Motorola Razr fold test shows that 12 months of regular use
The new Motorola Razr could not fully fold after just over 27,000 folds and about three and a half hours in CNET’s “FoldBot” folder. Problem is that Team Test the Mobile Phone out the machine in 3rd time. Then they found that it was difficult to work. When they finally made it, the hinge no longer seemed to be properly aligned. Despite the problems with collapsing, the phone screen was still fully functional.
If we assume that a person checks their phone between 80 and 150 times a day, that particular Razr would have failed after six to twelve months of use. Motorola has not said how many wrinkles it expects the Razr to survive but has determined that it should survive two years. It also offers a one-year warranty for “defects that occur during normal use”.
There are some notable limitations in CNET testing. First, the “FoldBot” they used had problems with the phone for a while before officially ending the experiment. The stream showed that the phone was only partially closed in some places. which may be an indication that the hinge had problems before the 27,000-fold mark. CNET host Chris Parker also noted that the machine may not have been properly calibrated to fold the Razr because the company that set it up did not have a phone for testing.

Back then, the Samsung cell phone survived around 120,000 times before the screen went down. This is much longer than the Razr, although it is still below the 200,000 times promised by Samsung.
CNET has only tested one device, which in no way makes the result conclusive. However, others have also raised problems with Razr build quality. Several reviewers have posted videos about the creaking and groaning of Motorola’s cell phone. Video Show on BBC News. How to lift the plastic screen. which can cause dust and dirt to get into the device.
In either case, it’s not a good sight for a $ 1,499 premium device. Suggest that the manufacturer is a too long process to go before foldable can become anything other than early adopter curiosity.
