Razer Gaming Phone

So recently I picked up a brand new Razer Phone because I got a hell of a deal for it, so I thought “Why not?”. I’ve heard a lot about the Phone, how it’s the best one for mobile gaming, and also very good for everyday use. And since my Huawei P20 is getting a bit outdated, I just decided to go for it. So today I would like to go on a bit of a rant about the Razer Phone. And who knows, maybe some of you decide to also get one if you’re debating on getting a new phone. So let’s just get into it.

My Thoughts

While I knew the Razer Phone was good for gaming, I have never expected for it to perform this good during everyday use. The main camera picture quality is simply stunning. I would even compare it to the iPhone 6S’ back camera, which was a huge leap in image quality at the time. Few games I tried on Razer Phone all ran without any problems whatsoever. I usually play games like Clash Royale, Crashlands, the Sorcerer and so on. But this time, I gave those mobile MMOs a chance. Games like Epic7, Ragnarok M, and Brown Dust. Not often will I give those games a chance, but since I now had this absolute beast of a phone, I thought I’d give it a shot. I can say with confidence, that the Razer Phone performs as described. I can’t remember a single time I had a frame drop or a latency issue. Mind you, I played while connected on Wi-Fi.

Also, I must say, the back camera has a lot of options compared to some other phones I used. You can snap some amazing shots using the phone’s variety of focus options, which I very much liked.

Summary

At the end of the day, no one should complain that the Razer is trying to push the limits of gaming equipment to the max. Even though mobile gaming is not considered real gaming for most PC and Console gamers, it still is, in fact, gaming. We can only hope that the equipment we use to play games only gets better and better over the years, and we can thank Razer for giving their best to raise the standards for other manufacturers and developers.
