The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 from Samsung are some of the hottest gadgets available right now. Numerous YouTubers have voiced their opinions about the new foldables since the Korean company first introduced them, with some even going so far as to turn the phones inside out. We have observed them enduring a number of severe durability tests, such as Zack Nelson of JerryRigEverything’s forceful bend test. The YouTube channel PhoneBuff has provided us with a drop test of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 today.
FOLD AND FLIP 4 DROP TEST FOR GALAXY Z The Armor Aluminum body of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 has Gorilla Glass Victus on the front and back. For shock absorption, Samsung has also added some dampening materials within. Of course, the UTG (ultra-thin glass) panel that makes up the interior folding display is too fragile to resist scratches and breakage. The devices are therefore not indestructible, despite being rather sturdy and well-equipped to handle a few drops from low heights.
From a height of one meter, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 were initially dropped on their backs. The metallic frame of them received minor scratches, but the back glass was unharmed.

When the phones were dropped with the font sides downward, the story is essentially the same. While the Galaxy Z Fold 4 was still in tact despite some cosmetic damage along the edge, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 had a small crack in the rear panel.
The phones were then dropped when the cover screens were downward. This time, the front glass of the Flip devices broke, but the screen was still functional. The Fold did not sustain any significant harm. Notably, the former had a cover screen that protruded somewhat from the body. Thus, it might have caused the glass to break. However, neither gadget has experienced any issues.
These Samsung folding phones are quite durable. Next, the two phones were dropped on their inner folding displays, and the results were the same: scarcely any damage was noticeable.

Phone Buff finally dropped the hinged, half-folded phones. At this point, the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s back glass broke. The hinge seemed less smooth, according to the channel, but neither phone’s functioning was affected.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are both quite well constructed, it can be said. A few drops from your pocket or couch onto the floor should not harm them. However, it’s always a good idea to protect these pricey foldables with a case. Tragedies can happen at any time. Below, you can view the complete drop test of the most recent Samsung foldables.
