Motorola Razr

The new Motorola Razr is a foldable phone that’s a throwback to one of the most iconic handset designs of all time: the original Razr V3 that was launched in 2004 … it’s the future wrapped in the past.

We assumed that foldables would bridge the gap between phones and tablets by unfolding horizontally into a wider display. Motorola has other ideas, however, and its design flips open to reveal an elongated 6.2-inch touchscreen that’s just a bit longer than the iPhone 11’s display. So, no, you don’t get much more screen real estate. The interior OLED display is an ultra-wide, cinematic size (2142 Å~ 876 p) in a 21:9 format. Of course, most of the content on YouTube and Netflix is in a more square format. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Razr’s fold-open display doesn’t have a visible seam. The novelty lies in what you can do when the phone is closed down to a pocket-friendly size, as there’s a smaller display on the outside for checking texts, calls, music, emails and such.

The Motorola Razr V3 was released in several variations. Launched in 2004, more than 130 million units were sold, making it one of the best-selling phones ever made.

The 2.7-inch 800 Å~ 600 p front display is far sharper than expected, and makes selfies a joy. While Motorola assures us that the 2 510 mAh battery will last all day, we aren’t sure that will hold up to more strenuous GPS and media-watching activity. However, if the front screen leads users to preview more and open their phone less, that could lend weight to Motorola’s assertion. In many ways, this new handset inherits the old Razr’s initial reputation as a pricey status symbol – though rather than a fashion flex, the new Razr is a design darling. Yes, it’s a big nostalgia play, but it’s also an innovative new direction that smartphones could follow to break out of the black rectangle convention.The Motorola Razr V3 was released in several variations.

The front-facing camera is a 5 MP sensor that’s perched in the top of the unfolded screen. While it’s not as sharp as some phones’ offerings, there’s something neat about shooting a video with the device closed, and then flipping the phone open to switch to the front-facing camera.
