Best Time to Purchase Motorola Razr

Some retailers sell this foldable phone for $1,500. As mentioned earlier, Razr will exclusively hit Verizon. Razr is said to go on sale on Feb. 6. 

Flip phones are coming back in style, and now is a hot trend among big companies, and now Motorola joins the bandwagon. Introducing the Motorola Razr, their first innovation in regards to smart flip phones. 

Now available for pre-order, Motorola has released several videos to explain how to take care of the device; it's clear that if you are attentive enough that it also has problems with other foldable phones out there right now in the market. No cases, keep it dry, no screen protectors, close the phone before placing it in your bag or pocket, sharp objects close to is a no-no, lastly, "bumps and lumps are normal" in the plastic screen as what Motorola has mentioned.


With all that has been said, it is not entirely shocking because, as for now, foldable phones are still in their first term. It is a reminder, though, to take care of your investment because this sets you back around $1,500 if you buy the phone without a plan. With a plan, it may set you back around $62 per month for two long years. If you have the bank for it as well as you want to jump into the craze, by all means, go for it.

Motorola has been keen on following the same look and feel of their previous phones like the 2004 Razr V3 but coming with a more modern twist. This must be a rebranding of that phone with a 2020 look.
