Razer Hammerhead True Wireless review: AirPods-style earbuds without a killer feature

I don't think it's a stretch to say the market for truly wireless earbuds is absolutely saturated at this point.

[Update: Rolling out] Razer Phone will get Android 9 Pie 'in the coming weeks'

The original Razer Phone received widespread praise when it was released in late 2017, mostly thanks to its then-unique 120Hz screen. However, Razer hasn't done a great job with long-term support, as the device is still running Android Oreo with a year-old security patch.
