Razer Phone 2 Video Review: The Gaming Phone To Beat

The Razer Phone 2 was announced a little over a month ago. It went on sale from Best Buy in late October and just recently arrived on AT&T. Razer made several improvements over the original Razer Phone, but on the outside, it looks largely the same. Our own TK Bay took to YouTube to deliver a full review of the device. He goes over the Razer Phone 2 in depth and shares his thoughts on the good and bad. Watch the video below and check out the chart to see how it compares to last year’s device.
