Foldable Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone is still practically not repairable

In April, iFixit experts took apart and identified the flaws of the first folding smartphone Samsung Galaxy Fold, but hastily

deleted your report. Now, when the Korean manufacturer finalized the device and put it on sale, iFixit masters repeatedly “examined” the gadget.

What did you find out

As it turned out, Samsung really workedover additional protection of the model: added an additional layer of metal to strengthen the screen, insulation tape and glue, closed the gaps and the polymer layer of the screen so that it could no longer be peeled off like a protective film.

However, debris and dust can still get into the bend of the display and interfere with its operation.

And with the maintainability of a folding smartphone, everything is bad: the screen and mechanical parts are very fragile and vulnerable, and many components are modular, so along with one part, others will have to be changed.

As a result, the new version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold received as much for maintainability as the old - only 2 out of 10 points.
