The Galaxy Z Fold 3 has a 4400mAh battery, which Samsung says should last “all day” (but did not give an estimate in terms of hours) but is less than the 5000mAH battery that’s found in the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra (£1,329, Samsung.com).
“Based on our research, we know our customers wanted an enhanced main screen experience, and a slimmer body for portability. Therefore, we made the decision to optimize the battery size in order to prioritise the device structure”, Samsung told The Independent.
The battery in the Z Fold 3 lasted most of the day but usually required a boost towards the evening. It’s hard to say, however, whether this would be the same when it was not under a testing environment
When reviewing the device, we used it much more than we would normally, as we were trying out multiple strange combinations of apps, streaming video more often, and running high-intensity programs. So, it is likely that the battery drained much faster than it would under general use.
That said, it’s also possible there’s a psychological element: opening the phone to reply to a quick text, using the large screen because it’s a novelty and because the phone encourages you to do so. Either way there’s enough juice in this foldable device that one shouldn’t be too concerned with high-intensity use, but will want to ensure they start every day with a full battery just in case.

With this much smart specifications, it is obvious about battery timings. So I am not shocked.
