Razer has a new smartphone for gamers! It’s called the Razer phone. It has a few addons you can get along with the phone: Razer Hammerhead BT earphones, Razer phone rugged case or Razer phone word case. Let’s take a closer look at the specs on this device.
First it comes with a display that is in 120 Hz it’s called the UltraMotion screen. I have never heard about a smartphone with 120 Hz display so it seems like a big key selling point. In terms of Audio you get Dolby ATMOS and THX certified audio, great if you have a large collection of Spotify playlists.
Next up we have the Snapdragon 835 chipset inside which is the high-end Android flagship chipset phones use 2017. We get 8GB of RAM inside which means you will have no problems have multiple high-end games running at the same time. Or just running regular apps at the same time like browser, music app and game app.
You get a dual camera at 12MP, dual cameras was also the big trend for 2017 phones. Inside you have a 4000mAh battery not the highest mAh I seen in phones I seen phones with 7000mAh but it’s also not the smallest, Samsung usually has batteries around 3000mAh. This is great because it’s in between to create a nice slimmer phone design.
Storage inside is 64GB UFS and you can expand memory even more with a external microSD card up to 2TB! The display size is 5.7” and it’s an IGZO LCD with 1440×2560 screen resolution. Gorilla Glass 3 glass protection.
The dual 12MP rear camera the first has f/1.75 wide angle the second has f/2.6, you get dual PDAF and dual tone + dual LED flash. The front facing camera is 8MP with f/2.0.
The phone reminds me about a Sony Xperia design. It has large bezels both on bottom and top. I would prefer a more bezel-less design. The Razer logo can light up green at the back side.
It’s a pretty heavy phone 197 grams in weight with 8mm in thickness. The phone is suppose to be a gaming phone but I don’t really see the magical selling point here. Because most Android games doesn’t have amazing graphics there is not that many console or PC quality games to get on Android. If this phone had exclusive games access then it definitely would be a cool experience.
