Razer Phone Launched as Gaming-Focused Device

Adjust Comment Print

Even though the Razer Phone is touted as a gamer's smartphone, we imagine other devices in this list are just as capable when it comes to gaming - bar the 120Hz display, of course. On top of that there's a built-in adaptive UltraMotion refresh technology - co-developed with Qualcomm - which synchronises the display with the GPU for maximum smoothness. The 5.72-inch LCD screen is designed for no lag or stuttering while producing clear and colorful images. A THX-certified USB-C audio adapter with a 24-bit digital audio convertor (DAC) guarantees audiophile-quality sound with one's favorite headphones.

Powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 8GB RAM makes sure your phone never stops in the middle of the game. Initially, the Razer Phone will run on Android Nougat but it will receive the upgrade to Android Oreo in spring of next year. In that position, the Razer Phone's width make it ergonomically efficient, giving me a good, stable grip while rotating the phone around in racing game Asphalt 8 or tapping about in fighting game Tekken. The Razer Phone houses a large 4,000 mAh battery, which is one of the largest capacities found in modern smartphones.

But if you don't want to eat through that big phone battery by playing games at insane speeds, Razer has brought over another big feature from PC gaming: Choice.

Mobile games are being optimised by partners for the Razer Phone display, with frame rates of up to 120fps. Interested users can head to Three stores in the United Kingdom and European Union as well as Microsoft Stores in the U.S. and the company's own stores in San Francisco on November 17 to get their devices.

The device is the first endeavor to create a pure gaming smartphone. The phone has another gaming-focused feature, called Game Booster, allowing players to change the settings for better gaming performance.

Alongside of the new Razer Phone, Razer is also offering its own Hammerhead BT earbuds, the Razer Phone Rugged Case for added phone protection, and the silicon-based Razer Phone Word Case to protect its new phone from wear and tear.

Facebook had previously disclosed that 126 million accounts were served that content on Facebook. That's on top of 3,000 content reviewers Facebook said it would hire to police violent videos.


To begin with, the Razer Phone seems the least concerned about looks and aesthetics.

This can make it hard for smaller companies to enter the industry, but it hasn't stopped the gaming brand Razer from taking on the smartphone kingpins.

Razer was founded by Min-Liang Tan and Robert Krakoff and is headquartered in San Francisco, California. "This partnership sets the standard for the next generation of mobile screen play".

Bezel less design is something gamers would hate because they make it hard to hold the phone during long sessions.

The only thing the Razer Phone is missing, is an array of RGB LED's surrounding the phone. At 8mm thick it's a little heftier than the 7.7mm iPhone X or 7.5mm iPhone 8 Plus, and with the all black aluminium body, sharp edges, and big honking logo on the back.
