Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 undergoes scratch, burn, and bend testing last month

Samsung’s new big foldable, the Galaxy Z Fold4, was put through the ordeal of JerryRigEverything’s ‘durability test’ at the end of last month, and survived to tell the tale – although it didn’t exactly leave in tip-top shape.Now it’s the turn of its little brother, the Galaxy Z Flip 4, to face the same tough test. Let’s see if the smaller device is more fragile.

The Flip4’s outer screen is covered by glass as you’d expect, which means it scratches at level 6 on the Mohs hardness scale, with deeper scratches showing up at level 7. In contrast, the inner display – or rather, the screen protector on top of it – is scratched at level 2, with deeper notches at level 3. This means fingernails can actually damage that surface.

The sides of the phone are made from aluminum, while the buttons are metal, as is the SIM card tray. As with the Fold4, we saw the phone subjected to a lot of dirt, tested the hinge – and it all came out fine. The inner screen protector melts when subjected to an open flame – since it is plastic after all.

Finally, the Flip4 bends back quite a bit, and not without the odd popping noise it makes, but remains functional without issue. However, after all that abuse, it doesn’t stop completely. The purpose of this test was to find out how durable a foldable device is these days and hopefully it provides a useful answer if you’re wondering about it.
