Would you buy the new Motorola RAZR?

Motorola just announced the resurrection of a true mobile phone classic—the RAZR. Introduced by the company in 2004, this smart version of the original flip phone will feature a foldable OLED screen and other upgrades. Fans of the first RAZR will appreciate this seamless design that allows the device to unfold into a nearly 7-inch touchscreen without any creases. While the phone is said to go on sale next month, skeptics are already questioning the phone's durability, battery life, and above all, the steep price tag. Are you ready to shell out for the new RAZR?

Many of us still think upon those flip-phone days of yesteryear fondly, and with recent smart phones more resembling tablets than portable mobile devices, Motorola's new iteration of the classic RAZR is the kind of shake-up the iPhone and Android-dominated marketplace needs. This RAZR will feature a full OLED touchscreen when flipped open, as well as a small touchscreen on the front of the device when it's closed. Good luck with your giant iPhones and Galaxies and Pixels—I've got Hello Moto right here in my breast pocket, thanks.

Did you just say $1500 for a phone that will maybe last two years? We've all survived for 15 years without a foldable smart phone, and now we know why. Motorola can sell the nostalgia all it wants, but when it comes to what really matters on modern-day cell phones—durability, battery life, portrait mode for heaven's sake!—the new RAZR surely folds, er, falls, short. Half the size isn't worth double the price.
