Motorola Razr vs. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: Which Is the Finest Foldable Phone?
The Motorola RAZR in the Samsung Galaxy Z flip are bringing the flip phone back once the dominant phone form factor in the u.s. flip phones largely died in the post iPhone smartphone boom as people wanted larger and larger screens for the web and for YouTube last year Samsung and Chinese firm BOE both developed foldable screens which let phone makers start to build folding phones that collapsed into a pocket but still opened into a big screen the Galaxy fold and while we may X both had their own problems in that they were still large expensive and fragile the razor and the Z flip are the second generation both
Are vertically folding flip phones with big folding screens inside the razor screen is 6.2 inches while the Z flips is 6 point 7 inches the razor is a little bit spring loaded and you can really whip it open and close the Z flip has a stiffer hinge that stays in position at a bunch of different angles that means it opens a little more like a makeup compact it's more flexible but less easy to flip open and especially closed one-handed the Z flip is bigger and thicker but lighter than the razor it still fits in a jeans pocket but it feels a little bit chunkier the Z flip
Also feels sturdier it's screen has a flexible glass cover while the razor screen is just exposed plastic the Z flip comes with a case for the outside while the razor does not the razor has a much bigger 2.6 inch front facing screen when someone calls you you really get notified in a big way the Z flip has a tiny 1 inch screen it still notifies you but in smaller type the razor has a 5 megapixel front facing camera and a 16 megapixel main camera the Z flip has a 10 megapixel front facing camera and 2 12 megapixel cameras on the outside one being ultra wide you can use the
External screen as a viewfinder on both phones but it's much easier to do so on the razor both phones are really expensive the razor cost $1,500 at Verizon and the Z flip cost 1380 from AT&T Sprint or Samsung but only the flip gives you performance to match that price the razor's Snapdragon 710 processor has some trouble with complicated games and more importantly it dropped Wi-Fi in our tests and had weak 4G signal reception the galaxy z flip has a Snapdragon 855 plus processor and it measures up to flagship phones in both speed and signal
Strength we haven't rated the Z flip yet but signs are looking good the razor got only two and a half stars and we don't recommend it because of its performance issues
