Motorola Razr 40, Razr 40 Ultra Review

The long-awaited Motorola Razr 40 Ultra has raised the ante in the clamshell foldable market with a completely unique-looking clamshell phone, thanks to the enormous cover display, which is the largest ever on a clamshell foldable phone.

Motorola will sell two clamshell foldable Razr phones this year: the Razr 40 and 40 Ultra (also known as Razr+ in North America).

The updated specifications list looks to be great and the emphasis of this review is on the more expensive Ultra, which features a few significant variations from the 2022 Razr.

The design has changed the most, which is important because today's foldables are largely aimed at design-conscious consumers.


It's worth noticing the hardware changes. Motorola has adjusted the hinge, reducing the space between the two sections of the chassis when closed; they've also reduced the bezels surrounding the primary display, making the creaseless visible; and, last, they've added a very usable outside display.

The 3.6-inch exterior screen isn't just for seeing alerts or other contextual data.

Because Motorola worked closely with app developers, a few apps, such as Netflix, Disney+, and Spotify, are optimised for usage on the cover display.

It is also an excellent viewfinder for the primary camera. However, there is also a selfie camera on the inside.


On the inside, the Razr 40 Ultra is a mix of old and modern hardware. While the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC remains, the device's previous display has been replaced with a faster and bigger one.

The primary display may now run at 165Hz, while the secondary one operates at 144Hz.

The battery capacity has also been raised to 3,800 mAh, although the charging speed has not improved.


The 40 Ultra, on the other hand, will offer wireless charging this year, which is a must-have feature in the luxury segment.

The camera subsystem, particularly the main camera, receives a little upgrade.

It's no longer a Quad-Bayer camera, but it does have a standard 12MP sensor with big pixels and a lens with a wide f/1.5 aperture.

The phone comes in a standard box, unfolded, with the typical user instructions and the appropriate 30W TurboPower wall charger with USB-A, as well as a USB-C to USB-A charging and data transfer connection.

However, the charger is not included in the box for North American buyers.

There is also a two-piece protective case with a robust and transparent surface.

The Motorola Razr 40 Ultra costs €1,199 (Naira 852 044,37).

The phone is known as the "Motorola Razr+" in the United States.
