Galaxy Z Flip Durability Test for Samsung Ultra Thin Glass Fail.

Samsung recently launch a new foldable phone Galaxy Z Flip with a claim that the screen of the new Galaxy Z Flip is made from an “Ultra-Thin Glass”. It was really a breakthrough when Samsung launches this foldable phone last week.

As all foldable phone screen which is available in the market from the different brand is made from plastic displays. As Samsung Galaxy Z Flip claim of having an “Ultra-Thin Glass” turn false when the phone goes through a durability test by a YouTuber. In the durability test, the phone screen gets easily scratched with a fingernail.   

Zack Nelson tested the Z Flip phone and names this test JerryRigEverything durability test which was not inspiring. The display starts showing permanent marks and scratches far earlier than the actual glass smartphone would. The display starts showing lots of damages and fault in the initial test which is enough to say that the display is not made up of any glass. You can watch the Zack Nelson Durability test for Galaxy Z Fold for better understanding.

At the time, Samsung is not answering any of these questions. But the Company offered a response when The Verge asks for a comment on their story.

Galaxy Z Flip features an Infinity Flex Display with Samsung’s Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) to deliver a sleek, premium look and offer an immersive viewing experience,” a spokesperson said by email. “Samsung’s first-of-its-kind UTG technology is different from other Galaxy flagship devices. While the display does bend, it should be handled with care. Also, Galaxy Z Flip has a protective layer on top of the UTG similar to Galaxy Fold.

According to Zack Nelson, the Samsung is using a hybrid plastic polymer (with microscopic bits of glass mixed in) so the company can advertise this display as “Ultra-Thin Glass”. But if the screen is getting damage so easily then it is not worth paying $1,380 for Galaxy Z Flip.
