Excellent working phone with all bugs and flaws worked out in generation two. Totally recommended for anyone who wants a functional phone and the ability to turn heads when you have the retro mode on and the “Hello Moto” ring tone go off. Great but worth every penny!!

Nice phone, but useless factory warranty
Owned for 6 months when reviewed.
The phone itself had been performing well until just a few weeks ago when it stopped powering up. I sent it in for warranty but was told because the back case was cracked from a drop (not even screen damage), they would need to repair that first for $1000 before they would fix the power up issue under warranty. So I think the take-away is don't count on the warranty if you have any cracks or physical damage regardless if it's related to failure! Very disappointed and won't purchase again due to the support. Pic attached to show the cracked back that caused the rejection of warranty so you can gauge!

I in love with this phone.
Thougj, you cannot finf a case for the 2020 edition anywhere !!!
Love it it's quick, touch accuracy is unreal
Camera is great!
Cons: my GPS has been not been function since I purchase it wahhh
I've been pretty concerned about the quality of this device. I agree with the other reviewers, I probably wouldn't have bought it if it wasn't 400.00 off. I do like it though! It's so conveniently small that it can fit in my pockets. (Hard thing to do with women's jeans.) And the battery lasts me all day long. My previous phone was the S8, so this phone is at least 2x better in specs from what I've seen so far. It's definitely still an upgrade to me, but not flagship status. As far as the phone goes, it has that little creeky noise that people talk about. It's barely audible to me, so it doesn't bother me. I am seeing some issues with group text messages though, which is unusual. Sometimes they're not downloaded right away, so I have to click on them to download. When that happens, they're not in order so it's a little harder to understand the context of my messages sometimes. It’s also very hard to find a good case. I bought one from Amazon, and it pops off the phone while it’s in my pocket. My advice would be to spend a little bit more to get the protection that you need. There is also 2 bends on the screen which is a bit off putting. Sometimes if the screen is a little dirty, it’s more noticeable but you can’t tell at all if the screen isn’t off. All in all though, I like it and would buy it again! The convenience of having a smaller phone has been great. The front facing screen is lots of fun when taking selfies or controlling different apps. I just wish that we could have more than 6 app shortcuts. It’s pretty amazing to control my Google Home app without ever having to open the phone.
Nostalgia came true... It's so satisfying to use these type of the devices and remember when 10-15 years back you can finish your call by just closing your phone. And now Motorola delivers it to you - amazing quality, no reliability issues, super feelings and one of the best (and different) phones I ever used so far. Of course camera and battery life could be better, but you can't beat that style and nostalgia... And do not forget about Retro mode!

Very nice foldable phone, despite some issues.
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
I have been waiting for a modern folding smart phone for a very long time so as you can imagine I was very exited to see the recent new foldable offerings from both Samsung and Motorola. The last clamshell (flip) smart phone I had was a Motorola A1680 way back in 2012, and although I still love that phone to this day its lack of 4G, slow processor, and ancient version of Android make it completely useless for getting online in 2020. Anyway, although the new Samsung Z-Flip has better specs than the Motorola Razr in almost every area I ultimately chose the Motorola because of its much larger and more useful outer display and for its more interesting and stylish design.
Now that I have had the phone in my hands for about 48 hours however there are a few problem areas I have noticed.
First of all, after opening and closing the flip about 20 times with no issues it suddenly started making a very loud and very annoying creaking sound every time it was opened up. This was very disappointing considering the fact that I only bought the phone because I heard that they had solved the noisy hinge problem on this new version. In any case, fortunately I was able to quickly identify the source of the offending noise and fix the problem. The problem is that, although there is supposed to be a paper thin air gap between underside of the top of the front cover and the hinge, that gap reduces to zero towards the center and the resulting friction between the two materials when opening the flip can create this annoying sound. The solution was to simply moisten both sides of the corner of a small piece of paper with WD-40, insert it into the gap on the right or left and then slide it across to the other side, thus leaving a thin layer of lubricant between the touching areas in the center. And this seems to have done the trick because it hasn’t made even the slightest sound since doing this.
The second problem I noticed was that the phone got very hot during set up. You wouldn’t think that simply setting up the phone would use so much computing power that it would over tax the CPU like that. And if it gets that hot during set up what will happen should I play a very resource hungry game? I was ready to return the phone at this point, and I can certainly see how this might be a deal breaker for some people, but since I am not really a power user by any means I figure it should be okay. In fact, 95% of the time I am using my phone as an actual phone and, except when traveling, I rarely find the need to access anything online while away from home. Basically when I’m out and about I would rather engage in the world around me than to have my head buried in my phone.
Another thing I had a problem with was how the flip opens and closes. Normally with a flip phone the flip will want to spring open once it passes about 45 degrees and it will want to spring closed before it reaches this point. With the new Razr however you pretty much have to manipulate it all the way open and all the way closed. It is actually very easy to open it one handed but you have to kind of flick your wrist like with the communicators on the original Star Trek. But then when you go to close it you have to push it all the way closed, which can get very tiring for the fingers over time when doing this one handed. The thing is, if the flip doesn’t spring closed anyway then why not just go ahead and make it like the Z-Flip which can be held open at 90 degrees for taking photos or for video calls. I’m fine having it one way or the other but with this phone you get neither of these. I guess the Motorola engineers were worried that if the phone were allowed to snap shut it might potentially damage the phone.
In any case, it’s still great being able to once again end calls by closing a flip. I can’t count the number of times with conventional smart phones that I thought I had ended a call only to find out later that it didn’t take and that someone’s voice mail was recording everything I said. There is nothing like having a mechanical foolproof way of ending and answering calls. That being said however I definitely do not want the flip to shut off my music but unfortunately it does. If you are listening to music on YouTube with the phone open and then you close it it will not only pause the music but it will lock the phone as well. This means that to continue listening you have to hit the fingerprint scanner to unlock the phone and then you have to find the YouTube app on the outer screen and open it. Then you can hit play again on the song you were listening to. This is really a major pain and if there is a way to change this feature I have not yet found it.
My final complaint is with the tactile buttons, particularly the volume button. Its way to thin and short and it is very poorly placed for one-handed use, both with the flip closed or open. Oh, and I’m not a big fan of the polished mirror finish either. Not only is it very slippery and easy to drop but because it’s a fingerprint magnet I find myself compulsively wiping the phone down 50 times a day.
Even with all these problems though I actually really like the phone and I think I am going to keep it.
Phone is reliable, the outside screen is well utilized for peeking messages, camera preview, and supports 3rd party apps so I can open MFA codes, or stream videos in a less battery intensive way.
The phones small profile makes it super nice to carry.
The inside screen does not feel cheap. If you're in direct sunlight you can see the crease. If you swipe your finger over it you can feel it, but most of the time I never noticed. Most people who ask to play with the phone are amazed how subtle the crease is.
Battery life is OK, not great, but rapid charging more than makes up for the battery fault on long days. It's also not great at intense games. Anything much more intense than Among Us heats the phone up.
As unbelievably sturdy as the interior screen is, the back is glass and broke when I dropped it off the couch on a tile floor.
Also this is not a beach-friendly phone. I got a grain of sand behind the interior screen. It eventually worked it's way out and everything is fine. It was just annoying to feel that bump for a week.
Just wanted to say a quick thank you for being our valued customer and we know how disappointing it is to crack the screen. While we do not cover physical damage, you may consider getting it repaired for a fee.

Motorola Razr (2020) review: Flip out over the 5G follow-upThe second-gen Razr comes with more battery, more brains, more connectivity. It's expensive, though, so is it worth flipping out over this clamshell?
