Razer just announced their first ever smartphone under the tagline phone “for gamers, by gamers.” Everyone was excited when earlier Razor announced they are going to build a smartphone dedicated to the gamers. But the final product feels like just an ordinary Android flagship.
Processor: Snapdragon 835
RAM: 8 GB
OS: Android Nougat 7.1.1
Storage: 64 GB, Expandable
Display: 5.7-inch 1440p
Camera: Dual 12-megapixel camera
Audio: Dolby Atmos supported front facing speakers, No headphone jack
The Razer Phone packs some serious power but it doesn’t offer anything special. Most of the current generation Android flagship phones come with exact same hardware. There is nothing new in the software department as well, the Razer Phone is powered by last gen Android Nougat 7.1.1 operating system.
Bottom line is Razer hasn’t done anything special to call it a phone for gamers and the absence of a headphone jack is another big question mark on their statement. With giant top and bottom bezels and chunky industrial look the phone also scores really low in the design department. To be honest, nothing about this phone is really exciting.
Hopefully, Razer will learn from their mistakes and come with the better version of it in the coming future. You can get the Razer Phone from company’s official website or the Amazon store for $700 in the US and £700 in the UK. Stay tuned for the updates.
