It's going to be a big flop. He should've learnt from Microsoft's Xbox, it's the software, not the hardware. Hardcore gamers seldom play casual mobile games, casual gamers don't buy hardcore "gaming phones". Even if they want gaming phone, iphones are usually a lot better because software is a lot better optimized on them.
This.

At least console makers can lock in exclusive games to help with sales. This is something that is impossible for Razer to do. Also, to market this as a "hardcore gaming phone" is an oxymoron by itself, for the simple fact that hardcore gamers don't play mobile games, much less on a supposedly "hardcore gaming phone".

But what I think will render this product dead-on-arrival is the >1k price for a company's very first, unproven phone. Really Razer? Self-delusion much?

Key specs:
  • 120Hz 5.7" IGZO (Sharp made) screen
  • Snapdragon 835
  • 4,000 mAh battery (wtf)
  • 8gb RAM
  • 64gb storage
  • Using Nova launcher

Looks like a really nice phone. It will be retailing for 699USD.
This is what a Sony phone should have been like! They got big bezels and form factor but never managed to pack that kind of tech in.

...You put in those Ang moh hand, they use it swipe tinder only... maybe play 2048 abit... maybe play wheel of fortune abit... use it to Netflix..

Put into the Chinese hand, immediately you will know whether your phone is a gaming phone or not. Continuous play mobile legend Until blind.
到佐印度仔嘅手,就。。。

Our country is full of gaming ppl and produce some champion in gaming world... yet itís launched in the US and might be sue by Sony for the similar design and similar fingerprint sensor placement... US is dominated by iPhone and Samsung... the essential phone CMI already with Andy Rubin name...

Should launch in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand or even China first.. 😤

Singapore adoption rate is one of the finest in the world.. and Singapore carrot head is one of the highest in the world..
One plus carrot head? Yes.
Iphone X carrot head? Yes.
Google pixel carrot head? Yes.


RAZER???????????? Doubt so. lol

Depends on how you view it?
If consider off-contract US price tag ip8/+ starts at Pixel 2 +$50

Op5 starts at -$190 than ip8.

Depends how you look at it, but with telco subsidy and flip market doesn't look as carrot.

Phone is actually by nextbit which actually originated from guy over at HTC. I believe QC wonít be that bad. Most prob is the OS and ecosystem will be a mess.

Knn, sd835 + 4000mah battery = gamers phone? 120 hz screen with lower latency got what use? You are still connected to WiFi with high latencies plus all the noise in hdb with hundreds of wifi all fighting for bandwidths unless you use a portal router that have DFS channels. Not like you plugging into a lan cable anytime soon anyway.. just gimmick la..

Go for mate 10 with 4000mah or OP5 is more practical imo

It's not exactly Huawei problem. I believed it's related to Sd810 that has a whole bunch of problems just like LG G4 bootloop.. so now LG and Huawei has to make up for it with 2 years warranty..

Actually for the specs I think the price is pretty reasonable. But still need to see how much markup when it comes to SG
