¿What are the differences between the Razer Phone and the Razer Phone 2?
The first note is, obviously, the screen size. In the first model we see a panel IGZO LCD of 6.7 inches, in the second it decreases until 5,72 inches and keeps the 2K resolution. So you can be more comfortable in the hand for many users.
A very interesting and exciting development is the inclusion of the system RGB LED lighting. This represents 16.8 million colors and the ability to adjust various modes.
Under the hood we see another important difference: the processor. In the first we find the Snapdragon 835 and now, as is logical, the Razer Phone 2 has evolved to be more powerful. Has given the jump to the Snapdragon 845, which is the chip most powerful of Qualcomm.
is Also manufactured in 10-nanometer, but brings noticeable improvements.

Price of Razer Phone 2
The predecessor of this smartphone gaming came checking the price of 750 euro, a high figure but the height of other high-end (and even lower). If you want to buy the new Razer Phone 2 you will have to spend a bit more. In particular, 16% more, since we talk about 870 euros.
This model arrives by checking an amount that is in a price range similar to that of other at the time of its launch. I am referring to the Samsung Galaxy S9 (very capable of providing an experience gaming fluid) or the newcomer Google Pixel 3 (in its basic configuration).
The world gaming cheap you don’t and are still a few manufacturers who dare to launch mobile designed for to provide a worthy experience with video games (that must also be worthy to gozarlos). At the moment there is a great variety, and the prices are also not very accessible.
In a few days we will see other, ASUS ROG Phone, of the hand of a house very involved in the sector, gaming and that will come also with powerful features.
Xiaomi, with its excellent quality/price ratio, launched its mobile gaming and is sweeping. It is not surprising, because the Xiaomi Black Shark it is cheaper and offers a very good playing experience. Came half a year ago, but such is its success that soon we will see the Xiaomi Black Shark 2, the evolution that could raise the bar. Another interesting option is to buy the remote gaming for mobile from Xiaomi, which comes out cheaper and enhances the experience.
Without a doubt, the Razer Phone 2 comes well-equipped for the games are to have fun, and not to get on the nerves seeing how they hang. What do you think of this new smartphone gaming?
