One year ago, Motorola announced a new phone that was one of the best examples of taking advantage of cellphone nostalgia.
As we know it today, the new Razr is very different from its predecessor from many generations ago, and its main highlight is the 6.2-inch foldable display.
Approximately six months after the new Razr started shipping and suffered from harsh comparisons to Samsung’s foldable models, it spawned a successor – the Moto Razr 5G.
About The Device
A limited number of outlets have units on hand as of today.
PCMag is one of the outlets that received a demo model, and here is what they had to say about it:
“The Razr 5G’s hinge is still rated for a minimum of 200,000 folds or about five years of use, but Motorola made some tweaks. The biggest difference is that the clasp is a little stronger than on the previous model and feels more like the hinge on an old-school Razr. It also doesn’t pop out when folded. And unlike the last model, we haven’t noticed any creaking noises when opening and closing the phone.”
Reputable tech YouTuber MKBHD also posted a video of the new Razr 5G. In his video, he speaks about many minor changes to the original device, but highlights two of them that he finds more relevant: The chipset, Snapdragon 765G, makes the device 5G compatible, completed by 8GB of RAM.
The YouTuber also spoke about how the outside screen was significantly improved.
Others say that the device is thicker, wider, and marginally shorter than its non-5G predecessor.
Also, the double-Gorilla-Glass backs are a big plus!
