Price is just TOO much.

It is also pretty darn huge and thick compared to previous flip phones.

I hade an OG razr

1500 is cheap considering samsungs fold is 2k. I wonder how many people will go for this. I think its a nice compromise for size.


Edit: Just read the specs, they should have at least gotten an Snapdragon 855 in the thing for that price. I still see the appeal though. I am afraid Moto have waited too long to bring this out cause a whole generation of kids have no clue what the OG Razr is. This wont sell that many.

I think this is a really cool phone, but man the price is bonkers and a 2510mAh battery...

It's actually almost the same dimensions as the Moto Razer V3 according to ArsTechnica (https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2019...splay-crease/). Just doesn't have the same tapers etc.

Ya, given that small battery is is best they did not put in a 855 CPU. Have to consider the battery life at that point as well as performance. The 710 is a good compromise on a phone with this ones goal.

https://news.yahoo.com/2019-11-13-mo...view-2019.html

I like the Engadget write up as well. Still not for me, I like my 400 dollar Razor2 gaming phone.

Always, but usually bought on 2yr contracts to draw out the cost. Few people buy them outright, which is it's own problem for pricing.

Not sure how many countries do this today, but in the US people can lease phones like they do cars so they don't have to pay the full amount.

Yeah the price is kinda ridiculous but I get it considering the folding screen. Much better design having the screen curve instead of fold as it does on the Samsung variant. I think we'll see that in future designs to correct that crease issue.
