[Update: More titles] Razer publishes an official list of 120Hz-optimized Android games

One of the aspects David heavily praised about the Razer Phone when he tried it is the 120Hz display. But what good is a high refresh rate when you can't take advantage of it to the max? After all, gaming is the one major aspect Razer built this display for and it'd be good to know how it can best be utilized.

That's why Razer has published a list of all the 120Hz-optimized games on its site so you can check those out to see the full benefits of the display in action.

TWRP now supports Razer Phone, Xiaomi Redmi 5 and 5 Plus, and more

Team Win Recovery Project, better known as TWRP, is basically a synonym for "custom recovery" these days. It makes it easy to step into the world of custom ROMs and other flashable things for older and newer devices alike. Since our last update earlier this month, TWRP has added 11 more smartphones and tablets to its ever-growing roster, including the Razer Phone and Xiaomi Redmi 5 and 5 Plus.

Razer Phone updated with improved camera and audio performance

Razer Phone updated with improved camera and audio performance

Razer announced its first phone almost two months ago. Since then, the device has accrued some good feelings from reviewers. The 120Hz snappiness and flagship-level specs all spoke to a high-performance device, but the poor camera results were an unfortunate oversight. Razer's CEO, Min-Liang Tan, promised to improve things with future updates, and today the first of those updates has landed.

Kernel source code was just released for the Razer Phone

Kernel source code was just released for the Razer Phone

The lifecycle of device modification usually goes a little like this: a phone gets released with an unlockable bootloader -> that phone's kernel source gets released -> the same phone then gets increased developer attention resulting in custom kernels and ROMs. Today the Razer Phone has hit that intermediate milestone, and the source code for its kernel has been released to the public as per the terms of the GPL.

Razer Phone gets subjected to JerryRigEverything's torture, doesn't catastrophically fail bend test like Nextbit Robin did

Razer Phone gets subjected to JerryRigEverything's torture, doesn't catastrophically fail bend test like Nextbit Robin did

The Razer Phone was designed by the same folks who handled the Nextbit Robin, which snapped like a twig in JerryRigEverything's hands. Fortunately, this metal-clad phone fares a bit better, though it's by no means a durability champ like some other phones. But hey, at least it doesn't completely bend in half, right?

Razer details upcoming improvements to its camera

Razer details upcoming improvements to its camera

The Razer Phone has been receiving generally-positive reviews, but one sore point has been the camera. The dual 12MP rear cameras are impressive on a specifications sheet, but in real-world usage, the shutter speed is slow and HDR increases the capture time by a few seconds. The pictures themselves don't look bad (perhaps a bit over-saturated), but the process of taking them isn't great.

Razer Phone hands-on: 120Hz displays on phones need to happen immediately

Razer Phone hands-on: 120Hz displays on phones need to happen immediately

When Razer purchased Nextbit last year, fans were understandably concerned that the company might be gobbled up by the gaming-focused brand for its intellectual property and engineering talent, without explicit intent to produce another smartphone. Well, those concerns can (obviously) be laid to rest: Razer built a phone. And by Razer, I mean the former Nextbit team working inside Razer. It's called the Razer Phone. Creative, I know.

One look at the Razer Phone will have you saying "Nextbit Robin 2.0." The styling is clearly derivative of Nextbit's, down to the sharply squared-off edges and large bezels. But gone is the Robin's two-tone paint scheme, instead replaced with a black rubberized finish designed to resist fingerprints and add grip.
