Motorola Razr hands-on review: A $1,500 blast from the past

[2019.11.14, Thu 05:05] Motorola insists the new Razr wasn't an attempt to bring the company's Razr V3 flip phone back from the dead, but came about organically based on user polls and research showing that people wanted a more pocketable phone. Especially one that looks so much like the Razr V3. From its external display, to the Razr thinness, and even the distinctive chin which now houses the antenna and a speaker, the new Razr is reminiscent of the classic when closed. Motorola has taken some, but they've declined to specify how many flip cycles, or open and close motions, the Razr can handle. The company did describe the hinge's bi-stable, "Zero-gap" design, which Motorola says it aimed to make "Assistive, reliable, and durable." The moving pieces in the hinge make the Razr feel stable when closed and when open. Otherwise, it's essentially a regular smart phone in a Motorola Razr form factor that looks different and nostalgic, while also achieving a bit of a futuristic look. With a hefty price tag, internals that underwhelm, and no other groundbreaking features to speak of, the Motorola Razr relies a lot on design and nostalgia to win over fans. After the first year, Motorola will also offer screen replacements for $300. In the box, you'll receive a set of Denon earbuds, a braided cable, and a cradle that can hold the Razr and amplify the sound.
