HEXUS did a thorough review of the unique proposition that is the Razer Phone in November last year. The editor concluded, after various investigations and tests that Razer “ought to be commended” for its attempts to stand out from the crowd and for its unique screen, quality speakers and reasonable price. However, at the time of the review there weren’t so many games titles to make use of the Razer Phone’s capabilities.

Recently Razer updated its Phone support page with details of a slew of games that benefit from / are optimised for the 120Hz refresh rate UltraMotion screen setting on the Razer Phone (via SlashGear).

The full list of titles, by category, that can play at a buttery smooth 120Hz on the Razer Phone are, at the time of writing, as follows:

Fighting

  • Tekken Mobile
  • Injustice
  • Injustice 2
  • Mortal Kombat X

Racing

  • Gear.Club
  • Asphalt 8
  • Riptide GP: Renegade

RPG/MMORPG

  • Final Fantasy XV: Personal Edition
  • Space Rangers: Legacy
  • Vendetta Online
  • Runescape
  • Lineage 2: Revolution
  • Evoland
  • Middle Earth: Shadow of War

Arcade

  • Pac-Man
  • Pac-Man Pop!
  • RC Soccer
  • Super Samurai Rampage
  • Chicken Jump
  • Zen Pinball

MOBA

  • Arena of Valor
  • Vainglory

FPS

  • Modern Combat 5
  • Shadowgun Legends
  • Hitman Sniper

  • Titanfall Assault
  • Warhammer 40k: Freeblade
  • Warfair
  • World of Tanks: Blitz
  • World of Warships

  • Mini Metro
  • Hitman Go

The above list is quite a good selection of popular modern Android titles. We expect it to grow in time, especially with games that push the performance capabilities of modern smart devices. Please note that some older games don’t work properly with the 120Hz UltraMotion screen setting enabled. For example Jetpack and Sonic 2 need to run in 60Hz, which can be set as default for specific problematic titled within the Razer Game Booster app. Remember higher refresh rates will have some “minor effects” on your battery life.

In the HEXUS review of the Razer Phone it was noted that the camera didn’t quite live up to its promise. However, Razer issued an update back in December, with several tweaks to its camera functionality. In particular, there is now better low light performance thanks to shutter adjustments and reduced noise issues. Additionally picture quality, colour cast and other imaging aspects have been tweaked.

I really like mine, I would say that you need to get the case for it (I went for the tough one). The back of it is a very ‘slippery’ brushed metal, so it can slide out of your pocket without a case on it.

Moved to it from my Nexus 5X, the difference in speed is outstanding!
pac-man?
now there`s a game that really does need bleeding-edge tech, huh?
