would recommend a case that has a hard protective area over the hinge.
