Motorola Razr gives up after being folded 27,000 times [UPDATE]

There are two things that worry consumers when it comes to this new breed of foldable phones. Okay, three if you include the price tag. Given the Galaxy Fold's initial blunder, there are concerns about the durability of the flexible display. And given the number of times the device has to be folded and unfolded, there are also worries about how much action the hinge can see. Based on a teardown of the Motorola Razr, the phone's foldable screen isn't as fragile as Samsung's first attempt. The hinge, on the other hand, might be a different matter.

After its Moto Mods and Moto Z phones died a silent and slow death, receded into the background only to surprise the crowd with the foldable Razr revival.

Motorla Razr first impressions are unflattering

Although the Galaxy Z Flip has been rumored far longer, Motorola beat Samsung to the punch by announcing and launching its reborn Razr clamshell ahead of time.

Moto G8 and G8 Power leaks show what should have already been

At a time when Motorola was having difficulty keeping up with high-end phones, it made a name for itself with its budget-friendly Moto G and Moto E families. Since then, however, it has found itself struggling again, this time against Chinese OEMs who offer phones at the same price point but often with higher specs. It seems that Motorola may have started slipping up again because it is only now that the Moto G8 and Moto G8 Power are being leaked, months after the others in the series launched.
