Gaming has become a dominant form of entertainment and gamers tend to be early adopters of cutting edge tech. The new Razer Phone 2 is an entertainment powerhouse with unique features and various improvements over the original. Let’s start with the gaming features. The screen is a 5.7” IGZO LCD panel with QHD resolution instead – Razer believes 16:9 is best for multimedia. It did make the new screen 50% brighter than before, hitting a maximum of 580 nits (470 nits typical). The company claims that the new panel is better at preserving detail in dark scenes. The screen has retained the variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz, which eliminates stuttering and tearing. It supports HDR and DCI-P3 wide color gamut for better visuals in both games and videos.
