Motorola Razr 40: The art of compromises

It may seem unbelievable to many of you, but foldable smartphones have been with us for over four years (since the premiere of the first Samsung Galaxy Fold ). Seriously, I don’t know when it flew by! However, it must be openly admitted that despite the passage of time, they are still not very popular and it is difficult to meet more than one person in one place with a folder in their hand. Of course, the main reason for this is the high prices of these devices.

Motorola, thanks to the Razr 40 model , wants to bring the foldables to a more acceptable price level for normal customers. Of course, as a result, the company had to make some compromises and cost cuts to offer a more attractive valuation. But was it really done in the right way and in the right places? I have some doubts about it, and why – you will find out by reading this review.
