Razer designs smartphone for gamers

According to Razer, its phone's display delivers the fastest refresh rates and smoothest graphics among today's smartphones.

For starters, it's about the design.

As for the optics, the Razer Phone packs a dual camera setup with a wide-angle lens with f/1.75 aperture and a zoom lens with an aperture of f/2.6.

Why was ghosting a concern? The smartphone sports a 5.7-inch IGZO LCD (1440x2560) display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, Wide Colour Gamut (WCG) and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top. We're slightly disappointed with this given Razer's propensity for picking names such as Naga or Manticore for its other products.

Old Vic actor says many have 'Spacey stories'

Traditional owners ban Uluru climb
In addition to being incredibly disrespectful, climbing Uluru is often unsafe , and has led to a number of deaths over the years. Figures show only 16 per cent of visitors made the climb during its open times between 2011 and 2015.

That frame rate is insane. It runs on Android 7.1.1 out-of-the-box and assures Android Oreo updates in the future. The framerate never dropped below 80. You can still see G-Sync above 60fps, but the technology shines at low frame rates, when the gap between frames is longer and the stutter from erratic frame delivery is most pronounced. The company emphasized that the Razer Phone targets those consumers who are after high-quality gaming experience right in their mobile devices. Kicking the framerate down to more standard levels will invariably make battery life better.

But as appealing as this phone might seem, there remain a lot of question marks. Can it really compete with the likes of Apple, Google, and Samsung, all of whom have poured hundreds of research hours into building the ideal smartphone camera? It will be sold in Microsoft brick-and-mortar stores so there's a chance to woo some of the Microsoft obsessives, but let's be honest, this is a weird time to enter the phone market. The bezels will also allow you hold the phone horizontally while playing and not worry about getting some palm on the display. Some of the games on the Google Play app store that'll benefit from this ability to jam more frames into a smaller amount of time include: Titanfall: Assault, Tekken, and Final Fantasy XV.

Particularly as Android gaming has always played second fiddle to iOS!

Alongside of the new Razer Phone, Razer is also offering its own Hammerhead BT earbuds, the Razer Phone Rugged Case for added phone protection, and the silicon-based Razer Phone Word Case to protect its new phone from wear and tear.
