Dimensions when opened
Razr 5G: 169.2 x 72.6 x 7.9mm (200g)
Razr 2022: 167 x *79.8* x 7.6mm (192g)
This suction cup is wiiiiide. Wider than an iPhone 13 Pro Max. I don’t buy this. Sorry. The largest phone I ever owned was the LG V20 (159.7 x 78.1 x 7.6mm, 174g) and it was no picnic to use. I finally sold it. This 2022 Razr is taller, wider and heavier than this V20.
I’ll spend $900 on my Flip 3 and $500 on my Razr 5G. I’m fine with what I already have. Spending $1400 is not something I expect to get only 2-3 years of use out of it. I want 10 years. It is also possible nowadays. So many stories of people using an iPhone 4 or 4S for a decade.
I also have other phones like my Pixel 3, Essential PH-1, and iPhone SE (2016) that can take the wear and tear off my flip phones. They still work great for their age, even with outdated software. I have about ten years of smartphones that I can use until 2031 or whenever they stop 4G.
The idea of always updating your phone every year or two is not a good idea. It’s an expensive hobby. You don’t have to listen to YouTubers buying phones you don’t really need. You can use phones from 2016 for much, much longer now.

Oldie is always a goodie. Sometimes newer isn’t always better.
My favorite example is my PS1 on PS2. Now I love the PS2. It’s practically a PS1, PS2 and DVD player. But for some reason, I liked owning my PS1 more. Maybe because I got my PS1 in 1996 and didn’t get a PS2 until 2003. That’s 1 year vs 3. Even with all the ugly pixel graphics that have aged less well than 2D graphics of the Super NES, the PS1 remains my favorite console. have ever owned.
Maybe owning the Dreamcast in 2001 for $50 made me give up the $300 PS2. But in 2005, with games like Tekken 5, Gran Turismo 4 and God of War, I came to love my PS2 as much as my Dreamcast. But it still never quite reached PS1 level and only played for 6 years (1996-2002). I had to replace my PS1 model 1001 with the dreaded lens problem of having to flip it over to work.
That’s probably how I feel about Flip 3 compared to Flip 4. I think Flip 4 is a bit more like HTC One M8. It’s an improvement but it doesn’t seem revolutionary. It doesn’t feel as fresh to me. I like the sequels too. As I prefer Vita more than PSP and I love my PSP. But Vita can browse much faster and can read PS2 ports. I prefer PS4 to PS3. I prefer Dreamcast to Genesis and Saturn. I prefer the iPhone 4S to the 4 and the 5S to the 5. I had lots of fond memories of my iPhone 4 but would prefer to go back to a 4S if I had the choice.
It all depends on your experiences with them. It’s never really about specs. Sometimes it’s just your own personal memories attached to it.
Wait a second, this thing is LARGER than Rog 6 or iPhone 13 Pro Max…
What is the real.

So they are finally making it a flagship after it was overpriced below the supported mid-range low end….but ditch the iconic look which is the main selling point of the device….
At least they finally set a more reasonable price.

Anonymous, 15 hours agoThe only advantage of Flip 4 over this is stronger glass and IP rating. – Razr looks like pho… moreWell, a lot of talk and what’s the result?
– it depends on your taste, I don’t think Razr 2022 looks any different, same makeup bag.
– do not think, both can do the same thing.
– Samsung’s OneUI is by far the best Android UI these days.
– maybe yes.
And I’d add zero support for Razr, worse battery life (Lenovo can’t do the optimization right), worse camera (another thing they’re really bad at)…
Samsung always wins by a light year.
I always buy Motorola
since a bad experience with another brand
motorola available first in China, the world has gone wrong
Another foldable phone with an ugly crease in the middle! Next!
stupid hole, i really hope that Xperia 5 IV will have QI charging
Even Z Flip3 from 2021 has longer software support than that.
Gone signature design, disappointing battery, useless flagship chipset that will burn the whole phone. I don’t see how this will compete with the same offering from Samsung. I really want the foldable clamshell to be the standard, and I like the RAZR’s unique chin. Now it’s just “another” foldable.
It’s DOA. Motorola will give you a major update and then forget about this device. It doesn’t matter how good a phone is. Poor software support should not be accepted by consumers. I really wish Motorola Mobility was still owned by Google.
I don’t think Samsung or Motorola really nailed their foldable flips this year. The Flip 4 is more or less the same. He didn’t fix his little cover screen. While Motorola has changed it and improved the internals, but the design is actually worse. It’s a copy of the Flip 3 & 4 when opened. Same perforation. Same fingerprint reader on the right side. But when closed, it doesn’t look symmetrical with the cameras on the bottom right and in a horizontal position instead of vertical on the Z Flips.
If I was a typical consumer who wanted to save some money, I would suggest getting the Flip 3. Maybe get it for $500 or less. Even FREE if taken back. If you don’t like the cover display, find a Razr 5G. I have both and have been using both together for almost a year. I don’t feel any desire to update them. The Razr 5G costs $800, but you can find lightly used ones for $400 or less on OfferUp or eBay. Don’t expect the smoothest performance with a Snap765G from a 2020 phone. Battery life on Razr 5G and Flip 3 is about the same. Not great but not terrible if the Flip 3 is 4G and 60hz.
Wait at least 3 months.
I hope for a European release very soon.
blue, 15 hours agoIn what exactly?The only advantage of Flip 4 over this is stronger glass and IP rating.
– Razr looks like a phone, not a makeup bag.
– The second screen is much more useful
– no Samsung UI (obviously stock Android is bad too), no all that third party bloatware
– better hinge
– no performance loss after 6 months like all galaxies
Anonymous, 17 hours agoNow it’s finally a good phone that they decide to sell only in China…..Lol no. Wait for the global launch and thank Lenovo for launching the first in China
