Really average if not bad review. GSMA really lack information about usage, we have just lots of plain data.
For example this 120hz will be amazing with VR, and what we have about VR test? nothing.
Sharp user, 12 Nov 2017hmm, let me rephrase my previous comment then put some space, and add some numbers: 1. just... moreI agree. In some points (let's say true - in any) this review is negativity biased. Prove? Let's look what they say about camera aperture. And compare with other similar duall-camera aperture,s, iPhones for example. Telephoto lens aperture everywhere is similar. But only here they noticed that and complains. It's a shame. I agree about other things - screen isn't pervect, power consumption is high etc etc. But too much they noticed as fail but in other phones we see the same or close to and everything is ok.
I WILL PICK HUAWEI MATE 10, MATE 10 PRO anytime over this. but will definitely wait for future editions. have taken many first time launches and they are full of bugs/software issues/hardware issues etc,. mate 10 kicks razr phone all sides. still appreciate the efforts rzr made. have been a huge fan of theirs. keep it up

1. just like expected, I'm quite disappointed with gsma review, unfortunately gsma cannot explore (or finding more) the experience using 120Hz refresh rate more further than just buttery smooth when scrolling.
2. This phone has poor battery life, maybe Razer should take a look on the software and make it more efficient.
-120Hz refresh rate screen (super fluid animations and near lifelike motions) with QHD resolution
-dual front stereo speakers with fantastic sound quality
-extremely fast charging
-low brightness screen with possibly one of the most inaccurate colors
-weak battery life for so-called "gamer's phone"
-no 3.5mm glory hole thing
-no Ingress Protection
CM3, 12 Nov 2017iPhone X can't do 120Hz. OLEDs aren't capable of it.Sorry meant iPad Pro and iPad 10 my bad.
As expected. Corners were cut for that fancy display. I'll wait for V2 I believe. When they fix up their mess
Far from impressive, games need power and 62h seriously week, addition RAM just chinese phone marketing, performance just standard

this is their 1st smartphone release so why not give them time to fix their bugs? are you guys sh***h**ds to not know anythinga nd just complain like a baby. i wonder how worse you guys would have done if you were the ceo there. too many cry babies with no brains at all

The main issue of this phone aside from its battery life is its very low max brightness! (200 knits or so)
And to people who think Razer can fix everything with updates: stop dreaming. It has never happened for any phone.
Please double check your claims on gigabit LTE. Quallcomm employees on Reddit are saying this phone does NOT have category 16 LTE, but category 9. "Unfortunately it's only Cat 9 - 3xCA but no 256-QAM, 4x4 MIMO, or LAA." So, the max download should be around 450mbits.
OnePlus 5 is not a noteworthy alternative than this? Sure, 5T is just around the corner but... I mean seriously, this phone looks like a fail OP 5 in most important parts.
Sure, it's mainly targeting Razer FanBoy who wants to brag about their 'ULTRAMOTION' display, 120 hz, and don't forget those free pair of stickers *cough Apple.
In order to do that, they make such gross trade-off. Poor implementation of dual-camera (My ZenFone 3 Zoom can do better despite its worse ISP), and... their trademark 'ULTRAMOTION' takes such a huge toll on battery life (despite it's massive 4Ah capacity we're talking about here), sunlight legibility and even color accuracy (seriously razer, wide color gamut but bad color accuracy?)
So conclusion, this phone is not worth to buy (except if this phone turns to be Essential Phone v2, poor sales then its got huge discount) than the OP5 (or even OP 5T)
This seemed really good on paper, especially things like the battery and sound, but it seems that those aspects didn't come out as good as they sounded like they would. It's a shame -
this could be a serious flagship challenger if it delivered its standout features better.
Excellent review, very Objective, thanks!
This phone is great on paper, good but not so great in real life.
The lack of 3.5mm aux port, ingress protection, thick top-bottom bezels, and the below-average battery life really hurt this device. I say its only in the same league as the ZTE Axon 7, Samsung S7, LG G6, Essential Phone, and the OnePlus 5/5t. Not worth more than US$350-$500, or Â€350-Â€400, so it is a little overpriced now.
