With Motorola going all out with their Razr+ and Samsung’s new Galaxy Z Flip 5 available to pre-order, you may have questions on which of the two foldables’ folding mechanisms will prove to be the most durable. You don’t have to do the research yourself because the Mrkeybrd YouTube channel is running an experiment to see which of the two foldable’s can fold the most.
The Mrkeybrd YouTube channel is live-streaming the folding-unfolding event and as you might imagine, it’s riveting content. Still, they are putting their hands on the line to show if the Galaxy Z Flip 5 or Razr+ will fold the most.
“Smartphone producers seem to think consumers will be impressed by their ratings of 400,000+
folds, performed in a more controlled setting and most likely by a machine designed to fold the
smartphone only in the way it was intended. But machines aren’t human.”
To be fair, they have a point. Human hands don’t operate with the same action, strength, or even angle each time they unfold a phone. We apply different stresses with each action at different speeds and pressures. Whereas machines open and close in the same manner, over and over again.
At the time of writing, both the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Razr+ are still in the game with over 45,000 folds each, needless to say there are signs of tiredness from the human participants which again will affect the action.
Who do you think will come out on top between Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Motorola’s Razr+?
