Motorola Razr 2022 for review

Motorola made the foldable 2022 Razr go global this week and is now arriving at headquarters to replace it in the review queue. It comes with the flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, a foldable 1080p OLED with a 144Hz refresh rate and dual cameras on the outside.

We can't wait to test it out and go through the review process, but first here's what impressed us when we took it out of the box.

Close the package opens to reveal the phone itself, opened. Underneath we find a 30W charger, a USB-C to USB-C cable, and some reading material on warranty and safety. The box itself closes again with a sharp magnet.

The Razr itself is a very wide handset, wider than its predecessor and main rival - the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4. First impressions are that it will be too far to be comfortable, but maybe that will grow on us after a few days.

The phone folds neatly, and the device clicks nicely, with a hinge that breaks easily. It's slightly lighter than the P50 Pocket or Z Fold4, and it's also easier to open.

The wraparound screen has the same 2.7” diagonal as on its predecessor Razr 5G but much larger than its competitors. And there's still enough room for a dual camera and an LED flash.

This is a huge improvement, and with a UI that once again allows selfies to be taken with the main camera, more people can fit into the frame, thanks to the 13 MP ultrawide angle camera with AF.

The inner camera that sits inside the punch hole has a 32MP sensor now. The panel itself looks pretty but the bezels are quite thick, reducing the futuristic feel a bit.

The Razr 2022 feels like a proper flagship that on paper has every chance of beating the Galaxy Z Flip4 and even the Huawei P50 Pocket for the title of most capable clamshell. We'll have a verdict once we're ready with the reviews, so stay tuned!
