Employees of the CNET publication tested the strength of the folding display of the flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy Fold.
It turned out that the modified screen of the device really became tougher: the smartphone refused to continue working after 120 169 bends of the display. Although Samsung promises a resource of over 200 thousand iterations.
Browsers further noted that this is a relatively small margin, given the high price tag of the smartphone. In addition, they were unsatisfied with the autonomy of the new items. The gadget worked on a single charge for an average of 12 hours and 15 minutes in their cyclic test. In comparison, Samusng Galaxy Note 10 Plus in this test is more than 21 hours.
Earlier, TechCrunch employee Brian Heather, who received the device before the official release, announced that it would break just after 27 hours of use according to all requirements.
Despite significant problems when trying to release the smartphone in the spring of this year, the first updated batch of Galaxy Fold was sold out on the first day of the start of sales. The release in Russia will take place on October 25 of this year at a price of 159 990 rubles. In the kit, buyers will receive a Kevlar case, Galaxy Buds wireless headphones and Samsung Care + certificate, which will allow you to replace the smartphone display for 9500 rubles if necessary.
