comparative motorola razr vs samsung galaxy fold hands on reviewRiley Young / Digital Trends

Samsung did everything imaginable for its first foldable phone, introducing as much hardware as possible in the Galaxy Fold. It comes with the powerful Snapdragon 855, a huge 12 GB RAM and 512 GB of storage. There is no expansion slot for MicroSD card, but it hardly seems necessary. These specifications will be excessive in normal smart phones, but with the huge internal screen of the Galaxy Fold and its great multitasking potential, a lot of hardware is required to keep the Galaxy Fold's performance smooth and smooth.

Motorola has not used the best specifications on its flagships for a while, and nothing seems to have changed with the Motorola Razr. Instead, you will find the mid-range Snapdragon 710, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, without expansion for MicroSD. They are good specifications, but you apply them with the latest 3D games and you may see a slowdown. That storage of 128 GB is quite ample, but for movie or movie lovers gamers, the lack of additional space can hurt. Even so, the performance is good.

We have not had the opportunity to try the Razr battery, but we are really worried that the capacity of 2,150 mAh has a hard time spending the day. Most modern flagships use at least 3,000 mAh, and such a small battery could mean a disaster for Motorola's folding. The massive internal screen of the Galaxy Fold requires a much larger 4,380 mAh battery to be able to use it throughout the day. Only the Galaxy Fold has wireless charging, although both have similar levels of fast charging.
