Motorola Razr scores 1 out of 10 on iFixit rating
It is not surprising that the Motorola Razr is at the bottom of the table of smartphones that are easier to repair. For iFixit, this was the most complicated smartphone to disassemble that has ever been in the hands of its technicians.
Motorola used a huge amount of glue on the inside of its foldable smartphone that makes it difficult to open. Even if you manage to complete this process successfully, you will still have to be very careful with the inner cables that can be easily damaged.
The complexity of disassembling the Razr is so great that iFixit is impressed by the fact that Motorola only takes $ 299 to replace its screen. Even more so now that it has been discovered that the smartphone’s batteries are attached to the screen.
iFixit highlights the small gap that exists between the hinge and the screen of the Motorola Razr
If you’ve seen videos hands-on from Razr, then you know that when you close your smartphone you notice a small gap between the hinge and the screen. This did not go unnoticed by the experts at iFixit, who warn that this could be the gateway to debris.
If you remember, one of the problems that plagued the first units of the Samsung Galaxy Fold was precisely the entry of debris on its screen. This caused the screen to be easily damaged and if users are not careful, the same could happen to the Motorola Razr.
In short, the Motorola Razr is not a smartphone that you should try to repair at your own risk. In fact, the question remains whether it will be worth having this equipment repaired, so be very careful with it.
