The Razer phone is the latest entrant into the smartphone market, but this phone is a little different than the rest. This phone isn’t designed to appeal to everyone, in fact, it has a very niche audience in mind which you would realise when you look at the features it packs in. And boy does it pack some features. This phone is an absolute monster when it comes to performance, but we will dive into that in a more detailed review. We have to ask though before discussing the phone, which does phone users want a high-end phone that is dedicated to gaming? The sale figures of the phone should tell us that, but this is a bold move by a company that is famous for its gaming laptops and other peripherals.
The Razer comes with a 5.70-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1440p x 2560p. It comes with the first 120Hz Ultramotion display. Although a bit disappointing to use in direct sunlight, Once you have used Ultramotion, you would not want to go back to using conventional displays that are found in other flagship models. At its heart, it has a Snapdragon 835, which is the same processor that powers most of the flagship models of 2017. It also comes with 8GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded to 2GB through a microSD card. The camera on the Razer is a 12-megapixel dual camera while the front camera is an 8 megapixel for selfies. The camera isn’t too complicated because Razer decided not to include any features such as pro because this is a phone dedicated to gaming. Regarding the operating system, it comes loaded with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Powering the phone is a 4000mAh non-removable battery. The Razer is a single sim (GSM) phone; it requires a nano SIM and connectivity options include WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, USB, 3G and $G. The onboard sensors include Compass, Magnetometer, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Ambient light sensor and Barometer. It also comes with Corning Gorilla glass 3 three which makes the screen very very durable.
