    As the title says, I want to not just game via the phone, but actually use my PC and use the phone as my 120hz monitor. The application is a super tight spot that needs a small screen, and I thought this would be great. I've seen USB-C to displayport/hdmi converters, but those usually work in the opposite way of sending the phone info to a monitor, not a PC's info to the phone display.

    Thanks for any help or point in the direction of software that provides this capability.

    This isn't a feature built into Android nor the phone and would most likely require third-party apps to work. Will be moving this to the Mobile boards, maybe the community can help you out.

    As a word of precaution though, rooting will be considered as unauthorized modification and will void your RP1's warranty.

    I haven't looked into in on Android yet, but I know that Apple/iPad have similar capabilities, and that's with a third-party app and the iPad Lightining-USB A cable.

    Do a quick google search and you might find some answers and options that could utilize a USB C - USB A cable. There probably wouldn't be an issue about information flow direction, since you can DEFINITELY use such a cable to transfer files and other such data to the phone from a computer.

    As far as the full 120Hz refresh rate, though, that might be a different story. It could be dependent on whatever the third-party software developer allows for.

    Good luck, and happy hunting!

    Yeah, so most of those links are to software that maxes out at 60Hz FHD. I'm definitely going to keep my eyes open for a 120Hz answer.

    Warranty?! Lol, I think the least of us Razer 1 owners have to worry about is a warranty on a device sitting on last July's security patch.

    You made me laugh about warranty our RP1's are open to any recent discovered threats!
