A durability test on Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 has been performed by popular YouTube channel, JerryRigEverything.
The test carries multiple rounds to rigorously examine how durable the next foldable phone from the South Korean company is.
These rounds show not just how resistive Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is from regular scratches but also how better its hinge mechanism is and how well it handles dust over last year’s Galaxy Z Fold 2.
Samsung claims that the folding display of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is 80 percent more durable than that of the previous model.
There is also an Armor Aluminum chassis available this time that can bring a stronger build quality over the Galaxy Z Fold 2.Over 11-and-a-half minutes long, the JerryRigEverything video begins with a scratch test of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.
The narrator, Zack Nelson, shows that the cover display of the phone starts getting scratches at hardness level six of the Mohs scale and some deep grooves are visible at level seven.
This is similar to how other flagship phones including iPhone 12 Pro and OnePlus 9 Pro are prone to scratches.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3, however, has a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection on top of the cover display.
After unfolding the phone, Nelson demonstrates that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 starts receiving scratches at the level two of Mohs scale and some deeper ones appear at level three. He also mentions that his fingernail was also able to leave noticeable marks on the surface.
