Zack Nelson of the YouTuber channel “JerryRigEverything” conducted a durability test of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4. As a foldable phone, the Z Fold 4 seems less durable than a typical phone, but it turns out to be stronger than many phone models.
Z Fold4 should be “unbreakable”
JerryRigEverything’s phone durability tests typically involve bending and burning the device, but the Galaxy Z Fold4’s test went even further by throwing sand on the surface and hinges. Amazingly, the Galaxy Z Fold4 survived all the damage.
The Galaxy Z Fold4 is touted as “unbreakable” in the US, but Nelson did his best to disprove that claim in a roughly 10-minute video.
Is the device also dustproof?
Samsung touts the Galaxy Z Fold4’s water resistance, but didn’t test it for dust resistance.
In the video, Nelson tested the device’s dust resistance by covering it with sand, and the screen worked just fine. No matter how much I tried to squeeze sand between the hinges, it never got inside the device.
Resistant to both horizontal and mountain folds
Nelson continued to test folding the Galaxy Z Fold 4, but the result was that it could withstand horizontal folding with the device closed and mountain folds on the hinge.
“Galaxy Z Fold4 passed the resistance test,” Nelson said in praise of Samsung.
