The re-imagined Motorola Razr is part flashy technological feat and part practical portability perk, sold at a premium price despite some forgettable specs. If you’re thinking that sounds familiar, then you much have been around for the first Motorola RAZR launch back in 2004! Despite its high price, that RAZR product family would go on to sell 130 million units over the next four years, going down in the history books as the most successful flip phone of all time. Can Motorola capture lightning in a bottle again? I recently got a sneak peek at the company's flexible-display flagship branded simply "razr" - and while my enthusiasm for the foldable category doubtless colors my impression, I came away hopeful for the Motorola brand name for the first time in four years.


MrMobile's Motorola Razr 2019 Hands-On / Motorola Razr 2020 Hands-On was produced following three hours with a Motorola Razr review sample at a Motorola press event in Los Angeles. Preproduction device running pre-release software.

Dear Motorola, Three critical things - *1) Get the price down.* - At a grand or slightly under, it will sell. $1500.00 crosses into the 'bling thing' niche market. Expect the person holding it to also have keys to a Tesla P-Series in their pocket. *2) Form factor vs. battery life* - this is a foregone conclusion that should have been addressed via wireless charging. Packing it with a portable charging cradle that has a 5000+ mah battery inside it probably won't help address point #1, but it makes a hell of a lot more practical sense when you consider the user experience against that asking price. *3) What were you thinking with that camera?* - a huge chunk of the market (predominantly female - hint, hint) has been eliminated by this rudimentary camera setup. There's already a bump, for crying out loud - put something decent in it, and do it *before* you offer this in pink. I look forward to a 2nd generation RAZR that addresses these issues - which is virtually guaranteed by Apple's planned abandonment of a physical charging plug (making wireless charging 'cool' again), and Motorola's recovered R&D expenses via sales profit from the 1st gen RAZR (money doubtless spent by early adopters with more dollars than sense).

Also - Android NINE? Just why? And why is the interface using Android soft buttons when you guys designed the Smart Navigation Bar to work *using the fingerprint sensor* in *THAT EXACT SPOT?*

This is the first phone that has interested me in years. My current phone is 4 years old, and I've seen no reason to run out and replace it. Now I'm certainly not going to pay $1500 for a phone, but give this a year or two, and an affordable used option will certainly be available if not a cheaper new one. So this is definitely on my radar. I loved my original RAZR back in the day, and have missed the flip form factor ever since.

This is the future. A small phone that can be everything is just ideal, even a large screen phone

Honestly...Motorala just killed the iPhone one-piece large phone design in what seems like an almost accidental shot. How the fuck did this happen?

Except for the price - I love this! Only thing I'd change is some more metallic outer finnish. Like a dark blue or something. But damn it's nice.

Very intriguing design. Opening price might be a little bit high, but early adopters are often ready to pay a premium... I guess in mid 2020 it will drop below 1000 bucks, and then it starts to get interesting for more people. I believe that 600 bucks would be the sweet spot for this. Maybe with a cellular contract it will be cheap enough. I'm looking forward to get one as soon as it becomes affordable. Let's wait and see.

Nay Sayers: Premium price, medium performance and no real advantage to a regular phone. Yay Sayers: Nostaolgia Nay Sayers: Old Razr feel more premium looking than this plasticy Razr. Yay Sayers: Nostaolgia, worth any price Me: Wait for next copied version

I'm sorry but in my eyes vertical phones are literally useless the only point I see is to make it more compact when you're not using it. Folding the other way is actually useful because you have a bigger screen

Michael’s so handsome 😍😍
i think developement of the foldayble screen costs so much they had to cut at some corners... to be honest every where. 4g, 6gb ram, bad cpu, bad cam, 120gb without sd slot and so on... and still the price is so high... BUT if i had the money now. i would buy it. new tec in an old phone.

Google should've kept moto and made this the Pixel4. Maybe G kept rights to the hinge patent and uses it for a killer P5 to finally surpass iphone
Battery and price is a a big disadvantage
