  1. Been using my razer phone for over a week now, was tired of my zforce and wanted to try something different. I will start with the pros and cons.

    Pros
    -Screen: obviously, it's nice and sharp, no color shifting, I experienced no brightness issues and off course the refresh rate.
    -Sound: front facing stereo speakers, they sound good, really good and make the experience so much more enjoyable. I use V-MODA crossfade 2 wireless headphones and they sound absolutely fantastic, Dolby atmos bring them to life. I mostly use them over Bluetooth and the experience is flawless when paired with razer. This device should be marketed as a multimedia device first.
    -Storage:files take more and more space, yet the trend seems to limit the amount of available memory. Data is to expensive in Canada,making online storage not an option.
    -From factor: This was my main selling point, I highly dislike edge to edge screen, thin device, glass back. It's industrial, functional and feel good in hand.
    -Battery : It's great, I'm getting easily a day without a charge and so far gave me no issues.
    -Heat management : all my previous device would get hot during heavy use, not this one. I'm not sure if it's the 835 or the razer design, maybe both. Definitely nice to not hold a personal heater in your hands.

    Cons
    - Some of the buildings materiel, screen should have been gorilla glass 5 not 3 for obvious reasons. The camera lens have 0 scratch resistance 1 week of use and it's badly scratch already.

    I would recommend the phone, it's an overall good experience and I think most people will enjoy it.
    I sincerely hope razer will consider including a free screen protector with the device, gorilla glass 3 make the use of one mandatory Sadly. Better material for the camera lens would be greatly appreciated as well.

    I left the camera out of the review, it's my understanding many updates are on the way that should improve it. I use open camera for now and it work decently.

    The lack of audio port was not an issue for me and I think the included dongle solve the issue.

    They use Blade laptops engineers to work with on designing Razer Phone thermal system. From Heatsink pipe, thermal paste inside it i think no other phones using similar design.

    I don’t own one but I spend 30 mins checking it out at ms store.

    Pro.

    -design, metal case looks cool. But case will ruin it.
    -speakers, loud
    -fast, 8gb of ram really helps

    Con.
    -dim screen. I turned it to max and still very dim.
    -camera, not on par with top of line phones.
    -os integration. Still buggy, even when I use YouTube.
    -lcd, not oled

    Don’t care for
    -120hz, i don’t notice a huge difference unless it is side my side with another phone
    -gorilla glass 3-always use a screen protector anyway

    100% agree they need to upgrade the glass on the camera. Have a buddy who has a major gash in the glass on the camera just form it being in his pocket.
    Razer phone V2 or free camera protector? Lol
