    Yeah but i don't want to go outside with a lot of stuff on me. Just my wallet, my keys, my Hammerhead and my phone. Nothing else.

    I love the specs. I love the price. Can't wait to go to the Microsoft store to test this out. Is this the only way to get in the US?

    Great specs it seems, And the price is great for the stuff and power that phone is putting in from what I can tell. I wish it was more available in my province since there are no Microsoft stores here, Maybe in the future it will come more widespread. Just going off that the site went down almost right after the pre order announcement, Seems like there may be a bit of a demand for it.

    The dongle can fit in your hammerhead pouch, or just plug it on the your HH it’s not too big for pocket.

    For me the most amazing part was the form factor. i expected a way bigger phone for that spec.

    The idea of it is great, 120Hz sounds great to have but i just got a phone this year so i don't see myself upgrading to this, if they make more models in the future that have the same basic idea as this one i might upgrade to a Razer phone, and as someone already has mentioned, no headphone jack kills it for me, i'm not about that dongle life even if it includes a DAC, also i'm glad they didn't do a Chroma logo, no matter how small it is, it's still battery life being wasted and even with such a huge battery it's still very redundant to add

    Does anyone know if there's going to be a CDMA version? I'm on Verizon - I'd switch from the S8+ in a heartbeat.

    It looks really cool but I just never really understood gaming on android...
     
  15. I am okay with the price.
    Not as happy with the hard edges. It's looks well, I am not sure, but those edges are a turn off for me.
    Kinda love the specs
    Cautious as I was first in line with the Nabu wearable and it let me down down down.
    So this is the first phone for them.... nervous but happy if they blast through this market, been considerating a one plus off and on now for a little while.
    Current Galaxy user.
    Again for me Cautious...

    I don't even want it for gaming. The screen is awesome, the battery is huge, it has dual speakers on the front (that the reviews all say are amazing) and most importantly, a METAL case. I work 24 hour shifts on an ambulance, I'm hard on phones both physically any energy wise. This thing is perfect for me.

    The phone is absolutely insane. First thing is that's the most ram I've ever seen on a phone. That laptops that our school provide (macbook airs) only have 4gbs of ram. This has 8 and it's a phone. It also look visually stunning in my opinion.

    Things I really like:
    Insane battery life! something that is just a simple quality of life improvement that will go so far for people constantly on the go like me.

    Front facing speakers is always the way to go! Should have great audio quality!

    High memory + expandability! SD slots FTW!

    Aluminum Chassis...... I break things ok....... The Aluminum combined with the Gorilla Glass makes it seem like this will be a really robust device, and it should feel great in your hands too.

    Things I don't like:
    No headphone jack really pisses me off. There is a USB C to 3.5 adapter that comes with the phone. However, as someone who uses hammerheads in their mobile phone DAILY in a myriad of situations, be it working out at the gym, watching youtube in a waiting room somewhere, listening to music in a coffee shop wile working on my blade, listening to music at home while other people are in the house, etcetera, having one extra thing to have to worry about carrying around sucks. It is just one extra thing I have to make sure I have around, instead of just being able to plug in my headphones and it just work....... Really really annoys me that there is no headphone jack. Front facing speakers are great, but alot of the time I use headphones out of consideration for other people nearby. And what if I lose the dongle? How much will it cost to replace? Another question that comes to mind is the structural integrity of the dongle, how robust will the adapter itself be? How will it respond to tension and stress on the connectors when its bouncing around in my pocket at the gym, or my laptop bag, or if I set it down the wrong way or accidentally place something over it? It is just one extra step, and one extra potential point of failure that is completely unnecessary.


    Frankly I couldn't care less about all the mobile gaming stuff. Makes sense for a gaming company to prioritize that, but I don't really play games on my phone. That is what a Blade is for. The screen sure is pretty. I do watch alot of youtube videos on my phone. But overall the AMAZING battery life and high quality construction will hopefully outweigh the no headphone jack issue once the phone actually comes out. I would love to ditch my Samsung and finally have a phone without AT&T and Samsung bloatware, that is expandable, and that doesn't slow down dramatically after 6 months.

    Besides the battery and the screen it’s nothing special. And there is nothing GAMER about it. But, it’s priced well. So it’s not a bad phone if it tickles your fancy.

    Razer normally tries to do something that no one else does. Like back when they made that gaming windows tablet. That is something I was expecting from Razer. Even Motorola makes a control case for there Moto Z 2. And it costs almost the same as the Razer phone at $720. So that’s honestly more of a gamer phone than this.

    I won’t be buying one. I’d rather buy a Note 8 or iPhone X. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_:
