First 3.7/5 rated flagship here. Nothing to see here. Just get your S8/V30/Nokia 8 or anything but a phone for gamers. Gamers are audiophiles too so they immediately opt for Wired Headsets (more likely, Audio Technica, Sennheiser, Steelseries? and Plantronics).

ZiGiTy-Zo0giTy, 13 Nov 2017They should have used the same chip as the switch, would have powered through anything at 120h... morenintendo switch is using more-hungry-power-chip, using nvidia x1 on a phone will make battery drains more fast, just look google pixel c tablet, it has poor battery life
They should have used the same chip as the switch, would have powered through anything at 120hz, although razer would have to kick it up a notch on optimizations for battery life.

Hmmmm no Oneplus 5? Strange seeing as I can run the windwaker on Dolphin at it's native 30fps which is what the gamecube actually ran at with this game, MarioKart at a solid 60fps and the battery life is actually superb with both games allowing for hours of play?
Terrible alternatives on offer, maybe because the 5T is about to drop but again that should offer the same speeds and compatibility.
120hz is a new thing for phones but they've gone to far too soon.
Is it just me, or did GSM Arena miss an opportunity to include testing Android games at both industry standard refresh rates and select 120 hz rates? Why aren't a few examples of games that can run at the latter at least mentioned in this review?
Dave Granger, 13 Nov 2017Of course a software update can make the screen brighter, it will also add a headphone socket.and a Microwave oven... and a toaster... and a ref
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2017lol u think software fix will make the screen much brighter then 223 nits? wake up KID!Of course a software update can make the screen brighter, it will also add a headphone socket.
It's the first time in my life I look at a phone and it makes me think about a Xperia, when I look at the XZ in black, Sony's phone looks so much better, despite all the industrial and gaming design BS. And I've never been a fan of the design.
I could live with all the cons this article said about this Razer phone except for the screen issues and the brand. Just because it has the Razer brand the actual price of this phone for the final customer depending where you live I'd rather get the Sony XZ, Nokia 8, or insert all the 2017 flagships models here, Apple included. Pay premium for green/RGB leds and subpar quality, this phone seems to follow their business model, they only forgot the leds.
galaxyS7, 12 Nov 2017Why so much hate?. Just wait for the proper updates and all can change. The hardware is there ... morelol u think software fix will make the screen much brighter then 223 nits? wake up KID!
I know it won't be good until where. Beside that awesome 120hz display, nothing is special in this phone already.
Oh ya, a very well recognize GREEN everywhere.
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2017looks like nexbit robin in blackmore like the xperia z5 in blaaaack.
I was expecting for an excellent battery life but I end up being frustrated after this review.
kupfernigk, 12 Nov 2017Looks like a Sony but without jack or waterproofing and with worse battery life. looks like nexbit robin in black
Considering it's a first effort it's not too bad.
Still, I was expecting better technology in the screen, far too many compromises for the 120hz highlight.
