If you are addicted to gaming and play games for several hours a day then you are a gamer.

LMAO, you don't even know what are the worlds you write means....

btw: GPU is much more important than CPU for gaming. Nevertheless, apple CPU's are only better than snap845 in short use. In long use, they throttle and are actually worse...

Boldpixel, 15 Oct 2018Yes, I most definitely am. I just stated the order according to ... moreA CPU is more important than the GPU, so in that respect QSD 835, QSD 845, A10, A11, A12 in terms of sheer power. Not to mention iOS uses a native software language, far closer to the hardware than Android.

So yeah, you have a point. But on that bombshell, remember Nintendo is one of the powerhouses when it comes to Gaming...yet they are known to have underpowered hardware. So moar powar =/= more fun.

I made a comment earlier but it was totally ignored by everyone. The best gamer experience isn't on the Razer Phone 2, or even the (seemingly better) ASUS RoG Phone...it's on a Modded Sony Vita, maybe a (soon to be fully modded) Nintendo Switch, but actually on a GPD Win2.

@Werk, 15 Oct 2018Are you okay?Yes, I most definitely am. I just stated the order according to power. Snapdragon 845 is behind last year's apple chip. The appstore also has more supported games than android's googleplay.( how fortnite was handled for example)

Why bother? Fact is you're going to get a lot more out of a 120hz display if you have the latest gen CPU/GPU to push the higher fps. Snapdragon 845 is almost a year old now, it's old tech. The upcoming 7nm Snapdragon 855 will completely annihilate it. But if you wanna waste your money on something that'll be superseded in a few months, go right ahead.

Long story short, Razer create good quality products however their mobiles are trash, having previously owned a Razer Phone, I personally find an iPhone 7 can run games better and faster than the Razer phone and im talking about intensive games like PUBG on the highest phone settings, yes the refresh rate was good however the human eye barely notices this difference so personally the Razer phones are trash for gaming even through it is branded as a Gaming phone, phones in this category are purely gimmick related to reel in kids, around the same people that would use their mums credit card to buy their precious V-Bucks

Why will you need a gaming phone? Touch screen is the worse form of gaming controls.
Nothing beats controllers or keyboard mouse combo.

I tell you a better use case for this JUNK. Remember those boombox in the 1980s?? YEAH.. buy this JUNK.. put it on your shoulders.. and rock it!.. It got over 100 decibels!!

When Sony had the boxy design everyone was complaining like a spoiled brat about the design being old and having big bezels.
Razor completely stole Sony's design and everyone goes crazy saying the design is awesome and out of this world..
Are you people blind or what?
Also, how the hell is this a gaming phone when every gamer out there would never use a gadget that lacks the 3.5mm jack??!
No, this is NOT a gaming phone just because it has the 120Hz display.
Their marketing really got you sheeple.. And we wonder how crapple didi it..
I'd never buy this phone.
