Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Motorola Razr: The key differences

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Motorola Razr: The key differences

Folding phones are officially here. Anyone longing for that throwback feeling of flipping your phone out to answer a call and snapping it back to hang up has not just one, but two vertical folding phones to choose from. These are the Motorola Razr, which launched at the end 2019, and the brand-new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip earlier this month.

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

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 Razr teardown reveals razor-thin display, painstaking process

Motorola Razr teardown reveals razor-thin display, painstaking process

The Motorola Razr may have beaten the Galaxy Z Flip to the punch but it seems to be plagued by the same first-gen problems Samsung encountered last year. There have been concerns about the foldable clamshell's performance and its durability which, in turn, also raises questions about its repairability. Based on the first-ever teardown of the new Razr, it won't be a walk in the park but, fortunately, it actually ends on a happy note.

Motorla Razr first impressions are unflattering

Motorla Razr first impressions are unflattering

Although the Galaxy Z Flip has been rumored far longer, Motorola beat Samsung to the punch by announcing and launching its reborn Razr clamshell ahead of time. Motorola and parent Lenovo have admittedly been playing around foldables just as long as anyone else so it's hard to say how long the new Motorola Razr has actually been in development. If first impressions are to be taken at face value, however, it might not have been that long.

motorola razr videos leave nothing to chance, notes lumps are normal

In just two weeks, Motorola will try to steal Samsung's thunder by being the first to launch the world's first foldable clamshell smartphone. The motorola razr is, of course, not much of a secret at this point but, unlike Samsung's first foldable attempt, Motorola is giving potential buyers the heads up. The company has just released a couple of promotional videos detailing not just the new razr's features but also a warning not to freak out if they seem bumps and lumps on their phone screen.

Motorola Razr 2019 screen repair price is surprisingly low

Motorola Razr 2019 screen repair price is surprisingly low

There is still some reservations about foldable phones, the ones with flexible screens, and those didn't really go away just because Motorola announced its own take on the trend. The New Motorola Razr, a.k.a. the 2019 Motorola Razr, caught people's attention and imaginations because of the iconic name and because of its different take on the foldable design. Different compared to the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X 5G. It turns out, it's also going to be different in how it will do customer support, particularly for screen repairs.

Motorola RAZR foldable display technique shown in testing

Motorola RAZR foldable display technique shown in testing

Motorola released a video this week showing how they developed the Motorola RAZR, and in the process, they showed the bend. You can see the process they use with the display to push the panel up and out, while said panel remains relatively safe from harm. This seems to bypass the less-than-stellar open-gap situation present with the first wave of Galaxy Fold (review release) devices.

New Motorola Razr is eSIM-only: Here’s what that means

New Motorola Razr is eSIM-only: Here’s what that means

The newest Motorola smartphone Moto Razr 2019 was revealed on November 13, 2019, with no SIM card. No physical SIM card, that is to say. There's SIM functionality in this device, but it's embedded in a piece of hardware soldered to the device's motherboard. That means that you can't just go buying this phone from Verizon then switch over to another carrier with a quick flip of the SIM card - because there is no SIM card.
