YouTuber Tears Down Samsung Galaxy Z Flip to Find the Promised Glass Material
With every company on Earth getting their hands on building them, flip phones are officially back. Samsung's foldable smartphone Galaxy Z Flip is the newest one to join the party, and of course, it came with a lot of promises.
The launch video promised a revolutionary, brand new, "physics bending", and ultra-thin glass material, however, stress tests made by people all around the internet went so bad that they led many people into thinking that it is mostly made from plastic. Several others commented that it doesn't feel or act as a glass form would.
This YouTuber went on a grand journey to find the promised glass, and of course, the only way to do that was possible through destruction.
We don't want to spoil the ending, however, we will just say that the poor foldable phone goes through a lot. To be back from the 90s to endure such pain... Yuck!
We should also mention that the video makes for a very good, most probably involuntary, ASMR video. You should pop your earphones in before watching it.
