Samsung's Galaxy Fold is a fragile device due to its display, but Samsung prides itself on hinge power. The company claims that it will take 200,000 folds before the hinge breaks. How long will it really take? Let's watch the robot repeatedly fold the Galaxy of the Fold until it dies in real time.
The Nomad Case for Pixel 3
CNET is testing the Galaxy Fold torture test in real time using a robot called "FoldBot" built by SquareTrade. The robot quickly turns the phone over and over again – 150 times a minute – to see how durable it is.
Samsung claims that the Fold Gallery will last about five years with 200,000 folds, but the SquareTrade test was less than encouraging . After 10,000 folds, SquareTrade found no damage, but after about 18,000 folds there was slight damage to the display. After hitting 40,000 folds, the device did not work properly with the touch screen, but recovered after charging overnight. After 120,000 folds, the hinge function began to deteriorate.
Of course, the high speed of this machine is probably significantly accelerating hinge and display problems. After all, it is not possible for a person to quickly open and close a device.
But it should still be interesting to see how the Gallery will fit into this test. You can post below on YouTube. At the time of writing, we have just passed 12,000 times. How long do you think it will take?
Update 10/4: Until he was out of the stream for whatever reason, the Fall Gallery was killed here about 120,000 times. As with the SquareTrade test, the hinge of the device began to deteriorate and half of the internal folding display stopped working. As noted earlier, however, this test greatly exaggerates how the average man uses his Galaxy Fold.
119,380 folds, we lost half the screen, and the hinge has a lot of fun. Keep looking here: https://t.co/VupObDxttw pic.twitter.com/Z627VRfpWR
