To get this deal, you will need a trade-in as Samsung is offering up to $750 in instant trade-in credit.

It’s thinner and lighter than ever with a silent, high-quality and durable hinge. Moreover, you get an IPX8 resistant and durable chassis, a fun, social-media-friendly camera, and the large foldout display that’s perfect for multi-tasking, games, and watching media.

Save 25% on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 for Memorial Day

While the foldable phone market has been booming in the last couple of years with entries like the OnePlus Open and the Motorola Razr, Samsung still remains the top dog when it comes to foldable phones. That means if you want the best of the best, you're going to want to go for a Galaxy Z Fold 5, which easily outperforms pretty much any other foldable phone. Of course, being a high-end phone, it does get pretty expensive, which is why this early Memorial Day deal from Amazon that brings it down to $1,350 from $1,800 is worth snatching up quickly.

Why you should buy the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5
What's interesting about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is that it's not actually a massive upgrade from the previous Galaxy Z Fold 4, at least not in the way that most flagship phones tend to be when the new generation comes in. As such, its new features may not look as great to those who have the Fold 4, but for those who are coming in fresh into the foldable world, it really knocks everything out of the park. For example, it has become a lot thinner than previous iterations, making it a lot easier to carry in your pocket without feeling like you're carrying a literal brick, and on top of that, the hinges have been improved to be even more quiet and long-lasting.
