Samsung is trying to prove the durability of its foldable phones

Samsung is sharing new details about how it tested the durability of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. However, it's not clear exactly why the company is sharing this information now, especially given the launch of both phones in August.

The South Korean giant appears to be trying to allay concerns over recent reports of cracks in the Galaxy Z Flip 3's screen.

In a video posted on its website, the company showed off four independent tests. A test showed that the phone is in an ambient room. Samsung tests phones in a variety of weather conditions to make sure they still work.

Another test showed that the phone fell into the water. In the third test, the company used a robotic arm to test the performance of the S Pen on the Galaxy Z Fold 3. In the fourth test, two phones were locked and unlocked repeatedly.

The company said, “We have spent years doing thousands of experiments, taking different opinions, and developing a new method. Our highest sustainability standards to date.

Climate chamber tests can ensure that functions such as video playback and components such as cameras operate normally under different weather conditions, from dry to humid and hot to cold.

It was also tested in various folding modes (including flexible mode), and the water resistance test proved the high quality of the first waterproof foldable smartphone.

Using the S Pen for personality testing, the company has ensured the digitizer performs under the foldable display, including its foldable position.

In order for the new foldable device to live up to its name, Galaxy Z series devices have undergone rigorous folding tests and withstand more than 200,000 opening and closing operations - if closed and opened 100 times a day, they can be used for about five years becoming years.

The stretch fold test mirrors real user models in real scenarios, such as two-handed folding and unfolding.

The company has offered such tests in the past. For example, a video from 2012 showed a robot sitting on a mobile phone to test its durability.

Samsung has revised some of the tests used

It should be noted that Samsung isn't the only company doing this, as Apple detailed its own cell phone antenna test in response to the iPhone 4 door antenna scandal and provided a lab test for the iPhone after the iPhone 4 Biege door antenna scandal.

The new Samsung review did not address the Galaxy Z Flip 3 screen cracks issue. More and more reports are indicating cracks appearing in the center of the screen around the hinge of the phone.

9to5Google mentioned my own experience with the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The editor said: I wanted to use the Galaxy Z Flip 3 test unit which I haven't used for a few days, but was shocked that the very thin glass broke.

"I haven't dropped my phone in the past few days (a few weeks ago)," he added. I did not expose it to extreme heat or cold. I haven't touched him for several days. So the broken glass was a real shock to me.

A Reddit user asked a similar question less than three days after owning a mobile phone. Another person said that his phone screen shattered within 24 hours.

One of the biggest questions about Samsung's foldable devices has always been their durability. Especially after the delay in the release of the original Galaxy Fold due to a screen glitch in the review unit.

The problem of the vulnerabilities indicates that the company may still have problems to solve. This is to ensure that his foldable phone will not be damaged in the long run.
