Today is a big day for fans of the next-generation Razr. Motorola has just opened up pre-orders for the folding Android smartphone, which has a starting price of $1,499. The device will officially start shipping on February 6th. In the meantime, Motorola has posted a new video on its YouTube channel entitled "Caring for Razr" in which the company talks about how to... well... care for your Razr. In the video that runs for less than a minute, Motorola explains that the Razer is water repellant and can be wiped dry with a cloth. But then, the company goes on to state that the "screen is made to bend; bumps and lumps are normal." The Motorola Razr uses a complex hinge mechanism to... Read more...
Everything old is new again, even in the ever-evolving tech world. Motorola has resurrected its popular Razr phone to take on the foldable device market. The Motorola Razr will be available for pre-order in the United States on January 26th. The Motorola Razr was originally supposed to be available for pre-order on December 26th and ship in January. Unfortunately, Motorola had to push back the release date due to “unparalleled excitement and interest from consumers.” The company noted that demand was higher than it had originally anticipated and that it needed to adjust the availability timeline. American consumers will be able to pre-order the Razr on January 26th through through... Read more...
It appears that Motorola may have a potential hit on its hands with the upcoming Razr smartphone. The new Razr represents a new take on the nascent folding smartphone market with a portrait-style display and a horizontal hinge. Motorola has now announced that it has to delay both the start of pre-orders and when the device will actually launch. The company had previously stated that pre-orders would commence on the day after Christmas (December 26th), with an official launch to occur in January. The company issued the following statement about the status of the smartphone's arrival: Since its announcement in November, the new Motorola razr has received unparalleled excitement and interest...

After months of countless leaks, Motorola’s modern take on the Razr V3 is finally official, and it’s simply called the Razr. Like the Samsung Galaxy Fold that came before it, the Razr is foldable smartphone with an intricate hinge system – but that’s where the similarities end. While the Galaxy Fold is in essence a tablet that can be folded down to the size of a phone, the Razr has the form-factor of a slightly taller than average smartphone that folds down into compact and incredibly pocketable “puck” that fits into your hand. And unlike the Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, the Razr is able to accomplish its folding trick without leaving an unsightly crease... Read more...
Motorola's Moto Razr is almost here folks; and that point is even more evident by the smartphone's appearance at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). As is often the case with unreleased smartphones, these FCC "leaks" often give us a great look at what we can expect when the product begins shipping. The FCC images confirm all of the previously leaked renders that we've seen concerning the Moto Razr, including its clamshell design that harks back to the original Moto Razr flip-phone family. We can also see an elongated, unbroken portrait-style display that folds when not in use. Additional images from the FCC show the smartphone with its display unfolded from the right and left sides,... Read more...
When it comes to folding smartphones, there are two entries that have been brought to the tablet by mainstream OEMs: the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X. The devices pack large folding s and are powered by burly octa-core processors; the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 on the former, and the Kirin 980 on the latter. However, each of those smartphones is priced through the stratosphere. The Galaxy Fold carries a price tag of $1,980, while the Mate X will set you back a whopping $2,600. Motorola may be going for the more practical approach with its upcoming RAZR remake, as witnessed by the specs that the folks over at XDA-Developers were able to dig up on the folding... Read more...
Earlier this month, Motorola confirmed that it is indeed working on a folding smartphone (likely dubbed Moto RAZR); one that will inevitably be compared to the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the crowd favorite Huawei Mate X. Previously, a potential design for the smartphone was revealed by the World Intellectual Property Organisation, which showed off a folding primary display (portrait orientation) and a smaller secondary display on the exterior (which can be used when the primary display is closed). Now, the folks over at XDA-Developers claim to have received some insider information on how the secondary display will function. For starters, unlike the Galaxy... Read more...
Over the past several months, Motorola has dropped hints that it would like to release a folding smartphone as the spiritual successor to its famed Moto RAZR family. Those intentions came more into focus when a patent filing revealed drawings of the device in question. Now, a new report from Engadget all but confirms the company’s intentions to re-enter the fray to tackle devices like the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X. "We started to work on foldables a long time ago," said Motorola VP of Global Product Dan Dery. "And we have been doing a lot of iteration." According to Dery, Motorola doesn’t want to be last major player on the market... Read more...
Late last week we received word that Motorola was working on a successor to its widely popular original RAZR flip phone. However, rather than being a "dumb phone", this would be modern design with all the "luxury" trappings of the Android operating system. Today, we're getting a closer look at what Motorola is potentially cooking up thanks to drawings that were found in a December patent filing with the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO). There is nothing by way of logos or any information regarding the specs of the device, but we can clearly see the overall design language of the phone, which most definitely pays homage to the original. The device takes on the traditional... Read more...
Before the rise of smartphone and especially the iPhone, the Motorola RAZR was THE smartphone that everyone wanted to have. It was stylish, it was thin (for its time) and it was an all-around good smartphone. The RAZR name has long since faded into obscurity, but a new report this morning indicates that Motorola could be bringing it back with a new smartphone. According to the report from the Wall Street Journal, Lenovo wants Motorola to deliver a folding smartphone to counter incoming entries from the likes of Samsung, Huawei, and LG. Motorola's standing in the smartphone world has eroded quite a bit over the years, and its sales don't come anywhere close to matching the like... Read more...
Take a look at a smartphone from a few years ago compared to something available today and you'll find a number of major differences. Screens, processors, operating systems and more are advancing at a breakneck speed. However, battery tech has been stuck moving at a relatively glacial pace, as evidenced by even some of the highest spec'ced smartphones of today struggling to make it through a full day of use. This is where Motorola stepped in with the original RAZR MAXX by infusing the DROID RAZR with a large battery to keep even the heaviest of power users satisfied. Fast forward to today and you'll see they're at it again with the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD... Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD Review... Read more...

Motorola Mobility, now a division of Google, has been on a tear as of late, releasing potent new Android superphones to the market, in competition with the iPhone 5, Samsung's Galaxy SIII and many others.  Not long ago we gave you a look at the recently released RAZR M, the 4-inch little brother to the hot, new device that just showed up here in our lab the other day.  Considered the middle sibling of Motorola's latest RAZR Trio, the RAZR HD has the same basic platform configuration and identical display as the highest-end RAZR MAXX HD, though the MAXX has a larger 3300mAh (2530mAh for the RAZR HD) battery and 32GB of internal storage versus the RAZR HD's 16GB of on-board storage (12GB...
