Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 Shows Its Strength Over Z Flip 4

Published

on


Zack Nelson, who runs the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel, has put hundreds of cellphones through their paces. Nelson’s tests provide a good indication of a phone’s durability, even if real-world durability testing is challenging to duplicate. The phones sent through these tests are put through bend, burn, and scratch tests, and occasionally they even have to deal with sand particles. Samsung recently launched their fifth lineup of Galaxy Z series with the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5. After the Galaxy Z Fold 5’s durability test, JerryrigEverything on Youtube is now testing the Galaxy Z Flip 5.

The test starts with the durable testing of the external front screen of the Flip 5, all credits to the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection for the screen. There are visible scratches at level 6 of scratching, and level 7 shows deeper cuts. Levels are measured using a Mohs scale. Now coming to the foldable internal screen, Zack’s Mohs tool’s level 2 scratches caused a built-in screen protector to break down. It is no surprise that the inner foldable screens are always delicate to handle, and the firm always advises not to apply more pressure on the internal screen. The plastic layer that surrounds the display is even scratchable.

The Flip 5’s aluminum edges, the device’s back, and the back of the redesigned hinge are all brought into the durability test, and it has been proven that these parts of the phone are also scratch-prone. Zack closed the foldable to check whether the screen contacts where the plastic shim comes in as a saver. In addition to functioning as a fingerprint reader, the power button is detachable. Through repeated damage, the volume rocker stops functioning. Next comes the dust test. Zack sprinkles sand all over the model and folds the gadget to ensure no minute dirt particles enter inside.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 Display Gets a Secret Upgrade

Flip 5 somewhat managed to escape undamaged, as only a small amount of sand may have penetrated. This is not something to be tested, as everyone knows that South Korean technology hasn’t yet come up with dust-resistant foldables. However, the IPX8 rating offers water resistance. Till now, the Flip 5 has not stopped functioning, which leads to the burn test. After the exposure to fire, the internal screen, which is made up of plastic, burns after withstanding 15 seconds of heat. The front screen took 10 seconds to show dark patches on the screen that are unrecoverable but don’t terminate the screen function.

The final and most crucial test for foldables is the bend test, and the Galaxy Z Flip 5 passes the test with flying colors in a more significant way than its predecessor. Zack added that even the Motorola Razr Plus malfunctioned, which is something that he never expected. So it shows that the new leaflets are truly the most innovative piece of work from Samsung.

Samsung boosts North American AI with Former Apple Siri lead 

Published

on


Samsung is integrating its two North American AI research centers. On the other hand, it is also hiring a former Apple executive to lead the newly combined team. This step hints that Samsung is strengthening its AI research and development (R&D) efforts in North America. 

The reports suggest that the brand has made the announcement internally this week, around the same time Apple kicked off a much-anticipated expansion into AI, as revealed by the people who asked not to be identified since the changes have yet to be announced. 

The Korean giant is working on a new operation called the North America AI Center, integrating its teams in Toronto and Mountain View, California. Samsung’s research arm “Ecntralized” the two centers to improve operations and increase efficiency, according to an internal memo viewed by Bloomberg. The brand didn’t disclose the exact reason for what would happen to the two offices. 

This step directly suggests that the world’s two largest technology firms are getting more aggressive in AI. Murat Akback, a former Apple executive, will head up the division. According to the memo from the iPhone maker, Akback was  “responsible for defining and executing the strategy for Siri, Apple’s digital assistant, focusing on personalization, contextualization, and advancements in conversational and multimodal AI.” 

Apple announced a significant AI boost focusing on upgrading Siri and user experience through a system called Apple Intelligence. They hold OpenAI technology for some features but rely heavily on in-house development. On the other hand, the Korean giant integrated its North American AI research centers. He hired an ex-Apple AI expert, potentially to power up its AI development (R&D) in North America. They dedicatedly use Google Gemini technology for their AI mechanism.
