Not long ago, new clamshell foldables from Samsung and Motorola were both introduced. The Motorola Razr 2022 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will be contrasted in this post. When compared to the previous generation model, Motorola’s new foldable actually has a different design and now even more closely resembles the Z Flip 4. However, from a design perspective, it is simple to distinguish between the two phones.
However, there are certain design affinities between them. They also have some internal similarities, but overall, they are very different. They are both high-end handsets, but at the time this article was being written, the Motorola Razr 2022 still hadn’t launched internationally. Although the Motorola Razr 2022 is a little more reasonable, when/if it is released in other areas, it is likely to cost about the same as the Galaxy Z Flip 4.

On the back of the Razr 2022 is Gorilla Glass 5, whereas the Galaxy Z Flip 4 features Gorilla Glass Victus. Both have a display camera hole in the center, however they differ somewhat in overall shape. In general, the Razr 2022 is curvier on all sides. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 favors a boxy appearance. The two cameras on the rear of each devices are there, despite their visual differences.
Advertisement The Razr 2022s is placed below the cameras, while the Galaxy Z Flip 4s cover display is placed exactly next to them. Both phones have hidden hinges when folded, and both are very slippery in the hand. Given how slippery and pricey they are, using a case might not be a terrible idea. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 has an IPX8 rating, making it water resistant. Despite not having an official IP classification, the Motorola Razr 2022 has a water-repellent covering.
While both main displays are the same size, Motorola’s cover panel is noticeably larger; more on that later. The Razr 2022 is significantly broader and slightly higher when unfolded compared to the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The Razr 2022 is a little bit heavier and thicker than Samsung’s foldable. While Motorola’s device weights 200 grams, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 weighs just 187 grams. You will undoubtedly notice the width difference. Both of them do feel upscale in the hand.
MOTOROLA RAZR 2022 VS SAMSUNG GALAXY Z FLIP 4: DISPLAY The primary displays on these two phones are the same size, but their screens are not at all the same. A 6.7-inch fullHD (2640 x 1080) Foldable Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel is available on the Galaxy Z Flip 4. That flat display has a refresh rate of 120Hz. Additionally, it supports HDR10 video and has a maximum brightness of 1,200 nits. The phone’s 1.9-inch Super AMOLED cover display has a resolution of 1080p. It has a 260 x 512 resolution and Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

The main panel of the Motorola Razr 2022 measures 6.7 inches in fullHD (2400 x 1080). That P-OLED display can support up to 1 billion different colors and is foldable. Additionally, it supports HDR10 coating and a 144Hz refresh rate. The phone’s 2.7-inch G-OLED panel serves as the cover display. By the way, it has a resolution of 573 x 800. The Galaxy Z Flip 4’s cover display and this one are both flat.
The four displays are all of high caliber. They are nonetheless good despite not being the finest. The main panel of the Galaxy Z Flip 4s does become slightly brighter than the one on the Razr 2022, but not significantly. All displays have excellent viewing angles, excellent touch sensitivity, and are generally extremely responsive. They are more than sharp enough and quite vivid. On these panels, we essentially don’t receive any complaints. One thing to keep in mind is that the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s crease is more obvious than the Razr 2022’s.
Advertisement MOTOROLA RAZR 2022 vs. SAMSUNG GALAXY Z FLIP 4: Performance These cellphones’ Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoCs power both of them. That is currently one of the best mobile processors available. This is combined with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash storage in both phones. While the Motorola Razr 2022 is available with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 comes with 8GB of RAM out of the box. Additionally, both phones mix all of that with Android 12 and unique skins.
Does it lead to effective performance? Indeed, it does. There aren’t many performance-related issues. They are easily handling all of it, no matter what display you use or what you do with the phone. There is a chance of occasional stuttering, but nothing more. The ability to play graphically demanding games on either of these phones is also not a problem. That is to be expected given their construction and cost. Additionally, they don’t really heat up. Naturally, they warm up while gaming (this applies to their primary displays as well), but not to an uncomfortable degree.
MOTOROLA RAZR 2022 VS SAMSUNG GALAXY Z FLIP 4: BATTERY While the Motorola Razr 2022 has a 3,500mAh battery, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 has a 3,700mAh battery. Both phones have more battery capacity and better all-around battery life. The Motorola Razr 2022 hasn’t been put to the test yet, and the international variant presumably has different battery statistics. There is a definite improvement in battery life between the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and its predecessor.
Advertisement We frequently experienced daytime device failures with the Galaxy Z Flip 3, but not with the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Although its battery life is still not great, it will still last for the majority of people’s days without needing to be recharged. Added battery capacity and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1’s power efficiency result in that improvement.
Charges, what about them? The Motorola Razr 2022 supports 33W charging, whilst the Galaxy Z Flip 4 enables 25W wired charging. Because of its smaller battery size and faster charging rate, the Razr 2022 will charge considerably faster. Additionally, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 supports 4.5W reverse wireless charging as well as 15W wireless charging. Only cable charging is available for the Motorola smartphone.
MOTOROLA RAZR 2022 VS SAMSUNG GALAXY Z FLIP 4: CAMERAS On the rear of each smartphone are two cameras. Both a 12-megapixel wide-angle and 12-megapixel ultrawide camera are available on the Galaxy Z Flip 4. A 50-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera are both used by the Razr 2022. Although both of these phones have excellent cameras, the results you’ll get from them are rather different.

In comparison to the Galaxy Z Flip 3, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 does have better camera performance. That is understandable given the newly incorporated sensor. It provides sharper, more colorful visuals. The images come out extremely colorful, and the phone performs well in scenarios requiring a large dynamic range. It also performs well in low light, but not as well as some other high-end gadgets available.
When compared to the Galaxy Z Flip 4, the Motorola Razr 2022 can produce nice images, but they often appear a little subdued. But some folks will favor that. Performance in low light is adequate but not outstanding. Both phones’ ultrawide cameras perform admirably, but nothing extraordinary. Although we prefer the selfie camera on the Galaxy Z Flip 4, selfie cameras produce notably different results.
Audio advertisement There are stereo speakers built into each of these devices. These days, even mid-range and high-end gadgets are expected to perform in that manner. But how soundproof are those speakers? Yes, they certainly are. AKG has tuned the Galaxy Z Flip 4s’ audio, and it offers 32-bit audio. Even if the Motorola Razr 2022’s speakers aren’t quite as clear and sharp, they’re still good.
Why not mention the audio jack? In any case, neither of these phones has it. For audio demands, you have the option of using Bluetooth or the Type-C connector. The Motorola Razr 2022 is rumored to include Bluetooth 5.2, which is the same as what the Galaxy Z Flip 4 has. However, we can’t confirm this.
