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

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.

  1. It's actually very nice to see that Motorola, a company that has been around for so long and struggled so much recently to actually do something as remarkable as this. They know this won't be a top seller, and I don't think that's even the point, they just wanted to show how they can still do something very good.

  2. The one thing I miss about old school flip phones is being open to flip it openly or slam it shut dramatically. What a satisfying gesture. I will not be paying $1500 for this but if this becomes more common and comes down in price and turns out to be the future of smart phones, count me in

  3. What if you want to videocall? Do you have to close the phone in order to use the camera and does it hang up? And if you disable ending the call when closing the phone to videocall, I don't think that's something you want to happen every time, just for video calling. So your messaging app (whatsapp/telegram/Kik) needs to be updated specifically for this phone to support this.

  4. I love my "smart" phone but I miss the convenience of a flip phone. Especially at work. Being able to slide my phone into my pocket and bend at the hip was a plus. Hopefully this idea last and the price will drop. Right now R&D cost are still a factor. Still, I'll want to see how the screen holds up. I'm fairly rough on my phone.

  5. Motorola phone are just rubbish only Moto phone I had that was good was Moto g4 after that g6 plus and wow that was full of faults just carp and Never bought a Motorola since
