Samsung’s first foldable smartphone, Galaxy Fold finally went on for sale in South Korea and the company has received an overwhelmingly good booking response.

While the smartphone is yet to ship to the public, Jack Nelson over at JerryRigEverything got his hands on Samsung’s foldable device. Jack put the Galaxy Fold to test as he usually does to other smartphones. The result is somewhat predictable though.

The main issue is with the inner display — even a fingernail “can cause considerable damage to the screen.” Again, the result isn’t surprising, given the fact that it’s made of soft plastic.

The smartphone isn’t dustproof, like at all! The dust can easily get into the hinge, which in turn, can cause damage to the hinge system. To put it simply, the Galaxy Fold failed in most of the tests.

On the brighter side, it’s not easy to snap the Galaxy Fold backward, thanks to the articulating hinge.”Samsung Galaxy Fold might have a few glaring weak points but the articulating hinge is definitely not one of them,” Jack noted.
