The poor/angry mob way:
You are better off with a Pixel 3a, OnePlus, Moto Z4 or Xiaomi or whatever that has better specs for a quarter of this price.
And the rational way:
This hinge and this type of flexible display is new technology. They've spent 4 years developing it, they've tried 21 different prototypes. Who's paying for this technology? Who's paying these engineers? Others just put a motherboard and a screen in a case and it's ready. The gen 1 is always way harder to create. Look at Apple with their first iPhone, they charged an arm and a leg back then because it was new technology. Motorola are also using the highest quality materials available so that it doesn't have the fate of the Galaxy Fold.
If they'd fit a bigger battery the phone would have been thicker and wouldn't remind you of the original, probably not comfortable in the hand and in the pocket either. If they'd put a more powerful processor the battery would've gone flat in 3 hours.
This is what people have been asking for for years, a lightweight phone with a big screen that can go smaller to fit properly in your pocket. It solves the problems of the above mentioned phones.
Pixel 3a has a tiny screen + text, 3a XL is way too big. OnePlus 7T is big, bulky and way too heavy, Moto Z4 is pretty big too. Last phone that is actually super comfortable to hold and put in a pocket was the Moto Z2 Force.
So you're again paying for all this engineering that everyone will start to copy and follow in the next few years and months. That's pretty good too because the price of the foldable screens will drop and we'll see cheaper RAZR versions with better specs or even flagship specs.
So people, STOP complaining about the price, if you don't like it or can't afford it, don't buy it.
No thats bad idea& disign was good but battery backup not good enough and motorolla may work on it due to only 2510 mah battery and come on and why you guys are make you own dump fellow.
Dimensions are too clunky, making it awkward to use in both it's folded and unfolded configurations. At least the Galaxy Fold fulfills two purposes: ease of use one-handed when folded and offers a large screen for media consumption when unfolded. The new RAZR solves none of the inherent problems plaguing big phones nowadays and brings nothing to the table that can really wow the user.
Cell phone size paradox - Sorted
Low specs + Battery capacity - You should try it first (for sure the optimization is top)
Only US, not global - Which lab rats would be better off trying this concept more than the nostalgic and can-afford ones?
WELL DONE MOTO! You nailed it!!!

its new tach so the price is justified
Alex, 15 Nov 2019Completely agree. Samsung's next foldable, that is in this same style, will blow this out of t... moreYou mean foldable tablet? Get over it, it is not a phone it is a freaking tablet.
