The company Razer is popularly associated with making laptops, peripherals and accessories aimed towards the gamer community. It was anticipated for some time that they were looking at making there foray into the Smartphone market as was evident by their purchase of the Nextbit, the creators of the infamous Robin smartphone. Still the company has come out of its comfort zone and launched a new gaming smartphone.
The Razer phone is the first smartphone manufactured, marketed and sold by the company. If you would look at the overall phone, resemblance to the Robin are quite uncanny.
What would leave you stunned are the smartphones tank like built and that 120 Hz IGZO Panel. Although Razer is marketing this smartphone towards the gaming community. It’s going to go down well with anyone looking for a sturdy smartphone, with luxurious specs, a luscious display and a front firing pair of speakers that would definitely reduce if not completely make earphones unnecessary in a quite room.

The offered specs are decent and can easily go toe to toe with any top tier smartphone.
The new phone by Razer has stereo front-facing speakers. The THX certified DAC offers high quality sound quality. The smartphone is exclusively powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor and 8 GB of Ram and a stock Android Nougat experience and a commitment for future Android O update.

One thing to note you are going to get bezels around the phone’s display and I mean really big ones.
