1. That Display Tho
The show on this smartphone is 5.7-inches diagonally with 2K decision – AKA 1440p, similar to most different top-level smartphones available on the market in the present day. Instead of OLED, the likes of that are used on the Galaxy S8 and Note eight in addition to the Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone X. Instead, Razer Phone makes use of an LCD.
Razer makes use of an LCD to keep away from ghosting. When a show operates at 120Hz, there’s an actual chance of ghost photos showing on the show when an OLED show lights up. The LCD on the Razer Phone doesn’t seem to have that downside.
2. Frame Rate Madness
As this smartphone is 120Hz-capable, cellular video games with out framerate limits are about to get an entire lot extra superior. Some of the video games on the Google Play app retailer that’ll profit from this skill to jam extra frames right into a smaller period of time embody: Titanfall: Assault, Tekken, and Final Fantasy XV.

For these of you that by no means hearken to music via your smartphone’s headphone jack, this received’t matter. Razer’s headphone audio right here is offered by a USB-C converter because it doesn’t have a headphone jack, thoughts you. Razer says that the telephone’s DAC is THX licensed – which we would definitely hope, since they personal THX.
These two front-facing Dolby ATMOS (stereo) audio system have twin amplifiers as effectively. They’re huge time – and so they’re a welcome change to the large lack of front-facing audio system available on the market in the present day. Razer isn’t the primary to do it, however proper now it will appear they’re about to do it finest. Once this gadget is out, I like to recommend you’ve a peek on the Archive.org badortment of 24-bit music – simply as long as you obtain the information as FLAC.
