Twenty twenty Motorola Razr is the coolest phone we’ve seen in years. Fifteen hundred dollars. It’s also one of the most expensive. The Razr experience starts with a really cool box. It’s actually a stand displaying the folded open phone like a futuristic monolith. It isn’t a charging stand, though, as there’s no way to route a power cable through the bottom.
Take the phone out. And it feels heavy, solid and beautiful.
Wayne’s seven point two ounces and measuring two point eight three inches wide.
It’s just barely the maximum width to be comfortable and most hands the back also has a nice texture to it.
It is completely possible to flip it open with one hand, levering your thumb in between the two halves, giving it a good shove, opening it up and then slamming it closed with a satisfying slap.
Open it up and there’s a twenty one forty two by eight seventy six folding Emelin screen. When it’s flat, the screen has no easily visible. Seem like the Samsung Galaxy poll does. It’s also much easier to type on than the unfolded fold as this phone is the width of a normal phone.
It’s properly balanced toward the bottom so it doesn’t flip up and out of your hands. The six point two inch screen is an unusually tall 21 by nine aspect ratio.
So Motorola provides an option to prop and zoom videos to fill the whole screen on the outside. There’s a two point seven inch, eight hundred by six hundred color external screen. It shows time, date and battery life.
It also works as a music controller, photo viewfinder and displays notifications when the phone is closed. You can control it with Google assistant. There’s no headphone jack.
But the phone comes with both its dongle and a premium set of USGBC earbuds.
Motorola says the phone is splash resistant, but not waterproof. The screen and hinge didn’t show any damage after flipping it open a thousand times.
But after 200 flips, the phone now makes a loud creaking noise. When it’s opened or close with a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon seven 10 processor raiser’s performance lands in between Bodos two hundred and fifty dollars G7 power and flagship phones like the 800 our Google Pixel for Plain Asphalt.
Eight. You can feel the lower frame rate and slightly Gumee controls compared with other flagship devices. The phone runs Android nine with Motorola as usual. Convenient extensions twisties to launch the camera or make a chopping motion to launch the flashlight horizon.
Unfortunately, adds a bit of bloatware, including Candy Crush and some other low quality games which are thankfully uninstall lable. The Razr has 128 gigabytes of built-In storage, but there’s no memory card slot for a phone with a six point two inch screen.
The Razr has a relatively small two thousand five hundred and ten mil AMP battery.
We got just six hours and 54 minutes of video playback time on a charge which is much shorter than other leading Android phones Wi-Fi.
Performance is disappointing as well. Speeds were slower on the razor than the pixel for at every point. We tested the phone dropping signal a mere 50 feet from the router. The 4G Razr has a limited set of LTE bands designed to work only on Brize IT in the US.
Compared with the pixel we saw consistently worse signal on the Razr.
The phone is a horizon exclusive and uses an E sim rather than a physical SIM. So you can’t replace the SIM even if you want to.
On the plus side, the phone’s earpiece is clear and the device supports even, yes, the highest quality voice system Horizon has to offer. The earpiece doesn’t get that loud, but it’s good enough. The bottom of the phone makes for a solid audio chamber, giving the speaker phone considerable whether the phone is open or closed.
The phone also supports Bluetooth 5.0 and Bluetooth audio was clear and testing.
The Razr has two cameras. Amane 16 megapixel F one point seven shooter and a five megapixel front facing camera inside the flip.
Neither have optical image stabilization. And compared with industry leaders like the Pixel four and the Galaxy s 10, the main camera is not good. Photos taken with the razor looks soft and indistinct.
There are more pixels than on the pixel four, but the raiser’s images look like blown up lower res versions of the same shots taken with the Pixel four or iPhone eleven. As the light goes down, the raiser’s performance declines further, with
photos getting dim and noisy. Some of the raiser’s flaws can be cured by firmware updates. To be sure, those camera issues, for instance, might be software. The same goes for the unreliable Wi-Fi. But to get it so thin and for it to be able to.
Work without overheating. Motorola made too many compromises on performance.
Everything here is substandard to the design, resulting in a phone that looks and feels like a fifteen hundred dollar statement piece, but sure doesn’t perform like one.
