Motorola does not agree with the results of the Razr 2019 test: it was not put there and not so folded
Flexible matrices and articulated mechanisms have plenty of flaws, they are not perfect. This was confirmed by Motorola Razr, problems in which were identified by experts and users at the demo level. CNET journalists also arranged their survivability test, who decided to test in practice whether the new product will survive 100 thousand folding / unfolding cycles.
Motorola Razr left the race ahead of schedule, when after 27 thousand bends in the work of the articulated mechanism problems were identified. The experiment did not go unnoticed by Motorola itself, which made an official statement.
The company believes the test from CNET is not correct. In support of her point of view, she referred to the fact that they used a FoldBot robotic installation, which was not intended for such a test, to conduct tests.
In addition, during its implementation, the hinge mechanism was subjected to excessive load, and the smartphone itself did not close and open properly. It is not worth writing off the fact that the actual operating conditions will differ from those that were created at the stand. All these factors do not allow us to consider the CNET test objective and accurate.
Motorola is partly right, but how convincing its users are to users remains a mystery.
