Razer’s First Smartphone!

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.

Razer’s Super Powerful Computer!

Razer a company that produces computers and more cool hardware got an amazing super powerful laptop called the Razer Blade Pro. This is the RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 variant.

It first of all comes with a 17.3″ IGZO 3840×2160 4K/UHD Display, Intel Core i7 7th Gen 7820HK clocked at 2.9GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5X, THX certified laptop for better audio and visuals, VR Ready laptop, 32GB Memory, 1TB SSD and Windows 10 Home 64-Bit OS installed!

Some ports it comes with are: 3x USB 3.0, 1x Thunderbolt 3, LAN port, Power button, SD card reader, Kensington lock, audio/mic jack and 1x HDMI 2.0. It’s also a very thin laptop.

You don’t need GTX 1080 in a laptop to be VR ready. My Acer Predator laptop is running with the GTX 980 and can handle HTC Vive just fine. But this will certainly be more future proof system for virtual reality.

Razer Blade Pro will also be great for people who want to stream content online in 4K resolution or 360-degree streaming. You can also overclock the processor by enable high-performance mode to get clock speed up to 4.3GHz! Of course it as well comes with NVIDIA G-SYNC for more smooth gameplay. AMD has a similar feature. The visual clarity will be great because it supports 100% ADOBE RGB.

The keyboard is a nice low-profile mechanical keyboard that has light effects using razer chroma lighting with 16.8 million colour options inside the razer synapse software.

The material the laptop is having on outside is a aluminium unibody chassis just 0.88″ thin. It also uses a custom cooling design to spread out heat quickly to not create hot spots. Hopefully the laptop won’t be too loud. It has a side speaker as well.

It also comes with a massive 250W power adapter. This may not be your favourite travel companion but good for a complete PC setup in a small form factor. What do you think about the Razer Blade Pro?

This is clearly the most maxed out laptop I have ever written about. It truly got all you would need. But it also comes with a heavy price tag. A price tag that would give you two high end PC stations. So if it’s worth it is a good question. It will be if you will do a lot of professional work and need an on-the-go setup with you.
