That definitely does seem to be the case with the Razer Phone, the smartphone by gamers for gamers that has just turned into a smartphone for video buffs as well. That’s thanks to the addition of support not just for Netflix’s HDR content but, at the same time, Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 audio as well.

Philips Hue, Razer Chroma turn gaming rooms into colorful warzones

It might break the stereotype, but gamers love colors. No, not the painterly colors of graphics artists but the neon glow of their gaming rigs, from keyboards to mice to cases. Depending on their patience and expertise, they can even color code those lights to match their game and mood. But why stop at lighting up accessories? With today’s smart lighting systems, you can even light up your room in the same way. And that is exactly what Philips and Razer have done with its first partnership that puts the Hue and the Chroma together into a dazzling and dizzying light show for gamers.

Razer Phone Review : Real Mobile Courage

Razer Phone Review : Real Mobile Courage

The first Razer Phone clearly wasn't designed to take on the competition with bright, flashy colors. Razer didn't make their first phone with curved edges, and it didn't include a front-facing 3D face-sensor setup for animated emoji messages. Instead, Razer took the top-notch knowhow of the team at formerly-NextBit and combined it with their own understanding of their massive cult of modern gamers. With some top-level branding and a genuinely nice box to package it all up, the Razer Phone is like no other company's "first try" I've ever experienced.

Razer Phone Unboxing: Devil’s in the Details

Inside the box sent to me for a SlashGear review is the Razer Phone - but more than that, it's a presentation of a phone worthy of the best on the market. It's almost as if Razer is trying to tell the end user that they've bought into a device that's more than just the Android phone they find at the top of this box. Inside is the work of a team of engineers that are obviously proud of the work they've done.

Razer Phone is going to be tough to repair

Razer Phone is going to be tough to repair

The Razer Phone isn’t exactly the most beautiful phone in the market this year, but they do say that beauty is only skin deep. In this case, however, what’s true on the outside might be true on the inside as well. After mostly survive JerryRigEverything’s trinity of durability tests, the Razer Phone is now subjected to a teardown. And while it does survive it as well, it wasn’t the smoothest ride either.

Razer Phone durability does a bit better than its predecessor

Razer Phone durability does a bit better than its predecessor

Razer didn’t actually make a new smartphone from scratch. It had acquired Nextbit, who made the Nextbit Robin, and whose design language eventually ended up in the Razer Phone as well. But as much as the Robin was considered a breath of fresh air in a crowd of clones, it fared very poorly under the mighty hands of JerryRigEverything. With the Razer Phone looking a lot like the Nexbit Robin, one might ask whether it is just as fragile. Happily, the answer is “no”, but with some caveats.

Larger Razer Phone teased by CEO amid DAC talk

Razer Phone camera promised to improve with software updates

Razer Phone camera promised to improve with software updates

There seems to be a trend among smaller smartphone makers these days. Launch a phone with a decent, or in Essential’s case, bad, camera experience and just promise improvements to come via software updates in the near or distant future. That was basically what happened to the Essential PH-1, which launched to a rather rocky start, and is now being applied to the Razer Phone as well. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan took to Facebook to outline what lies ahead for the camera of a smartphone that is mostly geared towards gaming and entertainment consumption rather than creation.
