Motorola Razr vs Samsung Galaxy Z Flip


The Moto Razr and the Galaxy Z Flip both hinge around the same design with a horizontal folding display.

Both phones have articulated hinges, the big difference being that the Moto Razr carries some retro design elements from the 2004 Razr it apes.

That includes the classic Razr chin, which gives some form to the phone, while Samsung is a lot more symmetrical, with the two sections effectively the same size.


The Razr’s Flex View display goes up against Samsung’s Infinity Flex. While Motorola has used a plastic surface.  Samsung is going to be using ultra-thin glass as a coating for protection. That might mean that the Z Flip is a little better protected.

Samsung is also pushing a greater resolution, having ensured that its display is full HD+. From the pixel densities, Motorola is at 373ppi, while Samsung is at 425ppi. Basically, Samsung’s display is going to be technically better.

When it comes to the second display, the Razr is a much more usable size. Samsung’s external display is more like a notification window. That means the Razr is likely to offer the better closed-phone experience.

Hardware specifications

 The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is said to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 with 8GB of RAM. Besides, it is paired with 256GB of storage, 3300mAh battery.

The Razr, on the other hand, comes with its 2150mAh battery which gives the Samsung more advantage. However, some sources reveal they both support 15W fast charging.

The Razr comes with mid-range specs. The Snapdragon 710 with 6GB RAM which is at a disadvantage compared to the more powerful Samsung.

The cameras

The Razr has a 16-megapixel main camera and it’s just a single unit, mounted on the lid of the phone.

The internal camera on the Razr is 5-megapixels, sitting in that notch at the top of the display.

Samsung is packing in a few more cameras on the Z Flip. The first is a pair of 12-megapixel cameras on the rear of the phone, the second offering a wide-angle.

It is certain Samsung is offering more options with its camera.  The Razr will hook fo few customers who prefer a simpler approach that comes from the single rear camera.


In terms of prizes, the Motorola Razr is a bit pricey from the currently available preorders on EE.

From the notable leaks, the Galaxy Z Flip will retail at $1,400 while Verizon has the Moto Razr on pre-order for $1499.99

However, the prices for the Z Flip are based on the leaks and might change to a higher price rating.

But because of the brand stability in most countries, if Samsung takes the cheaper option then it will end up making the most sales regardless of the functionality of the two devices.

In some markets, the Moto Razr has won a lot of fans due to its appearance.
