    So, today Razer finally announces the new Razer Phone (yup, that's it's name xD) aka The 'Insane' Phone.

    All this verison has is a green emblem on the back instead of a black one.

    As you can see, it's the best phone on the market currently in terms of specs. It's insanely powerful.

    Now, because it's powerful and got all this new fancy technology, what's it's price? More expensive then the iPhone X at $1000? Well no, not at all. The price is only $699. Yup.

    Now, because it's got this awesome screen and much higher capabilities, what about games? Current games cannot take advantage of it's tech. And that's why Razer is working with games companies to make special versions of games so that it can fully use the Razer Phone's capabilities. This includes Tekken (yes, THE Tekken), Final Fantasy XV and a MOBA that I really hate the look of personally, Arena Of Valor (It just looks like every mobile MOBA ever aka a direct rip off of DOTA 2 and LoL). Another game is a PUBG type game which just looks like all other PUBG clones that are on the mobile store. Many more games will be coming soon since there's loads more companies they're working with.

    When the phone comes out, it will be coming out with the Razor Theme Store. This comes with multiple different themes that change the skin of the launcher, wallpaper and lock screen to whatever you choose. And of course, there is a toaster theme. All the themes on the store on release day will be free (for forever I believe) as a kind of thank you for buying the phone.

    For buying it, in the US it's a Microsoft store exclusive and will be in stores on the 17th of November THIS YEAR. Yes, this phone will be coming out this month. It will also be sold on Razer's website and pre-orders start today, to be shipped on the 17th. In the EU it will be a Three store exclusive, pre-orders there start on the 3rd, shipping on the 17th.

    I'm pretty sure I've covered everything important, I'll add anything if something comes up and I've remembered it. So, are any of you going to get this phone? What are your thoughts on it? I'm gonna try and get it myself since I need a new phone anyway, but it might be a little out of my price range :c

    I'm not a huge fan of squared corners on phones, to be honest. I used to have a Sony smartphone and it just bothered so much because it just didn't look as nice as phones with rounded corners. I'm sure some people will love this and get it but for me, it's a no. I rarely play any games and when I do, it's games that any decent phone can handle. I really don't need a phone that has been specifically built with gaming in mind. And then there's the price. You can get a pretty good phone for that price that is from a big phone manufacturer and not from a brand that has just made their first phone.
