Choose Flipphone: Razr or Galaxy?
With the revival of flip phones, two of the biggest players in the smartphone industry, Motorola and Samsung, are set to release their next-gen flip phones to battle it out.
The past decade has seen a transition from flip phones to smartphones, and now, a resurgence of the former. In 2019, Samsung attempted to introduce their original foldable phone, which failed. On the other hand, Motorola is set to return with its foldable Razr smartphone, which beats Samsung’s new Galaxy Flip phone model.
Battle of the Flip Phones
The battle between Lenovo’s Razr smartphone and Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip phone is the first of its kind in the smartphone industry. However, they have distinguished themselves from each other with their unique features and designs.
The Moto Razr smartphone provides a refined and elegant form factor, featuring a single backside camera. The battery life may be subpar and its processing power may leave some wanting more, but its ThinQ technology is a plus, providing accessibility to Google Assistant with a single press of a button.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip phone is bulkier but offers a larger display. The flip phone is expected to have a 6.9” AMOLED display and a superior camera layout compared to Motorola’s Razr smartphone.
New Wave of Foldable Devices
In late 2019, devices with dual displays in a folding form factor were introduced and are set to hit the market in 2020. Microsoft’s ‘Surface Neo,’ a folding tablet, and Surface Duo, the company’s first smartphone, are due to debut. Dell and HP are also set to deliver similar designs, so the market will be flooded with foldable devices soon enough.
Winner Yet to be Determined
The competition between Motorola and Samsung is fierce, and a winner cannot be declared until all foldable devices have hit the market. The Microsoft Surface Neo folding tablet is the most eagerly anticipated device. Microsoft is challenging the iPad Pro, and the Surface Neo is expected to surpass it in performance and design.
While the battle between Motorola and Samsung for the next-gen flip phones will continue to dominate coverage in the days and weeks to come, whether flip phones will gain traction and achieve a mass market appeal is yet to be determined.
