Samsung's 'Ultra Thin Glass' On Galaxy Z Flip Is Basically Just Plastic

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: YouTuber JerryRigEverything regularly does destructive durability tests on phones, partly by attacking a device with a set of Mohs picks. These pointy metal tools that are calibrated to the Mohs scale of mineral hardness allow a user to determine the hardness of a surface by doing a scratch test. You start with the softest pick and work your way up the set until you find something that can scratch the surface you're testing. A modern smartph...

Samsung's Changes To Android Are Making Its Phones Less Secure, Says Google

Google scolded Samsung this week for an issue discovered on the Korean phone maker's Galaxy A50. From a report: Google says Samsung made "unnecessary changes to Android's core kernel," adding the changes Samsung made threaten rather than strengthen the phone's security. The tech giant has a vested interest in making sure Android is secure for OEMs and end users alike. Earlier this week Google announced it has made measurable efforts to limit malicious apps on its Google Play Store and it's clamp...

Samsung's Second Foldable Smartphone, $1,380 Galaxy Z Flip, is Dead on Arrival, Too

Evan Rodgers, reporting for Input: When Samsung released the Galaxy Z Flip, its newest folding phone, at midnight this past Friday, I was one of many who wasn't able to snag one due to low stock here in New York City. So here I am, refreshing my order page while I watch the lucky few who did manage to get one put them through their paces online. Though most YouTubers and reviewers seem to be enjoying the phone, durability is a question, and at $1,380 here in the U.S., it's a good one. At Unpacke...

"Glass" on Samsung's foldable phone no more scratch-resistant than plastic

Samsung claims to have developed an "Ultra Thin Glass" for its new Galaxy Z Flip foldable smartphone, signalling scratch resistance and durability beyond that of similar products. But tests conducted by Zack Nelson using a Mohs Hardness Testkit [Amazon] -- a set of styluses made of different materials -- show that it is no more resistant to scuffs than plastic. In fact, he didn't even need the kit: his fingernail was sharp enough to leave marks. The "glass" scores 2-3 on the Mohs scale, compa...

The massive screen on Samsung's new Galaxy S20 Ultra phone is so big it would have been considered a tablet less than a decade ago

The new Galaxy S20 Ultra from Samsung has a screen that's just 0.1mm shy of Google's Nexus 7 tablet from 2013, which had a 7-inch screen.

The massive screen on Samsung's new Galaxy S20 Ultra phone is so big it would have been considered a tablet less than a decade ago

The new Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has a screen measuring 6.9 inches, just 0.1 inches shy of the 7-inch screen from the Google Nexus 7 tablet from 2013.  If this new Galaxy S20 Ultra smartphone were released back then, it probably would have been considered a tablet.  Samsung is no stranger to making phones with giant screens. Its first Note phone from 2011 had a 5.3-inch screen that was massive compared to the 2011 iPhone 4s, which had a minuscule 3.5-inch screen.  Visit Business Insider's home...

I just spent a day using Samsung's new foldable flip phone — here are the best and worst things about it so far

Samsung's $1,380 Galaxy Z Flip is the company's latest foldable phone. As its name implies, it has a bendable screen and hinge that allows the phone to snap shut just like an old-school flip phone. The phone's hinge and flexible screen enable you to prop it up on a table or flat surface, making it easy to watch videos hands-free or use it as second miniature display throughout the workday. But there aren't many apps available to take advantage of the Z Flip's unconventional design, and it's st...

Living with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

The Galaxy Z Flip ships with the same “Care Instructions” as the Fold. It’s a five-item list with the following basic points: Don’t scratch the screen with a pen or fingernail Don’t stick stuff between the screens when folding Don’t get it dusty, wet or feed it after midnight Don’t stick stickers to the screen Don’t get it near credit cards or your pacemaker Unlike the last time around, however, these warnings seem to have been included out of an (understandable) abundance of caut...

Samsung's new flagship smartphones are incredibly expensive and set a worrying precedent that 5G is only for those who can afford it

Almost all top-spec Android smartphones of 2020 will come with 5G connectivity because the premium Qualcomm chip of 2020 supports 5G connectivity by default.  Samsung's latest Galaxy S20 phones with 5G start at $1,000, and there's no cheaper version of the Galaxy S20 like there was with the Galaxy S10.  The high price of Samsung's Galaxy S20 phones set a worrying precedent that the cost of entry for 5G is high, and it'll only be available to those who can afford it.  5G wireless plans are also...

10 features Samsung's Galaxy S20 phones have that Apple's latest iPhones are missing (AAPL)

Samsung's newly announced Galaxy S20 phones have several features that make them different from both last year's Galaxy S10 and Apple's current iPhones.

Plus, their screens can reach a refresh rate of 120Hz, a feature Apple offers on the iPad but not the iPhone. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Phone manufacturers eye their next move as 5G goes mainstream

For two years running, Samsung played the same trick and front-loaded its annual event by announcing a new foldable. Last year’s announcement of the Fold was a huge one — the first viable (relatively speaking, of course) foldable handset from a major manufacturer. Of course, some stuff has happened in the intervening months, taking a bit of the shine off the device and the category at large. This week at Unpacked 2020, Samsung came out of the gate swinging once again, announcing the Galax...

Let's Get Real About How Important Our Phones Are

Samsung unveiled three flagship smartphones earlier this week. The phones pack the most powerful processor in any Android smartphone, boast an impressive set of camera sensors and offer a range of other features. Commenting on the new phones, a Washington Post columnist writes: "And with prices ranging from $1,000 to $1,400, either one is hard to justify as much more than a luxury." John Gruber of DaringFireball comments: This is the same nonsense we hear about Apple's phones, post-iPhone X. Yes...

Samsung isn't updating one of its best phones from last year, and it proves how different its strategy is from Apple's (AAPL)

Samsung didn't launch a successor to last year's less expensive Galaxy S10e when it unveiled its Galaxy S20 lineup, and it also increased the prices of its flagship smartphones. That's a departure from Apple's approach, in which it positioned the cheaper iPhone 11 as its primary new model, while the pricier Pro was framed as an alternative for photography enthusiasts and power users. Samsung does offer cheaper smartphones, like its Galaxy A series and last year's Galaxy S10. But by keeping its...
