Motorola Razr 2019: Design
The Motorola Razr 2019 is the first clamshell-style foldable smartphone from Motorola, which was recently launched in India. Unlike Samsung's offering, the Motorola Razr 2019 offers a mid-tier smartphone with a foldable OLED display without any crease.
The smartphone also has a secondary display at the front, which can be used to access notifications, answer phone calls, and to use a camera. As this is a folding smartphone, it is easy to carry and the front display is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Motorola Razr 2019: Hardware Performance
The Motorola Razr 2019 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, which is a mid-tier processor, capable of handling most of the tasks without any issue. This is an octa-core processor with Adreno 616 GPU, that can handle gaming as well.
Additionally, the smartphone offers 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage and there is no way to expand the storage whatsoever. One can play games like PUBG or Fortnite on the Motorola Razr 2019. However, if you want a phone specially for gaming, then the Motorola Razr 2019 is not the right device.
Motorola Razr 2019: Camera Performance
The Motorola Razr 2019 has a single 16MP camera at the back and a 5MP selfie camera at the front. The main camera on the Motorola Razr 2019 can record 4K videos at 30fps and FHD videos at 60fps and also supports EIS and Laser autofocus. Similarly, the 5MP selfie camera at the front supports Face Unlock and can also record 1080p videos.
As per the photos, the 16MP main camera, thanks to the large aperture can take photos with a good depth of field and the image will have a lot of detailing as well. However, at this price, the smartphone should have offered an additional telephoto or an ultra-wide angle lens.
Motorola Razr 2019: Price To Specs Ratio
The Motorola Razr 2019 retails in India for Rs. 1,24,999 and offers 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Compared to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, the Motorola Razr 2019 is a bit expensive and even on the technology front, the Motorola Razr 2019 does not match that of the Galaxy Z Flip, which comes with far superior hardware.
The device is slightly expensive and if you minus the novelty folding part, the smartphone still does not seem to offer a high value-for-money co-efficient. This is definitely an expensive smartphone for sure.
Motorola Razr 2019: Important Features/Highlights
The unique selling point of the Motorola Razr 2019 is its primary folding display. Compared to Samsung's offering, the mechanism used on the Motorola Razr 2019 makes it leave no gap when it is folded and it does not have a crease at the area of the fold as well. Similarly, it also runs on Android 10 OS with stock UI.
If you liked the old-school Motorola Razr, then you might appreciate the Motorola Razr 2019 as well. Otherwise, it does not seem to offer much of practicality, as the screen might break at any time.
Motorola Razr 2019: Verdict
The Motorola Razr 2019 is an expensive smartphone with a foldable display. When compared to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung's offering is better in almost every department. If you want a foldable smartphone from a brand other than Samsung, then the Motorola Razr 2019 is the only device that you can consider. Otherwise, go with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
