Would you buy a Razer "gaming" phone?


#1

Say what?

“One of the most hotly rumored things about Razer is that we’re coming up with a mobile device. And I can say that we are coming up with a mobile device specifically geared toward gamers and entertainment.”


#2

That might be a thing in Asia, where gaming on your phone is common. Other than Candy Crush, what games are people playing on their phones in US?


#3

Lots (surprisingly) but this falls well into the category of “shit nobody asked for or wants,” I think; I, for one, would never buy a “gaming” phone, especially from Razer (given their product reliability of late).


#4

Dude the mobile gaming market represents billions of dollars and supports the entire app monetization ecosystem—in ad-supported free-to-play and in paid premium content.


#5

(That was a joke)


#6

I see what you did there :wink:


#7

Haha, well played. Apologies, I definitely could not read any sarcasm in that text.

To be fair, mine was a liiiiiiiiiiittttle more obvious…


#8

So Razer wants to make android devices? Also, pretty bad marketing to mention the Ouya while describing your new gaming product’s goals.


#9

razer = nope for me.

I play angry birds match when I’m taking a dump. I don’t need a gaming phone for that.


#10

Maybe if you got really into competitive angry birds…

#12

Come on, you need to raise your level of play!


#13

I watch more games on my phone than play.


#14

Had to do it.


#15

I’d probably buy the Razer Toaster before the phone…


#16

Now that you mention it, I do kind of want a toaster that I could connect via USB and had LEDs and stuff.

EDIT: What if you could import PNGs and burn designs in your toast!


#17

Something like this?


#18

That is pretty awesome.
