New York (The Verge) — Galaxy Z Flip teardown reveals that its hinge brushes may not block much dust theverge.com/2020/2/18/2114….
iFixit has released a video teardown of Samsung’s new Galaxy Z Flip, and it reveals that the hinge brush designed to trap dust and particles from getting inside the phone may not block out quite as much debris as you would like.
When Samsung announced the Z Flip last week, it highlighted how the phone’s hinge has a “fiber shield” intended to trap stray dust and keep it from getting inside the phone. You can see Samsung’s zoomed-in marketing photo of it below. It looks impressive in the marketing photo, but iFixit put that fiber shield to the test — and the results weren’t great. — Jay Peters/@verge
