The Razer Phone has a price tag of around $700 (~₹45,000).

It's still early for a full review, but on first impressions, the Razer Phone is a surprisingly good effort at the firm's first crack at a smartphone - but only because it sticks to tried-and-tested formula.

He continued: "We have wanted to make a phone with gaming-level tech for years, and the Razer Phone delivers in every way we imagined". We are yet to see the kind of response Razer will get in the market. "It is 18 by 9 form factor, OLED, with no bezels".

So what are your thoughts about the Razer Phone?

That's because Razer actually acquired Nextbit late previous year for the express goal of having the Robin team build the new Razer Phone. You may recall that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro also features 120Hz refresh rate. Although, it might not have the best looks that we are used to seeing in the high-end device segment. It not exactly a pretty-looking phone.

For starters, it's about the design.

Popular gaming-centric paraphernalia manufacturer Razer announced just yesterday its foray into the smartphone world with a handset that seems like a surprisingly=good package. It's also equipped with Dolby Atmos in the dual front-facing speakers. The speakers are positioned in such a way that you can hold the phone in the landscape mode without blocking the sound.

I've be a little anxious about grit being caught in that speaker grill.

Under the hood, Razer Phone is powered by Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset, paired with a whopping 8GB of RAM. A dual 12-megapixel camera is seated at the rear of the phone.

Razer skipped the OLED display, which makes it a neat alternative to anything Samsung is doing.

Razer uses an LCD to avoid ghosting.

Why was ghosting a concern? There's no time for a frame to linger longer than it's welcome. But that highlights another oddity-technologies like G-Sync and FreeSync don't typically engage above a certain refresh rate because the advantages of both shrink the higher the native frame rate.

Razer deals with products which are created especially for gamers.

That frame rate is insane. Razer will run Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) out of the box, which will be updated to Android 8.0 (Oreo) sometime in the next few weeks. The framerate never dropped below 80. That's more than enough to support the heaviest of games Android has to offer.

But if you don't want to eat through that big phone battery by playing games at insane speeds, Razer has brought over another big feature from PC gaming: Choice.

The device has an angular design that's devoid of the curved edges and glossy finishes that appear on the Google Pixel 2 and iPhone X. 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. There are thick bezels at the top and bottom of the display.

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. This, however, is the USA price; there is no word on whether the smartphone will be released in India.
