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

On the whole, though, I think the Razer Phone achieves what it set out to achieve – to be an excellent phone for gamers. It won’t appeal to the mass-market the same way the Galaxy S8 has, but the excellent sound, fantastic display and all-round performance make it perfect for mobile gamers or streamers.

The Razer Phone is a fantastic handset that makes the case for smartphones including variable refresh rate screens. It’s only a shame the camera falls way short of expectations.

The Razer Phone is packed full of power and potential, but the stumbling block is its niche appeal. Its design may not blow people away, but the super stereo speakers and gaming-focused display will appeal to some.

Razer Phone Preview: Brute Force and Piercing Volume
Source: Androidbeat English
Yes, it’s big, it’s black, it’s heavy and it’s cold metal. In fact, it’s typical Razer – no frills high end hardware, and it’s how we love the company.

So, is the Razer Phone the revolutionary device that will finally shake the smartphone industry, rearrange priorities and change the rules? No. Realistically, it can probably hope to match or best the sales of its Nextbit Robin ancestor and gain some traction with loyal brand fans.

For the everyman, however, there are better-looking, longer-lasting and equally as powerful devices which sack-off of the screen's refresh rate for the sake of being better all-round devices.

Razer Phone review: How to build a smartphone for gamers

The Razer phone is priced at a pretty reasonable $699, and will be available from the company’s website on November 17th. Those in the EU and UK can also snag one via wireless carrier Three, which is Razer’s exclusive wireless partner for that region.

70% Razer Phone Review: A Gaming Monster We Almost Love
Source: Tom's Guide English
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 drawbacks, including a camera that's poor in low light, the lack of a headphone jack and a screen that simply doesn't dazzle like OLED. That battery life could also be better.

The phone will cost US$699 and will be available to buy on 17 November in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Denmark and Sweden. Customers in launch countries can also reserve the phone on Razer’s website. And as a nod to its fans, Razer is making just 1,337 units of a special limited edition model with the Razer logo in its original bright green.

70% Razer Phone Review: Gamer’s delight?
Source: Recombu English
The Razer Phone disappoints when it comes to the camera tech and the blocky design, which at a lower price point would be more forgivable. However, at £699 we really do expect a full package, which this handset doesn't deliver.

Stay tuned for a full review of the Razer Phone in the coming weeks but in the meantime, what did you think of the Razer Phone? Do you plan to buy one?

Razer Phone hands-on

The Razer Phone’s unique hardware is impressive and means, on paper at least, that the handset should be a solid choice for mobile gamers. My only concern is that Razer’s not got a whole lot of experience in mobile software – an area that can make or break any phone.

The Razer Phone is here at last – a smartphone built for gamers, by gamers, but we'll say this straight away – you don't need to be a gamer to appreciate this smartphone.

The Razer Phone is packed full of power and potential, but the stumbling block could well be its niche appeal. Its design may not blow people away, but its stereo speakers may do just that, while a gaming focus will certainly appeal to some.

The big screen and stereo speakers make it a formidable piece of kit to hold, and the angular, industrial-looking metal design is a world away from the curves and glass of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 or the iPhone X.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Razer: Razer USA Ltd. is an American hardware manufacturer founded in 1998. The focus is on gaming devices as well as accessories; traditionally computer mice. The products were often named after fables or animals. However, Razer also offers laptops under the series name "Blade".

There are reviews on the Razer Blade series since 2013, but not overly many. The market share in the laptop market is low and the ratings are average (as of 2016).


78.1%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
