CHENNAI: Razer, who makes the coolest gaming essentials that we’d all really like to have, announced in their keynote last week that they will be releasing a new phone. Mobile tech is not my thing, unless it comes with the added allure of gaming specs. And this one does. It has the latest snapdragon processor, with 8GB of RAM, and with the 120hz smooth, lag-less frame rate it is the ultimate cuboidal brick of efficiency.

Gaming puritans might argue that a good game deserves to be played on a perfectly modded PC, or on a 4k video console. But we cannot deny older handheld gaming devices have given us some excellent videogames. The age of the Android has brought that and more to phones nowadays, and users without a single game on their phone are a rarity. But a phone for serious gaming? Although not all heavy usage games are the best ones, it’s still great to have all that additional processing capacity.

Razer also announced that they’ll be collaborating with developers to release premium games for the device. This is great for us, because we can expect some well-made, mobile optimised games soon. Arena of Valor in the battle-arena style is one of the games that will release with Razer. Shadowgun Legends, a first-person shooting RPG is also adapted for the Razer phone.

But there’s a lot happening on screen which such videogames, and a lot of us still find it rather uncomfortable to play them; fingers hiding the screen, and not really knowing what you are clicking can get a little confusing. Although Razer has the lock-button, finger-print sensor and the volume rockers placed ergonomically for gaming — it still doesn’t seal the deal of being a complete gaming device.

A similar effect could be achieved with an equally fast and cheaper Android, like OnePlus. With a lot of modular phones coming out, it would cool to see an additional joystick feature mods that can be attached to the Razer phone — making the gaming device double as an all-purpose phone, like an Android Nintendo Switch! Now if they made that as well, that would be brilliant!
