The Razr smartphone also termed as a throwback to the future has as well embraced the world of foldable.

The phone on flipping, it reveals an elongated touchscreen that is even longer than the iPhone 11 display and when closed, it gives a display for checking texts, calls, music tabs, emails more like that of a smartwatch.
Besides these features, the Huawei Mate X as revealed by Forbes, it has a clever reverse fold design that is even better than that of a Samsung’s book-shaped Galaxy Fold.
The phone doesn’t need a third screen as it folds flat making it easier to transform to a tablet and back. Another thing is its camera technology used that beats both the Samsung fold and the Motorolla Razr.
Another advantage of the Razr over the Mate X is its ability to fold into almost half its extended size that is half the size of a normal smartphone which makes it compact and pocketable very portable.
Apart from the two notable features and the price differences that make the Motorola Razr advantageous over Huawei’s Mate X, another aspect on the maintenance costs that most buyers neglect or don’t consider at all.
