Yearning for the Razer Phone!
The Razer Phone is a product mirrored from the acquired “Nexbit Robin” which was crowdfunded in a Kickstarter campaign on September 2015, Nexbit was bought by Razer Inc. around January 2017 who are widely known for their Hardware Peripherals, they are considered one of the biggest esports pioneers and esports brands to date.
The sales of the Nexbit Robin have been ordered to be halted instantly after the official announcement of the takeover, following to that event, Razer started developing its own phone which was announced simple as “The Razer Phone“, as a direct result of the acquisition of Nexbit the disign is therefore very similar to that from the Nextbit Robin.
While Razer has built a traditional looking phone, it is outfitted with the best possible hardware for Android Gaming, the phone is packed with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with an additional 8gb ram, which is more than any android game would process to date.
With the vanilla version of Android 7.1.1. “upgradable to the Android Oreo, early 2018” installed there is no indication that this phone will be dragged down by bloatware, a direct introduced theme support by Razer will offer you the option to download special game themes directly from their store, most but not all themes will be free to download.
The phone comes with only one substantial preloaded piece of software, the “Nova Launcher prime” which is a popular third-party personalization app, this app will allow you to customize your phone at the tip of your fingers.
A few downsides:
The Phone is pretty pricey, at its current price the phone costs 749.99 euros excluding the taxes, the phone only ships to the UK, France, Germany, Denmark and Ireland, you can, however, sign up to be notified when the phone will be available for shipment to your country.

With its slick looking design and a speedy display, it looks like this phone has a lot of power under the hood, with the 1440p IPS LCD display you will have a smooth thing going here, swiping through emails and twitter with 120 frames a second will surely be a delight, and a dream coming true for me.
I am not the phone type of person, but with my current Samsung I5 still going strong my phone is starting to age, and I am kinda looking out for a replacement, I might as well find a way to acquire the phone for myself!
The only way for me to acquire this phone outside of the given countries is when I know someone that I can trust to deliver the shipment to, I hope that I am able to contact Rob in Sweden to do this for me, by this way, I can only hope, as I will most certainly send you the link of this article, that you can find it in your heart to comply with my little request, see it as a Christmas present from you to me to be the middleman into this, if not then I will need to add this to my wishlist for now …
