    That's quite annoying, I am currently waiting for Three to update so I can order mine as an upgrade.

    why announce and release it in same week - but make people wait a whole month after they pay for it before they ship it.

    i ordered the phone, the carboin case and i found a voucher for a free Goliathus mouse mat - ordered all at same time...

    i have already received the mouse mat, then i received the damn phone case today....but i still ogt 3 weeks before I can even hope to see this phone...

    is there any chance i will see this phone earlier???

    Some preorder is already delivered.

    I’m from the US, just check and now says mine is out for delivery. Razer website said when I ordered (13 OCT) they ship today 22OCT now it says shipping starts 26OCT. Maybe they are backordered.

  9. Received my Razer Phone 2 at 10:30AM this morning. Impressions:

    Sound quality is terrible, the speakers have lots of crackling and distortion on anything past half volume. Both speakers. Turning on/off Dolby Atmos makes zero difference, switching through the different presets Dynamic,Movie,Music and Custom makes zero difference either. The Camera quality is atrocious still, I have both an iPhone XS Max and Pixel 3XL that I was hoping my Razer Phone 2 would replace as my daily but unfortunately it's not looking good.

    The vibration motor is MUCH improved, nowhere near as good as the Pixel 3 XL or XS Max but it's usable now. Feels like a vibration motor from a flagship Android device circa 2015.

    The screen is much brighter, looks beautiful and fluid as ever. Absolutely missed how amazingly smooth 120hz is. Hoping the Razer 2 would address all the issues I had with my original Razer Phone, turns out they only fixed the screen brightness and vibration motor.

    Very disappointed so far, getting an RMA to return this POS. This ruined my week.

    With the post above, I too am doing an RMA on my RP2. Issues with sound quality, atrocious camera still both front and back, dullness of color present as well when compared even to last gen flagship models from different companies. On top of that if you are Verizon forget about it completely. You can send texts and make calls but 0% chance of receiving.

    The 120hz refresh rate is quite nice and games handle flawlessly on this device but I don't feel that really makes up for the number of negatives that have come up within the first 24 hours of attempting to use the device.

    I got my Razer Phone 2 today and I am also experiencing crackling speakers at high volume/bass, which is sad because I love everything else about it. If nothing official is said in a week I'll be refunding it.

    This is weird, they should make improvement on this area, saw those youtubers but my Razer Phone 1 seems even has way better sound, can’t use max volume at home, it’s too loud unlike those reviews. If it’s not software issue it could be something to do with new water proof feature.

    sounds like the sound system isn't as good as what's advertised

    Has razer phone 1 been updated to android pie yet?

    Are they going to release any better cases than that thin clear one? I'd like a silicone one, please. No 3rd parties.

    Otherwise, it's no sale for me. If they don't update last year's phone how can I trust them to update this one?

    Our sony xz2c have already been updated some time ago and it is from 2017 as well. I'm tempted to just get another xz2c.

    Not yet, Razer Phone 1 Oreo update was also a bit later compared to other brands, on Razer Phone 2 they also mentioned pie update sometimes in idk. But it’ll be, with Razer from laptop to phone software updates you have to have a bit patient;)

    Droid Life was excited about the camera in thier review. Called it capable and an improvement.

    Wondering if it's just your unit.
