Razer Phone 2 review: Strictly for gamers

 

The Razer Phone 2 is without doubt a great phone for gamers. It has a gorgeous, buttery smooth display, punchy and robust sound, and plenty of power and battery life to keep you in the game for longer. Slight tweaks like the addition of...

Crisp colorful display with 120Hz refresh rate ; Dolby Atmos speakers ; Decent battery life with Quick Charge capabilities ; Buttery smooth performance

Camera quality is still not great ; Form factor isn’t very comfortable ; The phone can get pretty hot

Razer's new phone has video game power, flagship features and snake logos that light up

 

It improves on the original Razer Phone in almost every way, but its battery life and photo quality are disappointing, even after a software update.

The Razer Phone 2 adds IP67 water resistance, a brighter 120Hz screen and wireless charging. That's on top of its great gaming performance and amazing built-in speakers. It's also compatible with 2TB microSD cards for extra storage and runs a...

Battery life is worse than the original Razer Phone, despite costing $100 more.

Short battery life and just OK photos undermine what is otherwise an amazing phone.

Razer Phone 2

 

The Razer Phone 2 is a great Android phone for gaming, but it's pretty average at everything else.

Sharp, responsive 120Hz display. Powerful specs and gaming performance. Thunderous front speakers. Programmable logo on the back.

Thick, unwieldy form factor. Subpar camera performance and battery life. No headphone jack.

The Razer Phone 2 is another impressive gaming machine, but it neglects the basics. Yes, the 120Hz screen and advanced cooling system are sure to please mobile gamers looking for top-notch performance. But it doesn't deliver an extraordinary...

Razer Phone 2 review: it glows, but it doesn’t shine

 

Is a gaming phone better than a "regular" phone?

Smoothest display on any current Android phone ; Best speakers on any current Android phone ; A light-up Chroma logo

Cameras are (still) a miss ; Brick design is unwieldy ; Gets warm playing videos / games

Correction: Only the iPad Pro, from among Apple’s products, has a high refresh rate like the Razer Phone 2, not the iPhone X / XS as previously suggested.

Razer Phone 2 review: Still the best gaming phone

 

The Razer Phone 2 is a gaming powerhouse that loses some of its charm in the upgrades.

Top of the line specs and build quality ; Killer 120Hz screen and dual front facing speakers ; Near stock version Android with useful features

Glass back ; No headphone jack

Despite the lack of headphone jack and a switch to the glass back I can still say that the Razer Phone 2 is the best ‘gaming phone’ out there. It couples hardcore specs with gamer-focused features and a super-clean version of Android—a combination that...

Razer Phone 2 Review: The Slight Difference

 

The Razer Phone 2 once again offers a unique smartphone package to a still-stagnant smartphone market. We're no longer in a place where there's a massive number of people looking to buy their first phone (in the USA, anyway), we're at the point at...

120Hz display still unmatched (like RP1) ; Front-facing speakers sound great ; Top-notch performance on every game we tested ; Industrial Design remains strong

Display could be brighter ; Glass backside means lowered durability ; No headphone jack ; Speaker grilles catch dust real easy

Razer Phone 2 Smartphone Review

 

Game On. Razer is getting ready for round two. Following the first real gaming smartphone named simply, Phone, they have introduced the - surprise - Phone 2. Don't be fooled by its lackluster name though: the Phone 2 is everything but boring. Let's...

120 Hz display ; powerful SoC with decent cooler ; 8 GB of RAM ; expandable storage ; unique RGB logo ; dual SIM ; high-quality DAC included ; camera with OIS ; stereo speakers ; wireless charging ; QuickCharge

heavy ; small internal storage ; wide bezels above and below the display ; poor battery life

If you are looking for something special, the Razer Phone 2 will be perfect for you, and not just because of the logo. The Asus ROG Phone offers something similar albeit with a 90 Hz display. Thus, the 120 Hz display is unique to Razer’s phone - an...

Razer phone 2 review: “The best phone for gaming… with some caveats”

 

Designed specifically for gaming, the Razer phone 2 is big, bright, and a little impractical to actually use

Lovely big screen ; Excellent sound ; Great battery life

Very large handset ; Screen is 16:9 and not edgeless

A large, well made gaming phone with a bright screen and some powerful innards. It's perfect for play, but not practical for everyday use.

Razer Phone 2 review: Going against the grain

 

Priced at $799, the Razer Phone 2 is one of the few high-end flagships you can buy this year at the sub-$1,000 price point. It improves on the original Razer Phone by adding IP certification, wireless charging, and is still fantastic for gaming. It's...

Super build quality ; Fast 120hz display ; Great for gaming ; RGB logo is a nice touch ; Loud dual speakers ; Good battery life ; IP67 ; Wireless charging

No headphone jack ; Poor camera performance ; Recessed power button is not good

Razer Phone 2 Review: A Good Gaming Phone Looking to Break Out

 

I like the idea of Razer Phone 2 becoming a true flagship phone that happens to excel at gaming, but I'm still on the fence about the concept of gaming phones — at least in the United States. Mobile gaming has a major following in Asia, thanks to games...

120-Hz UltraMotion display delivers smooth graphics ; Excellent audio ; Strong performance ; Elegant, durable design

No headphone jack ; Dim display ; Camera needs work

The Razer Phone 2 offers good performance, excellent audio and a 120-Hz display, but the phone's camera still needs work.
