As many have probably heard already Razer has decided to launch it’s first phone and it is especially made for gamers. Even though Razer brands it as a “gaming phone” they claim it to be a phone made for gamers rather than gaming itself. As the name itself suggest the Razer phone is built to last. But, how did Razer come to the idea of building a phone?
Well the answer to that is quite easy. Everything started when Razer decides to buy a smartphone company called Nextbit. And as it’s predecessor, Razer Phone takes many features of the Nextbit phone. Especially it’s plain design and volume keys. Many blog writers have already criticized Razer that their design is too bland. Considering Razer’s style that is not very surprising. Without being biased, I can say it’s both good and bad. Most people who use smartphones will find the phone very boring. Though I do believe that Razer fans will be more than delighted with the bland design. Most noteworthy to note that this is Razer’s first attempt at a mobile phone. Therefore we can expect a lot more from Razer in the coming years.
Smoother, brighter, faster
As quoted by Razer itself, the developers made it an effort to bring us an amazing 120 Hz. With this users can enjoy a smooth gaming experience without any lag. The 120 HZ by themselves do not mean much. Without the Ultramotion Technology the refresh rate of the screen would not have been properly implemented in games. Regardless of other neat phone features I believe that the Ultramotion technology is the real jackpot of Razer phone.
Coming in a perfect mix with the video is Razer’s true to life cinematic audio. The phones screen of 16:9 is boxed out by dual front stereo speakers. The speakers feature Dolby ATMOS which can bring you an amazing cinematic experience. One of many downsides pointed out by other blogs was no 3.5 mm jack input for headphones. And as they do consider it to be a bother. I believe that the Razer Hammerhead in mix with THX hardware can bring you an even better quality of sound than some cheap headphones from the gas station.
As we all know already, performance of Razer phone is equal to the current android beasts out there on the market. Even though some people might say that it is not worth buying this phone as there are many other who have similar or better characteristics. I would say that they are wrong, this phone is definitely worth buying. If you ever bought Razer you would know that everything they do is with effort and quality. So without even trying out this phone. I can say that I would buy it just from my past experience with Razer. We can expect the phone to be made quality unlike some.

The Razer phone comes equipped with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with 8GB RAM. With 12MP dual cameras which can give your photos a neat professional look while you enjoy any kind of occasion. And finally a battery of 4000 mhZ that allows you to enjoy your gaming on the go experience all day long, you will not be disappointed.
