    Nope nothing since purchasing at all. I went on live chat and the guy said the LE was now delivering on the 28th but I should still have mine by the 17th however as soon as he said they use DPD I knew I wouldn't get it by Friday. DPD Class Northern Ireland as outside of the UK so even if a company labels a parcel for next day they automatically downgrade it to a 2 day service it's a bloody shambles so i'm expecting it no earlier than Monday but i'd hope i'm wrong.

    Tbh I don't mind if i'm waiting longer I'll see what actual on hand reviews are like and if the screen sucks as much as it seems i'll probably return it and get the essential.

    ok - only downsides are: so no sd card, only 3000mah battery, 4gb ram,

    Quite a few downsides to this razer phone that not many have mentioned:

    -no iris scanner
    -not waterproof at all
    -no bluetooth 5
    -Old Gorilla glass (3 i think)
    - brightness

    Iris scanner is just some added thing that isn't very useful. and tbh neither is SD card support imo since the essential comes witrh 128GB of storage by default. The Essential is a really nice phone and tbh I was gonna get it before the Razer one popped up cause it's just so nice.

    i use the iris scanner so often now on my S8 - just have to hit power button and look at the phone to unlock it - even in pitch black.

    however, on the S8 this is only more useful because the power button has no fingerprint scanner, and also because they have done away with the hard button on the front - therefore no fingerprint scanner on that.

    i also use the fingerprint scanner on the back a lot - at first i thought it would be annoying but now i realise its the perfect place for it...i pick up the phone now and my finger is actuall always in the right place
     
  7. Well, I am from outside of America and if my phone breaks, I am screwed. There's no service in my country, at least for Razer products.

    Just bought the thin case from Razer's site....sickens me to pay £10 shipping but as of now there are no cases par those horrible TPU ones on random sites.

    Already bought a Google Home Mini today....Gonna need to pick something up for the GF to keep myself in the good books lol

    Oo..you mean the link from the email didn't have the option to choose from the beginning? Cause I saw "Special Edition sold out" in red text. I was assuming it had the option in the beginning since I didn't see that email till now.

    I hope Razer can keep up with the demand. The staff really have their work cut out for them. I don't envy them that's for sure.
    I'm the same as you, a neat freak. I don't even like using the bathroom unless I've washed my hands first! :big_grin_: So I can understand your frustration over the grill. But it seems to me that a nice case could solve your problem. Something like that soon to be released Razer Phone Rugged Case or my personal favorite the Razer Phone Word Case.
    Believe me, if I didn't have budget constraints I would snap it up for that price in a second! As it stands, I hope to see it on sale someday on the Razerzone. All though it is weird. According to @kajira:
    But from my observation they have sales all the time. I guess its just a matter of words. Whether you call it a customer appreciation events and promotions or a sale the net effect is the same. Razer giving back to it's community and its users are getting discount prices on premium products.

    yes - absolutely logical assumption - but thats just tactics from Razer so you go looking for the limited edition..

    Yes I got notification from pre ordered on 2 November, today at 10:00 next half hour I checked it and yes in german it stated same “sold out”, was maybe to late.
    Yes for me no real Razer logo no buy;) So if the limited one never showed in Germany Store I’ll pass, maybe until V2 or if they made case with green logo to cover silver one, I’ve enough gadget with silver logo;)

    but they sell loads of stuff which just has the silver logo...- i have the leviathen and the logo is silver on the sub and the sounbar.

    In a funny way, the silver one may look better on a phone if you think about it - looks slicker and not so tacky on a phone may look childish if it is green.
