    6 days ago - By Digital Trends

    The Razer Phone had a great screen, strong speakers, powerful performance, but a mediocre camera, no water resistance, and a high price. With the Razer Phone 2, Razer has improved on the predecessor in every way.

    The gaming-centric Razer Phone 2 is official, and it brings a range of minor upgrades over the original Razer Phone. Razer doesn't want you thinking about its new handset as a gaming phone though. Rather, it claims this is a flagship smartphone that also happens to be an excellent gaming machine. With a 5.7-inch UltraMotion display with a 120Hz refresh rate, Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, dual rear cameras and a 4,000mAh battery it appears to be well equipped to tackle today's flagships. Razer has also added a glass rear and wireless charging to the handset this year...

    2017 was an exciting year for phones. We saw the rise of new, now common design elements and the unveiling of a few altogether new, and unique phones in the market. Some, like the Essential Phone, have yet to return with a second generation but gaming company Razer is back for round two - and that's no small feat. Introducing the Razer Phone 2 - the second smartphone ever with true 120hz refresh rates, second only to the original Razer Phone.

    The second-generation Razer Phone is just as good at gaming, and better at being a phone.
    Although flawed in execution, the original Razer Phone wasn't hopelessly bad. It was a good idea in need of further refinement. Razer had a silky 120Hz display, but daylight visibility was so poor that outdoor use was painful. It had a dual camera system, but with photo quality that'd be embarrassing on a phone half the price. Plus it was missing table-stakes features like water resistance, and shipped on an old version of Android. Although some of the above improved with software updates, the...

    The Razer Phone 2 shows it's what's inside that counts

    6 days ago - By The Next Web

    Razer's first smartphone was one of the more unique devices last year. Bucking the trend of tiny bezels and curvy lines, Razer built a beastly, boxy device with giant speakers, a massive battery, and the first 120hz display in a smartphone. But it had its fair share of issues too. The camera was lackluster and lacked optical image stabilization. The LCD display was fast but not particularly great otherwise. And the phone missed out on features available on other flagships like wireless charging and waterproofing. The Razer Phone 2 looks nearly identical to its predecessor from the front...

    It was only last year that Razer finalized its purchase of Nextbit and quickly released the Razer Phone-the world's first gaming-centric smartphone. This year's Razer Phone 2 maintains its focus on the unique design language and hardcore internals we loved, while refining key weaknesses and adding RGB for maximum ‘tude. My colleague Gordon Mah Ung and I got some hands-on time with the Razer Phone 2 a couple of weeks before launch-and even though it looks similar to last year's version, it's been reworked from the inside out.

    Razer is introducing a new flagship smartphone, the Razer Phone 2, that's meant to establish a foothold in the new gaming phone market. I had the chance to spend some time with Razer's new flagship and found the new phone looks nearly identical to the first, but it has a new aluminum frame that has gone through a complete structural revamp. The Razer Phone 2 is meant to be a gaming phone , so there have also been relevant improvements made to the screen and audio, but also helpful additions that weren't in the phone last year, like waterproofing.

    The Razer Phone 2 got official with top-shelf new hardware in tow, and is primed and ready to tackle all those who oppose its gaming superiority. Although the Razer Phone was ultimately a niche device, the Razer Phone 2 aims to be a much more mainstream device by improving a few key aspects, namely the camera and the performance.
    In the end of the day, the Razer Phone 2 seems like a good deal for $799, which is the suggested retail price that Razor advises., but it will have to best the likes of the Galaxies and the iPhones for that spot in people's pockets. How does the Razer Phone 2...

    The Razer Phone 2 isn't massively different from the first version. And that's OK.
    Razer is a brand familiar to many gamers, whether they're on PC, console or as of 2017, mobile. While the company is known for making gaming-focused laptops, the Razer Phone was the company's first foray into the pocket computer and truly portable gaming.
    The first Razer Phone was very good from the mindset of a mobile gaming fan. A high refresh rate display paired with top-of-the-line internals and a beastly battery was just what the doctor ordered. But it came with its share of faults.

    Razer was first to the pass with its 'gaming phone', the originally titled Razer Phone, which launched in 2017. Just shy of one year later and the Razer Phone is back, in new form, in the even-more-originally-titled Razer Phone 2. Yep, the sequel is here with even more power, a brighter screen , a glass rear and wireless charging, plus Razer Chroma LED logo for a look unlike any other phone on the market. But questions linger: does anyone really need a gaming phone and is the follow-up device enough of a change to entice a wider market than just the mobile gaming niche? Design & Logo

    Let's start with the gaming features. The screen is a 5.7" IGZO LCD panel with QHD resolution instead - Razer believes 16:9 is best for multimedia. It did make the new screen 50% brighter than before, hitting 645 nits maximum. The company claims that the new panel is better at preserving detail in dark scenes.

    Everything about the Razer Phone 2 seems familiar, yet improved and refined. An experience quite similar to upgrading your computer's GPU or swapping your console for the next version - both notions which gamers are accustomed to and comfortable with. Still, the question remains as to whether the upgrade job was enough to mend all or at least most of the issues we found with the original Razer Phone.
