the phone has everything to be a good handheld, except good and convenient controls and modern titles that arent microtransaction shit. I doubt this will gain enough momentum for development of more than a handful of exclusives. a clever design with actual buttons (like a psp) that extend to the side and can be folded in and out would make all the difference, and it would be huge, because everybody would want to play classic ps2 games with it on the go. Carrying a bluetooth controller with you would be inconvenient, and touchscreen controls are only somewhat acceptable for one 3d genre, and thats shooters (I remember modern combat 2 on ios played really really well, but it takes some getting used to and isnt for everyone). besides that its a good concept for a handheld. i actually like the design, 120hz is great, provided someone wants to pay 750$ to play cheap shooters on a touch screen, the size is quite right and tons of endurance
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2017i think they suggest bluetooth headset..That's still not a reason to strip the device of its analog output. Even phones with headphone socket can output the sound to bluetooth headset when necessary.
Not to mention Bluetooth add noticeable latency, worsen audio quality and largely limit the choice of compatible devices, whereas 1/8" TRS has been industry standard for almost 100 years.
Guys why complain? It has a massive 4000mAh battery. Dual camera. 8GB of RAM. SD Card slot. NFC. Snapdragon 835. 1440p screen with first 120hz refresh rate. 64GB Internal
Storage. Also it will get Android 8.0 and you will be able to root it without any hassle. Dolby Atmos+ Stereo Speakers.
As for Gorilla Glass 3 etc. Who cares? Get a case and screen protector and learn not to drop your phones! It's made of aluminum anyway so if you dropped it from high enough even with Gorilla Glass 5 the screen would probably break.
I have already pre-ordered it.
XtremE16, 02 Nov 2017Looks like a sony xperia and they also copied figureprint style from Sony.... Yeah right, same looks , power button , and front facing speaker ,
they should make another variant of this phone. 3000 mah battery and maybe snapdragon 820 but absolutely it should be thinner than this. of course price is high. Price should be around 499 usd
Im sold, 8GB of RAM, 4000mah battery, 120hz screen Nova Built-in. SOunds amazing. Only thing I see lacking is, no headphone jack, Bluetooth 4.2 instead of 5 and lack of water proofing.
120hz display is the future. once you experienced the smoothness you'll never go back.
i'll wait for the battery endurance and camera dxomark. if its all good, this will be my phone next.
razer just stuck with the square design because of the nextbit robin and I think it looks good especially with those kind of speakers and all the goodies it comes with for a cheaper price than an s8 id take the razer any day I honestly thought it would of cost a fortune
No clue why all of you are crying about a headphone jack. Buy a bluetooth line in for your car and move on already.
awesome screen? check
speakers pointed in the correct direction? check
decently sized battery? check
competitive chipset, and good amount of ram? check.
cheaper than the samsung note 8? check.
i dont see a problem.
