Razer Phone and iPhone X or Apple and Razer: we tell you which is the best

Razer Phone and iPhone X

Razer Phone and iPhone X, or the debutant who unleashes the winner. Many are those who believe that, as of today, the iPhone X is not comparable with anything. We do not de facto deny this statement, although we are not willing to accept it without further ado, without contrasting it. In fact, that's what our function is here, in Digital Trends in Spanish.

Razer Phone is the first attempt of the PC accessory manufacturer Razer to create a mobile device. It has the powerful Snapdragon 835 processor, 8 GB of RAM and a screen that, according to Razer, makes it the best mobile gaming device on the market. But does the Razer Phone have what it takes to challenge the newly launched iPhone X? To find out, we take both phones and face them face to face. Everything you need to know before buying a Razer or an iPhone X follows.

The Razer Phone is packed to the brim with the best features of Android. The Snapdragon 835 has been tested on the Galaxy Note 8, the LG V30 and the Pixel 2, and is a powerful chip with a lot to offer. Included with the 8 GB of RAM, it is a device with a lot of power, and should be able to handle everything you want. But the Bionic A11 chip of the iPhone X has repeatedly outperformed the Snapdragon 835 in several tests. While the iPhone X only has 3 GB of RAM, iOS and Android devices handle RAM very differently, so the additional 5 GB of Razer Phone RAM does not necessarily translate into better performance.

None of the devices have a headphone jack, so it's nice to know that the iPhone X comes with Bluetooth 5.0. The Razer, on the other hand, is stuck with Bluetooth 4.2, despite having abandoned the 3.5mm port. Why did they do it? It is a mystery, besides being a shame.

The winner is less clear when it comes to available storage space. While the Razer Phone is definitely the loser in terms of internal storage options, it only has a 64GB model compared to the 64GB and 256GB options of the iPhone X s that has a MicroSD slot to increase that available space to 256GB.

The winner here is quite clear. There is no doubt that the Razer Phone with Snapdragon 835 is powerful, but the Bionic A11 processor is very well optimized with the iPhone hardware.

Winner: iPhone X

Design and visualization

Razer Phone and iPhone X

The iPhone X is Apple's first phone to follow the trend of minimal bezels, and has been carefully adjusted to match the futuristic aesthetics that other manufacturers have established. A 5.8-inch OLED screen dominates the front, and while it is not a true edge-to-edge screen, it is difficult to notice where it ends.

The rest of the phone is coated with a mixture of steel and a glass back, which allows wireless charging. It is a magnificent design and if you manage to look away from the screen, you will surely paste them back into your design.

Razer's phone could not be more different. Razer avoided the trend without bezels and opted for a design that resembles a smart phone last generation a few years ago. A reason? Razer has equipped this phone with two powerful front speakers that flank the screen. It reminds us a lot of an Xperia XZ Premium. Following recent trends is fine, but it's nice to see something more classic from time to time. All the phone is clad in aluminum, so there is no wireless charge here.

The Razer phone screen is a 5.7-inch IPS LCD that uses 120Hz Ultramotion technology. What does this mean? That the screen works at twice the usual speed than the screens of other smart phones. This technology is not new and we have already seen it previously on the iPad Pro, but it is still really impressive and makes the phone's performance seem even more fluid.

In terms of durability, it is likely that the Razer can receive more hits than the iPhone X, thanks to the durability advantage of aluminum on the glass and zero (in addition, an iPhone repair bill comes up expensive, so we recommend a case for your iPhone X urgently). But, the iPhone X comes with an IP67 rating, while the Razer Phone has no resistance to water or dust.

We like the reactionary design of the Razer, as well as the incorporation of double speakers and its 120Hz screen. But a fast screen can't match the colors and sharpness of the iPhone X OLED screen, whose design is one of the most impressive we've seen.

Winner: iPhone X
