Motorola Razr Review And Full Details December 2022

After a two-year hiatus, Motorola serves up its third-generation foldable Razr. It’s a slightly different beast than its predecessors that highlights the company’s awareness of – and ability to address – the most prominent pain points of the previous two models; delivering across-the-board hardware improvements while also lowering the price.

There’s something of a loss of identity to the Razr 2022’s design; ditching the iconic chin of the last two generations in the pursuit of a cleaner and better-proportioned layout. However, not everyone will appreciate the jump in size – driven by the shift from a 6.2-inch display to a much larger 6.7-inch notch-free Full HD+ pOLED panel. It’s great for split-screen multitasking and media – thanks in part to HDR10+, DCI-P3, and 10-bit color support. The switch from plastic to UTG (ultra-thin glass) between generations, paired with the most refined take on the modern Razr series’ ingenious teardrop zero-gap folding design, makes for one of the hardest-to-see and feel creases on an inward-folding phone’s screen yet.

One of Motorola’s most popular phones ever is the iconic RAZR V3 from 2004. Considering this, it wasn’t surprising when the company’s foldable Motorola RAZR 2019 was heavily inspired by Moto’s iconic flip phone. Now it is time for the third-generation foldable, modern-day RAZR phone. The Motorola RAZR 2022 was first introduced to the Chinese market, but now it is set to be released in Europe as well. I spent a week with this impressive-looking phone, trying to find out whether it is now polished enough to recommend to more than just hardcore fans of the brand. The RAZR 2022 has a large foldable display that’s almost completely creaseless. The outer display is very functional, and the overall design of the device is pretty stylish. However, the RAZR 2022 does cost €1,199, which is €100 more than its main competitor, the Galaxy Z Flip 4. It does pack the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, but so does Samsung’s offering and the also recently released Motorola Edge 30 Ultra.

After a bit of a hiatus, Motorola continues its efforts in the foldable clamshell niche. The Motorola Razr 2022 is the latest in the line and, undoubtedly, the most polished device to come out of it. It has been official for a good two months or so now and just recently received an international release as well. Although the clamshell form factor is alive and well, in a rather odd development, the Razr 2022 has departed from the iconic Razr design, arguably for the better.

The Razr 2022 no longer features the signature “chin” on the bottom. Instead, its display is much larger and extends all the way to the bottom and top bezels, now complete with a smaller punch hole for the selfie camera. Not only is the Razr 2022 physically refined, but unlike its predecessor, the Razr 5G is now a proper flagship with internals to boot. It sports the top-dog Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, a gorgeous 6.7-inch, 144Hz, HDR10+ display and stereo speakers, to name just a few highlights. Motorola is clearly pulling out all of the stops this time around to create a true flagship-level foldable in line to compete with devices like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 and the Huawei P50 Pocket. Motorola’s pricing for the Razr 2022 certainly matches this ambition, leaving us only with the question of whether the Razr 2022 lives up to expectations. Before we get to any of that, we should take a quick look at the lavish retail box the Razr 2022 ships in.

Unboxing
The Razr 2022 ships in a large, stylish black box with raised lettering on the top and a magnetic lid. The latter is very “clicky” and satisfying to open and close, which is a great reference to the phone’s hinge. The first thing you see in the box is the Razr 2022 unfolded and nestled inside a sturdy plastic tray. Inside the box, you also get a 30W TurboPower Type-C PD charger along with a Type-C to Type-C cable. There is also a funky but functional, two-piece hard, transparent snap-on case for the phone. And finishing off the list of items, we have a SIM ejector and some leaflets. Not the richest retail package around, but not bad either.
