Motorola claims that the flexible RAZR display is durable and won't break like in the Samsung Galaxy Fold

Recently, Motorola finally announced the legendary “clamshell” RAZR with a 6.2-inch flexible display

Flex View. And today we’ll talk about its reliability.

(Not?) Durable

The fact is that the Motorola RAZR's display folds inward, just like its competitor Samsung Galaxy Fold. And his experience is quite sad: the first samples of the smartphone broke after just a couple of days.

However, Motorola representatives are confident in the durability of the RAZR flexible display:

“We did not release the new Motorola RAZR to the market,until we were sure that he was ready. We have full confidence in the durability of the Flex View display and, based on our research, it will last for the average lifespan of a smartphone. We recognize that this is a completely new technology and we strive to continue to improve as the industry evolves. That’s why we’ve created a world-class package to ensure every RAZR customer has an exceptional experience.”

What if it breaks?

Now let’s take a closer look at the “world-class service package.” It will only be available in the US, although it is possible that users from other countries will receive it in the future.

So, if the screen on your Motorola RAZR breaksor another part - the company promises to repair or replace the smartphone within 24 hours. If the flexible screen breaks during normal use, it will be replaced free of charge. If this happened under conditions outside the scope of the standard warranty, the repair will cost $299.

And this is a pretty nice amount.By comparison, an iPhone 11 display replacement costs $199, an iPhone 11 Pro costs $279, and an iPhone 11 Pro Max costs $329. Replacing the Galaxy Fold's flexible display will cost $149, but only for those who buy the smartphone before the end of the year. Regular price is $599.
