Update to Razer Phone includes improvements to the cameras, Netflix HDR and more
The Razer Phone has received an update weighing in at 249MB that makes it the best smartphone for Netflix-addicted streamers. The update brings Netflix HDR to the handset, which is the only phone in the world to support it. Combined with the phone's zippy refresh rate of 120Hz and the Dolby 5.1 audio playback for Netflix that is part of the update, the Razer Phone is a binge watcher's best mobile friend.

The update also helps fix the cameras on the phone, including the 12MP and 13MP dual camera setup on back (f/1.8 and f/.2.6, respectively). Make sure that you go to the Google Play Store to update the Razer Camera app after installing the update. The January Android Security patch is included with the new files, which reach the device OTA. The patch helps protect the phone from the Meltdown and Spectre flaws. While Android 7.1.1 is still running the show, Android 8.0 should be pushed out sometime this quarter.

When you receive the notification that the update has arrived on your Razer Phone, make sure that you're on a Wi-Fi network before downloading and installing it. You should also make sure that your battery is fully charged before starting the updating process. Because the update is being disseminated OTA, you might have to wait until it hits your Razer Phone. If you're impatient, you can try to manually coax out the update by going to Settings > About phone > System update.
