  • The Razor B three will always stand as a testament to the power of really striking design razor.

  • We salute you when talking wistfully about the original raiser.

  • It's easy to get caught up in the aesthetics, but it's important to remember that Motorola achieved that sleek profile through innovative design.

  • At the time, this was the slimmest clamshell design on the market.

  • The keypad addressed the increasing shift towards texting by offering buttons that felt huge for the time but made typing a breeze compared to other T nine options.

  • The original raiser might seem small in hindsight, but it was actually quite wide by then.

  • Current industry standards.

  • This was a necessary design choice to accommodate the tech.

  • It also served to give the user a larger than average screen, a design choice that acknowledged the burgeoning interest in mobile gaming.

  • The new Motorola razor comes with its own fair share of innovations.

  • The most obvious difference from older models is the foldable screen.

  • This means a larger screen that takes up less space and cannot be easily scratched in a pocket or purse.

  • Unlike many other foldable phones, which fold vertically, the new razor states true to its roots and folds horizontally with that satisfying flip motion.

  • Motorola collaborated with Lenovo to design a hinge that's actually an elaborate system of different hinges.

  • Working in conjunction with sliding plates.

  • The result is a hinge that feels a bit more rigid than the original but sturdy and a screen that seamless when unfolded.

  • While the flip still feels similar in terms of specs, the old and new razors are worlds apart.

  • It's kind of mind blowing to look back and think that the first razor in 2004 had 5.5 megabytes of internal memory and no card slot simpler times.

  • By contrast, the model released in early 2020 features a snapdragon 7 10 G processor, six gigs of RAM and 128 gigabytes of storage.

  • The battery capacity is 2800 million powers.

  • The original raiser came with a 1.3 megapixel camera, eventually getting up to two megapixels and subsequent models, some with a secondary camera.

  • It can also shoot four K video.
