    Those stickers you removed are not for waterproofing like you said, the holes there were made to mount the parts easier on to the phones chassis. Kind of like hanging a price of metal and painting the whole thing without actually touching it and leaving a trace of where it's been touched. The holes make assembly easier for Samsung and the stickers are just there to make it look a little bit nicer but still removable if need be

      I think hink it's a sentence structure thing buddy. It sounds like you're trying to correct a mistake he's made. And people are rather protective of kind, honest, decent people on Clip-Share.
      Thinking about it Zack has a whole lotta love, can you even imagine how many responses someone would get if they gave him any actual abuse. 🤔😂

      @Prem Prabhakar no phone would survive if its internals touch water, soon or later its gonna die, he would have to glued it back together since he cut the adhesive, boring and also not relevant since it depends on your ability to do it, not the phone itself,

    8:59 you can see top metal slit in the system is snapped. It's most likely what made the pop and blocks the hinge from closing fully, there might be more damage along the hinge but i couldn't tell for sure.

      It's not glass per say as I remember Jerry testing it some time back. It still scratches at level 2, its more of a thin layer of glass in between plastic or you can call it glastic

      @Aurumfae I think, as long as they’re easily recyclable, they could become something akin to a paper replacement. First, though, they need to make it more durable.

    It's interesting to see exactly how the hinge on my flip 4 failed. From this teardown I can see exactly what happened. The little channel "gears" on the right side of the phone (when the screen is facing you) got knocked out of alignment, and the bottom one, whish is where the failure snapped it off, began to slide forward, going through the graphite tape just enough to puncture the back of the flexible screen directly on top of where it is supposed to be laying down, destroying the pixels there and creating an open circuit for the entire line of pixels in a cross guard section leading away from the initial damage.
    Before I did some minor surgery to wiggle the gear back away from the screen, I could both feel and see something jutting out of the screen and causing it to bulge, though I wasn't sure exactly what it was, besides probably part of the hinge. Now I know the exact shape by connecting the dots between what it felt like and what it looks like.

  • SmellsSmell
    SmellsSmell 2 months ago +4

    I bet the hinge just popped out of place a little bit in the bend test. And it has just enough force to keep the magnets from holding it closed. But crazy it survived. Though I think it more has to do with Jerry's experience with folding phones now as to before than the actual phone itself. Though Samsung does ALWAYS do an amazing job with durability... But everyone makes mistakes now and again...

    Next time you test a foldable, you should do a "squish" test to see if, for example, I have the phone in my pocket and lay on the floor if it'll damage the hinge or screen from weight being applied to both side.

      What'd you mean? You can replace it yourself or if you want to ensure water resistance is in-tact (unlike any other battery powered device) then take it to an authorized repair center as they have the proprietary tools to ensure the entegrity is restored with testing after the repair is completed. Last I checked most ASCs charge $100 or less USD including labor for this, or buy the battery yourself and simply reuse the old adhesives --won't be water tight but neither are most every other battery power device that can be changed out simple

      If you work at an ASC you should know your NDA states that you can be held accountable and possibly threatened with a libel civil case for claiming it is an issue if Samsung has yet to make any official statement regarding *_any_* "known issues." Just saying from one person to another with a Samsung NDA, CYA is always best as such a large corporation isn't shy about litigation.

    It's interesting to note that any fingernail scratching or Mohs hardness testing on the screen was greatly reduced or perhaps even eliminated when removing that top screen protector!

      @twjonckheere I peeled my screen protector off after a small piece of dirt got trapped under it and dented the screen below. It is removable and doesn't destroy the screen, but it is leaving the screen exposed to damage.

  • Gerald Estrelon

    I Dont know if it makes sense why the phone doesnt close totally anymore:
    1. The new hinge design like fold 2 which i had also an issue that time though not fully opening straight which you also experienced few months after use
    2. The magnets, i know magnets doesnt loss its power but there are magnets that holds & should help the phone close
    Just my two cents :)

  • Jeremy Mahon
    Jeremy Mahon 2 months ago +2

    I wonder if the two holes you mentioned were for magnets to help keep the phone closed, and they came up with another solution but left the manufacturing dies as-is and just threw a sticker on it... Or perhaps similar concept, but instead maybe a couple of sensors to detect when it's closed or something.

    I have a Z Flip 3. The screen protector started lifting about 6 months ago, and by 3 months ago, it was completely lifted in the folded section of the screen, so I just removed it. Been a few months now, no issues whatsoever. I think the reason they tell you not to remove it is because the adhesive is probably strong enough to lift the screen and crack it if one is not careful enough when removing it.

    And since you have flip 3 and a flip 4 maybe compare the two. I see recall or class action in Samsungs future, kinda like the battery fiasco on the "Note" Thanks

    Two sturdy toothpicks (maybe make your own out of bamboo) some dental floss wire ... and a ton of alcohol and give it a try to remove the batteries. You shove the wire in the hole using the tooth picks, and you slide them using the tooth picks as "handles" one side at a time.
    It works, but... not the first time. You first have to figure out how to do it and there's no substitute for practical experience.
    Source: i fixed a dead battery phone for a friend and that's how i got it out without it exploding in my face. Frak Samsung. Especially since all their tech in that department (including the bending screen) is stolen Nokia stuff. Nokia made the tech and the least that Samsung could've done is be respectful with their ill gotten tech towards the users. It cost them nothing, except the copy/pasta tooling process in China.

    i mean regardless of how much it broke, fairly impressive/vital how the screen itself and most of the phone was at least *working* after

  • ian_feel_keepin_it_real

    I've had a flip 3 for about 8 Months. Had to remove the front screen film because it had split all along the fold seam. Bit of a joke that Samsung tell you not to remove it when it doesn't even last a year.

    Great teardown. It seems more relaxing to watch knowing the goal isn't to repair but to see the guts of the device.

    You should take some phones from your durability tests into an electronic store to be repaired. That would be funny

    The only thing kept me from buying this phone (and flip 3 last year) was screen durability. if I use it as my daily driver, will survive for at least 2 yrs?

    I returned mine, it was getting FLIPPING hot during video calls especially the top section of the phone, the highest i saw was 43C with ambient temp at around 23C, too hot to hold than the battery would just drain cos of the heat. Great phone but forget about using for heavy tasks.

      Thanks for the suggestion on testing as I want to toss mine through it's paces during the return period --still waiting on delivery since I did a bespoke color scheme

    @JerryRigEverything, Question: Do you think that the new Flip 4 Hinge is _better_ than the Flip 3 hinge?
    Congrats on the re-assembly and a working Z Flip 4! Another great video...thanks!

    Nice work! Had a Z Flip 3 for 1 year without any problems at all and upgraded recently to the Flip 4. Good to see it's sturdy enough 👍

      @Zeth Loveless True. But it was not only the sheer size of the Fold but rather the whole feel of it. I didn't like to interact with it. And I sold it for the same price I paid. So, all's good 😊

    • Zeth Loveless

      @Sandra Kant it pays to be more informed. You just ended up costing yourself more money. Seems like you got into a fold totally unaware of the size. You make a good consumer

      @Zeth Loveless Had to since I sold it to get a Fold 4. But I didn't like that at all. (Note to self: Grow bigger hands in next life. 😄) So went back to the flip form factor.

    nice tear down Jerry, I am tempted to peel my screen protector from my flip 3 since the adhesive along the bend line has deteriorated over the years (ahem one year i guess) but naw i'm too lazy to take it to Samsung I'll just take it to samsung when the bubbles get incredibly huge lol. your video has given me hope that the adhesive of the screen protector will remain strong throughout the years to come hopefully. I am so tempted to buy another of your Knives (currently have the metal i use only at work) but Jerry the shipping costs more then the knife! how! lol. and for some odd reason, i thought all razor knives were the same size but the ones my workplace uses doesn't fit the knife. why! lol.

    I've finally...folded ( 😅) and treated myself with Z Fold 4. I needed a tablet for drafts and mobile work and buying an iPhone Pro & an iPad Mini was really more expensive than just picking up a Z Fold 4,... and it has usb-c, look at that Apple :)
    I'm absolutely loving it, but I cringe every time any girl wants to see it and I look at her long fingernails 😅

    I had a heart attack every time you flexed the folding screen or handled it too hard. It really freaked me out.

    Now after watching this teardown i concluded, that front facing camera breaks very easily during removal. That's weird

    • J.
      J. 2 months ago

      It has a square adhesive around it holding it down --he just man-handled it up like an idiot and the module itself is two sandwiched pieces with the lens body and sensor seperate so he basically jabbed half way through the body and lifted rather than getting completely around and under the entire module to lift where the adhesive holds it down and you can see when he completes pulling the full module including lens housing out of the body. It's pretty easy to avoid but also really easy to do if you're a Neanderthal of tech

  • Liviu Lvu

    The black stickers are covering some holes. The holes are called technical holes or something like that and they exist for a better/performant productivity in their assembling line. This practice it's used in many manufacture.

  • Radsport Club Delta Düsseldorf

    both of the stickers are there for airpressure inside the device, because when you fold, air will compress.
