The Razer Phone is tied up in the gaming associations of its parent company, but theres another way to look at it a competitively priced Android flagship. In the U.S., you can also grab it from Amazon.com or select Microsoft Store locations. What makes this smartphone different from the rest?
This latest smartphone is launching into a crowded market but its makers seem confident it has plenty to offer over all of its popular rivals. Can it really compete with the likes of Apple, Google, and Samsung, all of whom have poured hundreds of research hours into building the ideal smartphone camera?
Another highlight of the Razer Phone is its screen. Moss said it had to go with LCD over OLED because there would have been significant "ghosting" with an OLED display, which means if you played a game of Pac-Man you would have seen a yellow trail linger after the titular character. When a display operates at 120Hz, there's a real possibility of ghost images appearing on the display when an OLED display lights up.
As this smartphone is 120Hz-capable, mobile games without framerate limits are about to get a whole lot more awesome. However, Razer hasn't given estimates on battery life duration for any type of conditions, although the Game Booster app will let users tinker power and performance of the phone. A fingerprint on the power button, which is located on the right hand side of the phone.
As this device has a lovely 24-bit DAC, it's able to provide far more audio resolution than phones that do without. 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. Razor Phone will also be available at Three outlets in UK, Ireland, Denmark, and Sweden, and selected Microsoft Stores in the US. For richer sound during gaming, the Razer Phone has dual stereo front-facing speakers and dual amplifiers. There lie two front-facing speakers, just in case you're not all about that headphone business. In the past, Nokia tried doing this with the N-gage, Sony attempted this with the Xperia Play, and even Indian brand Mitashi launched the Mitashi Play Thunderbolt smartphone almost three years ago.
