Motorola Razr's secret is the HINGE not the screen

    The new Motorola Razr hits a lot of right notes: nostalgia, size and a foldable display. I got to visit the lab at Motorola's headquarters in Chicago, where I saw the design and engineering process behind the Razr's zero-gap hinge and how it allows the phone to go from perfectly flat to folded in half.
    The Razr is the third foldable device to be released in the past year. After a troubled launch in April, Samsung's Galaxy Fold officially went on sale in September. And at the end of 2018, Royole launched the FlexPai, a large phone that opens up into a tablet. But the pocketable size and creaseless flat-folding display make the Razr unique. And while the screen is the star of the show, the hinge is what's doing all the work.

There are new phones that have been released before the year ended and most of them have better specifications (e. g. Quad camera) than Motorola Razr).

That is a Lenovo engineered phone pretending to be Motorola. Motorola doesn`t exist.

To be honest it’s a combination of both screen and hinge....as Steve Jobs would say...”patent that hinge...by god we have!”

i picked up the razor in a recycling center and really can't wait for this to be at the $300 price point AU...one day. it's so satisfying to fold and flip a phone.

The gap between the screen and the back as you open/close...things can get inside. But I love how they fixed the things going inside via the back of the hinge issue! I think they did, anyways - maybe? The rounded middle plastic bit and the side pieces sit flush no matter which fold position it is in

Maybe this is the decade when mechanical engineering truly comes back into mobile phone development! Love that they actually have gears inside the phone. I bet someone like Steve Jobs would have hated it!

If this is turning out even half as good as the original Razr, this will be a damn good phone. I had that for like 3 years until a drunken party and a drop in the toilet. Let's just hope this time it can withstand the water.

It is very like my old RAZR from 2004. It has a huge chin, but then again, it's not the only huge chin in this video. 🤔

You don't have to be a engineer to make that design! But in overall it's very comfortable and small.

Tell Motorola that releasing it only on Verizon was a stupid move. There are other carriers and millions of other people. I would have bought it but Motorola made it impossible.

MOTOROLA lost me on this one. deal breaker, 5 megapixel front facing camera. tech should be moving forward not backwards. more like a gimmick. I bet that screen won't last a year. garbage.

if you pause at 4:46 you can see there's an opening in between the screen and the phone plate. What happens if dust/lint gets in there? Will it cause any problems?

And here is the issue with this. It does cost 1700 Euro, and does not offer everything. If you have a Note 9 and want to upgrade, it will actually be a downgrade. Same with samsung. At 2000 plus, your phone must do everything your other phones are doing already. I am not getting a top tier phone each month, your 1700 € phone with mid range components will not be picked for the next 1-3 years depending on the person.

Dust, dirt, rocks, lint, hair, and any other small object will work it's way behind the screen, in the hinge and in the gears. Gonna require cleaning often with compressed air.

only thing I want to know, with the screen kind of seperate from the frame, wouldn't this lend to having dust/pocket lint get into the gears?
