Motorola’s foldable rebirth of the Razr brand had everything going for it – the brand cachet, the nostalgia play, the sexiness of foldables… until, that is, Samsung announced the Galaxy Z Flip, which has the same form factor but is a much better device in everything but its smaller outside display.
Oh, and did you know the Z Flip is also slightly cheaper? Well, it used to be. Right now, Motorola is running an intriguing promo in the US. You can just straight-up buy a Razr from its website for $999. That’s $500 off the usual selling price, and basically one third off.
As far as deals go, this one’s insane. The only caveat is that you have to purchase the phone before June 21 at 11:59 PM CDT, or “while supplies last”. So definitely don’t put this off if you’re interested.
Then again, at $999 there are plenty of devices out there on offer that are undoubtedly better smartphones than the Razr. So if you’re buying this, let’s face it – you’re buying it for the nostalgia, or the cool factor of the folding screen, or both. Just not for specs or performance per dollar, as it were.
