It brought under control one of the famous YouTube channels – specialized in Durability tests – Telephone Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has been folded for a number of tests, such as: burning and bending, as well as scratching with sharp tools.
JerryRigEverything – known as one of the most “extreme” channels in durability tests – praised the phone’s durability at least compared to the first-generation Galaxy Fold, which tested its durability last year.
JerryRigEverything started the video by opening the device box and then pointing to the differences between the Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Fold 2 phones, such as: adding the large external screen, and a dust-resistant hinge. Then the channel reviewed Samsung warnings to keep the phone intact.
Then the test began by scratching the external screen, which was able to withstand up to the sixth level of intentional scratching with a sharp metal tool, but at the seventh level, scratches began to appear clearly on the screen, and the internal folding screen was not that durable, as the scratches appeared in the third level Even pressing it with a nail may affect it.
And because the phone comes with hinges in the middle, where there is a gap that allows the screen to fold, the channel put some dirt on the screen and then folded it, and after shaking a little, the phone succeeded in preventing dust from entering the joint, which is praised by the channel.
And because the frame of the phone is made of aluminum with a layer, scratching it with a blade resulted in removing only the colored layer, while the back of the phone, which is also protected with a layer of Gorilla Glass, may bear the scratch using the blade.
And even though the glass is inclined; Unlike metal or plastic, to breakage, and the phone is originally foldable thanks to the joints, which may make some think that it is easy to break, but JerryRigEverything’s attempts to bend the device, failed, which is impressive.
As for the burn test, the (Galaxy Fold) phone was strong enough to withstand the deliberate burning of the screen, as the pixels recovered on the screen, leaving some trace after being exposed to the flame, both on the internal screen, although it is made of plastic, and external as well.
Samsung announced on August 5, during the Galaxy Unpacked event, its foldable smartphone Galaxy Z Fold 2, along with its two smartphones (Galaxy Note 20), (Galaxy Note 20 Ultra), and its two tablets (Galaxy Tab S7). And (Galaxy Tab S7 Plus).
