Razer Opus review: $200 ANC headphones have no business being this good

Razer sells flashy, designer gaming laptops and accessories, and it's not typically an outfit you'd associate with value — the fanciest version of its Blade laptop costs $4,300, and its new Kishi mobile gamepad is 80 bucks. Its Opus headphones break with a number of Razer conventions, though: not only do they sport an uncharacteristically tame aesthetic that doesn't scream gaming, they're also priced extremely competitively at $200.

LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM in existence, and the project prides itself on bringing newer versions of Android to unsupported devices.

Well, from February 20, that particular net will be cast wider as the game-streaming service has announced support for non-Pixel mobile devices.

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. Even beyond all the usual players - Apple, Anker, Plantronics, Jaybird, Sony, and others - there are thousands of white-label models from countless companies. Despite this, rubber-tipped earbuds still vastly outnumber Apple-style plastic-tipped buds.

Everyone is making true wireless earbuds lately, but this setup pushes the limits of Bluetooth.

Razer is mostly known for its RGB-lighting heavy gaming equipment, but the company also already published the second iteration of its Android phone around this time last year, the aptly named Razer Phone 2.

[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. Thankfully for those of you who bought the device, Razer has finally confirmed that a Pie update for the OG Razer Phone will arrive soon.
