Foldables are a costly investment, and due to their construction, they’re best not left to someone who would consider themselves to have butter fingers. I personally loved my time with a Galaxy Fold review unit, but at around $2,000, is it a device I would purchase with my own money ? Nope. It’s cool, but not $2,000 cool.
Now we have the new Razr foldable from Motorola. Priced at $1,500, this device piques the hell out of my interest, given its sturdier looking design, plus, that price could even be considered reasonable for a foldable phone. The issue then comes down to its specs. For a $1,500 smartphone in late 2019, they plain suck, but it’s still a foldable and there will be no shortage of fans who claim, “It’s the future!”
My question to you is, at what price are you willing to take the foldable plunge? I know for a fact that cost is one of factors that might’ve kept you away from the Galaxy Fold. Is $1,500 closer to where you want to be to get your hands on futuristic bendy display tech? Will an eventual (albeit far down the road) sub-$1,500 price be the sweet spot for foldables?
What’s your take on foldable pricing?
