Motorola Razr – first review of VERY expensive phone

Motorola Razr – first review of VERY expensive phone


– The new Motorola Razr
is big-time nostalgia. And at the same time it
has a modern look and feel. But the specs and price, it’s a bit risky what
you’re doing, Motorola. (clock ticking) Back in the good old
days, 2003, 4 and 5, before phones with big displays
started becoming mainstream, you could look pretty damn
cool answering a phone call. Today with a modern phone,
you look not so cool. (sad dramatic music) And it is this coolness from before thing before started to erupt that Motorola wants to resurrect
with the new foldable Razr. Design-wise it’s a different
take on how foldable phones can look than say, Samsung
Galaxy fold and Huawei Mate X. Closed it’s a small phone and it’s more or less
identical with the 2004 model. There’s a small display on the front for answering calls, sending
messages and so on. You can actually do quite a few things with the phone closed. In the bottom we have
the finger print scanner. The hinges look a bit
fragile at first look but when you put your hands on the phone you realize they are well built. The mechanism feels great and solid and Motorola will actually say that it’s a phone you should
treat like any other phone. Unlike Samsung who urges the phone owners to handle the phone with
extra care, extra care. The display is 6.2″
folded out pretty standard compared to basically
all other phones today. The plastic display is folded
very softly in the middle so that you can actually not see the fold, that’s very nice made. However the resolution is rather poor, HD resolution that’s too low on a modern phone with a big display. There’s a bit too much space
around the display for my taste and as the navigation in
android is done at the bottom of the phone there are some
challenges on that front. The big chunk at the
bottom contains the speaker and it’s actually quite a good speaker. (music playing from phone) the main camera is only one
camera, not two or three and the sensor is same
as on most Moto G7 Plus. So it’s a bit outdated. The user interface is classic Motorola, very clean android with a
few of their own features. My favorite chop the hand twice
and activate the flashlight because of the clean android
UI I can accept that there is only a snapdragon 710 chip in the phone. Are you a hardcore gamer it will however, feel a bit on the weak side. What worries me most is the battery capacity 2,510 milliamp hours. There’s a 6.2″ display, we
use the phone for many things when we wake up in the
morning until bedtime. Motorola says is there’s a fine balance between battery and
phone users in general. Maybe because some features
work on the small front display the battery will actually
last for a whole day. The phone only uses eSIM. So if you’re interested in this phone you have to buy it from an
operator that supports eSIM for both voice and data. So mediocre specs but
what about the price? Well not so mediocre $1500 more then the most expensive version
of Iphone 11 Pro Max, and way more then the
best phones on the market. It is a cool looking phone
the new foldable Razr but it is pretty risky to
chart such a high price for a phone with this kind of specs. If I were you I would
wait for the first reviews of the phone to come around before putting my money on this foldable phone. Did you like this video? Then subscribe to our channel and don’t miss out on

  1. Motorola is crazy to charge $1,500. If this was $500-600, I wouldn't even be complaining. At the current price, it won't be selling in any high quantities. Only people I see buying this are people who really want the nostalgia factor.

  2. Hey I'm either going to wish for the Motorola One Zoom or the Xiaomi Mi 9t for christmas but you haven't done any video on the Xiaomi so could you please make one asap or just answer your quick review (how it performs in all the various categories from 1 to 10) right here in a comment, I trust your reviews a lot and what I'm the most curious about right now is how it's gaming performance and antenna compares to the Motorola One Zoom, thx for the reviews!
