Here’s what occurred when I used the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 to substitute a laptop

My task was simple: use the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 as a laptop on a short domestic flight. In this case, I was flying three-and-a-half hours from Houston to New York for a work trip. Instead of taking out my Microsoft Surface, I would set up a Z Fold 3 on a tablet stand and use the iClever BK08, a squat foldable Bluetooth keyboard, as my primary input tool. The experience was surprisingly usable, even if Android still has some hiccups with mouse support.

Squeezed in the window seat of a Southwest Airlines flight, I had a revelatory moment with my Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. While the person next to me had conked out, I was typing away, writing an article about why 49-inch ultrawide monitors transformed how I work. The irony of writing about monitors that are almost four feet wide on a display that’s merely 7.6 inches diagonally was not lost on me. Still, during a recent flight with the Z Fold 3 as my primary device, I couldn’t get over how far technology had come.

While the plan was to use the Z Fold 3 to accomplish all my editing duties, Southwest Airlines’ abysmal Wi-Fi made doing anything almost impossible. Even loading Slack messages was maddeningly futile. Instead, I opted to open Microsoft Word and type our the opinion piece linked above.

The typing experience on Word for mobile running on my Z Fold 3 was fine — not as robust as the desktop version would be, but that was to be expected. Using the iClever BK08’s trackpad worked like any other mouse on a laptop. The cursor appeared just as I would expect.
