Razer Phone 2 vs Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Apple iPhone XS: Specs comparison
The Razer Phone 2 got official with top-shelf new hardware in tow, and is primed and ready to tackle all those who oppose its gaming superiority. Although the Razer Phone was ultimately a niche device, the Razer Phone 2 aims to be a much more mainstream device by improving a few key aspects, namely the camera and the performance.

In the end of the day, the Razer Phone 2 seems like a good deal for $799, but it will have to best the likes of the Galaxies and the iPhones for that spot in people's pockets. How does the Razer Phone 2 stack up against two very popular devices available on the shelves right now, though?

Of course, those would be the Galaxy S9 and the iPhone XS, which could very well pass as gaming devices if you throw some RGB lighting and gaming-like design. Let's see how these three troopers stack up.
