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

Whether you remember the original Motorola Razr from the mid-2000s or not, the new Motorola Razr foldable smartphone has been the most coveted smartphone for years.
It fits into a 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 ̵
And this is a device you can actually pre-order soon on December 26th. And you'll find it on store shelves at Verizon stores and some Walmart locations in January 2020.
It's also more about appearance, not function and value, and there are certainly a good number of people who aren't have nothing against some of Razr's new flaws when it looks so good. With this in mind, there are four good reasons why a smartphone user who is interested in performance and functionality should not leak and order or purchase the new Motorola Razr, at least until these four things are addressed in future models.
