The Razer Phone is the First Phone (From Razer) Made Specifically For Gamers.

Want to know what a gaming phone looks like?
Well, here you go:
Razer, a company that is best known for its gaming PCs, has delved into Smartphones and the result looks good (at least specs-wise). On that count, you have: 

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
  • Storage: 64GB, with microSD support up to 2TB
  • Memory: 8GB of RAM
  • Display: 5.7-Inch IGZO LCD, 1440×2560
  • Rear Cameras: Dual 12-megapixel cameras
  • Front Camera: 8-megapixel
  • Battery: 4,000 milliamp-hour
  • Size: 158.5 x 77.7 x 8 mm/6.24 x 3.06 x 0.31-inches
  • Operating System: Android Nougat 7.1.1
  • Audio: Two front-facing speakers powered by Dolby Atmos

There is also the fact that the Razer Phone has the world’s first 120Hz display on a smartphone — which translates into a smoother gaming experience.

The company has also included cinematic audio with Dolby Atmos support. As if that wasn’t enough, Razer added a 24-bit DAC, which doesn’t mean that there is a headphone jack, because there isn’t one on the Razer Phone. The power button on the Razer phone also doubles as a fingerprint sensor.

Then you have the bezels!
Although the company claims that it was done because it expects users to use the phone in landscape mode majority of the time.

Finally, the Razer phone is only available in one color (Black) and would sell for $699 (Apprx. N240,000).
Yes, the phone looks like something from 2016, but are the specs and price tag good enough for you?

  3. Woah, this is simply amazing

  4. Emerson says:

    The only amazing thing I see here is the 120Hz refresh rate, I thought it’d come with a custom GPU, using the Adreno’ in the SD835 makes it no different from the flagships we already have. And gaming on smartphones? Come on

  5. ỌBÁDÁRÀ says:

    … WELL, I’M NOT IN ANYWAY EXCITED ABOUT THE RAZER PHONE. ON ANDROID, GAMES THAT WILL PUSH THE REFRESH RATE AND 8GB RAM TO OPTIMUM USE ARE VERY RARE.
    ITS NOT REALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER FLAGSHIPS OUT THERE.
    THE 8GB RAM WILL BE GOOD FOR MULTI TASKING THOUGH…

    Gaming laptop now gaming phone

  7. Wareez says:

    The boxy industrial design is reminiscent of Nextbit Robin (oh, Razer bought Nextbit!). It wouldn’t hurt adding this device to one’s phone collections, would it?

  8. Wow, now a can successfully play Candy Crush without Lag.

  9. Suggestion: Hey Misstechy, we really need the EDIT COMMENT Feature. This change regime is causing so many typo errors

  10. I would take this if money is not a problem 😂

    This is phone is amazing but the price isn’t

  12. jwills says:

    hi, I think this phone is not as cool as the pervious device originally made, am talking about the nexbit robin, the first cloud phone, design wise it hasn’t changed much, but the specs are OK, its kinda steep for its features, well may be in time improvement will come

    Interesting but I doubt anybody would buy this except if they want to game exclusively on a mobile phone

    The phone is nice and also comes up with a 158.5 x 77.7 x 8 mm/6.24 x 3.06 x 0.31-inches size and the battery capacity is great but the only issue Here is the phone coming up with 8gb ram and the price which is not pocket friendly

  15. hassan says:
