Resistance and durability tests

Like its predecessor, the Z Fold 3the Z Fold 4 held out until the end of the test. The smartphone was subjected to 4 tests.
The YouTuber begins at the level of the screens and the chassis by making scratches using metal points, a cutter and a fingernail. It seems that these parts have the same resistance as those of the Z Fold 3.
An apparently resistant smartphone
Afterwards, he pours a handful of dust on the interior screen and folds the smartphone. No grain has managed to penetrate the hinge. The device still works. Then comes the fire test where the inner screen is subjected to the flame of a lighter. After 10 seconds, a black trace appears and does not disappear. The outer screen was much tougher and lasted 16 seconds before leaving a mark. Finally, Zack performs the bend test. This test consists of strongly bending the device to see its degree of resistance to bending. Whether in folded or unfolded mode, the smartphone did not present any breaks or cracks.
An expensive price
the Galaxy Z Fold 4 seduced above all by the fact that it is a smartphone of 6.2 inches that can be transformed into a tablet of 7.6 inches.
