After concerns raised yesterday about the durability of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip screen, the emerging category of foldable phones has achieved further success. One user reported a catastrophic screen peeling issue on the new Motorola Razr.
After only one week of use, Raymond Wong of Input noticed that the laminate covering his Razr's display had peeled off the screen along the fold of the foldable phone and left a blister across the width of the device.
According to Wong, the screen peeling occurred at some point during a 45-minute train ride while the Motorola Razr was kept in his pocket.
"I have no idea how it happened, but I can promise you that it wasn't an impact. The phone was closed in my front jeans pocket throughout the trip and there is no visible damage to the device," said Wong ,
To make things worse, said Wong s The damage is not just cosmetic. As expected, the area of the touchscreen in the warped area was affected by the damage, so that "touching and tapping practically no longer respond, especially when tapping on things in a list such as in the Settings app"
. Wong is unsure of what could have caused the screen to flake off, although he theorized that temperature changes "could have triggered a reaction that could have loosened the adhesive."
The input was asked for a comment by Motorola but has not yet received an answer on this topic.
