- The new Motorola Razr is the most desirable smartphone I’ve seen in years, and yet it’s not a phone that people who care about functionality and value should buy.
- It has a high price tag, less-powerful specs, fewer features, and foldable-smartphone technology still has a long way to go before it’s as reliable as regular smartphones.

Whether you remember the original Motorola Razr from the mid 2000s or not, the new Motorola Razr foldable smartphone is the most desirable smartphone in years.
It taps into nostalgic design without appearing dated in any way. And the way it folds is the best we’ve seen in any foldable smartphone so far because it makes your phone smaller when you’re not using it — perfect for freeing up space in your pocket or bag.

It’s also more about looks rather than function and value, and there’s certainly a good number of people who won’t mind some of the new Razr’s shortcomings when it looks so good. With that in mind, there are four good reasons a smartphone user who cares about performance and functionality shouldn’t run out and pre-order or buy the new Motorola Razr, at least until these four things are addressed in future models.
