Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is the new clamshell in the market which comes with improved hinge along with other changes.
But how tough is the new hinge when it comes to real world use. Youtuber Mrkeybrd has an answer for you.
YouTube channel named Mrkeybrd conducted a test that lasted more than a week to find out Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Moto Razr+ durability.
Moto Razr+ first shows sign of tear 43800 folds and completely died after 126300 folds. The Galaxy Z Flip however was going perfectly fine without any issues.
But we knew the test will come to an end at some point. Galaxy Z Flip 5 shows first defect on hinge at around 223,000 folds.
Galaxy Z Flip 5 was usable until 400,000 folds. The YouTuber later conducted different series of test like submerging it in water, covering it with wheat flour and eggs.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 became unusable after 401156 folds. There was also a pink line on the right side of the display.
So the Galaxy Flip 5 lasted more than double times of fold than its competitor Motorola Razr+.
