Reviews for the Razer Phone 2

89.6% Razer Phone 2 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
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 take a look at what the brand-new gaming smartphone can do and what its weaknesses are.
93% Razer Phone 2 review: An excellent Android phone for gaming and media consumption
Source: Techaeris English
Assuming you can get past the clunky design, our Razer Phone 2 review found that this device offers great value for the specifications. It performs well for apps and gaming, features a nice buttery smooth display with high refresh rate, and has some of the best sounding speakers I’ve heard in a smartphone. Are there better all around Android smartphones out there? Most definitely. But with services like Google Stadia and Project xCloud on the horizon, when coupled with a portable game controller, the Razer Phone 2 could make a great game streaming device.

Razer Phone 2 Review
Source: Phandroid English
There aren’t any perfect phones on the market. I don’t think anyone will argue that point with you but if you’re looking for something that truly focuses on gaming while doing the other day-to-day tasks well, then the list should with the Razer Phone 2. This isn’t just a “gaming phone” because gaming phones don’t really exist, much like gaming PCs are just more powerful PCs. This has much of the same hardware as any other flagship on the market right now, save for the newer 2019 flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S10+.

Razer Phone 2 Review: Not Quite The Follow Up We Expected
Source: Lowyat.net English
The Razer Phone 2, then, is not just a gaming phone, but I would argue that it’s just a very good phone in general. It comes packed with top tier components, and is pretty feature-complete as a whole. The fact that it’s a gaming phone made by a gaming peripherals company is a fact that loses the spotlight pretty quickly.

80% Razer Phone 2 review re-do: Still great, but Android Pie doesn't fix what's broken

The Razer Phone 2 offers a phone design and features that you can't find on other smartphones — big front-facing speakers, a display with 120hz refresh rate, and software optimization for battery and gaming performance. Now that it's been updated to Android 9 and available on discount, it offers more for a price that undercuts other flagships.

The Razer Phone 2 uber gaming phone is now in Malaysia at an amazing price
Source: Hitech Century English
Razer is perhaps one of the best loved brands among gamers and one of the most distinctive with its neon green snake triskelion logo becoming a defining hallmark for quality gaming hardware. They’ve expanded from making just mice, keyboards and headphones to gaming notebooks like the eponymous Razer Blade and even phones including one of the first purpose-built gaming phones in the form of the first Razer Phone though the Blade and Razer Phone weren’t officially available in Malaysia when they first made their debut a while back. Fortunately, Razer is bringing in their latest incarnation of the gaming phone writ large, the Razer Phone 2 to Malaysia today.

Razer Phone 2 review: gaming power makes for an awkward selling point
Source: Sydney Morning Herald English
But with a big, black design and a glowing RGB logo on the back, not to mention the massive front speakers, the Razer Phone 2 definitely has a vibe you won't get on any other flagship. If it appeals to you, you'll likely also love the easy software customisation and the general style the phone brings to Android, and you'll get the most out of your mobile games too.

80% Razer Phone 2 Review: The Slight Difference
Source: Slashgear English
Much like its predecessor, the Razer Phone 2 offers up a unique proposition. You, the user, want a smartphone with a display with a refresh rate that out-performs every other phone in the world. You also like to play games and blast audio directly at your face, not bounced off your palm or a nearby wall. The Razer Phone goes so far as to assume you want a notification light of many colors shining out from its backside.

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 isn’t matched by competitors like Asus’s ROG Phone. If you must have the ultimate gaming experience in your pocket, the Razer Phone 2 is the best option.

Source: Ausdroid English
The gaming experience is good however; you’re very much at the mercy of the developers and what they bring to the platform. I also can’t really help but think it’s a solution for a problem that doesn’t really exist… if you assess it as a stand alone phone it’s actually very good, I’m just not sure that it’s $1300 + good.

70% Razer Phone 2: Gaming glory brings its share of compromise

A niche proposition has some excellent features – including fast refresh rate screen and illuminating rear logo – but a design that can't hold its own against the current crop of flagships. As a stand-out device with points of difference it's sometimes brilliant though.

Clearly the Razer Phone 2 is not for everyone. Much like a Razer Blade laptop isn't meant to be as popular or universally appealing as a Macbook. And we're not just talking about a "gamer" price premium here. The fact of the matter is that most people don't really care about a 120Hz display or want an RGB Chroma logo on the back of their phones. Which, of course, is perfectly fine and well understood by the likes of Razer.

86% Razer Phone 2 review: Strictly for gamers
Source: Engadget English
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 water-resistance and a brighter display are welcome here as well. Be warned though, that it does suffer from poor camera quality and a form factor that’s not very ergonomically-friendly. If you prioritize gaming above all else, then the Phone 2 is worth a look. Others, however, might want to look elsewhere.

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 an excellent flagship choice as long as your main priority isn't the camera.

The Razer Phone 2 is far from a reinvention, and if you weren’t a fan of the original this is unlikely to convince you otherwise. Instead, Razer has doubled down on its idiosyncratic design choices and backed it up with flagship features like waterproofing and wireless charging - along with a few novelty LEDs.

Looking down at the glowing black box on the conference table in Razer's San Francisco offices one thing is already clear: The Razer Phone 2 is a better device than the gaming phone the company debuted a year ago. Mostly, because the brick I'm looking at isn't actually the phone itself, but a wireless charging brick outfitted with a bright ring of colorful LEDs.

Razer Phone 2 hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Going back a year or so in time, there was a lot to love about the original Razer Phone. The same goes for the new Razer Phone 2. In fact, many of these lovable traits are shared between the two models. The key difference here seems to be that Razer has been working hard over the last year to make the new model better by address the key issues the previous model had and most importantly, on making it more appealing as an overall package.

When Razer announced its Razer Phone as a 'gaming smartphone', a sizeable number scoffed at the idea - how can it be a gaming smartphone if everyone has the same flagship hardware? In Razer's own words, they were 'carving a new market' , with features like a 120Hz Ultramotion display and HDR, as well as a special fast chip under the hood. Razer says it easily met their sales expectations, and they are ready to announce the Razer Phone 2, a refined model with a number of extra requested features.

The Razer Phone 2 also features an illuminated Razer logo with customizable Razer Chroma RGB lighting with 16.8 million color options. As for the display, it boasts a 5.7-inch 120 Hz 1,440 x 2,560 IGZO display, delivering an unrivaled standard in mobile gaming refresh rate. The Razer Phone is the only smartphone with a true 120 Hz screen, and that includes both touch sampling and display refresh rate. Users can break into their favorite mobile games at silky-smooth speed with no lag, complete with a response that’s accurate to the touch.

The Razer Phone 2 features a Snapdragon 845 2.8 GHz processor, with a vapor-chamber cooling system that allows heat to spread throughout the phone via a custom vapor chamber, which vastly increases the surface area for heat to dissipate, resulting in fewer hot spots. This allows greater performance and stability compared to traditional cooling methods. Paired with the processor is 8 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, which is expandable by up to 1 TB via a microSD card. As for the camera, the Razer Phone 2 features dual lenses with dual Sony IMX sensors and a wide lens with optical image stabilization. The front camera supports FHD video for sharp face cam footage while streaming or chatting. Razer also developed a new camera app that supports 4K recording (up to 30 fps), HDR, portrait modes for all three cameras, and beauty shots. The Razer Phone 2 comes in two finishes.

QuickCharge 4 Plus can take a battery from 0 to 50 percent capacity in just 30 minutes. A Razer Chroma wireless charging base station, which is a separate purchase features Wireless Fast Charging technology to get the user to full power quickly, so a user will always stay in control for work and play. As a conclusion, the Razer Phone 2 is a smartphone catered primarily for gamers, which is quite a niche market. Although powerful and beautiful, it does not come without a high price tag.
