    It's spreading already. Soon it will be in more and more places.

    Did you reboot it see if it does have the reboot screen? May pop into a store on the way home see if we have any on display. How's it look? I know why companies lock them down but at least let us pick them up.

    It definitely does. I just wanted to point out that, reviewers are giving mixed results.
    I just don't want to invest in something I'm going to want to return. The biggest selling point for me, that I'm most excited about, is the battery life. I honestly don't think I'd have it on 120Hz, because it's not that serious to me to use that for common task. I think I would dial it back to 90Hz or 60Hz, and scale it back to 1080p for the display, and allow probably 120Hz for games, but still, I'm unsure with what I've read.

    The guy in store wanted to go to the back and grab one - he wanted me to hear the sound - said it wad outstanding.

    I didn't reboot u know! Didnt think of it. Really not too bothered about the 3 logo on startup. Never shut my phones down..

    Can you elaborate on negatives u have heard?

    Yeah, that's good to know. I just kind of hate going through the return process. I try to avoid it at all cost.

    @SeaGreenventureradio833 Just click on the Green, italicized, bold text. Those are 4 different links to reviews talking about the battery life. It talks about other aspects of the phone too.

    Long story short, Tom's Guide pretty much points out the bad side of what I've heard:
    • Screen could be brighter
    • Cameras a step behind the competition
    • Below-average battery life

    But I've heard the opposite of other reviewers. Which is why I mentioned, I've gotten mixed reviews.

    Did they actually have stock out the back ready to be sold??

    As for people talking about battery live this is one thing id love people to stop talking about...everyone uses their phone differently sure you may be able to give a certain benchmark but if anyone is expecting to use 120Hz all the time and not have a battery drop in some way then you're fooling yourself.

    he pointed to the back when he asked me - but i just think they had the display one - then maybe a loose one at the back to play with...lucky bastards lol

    yeah - i would turn it up to 120 when gaming or using nvidia gamestream but prob leave it on 90 normal use.

    Just saw the device in my local store it does have the 3 logo on boot after the razer one that 120Hz is the real deal holy shit it's smooth.

    Also they're selling it for 649.99 in-store wtf is going in with these prices

    No pounds of course it's 649.99 in store 595 online both for Three and 699 on Razer's website :/

    Weird how the LE green logo one is still available :S something tells me these aren't limited to 1,337 units

    Um Three sell it outright too.

    Just make it more, ignore 1337, change it to 13377;) and put on EU Razer store at launch day and you’ll get my money next Friday.
    Press on website.

    well - i manged to pre-order one - so now i am worried -

    - either the figure is the truth - which means i will probably have to wait until xmas 18 before i receive mine

    or

    - the figure is lies and i will get mine delivered band new, to my house, on the 17th

    i truly hope its the latter.

    i may even purchase one from razer on the 17th anyway - just to be on the safe side - lol - even though it wont be LE at least i have it..then if the green emblem one does come, i can surely sell the silver one

    Or the figure is right and the phone isn't as popular as we though which is very much possible.

    Also got confirmation from a Razer phone Dev that factory images will remove the three boot animation so guess I won't be setting up android pay or anything on it till I can do that lol.

    I wonder which phone ports of PC games will Razer have on its phone?
