Razer Phone review

Razer Phone is a smartphone for players. Only for them? Or maybe not?


While manufacturers compete in demonstration of next smartphones with screens 18: 9, Razer decided to show its approach to smartphones. It’s a phone with a 16: 9 screen, wide frames around it, but with parameters that must satisfy the demands of any player. Razer Phone was created with the thought of this particular group of people, about the players.

Razer Phone looks like … Xperia.

Razer Phone has a rather original design. The mind immediately comes Xperia from Sony. But Razer Phone looks more strictly, I do not know how they did it, but their smartphone for some reason attractive.

Large frames above and below the screen in the Razer Phone were made for stereo speakers Dolby Atmos – and this is the first good news. What else will please this smartphone?

Ultramotion 120 HZ screen.

If you want to point out the features of Razer Phone, thanks to which it will appeal to players, this is certainly a screen. The display with a diagonal of 5.7 inches and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels is nothing special, there are a lot of such in the market. But the update at 120 Hz is not common. It sounds great, but are there many people who need a gaming smartphone? I do not know…

It is worth mentioning the technology that this screen was made of. In Razer Phone there is a display Ultramotion, whose task is to synchronize the GPU with the picture; works on the same principle as NVIDIA’s G-Sync.

Characteristics that you should not be ashamed of.

Razer Phone – this is another smartphone that is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor in conjunction with 8 GB of RAM. Personally, I’m very interested in how his double camera shoots, because on paper it looks pretty good. 12 Mp f / 1.75 with an additional 13 Mp f / 2.6 lens. Front is a camera at 8 megapixel f / 2.0. The photos shown at the presentation were, as you might have guessed, phenomenal, but as we shoot it in reality, we do not know yet.

It is equipped with standard communication modules: NFC, wi-fi, LTE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2. The filling of the smartphone is in the case with dimensions of 158.5 x 77.7 x 8 mm, and its weight is 197 g.

Attention also deserves a 4000 mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+ quick charge support.

But it also has two things that I do not understand. The first is that Razer promises to launch it on sale in November 2017, but on the market it will appear with Android 7.1.1 Nougat when Oreo is already available for a long time. Of course, there will be an update to Android Oreo, but why not immediately release it with the new system? And the second thing that I do not quite understand is internal memory – if it’s a smartphone for players, then why is it only 64 GB of memory, not 128 GB? Yes, there is a microSD card slot, thanks to which you can expand the memory, but 64 is still not enough.

There is a third thing that upsets me. There is no standard headphone jack.

Razer Phone specifications

Is it a smartphone?

I’m not a player, but Razer Phone is not much different from a usual smartphone, but you can not help but notice that it offers really good parameters. Will it become popular? I do not know, it’s a mystery, the solution to which will appear after the launch of the smartphone on sale.

How much does a Razer smartphone cost?

The price of Razer Phone is 699 dollars, and the smartphone will go on sale on November 17. Will he appear in our country until such information is available, but I think he will be – albeit in limited numbers.
