The Motorola Razr has been on the market for less than two weeks and already one of the foldable phones is reportedly showing excessive wear and tear.
Raymond Wong published an article yesterday about the issues he’s seeing with a Razr that Input has owned for a little more than a week. Wong noticed that the screen had started to peel away the laminate top layer right at the hinge, creating a bubble between the screen and the laminate.
The damage isn’t the result of rigorous durability tests but rather occurred in the user’s front jeans pocket sometime during a 45-minute subway ride in New York, Raymond Wong writes.
When Wong took the phone out to take some pictures, that is when he says he noticed the air gap.
“The screen was completely warped from hinge-to-hinge with the top layer raised like a poorly applied screen protector,” Wong writes.
Wong said that he didn’t drop it and that the phone has “never been wet, or moist, or even near liquid.” He speculated that it could possibly be due to changes in temperature from using the phone in the cold and then again back in his warm apartment, but it’s hard to know if that’s actually what made the bubble.
Wong said that Motorola hasn’t responded to comment about the issue.
