The  Motorola Razr Plus 2023  boasts several notable improvements, starting with its larger 3.6-inch external display, featuring a 144Hz OLED screen. This display serves as a quick access portal to notifications, alarms, and text messages, providing a second life to the phone when folded.

 It functions like a secondary, smaller phone rather than a smartwatch, making it convenient for tasks like controlling music, checking notifications, and making calls when mounted in the car. Though not without some imperfections, the external display enhances the phone's appeal and justifies its value.

Motorola's custom skin over Android, known as My UX, has been thoughtfully designed for the flip phone format. The shift in form factor doesn't significantly impact the user interface, allowing for a smooth experience when tapping, scrolling, and swiping through apps. The software is optimised for flip phones, making it user-friendly and easy to master.

One of the most significant improvements is the phone's dust resistance, with an IP52 rating. While not as water-resistant as some of Samsung's foldable, the Motorola Razr Plus excels in protecting against dust and particles.

Overall, the Motorola Razr Plus 2023 impresses with its innovative features, user-friendly software, and enhanced durability, positioning itself in a competitive race against Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip model.
