    IMO razer should not continue with the phone market. Its too hard to compete against the other mobile tech giants with probably better software development than razer.

    In this niche market, the main competitor to the Razer Phone is really just the ROG Phone. Those who aren't interested in gaming phones are likely to just buy the products from mobile tech giant.

    They also did a great job with Razer Phone 2 and it was considered by many to be the most improved phone when compared to its predecessor. One can only wonder how much they can improve with the Razer Phone 3.

    When it came to software, Razer did flop when it came to timely updates on the Razer Phone 1 so that makes upcoming phones a bit sketchy.

    But either way, the Razer Phone lineup fulfilled what it was meant to do and that was to create a category of phones meant for the gaming audience. The only thing that does bother me is the lack of understanding that most gamers, and audiophiles for that matter, prefer wired headphones since it brings the best audio quality.

    Verstehe ich das richtig, das nun doch kein Razer Phone 3 kommt? Anfang des Jahres konnte man lesen, das die Sparte nicht weiter geführt wird, dann vor einigen Wochen wieder, das ein Phone 3 kommt. Gibt es den hier zu schon Neuigkeiten?
    Hätte mir gerne das Phone 3 gekauft, oder gegen mein S10 Plus getauscht. Aber ein Phone 2 macht Hardwaremässig keinen Sinn mehr.

    Do I understand correctly that no Razer Phone 3 is coming? At the beginning of the year you could read that the division is not being continued, then again a few weeks ago, that a Phone 3 is coming. Is there any news here?
    Would have liked to buy the Phone 3 or exchange it for my S10 Plus. But a Phone 2 no longer makes any sense in terms of hardware.

    They stopped working on the mobile project because there aren't hardware to deliver something new and innovative. Razer don't won't to be the company that presents every year a new phone phone just to let the kids say they have the newest, this role goes to apple.

    As i mentioned some posts before i think they will focus on project linda with their new phone 3.

    And just to compare the hardware of the phones is not the key. It looks like the Razer Phone is the only one that really gives you the power of it.

    Ja das hatte ich befürchtet. Nur schade drum. Design und Hardware haben wirklich was her gemacht. Würde mich dennoch freuen, wenn sie es nicht auf Eis legen, sondern da was schönes zaubern könnten.

    Yes, I feared that. Just a pity. Design and hardware really did something. I would still be happy if they couldn't put it on ice, but conjure up something beautiful.

    If only Razer enabled LDAC and AptX bluetooth codecs in Pie... I would be a happy man; would forget about missing videocalls (ViLTE). I had both in LG G6, still missing it for the two features...
    And the 2x camera bisbehaving when switched to 16:9 frame.

    there are LDAC and aptX codecs (on the Razer Phone 2). You can force their settings in the developer options if they don't trigger automaticly. But don't forget that their need to be two devices to let them work :)

    those hi quality codecs under the developer options are just place holder and those codecs are not available in RP2.Razer does not have aptx licence which requires a fee to quallcom. they also did not enrolled in LDAC certification program. it will default automatically to sbc.untill next update only bluetooth codec supported by RP2 is SBC which is useless.almost as useless as the information that you provided.

    Oh, i'm sorry for not testing my mentionend options. I thought they where accessible.

    But hey, no reason to get salty.
    As i saw that you dreamed about the most useless function (videocalls) on a razer phone and were not able to download something like skype i thought you were just a kid :D. Have you noticed that Google Duo could help you and that it is allready installed?

    I am not sure what you expect from bluetooth, but just the idea to use it for (quallity) music instead of a cable is in most cases just stupid. And only this option will not make your little bluetooth box into a concert hall.
    But.. what is with your music file, is it really a lossless high quallity file? I am sure it is not because if it were such a file you had a real sound system which noone would use with bluetooth.

    Bluetooth is not made for music, it is made to be able to transfer data wireless.

    You realize that Skype is a 3rd party disclosure and EULA, kid? To minimize your trust service (and keep data privacy breaches to minimum), always demand native solutions. Like ViLTE. Also, how do you call SIP video conferences with Skype and OTT I wonder? I do not need Google or Microsoft or MOSSAD or KGB where I can do with only my cellular provider.

    On the TIDAL HiFi music via LDAC and SONY MDR-1000X, i prefer to discuss the taste of mussels with those who tried them. A guy at work who thinked like you quickly changed his mind once I let him take a listen.
    RP2 is not made for music (yet?) - not high-quality Bluetooth codecs I have enjoyed before RP2.

    Oh Mr. IT Expert, this is of course a reason that you get watched by organisations they don't care of you. But yes, all of them selling your data for hobby analyst just to get money.
    Have you ever thought about the basic android aystem? it comes from google. After you have installed the GApps (which are installed on all non-cracked android systems) they start analyzing everything you do. Google don't need more than theese apps which means if you were really interessted in hiding your life for america you should install a custom OS and stop using the Google Play Store.

    Back to bluetooth. Have you ever wondered that it opereates wireless which means that it needs some kind of radio waves? There are many people who think that every kind of radio waves could be harmful to a body.
    This is something you should think about instead of thinking that anybody cares your life.
