Final month Motorola made the Razr 40 Extremely foldable smartphone official for worldwide markets, and the identical system is being marketed within the US because the Razr+. It is one and the identical, so when Zack from the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel performs his trademark sturdiness check on a Razr+, know that if you happen to aren’t in North America what you are seeing applies to the Razr 40 Extremely as nicely.
Now that we obtained that essential little bit of clarification out of the best way (thanks, Motorola!), let’s get proper to it.

We’ve to say, this is not the primary time we have seen a smartphone fail a bend check, but it surely’s the primary time we have seen one fail it on this specific manner. Kudos to Motorola for doing it creatively?
In case you are not in a position to watch the video, here is what occurs. When bent, it is not the principle, versatile display screen that provides in. Moderately, the outer display screen’s Gorilla Glass Victus shatters. That is… not one thing that ought to occur, we assume?
Do nonetheless needless to say this can be a fairly excessive manner of “utilizing” a cellphone, so it is fairly doubtless one thing like it will by no means occur to you. Other than the bend check, it was all regular – the screens each scratch when they need to, they usually react to an open flame as one would anticipate.
