"Con no headphone Jack" You won't find this as a con in any iPhone's reviews in this site

That ship has sailed. It was a con for the iPhone 7, but nothing afterward. It's a con for any Android phone though, because competing Androids still have one. Are people cross-shopping Razer and Apple though? Really?

You make a very good point.

agree. In the world of Android, people want to know. In apple, they already know and it's said and done.

For that cons it should get 5-6 Essential seemed like better thought of phone and it got 4, Razer relies on gimmicks while lacking in important departments

Still don't get it! Phonearena does full battery and display tests for every phone out there except for the huawei mate 10 pro! Imo that's the best phone of 2017, and all we got there was a lousy half-baked review ! What's wrong with Phonearena??

Mate10Pro's battery life is great enough to be included in this list :Dhttps://www.gsmarena.com/top_10_phones_2017_by_battery_life-news-28521.php (btw, there's only 2 flagships on that listm the other one is from samsung)

For me. That 4th con is a deal breaker for me. No waterproofing means it can be easily damage. Especially for the internal components.

Not necessarily. No phone is truly waterproof they are water resistant.

"Sharp beat them to the punch a few months back with the launch of the 120Hz Aquos R phone" I am sorry PA, but that is an incorrect fact. SHARP has been releasing 120Hz phones since 2015, from their very first 120Hz model: SH-01H/502SH. Fun fact: SHARP is the supplier for 120Hz screens for iPad Pro & RAZER. Fun fact 2:

Camera performance is horrible. Thanks to reviewer, he actually took time and effort to showcase camera capabilities. Not like the guy who reviewed Essential phone ( predominantly taking photographs of his cat indoors) .

I think Razer has a solid first effort. For version 2 they need a custom soc, 18:9 display, keep all the good stuff like the 120hz screen, big battery, clean design. Add wireless charging and ip67 water resistance and a better camera and it will be perfect.
