In a grand launch event, Razer proudly launched their smartphone which has been truly designed to be the ultimate gaming phone anyone could get their hands on.
While all the major brands like Samsung, LG and Apple have been making smartphones for nearly a decade now, they were always focused on the average consumer and never found the inclination to cater to a niche crowd. In their 2017 flagship models, HTC U11 and Google Pixel 2 finally caters to the needs of photography lovers. Their cameras can now take DSLR quality photos which is an achievement nevertheless but that’s the biggest change in all these years combined with bezel less display.
When Razer purchased the smartphone company NextBit, they seemed to have a clear idea of what to do with the technology that landed in their production side. The Razer smartphone is a true gaming device in every respect and from the looks of it, the company didn’t compromise at any point and in fact delivers more than even what the hardcore gamers would demand.
120Hz display, the first of its kind on a smartphone
The display has to be 60hz or 120hz in order to showcase a game that is running at 60 frames per second or higher. The faster the game is, the easier it will be for you to make it respond to your quick moves and enjoy immersive action. The PC gaming peripheral manufacturer seemed to have a clear idea of providing the best frames per second which is of secondary nature on the consoles but a must-have for PC gamers.
On a mobile phone,a player would definitely experience the difference when even a simple title like Angry Birds or Clash of Clans would run at 120FPS whenever possible. The difference is phenomenal and provides a completely different experience on a smartphone like never before. It also opens new avenues for developers like Gameloft to make more console-quality titles for the Android smartphone.
Dual front firing speakers
Bezel less design is something gamers would hate because they make it difficult to hold the phone during long sessions. Razer has worked on it and had made it into an advantage by including dual firing front speakers providing the best audio, not only during gaming but also for music and when watching videos on the large, beautiful display. In other words, it’s a great device for gamers as well as multimedia lovers.
The phone is equipped with Dolby Atmos audio, DAC and has multiple equalizer settings which can easily be switched through based on whether you are watching a movie, music or playing a game. Amazing audio quality is also ensured for users especially when they listen to sounds making using of a good headphone.
Bigger Battery and Powerful Specs
Most PC gamers who don’t play may use lesser RAM but the Razer gaming smartphone has a massive 8GB of RAM which may sound unheard of and overkill on a mobile device. But, for gaming it is necessary and will ensure all AAA titles would run seamless on the smartphone irrespective of how many apps are open at the same time.
Besides, the RAM is equally supported by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. If you are looking to extend the battery life of the massive 4,000 mAh battery in the phone, you can also choose to reduce the resolution of the phone from its 1440p to 720p or 1080p which will make it a reliable gaming device on the go. In every aspect, the Razer smartphone is an amazing gaming device and the best of its kind for a first launch except for the expensive price tag $699.99 which is a given considering the specs of the phone.
