Can you really use this for two years?

The decision to buy the Razr really comes down to how much you want the form factor.
As stated, it is no flagship device. The price is all due to the technology and form factor required to make this work. The original "new" razr had an issue with the folding mechanism that made it super easy to break. That is no longer the case, so you can own and use this device without it breaking in the first three months. The question then becomes, do you want to? If you are spending far too much time on your phone, this phone makes way more sense than a Palm phone (which they are still advertising for some reason) or another mobile detox device. You will only want to use it in portrait, so many of those landscape time killers become a thing of the past. In portrait mode, especially in bed, it will become a chore to use, making you want to put it down as well. If you are the type of person who loves using your cell phone and doesn't want it to change, this is a mere novelty. I found that the novelty wears off after 17 days, about two days too long to return the device. I do like talking on the phone, which is what I use my phone for the most. Text entry with the stock keyboard is a chore, and switching to swiftkey will disable your ability to type with the screen closed. Even with swiftkey screen accuracy and touch response is a reoccurring and annoying issue to live with. You will likely respond less to messages and be less engaged via text than with an iPhone or something with accurate...

Leverage small screen for maximum usability

My use case might be different than most, but thanks to that I am having an incredible time with this phone.
- Trying to lessen my screen time with phones.
- Use Razr 5G for daily driver and old phone (Galaxy S10) for media consumption.
The main selling point for the phone is to quickly and efficiently manage: viewing and replying to notifications, music/Audible controls, and swapping connected devices (earbuds/headphones).The small external screen handles all of that beautifully.
Thanks to that, I find myself trying to avoid opening the main screen for something other than Googling.
