Razer Phone 2 vs. Black Shark 2: Gaming flagships face off

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that just about all modern flagship smartphones are starting to look very, very similar. An edge-to-edge display up front, a few camera lenses on the back and — bam! — you’ve reached the pinnacle of smartphone design. That is, unless you’ve been keeping an eye on some of the smaller niches in the market, like gaming smartphones.

Mobile gaming is big business so it’s no surprise that at least a few companies are trying their hands at handsets built with gaming in mind, but the results are often hit-or-miss. I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with the two top smartphones built for gaming: the Razer Phone 2 and the Black Shark 2, and I have to admit that I am pleasantly surprised at how this particular smartphone niche is evolving.
