At the beginning of the development of foldable smartphones, there were many shortcomings. One of the main shortcomings was the appearance of crease as well as durability issues. Of course, when we talk about durability, one aspect is how many folds the screen can withstand. After a few generations, it looks like Samsung is ticking the right boxes now. According to the South Korean manufacturing giant, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 foldable smartphone can withstand up to 200,000 folds. This means that if you fold and unfold this device 100 times a day, it will take almost 5.5 years to reach its limit.
Recently, the results of a vigorous folding test on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 have been released. After six days of testing, the phone was also covered in dust and dirt and submerged in water. The smartphone went through 352,000 bends before any flaws were noticed on the screen. The very first flaw is that the hinge had some tolerance, more than normal. If we pass 100 times every day, this smartphone will last almost 10 years. At this point, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 occasionally malfunctioned.

Finally, after Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 was folded 418,503 times, it could not maintain normal opening and closing. It turns out that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 is conservative in its lifespan. In fact, the company seems to underestimate the durability of the foldable smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 was released on August 11, 2021. It is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 mobile platform. The external screen size is 1.9 inches while the internal screen size reaches 6.7 inches . At the same time, the screen supports multi-angle hover. According to reports, its successor, the Galaxy Z Flip4 will officially arrive in August. The battery capacity will be slightly improved compared to the previous generation.
