Motorola puts out a foldable Razr test video in response to durability concerns
After Motorola's reborn Razr seemed to fail a recent durability test, the company fired back with a response and a test of its own.
The Razr broke after only 27,000 folds from FoldBot, a tool developed to literally fold and unfold devices to test its durability. CNET planned to put the device through 100,000 folds, a goal well below the Samsung Galaxy's record of 120,000 folds. The site tested it during what was supposed to be a 12-hour livestream, but it was cut short when the Razr's hinge got stuck and the FoldBot was unable to continue ... folding.
Motorola responded with a statement and the below video, which shows its own folding machine fully opening and closing the phone. The FoldBot only partially closes the phone before opening it again.
