The Ultimate Durability Test: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 bend test

It's a scene we've all witnessed before. A new smartphone hits the market, followed by a relatively short interval before it undergoes the dreaded durability test. Once again, this familiar ritual unfolds. This time, the spotlight shines on 's latest offering, the Galaxy Z Fold5, a recently announced large-size foldable smartphone.

Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold5: Durability Test Unveils Tough Exterior

However, the story takes a turn with the internal screen. To facilitate its folding mechanism, a non-replaceable plastic protector permanently covers the screen. As expected, this plastic layer succumbs to scratches at level 2, with deeper furrows becoming evident at level 3. The device's frame and hinge are constructed from durable aluminum, while even the buttons feature a metallic composition.

Upon exposure to an open flame, the upper plastic layer of the internal screen liquefies after roughly 10 seconds. The external screen, benefiting from its glass composition, offers slightly more resistance. Regrettably, the fingerprint sensor's performance becomes inconsistent after sustaining scratches.

When subjected to a barrage of dust and grime, the phone remains unwavering. Even when bent while in the closed position, it remains impervious. Remarkably, the same applies when the device is opened and bent backward. This accomplishment stands out significantly, given the inherent folding mechanism of the phone. Notably, competitors like the Pixel Fold and the Razr 40 Ultra faltered in similar tests. The Galaxy Z Fold5, however, defies the odds, emerging triumphant and deserving of acclaim.

In conclusion, Samsung‘s Galaxy Z Fold5 emerges as a testament to both innovation and robust engineering. The phone‘s external screen, fortified by glass, exhibits commendable scratch resistance, while the internal screen navigates the delicate balance between flexibility and durability. The device's metal components contribute to its sturdiness, from the frame to the buttons. Moreover, the successful navigation through flame, scratches, and bending underscores its resilience, positioning it as a standout contender in the competitive world of foldable smartphones.
