Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 vs Moto Razr+: A clamshell comparison

Samsung has taken the wraps off its latest clamshell-style foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip 5. The new handset’s biggest change is a 3.4-inch cover display that is significantly larger than the 1.9-inch outer panel on last year’s Galaxy Z Flip 4. This should generally make the device more convenient when it’s folded up, as there’s now more space to reply to texts, check notifications, take selfies and the like. Other upgrades include a faster Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and a redesigned hinge that makes the whole package slimmer when folded.The larger external display brings the Galaxy Z Flip 5 much more in line with the Moto Razr+, another flip-style foldable that arrived earlier this year. To assist anyone deciding between the two devices, we’ve laid out how the two devices compare on the spec sheet below. Raw specs can’t tell the whole story, of course: Our Razr+ review found that phone’s camera performance to lag behind its peers, and Samsung and Motorola are taking different approaches to how Android works on the outer display. Still, if you’re thinking of dropping $1,000 on one of these devices, here’s a quick look at the hardware that money will get you.
