The new Razr looks like it’s 2004 version. Classical forming factors, short dimensions, and the outside screen are inherited from the previous model. The main distinction is in the absence of the button keyboard. A new phone substitutes it with the screen that bends in half in the horizontal.
The main screen is called Flex View. It’s a pOLEd screen with 6.2″ diagonal and 2142х876 resolution. It would be a significant advantage for android users, as the applications are optimized for elongated screens more than too wide ones.
Durability and Performance
Motorola claims that it is sure in the durability of the flexible screen. According to the latest tests from the producer, it says that screen will last for an average time every smartphone lives. There is news about special coverage that protects the screen from physical damage. It is important to highlight that nobody says that the phone is waterproof. However, the company managed to make the fold line invisible.
Like the old phone, new Razor applies double screen technology. It is used to manipulate the applications, look for the information, watch the notifications, and read the messages. The company works with Google to ensure quick switching between the applications of the fold and unfold phone.
The hi-tech and science journalist The Verge has tested the phone. In his article, he estimated it well, admiring good and reliable construction. The company grants clients with outstanding guarantee propositions. During a year, a client has a right to changing the screen. When it is over, the change will cost about $300. It is not expensive if we recall the price for iPhone screen change.
The other features of the smartphone leave much to be desired. Many sites claim that the battery is outdated for today. With the capacity of about 2200 mA/h, the phone can hardly stay charged till the evening. It has only two cameras with 16 and 5 megapixels correspondingly. The phone has only USB-C for connecting with a computer, an eSIM support, and a fingerprint scanner on the lower part. The disadvantages could be less irritating if the price would not be so high. $1500 is the price of the newest iPhone. Also, there is no information about availability in other countries. The news proves that in the USA, it will be sold exclusively in the Verizon network.
To conclude, a new Motorola Razr is more about style and high class rather than functionality. It might be a perfect choice for an average user. With a perfect support team (24 hour access, many languages, including Hindi, Arabic, and Chinese), the company tried to chase the success and popularity of its best model ever. It managed to copy the form, but the content is far from the leading competitors.
