The Razer Phone is equipped with a 120Hz screen, making it the first smartphone to have such a high refresh rate (most current flagships have screens with less than half of that). The high refresh rate makes the experience of actually using the phone extremely smooth; much smoother than even other phones with the same or even slightly better hardware. Scrolling, for example becomes almost an enjoyable experience since you won't be swiping down blurry text or icons but instead they will be crystal-clear. See More
Razer built this phone for people who want to use it primarily for gaming and great gaming performance usually translates to excellent general performance as well. The 8GB of RAM, the Snapdragon 835, and especially the 120Hz display make this phone a joy to use. See More
The camera is not good enough for a $700 phone. Especially in low-lighting conditions, the camera is very disappointing. Blues and greens are too blue and green to the point that pictures seem over-saturated by an Instagram filter. The camera app itself is also very laggy and slow to respond. See More
The front-facing speakers add a lot of bulk to the already large phone, making it one of the largest smartphones on the market with a size close to the iPhone 8+. Because of this it can be a bit annoying to keep in your pocket. See More
Like the Galaxy S8, the LG G6 has a taller display than most phones: most have a 16:9 aspect ratio, the S8 has an 18.5:9, and the G6 has an 18:9, or 2:1. This is fantastic for Android's newer multitasking features, as well as just general use. The vast majority of apps support this new display, so you should have no problems with that. See More
The LG G6 has a 5.7" QHD display, yet its overall size is smaller than the Galaxy S7 Edge, and significantly smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, both of which have 5.5" screens. This means that you get a bigger display with a more manageable form factor which makes it easy to use even with one hand. See More
