Cell phones are addictive by design, but sometimes you just want to check an email without getting sucked into apps. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5’s key feature, its Flex Window, fixes that. The flip phone has a 3.4-in. external screen, next to its back-facing lenses, that allows you to dip into important notifications without being lured in. The Flex Window is also customizable: Peter Park, senior manager for product in Samsung’s smartphone division, has Spider-Man wallpaper on his. (“You know, with my name and whatnot,” he says.) Flip it open for a full 6.7-in. display.
