Grab a brand-new, unlocked Galaxy S20+ 5G with 12GB of RAM for $900 from eBay

The new Motorola Razr is what the first one should have been

Motorola became one of the first device makers to sell a foldable phone when it launched the Razr in early 2020. It's already time for the sequel with better specs, design, and features. It's also a little cheaper, and it won't be exclusive to Verizon. Even without the device in-hand, it sounds much more appealing than the first-gen. Although, it's still a $1,399.99 phone with mid-range specs and unproven display technology.
