Tortured, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 admits nothing

Smartphones with foldable screens may seem fragile, but after several successive generations, Samsung no longer fears (almost) nothing.

Sensitive souls refrain. The video below shows a brand new Galaxy Z Flip 5 undergoing the worst torture, in the name of science.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, the ultimate test from the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, impossible to fold it the wrong way!!! !

Samsung's flip smartphone thus takes blows from a cutter, unnatural bends and even flames on the screen. Bottom line: the device is not immortal but still holds up surprisingly well on certain points. For example, it is impossible to break it by trying to force the fold in the wrong direction, and it continues to work even after an attempt to introduce fine particles.

Normally, it is covered with Gorilla Glass Victus 2, while the internal model is only Ultra-Thin Glass, folding requires.
