The Galaxy Z Flip 5 is Samsung’s latest addition to its line of foldable clamshell smartphones. Considering its design, its flexible interior screen and the moving parts of the hinge, you might think that it is fragile. But the torture test of JerryRigEverything indicates the opposite.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 stands up to different tests
As he did with his predecessors, JerryRigEverything put the Galaxy Z Flip 5 through a pretty brutal torture test. The phone took the usual beating from his razor blades and lighter. It was also subjected to a sand test and a brutal backward bending. However, all this doesn’t seem to have been enough to break the phone.
At the end of the test, despite a few visible scratches, the main screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 remained perfectly functional, the hinge did not crack and the smartphone did not shatter despite the YouTuber’s iron hands.
This demonstrates the improvements made by Samsung in terms of the resistance of its foldable smartphones, which are often criticized for their fragile appearance. The Korean giant has shown that it is possible to combine flexibility and durability in this type of device which is starting to become more popular.
