The Motorola Razr Plus breaks in this torture test, but it’s not what you think


What you need to know

  • Zack Nelson’s latest durability test reveals a void behind the Motorola Razr Plus’ external screen.
  • This causes the outer display of Motorola’s latest foldable flip phone to shatter when bent from the back.
  • Nonetheless, the phone appears to be able to withstand copious amounts of dust and sand.

Motorola’s Razr+ has given consumers one of the biggest external screens on the market to date, vaulting the phone ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. It is one of the handset’s main selling points, but it also happens to be its weakest link.

YouTuber Zack Nelson (aka JerryRigEverything) returns with another of his routine durability tests, this time putting the Motorola Razr+ through its paces. As expected, the main screen is fragile, like every other foldable phone that went through this specific regimen.
