Motorola Razr (2019) vs Samsung Galaxy Fold vs Huawei Mate X: Design

Unlike regular smartphones, all of which pretty much look exactly the same, the smartphone makers are experimenting with different form factors for their foldable smartphones. The same can be seen in Motorola Razr (2019), Samsung Galaxy Fold, and Huawei Mate X, as each of these phones looks different from other. With Motorola Razr, the Lenovo-owned smartphone brand has gone with a clamshell design where the primary flexible display is folded in half. The company has also included a secondary display to help consumers avoid opening the phone for small tasks like checking notifications or controlling music. Samsung Galaxy Fold also includes two displays but it look more like a small folded tablet. The Samsung foldable phone is also relatively thicker, larger, and heavier because of a larger battery capacity and screen size.
