Digital Camera World Verdict

The Motorola RAZR (2022) is a powerful folding phone. While it doesn't best Samsung in the design and durability department, and its camera misses out on the foldable top spot, its larger cover screen and the upgrades Motorola makes to Android are meaningful highlights that help it hold its own.

The Motorola RAZR (2022) hopes to mark the end of Samsung’s monopoly over the world of folding phones, along with recent contenders like the OPPO Find N2 , Find N2 Flip, and Honor’s Magic Vs. Specifically, it’s a flip phone, so sports a nostalgic clamshell style, going toe to toe with the Galaxy Z Flip 4, which we loved in our time with it. 

But this isn’t the first time Motorola’s launched a RAZR phone. A naughties icon, the original RAZR felt like a slice of the future when it first hit the scene in 2005, and when folding screen phones debuted in 2017, the RAZR was resurrected once more.
