One of the fears that may arise when buying a Samsung Galaxy Fold, in addition to its price, is how much its delicate screen endures the folds of its hinge. This question has been answered live and direct by the people of CNET, who have been broadcasting a video directly to show how many folds the Galaxy Fold endures.
A test of 150 folds per minute
Using a robot called "FoldBot", which doubles the phone 150 times per minute, it has been showing how the terminal endured intensive use. Making it clear that these are not normal circumstances, it is noteworthy that 119,380 folds were necessary for its screen to be given.

As we say this is a test that should be taken as an estimate. It is not only the number of folds, but also the speed at which they are made and the corresponding friction to which it is subjected by this system.
A curious experiment that you can see in the following video.
