Too expensive. Once it goes down to $500 then it is a good choice.

The only thing that interests me is the screen with its high refresh rate... the battery is also nice. But after reading about the poor photo quality and screen brightness, it's lost a lot of its appeal.

I think right out of the gate Razor made a pretty good gaming phone 1st attempt. I love the placement of the finger scanner, screen size, 120 refresh rate, aspect ratio, no curved glass, the speakers, near stock android (hopefully they will be great with updates) and look of it with black metal body. If they address the screen brightness maybe go OLED and other issues (i hear buttons and build quality aren't consistent loose parts) for the Razor phone 2 I will buy.
