Famous video blogger Zach Nelson with the nickname JerryRigEverything, who is mocked on smartphones, has posted a video showing a test of the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 foldable phone.
The video shows a folding phone in a box, which when opened, is revealed to be a phone. The box is opened to reveal a normal phone, and the phone is unfolded. The video was posted today on Twitter and has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times. Nelson is known for his videos testing the strength of devices and parts.
In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 hasn’t changed from its predecessor. On the external display, the Gorilla Glass Victus has been replaced by the Victus Plus. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 smartphone is waterproof and meets IPX8 protection, and the internal display is still protected by a plastic film.

The main difference, however, is the new hinge. It’s a part that has been redesigned to allow for easier opening and closing of the phone, and the foldable design means you can rest assured that your phone is protected.
Gorilla Glass Victus Plus did not add scratch resistance, as the external display still scratches at level 6 (on the Mohs hardness scale) and the deeper grooves remain at level 7. Meanwhile, the protective cover of the internal screen is quite soft, so Samsung warns that even fingernails can leave indelible marks. Both displays showed burn marks from a lighter and a scratch.
Large sand was poured into the smartphone on both sides of the hinge, but it did not interfere with the device.

As a result, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 passed a bend test not only when folded, but also when disassembled, which makes it particularly fragile.
