Being Razer’s first ever smartphone which is specifically designed for gamers, but is also great for daily use. So, whether if you’re a gamer or not, the Razer phone Singapore is still a solid option based on its performance and display.
Seamless gameplay experience
There is no doubt that a gaming brand would make a smartphone for gamers. With the gorgeous Sharp IGZO 5.7 inch QHD (1440 x 2560) IPS edge-to-edge, the screen offers vibrant, rich colours with brilliant detailing. Another unique feature of the Razer smartphone is its ability to refresh at rates as 120Hz especially for a globally available device, it is rarely unheard of. Fortunately, this feature works great even if you’re not a gamer. The higher-than-usual refresh rate allows for a more smooth and natural motion of sifting through apps or browsing long webpages. On top of that, you can easily customize game booster settings to ideally fine tune your gaming setting for each individual game according to the CPU speed, frame rate, and resolution. Alternatively, if the performance is your top priority when it comes to gaming, you can turn all specs to maximum by selecting “Performance” from the options at the top menu.
Best speakers on a smartphone
The two front-facing speakers that is displayed on the top and bottom of the device will be the best speakers you’ve heard on a smartphone. Don’t bother hooking it up to a Bluetooth speaker, because each speaker has its own amplifier. Also, the Dolby Atmos adapts the premier cinema sound experience for reproduction over built-in speakers and there’s hardly any distortion or crackling even when audio is played at high volumes.
Long-lasting phone battery
As a smartphone that centres around gaming, having a long-lasting battery is an important aspect. Thankfully, the 4,000 mAh battery never disappoints and can easily last a day and a half between charges even with several intense gaming sessions. The phone tends to get a little hot particularly if you’re playing action-intensive games, but will eventually cool down after a while. Equipped with a Qualcomm QuickCharge technology, charge it up in just under an hour.
Multiple fingerprint scanner
Most smartphones will have their fingerprint scanner on the home button or at the back, but the Razer phone has it on the side. With its non-standard placement, the decision to utilise which finger to unlock the phone is important. Reviewers have recommended to utilise the left index finger as it easily drapes over the left side of the phone.
With the other amazing features, don’t expect a spectacular camera on the Razer smartphone. Other than the ability to toggle flash, HDR, and a few extra features here and there, there’s actually not much you can do with this camera as it is very basic to say the least. Taking photos in HDR will delay the camera slightly. Nevertheless, you can swiftly launch the camera by double-pressing the power key, while take photos in burst mode holding down the shutter button.
