- The new Motorola Razr is the most desirable smartphone that I have seen in years, but this is not a phone that people who care about function and value should buy.
- It has a high price tag, less robust specifications, fewer features, and folding cellphone technology that still has a long way to go before it is as reliable as an ordinary smartphone.
- Instead, the new Razr will appeal to those who value fashion and design. After all, it looks like the iconic Razr from the mid-2000s which has been modernized into an ultra-slim smartphone with a long and foldable screen.

Do you remember the original Motorola Razr from the mid-2000s or not, the new Motorola Razr folding smartphone is the most popular smartphone for years.
It utilizes a nostalgic design without looking out of date. And the way to fold it is the best we've seen on any smartphone that's folded so far because it makes your phone smaller when you're not using it – perfect for freeing up space in your pocket or bag.
And that is a device that you can order in advance immediately, on December 26. And you will find it on store shelves at Verizon stores and Walmart locations in January 2020.
It's also more about appearance than function and value, and of course there are many people who won't object to some of the shortcomings of the new Razr when it looks very good.
