Luxor, 03 Nov 2017You make it sound like this phone capable of playing Overwatch or something. Well that's a different story lol. but based on the presentation, it opened a path for game developers to produce more competitive mobile games and special game versions of currently released games since they want to see their games in it's full potential.

It looks pretty cool, but this whole no headphone jack thing apple started is annoying.
For no 3.5mm headphone jack there should be have been aptX or aptXHD for Bluetooth headphones, Bluetooth speakers and for bluetooth car audio, all 3 which I use
The aspect ratio of the display was also on purpose, If you people are familiar, 16:9 ratio is the sweetspot for PC gaming and this will make it look natural for gamers. With this they maximized the bezels by using front facing stereo speakers (I do hope they didn't use foam because this was one of the issues of Google Pixel). We have yet to see it's actual use in the market. let's just hope the screen doesn't pop out or it's battery explode.
There are alot of things people dont understand about this phone in terms of design and what makes it a "gaming phone." Design wise, by making the phone a block razer was able to maximize the surface area of the phone that's why they were able to fit a 4k battery in it. Now what makes it a "gaming phone"? well every flagship phone can be considered a gaming worth phone but what separates it to other flagship phones is the display and the technology behind the display. 120Hz doesnt mean much but because of "Ultramotion Technology" the application of the refresh rate of the screen is properly implemented in games (Refer to Gsync and Freesync Gaming monitors). Winning is everything in gaming, that is why Ultramotion is the real highlight of the Razer Phone and not the 8GB RAM or it's 4K Battery.
RickyG512, 03 Nov 2017No aptX or aptXHD? :(all snapdragon 620+, 650+ and 820+ processors support it

Does anybody know what 12MP sensors are these? imx386 or imx362 or something else?

Razer probably ran out of room to put it, and to me it's not a huge deal to use a dongle. I have also saw ZTE phones have the charging port on the side, which I thought was odd.
Really like the 16:9 screen as opposed to 18:9 crap; external sd card is great;
but a few shortcomings IMHO, for the flagship price it warrants:
not water resistent
no 3,5mm jack,
no IR blaster
no glonass, galileo, etc.
BT4.2 instead of BT5
It would be more Gamer phone if it had dual earjack, one for sound and one for mic, but specs are not so bad

Saw in passing and was like "Whaat, what phone is that?". Haven't looked in to it though, I'm guessing a quick Google would give me a model lists and some opinions on the matter.
What are the benefits of having it side-mounted?
