After running the phone through several benchmarks, it is clear that the Z Fold4's Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, LPDDR4 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage perform with varied results. 

The flagship foldable performed impressively in processor and memory-related tasks while maintaining decent temperature management. Where the Z Fold4 struggled is the internal storage's sequential write speeds at just under 260MB/s.

Otherwise, the performance of the Z Fold4 is on par with what we expect from the latest technology.
