Motorola flagship with Snapdragon 865 confirmed by Verizon’s 5G boast

Motorola flagship with Snapdragon 865 confirmed by Verizon’s 5G boast

The new and foldable Motorola Razr may have been a tad disappointing in some aspects but, fortunately for fans of ol' Moto, the year has just begun for the company. It still has quite a few more phones to launch aside from the new members of its mid-range Moto G family. Given the company's previous X and Z models, however, there might have been some reservations if it can and will still release a flagship worthy of rubbing shoulders with the market's best. Based on Verizon's latest brag, it will, at least as far as 5G speeds go.

Motorola Razr 2020 could add 5G and not much else

Motorola Razr 2020 could add 5G and not much else

It was supposed to one-up the likes of Samsung and Huawei in the nascent foldable smartphone market but the new Motorola Razr, a.k.a. the Motorola Razr 2019, ended up being more of a disappointment. The $1,500 phone felt overpriced for its specs and build quality, the latter of which the company continues to refute. Just like the first batch of Galaxy Folds, however, these are growing pains that Motorola could use to improve its next iteration. But based on non-final statements from Motorola designers, it may not be the case yet again.

Motorola Razr reported peeling at the fold

Motorola Razr reported peeling at the fold

Motorola says that creases and bumps are only normal on its first foldable phone but we doubt it would make the same claim about peeling. The former set of blemishes is pretty much just that but a peeled layer literally destroys the phone and prevents further use. That is the rather unfortunate experience of at least one Motorola Razr owner that also calls into question the long-term viability of the company's already embattled attempt at salvation.

Motorola Razr teardown is full of red flags

Motorola Razr teardown is full of red flags

Motorola's Razr foldable launched a little over a week ago, and you know what that means: it's time for iFixit to tear it down. Attempting a teardown of a foldable device is something that's a bit more complex than a teardown of a more standard smartphone, but regardless, iFixit was determined to get inside this phone and see just how repairable it might be.

As expected, Samsung just got up on stage at its Unpacked event and revealed the Galaxy Z Flip, it's latest foldable phone. The Z Flip actually led the show, with Samsung diving right into the announcement. Though the portion of the presentation devoted to the Z Flip was somewhat brief, we're left feeling like the company has launched an all-out assault on Motorola.

Motorola Razr getting a gold model this spring

The Motorola Razr launched at Verizon last week, but if you find that you're unexcited by the standard black color scheme the phone ships with, here's some good news: Motorola has announced that a new "Blush Gold" model is on the way. Of course, we already had some idea that such a version was in the works, thanks to leaks that showed off the new color before Motorola had a chance to announce it.

Motorola Razr torture test includes pocket sand and razors

The new Motorola Razr, a folding smartphone version of the flip phone that was once very popular, has been the subject of speculation and criticism following a recent folding test. Though Motorola has dismissed the results of that test as less than valid due to the method used, a new torture test has raised its own concerns, particularly when it comes to exposure to dust and grit that may work its way into the folding phone.

Motorola dismisses Razr fold test controversy: Official response

As it did with the Galaxy Fold, CNET recently conducted a folding test with the Motorola Razr, a recently announced clamshell-style folding smartphone that features a flexible display and hinge. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, Motorola's new handset only lasted for 27,000 folds before the hinge could no longer close. Now the company has responded and it isn't worried about the results.

Motorola Razr gives up after being folded 27,000 times [UPDATE]

There are two things that worry consumers when it comes to this new breed of foldable phones. Okay, three if you include the price tag. Given the Galaxy Fold's initial blunder, there are concerns about the durability of the flexible display. And given the number of times the device has to be folded and unfolded, there are also worries about how much action the hinge can see. Based on a teardown of the Motorola Razr, the phone's foldable screen isn't as fragile as Samsung's first attempt. The hinge, on the other hand, might be a different matter.

Motorola One 2020 could be the long-overdue Moto flagship

Motorola has long been dormant in the smartphone scene. After its Moto Mods and Moto Z phones died a silent and slow death, receded into the background only to surprise the crowd with the foldable Razr revival. Now it seems to be taking advantage of that attention and will be flooding the market with not a few smartphones, including what may finally be worthy of being called a premium Motorola flagship phone.
