Phone provided by Razer for review.
One review of MKBHD that actually is disappointing. The Razer phone being a Gamers' phone, I was expecting to see a review which particularly focuses itself on gamings but see none of them.
Reviewing the phone just like any other normal phones is, I think not doing justice to the phone.
I went the other way. I initially purchased the Pixel 2. The camera was straight up amazing. But I found screen color to shift as you change the viewing angle of the phone. This issue was apparent on both the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2XL I tried at the store. They are very noticeable and aren't subtle on either phone as some have mentioned. I also found the touch screen to be inconsistent as far as how much pressure is needed to get a response from the phone. I found that I was having to touch the screen more than once just to get a response. The first touch, no matter how hard I pressed did not register, then the second touch (even if it was much lighter) would work. The pinch to zoom feature was annoyingly slow too. I had to pinch and hold for a second before the zoom feature responded. All this was right out the box and so there was no excuse for the performance issues in my opinion. So I sent the Pixel 2 back and purchased this Razor phone. The Razor phone is a bit large for my taste, but I can certainly live with that. The camera is no where as near as good as the Pixel 2, but then again I don't take much photos (Razor did update the software to the camera and I hear you can download the Pixel 2 camera app to improve photo quality). So no deal breaker there. The screen on the Razor is excellent (For those worried about screen brightness and outside use, there is a setting to adjust color profile for outside use that helps a lot.) The audio coming out the front facing speakers is superb. The audio and visual mean a lot to me because I like to watch a lot of video off my smart phone. The specs are excellent for this day in age. The battery is excellent. Throughout the day I watch video, surf the web, play games, use GPS and still find that I don't need to charge the phone until the end of the day. Even when I do charge the phone, it is fast. When I show my friends and co-workers the phone many say they have never heard of Razor before. Others think of the original Motorola Razor phone when they hear the name (LOL). Overall I am pleased with the purchase.
I just cant believe u count that as a dealbreaker like cmon its a PHONE not a dslr it has one of the best specs right now and what u care about is the camera? Bruh if u want a good camera then buy a dslr.
A gamer is someone who plays a large number of games on a pc or a console. That being said, an individual who plays games on a phone only is not a gamer. And i highly doubt that anyone who is a real gamer would waste money on a "gaming" phone. I really dont see the point of this product as i dont get the whole "gaming phone" deal .
“They threw in the dual cameras that you are basically required to have as a 2017 flagship phone” -MKBHD
Yet his favorite smartphone of all time is the Pixel 2 (which has a single camera, not dual). And don’t even start with the comments about how the Pixel doesn’t need a dual setup with its portrait mode (Also, be original guys. Portrait Mode? Really?). The telephoto lens is used for zooming in closer without losing quality in the image. I use the 2x optical zoom infinitely more than portrait mode on my iPhone X. So yeah, dual cameras aren’t just for portrait mode and the Pixel 2 (at least the XL) should have included them.oh and he bashed this for removing the headphone jack, yet his favorite phone doesn’t have one either.
The logo is such a deal breaker. Their products are great overall and have a good quality but the logo cuts it off. Wouldnt want to go to work with a laptop that has a disco keyboard and a bunch of snakes on it. even a white square would look more professional
The camera is literally the only thing that stops me from buying the Razer phone
i dont even mind the lack of the aux cable
a razerphone and the new hammerhead bluetooth earphones would look freaking amazing together
I like this kind of body design.
I like still iPhone 5 because of that design bt apple lost there uniqueness after iphone 6.
Some signature should be in such brand but now a days every brand have same design.😡
Jesus loves you he is always there for you turn to him sincerely
romans chapter 10:9 " If you declare with your mouth, " Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
We need more phones like this. This is what the essential phone should be. great display huge battery lots of ram and power excellent speakers no frills (other than the 120hz deal) I just wish it had a better camera and it NEEDS a headphone jack. For that reason alone I can't buy it.
the deal breaker for me is the lack of water resistance. "is it really though" Yes...it really is. I regularly talk on my phone in the rain and take it in the shower with me. Been doing it every since the galaxy s5.
Wow, i cant believe that you thought the dealbreaker on this phone was the camera, its still super exceptional as a day to day camera, if you want better quality in a phone camera, get a different phone purpose built around the camera, or better yet, get a f*&^ing camera.
