Popular YouTube blogger EverythingApplePro decided to check how strong the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Motorola RAZR (2019) . Both smartphones have an identical form factor, similar opening mechanism and have flexible displays. After a few fatal drops, the author of the video was able to make an objective conclusion about the durability of the new products.
Even before the test began, the blogger noted that the Galaxy Z Flip feels stronger than the Motorola RAZR (2019). It has no distinctive crunch in the swivel mechanism, and the front edge looks more complete.
The first test was falling from the height of his pants pocket. Both smartphones were thrown down on a concrete floor in a closed condition. After the third “flight” Galaxy Z Flip suffered serious damage in the area of the mini display – the glass of Gorilla Glass 6 could not resist the impact and cracked.
The next test was falling from the same height, but already in the unfolded state. After the second test, one half of the Galaxy Z Flip’s rear cover was covered with a grid of cracks. The Motorola RAZR (2019) screen could not resist when falling from a height of human height – a vertical band of broken pixels appeared on the matrix. At the same time, the display of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip protects the frame mounted on the perimeter of the case, as a result its screen did not get “damage”.
Blogger noted that in terms of resistance to damage the folding case of Samsung was more durable. The advantage of the RAZR (2019) is the plastic case, which easily survives falls, but the gadget display of Motorola is more vulnerable.
