True Technology and Innovation, published by Motorola's Chicago Laboratories. The engineers who worked on it talked to them at the London launch event, they can not hide their smile and satisfaction from being out of a 4-year tunnel. As it takes nearly 50 months to develop this product, there is a long and continuous exchange between designers, engineers and the marketing department, each with their needs and needs. Had they heard marketing, the smartphone that many fans had dreamed of would have come out with so many cameras, a huge battery, and a powerful processor, but it would have been twice as big, heavy, and expensive.
Fortunately, the designers have won, and the product we opened and closed in London has been opened a hundred times, and that has really made us rediscover the pleasure of having something truly new in our hands never been born Would not you have insisted? The engineers did the rest and packed a seemingly "back to the future" version of the product that many of us had in our pockets 1
The first truly foldable smartphone, why It's a smartphone that's going to get smaller, and not a tablet that can become a smartphone like the Mate X or the Galaxy Fold.
A product that's really taken care of in every way, especially with respect to the sensitive screen we know and appreciate Samsung knows well they could break very easily. Motorola has developed its Razr based on a flexible 6.2-inch POLED screen, but only the middle part is flexible: the rest is anchored to a steel beam which is fixed in the upper part and in the lower part on a sled is mounted . The following GIF shows the system: When you fold the smartphone, the display falls a few millimeters into the lower area. The movement is assisted by a series of springs that pull it down.
The same feathers that keep it taut even when the smartphone is open: The wrinkle that is clearly visible on a Galaxy Fold can not be seen here at all, it can only be heard with the fingertips .
For someone Maybe he does not like certain choices.
A technology enthusiast needs to close more than one eye for certain Motorola solutions: the battery has been split into two parts and is small, very small, the processor is just a Snapdragon 710 and the screen is molded over everything is not at all . Both at the top where the notch is located and at the bottom where there is a curve, the user sees a barrel shape when watching a YouTube video. Not the perfect way to enjoy a movie, but anyway, despite the sculpted screen the Razr remains beautiful when used in the context of an innovative product that needs to break some patterns including screen size.
The Razr is thin and well-balanced and can be opened and closed without the slightest effort: it seems so sturdy that we mistreated it during the presentation as if it were a war veteran made with a deliberately made hinge was not to break. The sense of solidity the Razr gave us did not give us any other leaflets we tried, and one of the people who worked on the screen's durability tests assured us that even if a speck of dust occurred, the  or screen should not be broken.
It should not be a problem: The mounted on the slide OLED screen is hooked only in the upper part and the exchange is very simple, which is why Motorola calculates only 299 euros in case of failure of the screen from warranty. Inside is a Snapdragon 710, not the fastest in the range, but the one with the best ratio of speed to fuel, and it actually seemed like a quick and fluid product. The Razr is not a performance smartphone, is a smartphone for a user who arrives by phone in the evenings, has a second phone to work with and wants to be the first product to have a fun product. And opening up the fronts of the Razr for friends and for those who have never seen a screen that unfolds in itself is still a real pleasure.
Motorola has not paid attention to saving: The largest battery was not there, a more powerful processor was too hot, he offered the best in every area, what he could. The 16 megapixel camera, 1: 1.7 is also the widest that could be used, taking into account the reduced thickness . It also includes a blur effect ToF sensor that helps the Snapdragon processor calculate a defocusing effect that is not easy for a processor in this area.
Just a few doubts: It fills with incredible ease with fingerprints. We had to clean it at least 10 times while taking pictures and videos. We believe that it is the smartphone that attracts the most fingerprints picked up last year. And then there's the small and very useful front-end display, which requires developer support to make the most of it: Motorola has implemented emails, notifications, control center, music widget and other little gems But we need a good job from Google to help you seamlessly use the two screens and easily switch from internal to external. Nevertheless, it seems to be alright in any case.
Razr will cost 1599 euros and will be a product for the few. Obviously. But it's a beautiful product that will have an even more special taste for those who used a Razr at the time. The first launch of a foldable smartphone
