Unboxing the Motorola Razr 5G

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

hi i'm stephen winkelmann with pc mag and inside this box is the new motorola razer 5g let's take a look so you're not going to get this box so let's ditch it you will however get this package and it's the same package motorola used last year the packaging is specially designed to serve as a amplifier for the phone's bottom ported speaker inside the box you'll find the phone and

In the back there's a cloth cover case that holds the sim key usbc the usba cable headphone jack adapter because there's no headphone jack on the phone this year and a 15 watt turbo power charging adapter there's also some warranty and regulatory information that you're probably not going to read and that's fine the real trick is getting this back into the box there we go got it at first glance the razor doesn't look much different than

Well the original razor but there are a few changes for starters the zero gap hinge has been improved and has a noticeably stronger clasp motorola claims you'll get 200 000 folds at minimum before you notice any problems that's about five years for a power user and while i can't give you any specifics on my experience just yet i can tell you i've folded and unfolded this phone a lot over the past week um probably should come clean now and tell

You that this is not our original unboxing we've already used this phone for the past week for some testing so you're not going to see any of the cutesy welcome screens or sub screens anything like that i apologize foldage you'll notice a couple changes for starters motorola went with a 7000 series aluminum this year as well as 3d glass there's also a 48 megapixel camera on the front now that has laser auto focus as well

As um quad pixel binning which means it'll sort of take four shots and turn it into one super crisp 12 megapixel shot on the front there's a 2.7 inch display and that got some major software updates for this year as well now you can quickly access your favorite apps open the camera and even use google assistant the goal here is to let you interact in the with the razer in a way that's a little more mindful and again i can't really go into details just yet

But i can tell you the motorola is onto something here the power button has been moved to the left side of the phone this year while the volume rocker remained on the right and a really nice touch here is the volume rocker knows when the phone is folded or unfolded so no matter if it's open or closed up is always up and down is always down the fingerprint sensors move to the back and then on the bottom you're going to

Find the usbc power or charging port as well as the bottom ported speaker and inside you'll see the same 6.2 inch display that was on the original motorola razor there's no visible creases but if you start feeling around you're going to notice a little bit of a dip where the hinge mechanism is the razer 5g ships with android 10 but motorola's told it motorola told us that it would get at least two android upgrades as well as

Its bi-monthly security updates for two years it also has my ux which is my which is motorola's take on stock android and that offers um moto game time moto music actually little game time mobile audio and a ton of useful gestures that you can find on most motorola phones you're probably thinking i'm not seeing a big difference and on the outside you might be right the good stuff is on the inside the new razer supports lte as well as global 5g

So when i say 5g it's just sub 6 which means you're not going to get the super fast millimeter wave speed you'll see on some other phones however if you look at our fastest mobile networks coverage you're probably going to think twice about getting a millimeter wave phone this year in addition to 5g the razer now has a snappy qualcomm 765 g chipset along with eight gigs of ram 256 gigs of storage and there's also an esem this year in addition to the

Sim slot so you can use that for international travel if you're a google phi customer or if you get a verizon sim and decide you want to switch to esa so here's the phone it's also worth noting that the motorola razor doesn't have an iv rating however motorola assures us that it will withstand rain sweat splashes what have you without any damage thanks to a water-resistant coating that's on all the ports as well as all the components

Inside the phone bluetooth 5.0 is on board as is nfc but wireless charging is missing in action unfortunately so how much is the motorola razer 5g good question the razer 5g sells for 1399.99 and will be available on motorola's website as well as at best buy and b h photo you can also pick it up in a t and t mobile stores and while it won't work on verizon's 5g network just yet it will work on its lte network and in the future

It will support verizon's mid and low band 5g networks the razer 5g is available in three colors polished graphite liquid mercury and blush gold and since the razer works globally on 5g it's available worldwide exact availability varies by region and we don't have all the details just yet but stay tuned for our review in the coming week and you should have a little more information then so this is stephen winkelmann with the first look at the motorola razer

5g you
