What you need to know
- Motorola RAZR is set to go on sale in India on May 3 — three days after the lockdown is scheduled to end.
- The phone costs a staggering ₹124,999 ($1,635) in the country, $200 more than Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip.
- Poor camera and issues with hardware make the RAZR a non-starter in the country.
Motorola India has now provided a statement saying the RAZR is now scheduled to go on sale in the country from May 6.
While the RAZR generated a lot of interest before its launch, the final product was far from ideal. The camera was laughably bad for a $300 device, let alone one that costs five times as much. Then there's the issue with the build quality, with the foldable screen unlikely to stand the test of time.
Then there's how much it costs in India. With a retail price of ₹124,999 ($1,635), the Motorola RAZR costs ₹15,000 ($200) more than Samsung's foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip. If you are in the market for a new foldable, do yourself a favor and get the Galaxy Z Flip.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
Featuring a clamshell form factor with a secondary display on the outer shell, the Galaxy Z Flip is the most refined foldable phone we've seen yet. The hinge is more durable this time around, and the design combined with the hardware makes it the foldable to get right now.
