I Broke My First Foldable [Into The Fold Episode 6]

20 000 Показвания 407 хил.

This is a video that I never wanted to make, but let’s be honest: it was inevitable. MrMobile has officially broken his first folding phone, and of course, it’s the one Michael Fisher bought with his own money.

On this episode of Into The Fold: what happens when you wreck your Motorola RAZR 5G (2020) - and why it’s not a reason to distrust either Motorola or foldables in general … because my Razr didn’t break the way you might think.


bgsun.info/fire/SOp ...


This is the sixth in a series of episodes exploring the many facets of life on a folding screen. From the best foldable phones of 2020 to the bleeding-edge world of folding-screen laptops, Into The Fold is MrMobile’s showcase for the most exciting movement in mobile technology since 2007!

Episode 6, a list of lessons learned from MrMobile’s first broken foldable, was produced following 40 days with a Motorola Razr 5G / Motorola Razr 2020 retail unit purchased by Michael Fisher. Motorola sent two Razr 5G / Razr 2020 cases for inclusion in this video, but neither Motorola, Chase, nor any other company paid a fee or otherwise offered compensation in exchange for this coverage, nor did any company preview or approve this content before publication.

    [EPILOGUE] Six months later, my RAZR 5G found new life thanks to Hugh Jeffreys! Watch him bring this phone back to life here, and toss him a subscribe if you like excellent (and weirdly soothing) phone repair videos! bgsun.info/pack/video/bXloi6d8m9d6pKY

      Thanks for the link to this video. Its nice to know that finding these parts is not completely out of the realm of possibility. By the way, you said in the original video that you do not blame Motorola and while I agree with that up to a point I still think they share some of the blame. After all, why would you make a phone with a glass housing and then not have replacement of those glass pieces as a repair option or even offer the parts up for sale to those who would like to do the replacement themselves. It just makes no sense whatsoever. Either make the front and back cover out of metal or offer replacement glass parts if making it out of glass. Nobody should have to pay $1000 for a new phone simply because a piece of glass is cracked.

    Hey, sup Michael (i'm also Michael haha) I've watched this video with one purpose: my galaxy z flip cracks each 8 months without even dropping the phone and i guess the "super duper innovative folding glass" technology isn't really that good, and I'm kinda tired to pay 800 bucks each 8 months for a replacement (believe me, it's a hell of money in Russia). That's y I'm so interested in durability of razr, cuz I'm considering changing my samsung on it. Can u answer if your samsungs even cracked or is the razr a really good experience? I'm kinda afraid to go from better processor to the worse one, getting one camera instead of two and lose wireless charging.

    I think the moto razr was BORN TO RAISE FOLDABLE PHONES AGAIN samsungs foldables are meh, it breaks by itself and ive seen motos that are like months old and they still not having that little weird mark in the fold part. unlike samsung foldables

    If you think about it, if the phone is dropped closed then the foldable part is probably the part least likely to get damaged...its flexible and its encased by everything else , so should be pretty impervious the to the impact shock and vibrations of being dropped

    I understand where you are coming from, but regardless of the phone being foldable or not, the damaged sustained by a single drop is quite a lot. I have my previous phone, an Xperia XZ that I used without a case for a few years and it sustained several drops to concrete and hard floor such as tile, the damage it has includes broken frame (plastic) and a small chipped corner of the front glass, however the display itself is not cracked.

    Wow, I'm amazed at the quality of the hardware. Any other phone would have been destroyed by that hit, being honest. It's sad that the software experience is so poor in motorola devices. I bought a Razr and returned it in a week due to spoty wifi, GPS and constant slowdowns.

    one of the main reason I want a foldable is because it does protect the main display (at least of the most part) and this only goes to prove it, though the outer display was FUBAR, the main inner display worked perfectly fine. If that had of been a slab phone chances are the phone would have no longer worked, just saying.

    +MrMobile [Michael Fisher] That suckes you broke the Razr (at least partially). Even more surprising, is that the folding display went unscathed. That says that maybe Motorola's folding display is more durable the people expect it to be.

    A slippery hand-held device should be able to withstand 4-feet drops on any surface. If they don't want you to drop it they should provide a wrist strap. Why is the outside made of glass, anyway? Don't blame the costumer for faulty design.

    Oh man, I love the style and feel of this phone. Would love to get one, but I'm scared of ruining the main display. I can afford it, but I can't afford to break it in a couple of months. If I buy it, I need it to last me atleast one whole year. Sure motorola provides cases (I always use my phone with a case) but I wished this phone shipped with a factory applied screen protector and I really wish there was some kind of solution to dust getting under the display.

    I agree I would not blame Motorola I htink the fault is in the hands on the lie of the Gorilla Glass. " designed to be thin, light and damage-resistant" Well the damage-resistant is so damn useless that if you drop you phone it cracks like an egg. So the only meaning behind resistant to damage is well it will survive scratches but nothing else. I wish companies tried to find something better than shitty Gorilla glass.
