Cloud gaming is not avaliable in my country.
1) Will this support button mapping so we can play games like COD Mobile and Apex Mobile with the controller? Plus other games that dont support gamepads other than Xbox or PS ones connected via bluetooth

2) Will the USB C support video out so i can use my NReal AR glasses as a screen?

3) Isnt this the same thing as sticking my high-end android phone into my razer kishi?

wont work mate - PUGB doesnt support gamepads - not sure if it supports xbox or ps pads connected via bluetooth but that kinda defeats the point of owning this

I still have my original Razer Edge Pro - first windows gaming tablet - why have they given this the same name it doesnt make sense - Razer Edge Pro was Windows - this is android - I still have the massive controller you insert the tablet into

so this is...interesting. It's basically the same power as a phone? But used for streaming games and primarily mobile games?

Its not very clear this is a phone that comes with the Kishi V2 right? It can still be used as a standlone phone i suppose, i couldn't find too many photos of it.


Pretty sure its an all in one dude. However it can still be used as a phone too. But who the hell is gonna carry this thing around as a phone...this is why its poitnless - just easier to buy a kishi and use your high end 120hz phone in the controller when you need it...thats my opinion anyway.

this is why i bought an Aya Neo - it runs windows so i can play AAA games on it - they run well enough because the resolution is low...plus you can turn settings down.

I can also use it to stream high end games via Moonlight (or xbox/ps servoces if you dont have a dedicated gaming PC to stream from

Do You reccomend it for games, like is the quality high at all? Do you think its worth the purchase?


Personally I dont thnk its worth ot - its just a really new Nvidia Shield Portable basically - not sure if you remember those...android gaming device with built-in controller - this is same thing but modern.

Like i said before - if the good games offered controller support then i would definiltely consider geting one - but they dont - games like COD mobile and Apex legends on android only let you use a ps or xbox gamepad - so you wont be able to play those games with the pad on this - so its basically useless - unless Razr provides some button mapping and joystick mapping overlay so you can map the buttons and the sticks to areas on the screen to play - similar to octopus - though octopus wont work as Activision banned it

you have absolutely no idea - every sim card has a phone number -you connect bluetooth headphones to it and you have a phone.

its ok to be wrong sometimes - dont worry


Again.. connecting bluetooth is a workaround. It doesn't magically turn it into a fully functioning phone. Here in the U.S. when you buy a NON-PHONE device that has a mobile 5g or 4g lte radio inside of it, you only get access to the data network. You're not issued a phone number for DATA ONLY Sim cards. They have different SIMs that are separate from the ones you get with a cellphone. When you buy a mobile hotspot, you can't simply just call the hotspot.. lol.

I know what you're saying. Yes, you can download a dialer and connect to bluetooth and "make calls".. after you jump through a bunch of hoops, that still does not make it a dedicated phone. You are making it into a "sort-of-phone". You have to use third party software to give you a virtual phone number. Skype and other VOIP-only clients are all you're going to be able to use. You're not going to have a physical phone number like you do with a cell phone. The calls have to be routed over the internet and forwarded to a PBX where it'll get routed and then the call will be made.. It's not going to work like a traditional phone would. It'll be unreliable and you'd be forced to be connected to bluetooth 24 / 7. Who wants to do that? It's ridiculous. You're better off buying an actual phone to make real phone calls if you're that concerned about having a phone with you. That's the point.

I also work in IT have been for the same amount of time. I have also worked for cellphone providers. Not that should matter, but I also know what I'm talking about friend. I'm not trying to argue with you but you're giving people the wrong impression with your information. The person asked if you could turn it into a phone, while you sort of can, it's not going to act like a phone and they should be informed of this.. I'm simply trying to explain that you need to do a lot more than just pop a sim card into the thing and expect calls. There are limitations, limitations you don't want to acknowledge.

I agreed with your first post about it being silly to use as a phone.. you're better off getting an actual phone and a kishi or getting the Razer Edge (wi-fi only) in addition to your phone. The 5G versions are a gimmick. 5G sucks in most places. The range is abysmal, it doesn't make sense to get the 5G model IMO. They tried that with the PS Vita and hardly nobody used the data connection. WiFi is so abundant anymore, it's better to just use that if you're wanting to play multiplayer games.

If you want to block me for something so petty as disagreeing with someone on a forum, then go right ahead. It's silly to get so worked up over something so trivial. You've had a condescending tone the entire time so it's not going to bother me any if I'm blocked. I'm just trying to share factual information without judgement. It's not a contest.
awesome
