Razer Phone 2 – The Ultimate Gaming Smartphone

Razer Phone 2 – The Ultimate Gaming Smartphone

So Razer introduced their second in lineup Gaming Phone The Razer Phone 2, which is meant to be a huge blast in the mobile gaming industry according to Razer. “Made For Work Refined For Play” is what Razer says about this one. But is it Really that good. By the looks of it, it’s really similar to it’s predecessor but its got a new aluminum frame and a Glass Back Panel. And we talking about Razer here, its obvious to have RGB int, so there you have it an RGB logo underneath the Glass Panel.

RAZER isn’t doing something new here in the mobile gaming industry they are just tying up with some mobile game studios to optimize their games for the Razer Phone 2, so that the user can enjoy the 120Hz refresh provided by the manufacturer. But still we don’t have many games on android that can go beyond 30fps, this might be a challenge for the gaming mobile manufacturers.

The Changes They Made

The Processor for the new Razer phone 2 is Snapdragon 845 chipset @2.8GHz – this is what most of the leading android flagships are using – for graphical performance we have Adreno 630 visual chip. For heat dissipation Razer opted for the vapor chamber cooling technology instead of the “Heat Pipes” rolling all over the circuit board. Also there is 8GB RAM, a nice 64GB storage capacity and a massive 4000mAh battery. The Razer Phone 2 runs Android 8.1 with Nova Launcher by default, unfortunately Android Pie doesn’t come out of the box but should be available in a soon to come update.

The speakers on this phone is a blast. Two giant speakers that are looking right at you really does make a difference. The company also switched to Sony camera sensors with optical image stabilization — both 12 megapixels, one wide-angle and another regular — for the Razer Phone 2, because earlier the camera on this machine was just terrible. They tried to make some effort by giving software updates but what great great can a software do when the hardware is trash. Also the camera here is not that great as you’d expect for a premium phone like this one to have, you’ll have an OK experience with it. Also they made the phone IP67 water resistant  this time, its not easy to make speakers like those waterproof I’ll give them that. And yes, did I mention it now supports wireless charging.
