One of the most significant advantages of Samsung’s flip smartphones is that they give you the ability to work in multi-screen mode, so you can cover all your needs with a single device. Here is how you could set your Z Flip 4 into Flex Mode.
To enter Flex mode, make sure you have the orientation lock turned off (check for the lock icon in the notification / quick settings shade), then open an app and fold the phone screen halfway like a laptop or a makeup compact. You could also set the apps to appear side by side too. If the app supports it, you’ll see the content move to the top screen, and — usually — a set of controls appear at the bottom
This varies by app; also, not every app that supports Flex mode on the Fold is supported on the Flip. Here’s a list of apps that support Flex mode by default on the Z Fold 4:
- Google Duo
- Samsung Free
- Samsung Health
- Samsung TV Plus
Starting with the Fold 4 and Flip 4, you’ll see a fifth option: the touchpad. Tap this icon and you’ll get a PC-style touchpad and a cursor that moves around the top half of the screen. The touchpad controls are just as you’d expect: pinch to zoom, use two fingers to scroll, and tap to click on something. It’s a clever way to take advantage of your phone’s unique ability to sit up all on its own.
