You can now express your interest for the Razer Phone in the US

You can now express your interest for the Razer Phone in the US and the company will notify you as soon as it's available to purchase online on its store.

After being announced some two weeks ago, the first phone with a 120Hz display is now available for $699.99 with a year's worth of warranty. Aside from the ultra-smooth display, the phone also comes with rather intriguing other specs, like 8GB of RAM, a hefty 4,000mAh battery at the rear, stereo speakers, and a bundled Hi-Fi DAC that hooks up into the USB Type-C port (yeah, no headphone jack here).

You can also get a $39.99 Razer-themed rugged case for the phone which should protect it against accidental fall damage quite nicely, and if you really feel like it, you can also snatch a $99.99 Razer Hammerhead BT headset.

Considering the bad reviews on this phone, it'll probably be a flop like the Essentials. It seems so good on paper though.

I love my essential phone. They said the camera was bad but it looks good to me.

What bad reviews are you referring to? Everybody I have been reading and watching gives it a major thumbs up. Some professional reviews, and some not. Both are overwhelmingly positive, which surprised me.

Android Central ripped the camera apart in their review. Though to be fair, I don't think anyone is buying this device for the camera.

That is a "weaker" area to this phone compared to other flagships, but today's views on these phone cameras are skewed. When you do a side by side one looks "worse" than others, but rarely do any look BAD. The camera on this phone is actually very good and was a highlight in Razers own presentation. It just isn't AS good as some of the others. People who view these things for a living get this eagle eye for any defect (they have to to do their job), but for the average person and in the wild nobody can really tell. Especially since they just go on facebook or similar. You can compare TVs in the store all day and say one looks terrible when by another one of a higher class. But take it home away from the rest and unless you have a trained eye all that bad goes away. I get tired of hearing how one camera is terrible compared to others. My wife uses a moto z2 force which doesn't get the best reviews. She loves that phone, loves the moto mods, and has taken some photos of our kids that actually blew me away. I wanted to have them framed. I Never got that impression from a pixel phone or a nexus 6p that we had before it. Blah...people get too picky and make you think you have a low budget phone just cause it isn't the best. Get one and enjoy! On that note, I'd love to have one of these but I'm not paying 800 for a phone. :)

I've had this same thought for years. Everyone dumps on Motos cameras but my first few phones didn't even HAVE a camera. Then when it finally did I was so excited to have a 1.3 MP that was so grainy and blurry it was almost pointless. It didn't take very long for cell phones to progress to the point that they are better than point and shoots so I never even had a dedicated camera. I'd rather use the one that's always in my pocket. I'll take any camera phone that's out there today vs the ones we had to put up with 12 years ago...

The reviews I've ready mainly highlighted the very dim display, terrible camera and below average battery life (considering the 4,000 mAh battery, web browsing comes close to 6 hrs). Even in the gaming department and the high refresh rate it didn't fare better.

There's a number of positive reviews about this phone so I think your best bet is to get some hands-on experience and judge for yourself.

So from what I can tell, the only notable negative is the average camera experience? To be fair unless you view the pics at 100% or print them you won't really notice much.

No, there have been reports of a dim screen and terrible battery life.

Why would anyone buy a phone that's intended for beta testers? I mean come on people, its a first phone from a company that never made a phone. Ye I know they bought that small company that produced a single s**tty phone but that's about it, Never be a beta tester for anyone with your own money.

This phone seems like a winner to me. I doubt the cameras are as bad as they are saying. This phone does a lot of things right and is priced pretty well at $699.

I tried to find it earlier but I swear someone said it's the s7 edge camera. First video I find about the s7 camera, guy refers to it as 'best camera on the market!!' lol

When I hit the link and look through Razer's store, it doesn't look like the phone is available for purchase. Maybe this was a bit early?

Mine are otw! :D It was down to this or the pixel 2 xl. Others had negatives in each their own way, this device at least has what I desire. :)

Camera is trash for a $700 phone, screen is supposed to be very poor outdoors. battery life is terrible and a just released high end phone shipping shipping with nougat is quite poor. So no from me.
