Samsung's 'Ultra Thin Glass' On Galaxy Z Flip Is Basically Just Plastic (slashdot)

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: YouTuber JerryRigEverything regularly does destructive durability tests on phones, partly by attacking a device with a set of Mohs picks. These pointy metal tools that are calibrated to the Mohs scale of mineral hardness allow a user to determine the hardness of a surface by doing a scratch test. You start with the softest pick and work your way up the set until you find something that can scratch the surface you're testing. A modern smartph...

Raymond Wong over at Input Mag found that the screen went bad at the hinge--after just one week of use:Images by Raymond Wong / Input As Wong explains:The screen's damage isn't just cosmetic. The touchscreen is semi...

Samsung's $1,380 Galaxy Z Flip is without a doubt a better foldable smartphone than Motorola's $1,500 Razr for 8 big reasons

Motorola's new Razr foldable smartphone received positive attention, even with its high $1,500 price tag. But Samsung dented Motorola's buzz when it announced the $1,380 Galaxy Z Flip foldable smartphone.  Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip offers significantly better specs and features than the Motorola Razr for less money.  Still, I can't recommend either foldable device due to their incredibly fragile screens.

Meet VOIXATCH, a smartwatch for an alternate world where watches and earphones are one product

It might sound a little dumb now that I’m saying it in 2020 but we may have been duped. Companies have, for too long, made us buy unnecessary products that just about do the same thing but in slightly different ways. Think about it. Your phone, watch, and earbuds all give you notifications (albeit in different ways). They also all let you access your voice assistant, and pretty much most of your data like your calendar, phone book, or other services. Why then, do we need separate devices that ...

It’s no surprise Galaxy Z Flip and Razr phones are breaking

We all know what happened with the Samsung’s first crack at foldable phones, but hopes were high for its sophomore attempt, the Galaxy Z Flip. After a sketchy teaser at the Oscars, the handset launched to a sea of positive reviews. “It’s the future,” was the common sentiment. Then it started breaking. Yet another foldable with a shattered screen. That’s what I call a shattered dream. But who could’ve seen it coming? It’s as if we learned nothing from the not-so-distant past: Foldables are meant ...

Apple's coronavirus warning that it won't sell enough iPhones is great news for Samsung

Apple announced Monday that the coronavirus outbreak means it will miss its revenue guidance for its fiscal second quarter due to its impact on the company's supply chain and store closures in China.

Surprise: The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip’s ultra-thin folding ‘glass’ scratches like plastic

When Samsung announced the Galaxy Z Flip would be the first phone to use “ultra-thin glass,” I had just one big question: would it hold up to JerryRigEverything’s scratch tests? Would it, as with virtually every glass phone ever, “scratch at a level six, with deeper grooves at a level seven?” Nope. Samsung’s ultra-thin glass screen is apparently no more durable than plain old plastic. Zack Nelson (that’s right, his name isn’t Jerry), put the phone through his usual gamut of durability challenges...
