I hope the Razer company keeps making these, so by the time Qualcomm has 5 nm and 3 nm SoC options, it'll be super fast, have extremely loud speakers, super bright screen, and a battery that will last 3 to 4 days per full charge "_" . Peace and chicken grease all :-] .
s-pen pusher, 12 Oct 2018oled tech is not capable of 120Hz refresh rate yet. once you have experienced and got used to ... moreNot only that, but it allows higher brightness and also LCD will not suffer from burn-in.
LCD does have advantages, and should not die yet.
I just need a bigger screen....5.7 is almost somthing to compare to with these 6.1-6.5inch screens
Razer Phone 1 Owner, 14 Oct 2018The design maybe not be everyone but as a Happy owner of the first model, I welcome new featur... moreyes, that was what i have been preaching about the razer phone 1. i could even say that once you get used to the 120Hz refresh rate, anything lower than that appears to be such a jarring experience. such is the case when i am switching between my razer phone and note 8- even just scrolling web pages on the razer phone 1 is smoother than everything else.
The design maybe not be everyone but as a Happy owner of the first model, I welcome new features of this. For those saying the 120hz is a Gimmick, you should actually see one in person and be blown away by how smooth it is. The speaker grills maybe ugly but they are loud and give a good media experience, trying watching a Dolby Atmos video and listen to 360 sound! Fans of the iPhone 4/5/Se will love the design of the phone, I have speaker grills any day than a Fugly Notch!
For a mobile gamer to have everything it really occupies, it is necessary to have at least these 4 things to avoid connectivity problems and latency failures.
1.- Input 3.5mm for hearing aids so that the audio works correctly, that of sharing the type C input to charge and to connect some hearing aids is very bad idea.
2.- Connectivity to television via Mhl as they had several high-end phones from past generations.
3.- A gamepad with powerbank of minimum 6000mha and that can be connected via the type C connector so that there is no delay between the controller and the game.
4.-It is necessary to have a slot for memory card, I currently have a 128gb memory card with movies, emulator roms (MAME, SuperRetro 16 and Happychick) besides having a lot of my music, it is better to have all that in an external card so as not to saturate the cell phone internally and make it slower.
I believe that the Rogphone complies with everything it deals with except for the memory card slot.
The 120Hz refresh rate is still slightly a gimmick. There are not that many apps and games to fully support it yet. If I remember correctly Sony has had it for a few years, but locked the feature, because it's not needed yet. So yeah some games may benefit from it, but only few.
Can you change battery? ohhh no? Phone will be useless in a matter of a year and a half.
Patric, 11 Oct 2018Too many flaws for a game phone. Lack of gamecontrollers as accesories and lack of dual port, ... moreIf you don't like the device then you can check other brands. Dude, the phone is not made for your preference.
Kingslayer, 12 Oct 2018Too much bezel. Yeah bezel is too big and doesn't look good but there's a reason for it.
Kingslayer, 12 Oct 2018Too much bezel. For good reason
@Werk, 11 Oct 2018Qi chargers are very fart these days, especially Apple's!Fast charging itÂ’s the worst thing that kill phone battrey within couple of month do some research to understand how fast charging are really bad.
people are hating the big top and bottom bezels but it is there for some purposes- not only does it allow you to rest your thumb there when gaming (so you don't rest it on the screen itself), but those also houses the loudest and best sounding front-firing speakers ever in smartphones. i own a razer phone and nothing comes close to the sound reproduction of the independently amplified speakers on it, and i heard per MKBHD they kept it on the razer phone 2. it produces clean and clear sound with punchy bass; those are dolby atmos certified anyway. i may be biased here as i have said my current phone is the original razer phone, but i have compared it to several flagships with front-facing speakers and i think nothing really comes close to how good it sounds. i worked as a professional club DJ and as an assistant to a sound engineer for several years, i also grew up in a family of audiophiles (my father had a collection of high-end speakers and tube amps), so i know a thing or two when it comes to sound reproduction. i could atest to the fact that the razer phone has the best speakers ever in smartphones.
there are also those who hate black thing lining the edges of the display. the aluminum frame on the original razer phone does not go all the way to the top to constitue the bezel on the sides of the phone as in other smartphones with flat or 2.5D glass, so you can consider those black lining as the bezel itself; and if you compare it with other flagships with flat or 2.5D glass fronts those are as thin as others.
again, i may be biased in defending this brand because i am using the original razer phone as my daily driver for almost 2 months now. i was using flagships from samsung before this and i know some people who use flagship phones of other brands as well, so i have compared it with sizeable enough number of smartphones and i still am standing by its strengths. i would agree with the criticism on the camera and the battery, but the screen and speakers has no equal until this razer phone 2 per initial hands-on reviews.
sweaf, 11 Oct 2018I instantly knew that this phone has an LCD panel just by looking at that thumbnail. LCD is dead.oled tech is not capable of 120Hz refresh rate yet. once you have experienced and got used to a 120Hz screen, everything else lower than that seems choppy.
