Talking about 120 Hz shall be refers to 'judder' (flicker) issue instead of 'frame rate' issue. It's linked to electricity service. Usually our electricity rated as 50/60Hz. With advancements it's doubled to 100/120 Hz (depend on electricity service); which usually market as 240Hz. All higher end TV set uses >=120 Hz to minimize judder issue. Only sensitive people will notice, no matter gamer or not.

512GB internal storage plus... moreNaaah... give me an i7-7700 or i7-8700, 32GB DDR4, GTX1080ti, 480GB NVME SSD, and a portable nuclear powerplant. Android can run X86 too so that shouldn't be a big problem, right? Put all this in the size of a Note 8 and I'm good.
Okay, the powerplant can be inside a battery-bumper-cover. But that's the only compromise I'm willing to make :-)

Is this actually useful when your game can't even reach 60 frames per second?
I'm playing games on a relatively high-end PC (i7-6700, 16GB Ram+GTX1070) on a 28" FHD (1080p) HDR monitor, which is also 60Hz like most IPS-LCD monitors out there, and I don't see how a 120Hz panel would give me a better gaming experience.
This is all marketing crap just like QHD-resolutions on a phone. It's nice that these things are technically possible and probably great to show off, but they don't really add anything to improve (gaming) life.
I'd rather have a headphone jack so I can play games without annoying everybody else around me. I'd also rather have a good quality 60Hz FHD screen which gives me more frames per second and that hour extra battery-power. And what about a great bluetooth controller to go with my gaming phone (or as clip-on accessory)? And while you're at it... a few AA-games in the bundle would be nice to? Perhaps a few freebie Steam games?
Razer? Helloooooooooo? Wake up? Gamers talking?
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2017Or maybe Nintendo Switch/the almost dead PSVita. Heck PSP/3DS/DS have huge game libraries.Why not go for a high performance PC and a VR-HMD?
I've seen the price o/t Rift coming down to acceptable levels (including touch controllers and tracking-sensors). Though I'll wait for the Pimax 5K and especially the LG Steam-VR bundle. These look like 2 interesting upcoming HTC Vive alternatives.

i would really like to see a razer tablet since nvidia killed the shield and dont care for the tablet market anymore.. so if razor launched a super fast tablet they would sell alot of those...
JMTM, 05 Nov 2017If you are really getting a phone for serious gaming, only an idiot will buy android... iPhone... moreReally?
-Android has better battery life and battery charge
-Android has much better screen (except the X)
-Cant log in on Android phones if you use iPhone for gaming before
-Only can be purchased via credit card
If you are really getting a phone for serious gaming, only an idiot will buy android... iPhone gaming performance is just so much better theres no match. But if you are spending $800+ just to play games, then you have a problem... get PS4 PRO / Xbox X.
[deleted post]Read the comment he replied to properly. How much SOT can you get from XZP on 4K?
I have to say it's not. This device's unique selling point is the 120Hz display. Tuning software exists, the most noteworthy is te Game Tools/launcher introduced with the Galaxy S7. The display should've been AMOLED. Gaming isn't only about Hz, but also colors. SoC isn't special at all, the battery is bigger than competition though. And the design could've been more... ''gamer''-like.

I like your first point there. Its almost impossible to design a 100% unique device. I really don't understand why get so emotional over this thing that's labelled "copying". Its also non very sensible to design something 100% unique. For example, it would be quite a step backward for a car company to design a square wheel just so they can be unique - uniquely stupid, yes, but that's a different story. Similarly with mobile phones, there are certain design features that just WORK. It makes no sense to deviate from it.
Besides that, even from a ground up design, there will always be some shared traits among devices - bar shaped phone with a large screen is bound to have similarities to other bar shaped phones with large screens.
Sometimes I feel like too many people have access to keyboards...sigh...

Let's just get away from saying that everything is a copy of everything else.
Putting together the best features from all other phones should produce the perfect phone, shouldn't it??? Not always, because everyone has different tastes.
