  • So Samsung ended up responding to the verge regarding my Galaxy Z Flip durability test

  • video. And it's interesting what they said.

  • They said, 'The Galaxy Z Flip features an infinity flex display with Samsung ultra thin

  • glass. This first of a kind UTG technology is different from other Galaxy flagship devices.

  • While the display does bend, it should be handled with care. Also, the Galaxy Z Flip

  • has a protective layer on top of the ultra thin glass, similar to the Galaxy Fold.'

  • That last sentence there telling us there is protection on top explains exactly what

  • we saw during the durability test. That protective layer was the layer that was getting damaged,

  • and the glass is, well, maybe underneath all that somewhere. I never back down from a good

  • challenge. It's time to find some glass. Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • With the bumpers off, I notice something that must have happened between the filming of

  • my last video and filming this video while the phone was sitting on my desk. Strange

  • cracks started appearing along that center line of the hinge. And they appear to be below

  • the surface of this protective layer. My phone has obviously been through quite a bit of

  • stress, but this is still pretty strange. Now, some protections are removable...you

  • know, like a helmet, or sunglasses, or a screen protector. But peeling off this particular

  • protection reveals that it's not meant to be removed or replaced. This Galaxy Z Flip

  • screen protector thing protects the screen in the exact same way your skin protects your

  • internal organs. Remove it and you'll probably die. Which is what we see happening here.

  • Going full MKBHD on this Z Flip destroys the phone.

  • Now, Samsung has offered a one time screen replacement for broken screens for $119. After

  • that it will be $499. But it's nice of them to offer that first replacement so cheap.

  • I'm not really sure how much we can call it a protective layer though when it's actually

  • essential to the phone's survival. It's not really protecting the screenit is the

  • screen. So if the screen ever does get scratched at a level 2, with deeper grooves at a level

  • 3, the damage is still very permanent.

  • Let's go find that glass though. Looks like I accidentally ripped off the ribbon cable

  • connecting this screen to the internals. I'll check out the guts here in a second. The body

  • of the Z Flip is still super impressive though. We'll be taking apart that hinge to see the

  • bristles Samsung advertised during their launch event.

  • Now according to Samsung, we should start seeing the glass layer right underneath this

  • integral epidermis. And, ladies and gentlemen, I think this is it. Little shards of cracked

  • glass are covering the OLED layer, right underneath that plastic protection. Shiny little slivers

  • of glass are scraping away with my tweezers...almost like little slivers of fiberglass. And it

  • glistens just like broken glass does. Not to mention my fingers are now full of it.

  • Fair payback I guess. Well played. There is glass in here. It's just not the physics bending

  • revolution we all kind of thought it would be.

  • Now Samsung did say that the top protective layer was similar to what they had on their

  • first Galaxy Fold, so we'll take a look real quick. It looks like both screens have the

  • same hard copper layer glued behind the display. Probably for rigidity for the parts that aren't

  • supposed to flex. Pulling off just the top transparent layer of the Fold reveals that

  • indeed both phones have a similar top plastic protection. But underneath that layer the

  • screens are constructed differently. We can see that the Fold has clean flexing plastic,

  • while the Flip has thin cracked layers of glass. I imagine the glass layer does help

  • keep the display a tad more rigid than if it didn't exist at all, but it's still not

  • what your fingers are touching when you use the phone, and it's important to remember

  • that the outer layer of the new Flip is still as soft as the original Galaxy Fold.

  • Let's see if we can tear this thing open and find those dust resistant bristles inside

  • the hinge. I'll remove the black tape protecting the inner screen side of the hinge. This reveals

  • a ton of screws but not a whole lot else at the moment. We'll flip the phone around and

  • come in from the other side. The top piece of glass comes off easy enough. This got crushed

  • during the bend test, which the Galaxy Z Flip performed very well in actually. I'll disconnect

  • the front screen ribbon like a little Lego. Remember, this is the tiny little display...the

  • viewfinder thing we can see when the phone is closed. Kind of fun. I'll bust out my heat

  • gun for the bottom section of glass since it's still glued into place. The heat helps

  • soften the adhesive and I can pull the glass away from the phone body with my suction cup

  • and pry tool.

  • Setting that off to the side, we get our first look at the wireless charging pad in the bottom

  • half of the phone. There is one screw holding down the black plastic bracket over top of

  • the ribbon cable. Once that's unplugged I can set the wireless charger off to the side

  • and I can start on the plastics. The bottom black plastics have 5 screws. Then that loud

  • speaker can come away from the phone body. You can see the white water damage indicator

  • next to the gold contact pads, which let the speaker communicate with the motherboard.

  • The top plastics have their own 6 screws, and then an additional 2 screws at the bottom

  • of the large rectangular plate. And I'll be honest, this thing actually looks super awesome

  • inside. Thumbs up for that. A transparent skin on this phone would look incredible.

  • Let me know in the comments if I should bring the clear skin back again with dbrand.

  • I'll use my plastic pry tool to unplug the top battery, you know, since we would hate

  • to damage the phone or anything. I'll unclip the extension ribbons like little Legos. And

  • then the side volume ribbon over here on the left. The top motherboard has one screw holding

  • it into the phone. And interestingly enough, there are several small magnets along the

  • top that I assume help keep the phone shut when it's in the closed position.

  • I'll take out the removable SIM card tray, unplug the front facing camera, and then the

  • Z Flip motherboard can pull away from the frame of the phone. This thing also looks

  • pretty phenomenal. It's got a sheen covering the entire board like a rainbow. Gotta love

  • that. I'll flip the board around and unplug the two main rear cameras. We have the 12

  • megapixel ultra wide camera on the left with no optical image stabilization. And the main

  • 12 megapixel camera on the right with optical image stabilization. The front facing camera

  • seems to be glued into place, or could possibly be that I bent the phone too much during the

  • bend test and now it's not going to come out easy. Either way, it does come out in pieces.

  • We can see the colorful sensor on the back here, which catches the light and transmits

  • the image to your phone. And then we have the lens portion which brings the light into

  • the sensor. Pretty cool.

  • We have the rectangular earpiece speaker, the circular vibration motor, and the little

  • circular contact pads for the volume rocker. Along with another little white water damage

  • indicator next to the SIM card tray opening. Samsung has included two batteries inside

  • the Z Flip. The phone feels very well balanced when the whole thing is assembled. This top

  • battery comes out relatively easy and is a 930 milliamp hour capacity.

  • Down here at the bottom of the phone I can pop off the long extension ribbon cables,

  • along with one screen ribbon that's attached to the charging port board. This is the same

  • one that I ripped on accident when we were looking for glass on the screen. I'll just

  • set it over here. The bottom of the phone also has a series of magnets along the edge

  • of the frame to keep things closed. The charging port board can pop out of the frame, still

  • attached to the extension ribbon of course. This little guy has the bottom microphone

  • built in and the USB-C charging port. It looks like these long black extension wires run

  • through and are built into the hinge mechanism. So it should be interesting to take a look

  • at when I pull all of that off.

  • But first, the battery. This one is glued much more securely into the frame. And once

  • again, Samsung went a bit overkill on the glue. But it does eventually come out. This

  • one is a much larger 2370 milliamp hour, for a total of 3300 when we add both batteries

  • together. Now that everything is successfully removed from the phone, let's see what this

  • new hinge design has to offer us. Remember, Samsung redesigned this thing with bristles

  • inside to help keep out the dust...since dust is a folding phone's worst nightmare.

  • I'll start with the 4 black screws here in the center. Once those are out I can remove

  • both the top and bottom center trays. This shows 4 large spring looking things. But not

  • a whole lot else. We got to go deeper. Samsung says this hinge is inspired by a lotus blossom.

  • And the hideaway hinge allows the phone to be propped open at any angle...kind of like

  • a laptop. I'll remove the 8 screws holding the bottom half of the frame to the hinge,

  • then I can carefully separate the two halves by pulling the ribbon cables through the bottom

  • opening in the frame. Might as well go all the way at this point. I'll take off the remaining

  • 8 screws holding the hinge to the top half of the frame. And after removing the rubber

  • stopper from the hinge opening, I can pull the extension ribbons through the top half

  • of the frame and our Galaxy Z Flip hinge is free. It looks kind of cool actually. The

  • amount of engineering inside this thing is insane. It is still attached to the metal

  • Samsung logo spine piece, but I can separate that easy enough by breaking loose the center

  • black brackets on both sides, which then frees up the ribbon cable and exposes the final

  • two screws to disassemble the Z Flip hinge. And here we are.

  • Up till this point I haven't seen a single bristle inside this hinge which, you know,

  • would help keep dust out. And if you remember from Samsung's announcement, it looked like

  • the bristles were all over the place in here. Wait...no....this is hilarious. I found them.

  • They aren't all along the inside of the hinge, they're just over here scrunched over on the

  • edge at the little end caps. Which I guess is still pretty effective. Their marketing

  • just, you know, made it seem like things would be a little different. But that just seems

  • to be the theme in general with the Z Flip. The actual geared mechanism is here. A marvel

  • of the mobile era. Straight up steampunk inside the phone.

  • The Galaxy Z Flip quite possibly is the coolest phone of this year. And definitely the most

  • durable folding phone I've ever tested. All that being said, Samsung is the number one

  • smartphone manufacturer in the world. And the hype for this phone was particularly extreme.

  • Not very well worded. I think Samsung needs to tighten up their marketing a bit. It's

  • pretty safe to say that the whole world thought this phone was going to have a glass display,

  • you know, since they literally said on their websiteMeet the first ever folding glass

  • screen on a Galaxy. Yeah, we said folding glass. Made of Samsung Ultra Thin Glass, it

  • sets you up for an epic view with a smooth, flat screen.” Combine that with the bending

  • physics comment, it's a little excessive for what we actually got, you know? And then the

  • bristle thing. I feel like we kind of got catfished on Tinder. This phone is still a

  • 10 out of 10 of course, but it was claiming to be a 15, and because of that, now I feel

  • like it's a 6. If they would have come out and said something like, 'We have created

  • a brand new revolutionary Ultra Thin Glass substrate, that can flex and fold on the new

  • Galaxy Z Flip. This optically clear glass core technology will take flexible screens

  • to the next level.' I think, you know, phrasing it like that would more accurately portray

  • what's going on, while still hyping everyone up for something new.

  • The Galaxy Z Flip isn't actually bending any laws of physics and that's okay. It's still

  • a 10 out of 10 and I'd still swipe right. Let me know what you think down in the comments.

  • Should Samsung have been more realistic about the whole folding glass thing? Come hang out

  • with me on Instagram and Twitter. And thanks a ton for watching. I'll see you around.

So Samsung ended up responding to the verge regarding my Galaxy Z Flip durability test
