  • - Hey, we are here at Samsung's Unpacked Event

  • looking at the Galaxy Z Flip, but I decided to

  • be sneaky and bring in the Motorola Razr

  • and I want to compare these two phones real quick.

  • So the first thing is both of these phones

  • are basically the same idea.

  • They are folding phones that fold into a

  • portrait mode so it fits in fits in your pocket

  • a little bit better then folds out to a very tall

  • narrow screen.

  • However, the Galaxy Z Flip does a bunch of stuff

  • that the Motorola Razr kinda didn't get right.

  • So the first thing is that it has a glass screen,

  • instead of a plastic screen, like on the Razr,

  • and like on other phones.

  • And that glass screen means that you are much

  • less likely to scratch it.

  • That's what Samsung claims and I kinda believe them,

  • because I've run my fingernail over this thing and

  • I haven't managed to scratch it,

  • in a way where if I were doing it on the Razr,

  • I totally would have scratched it.

  • However, there are a couple of other differences

  • to pay attention to, so because it's glass

  • and because it's the way Samsung does hinges,

  • there is a tiny little gap here that you can see

  • when you fold it closed, whereas on the

  • Motorola Razr, it folds completely flat.

  • And that's because, with the plastic screen,

  • Motorola was able to make the sort of

  • teardrop inside the hinge when you close it

  • so that the thing can fold completely flat.

  • What that means though for Motorola is that

  • you can really feel a lot of more bumps

  • and grooves and weird things on it's screen,

  • whereas on the Z Flip, you can feel the crease

  • but it's a lot less prominent than it is on the Razr.

  • The other thing I'll say is they have different

  • ideas on how the hinge should work,

  • beyond being gapless when they're closed.

  • So the Razr has a pretty loose hinge.

  • You can kinda flip it open with one hand,

  • it's a little bit nerve wracking to do it,

  • but you can pull it off.

  • The Z Flip however, has a much stiffer hinge.

  • It is a lot harder to open with one hand,

  • and it doesn't like, flip out.

  • The reason that Samsung does that is

  • they want you to be able to look at it at an angle,

  • set it on a table and see, if you want to like,

  • watch a video or something.

  • But, you know, I think there's benefits and drawbacks

  • to both.

  • On the whole though, I think I prefer Samsung's hinge.

  • Samsung has a fingerprint sensor, so does

  • the Motorola Razr.

  • Samsung's is on the side where the power button is,

  • and that maybe is a little bit more convenient

  • because it's sort of one action to open it

  • and hit the thing, whereas on the Razr,

  • you've got to flip it open and

  • hit the fingerprint sensor on the bottom,

  • but the main difference here to me

  • beyond the glass screen is the Z Flip has

  • just way more impressive specs.

  • Motorola, in order to get the battery life that it wanted

  • on this thing, went with a relatively slow

  • Snapdragon processor, I think it's the 710

  • and this doesn't feel all that pokey,

  • but it's not as impressive as what's in this thing,

  • which is a Snapdragon 855 plus.

  • It is also paired to 256 gigs of storage and

  • 8 gigs of RAM.

  • The other spec that's better on this phone

  • and frankly the one that's way more important to me

  • than the processor, are the cameras.

  • This has two cameras and they're Samsung's 12 megapixel

  • cameras, one of them is an ultrawide.

  • And, Motorola just has one, it's a 16 megapixel sensor.

  • And, we've got the review for the Razr coming,

  • but I'm just going to tell you right now,

  • that, Motorola is not as good at cameras as Samsung is

  • so I have way more faith that the Z Flip is going to

  • have a better camera than Motorola does.

  • Last and maybe not least is they both

  • have different philosophies for what the screen

  • on the outside should be, so Motorola

  • has this really big thing they call peek display.

  • You can look at notifications on it,

  • you can take selfies with it of course,

  • so it can get the little selfie camera up there going.

  • And so it's like a big relatively usable display,

  • but it's mostly sort of like a smartwatch.

  • Samsung took the same idea, but theirs is just itty bitty.

  • It's this little tiny display here.

  • You can swipe over to see notifications,

  • you can answer calls and do a bunch of other stuff.

  • You can even take selfies with it with that insanely

  • tiny little viewfinder there.

  • It's just a different idea and it's not quite

  • as useful as Motorola's, but for me,

  • I think that trade might be worth it because

  • instead of having a whole bunch of

  • screen real estate here, they have battery real estate,

  • and the Z Flip has I think, on the whole,

  • a bigger battery than the Moto Razr,

  • which is again, another thing that you might want.

  • So on the whole, what do I think?

  • Well, we gotta get full reviews of these

  • things out, so don't take this as final judgment,

  • but the thing that Motorola managed to do is be first.

  • It got out the door first.

  • If you could find one, they got out the door first,

  • and good on them, but this is much more refined,

  • and I think makes way more sense if you're interested

  • in a folding phone.

  • The other reason this thing is a little bit nicer,

  • it costs less.

  • This is $1499, this is $1380.

  • Hey everybody, thanks for watching, like I said,

  • we've got a review of the Razr coming,

  • and we've already shot it.

  • We're working on it right now and

  • we are definitely looking forward to

  • reviewing this thing, it comes out on February 14th

  • and we're going to get our hands on one as soon as possible.
