2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 18+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Iconic design, reminiscent of the original RAZR flip phone - the Motorola RAZR is arguably the best designed phone on the market right now
  • It is super thin when unfolded - and when closed, it’s a thick sandwich with a footprint half the size of most handsets
  • At the outside, there is a useful Peek Display which lets you sort through notifications at a glance
  • The hinge works wonderfully and creates an oval cavity for the display when folded, which makes the crease in the middle less significant than other folding phones
  • The fingerprint sensor is at the front chin and is fast and accurate
  • When unfolded, the main display is too tall and it could be difficult to reach the top of the display
  • There's some gap between the screen and the hinge - and overtime dirt or particles might fall into the phone and muck up the gears
  • The display makes audible creaking noises while bending inward, which could be a cause of concern
  • The volume rocker and lock buttons have been slimmed down to fit this narrow edge - they’re subsequently hard to tell apart and tough to press

Display

  • The main foldable display is a bright 6.2 inch OLED, with deep blacks - when unfolded it's very similar to a regular phone screen
  • The outside front-facing 2.7-inch OLED mini screen is useful - it’s good for checking the time and basic notifications and you can use the back camera to take selfies with it
  • The resolution of the main screen is only HD+ and it lacks the crispness seen from sharper displays on phones in this price tier
  • When unfolded, the screen isn’t quite a flat surface, you can feel the hinge and other ridges as you run your finger up and down the screen

Software

  • Simple, uncluttered stock Android UI, with some very useful Moto customisations - Moto phones continue to offer one of the best software experiences on Android

Performance

  • Decent performance from the Snapdragon 710 SOC - basic tasks run smoothly and even high-end games like COD: Mobile and PUBG don’t struggle
  • Though compared to other flagship phones, the Moto RAZR feels underpowered, this chipset is found in phones closer to Rs 15000

Camera

  • The main 16MP camera is just average - images are very soft, often lacking in detail and, especially in low-light, it's hit and miss whether the image will be usable (though, when folded it can take some good selfies)
  • The front 5MP selfie camera is also average and only good for video calls

Battery

  • Decent battery life with the 2510 mAh battery - will last a day with moderate use
  • Sufficiently fast charging with the 18W supplied charger - it takes around 90 minutes to fill up the phone completely

Verdict

  • Motorola's first attempt at foldable phone is all about design and nostalgia and fails at delivering a complete phone experience - the average camera and durability concerns leaves a lot to be desired - if it's a flagship flip phone you're looking for, the Samsung's Z Flip is a better buy at lesser price
