Motorola resurrects the Razr as a foldable Android smartphone
The Razr returns The Razr is back, but now it’s an Android smartphone that can fold in half. Motorola has officially announced its much-rumored (and much-leaked) modern spin on the iconic flip phone. The 2019 Razr keeps the same general form factor but replaces the T9 keypad and small LCD with a 6.2-inch foldable plastic OLED panel and Android 9 Pie. It’ll cost $1,499 when it arrives in January 2020. The new Razr is a fundamentally different take on the foldable phones that we’ve seen so far: instead of turning a modern-sized phone into a smaller tablet, it turns a conventional-sized smartphone into something much smaller and more pocketable. This isn’t the first time Motorola has tried to bring back the iconic RAZR branding. There was an entire line of fairly generic Droid RAZR phones a few years ago on which Motorola just slapped the name in hopes of reminding customers of its past glory. (You may remember that Motorola styled the old RAZR logo in all caps. For this new model, Motorola is doing the opposite with the lowercase “razr.” Since I’m a human, I’m going to henceforth use “Razr” to refer to the new model.) The new Razr is much more than just a familiar brand name But the new Razr is much more than just a familiar brand name. This is a true heir to the original flip phone, with a design that’s heavily inspired by its 2004 predecessor, right down to the big curved chin on the bottom (which now also hosts a more modern fingerprint sensor and a USB-C charging port). But it’s not just a modern-day throwback hoping to cash in on nostalgia, like we’ve seen from HMD’s resurrections of classic Nokia hardware lately. It’s Motorola’s attempt at building a modern-day flagship phone the likes of which it hasn’t tried to make in years. The core of the phone is, of course, the display. It’s a 6.2-inch 21:9 plastic OLED panel that folds in half along the horizontal axis. Unfolded, it’s not dramatically bigger than any other modern phone, and the extra height is something that the Android interface and apps adapt to far better than a tablet-size screen. The screen does have a notch on top for a speaker and camera and a curved edge on the bottom, which takes a bit of getting used to, but after a minute or two, you barely notice it. There’s also a second, 2.7-inch glass-covered OLED display on the outside that Motorola calls the Quick View display. It can show notifications, music controls, and even a selfie camera mode to take advantage of the better main camera. Motorola is also working with Google to let apps seamlessly transition from the front display to the main one. There are, of course, concerns about durability for the folding display here, especially after Samsung’s Galaxy Fold issues, but Motorola says that it has “full confidence in the durability of the Flex View display” claiming that its research shows that “it will last for the average lifespan of a smartphone.” There’s a proprietary coating to make the panel “scuff resistant,” and it also has an internal nano-coating for splash resistance. (Don’t take it swimming, though.) Motorola says that the entire display is made with a single cut, with the edges entirely enclosed by the stainless steel frame to prevent debris from getting in. The company also points to its years of experience with plastic OLED panels (going back as far as 2011), noting that “We’re not going to go out there and say, ‘consumers should be cautious of how they use the phone.’” Part of that confidence has to do with the hinge, which Motorola worked with Lenovo to make. It uses a complicated mechanism of multiple hinges and sliding plates to fold and unfold the phone. More importantly, it really does seem to live up to Motorola’s promises: the device unfolds to a fully flat panel, with no visible or tactile creases, and then it folds up completely flush. (It’s actually exactly the same thickness folded as the original RAZR.) Holding the folded Razr up to the sun, you can see a crack of daylight shining through, but otherwise, the gap is barely discernible. It’s very impressive and the current high water mark in the still-fledgling foldable market. With all of that out of the way, how does it actually feel to use the new Razr? The answer is great. It’s been years since there’s been a truly viable high-end flip phone, and it’s easy to forget just how enjoyable that flip phone experience is. Picking up the new Razr immediately brings you back. It’s definitely a little hard to get used to folding it with one hand, though. I’ve got bigger hands than most, and it’s still a bit of a juggling act to get it to fold just right. Opening it is easier (although it does take a fair bit of maneuvering to get a thumb in between the two screens, which I guess is a testament to how flat it folds). Once you’ve got it partially cracked open, though, you’re able to just flick it open the rest of the way with your thumb, just like you used to all the time with your original RAZR. Hanging up on people with the Razr is a joy The hinge is also a bit stiff, though, so you won’t be able to just whip it open with a flick of a wrist — closing it with one hand also involves some more finger contortions to start the closing action. It’s just more practical to close it with your other hand. Even with these caveats, the whole opening and closing mechanism is supremely satisfying to do, with crisp snaps in both directions. Snapping shut the phone to hang up on a call is a particular delight — there really is no better way to end a call than the classic flip phone snap, and it’s excellent to see that Motorola has keep it alive here. The hardware feels great too, with solid feeling stainless steel and glass on the outside and a wonderfully textured back that’s nice and grippy — essential for not dropping it while flipping it open and shut. (It is a fingerprint magnet, though). The design isn’t just a novelty, either. The folding design actually solves a lot of the issues on hand with most smartphones today. Think phones are too big? The Razr folds up to fit in nearly any pocket. Worried about getting your screen scratched? The Razr’s is protected at all times. Notifications too distracting? Deal with them on the more limited front display instead of falling down an internet rabbit hole. $1,500 for mid-range specs is a tough sell On the flip side, that Razr design is so core to the experience here that Motorola is compromising a lot on other areas. The processor is a Snapdragon 710 — not a bad chipset, but it’s not a flagship 855 either. The company says that the decision here for the weaker processor is to optimize battery life and heat: in order to have a day-long battery and the thin design, it had to go with a slower chip. The lackluster 16-megapixel camera is a similar decision. Motorola just couldn’t fit a bigger or better camera module while keeping the design it had. Those compromises are tough to swallow when you factor in the Razr’s price. At $1,500, it’s simultaneously the cheapest foldable phones on the market and dramatically more expensive than any flagship device from Apple, Samsung, or Google. That’s a ton of money to spend on a single phone, much less one that’s shipping with mid-range specs. Preorders are set to start on December 26th, but the phone itself won’t ship until January (although there’s no exact dates announced for either.) Lastly, it’ll only be sold on Verizon in the US, at least for now — Motorola had nothing to say about an unlocked version. After a few hours with the 2019 Motorola Razr, I’m still not sure if it’s going to be a good phone, at least not in the conventional sense. It’s too expensive, with specs that are too weak for the price, especially compared to the wealth of more powerful phones with better cameras and hardware that are available. And the foldable display technology is too untested to be truly reliable, even with Motorola’s assurances. But I’m still really excited by the Razr and the fact that it exists. It’s a phone that looks and feels like the future of phones. We’ll have to spend a lot more time with the device to see whether or not Motorola manages to stick the landing on its first attempt, but if nothing else, it’s a bold idea that pushes the concept of what a smartphone looks like forward. And that’s an exciting thing to see.

Party like it’s 2004 with the new Motorola Razr’s secret ‘Retro Razr’ mode
Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge Motorola is bringing the Razr back in the form of a foldable Android phone, but that doesn’t mean that the company is leaving the classic design of the original behind. As a neat tribute to the OG RAZR, Motorola has included a secret “Retro Razr” mode that turns the $1,499 modern smartphone into the spitting image of its 2004-era predecessor. It’s basically a glorified skinned Android launcher The mode is basically a glorified skinned Android launcher that faithfully re-creates the original RAZR UI through software, right down to the classic boot animation. But Motorola has put in some serious work here: the skin is fully functional. Click the button for messaging, and it’ll launch the Android messaging app. Click right to open settings, and the settings app will launch. The best part is dialing a phone number, which features the same pop-up UI as the original, including the sounds. And while the entire 2019 Razr is a giant touchscreen, Motorola made the retro mode as authentic as possible. The only way to navigate it is by using the (software) buttons on the keypad. (You can’t simply tap on the address book icon.) Photo by Chaim Gartenberg / The Verge The throwback mode is hidden away in Android’s quick setting menu. To find it, you’ll have to edit which items show up in the drop-down menu and then drag the Retro Razr button into the menu. Once it’s there, just swipe down like you’d normally do to activate Airplane Mode or adjust the brightness and tap the newly revealed Retro Razr button instead to launch the Easter egg. Is it useful? Not really. But it’s a cute and clever way for Motorola to pay homage to the original RAZR, even as it moves boldly forward with this new, modern version. (Also, never underestimate the power of nostalgia.)

Divers retrieve hundreds of bottles of booze from a World War I shipwreck
In 1917, Swedish steamer ship Kyros was traveling from France to Russia when a German U-boat sunk it in the Baltic Sea. The shipwreck was discovered in 1999 but it wasn't until the last month that a team of divers from Ocean X and iXplorer have hauled up the sunken treasure: 600 bottles of De Haartman & Co. cognac and 300 bottles of Benedictine (now Bacardi) liqueur meant for Tsar Nicholas II. From Smithsonian: (Expedition leader Peter) Lindberg and his colleagues have sent samples of both the cognac and the Benedictine to a laboratory to gauge whether the alcohol is still fit for consumption. They are optimistic regarding the outcome of these tests, according to Metcalfe, as the Baltic’s freezing waters are actually ideal for storing spirits. Although some of the bottles contain sediment, many remain sealed. Several cognac bottles even have intact tin seals... As Lindberg tells CNN’s Gianluca Mezzofiore and David Williams, he and the rest of the team detected a slight scent of sweetened herbs coming from the Benedictine bottles... Earlier this year, two bottles of 17th-century wine discovered by Ocean X went up for auction at Christie’s. And in 2011, a 200-year-old bottle of champagne found in another Baltic shipwreck sold for a record-breaking $43,000. images: OceanXTeam on Instagram Read the rest

The political shock of Brexit provided a new impetus and now as Scottish voters contemplate the election of 2019, they are being prompted to think about it as a chance to consider their future not just in the EU but in the UK as well.
