The Motorola Razr is an inspired effort to liberate the world from the boredom of the dominant glass rectangle phone design.

The Razr isn't just a retro revival; it's also Motorola's first, fascinating attempt at a foldable smartphone. We can't deny that flipping a phone open and closed in 2020 comes with a unique sense of satisfaction, but the compromises Motorola had to make here -- dim, low-res screen, mid-range chipse...

The Razr fails to meet even a basic level of competence when it comes to the camera and battery life. Again, if this phone didn’t fold, I wouldn’t recommend it at one-sixth of its current price. That’s not even the most damning part of it. I could envision rationalizing all of those trade-offs away...

As for the performance, the choice of Snapdragon 710 does feel odd, especially since Samsung has been using flagship chipsets on its foldable devices – Snapdragon 855 on the Galaxy Fold and Snapdragon 855+ on the Galaxy Z Flip. But, Motorola is confident that the phone can handle all the challenges of everyday usage. The target group for the Razr is unlikely to use it for gaming and will primarily use it as a style statement – and, there’s no doubt about the latter.

The Motorola Razr is an inspired effort to liberate the world from the boredom of the dominant glass rectangle phone design. While it does offer a foldable form factor that minimizes its footprint and allows it to fit in smaller pockets, and pulls off some awesome selfies, the phone cuts corners to achieve its diminutive size, with less power, onboard storage, and battery capacity. All told, this would be a serious challenger for the budget flagship crowd; however it costs half as much again as much as leading flagships, putting it beyond all but the most deep-pocketed early adopters.

The Razr isn't just a retro revival; it's also Motorola's first, fascinating attempt at a foldable smartphone. We can't deny that flipping a phone open and closed in 2020 comes with a unique sense of satisfaction, but the compromises Motorola had to make here -- dim, low-res screen, mid-range chipset, purely average battery, lackluster cameras -- make the Razr nearly impossible to recommended. (That it's a Verizon exclusive isn't great either.) Ultimately, the Razr is an undeniably cool phone; it's just one that doesn't act or feel like it should cost $1,500.

A cheap phone in a foldable body

from Wired

I get it. Foldable phones will get dramatically cheaper soon (see: Galaxy Fold versus Galaxy Z Flip), and the Razr is just the start for Motorola. But maybe the company should have considered waiting until the technology matured a little bit more. It doesn't matter that I now have a smaller phone; the phone itself still needs to be good.

The Razr fails to meet even a basic level of competence when it comes to the camera and battery life. Again, if this phone didn’t fold, I wouldn’t recommend it at one-sixth of its current price. That’s not even the most damning part of it. I could envision rationalizing all of those trade-offs away in exchange for a flip phone, maybe, but the experience of actually flipping it open and shutting it is bad. If ever there was a “you had one job” situation with a new phone, this was it.

A big risk that doesn't pay off

from Tom's Guide

The reborn Motorola Razr offers a large display in a futuristic foldable compact form factor, but its myriad shortcomings — from its fragility, to its performance, to its camera and battery life — mean it's not worth the $1,500 plunge.

High price tag, concerns over durability

from Cnet

At $1,499, it doesn't have the fastest processor, the biggest battery or the best cameras. If this phone didn't fold in half, it would be a solid midtier Android phone. But the Razr has something most phones lack: personality. The Razr feels more personal than any phone I've used.

Droid Life

The most unpleasant phone

from Droid Life

Just don’t buy this phone. Don’t consider it. It’s overpriced, the camera is bad, the design is the opposite of what the smartphone world has built up to, it’s no fun to use, and its price is laughable for what you are getting. I’m not sure I could come up with a price where I’d tell you to buy the Motorola Razr.

Old style, new tech

You buy this because of the style – pure and simple. It makes a statement! The ‘floppers’ are LOL at the price, no microSD, no higher IP rating, older SoC, no QI, no 3.5mm audio, and fear, uncertainty and doubt about the foldable plastic OLED screen durability. Frankly, neither the naysayer...More

You buy this because of the style – pure and simple. It makes a statement! The ‘floppers’ are LOL at the price, no microSD, no higher IP rating, older SoC, no QI, no 3.5mm audio, and fear, uncertainty and doubt about the foldable plastic OLED screen durability. Frankly, neither the naysayers nor fanboys have had enough time with this innovative, yet iconic device to really tell. Unlike Motorola that spent 4-years developing it and goodness knows how many millions of dollars to bring us something old, yet new.
