With the new Motorola Razr Plus, the company aims to establish itself as the premier foldable phone maker in the US, making a strong comeback after its previous attempts fell short. The Razr Plus modernises the classic flip phone into one of the best foldable phones available today. 

It boasts a larger 3.6-inch external display, trendy colour options, and a design that rivals Samsung's foldable progress. Let's explore what Moto got right and where it missed the mark. 

Motorola Razr Plus specs

The key specifications include a 6.9-inch POLED display with 165Hz refresh rate, a weight of 184.5g, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, 8GB RAM with 256GB storage. It has a 3,800mAh battery with 30W charging and 5W wireless, a 12MP wide, 13MP ultra-wide, and 32MP front camera. 

Motorola Razr Plus pros

  • Razr Plus features a 3.6-inch OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, offering quick access to notifications and a unique secondary phone-like experience. 
  •  Motorola's custom skin, My UX, provides a smooth user interface for the Razr Plus. 
  • The Razr Plus is rated IP52, offering protection against dust and particles. 

Motorola Razr Plus cons

While the Razr Plus excels in many areas, there are still some aspects that could be improved:

  • Due to the dual displays and older processor, the Razr Plus may struggle to provide a full day's worth of battery life. Charging speed is also relatively slow at 30W.
  • The Razr Plus features a 12MP wide and 13MP ultra-wide camera setup. While it performs well in terms of dynamic range and sharpness, the absence of a telephoto lens limits its ability to capture distant subjects with detail.
