The thought of getting my hands on a Razer branded smartphone has me excited. While the excitement is there, I do have my reservations. First off the price, the MSRP in the United States is $699.99. That is the price of your typical flagship smartphone from year to year, but I feel like Razer should have been Bolder and started at $549 - $599. While this devices does have killer features like 120Hz refresh rate and 4000mAh battery, you can pick up a Samsung S8 or 8+  for around the same price. Plus with the 8 or 8+ you will get streamlined features like Wireless Charging, Headphone Jack, and waterproofing. In all honesty I’m conflicted; the gamer in me is screaming get this phone while the other half is saying hold off.
