Gaming phones are a new concept that gets more and more popular these days thanks to people’s interest in portable gaming that doesn’t require an additional device in their pockets. Featuring advanced CPU, GPU and cooling solutions, gaming phones can also be perfect for those who are looking for a premium experience packed in a unique looking body.
Razer phones are new to the game but they make some of the most desirable smartphones of the moment.
The first phone from Razer was a pleasant surprise thanks to its superior gaming performances, all topped by an impressive 120Hz screen.
The bad in the good
Unfortunately, even though the whole package looks good on paper, users found some unfortunate aspects of the smartphone, their main complaint being the poor software support. The first Razer phone is still running Android Oreo, and the latest security patch is more than a year old.
The company announced that the first Razer phone will soon be eligible for an Android Pie update, an update that most Razer Phone owners can’t wait to install.
However, there’s no official date for the release of the update. The only thing we know is that the update will be out “in coming weeks”, thanks to a post on Reddit made by Razer’s marketing team.
The Razer Phone 2 did a lot better than its predecessor software-wise, as it received an Android Pie update this February.
