All seems a deja vu of a the similar situation a year ago when Galaxy Fold models sent to analysts were broken. The phone was delayed for 5 months while Samsung found a solution.

Even the latest foldable phones are showing their problems.

The Galaxy Z Flip’s screen looks like it’s plastic, not glass

Over the weekend the YouTube channel JerryRigEverything questioned the Galaxy Z Flip screen that Samsung says has a glass coating on it. In a hardness test, JerryRigEverything found that the screen of the latest Samsung phone scratched as if it were plastic rather than glass. But during a presentation conference last week, Samsung said that this is the first super thin glass phone ever made that Samsung called: “Ultra Thin Glass”.

The company’s claims sparked hope among enthusiasts that the Galaxy Z Flip would not have the Galaxy Fold problems. One thing is for sure, the Galaxy Z Flip looks more stable than the Galaxy Fold.   Samsung has also offered to replace the phone display for the first time for 119 dollars.

Motorola Razr Can Broke

Another folding screen phone is breaking. Input technology website said the phone’s screen was disconnected from the body and completely damaged after a few days of use. The site does not know how the damage was done but posted some photos to confirm its claims. Motorola has not commented on the problem.

But all this shows why Motorola and Samsung have been reluctant to share their devices with tech analysts. Motorola shipped some models only after the phone was available to consumers while Samsung left Galaxy Z Flip in their hands for only 24 hours.

Motorola’s problems are more serious than Samsung’s. But the lesson was learned from this situation: it’s too early for a folding screen phone!
