Are you excited about the potential (eventual) US release of the long overdue third edition of Motorola's reimagined Razr but fear the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 powerhouse might not suit your budget? Maybe you should still consider the (late) 2020-released Razr 5G mid-ranger.
That Snapdragon 765 processor has obviously not gotten any better with time, and the same goes for the... imperfect hinge and divisive overall design including a large notch and distinctive chin, but the key original deal-breaking detail is arguably "fixed" now.
Motorola Razr 2 smartphone dropped from its obscene initial list price of $1,399.99 to $999.99 almost instantly a couple of years back, Amazon's hot new Black Friday 2022 discount is easily the highest to ever be offered by such a major US retailer with no strings attached.While the folding

If you've been meaning to try out a foldable smartphone and either can't afford or don't like how the Galaxy Z Flip family looks, now's definitely the time to take a leap of faith without breaking the bank.
