Motorola Razr hands on: The revived RAZR is a fashion-forward foldable

Motorola has resurrected its beloved Razr phone, a staple of mid-2000s cool, as a foldable device. The new Razr distinguishes itself from the Galaxy fold and Huawei's Mate X by folding vertically instead of horizontally. Unfolded, it looks like a regular smartphone, albeit one with a chunky "chin", but folded in half it's practically pint-sized, with a small front display to see your notifications, control media, or take a selfie. There's still a lot of questions when it comes to durability and foldables, but the new Razr feels extremely well constructed, and folds in half with no visible gap. It does have a few downsides, including a mid-range processor, single camera, and questionable battery capacity, but this is the first foldable we could see ourselves using as a daily device.
