This is a well-known peripheral manufacturer in the PC industry, Razer, in fact, there have been game mobile phone products, but also accumulated a certain reputation. On October 11th, Razer launched a new second-generation Razer Phone 2. This new product retains all the features of the first generation of mobile phones, mainly to solve some of the shortcomings, and then enhance the performance and incorporate more new features.
Design: "Light Factory" is well-deserved
First of all, the Razer Phone 2 looks very much like the first generation, but it all extends from Nextbit Robin's mobile phone design, because Reiser acquired Nextbit in January 2017. The design of the whole machine still maintains the square shape of the traditional mobile phone, and does not follow the controversial Liu Haiping design, which may also be a feature that stands out from the crowd.
The front of the Razer Phone 2 is almost exactly the same as the first generation. The obvious change is the back of the fuselage with a glass design. The metal is more beautiful after being changed into glass, but the durability is definitely not as good as before. The dual camera on the back is now centered, and the Razer Razer logo is located below the camera. As a “light factory” in the PC world, Razer has finally added the Chroma Symphony RGB lighting effects that players expect to remain in the logo.
According to Razer, Chroma Symphony RGB lighting has always been a feature of Razer's “bone marrow” nature. This time it was introduced on the logo of the Razer Phone 2 phone, it also supports custom RGB RGB lighting effects, providing approximately 16.8 million colors. Options to switch between different colors, or choose one of the following lighting effects: Static, Breath, and Spectrum, which can be customized with the CHROMA Configurator application.
However, this Razer logo with Chroma Symphony RGB lighting is more than just a vase, you can turn the back logo into a large LED notification light that supports personalized notifications, allowing users to know when not to look at the screen. What notifications have come. However, if you don't want to be so fancy and want to save power, it's best to turn off the entire Chroma RGB lighting effect.
Support wireless charging and waterproof
The Razer Phone 2 retains many reasons, such as a large enough body to hold a 4000mAh battery, a unique vacuum cavity heat sink cooling system, and support for Dolby Atmos. Not too small stereo speakers, the speaker is said to have a loudness of 98 decibels, which is clearer, perhaps because it does not provide a 3.5mm audio jack, which is a pity.
However, Razer offers a 24-bit USB-C digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and has chosen to further enhance wireless charging and waterproofing.
The Razer Phone 2 offers Qi wireless charging, which is said to be very fast. This is due to the result of switching to the back of the glass, but like other mobile phone manufacturers, the Razer does not come standard with a wireless charging dock and needs to be purchased separately. At the same time, the new machine's body dustproof and waterproof performance is better than the previous generation, reaching IP67 level, Razer hopes that players can play games under various climatic conditions, and take the machine to the outdoors with confidence.
The best and smoothest 120Hz screen for gaming phones
As a game phone, the screen must be the key to the game's visual experience, so Razer insists that the Razer Phone 2 is equipped with a true 120Hz screen, and the touch sampling and display refresh rate are up to 120Hz, which is unique in the Android smartphone industry. Therefore, players using the Razer Phone 2 will be able to feel silky smooth touch and display speed, and enjoy perfect zero delay and accurate touch response in the game.
Flagship performance + efficient custom cooling
The performance aspect that players are most concerned about is arguably the most powerful of the current Android camp, because like most flagship models, the Razer Phone 2 is also equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (2.8GHz).processor, integrated with the Adreno 630 GPU. The running memory is also large enough, standard 8GB RAM, but the storage space is only 64GB by default, which is relatively low for gaming phones, but you can add more storage space through the microSD card.
Performance configuration The biggest selling point of the Razer Phone 2 is the “vacuum cavity soaking plate cooling system”. According to Razer, this is a new cooling system that spreads heat throughout the phone through a custom vacuum chamber soaking plate, which greatly increases heat dissipation surface area and reduces heat generation. This approach ensures better performance and stability than traditional cooling methods.
Better heat dissipation usually means less throttling and lower frequency, as well as a higher, more stable frame rate and a longer time smooth performance experience. Razer said that the performance of the new phone is 30% higher than the previous one. Whether you play multiple games at the same time or run multiple applications at the same time, you can maintain a high average frame rate and let you enjoy cooler and more comfortable. Experience.
On the battery side, the big battery with a standard 4000mAh is also mentioned in the front, which is comparable to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, evenHuaweiMate 20 will be released soon. Razer said that although the 120Hz display consumes less power, it has managed to optimize the battery life, and the wired charging supports Quick Charge 4+ fast charging, which can charge 50% of the battery capacity in 30 minutes.
The camera is better
The camera of the first generation Razer Phone could not be the main game. After all, the game phone is more about the game experience, so many players can't get a good photo experience, and even comment on it is very "bad" and "poor". This is not all because of the poor hardware of the dual-lens, but the lack of a great software experience, including poor imaging algorithms and the lack of basic features such as the option to let the user choose which camera to use.
The Razer Phone 2 ushered in a significant upgrade. This time, the dual camera is a dual 12 megapixel Sony sensor. The main camera is equipped with a f/1.75 aperture wide-angle lens. It supports OIS optical image stabilization. The sub camera is a telephoto lens with f/2.6 aperture. Dual PDAF phase detection autofocus is available, and an LED two-color flash is available. The front camera is 8 megapixels with an f/2.0 lens.
The key is that the standard camera app has been reinvented and can now be used more easily with one hand. Razer also promised to update its imaging software algorithms on a regular basis in the future.
