Without technology, we simply wouldn’t have games. The two go hand-in-hand but so often gaming-centric technology is bogged down with so many bells and whistles it would put Santa’s sleigh to shame. Much to my own embarrassment, I once owned a keyboard with a plug-in fan designed to keep your hand cool deep into a PC gaming session.
So when I got my hands on the Razer Phone 2, their second foray into the smartphone market, I was sceptical. Was it just be another overly embellished, more-style-than-substance device hoping to scoop some extra bucks out of the pockets of gamers? Or, perhaps, behind the chroma colours and marketing slogans, could there be a phone worthy of being a daily driver?
I’m pleased to report, the Razer Phone 2 is very much the latter. Having used the phone as my daily driver some time, I can see why someone other than a gamer might desire this impressive device for more than “the winning edge.”
