Weird flex but OK... Motorola's comeback is a $1,500 Razr flip-phone with folding 6.2" screen

Then buy a cheap mobile phone.

A smart "phone" is only nominally a phone. It's a portable computer that we choose to name after its oldest function.

Most people like having the convenience of having a very small very powerful computer they can carry around. Some people don't value that.

That's fine, but they are two completely different markets. Both choices are valid.

I don't get why you are complaining about the availability of something which will be useful to some people that aren't you.

I won't be buying one - it's quite a way out of my (~ £250 every ~ 2 years ) budget too, but if people want it then that's up to them.
