Thanks! Share it with your friends!

CORRECTION!: There ARE more bristles along the inside edge of the frame. You can see them in this video. I was focused on the hinge and didn’t see they added bristles elsewhere. Nice Catch guys.

Samsung’s’ new Galaxy Z Flip is here, and its survived my durability test for the most part. Now its time to take apart Samsungs latest folding smartphone and see if we can find any of the glass they promised us in the launch video. Samsung said they had invented a new revolutionary ‘physics bending’ ultra thin glass material. But it sure doesnt feel or act like glass form the top. Maybe there is glass inside? The only way to find out is with a Galaxy Z Flip Teardown.

Were you annoyed for this one?

droid monkey says:

To be fair, marketing, especially nowadays, is almost always done like that. The difference is, we've already become accustemed to it and instinctively ignore the more extraordinary claims. In this case, the hype for flip phones is what drove many to flat out believe the claims they would have otherwise ignored as marketing dribble.

Your rephrasing of Samsung's sales pitch was perfect. I wish marketing was more honest like that but honesty in marketing is hard to come by a lot of the time.

Ralph Garcia says:

Lloyd Roy Saranza says:

Rishi says:

I am pretty sure Every Phone company has done exactly this with the Z Flip ! So they can also design their next folding phone.

Rishi says:

Samsung: W T F are you doing to the phone?

Mohamed Antar says:

So, the screen scratches, nails leave deep dents on it, and the screen is, if not less, as fragile as the plastic counter part, samsung is just ripping us off! The glass in the screen do not provide us with the same benefits as a regular non bendable glass screen would. In fact, the tear down just proved that it is more fragile than a complete plastic screen is as now it can shatter too! So it scratches, loves dents and now its gonna shatter too! The question is, what the F do we need foldable phones!? And even if we do, what the F is a thin glass gonna change in that useless display other than make it more fragile?! I guess samsung just wanna fool older men and women who have more money than knowledge about phones and why would they have? They have better things to worry about! Still fooling them with the marketing bullshi@ is so not fair!
