Galaxy Z Flip: How Samsung’s latest foldable phone is different from Motorola Razr
Galaxy Z Flip is Samsung’s latest and second foldable smartphone. It looks like the Moto Razr but here’s how it’s different.
Samsung launched its second foldable phone at the company's Unpacked 2020 event. The Galaxy Z Flip comes in a clamshell foldable design which folds into a tiny and compact phone. Samsung will start selling the Galaxy Z Flip first in the US on February 14.
Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip offers a different foldable design from last year's Galaxy Fold. It looks more like a flip phone but with the foldable display goodness. But it isn't the most unique foldable phone out there as it offers a similar functionality like the Moto Razr 2019.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip looks similar to the Moto Razr 2019 but here's how it's different.
Galaxy Z Flip and Moto Razr both offer the same folding mechanism but differ in terms of design. Samsung's Galazy Z Flip forms a proper square box when folded and opens up to a tall horizontal display.
Motorola's foldable phone features the classic Razr design from the 2000s. The phone is all-screen but it has a bottom bezel lifted on a platform with a power button just like the older Razr.
Display is a major differentiator between the two foldable phones. Galazy Z Flip features a glass foldable display making it the first to do so. In terms of specs, the Galaxy Z Flip has a 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display. The foldable phone also automatically splits the screen into two which Samsung aptly calls it the 'Flex mode'.
The Moto Razr comes with a 6.2-inch OLED display. One thing the Galaxy Z Flip misses out on is a bigger secondary display which is a 2.7-inch (800x600 pixels) on the Moto Razr. The Galaxy Z Flip has a small 1.1-inch outer screen which is big enough to house notifications, alarms and missed calls.
Other than the flashy and futuristic design, the Galaxy Z Flip also offers the premium Qualcomm processor. The foldable phone is powered by the 7nm Snapdragon 855+ processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage. The Moto Razr uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It also has a smaller 2,510mAh battery as compared to the 3,300mAh battery on the Galaxy Z Flip.
Not a parameter but the price difference can be pointed out for the two foldable phones. Both the Galaxy Z Flip and Moto Razr are expensive phones but the former has a lower price tag of $1,380. In comparison, the Moto Razr is priced at $1,499.
