In an arguably stagnant phone market an unexpected new player has emerged: Razer. Yep, the well-known gaming brand isn’t hanging up its core business, rather bringing its gaming expertise to the phone market. But in the unimaginatively named Razer Phone it has achieved a tech dichotomy.

The idea of a “phone for gamers” is both exciting and a contradiction because, really, the Android platform doesn’t have that many high-end top-tier games.
