Honestly the colors are still sharp and still packs a punch!
the screen is plenty bright, trust me it's at a very good level of brightness yet again not to compare with lets say a pixel 3 or samsung 9 or any OLED screen for the matter, but the brightness it achieves is more then perfect.
I'm coming from a Samsung galaxy s7 and this thing smokes that phone by miles in almost every aspect!
Reviewers state this camera is trash! Absolutely not true, Download Gcam PORT, off the XDA website
Its google camera ported over and usable on other andriod devices so its not exclusive to the nexus and pixel only
I've downloaded the latest version MGC_6.1.009_MI8_V1a.apk BSG, 2018-10-19 and my camera went from useless to taking pictures as good as my girlfriends pixel 3! It turns out, We have the hardware! but we lack the software!
In the end the camera is fantastic! just need to download google cam port app for our phones.
120% screen is fantastic! I cannot go back to 60Hz after being spoiled with this silky smooth and responsive screen. now my phone matches my gaming experience off my desktop!
Battery life is amazing, Tips, Don't leave your RGB logo on HIGH, Keep it on medium/notifications enabled What that will do is only turn on the razer logo on the back of the phone when the screen is on reducing battery consumption, let's all be real now, you don't need RGB, in your pocket or purse Lol!
People say 120Hz drains your battery quicker, honestly not 100% true, I've used this phone for a a few days now and haven't noticed any difference in battery compared to all the phones I've owned in the past, The only difference is this phone actually lasts way longer due to the 4,000 MAH battery it has. I game on it, Use gps, talk on it. Use it for work all day. and I still get home with enough juice to carry me through another half a day. But also keep in mind I might be doing like 15-30 min gaming sessions through the day so Im not gaming on it super hardcore as can game will drain the battery no matter what phone your on, But I can tell you it will drain alot slower then other phones.
Packs a punch! Great price! Only few little issues that you need to know about
Had to contact verizon to get my phone to work about 1 hour call, Tip! Ask for tier 2 support and tell them to convert your phone to a cdma less profile, it will fix the problem with receiving text messages (This only applies for verzion folks)
As of 10-31-2018 Amazon has yet any cases for this phone and razer is selling cases for this phone at a pretty hefty price I'm not willing to pay lol, 3rd party companies need to hurry their butts and make some more options for us :P.
Gets a little hot when gaming but no where close to uncomfortable, I have not seen any drop in performance or lag in any title I've played, so far so good will update this if anything changes!
I Don't review often, Just wanted to give my opinion and views on this little beast of a phone. Take care.
First off, it really is a great phone for an almost pure Android experience. I love the fact that there is minimal bloat pre-installed, and what is belongs to Razer or are the defaults like YouTube, etc. The screen is fast and text is super clear. The speakers are amazing, I've only needed to turn them up to half to clearly enjoy music.
A few of the downfalls - First, it took almost an hour with Verizon to get the phone to work at 100%. Just inserting your sim card will get you phone calls and outgoing text messages, but receiving texts will not work until you register your device. You will have to contact them for this to work right now. You need what's called a CDMA-less profile on your account.
Second, the phone now comes with wireless charging, but don't be fooled. If you have a charger already, there is a very good chance it won't work if it's a stand up model, as the coil in the phone are in a weird place (closer to the bottom instead of center). This means that for your charger to work, it will need to lay it down on the pad and you have to move it around to find that sweet spot, that is not very big. Your other options is to by the $99 Chroma charger that Razer sells, except, it's out of stock. I have three wireless chargers, and so far none of them work unless I lay the phone flat on it (which only one lays flat).
Third, there are no cases for this phone unless you buy from Razer directly. At this moment, there are three available, the premium $50 Kevlar case and the bright green and black World case for $25. If you order just the case, it will cost you an additional $10 for shipping, since they are not made locally in the US. At the time I ordered the case, only the Kevlar was available, so I spent $60 for a thin piece of plastic, however, it is much better than no case, as the glass back makes the phone slide around easily. I have no doubt that the Kevlar case will provide little to no protection if dropped.
Fourth, if you are coming from a premium phone like the Samsung Galaxy series, this phone is huge. It's going to take some getting used to holding this phone. The fingerprint reader is in a great spot, but I do find my self hitting it often when picking up the phone. Both the reader and the volume keys are centered on both sides, so if you have a car stand that closes on the sides, it's going to mess with your volume buttons easily.
Fifth, the camera kinda sucks, even with it's improvements. The software isn't much better. You are limited to the old 4:3 photo size, while the majority of Android phones give you size options for 16:9, etc. The reason for the size is the same reason Apple doesn't offer different ones, it's the best quality for the camera sensor. However, most other flagship phones have been able to include software to fix the quality issue when using a wider setting. Your only option at the moment is to find a different camera app from the Play store to use.
Sixth, Not all apps are fully compatible yet. I am a big fan of the texting app Textra, as it has many features I use. However, it currently is unable to receive photos, and I have been forced to use the standard texting app for now. This is not the end of the world, however, it's worth noting that not everything may work out of the box.
Lastly, the Chroma notification on the back is partial useless. It was added to please the fans that have other Razer devices and love the glow. As it's on the back of the phone, you won't see it most of the time. Only when you have your phone face down. I have yet to figure out how to set up notifications for it, but I haven't had a large amount of time to play with that feature.
If you play a lot of games, this is most definitely the phone for you. However, if you use your phone for most other things, you might want to stick with what you already know. I find my self missing my Note 8 and the features like the Always On Display, or a volume icon in the pull down.
I'll be giving the phone a few more days before I decide if it's worth keeping or returning. It's a great concept, but it still needs work before it can compete with the high prices phones that are already out.

Turn it off or change the settings to a different sound and no more popapopop crackala bingo.
Pro1: the display is on par with my new iPad Pro 11 inch, it’s also very accurate in color, I can see that Razer did put a lot of work on the color management of this device. Most Importantly, it is an LCD display which means it does not hurt your eyes like the OLED disply does. Since nowadays All of OLED displays on smartphones come with the PWM brightness-adjust system which lower the brightness by lowering the refresh rate. Human eyes usually get very tired and uncomfortable when seeing a display with refresh rate that is under 300 hz , while the the PWM OLED on smartphones ususally refresh around 280 hz. Have you ever feel tired when you watch your smartphone in a dark environment? The PWM is the answer. Not like the OLED, LCD displays adjust the brightness by lowering the brightness of the back panel. It’s not as power efficient and contrasty like the OLED but it’s good for our eyes. Not to mention the silky smooth 120hz display.
Pro2: the cooling system is extremely efficient. For many of those who complain about the feeling of the phone getting warm, it’s actually due to the aggressive cooling system. It spread the heat throughout the whole body of the device so the CPU and GPU could sustain at its maximum clock speed for a significantly longer time. If the heat is trapped inside the phone, and you don’t even feel hot, that’s the worst. Just imagine, in every intensive game, the note 9 only need to render 60 frames every second while the Razer phone 2 need to render 120 frames, yet they have the same Gpu which is the adreno 630. It is very challenging for the cooling system.
Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE other than the display and cooling system I mentioned above. If I have time, I will add them later. Basically avoid this immature phone and wait until next generation product.
All the cons: it buffers every 10 seconds, randomly stops video recording that's if I can get past the black screen camera issue, the battery doesn't hold up as long as their application guesses it basically makes up it's own number, the logo even when turned off randomly turns on(shown in video), phone can't run games on lowest settings without buffering,( can barely handle a low demanding game at 120Hz(check video), speakers pop(Dolby Atmos makes it worse, and so on
Check out my video that has nearly 6K views on my channel and tell me your experience with the phone in the comments as I would love to hear how your experience went. - Tech 4 Life
Phone is absolutely amazing, requires a case I tried the big bulky Tudia Merge one for $15 but it was terrible and made the hot phone even hotter, but it's nice in the cold weather of Canada; however, I replaced it with a carbon fiber one which basically protects the weak points of the Razer 2 without making it thicker, but it cost like $55 so obviously you pay for what you get. Would definitely recommend Razer phone 2 with the carbon protector as a daily use smartphone!
That Purposely made Boxy Shape looks Classy
The Phone is powerful even has a Vapor cooling chamber.... nothing to say. It's Great. responsive because of the 120Hz Display and 2K resolution. Loud and clear with the Dolby Atmos Dual Speakers. Aswell of being waterproof.... even tho the Cameras are 8MP front and 12MP for both back dual camera... that phone records 4K videos so it also takes awesome pictures. I'm Fan. HIGHLY recommended (the only downside is the 1k$ up front)
Edit: Box shape is still classy but will leave marks on any pair of pants, powerful wouldnt be the word i would use, more like standard with Warmth envelopping the whole case easily. 120Hz... Nothing special. 2K resolution... Fine.
Loud and Clear... Well i would say it was alright, pretty good at first but the Supposedly "WaterProof" My Top Speaker stopped working properly after cleaning the grid with a sligtly wet soft brush that constantly gets dirty with anything
my speaker is no longer working properly.
This is without mentionning my VERY hard time charging the phone, i need to use elastics and carefully place it down.
also this is my first and last time i buy razer products.
I've used pretty much every brand of phone you can think of. They all have pros and cons.
-great batterylife, especially if you change the screen to 60hz (comes with 90 out of the box) I do have it set for 120 on certain games.
- the design is sleek and different with the box style and flat edges. I personally love that style instead of the generic curves.
- the Dolby Atmos actually works. The phone sounds amazing and does replace my mini blutooth portable speaker.
- the color accuracy is perfectly calibrated. I watch a lot of Netflix, crave, amazon prime videos while running on a treadmill and the image quality is beautiful.
- as a gamer I don't really care for gaming on phones but to be honest this phone really makes it more fun to game on. It's comfortable for long sessions of gaming
-as a gaming phone this phone has power for anything you throw at it. This also helps it be future proofed in my opinion.
-the camera is not great.
It has had an update that did improve it drastically. But out of the box the camera software is not so good.
Thankfully it's hardware is good. Nothing some other camera software can't fix.
- I found the wifi range to be slightly worse than other competitors devices. This could just be me or my device. Nothing too drastic. But for some reasons if I turn off blutooth it works better.
-brightness is still not soo good. If you live somewhere that's always very sunny it's slightly hard to see the screen clearly. But I personally don't use my phone much when outdoors
Overall this is defenitly a great phone. I hesitated on purchasing the first model but 7 months in I regret nothing.
Biggest issue that is not related to the phone was shipping from the local contracted shipping company Intercom. Honestly the worst shipping company I have dealt with which I do on a daily basis for work. Zero attempts to drop off after a holiday/ lost package and untraceable. Local intercom workers were unable to even deal with Amazon tracking system. It would have been faster to order a new phone with another shipping company with prime.
This phone sucks, it makes total sense that this phone is over retailing for over 50% off and on the Razer website
I also didnt notice anything incredible or significantly different about the display, video streaming, refresh rate or nothing unless you are reading the system specs of the phone and comparing it with other phones, you would never know the difference
I would rather a "pay as you go" flip phone with no pre paid minutes on it, then spend another second in this room with my data packed frozen and unrespive flagship Razer Phone 2
Screen and perfornce was easily the smoothest I have ever experienced on a mobile phone, even when it technically isn't much of a jump over what I had previously used. Speakers incredibly loud and didn't start to distort at all, can be easily used to project sound in a room in place of a speaker. Colors on the screen where very good and I had no difficulty outside. Finger print sensor was also on the best place I've ever used on a phone, always within reach no matter which hand is holding it.
However, the 16:9 aspect ratio combined with the navigation row made some web pages not work very well at all, such as the web version of outlook. I thought I used a wireless charger more often then a headphone jack and could live with its absence, but I couldn't. Additionally, while it did have a wireless charger, it was so close to the charging port it was unuseable with any charging stands, and the heft of the phone made it too unbalanced to place in a way flat pads would work. The battery life was ok, nothing fantastic.
Overall while I really liked the phone, it was too much of a sacrifice of things I use every day for me to warrant the purchase.
