Motorola Razr (2019) has been launched by Lenovo! Is it worth the price?

-

Recently on Thursday at a press event in Los Angeles, Motorola, which is now owned by Lenovo, has unveiled its premium foldable smartphone called the Motorola Razr’ (2019). Introduced in 2004, the Razr lineup has been very much fruitful for the company, and now they launched its latest iteration, let’s take a look at it. 

About Motorola Razr

Display and Design

Display and Design- Motorola Razr

The new Motorola Razr sports a competent 6.2-inch flexible OLED HD+ (876×2142 pixels) screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio screen, and as it’s a foldable phone, it also has a secondary screen which is of 2.7-inches (600×800 pixels). The secondary screen is used as a quick view display in which you can click selfies, see your notifications, control music, or use the google assistant, and just like its predecessor, this year’s Razr also has a prominent chin on the bottom.

In a statement Motorola said,

The Razr uses advanced flexible OLED screen technology and a groundbreaking hinge mechanism that allows the phone to close with both sides perfectly flush

It’s an innovation in the smartphone market game which can help in creating more advanced and capable displays for smartphones.

Camera

Camera- Motorola Razr

Well, the camera is not a strongpoint on the new Motorola Razr, but it’s still pretty capable and can be used, it sports a single 16-megapixel f/1.7 primary shooter on the phone that can also be used a front camera if you fold your device. So, it can act as a front as well as a back camera for the user. There is a 5-megapixel camera inside the Motorola Razr as well, present in the main display notch. It can be used to take selfies when you don’t want to close the phone or need more screen real estate to properly craft your selfie.

With AI capabilities and night sight, you can easily take low light pictures without any worry for proper lighting, and it’s AI algorithms will help you in improving the picture quality of a specific object or person.

Performance and Battery

Performance and Battery - Motorola Rarz

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SOC powers Motorola Razr, paired with 6GB of RAM, and a 2510mAh battery. The processor and amount of RAM are good. Still, I am particularly concerned about the battery on this device even though the battery supports 15W fast charging due to a small battery mAh. Still, it will be interesting to see if the battery can last for a full day or not.

It can last a full day for a light user as Snapdragon 710 soc is a pretty optimized chip, but it is running on Android PIE out of the box, which is now outdated, and it should have been released with Android 10 at this price.

Price and Availability

Price and Availability- Motorola Razr

The sale for the Motorola Razr will start on January 9th, 2020, in the United States of America exclusively on Verizon carrier. Motorola Razr with the wireless carrier will also be available sometime after it’s launch. The availability of it in India is pretty positive, but the date for the launch is unknown.

Price in the United States of America is set at $1,499.99, almost $1,500. Currently, it’s the only competitor in this segment is The Galaxy Fold, by Samsung, which is expensive than Motorola Razr and is priced at $1,980.
