Hope not.

Their Zen phones have been hit and miss. Razer tried this gaming smartphone idea and it has flopped. Mainly down to some quite bad bugs that were discovered.

What bugs?

I have the Razerphone, I'd say the only downsides to it are it's camera, and not being waterproof.

Here are just some of them. There are many more apparently.

*The most common of all, is the unresponsive phone with black screen (yet fingerprint sensors seems to pick up fingers as the phone vibrates when used). The way to get around this, is a soft reset. You can perform the soft reset by holding the Volume UP and lock button for 5 seconds.

*Youtube audio goes out of sync to the video by around 1 second - this makes it extremely hard to watch videos.

*Bluetooth Audio stops working after receiving phone call even though it shows itself as connected.

*Netflix randomly showing graphical bugs and crashing, closing the app down completely mid-way through a show.

*Phone crashing/rebooting when plugging the charger in (most commonly Aukey QC3.0 in car charger, not been an issue with any other terminal.

*Do not disturb seems as if its not working, when enabled you can still receive all kinds of notifications/phone calls.

*When using the Razer as a Hotspot, devices connected sometimes have poor ping rates and slow speeds, sometimes get disconnected. It also seems as if there is no quality of service either.
