Motorola Razr 2019: Is This $1500 Folding Phone From The Future Or The Past?

The re-imagined Motorola Razr is part flashy technological feat and part practical portability perk, sold at a premium price despite some forgettable specs. If you’re thinking that sounds familiar, then you much have been around for the first Motorola RAZR launch back in 2004! Despite its high price, that RAZR product family would go on to sell 130 million units over the next four years, going down in the history books as the most successful flip phone of all time. Can Motorola capture lightning in a bottle again? I recently got a sneak peek at the company's flexible-display flagship branded simply "razr" - and while my enthusiasm for the foldable category doubtless colors my impression, I came away hopeful for the Motorola brand name for the first time in four years.


MrMobile's Motorola Razr 2019 Hands-On / Motorola Razr 2020 Hands-On was produced following three hours with a Motorola Razr review sample at a Motorola press event in Los Angeles. Preproduction device running pre-release software.

  • Except for the price - I love this! Only thing I'd change is some more metallic outer finnish. Like a dark blue or something. But damn it's nice.

  • Very intriguing design. Opening price might be a little bit high, but early adopters are often ready to pay a premium... I guess in mid 2020 it will drop below 1000 bucks, and then it starts to get interesting for more people. I believe that 600 bucks would be the sweet spot for this. Maybe with a cellular contract it will be cheap enough. I'm looking forward to get one as soon as it becomes affordable. Let's wait and see.

  • I'm sorry but in my eyes vertical phones are literally useless the only point I see is to make it more compact when you're not using it. Folding the other way is actually useful because you have a bigger screen

  • i think developement of the foldayble screen costs so much they had to cut at some corners... to be honest every where. 4g, 6gb ram, bad cpu, bad cam, 120gb without sd slot and so on... and still the price is so high... BUT if i had the money now. i would buy it. new tec in an old phone.

  • The StarTac and the Razr V3 at their time were cool, edgy, and innovative but NEVER this expensive... I even remember picking up the Razr V3 in an aluminum box that included a leather case, pretty cool stuff yet never as expensive.

  • nice phone, and very compact. I don't know about the price on itself loose from model and brand. Two years ago most of Belgians stand in line for an Apple that cost about 1000,00 euros. I don't think today we still have a 1000 bucks to spend on a smartphone. There were other 'security' reasons why people wanted so badly to spend a 1000 euros on an Apple phone. That is all gone today. A budget of 600 euros for a smartphone gets exceptional. Still very sleek machine.

  • +MrMobile While the shortcomings of the original Razr are true phones where used for a very different purpose in 2004. Calling, texting, and some photo snapping was about all you could do. In 2020 phones are completely different altogether. Trying to sell a phone part enahnced form factor, part nostalgic piece is a tough pill for $1,500. Maybe this will sell well, Im not sure how though when specs are the main selling point of handsets these days.
