Razer Phone review

 

The Razer Phone is a brilliant gaming device, but not a well-rounded smartphone.

Amazing phone for gaming ; Loud front stereo speakers ; Great build quality ; 120Hz screen is more than a gimmick ; Included DAC makes wired headphones sound great

Camera is only average ; Not water resistant ; Expensive

The Razer Phone is a brilliant mobile gaming device, just not a brilliant smartphone all-rounder. It’s not good news in a year when so many amazing smartphones are yours to buy for around the same price.

Razer Phone review: A tough sell, even if it's great for gamers

 

With its gorgeous display and great audio, the Razer Phone is a phone that puts gaming at the forefront and does it well. Its long battery life also makes it useful for other applications, like browsing the web and watching videos. Be warned, however,...

Gorgeous display ; Great sound quality ; Long battery life ; Buttery smooth performance

A little clunky for small hands ; Camera quality isn't very good ; Display isn't great under sunny conditions

The Razer Phone has ruined other phones for me

 

Sadly, it's not good enough to replace them.

The Razer Phone is the smoothest Android experience yet. It's built like a tank, and its twin Dolby-powered speakers blow away the competition.

Big, speaker-filled bezels make for a bulky phone with no water resistance or headphone jack. No-frills camera takes iffy photos in low light, among other camera quirks.

Razer Phone sets a new bar for mobile performance (and game responsiveness) with its 120Hz screen and loud speakers, but it's not a top-tier phone in any other way.

Razer Phone

 

Razer's first phone delivers an all-out mobile gaming experience, but falls short on some other smartphone basics.

First Android phone with 120Hz screen. Big battery. Front-facing speakers.

Camera has exposure problems. Muddy speakerphone. Slow LTE modem. Not compatible with Sprint or Verizon.

Here's the thing: Any high-end phone can play the most popular Android games, even the fancy ones. Any Snapdragon 835 phone can play Hearthstone, or Minecraft PE, or Riptide GP or any of the Final Fantasy Games, especially if you knock the screen...

Razer Phone Review : Real Mobile Courage

 

The first Razer Phone clearly wasn't designed to take on the competition with bright, flashy colors. Razer didn't make their first phone with curved edges, and it didn't include a front-facing 3D face-sensor setup for animated emoji messages. Instead,...

Speakers get extremely loud ; Flat, sharp, bright, rectangular display ; 120Hz smooth refresh rate ; Granular app/game optimization controls ; USB-C THX DAC Audio Adapter included

Speakers get a tiny bit snappy on high end ; Camera app lacking features ; Camera output just decent, not quite spectacular ; Front-facing speaker grills difficult to keep clean ; No headphone jack

Razer Phone Review

 

Will the Razer Phone be a hit with mobile gamers? And even if your gaming pursuits don't extend far beyond the occasional crossword, is the Razer Phone well-balanced enough to appeal to your other smartphone needs? Let's take a look.

Beautiful screen animation ; Decent speakers ; Some smart design choices ; Good performance

Poor camera interface ; Lack of OIS is evident ; Giant battery feels like it's going to waste ; Absent waterproofing ; No headphone jack (nor included USB headphones) ; Does not work on Verizon or Sprint

Razer Phone review

 

The Razer Phone is a great first attempt and might start new trends in the smartphone space, but its camera significantly holds the phone back.

Unique, handsome design ; Display and Ultramotion are gorgeous ; Top-notch performance ; 24-bit DAC built into USB Type-C adapter ; Loudspeaker is LOUD ; Nova Launcher was a great software choice

Terrible photography experience ; Display could be brighter ; Too big for one-handed use ; No headphone jack ; Battery life only average

Razer Phone Review: A Gaming Monster We Almost Love

 

After several days with the Razer Phone, I'm still not totally convinced that I need a bona fide gaming phone. But Razer makes a pretty strong case with its Ultramotion display, great frame rates and stunning audio.. However, this $699 handset has some...

First 120-Hz Ultramotion display ; Best-in-class audio ; Great gaming performance ; Stays cool under pressure

No headphone jack ; Screen could be brighter ; Cameras a step behind the competition ; Below-average battery life

The Razer Phone offers powerful performance, crazy-good audio and an innovative display, but the cameras and battery life disappoint.

Razer Phone review: by gamers, for gamers

 

The gaming specialists break new ground with the introduction of an Android smartphone specially designed for gamers. Simply named the Razer Phone , the new device is meant to appeal to users who want to enjoy games, videos and music of the highest...

Powerful hardware ; Very fluid operation ; Powerful stereo speakers ; Good battery life

Camera not (yet) convincing ; No IP certification ; Loudspeaker cover attracts dirt

The gaming specialist has recognized that the brand's demanding fanbase don't just need headsets, keyboards, mice and other peripherals, but that they are also playing more and more mobile games. Hence the need for a smartphone with the snake logo.
