Design

The Razer Phone 2 retains the same aluminum frame, glass front covering, and box/rectangular brick building form of its predecessor. But this time, the Razer Phone 2 looks more visually appealing and built with unique design features meant to give it off as a gaming phone at first sight. The rear is now made of glass to allow the Razer Phone 2 charge wirelessly. To add, the Razer Chroma Logo on the rear is now RGB illuminated and supports breathing, spectrum, and static color profiles. The three-headed snake logo on the rear logo also doubles as a notification light and can also be customized to stay on at all time or only when the screen is active.

As an icing on the cake, the Razer Phone 2 now comes with IP67 certification which makes it resistant to water and dust, just like Xiaomi’s Black Shark 2. The top and bottom bezels of the device are occupied by the dual front-facing stereo speakers for loud, crisp, and balanced sound production.

Display

The Razer Phone 2 sports the same screen size in the same 16:9 aspect ratio as its predecessor but Razer has cranked up the brightness from 380 nits to 580 nits for improved visibility during outdoor usage. The 5.7-inch LCD display has a 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution and carries Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5. The 120Hz refresh rate of the display will also allow for smoother gaming and fluid usage when running basic operations on the device.

Processor and Storage

Powering the Razer Phone 2 is the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip on the first Razer Phone. Clock speed has been increased to max at 2.8GHz for faster gaming and processing. Handling graphics is the Adreno 630 GPU and the Android Oreo v8.1 is the out-of-the-box operating system. Razer , however, says the gaming flagship phone can be upgraded to the latest Android 9 Pie.

About storage, the Razer Phone 2 comes in a single variant with 8GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There’s a “Rugged Satin” colour variant with 128GB internal storage, though. The built-in storage can, however, be beefed up to 512GB using the dedicated micro SD card slot.

To handle heat dissipation and thermal throttling on this device, Razer brings on a Vapor Chamber cooling system to reduce the phone’s temperature to a mild level during gaming and when running other demanding apps.

Camera

The device also comes with a number of options to tone down battery consumption so users can get the most of their device. Refresh rate, for example, can be turned off for more battery power. And as mentioned earlier, the RGB illumination of the Three-snaked Razer logo can also be turned off to get more juice out of the battery.
