If reports are to be believed, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are doing quite well in the market, but Samsung is hardly the only game in town.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 teardown videos reveal water resistance secrets

Compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 3, this year's foldable headliner almost looks like an incremental upgrade rather than a revolutionary one, at least if you don't consider the "optional" S Pen. The small improvements, however, add up to make the Galaxy Z Fold 3 one of the most durable phones in the market, despite its seemingly fragile design and display.
