Foldables get a bad rep for being too fragile, which is understandable given the new form factor, soft inner screens and the moving parts in the hinge. However, they’ve come a long way and the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 can withstand a serious beating.
In the latest JerryRigEverything video, the vertical foldable undergoes a brutal torture test. Aside from the usual scratching and burning, the Z Flip5 had to go through sand and backward bending. Not only did the hinge survive all the dust that was sprinkled on it, but the inner screen was still fully functional even after spreading some sand onto it.
The bending test didn’t break the phone either. It didn’t even pop. A true testament to Samsung’s improvements in the area of durability over the years. Great news for Z Flip5 owners too – your phone can go through a lot and live to tell the story.
