Motorola Razr 2019 XT2000-1

While the Motorola Moto G Power series are unbeatable in terms of its battery capability, its sibling from the same company, Motorola Razr is winning hearts by retaining its classic Razr look with a twist of foldable display. The effort of creating this model itself deserves accolades as it gave birth to an iconic phone of all time with a folding display that obviously works very different as compared to the Samsung Galaxy Fold. It is undeniable to state that this product is the first of a new generation of folding devices which opens vertically into a standard regular phone shape as compared to Samsung Galaxy Fold types of phones that open horizontally into a mini-tablet. Motorola Razr comes in with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 processor as opposed to the flagship-worthy advanced Snapdragon 855. As gamers might consider this as a drawback, it should be noted that there is enough graphical power incorporated within this phone to accommodate most Android games. As far as the battery is concerned, Razr comes in with a rather small 2500 mAh battery. While it is not quite optimistic to expect this kind of small battery to hold a long-lasting battery in a day while powering two screens simultaneously, Motorola decided to address the issue at hand by explaining that the smaller outer display might alter user’s usage habits and leads to battery conservation.
In addition, the 6.2 inches display provides a better user viewing experience. Even though the way the phone folds do reduces the total size that can fit into a user’s pocket but it does give a regular 6.2 inches display vibe. The biggest strength of this model has to be its design. In comparison to Galaxy Fold, Razr fits everything together just well when it’s shut close. There is no big gap for debris to get stuck in and it is definitely user-friendly in that sense. In terms of its display, it comes in with a special hinge that has been especially designed to allow the display to remain curled even when it is closed. This prevents permanent crease on the display due to the folding, making it totally different from Galaxy Fold. The Motorola Razr can be considered to be quite limited when it comes to its camera because it does not carry an array of cameras. This smartphone has a 16MP sensor camera just below the outer 2.7” OLED display and this is expected to be used for everything including selfies and videos as the camera in the inside is just 5MP. This might be quite disappointing for selfie-lovers out there.

On Tuesday at the Samsung Unpacked event in San Francisco, the Galaxy Z Flip debuted which also has a flip phone design with a foldable screen. The Razr and Galaxy Z Flip have as much in common, like their tall 21:9 ratio screens, as they do different, like the fact that Motorola's foldable screen is plastic while Samsung uses a piece of ultra-thin glass. The Razr costs $1,499, while the Z Flip costs $1,380. In terms of specs, the Z Flip has a more powerful processor, two rear cameras, Android 10, a bigger battery and twice the storage. The Razr uses an eSIM and is sold as an exclusive on Verizon. The Z Flip has a SIM card and can be bought on any major US carrier.

2020 Moto Razr Teardown! - Better Hinge than the Z Flip?
Source: JerryRigEverything English
Its time to take apart the new Motorola Razr smartphone. The nostalgic blast from the past gets the full 'take apart' treatment, and you'll be suprised at how simple the hinge is. The Razr's components are all pretty unorganized inside, at first glance. But once we get to the hinge, its the most simple swivel weve seen yet! Let do you think it'll hold up better over time when compared to the complex internals workings of the Samsun Galazy Z Flip?

Source: Techradar English
The Motorola Razr is an inspired effort to liberate the world from the boredom of the dominant glass rectangle phone design. While it does offer a foldable form factor that minimizes its footprint and allows it to fit in smaller pockets, and pulls off some awesome selfies, the phone cuts corners to achieve its diminutive size, with less power, onboard storage, and battery capacity. All told, this would be a serious challenger for the budget flagship crowd; however, it costs 50% more than the leading flagships, putting it beyond all but the most deep-pocketed early adopters.

Motorola RAZR Review: 2004 Is Back (For Better Or Worse)
Source: MrMobile English
In 2004, Motorola released a cellphone that was harder to use, less comfortable to hold, and more expensive than almost any cellphone that came before it. Yet, the Motorola Razr V3 became the best-selling clamshell flip phone of all time – mainly because no one had ever seen anything quite like it. Fast-forward sixteen years … and it’s surprising just how much the Motorola Razr 2020 has in common with its progenitor. The new Moto Razr features the same aggressive lines; the same pronounced chin; there’s even a retro mode that emulates the original (complete with “Hello Moto” ringtone!). The trouble? This new Motorola Razr for 2020 is still not a very good phone. The question: whether that will matter to the target audience.

I wish I could tell you exactly where I think the Motorola Razr went wrong, but there are too many options to choose from. It’s the first of a new generation of folding devices that open vertically into a regular phone shape instead of horizontally into a mini-tablet like Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. That means Motorola had the benefit of learning from earlier missteps from the Fold and a very few other devices, but it still makes too many mistakes of its own.

The return of the RAZR signals a turning point for Motorola. Once responsible for the most desirable phone on the market, this new incarnation pays its respects to that 2004 precursor, while also showcasing some of the most cutting-edge technology available on a smartphone. The design and engineering at play are unquestionably impressive and this is the first foldable phone you'll actually be able to buy in the truest sense of the term. The main question is whether or not the exclusivity and desirability of this new entrant into the foldable market will make up for a high price tag and middling internals.

The Razr 2019 is a phone brimming with nostalgia and this is both a positive and a negative. Like the Galaxy Fold, the Razr 2019 feels like a first-gen product and will likely only be for a very select few. Due to way it folds you're not really getting anything over-and-above a regular 6.2-inch phone – aside from the fact it's very small in your pocket. Is this enough of a benefit to forego a truly high-end, multi-camera system and battery life that won't need babying? I am yet to be convinced. What I can say with confidence is that this is a gorgeous, fantastically well-built smartphone that feels a lot more complete than the Galaxy Fold. The way the display folds without leaving a huge crease on the display is a massive plus for me.

With the eSIM limitations, the hefty price tag, and the scarce worldwide availability, we doubt many people will be getting the new Razr, and it is more a proof of concept rather than the next best-selling flagship. But in spite of its issues, imperfections, and concerns - the new Razr makes two things right. It plays with nostalgia very successfully and shows how a foldable phone, not a tablet, should look like. Three of these Razrs take up as much space as only one iPhone 11 Pro Max.

The phone supports fast charging via its USB-C port, but of potential concern is the meagre 2510mAh battery. It may prove to be plenty given the small front screen, low resolution and efficient processor, but it's a small battery even compared to many mid-range phones.

Ultimately, the specs will make the Motorola Razr a hard sell. Internally, it’s an incredibly mid-range device. Externally, it’s an excellent folding phone that may prove enjoyable to use. Considering it costs $1,499.99 USD (roughly $1,987.34 CAD), it’s significantly more expensive than almost every other device available on the market.

Moto doesn’t think you’ll need to use that warranty though. It says it went to extra lengths to protect the screen by adding a special coating that makes it splash-proof and more resistant to scratching than most plastic OLED displays. We’ll have to test these claims when we get our review unit.

The Motorola Razr 2020 is undeniably better than its predecessor, solving the issues of limited storage and packing in 5G connectivity, while Motorola has tweaked the design to make it sleeker. On the other hand, this is still a restricted foldable phone because it doesn’t offer the best tech or design on the market – and when you’re spending well over $1,000 or £1,000 on a phone, you’re likely to be disappointed with that.

If you can accept the tradeoffs linked to a folding design, the Razr 5G is a decent effort from Motorola. This phone has bags of style and brings many practical advantages.

45% Motorola Razr 2020 Review: Win some, lose some
Source: Phone Arena English
Motorola’s reinvigorated desire to bring back a classic was timed perfectly with the advent of foldable phones. In other words, the first Motorola Razr was an intriguing proof of concept that had some shortcomings but ultimately resulted in the first modern clamshell foldable phone. There’s a new Moto Razr out now, with 5G support and quite a few changes over the first Moto Razr that was unveiled in 2019, but are those changes enough to justify the $1399 price tag, especially with more competition lurking around the corner? Surely, the new Razr is a bit more affordable than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, but is it the better device?

Moto Razr 5G First Impressions: Do a Glass Body and Powerful Specs Give This Razr an Edge Over Other Foldables?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
To sum it up, although on the surface the Razr 5G looks like just an incremental upgrade, it feels like a significant one after using this phone for a short while. It is not as underpowered as its predecessor and is even more stylish. The vertical hinge also makes it relatively practical for everyday use. Sadly, at Rs. 1,24,999, it's still out of reach for most people, and its durability is yet to be established. If you are the kind of person who is bored of conventional phones, or who just loves attention, you might want to check out the Razr 5G.

Motorola RAZR 5G Quick Review: Second Time’s The Charm?

However, the lower resolution main display, non-flagship processor as well as seemingly weaker cameras might be a deal-breaker for some, but we’ll have to see how those features fare in our full review before we pass our full verdict.

78% Motorola Razr 2020 review: The iconic flip phone has done it again, this time with 5G
Source: CNet English
The new Motorola Razr 2020 addresses most of the issues I had with the Razr (2019) that came out in February. Overall it's a better phone. The new Razr gets a slew of upgraded specs, but lacks the top of the line ones found in the Motorola Edge Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. But neither of those phones can fold into something incredibly small.

Motorola Razr 5G Review: This Is My Next Phone
Source: MrMobile English
It’s a tired trope of the tech world to say that “the sequel is what version one should have been.” But in the case of one of the most famous brands in mobile phone history, you can’t help but wonder what might have happened if last year’s Motorola Razr … had been the Motorola Razr 2020 instead.

Motorola Razr 5G hands-on review
Source: Phone Arena English
Foldables are rapidly evolving, and just as the Galaxy Z Fold2 is superior to the original Fold, so too is the second Razr from Motorola. The Razr 5G from 2020 comes with higher-grade internals, improved materials, and mechanics, and software refinements to make better use of the external display.

80% Motorola Razr (2020) review: Flip out over the 5G follow-up
Source: Pocket Lint English
The 2020 Razr might not be a device with mainstream appeal like the original from 15 years ago - plus the incoming glut of folding phone competitors is going to further challenge it - but nonetheless it's an exciting piece of technology that stands out for more of the right reasons than the wrong ones. But do you really need a folding phone? Probably not.

80% Motorola Razr 5G

Motorola's Razr 5G is a welcome antidote to the monotony of the generic glass sandwich. It's an improvement upon its predecessor in every way, with faster performance, better cameras, longer battery life, 5G, and more. And with Motorola's enhancements to the Peek Display, it has the possibility to genuinely change the way you use your phone.

Motorola Razr 5G: A Sharp Folding Phone Reboot For 2020 [Hands-On]
Source: MrMobile English
In November 2019, Motorola reinvented its legendary Moto Razr clamshell as a bleeding-edge foldable smartphone – a perfect storm of nostalgia and technological experimentation that had me immediately promise to buy a Razr of my own! But as a first-generation foldable, the reborn Razr carried compromises: it was very expensive, locked to a single carrier (Verizon), and early experiences with some review devices cast doubts upon its dependability. All it took was some stiff Samsung competition – in the form of the Galaxy Z Flip clamshell – to render the Razr 2019 something of an also-ran.

Comment

Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

PowerVR SGX540:

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 616: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 710) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. According to Qualcomm up to 30% faster than the previous generation (Adreno 512 in the Snapdragon 660). Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Qualcomm Adreno 620: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 765 and 765G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2. The 765G variant is 10% faster than the one integrated in the 765 and 20% faster than the Adreno 618 predecessor.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z2480: SoC with an integrated single core Atom processor clocked at up to 2 GHz

Qualcomm Snapdragon:

SD 710: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2.2 GHz cores in a cluster and two power saving cores) and a rather slow Adreno 616 GPU. Manufactured in a modern 10 nm process.

SD 765G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 475 cores (one fast ARM Cortex-A76 prime core at up to 2.4 GHz, one A76 gold core at 2.2 GHz and 6 small ARM Cortex-A55 cores at up to 1.8 GHz). As one of the first SoCs it also integrates a 5G modem (Snapdragon X52 up to 3,7 / 1,6 Mbps down- and upload, mmWave and Sub-6 support). The processor is manufactured in the modern and energy efficient 7nm EUV process at Samsung.
