Motorola Razr Is Proven To Break After A Year Of Use

Motorola’s new foldable phone, Razr, stops folding properly after more than 27,000 folds with the FoldBot of CNET

Motorola’s new foldable phone, Razr, stops folding properly after more than 27,000 folds with the FoldBot of CNET. The testing team found out the problem after they took the phone out from the machine and realized that it could not be folded as the hinge fell out of alignment. However, the screen is still fully functional.

There are a few notes here. The FoldBot seems to have problems with the Razr even before the 27,000 fold mark. At some point, the machine could only partially fold the phone. Chris Parker of CNET admitted that the FoldBot might not have been calibrated to work on the Razr as the company that made it did not have exactly that phone to work with.

If we assume that the test had no flaws and a person uses their phone around 80 to 150 times per day, this test Razr will be broken after up to 12 months in use. Motorola did not say exactly how long users should expect the phone to function but it did say the Razr should be good for at least two years.

As you might have guessed, Motorola was not too happy about the result, in answer, it released what it claimed the real Razr flip test:

Last year, CNET performed a similar fold test on the Galaxy Fold. Samsung’s foldable phone broke after 120,000 folds, a lot more than the Razr but still fell short of the company’s promise of 200,000 folds.

While CNET’s test is far from conclusive, other reviewers have had problems with the build quality of the phone. Some reported groans and creaks when their phones were folded.

Overall, this is a piece of bad news for the Rs. 108,290 device. We might have to wait for a few more years until foldable phones can be something the general mass find useful.
