    I'm heavily considering buying the Razer Phone.. The 120hz screen, the godly speakers, fast charging, they all sound great, but I'd like to try it out in my hands before really pulling the trigger. I know it's the first two weeks of launch, but is there any guarantee that Razer will have their phones in retail stores for customers to try out?

    Thanks for the information. I checked to see and the closest store from me is 27 miles away in New Jersey. Maybe if I'm ever down there for a hockey game I could check it out.

    Amazon has it.
    What other stores matter?

    True lol. But I’d like to actually try it out in my hand, see how it feels before I really make my purchase.

    That's what she said...

    Na, I agree, in the US we don't have the Three stores so I myself had to take a leap of faith. (ordering 2)
    You can tell it's got a few rough edges to smooth out, but the hardware is impressive. I myself couldn't buy another phone after trying the s8. I could only think to myself if this is a flagship phone, standards today are much lower. But if everybody scrutinizes the Razor phone and says I'll buy the next version and nobody buys the first version there will never be a second version. Heh....

    It definitely feels like a solid, not overly hefty, slab/slate.
    So it has that in common with other phones, you don't want to put a case on it because it feels so good, but at the same time I couldn't imagine carrying this around everyday without a protective case because I like it so much and don't want to break it.

    I am interested in getting one myself and wanted a hands on demo as well so I went to a Microsoft store in my local mall.

    I only held it for a few minutes, but I will say it is most definitely sleek and solid. It feels so compact regardless of being larger because it is packed with just so much hardware. The 120hz screen was so smooth and fluid I didn't want to stop scrolling. I didn't browse around the OS much because I wasn't there to look at Android. Looking over the phone, was just a clean experience, resembling that of the Razer Blade's machined metallic faces. I actually preferred that it was more square along the edges as it provided a better grip and feel. This phone was clearly designed to be held.

    Similar to what @Kungpaoshizi said, they designed it so well that you don't need a case, but you will most definitely want one for preservation.

    Finally I did check out the camera. Just pulling up the camera, opened a crystal clear window. I didn't try any zooming, but I did attempt to snap a picture. It was already set to HDR and it took a good 3-5 seconds to save. I know that updates and patches are coming, as well as the android update, over the next few months, but aside from that I still fell in love with it.

    I'm hoping to pick it up the beginning of next year, allowing plenty of time for the majority of any issues to come to light so that I can better make a decision. As it stands right now though, I'm going to buy this phone.
