Foldable devices are becoming more durable with each iteration, with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 being a perfect example. The Galaxy Fold series may have begun with a shaky foundation due to many durability concerns, but the Z Fold 3 radically alters the game.
This was shown in YouTuber JerryRigEverything’s most recent endurance test, in which he subjected the Z Fold 3 to a torture test. The phone’s main screen is still plastic, which is cheaper than typical glass displays on smartphones but required for flexibility. However, it is now covered by Gorilla Glass Victus for further security.
The redesigned primary screen now works with an S Pen, so it’s reasonable to assume it’s more durable than before, albeit it can still be damaged by your fingernails.
However, because the outside screen is simply glass, it scratches at the typical level 6, with deeper marks at level 7.
The redesigned hinge prevents dust and debris from entering, which is a significant improvement over prior versions. This not only extends the phone’s overall life but also allows you to carry it anyplace. The phone is also splashed and water-resistant, thanks to Samsung’s efforts.
Furthermore, when twisted in any direction without bending even slightly, the phone retains its form like a brick.
As a result, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is proof that foldable tablets will soon be feasible as everyday use devices.
