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
AnonD-711869, 03 Nov 2017It looks pretty cool, but this whole no headphone jack thing apple started is annoying. Curved screens from Samsung are also annoying.
Not only looks abd but is slippery as hell.
No screen protector is good for that.
And when you put one you cant use cover because it will push your screen protector.
Also super expensive.
But phone like this is GLAMOROUS.
Best phone of the year for sure. Also most beautifull.
Awesome stats specs and everything else.
I am gonna buy definitely.
Count me in.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2017too expensive
no ip class
no 3,5mmCost much less than other brands mate. What do you want.
Huge battery and top notch end specs beyond belief.
Buy Iphone X for 1300 plus 150 for that charger when you are not happy.
2700 mAh bettery will die in one hour maybe less on gaming
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2017true, impressive so far. Let's wait for the final, official specsExcellent phone would buy it. I am big razer fan. Unless it cost over 1000.
Much better than that overpriced Note 8 with curved screen or that slowly charging iphone X with 150 eur charger which is not included in box. Apple is kind of joke company.
This is the true beatst on the phone market.
AnonD-711869, 03 Nov 2017It looks pretty cool, but this whole no headphone jack thing apple started is annoying. Apple didn't start it, Sony Ericsson did. Look at the Sony Ericsson W-series of phones, all of them apart from the Spiro and W995 (maybe more but can't be asked checking) doesn't have a 3.5 mm headphone jack and you need to use proprietary headphones.
I hope this phone will be released also in the Philippines. Great job razer!
Gaming S.phone but! Why not Nvidia clone!? No 3.5mm jack headphones (when it has about 8mm thickness) no aptX HD... Biggest disappointments
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.
now....nobody gave comment on design of phone&*() like xperia square shape.....everybody happy with sony 's copied design by razer...if this is xperia phone....every single samsung and apple (paid) fan comment on square shape....blah blah..

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.
AnonD-588035, 03 Nov 2017No aptX or aptXHD? :(all snapdragon 620+, 650+ and 820+ processors support it
