Galaxy Z Flip 5 vs. Motorola Razr Plus flip test: Which will break first?

What you need to know

  • YouTuber MrKeyBrd has begun the Great Folding Test Vol II, testing the Galaxy Z Flip 5 against the Motorola Razr Plus.
  • The test has humans folding and unfolding each phone as many times as it takes to break one, likely lasting several days.
  • Last year, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 lasted over 418,000 folds until the hinge finally broke, doubling Samsung’s lifetime estimates.

Every time a new folding phone is announced, the company making it talks about how it can last hundreds of thousands of folds before problems might start to develop. These numbers were reached by using lab equipment and lots of test units, but what if humans actually tried folding these phones until they broke?

YouTuber MrKeyBrd has officially begun The Great Folding Test Vol II, pitting the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 against the Motorola Razr Plus to see which one breaks first. The test involves two people, each of which will fold and unfold these phones until one breaks. The test takes place over several days with no break in sight, swapping out people when they get tired.
