In this guide, we have shared with you the steps to Root Motorola Razr 5G using Magisk without TWRP in a very simple way for your ease. In order to root your Motorola Razr 5G, we will use the Magisk to patch the stock boot image and flash that to your device’s boot partition. Now, if you ask why Magisk? It’s a system-less root process that doesn’t tamper with the system partitions while enabling root access.

Motorola Razr 5G Specifications: Overview
The Motorola Razr 5G features a 6.2-inch foldable P-OLED panel with a resolution of 876 x 2142 pixels. When it is in the folded state, another display comes into view. It is a 2.7-inches G-OLED panel with a resolution of 600 x 800 pixels. Coming to the processor, we have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, which is the best mid-range processor on offer from Qualcomm. It is the same processor that we see on the Pixel 5 as well. This is an octa-core processor built on a 7nm manufacturing process. It has 1 Kryo 475 Prime core clocked at 2.4 GHz, 1 Kryo 475 Gold core clocked at 2.2 GHz, and six Kryo 475 Silver cores clocked at 1.8 GHz.
There is only one storage variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. As for the optics, on the rear-side, we get a single 48MP sensor paired with an f/1.7 lens. It comes with OIS and is capable of shooting 4K videos. And coming to the front, we get a single 20MP sensor with an f/2.2 lens. This is capable of recording 1080p videos at 30 or 60 fps.
In terms of connectivity, we get Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, NFC, and USB Type-C 3.1. We get a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication. The battery inside the Razr 5G is a 2800 mAh cell which supports 15W of fast charging. It is available in three color options: Polished Graphite, Blush Gold, and Liquid Mercury. It is quite an expensive phone and sells for around 1500 Euros, but that is what you have to pay for something like a foldable display. There are many more mechanics involved with a folding phone than a normal one and, hence, the premium price for it.
