You may have seen CNET’s Motorola RAZR test where the hinge broke after just 27,000 folds, but apparently, the machine they used was to blame. To be more specific, SquareTrade’s FoldBot is not designed to test the RAZR, so any tests conducted utilizing this machine will put undue stress on the hinge and not allow the phone to open and close as intended, making it inaccurate. Read more for a video showing just how well the RAZR stands up to a machine that is designed for this test.
One thing to note is that the RAZR’s folding OLED screen didn’t break or crack, just the hinge, so it is possible that SquareTrade’s FoldBot wasn’t properly calibrated, or if there is actually a flaw with the hinge in Motorola’s handset. Either way, we’ll let Motorola’s own video do the talking.
