Amazon is opening a brand new Razr box to fold the phone for safer transportation

Amazon is opening a brand new Razr box to fold the phone for safer transportation

The Razr with Motorola’s 5G is sold unlocked. That is, you can buy it directly from Amazon. (It sells for $ 400 from the usual $ 1,399.99 price.) However, when you order a foldable cell phone from Amazon, you’ll see a rare sight when you open the box. Someone else has already opened the new cell phone box. And folded it for you.

(The transaction is also available from Best buy And B & HYou probably won’t get a dirty mitt across your new phone before shipping. )

As the Amazon product list explains:

RAZR was intended to be shipped unfolded. However, the RAZR is folded for better protection of the display. It’s safer, but it may not look as elegant as you might think. We apologize if you see fingerprints on your device, but we guarantee that your RAZR is brand new.

Razr’s unique box that clearly led to this concern.

Both the original Razr and the updated model come in a luxurious display box to get the most out of your phone. (It also acts as a passive speaker, and its shape is designed to amplify the sound from the phone speaker.) However, as part of its flashy design, the Razr itself better favors the flexible 6.2-. It ships in an expanded configuration to show. Inch OLED panel.

However, Amazon seems to be concerned about the safety of shipping a $ 1,399 phone with its huge (and relatively fragile) display exposed to the elements. Therefore, retailers open boxes, remove phones, fold them, reseal them, and ship them to customers.

Is this a casual accusation of a vulnerability in Motorola’s foldable phone? Is Amazon actively and cautiously taking steps to safely ship its products? Who can say

But that’s why all your new phones may be like fingerprints.
