Motorola Razr hands-on: the foldable phone we’ve wanted

  • Published on Nov 14, 2019
  • The Motorola Razr flip phone is back, but now it’s an Android smartphone with a foldable display. The 2019 Razr keeps the same general form factor, but replaces the T-9 keypad and small LCD with a 6.2-inch, foldable plastic OLED panel and Android 9 Pie. It’ll cost $1,499 when it arrives in January of next year.

    You seem disappointed that the screen is plastic; did you expect a foldable GLASS screen?

    It seems amazing. It's smaller, less distracting and keeps the screen safe. The only downside here is only one, mid-tier camera, and high price. Great innovation from motorola

    The call app should have the same button layout as the old razr on the bottom half of the screen.

    It's a perfect phone for anyone who wouldn't care about phone specs but needs an Android. Not for me but I would recommend it to less-enthused friends.
