After a long wait, we finally have news about the Motorola Razr for 2020. This nostalgic flip-style phone harkens back to the design of early-to-mid-2000s flip phones. However, it’s playing with all the toys and power you’d expect a modern smartphone to have.

The clamshell design has been squared off in this phone, making it comparable in profile to a Gameboy Advance SP. In many respects, it’s similar to the company’s 2019 Razr, which pioneered the return of the Razr line.

The 2020 phone, which was unveiled on September 9, is likely to release sometime around November. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s difficult for manufacturers to give exact release dates right now.

However, Motorola has promised the phone will be out “this Fall,” meaning November is the latest you can expect it to arrive. The question remains, though: is it worth the price?

The Price

When the stylish flip phone does arrive, it will retail for a whopping $1,300, making it pricier than some of Apple’s flagship iPhones. That’s a hefty price tag, which has many asking, “will it be worth it”?

That’s what we’re here today to answer. At first glance, this phone is working with a lot of power, which could explain the price tag.

Under the hood, the Razr 2020 is running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chip set, which is top of the line. This set allows for the phone to use 5G signals, making it a very future-proofed phone.

Moreover, the Razr 2020 is a striking phone, with a folding POLED screen in the middle. That screen is bolstered by a large amount of RAM and tons of internal storage.

The Phone

At the end of the day, the question of “is it worth it” really comes down to how the phone performs in day to day activity. Generally speaking, the consensus is that it’s a great little folding phone.

The slim profile and clamshell design allow it to stow easily in a pocket. The design is stylish and eye-catching, like most folding smartphones.

The quick view screen on the front of the phone allows you to peek at text messages and incoming calls. It works well as a way to glance at your phone without needing to open it all the way for more info.

This makes the phone great for productivity as well as stylish and sleek! In short, if you love the look of a folding phone and don’t mind spending top-dollar for a top-of-the-line phone, this one is right for you.
