What would you expect from a device worth €2,000? I would expect reliability at one of the many aspects that the device must have. So, this time, Samsung decided to showcase how exactly it tests €2,000 Samsung Galaxy Fold in a 35-second video which is mesmerizing to look at.
Back during SDC 2018, Samsung showcased the very first prototype of the device trapped in a thick case. Fast forward to Unpacked event on February 20, Samsung finally unveiled the device to the public along with Samsung Galaxy S10 series, however, the foldable phone is yet to make to the markets. Even before its presumed pre-order date releases, Samsung Galaxy Fold found itself amidst a tonne of controversies over the crease seen on the folding phone.
Although this video released by Samsung doesn’t provide any input on whether the display will develop crease or not, it does stand strong when it comes to its folding mechanism. The stress test performed over a duration of a week reveals that hinges fitted with Galaxy Fold can sustain at least 200,000 folds before breaking off. To put things into perspective, you can fold and unfold your Galaxy Fold 100 times a day for five years before it could actually come off due to wear and tear.
Perhaps, it will be dubious that one would hold onto the same device for five years and here, the conclusion is that Galaxy Fold is reliable and durable when it comes to numerous folds and unfolds over a long duration of time.
Talking about the display crease issue, GSMArena pointed out that if the user tweaks display brightness over 70%, the crease becomes invisible until you don’t pierce your eyeballs hard enough to look for the crease.
According to a source, Samsung UK will start taking in pre-orders from April 26 while the device will be available for sales on May 3 at least in the U.K. followed by other markets around the globe.
