YouTuber Mrkeybrd pitted the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 against the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra, also known as Razr+, in a multi-day live stream. A few days and more than 400,000 folds later, the Great Folding Test Vol. II now has a winner.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 lasted by far the longest with 401,156 folds. While there were a few issues along the way – after around 223,000 folds, the hinge lost its ability to maintain semi-closed angles. Nevertheless, the Samsung cell phone cracked the 400,000 mark in the end.

Samsung officially advertises only 200,000 folds, which is tested by machine. 200,000 folds is 100 per day for 5 years. Incidentally, the video explains that it is more difficult to carry out the test by hand. Humans don’t fold nearly as precisely as robots, which work cleanly, with perfect alignment, and consistent force.

For comparison: The Motorola Razr 40 Ultra failed much earlier – after only 126,266 cycles it was over. After around 44,000 folding processes, the first problems even appeared. And that’s despite the fact that the hinge on the Motorola cell phone is said to be designed for 400,000 folds, twice as many as Samsung claims.

In the video, Mrkeybrd also talks about the reasons the Razr gave up so early. A key point is how people use smartphones and that “humans break things faster”.
