Motorola clearly has no faith that Razr owners know how to take care of their new folding phones.
With the Razr now
Available for pre-order, the company released a lot of videos on its YouTube page. From unpacking the phone to highlighting all the features, Motorola does not want to miss anything.
But the best is a quick 42-second video with instructions on how to keep your Razr in the best shape. What makes sense, considering that the phone costs 1,500 dollars and is available in a few weeks.
It is very obvious why the company decided to take precautions before launching the Razr.
Samsung's Galaxy Fold, the company's first folding smartphone that sells for 1,980 dollars, began to affect technology reporters who had early access to the phone.
Some accidentally took off the protective layer, which resulted in damage to the screen. Not only because he was already dating alone, but because he looked like a screen saver. For others, the phone broke down from standard use after a few days.
Samsung delayed the launch of the Fold from April to September. In those months, the company said it made a variety of design improvements, such as extending the upper protective layer, strengthening the hinge area and including additional metal layers under the screen to "reinforce protection."
Therefore, we cannot blame Motorola for making an additional effort to protect itself and its customers. But probably mostly in itself.
In the video
Motorola lets you know that there is a protective layer on the phone. So, like, don't take it off. And you should not panic if there are hits on the screen since the "Screen is made to bend".
The video also points to some more obvious tips such as wiping it with a damp cloth when it is wet and avoiding sharp objects.
But my personal favorite is:
"Close the phone before putting it in your pocket or purse."
If you are throwing your phone over 1,000 dollars in your bag without folding it to protect the screen, then you should not buy such an expensive mobile.
