Default New Razer 2 gaming phone

The 2nd Razer phone is out now.
Looks like a gaming powerhouse. But not sure I want this, the Asus or stick with my Essential.

Powerhouse? Nah that belongs to Apple

I do like that 120hz display though and matte black. Apple should bring their "pro motion" or high refresh rates to the iPhones. It probably wont happen because as the Razer phone 1 showed(I havent read reviews of this one yet) that higher refresh rates hit battery life significantly.

Really Apple? My work phone is a Apple iPhone 8pluse and my Essential feels like it out speeds it in every way save the camera. I had read the CPU in the iPhone was faster but it does not feel as fast. The "joys" of having to carry two phones.

The improvements are most noticeable in apps that max the CPU cores.

A11 and A12 are King in the mobile space. In games and taxing apps it's not even close. Everyday usage is about the same as other phones and sometimes feels like it's slower cause Apple won't speed up their animations.

That would make sense then as a work phone I do not install games on it, just dev apps, security, Email, and network analyzers
