Engadget Review

The Razr isn't just a retro revival; it's also Motorola's first, fascinating attempt at a foldable smartphone. We can't deny that flipping a phone open and closed in 2020 comes with a unique sense of satisfaction, but the compromises Motorola had to make here -- dim, low-res screen, mid-range chipset, purely average battery, lackluster cameras -- make the Razr nearly impossible to recommended. (That it's a Verizon exclusive isn't great either.) Ultimately, the Razr is an undeniably cool phone; it's just one that doesn't act or feel like it should cost $1,500.
