After his classic “durability test” a few days ago on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4, today YouTuber Zack from Jerrygg is everything The channel is back with the traditional sequel, the teardown. All were captured on video for your viewing pleasure, and embedded below.
If you love seeing the insides of phones more than they look from the outside, then this type of video is definitely for you. Being a foldable device, the Fold4 is more interesting than a regular slate phone, and Samsung has also claimed to have redesigned the hinge. Is that correct? See for yourself in the video.
The Galaxy Z Fold4’s flexible inner screen is made up of several different layers, all of which show up during tearing at the expense of the screen that doesn’t work back – it might be nice to fold in one direction, but it certainly doesn’t like it folded any other way. There’s also a new metal plate under the display assembly, and a new hole for the camera under the display.
The outer screen glass is encased in a metal frame which makes removing it without damaging it very difficult, and after unscrewing dozens of screws, all the internal components can be accessed once the screens are gone. Batteries are held in place with generous amounts of adhesive and there are no pull marks, which makes battery removal and replacement more chore than it should be.
