Galaxy Z Fold 3 durability test tries to verify Samsung’s claims

Foldable devices are fancy, novel, and futuristic, but their price and fragility will always make people think quite twice about investing in them. Samsung tried to deal with the previous with the surprisingly low price of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and assures the general public that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is tougher than ever before. But, of course, there are no better thanks to testing that boast than with the triple death threat of JerryRigEverything’s durability tests.

The biggest durability concern with foldable devices, both innies, and outies, will always be the foldable screen itself. Samsung says that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 display is 80% stronger than before, but this will be true only to some extent. The Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) screen protector remains a plastic material, which does not match even the softest Mohs pick. Users are still advised to avoid using their fingernails, but, fortunately, the S Pen is confirmed to pose no threat to its outermost layer.

This year, Samsung also boasts about the IPX8 rating of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, a primary for any foldable phone. But, ironically, YouTuber Zach Nelson doesn’t even test that excellent water resistance rating and goes for the normal dust and sand torture. the great news is that, even with an “X”, the foldable device didn’t immediately die from an “accidental” shower of sand.

Last is the bend test, which might seem horrifying for a $1,800 device. Fortunately, Samsung has learned its lesson, and, a bit like the Galaxy Z Fold 2, this year’s larger foldable phone is as strong as the other smartphone within the market today.

That said, a brief durability test won’t be ready to say how the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will fare after months of use. Its only assurance is that this expensive investment won’t immediately die out on users, even after a couple of heart-stopping mishaps.
