The phone part doesn't fold, the tablet does. It's extremely heavy and clunky. There is no real reason to compare them. The intended user is not at all the same.
Btw neither the outside screen (25:9) or the tablet screen (22.5:18, really? well 11.25:9 doesn't sound nice either) are suitable for video in either 16:9 or 21:9. They really just made some new aspect ratios that doesn't conform with anything. Both inside and out. Not good at all.
If you want to compare to a Samsung device then the Z Flip 5G is the one to compare with. You know, the refresh of Samsung's Razr (2019) clone.
Similar to the Fold2, it doesn't really have any trace of elegance. Pretty much a candybar phone that folds, sporting a screen aspect that really doesn't exist outside of that particular device - 24:9. Not even the same as the equally non-standard 25:9 on the Fold2.
Going beyond 21:9 (ultrawide) just because they needed to fit that separate modem and a slightly bigger battery to power this less efficient solution etc. It's a very poor design. Not to mention its second screen (1.1") on the outside is of no real use. So you always have to unfold to use it. Might as well get a better designed S20 Ultra at a lower price and with better camera setup as the Z Flip 5G can only be used as a candybar anyways. Making it quite pointless as a foldable.
The Z Flip has an old 12MP sensor with 1.4µm pixels, compared to the Moto that sports 1.6µm pixels when binned to 12MP, and a larger aperture as well and slightly wider focal range.
The Razr 5G is a true flip phone in it's design language. It is elegant and compact. It did not opt for any silly screen aspect ratio, but keeps a valid 21:9 (ultrawide) on it's main screen and the classic 4:3 on the outer screen which does serve plenty purpose.
Razr 5G is engineering and design brilliance.
Galaxy Z Flip 5G is embarrassing to look at. "Hey look, we a 24:9 candybar phone that folds for no good reason at all. But it folds, so heyyy!"
I actually want to try this phone since i barely take photos nor have much use for a huge display and actually like the design quite too much...but the pricing is just way off. This is a phone for people who are fed up by the usual phones, sporting 6 cams, a 7" screen, 6000mAh batteries for 1500$€ but then again - this is a 1500$€ phone! I understand the tech is expensive, yet if tech is expensive, create an expensive phone. No wonder people complain about being able to buy a fold 2 with triple cam, 4500mAh, 7,3" screen, 865+ for nearly the same price as a razr! Thats just insane and not understandable. Its not like samsung gets hardware for free. The razr is a perfect mid ranger at a premium price point...and will sadly end up unsold.

WinstonMoscow, 01 Sep 2020would buy for $50 just for the lolz .. not worth moreYeah. I think that will be when you make smartphones.

Probably, when Motorola wants to make a ugly/chunky phone like zflip, they will add more battery. If battery is what you need, you can very well buy Motorola g8 power, that comes at a lower cost
Marco M, 11 Sep 2020There is no better chipset available for this device. SD865 is a rubbish design in comparison.... moreTrue. They just want to hammer this device out of existence. Nitpicking and whining about processors and battery life. No one should see any difference between 765g and 865g even if they are playing games. Unless one wants to keep running antutu benchmark scores and compare the results, there shouldn't be any issues at all.
Melci Dezorientati, 18 Sep 20202800 mah in 2020 , Jesus Christ !!!Well. I don't think people would complain about the battery if it was an apple device. Buy it no matter how much it costs even if the battery is as low as 1900 mah. But when Motorola comes up with an innovative concept(which they have been doing for a long time now) just pick up the short comings and amplify it such that people won't buy it.

It's kinda hard to put a larger battery on a razr body unless you make it a bit thicker. Hope sony can still make an almost full screen phone with a body as big as the XZ1C
I prefer the Razr 2019. looks sleeker and textured back. What if moto position the main camera sensors and LED light at the top when folded and make a much larger screen in front. They can cram a dual cam at the top. Put a speaker grill at the bottom bezel. Also a Metal body like the old Razr2 v8.
Bruh, a 2800 mAh battery ain't worth buying however good the phone is unless you're a rich kid and don't use your phone as much a normal person daily.

Chef, 16 Sep 2020Don't buy this Rubbish.And reason for this? So far your comment is completely useless
Anonymous, 16 Sep 2020Not as slim as the original razr (2004)Don't buy this Rubbish.
hesham, 15 Sep 2020Motorola still very stupid to make such a modern phone with 2800mAh battery ...with this batte... moreso far the reviewers were able to get through the day. It's battery seems to be pretty solid.
If the price goes down to $999, then only majority of the people will start thinking of buying this one!
Motorola still very stupid to make such a modern phone with 2800mAh battery ...with this battery i will need to recharge the phone 3 times a day

I would rather get a burner flip phone instead. Showoff is iphone territory. A motorola is a motorola , aint nothing prestigious about it. It is like saying you are buying a kia or skoda to show off.
