Motorola responds to broken Razr due to cold weather, Samsung remains silent
Although the PR nightmare of the Samsung Galaxy Fold launch happened back in the summer, it doesn’t seem like that long ago. Unfortunately, it might be déjà vu for Samsung as the Galaxy Z Flip is now facing breakage problems out in the wild.
Additionally, the other hot foldable of the moment, the Motorola Razr, is also facing some issues.
In two particular cases, cold weather is listed as being a possible culprit for the problems. In the first case, a Galaxy Z Flip owner on Twitter recounts the story of how their new foldable cracked after only one fold (via 9to5Google). Check out the tweet and corresponding image below:
Received my Samsung Galaxy Z Flip just now. Opened the box. Removed the protective/instruction film. Flipped the phone as you would do since it’s a flip phone and this happened. I heard the crack as well.
