Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 survives durability tests

Earlier this month, Samsung unveiled the fourth generation of Galaxy Fold and Flip smartphones. The Galaxy Fold 4 came with a primary 7.6-inch QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED display and a cover display with another 6.2-inch HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X Display. Both displays offer adaptive refresh rates ranging from 48-120Hz. Samsung has included support for Gorilla Glass Victus Plus and IPX8 for protection. The display also gets protection from the plastic cover. Popular YouTuber Jerry Rig, known as JerryRigEverything, has tested the durability of the Galaxy Fold 4.

The external display starts scratching at level 6 (of Moh’s hardness scale) with deeper grooves at level 7. It tells us that Gorilla Glass Victus Plus doesn’t possess any scratch-resistant properties over the standard Victus. In contrast, the cover display will start scratching at level 2. It means that you have to be very cautious while using the same. The cover display can also have permanent marks of fingernails if you press it hard. Both displays have permanent burn marks after lighting them using a lighter.

The Razor blade also scratches the various part of Galaxy Fold 4. The hinge was dusted with gravel on both sides. The hinge survived despite multiple attempts of folding & opening. It’s tough to bend the smartphone once it is folded. Once it is opened, it can be bend, but only small cracks can be heard. That’s it, and the Galaxy Fold 4.
