The Razer Phone is now available for purchase in the US


A few days ago Razer opened pre-registrations for its first smartphone so that customers could get notifications as soon as it would become available for purchase. If you haven't expressed your interest in the device by now, you'll be pleased to know that the Razer Phone is now available for purchase in the United States.

For the time being, you can only get it via Razer's online store, but at some point, it will arrive at Microsoft brick and mortar stores. As previously announced, the Razer Phone can be had for $699, which isn't too high of a price considering its specs.

While the Razer Phone is not necessarily the first smartphone aimed at “hardcore gamers,” it surely is the first phone to pack a 120Hz display. The rest of the Razer Phone's specs are no less impressive either: 8GB RAM, 4,000 mAh battery, a dedicated Hi-Fi DAC and stereo speakers.

If you plan on getting it right now, Razer offers for a limited time free shipping to the United States for all orders over $49. Also, you'll be getting a 1-year limited warranty. Keep in mind that the Special Edition is not yet available, so the standard model will have to do for now.

$699? Nah, the price needs to be $599 tops if they hope to sell more than a couple dozen of these niche Razor phones.

The phone could be free and you would ask the manufacturer to PAY YOU in order to buy it. $699 is competitively priced and it is a niche product. The price is perfectly acceptable and I'm actually shocked it doesn't cost more considering how much you have to shell out for their laptops.

It maybe a 4000mah battery but it has one of the worst SoT of any phone, probably the 120hz screen draining it fast and poor optimisation. Also screen is reported to be terrible outdoors, and to top it off a really poor camera. I dont think i would buy it at any price.

Battery life is average, not atrocious. Don't be dramatic. It's neither below or above average.

I like this phone and will get it next year when it pulls a robin and gets slashed in price. Maybe 300

Price is not right. If it is $500-$600, or inline with Essential phone and OP5T they'd have a chance. Nobody buys a smartphone for gaming alone.

You obviously fail to realize that Razer makes gaming products and this phone's primary purpose is to offer a better gaming experience than other devices.

Was interested, but saw the reviews on YouTube about how it has a crappy camera, so I'll skip it.

I'm honestly shocked at the ignorance in everyone's comments. This wasn't touted as a camera phone. The camera is perfectly normal for a phone that is supposed to be for gaming, not for photography. Razer doesn't make cameras, they don't specialize in camera technology, you're looking in the wrong place.

Honestly, Razer rarely releases a product, from accessories like their Siren microphone and keyboards, to their computers and enhanced hardware like the Core external gpu, and any competitors match in performance or price. Thats why the fan base is consistently growing and brand loyalty is strong. It's a matter of knowing you can count on the products, and company as a whole. Razer once again entered a new market niche with a product that is not matched in performance by any smartphone manufacturers. The exception being Samsung due to active digitizing stylus with s-pen, & the Dex features. But even though I have seen a constant level of user benefits they didn't expect from an active stylus, it remains a niche market. The I don't recall if Razer is going to place an upgraded A. I. Like Bixby 2.0, but this is the company that creates software that enhances performance of Razer devices, & functions with non Razer systems so i dont imagine they won't be releasing much to come. Just like the Core external gpu, it had competition from MSI, & Alienware (except Razer had a the least intrusive design & they said from announcement they where not going to make it exclusive to Razer systems, other manufacturers could utilize it as long as it had usb-c/thunderbolt 3 port.) So I am really excited finally arrived at the smartphone party, and a little disappointed that it will not have Dex like capabilities with the power this has, but I may be wrong or maybe it's planning to follow up with one. From a pc gaming giant it was expected. I wish i knew if they have the hardware go use an active stylus or not, but I love having the precision of an active stylus, it is a unmatched companion accessory for developing graphic interfaces, software, or even taking notes. The ability to keep even quick messages consolidated and organized with Evernote or Windows Programs is vastly underutilized, once you get it and become comfortable with it, it's a sh#+ show to not have. All personal opinion, but my view on Razer is as a fan from the beginning, by gamers for gamers will forever be true, but the company has the potential to market to business clients, many who where using Razer for gaming in the past, still enjoy gaming when there is time, but the power is great for multi industry use. The fact of having my work device also my gaming rig, I could make me biased. One device to rule them all, a computer made as rugged as the environment of Mordor. (sorry bad LOTR metaphor.) So excited about this and what's to come, but as a DJ and developer who has the need for audio engineering, your computers come with FL studio one of oldest DAW software manufacturers, and why have we not been blessed with a standalone 4 channel Razer mixer, beatpad, or other music hardware? Please Razer its been my Christmas wish for years, bring the lighting or chroma.

Is the above post from a Razer employee or what? My personal experience of Razer products has been terrible, always breaking not long after the warranty has expired, this goes for keyboards and mice. I would never buy their pc peripherals ever again.
