Motorola RAZR (1st Gen) Deal
If ever there was a time to get into the foldable smartphone market, it’s now. While stock lasts, Motorola has slashed $1,000 off its 1st generation RAZR.
This deal smashes last year’s BOGOF deal which, at the time, coincided with Mother’s Day in the US, as does so with this latest deal!
Usually, I’d try to avoid older-gen tech favouring newer models. Still, as the technology is so new in foldable devices, the only big omission from the gen one handset is 5G.
Are Foldable Smartphones any Good?
Yes. And, they are getting better.
Is foldable the future of handsets, though? I’m not so sure.
Personally, I feel that the Motorola RAZR is the best on the market. Most of the competition are phones that fold out into tablets, whereas the RAZR and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip are average-sized display handsets that fold smaller.
The reason RAZR eclipses the Samsung offering for me comes down to nostalgia. I owned the original and was at CES 6 weeks after Gen 1 was launched to try it out for myself, and I was blown away by how smooth the hinge mechanism is, with little to no visible crease in the display.
The 1st gen model runs on Android 10 and has 128GB of storage, a very respectable 6.2″pOLED foldable display with a smaller gOLED 2.7″ display on the outside.
It comes in a choice of Blush Gold or Noir Black colourways and is suitable for a day of power thanks to the internal 2,510mAh battery.
Where & When
This amazing deal is on now for the US only at motorola.com, where for a limited period, the Motorola RAZR has $1,000 off and is priced at just $499.
If the $1,000 wasn’t enough to sweeten the deal, the RAZR during this deal period also comes with a free $99 case to protect it on your travels.
Remember, this deal is only while stock lasts, and I expect it’s more of a Mother’s Day promotion in disguise and could end shortly after this coming weekend.
So act fast!
