Motorola Razr (2020) Review

by birtanpublished on February 9, 2021

The 20/20 Motorola RAZR is the coolest phone we've seen in years at $1500 it's also one of the most expensive the Razer experience starts with a really cool box it's actually a stand displaying the folded open phone like a futuristic monolith it isn't a charging stand though as there's no way to route a power cable through the bottom take the phone out and it feels heavy solid and beautiful Wayne 7.2 ounces and measuring 2.8 3 inches wide it's just barely the maximum width to be comfortable in most hands the back also has a nice texture to it it is completely possible to flip it open with one hand levering your

Thumb in between the two halves giving it a good shove opening it up and then slamming it closed with a satisfying slap open it up and there's a 21 42 by 876 folding AMOLED screen when it's flat the screen has no easily visible seam like the Samsung Galaxy fold does it's also much easier to type on than the unfolded fold as this phone is the width of a normal phone it's properly balanced toward the bottom so it doesn't flip up and out of your hands the 6.2 inch screen is an unusually tall 21 by 9 aspect ratio so Motorola provides an option to crop and zoom videos to fill

The whole screen on the outside there's a 2.7 inch 800 by 600 color external screen it shows time date and battery life it also works as a music controller photo viewfinder and displays notifications when the phone is closed you can control it with Google assistant there's no headphone jack but the phone comes with both a dongle and a premium set of USBC earbuds motorola says the phone is splash resistant but not waterproof the screen and hinge didn't show any damage after flipping it open a thousand times but after 200 flips the phone now makes a loud creaking noise

When it's opened or closed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor the razor's performance lands in between Moto's 250 dollar g7 power and flagship phones like the 800 our Google pixel for playing asphalt 8 you can feel the lower frame rate and slightly gummy controls compared with other flagship devices the phone runs Android 9 with Motorola's usual convenient extensions twist it to launch the camera or make a chopping motion to launch the flashlight Verizon unfortunately adds a bit of bloatware including candy crush and some other

Low-quality games which are thankfully uninstalling the razor has 128 gigabytes of built-in storage but there's no memory card slot for a phone with a 6.2 inch screen the razor has a relatively small 2510 milliamp battery we got just 6 hours and 54 minutes of video playback time on a charge which is much shorter than other leading Android phones Wi-Fi performance is disappointing as well speeds were slower on the razor than the pixel for at every point we tested with the phone dropping signal amir 50 feet from the router the 4g razor has a limited set of LTE bands designed to

Work only on Verizon in the US compared with the pixel we saw consistently were signal on the razor the phone is a Verizon exclusive and uses an e SIM rather than a physical SIM so you can't replace the sim even if you want to on the plus side the phone's earpiece is clear and the device supports EBS the highest quality voice system Verizon has to offer the earpiece doesn't get that loud but it's good enough the bottom of the phone makes for a solid audio chamber giving the speakerphone considerable umph whether the phone is open and closed the phone also supports

Bluetooth 5.0 and bluetooth audio is clear in testing the razor has two cameras a mains 16 megapixel F 1.7 shooter a five megapixel front-facing camera inside the flip neither have optical image stabilization and compared with industry leaders like the pixel 4 and the Galaxy S 10 the main camera not good photos taken with the razor looks soft and indistinct there are more pixels than on the pixel for but the razor's images look like blown-up lower res versions of the same shots taken with the pixel 4 or iPhone 11 as

The light goes down the razor's performance declines further with photos getting dim and noisy some of the razor's flaws can be cured by firmware updates to be sure those camera issues for instance might be software the same goes for the unreliable Wi-Fi but to get it so thin and for it to be able to work without overheating motorola made too many compromises on performance everything here is substandard to the design resulting in a phone that looks and feels like a $1500 statement piece but sure doesn't perform like one
