Yesterday Razer announced its second generation gaming phone, The Razer Phone 2. We don't have Aussie pricing or a release date yet, but I did get some time with it earlier this week. Here are the things that stood out

The Razer Phone might not have set the world on fire when it was released earlier this year, but it's still a well-made and capable device, especially if you're a gamer. That said, the $1099 asking price might have been too much for some and if you've been waiting for it to get cheaper, now's the time to grab one.
Notable gaming brand Razer went and surprised us all when they dropped their Razer Phone late last year, but apparently that wasn't enough for them. At CES2018 it announced that, in partnership with Netflix, it will be delivering both HDR-enabled content along with full Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound support. What?
As the folks at Razer would tell it, the plan was always to make a phone. No one at Razer was quite sure what that phone would look like, or precisely how it would be a "gamer" phone -- Razer's peripherals and laptops are built primarily for gamers -- but the phone was a distant dream. Now it's a distinct reality, and at $US699, the new gaming-focused Razer Phone could even be a solid alternative for people tired of slick glass-backed OLED phones like the iPhone X and Galaxy S8.
