How durable is the Galaxy Fold? That’s a question everyone who will buy Samsung’s foldable device will want the answer to, and, well, the Fold will either surprise you or prove what you already know based on the kind of abuse it goes through. Popular YouTube channel JerryRigEverything put the Galaxy Fold under its usual assortment of durability tests and found the device to be quite fragile, while a drop test by a different YouTube channel saw the Fold make an impressive stand against drops from various heights and angles.Zack Nelson from JerryRigEverything answered what is perhaps the most important question of all: How well does the updated design of the Galaxy Fold protect it against dust? Samsung added wider caps on the gaps between the hinge and the inner display to prevent dust from getting in, and JRE put this to the test by dropping a handful of dust and dirt on the inner display and folding the device shut. Unfortunately, the caps didn’t do a very good job, as some of the dirt particles managed to get into the hinge mechanism.
