Mike’s Thoughts: The full release is available here.
Razer expanded its product portfolio away from just PC gaming peripherals, but a jump into the smartphone market with the Razer Phone still has to be considered a bold move. Obviously a niche device, the reviews have been overly positive. Feel free to see what happens when you Google “Razer Phone reviews,” or just click here.
The entire gaming market (hardware and software) are doing nicely at the moment – and mobile gaming continues to prove that it cannot be ignored. And the mobile game titles evolved from strictly casual games with poor attempts at actual games, to entertaining titles that are available for everyone.
