Now, nearly 6 months later, both the Razr 40 and the Razr 40 Ultra have now received a price cut of Rs 10,000 in the Indian region. Does it make it a steal deal or do you have better options in the price range? Let’s take a look.

The Motorola Razr 40 launched for Rs 59,999 for the single 8GB + 256GB model. After the price cut, the handset is now being sold for Rs 49,999, which makes it the cheapest foldable smartphone available in India.
Now, while a foldable has it’s benefits of looking unique and also serving as a more apt form factor for those who do not like the regular slab style phones, there are much better smartphones available in the market that offer a much better overall value.

Aside from this, you also get cheaper iQOO Neo 7 Pro, OnePlus 11R, and the Galaxy S23 which are superior to the Motorola Razr 40 in some or the other manner.
