The Motorola Razr is many things. It’s one of the first foldable phones you can buy right now. It’s a feat of engineering from a storied mobile brand. It’s a Verizon exclusive. (Sigh.) What the Razr absolutely isn’t, though, is practical.

For some of you reading this, that’s not going to be an issue. The Razr is as style-forward as the classic model that came before it, and maybe that’s enough. But Motorola and Verizon are asking people to pay $1,500 for this thing — a certain degree of practicality is a must. At the risk of immediately spoiling the rest of this review, the Razr won’t run faster, last longer or take better pictures than literally any other phone in this price range. It’s a fashion statement, not a flagship.

Like I said, maybe that’s enough for some. But for everyone else, for people who are more likely than ever to hold on to their smartphone for years, is a compromised phone like the Razr really worth the splurge? I think we both know the answer to that.
