iFixit has just made public a teardown video of the Motorola Razr, showing us what is on the inside of this foldable phone and how it hinge mechanism works to support the flexible screen.

While iFixit experts highly regard the high engineering level of the phone, they also note that its internal complexity makes it one of the most challenging smartphones they have ever taken apart.

Motorola was quite generous in applying a large amount of glue to hold the phone parts in place, which makes it hard for iFixit to take the device apart. When they were able to get to the inside, there are also lots of flex cables to avoid, a piece of really bad news for anyone who intends to fix the device.

The complication is such that iFixit is surprised Motorola asks for just $299 to repair the screen. While iFixit gave the Razr the lowest possible repair score of one, it also said that users should not expect more than that in a first-generation device.

The ability to be fixed is still important for a foldable device, which reliability has not been proven. According to iFixit, Motorola Razr shows a small gap between the display and the hinge stems from the fact that the device can only mid-fold.

When the Galaxy Fold was first released, the same gap was believed to be the gateway for dust and debris to enter.

Only time can prove the durability of the Motorola Razr. According to a test conducted by CNET, the phone’s hinge will be broken in less than a year in use while Motorola did a similar test to prove that its product can last for much longer.
