The Razr 40 Ultra was officially launched in Europe this Thursday, June 15, being the first rival for the Galaxy Z Flip line to arrive in our country since 2019 with the first foldable Razr. With a suggested price of R$ 7,999, it offers a good set of cameras and a large external screen that covers almost half of the rear panel, something that makes it much more elegant and modern than the current Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.

The set includes 6.9-inch pOLED screen with FHD+ resolution and 165 Hz rate, 3.63-inch AMOLED secondary screen with 1056 x 1066 pixels resolution and 144 Hz rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 platform, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage and a dual camera of 12 MP (main) + 13 MP (ultrawide/macro). The battery is 3,800 mAh, with TurboPower recharge of 33W and charger included in the box.

Our official battery test is run with many popular apps, games, and services in timed cycles until the battery drains completely, with standby time between cycles to track background consumption. Screen brightness and network settings are standardized so that we can draw a parallel between all the models that have passed through our benches.

The apps present in the cycles, and their specific execution times per cycle, are:

  • 6 minutes of use (each) — WhatsApp, YouTube, MX Player (offline video), Spotify, PowerAmp (offline music) and Chrome;
  • 1 minute (each) — Pokémon Go, Asphalt 8, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Modern Combat 5, and Injustice;
  • 4 minutes of 3G/4G calls;
  • 2 minutes of use (each) — Facebook, Gmail and GMaps

After our tests with the Razr 40 Ultra, we arrived at the following results:

  • It took 25 hours and 54 minutes for the device to turn off;
  • The screen remained on for 13 hours and 17 minutes in the period;
  • We performed 20 full test cycles, including:
    • 120 minutes of browsing on Chrome;
    • 600 minutes of WhatsApp, Spotify, PowerAmp, MX Player and YouTube (120 minutes each);
    • 120 minutes of games (Pokémon Go, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Injustice, Modern Combat 5 and Asphalt 8);
    • 120 minutes of Facebook, Gmail and Google Maps (40 minutes each);
    • 80 minutes of voice calls via 3G/4G;
  • The app that consumed the most was Pokémon Go.

The Razr 40 Ultra has a larger battery than its great rival in the domestic market, including not only the current Galaxy Z Flip 4 with its 3,700 mAh battery but also the predecessor Galaxy Z Flip 3 with 3,300 mAh battery. And that, as expected, gives the Motorola model some extra time away from the shots, but it goes further.

With almost 26 hours of total time in our hands-on real-world simulation test, the Razr 40 Ultra not only outperformed its flip-style rivals, but also the Galaxy Z Fold 4 itself with its larger 4,400 mAh battery, being virtually tied with the Edge 30 Ultra, Motorola’s current bar-shaped flagship, which brings almost 1,000 mAh more than the foldable cell phone in terms of battery capacity.

This reinforces not only that the Razr 40 Ultra is the best foldable in terms of autonomy today (at least among the options tested by TechSmart and available in Europe), but also that it is finally a good option for users who were afraid to bet on a foldable precisely because of the small battery, and now they can finally have a device capable of enduring more than one day of use with peace of mind, as has been the case with conventional cell phones for some time.

It is also worth remembering that the Razr 40 Ultra comes with a 33W TurboPower charger in the box, guaranteeing a few hours of use with a few minutes in the socket.
