After a very long hiatus, flip phones are making a surprise comeback. Ah, the good old days of the humble and not so smart phone.
Nowadays, are phones are a lot more nifty and boast features such as numerous cameras, hardworking micro chips and bigger screens so we can deal with all of our day to day tasks.
With the arrival of Samsung's highly anticipated Galaxy Z Flip phone, we decided to scour the net for the best deals on similar models. You might think that flip phones have a slightly outdated look, but many of them have morphed into modern-looking folding and bending phones, like Samsung's earlier Galaxy Fold.
The newer picks even have 5G technology among some of the desirable features, which is well worth looking into if you like your internet fast.
We've included outright deals, but if you're looking for a monthly contract here are some of the best places worth shopping around on:

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is quite different to the predecessor the Galaxy Fold. It folds uniquely down the middle like a clam shell; stylish and innovative – we like it.
You're also able to open the phone from different angles, which might seem strange at first but super convenient once you're comfortable. You can also take hands free photos and videos, which is great if you're into photography and vlogging.
