Allstate a well known american provider of protection plans had just tested the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G.
In their durability test the device went thorugh a couple of things.
First one was a drop test where Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G was droped while its internal display was open.
This test was performed from six feet high and dropped directly on its internal display. It did see noticeable scuffing on the corners of the frame and there was minor but permanent pixel damage on the screen. Then, the Z Fold3 was dropped on its cover screen which shattered on the first drop.
It doesn’t sound good for all future owners, but we need to remember that this is a new technology that is being improved all the time.
Second test was a water test, the Z Fold3 was submerged in a swimming pool five feet deep for thirty minutes.
The Z Fold3’s IPX8 water resistance rating is officially capable of surviving in 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) of freshwater for up to 30 minutes.
As you can see the device did rather good.
Allstate stated that it is the most durable foldable phone they tested.
