Razer released its first ever smartphone earlier this month, it had a huge hype with its dual front-facing speaker, 120 Hz display,8GB RAM and it’s 4000mAh battery. Despite all these amazing features most razer fans were pretty disappointed with the exclusion of the headphone jack. On the surface, it seemed that Razer was just following the trend that Apple had set but the CEO of Razer, Min Liang-Tang took to Facebook to explain why the company decided to lose the headphone jack.
Apparently removing the 3 mm jack enabled them to squeeze in an additional 500mAh to the battery and also improve its thermals. It’s surprising that a tiny 3mm headphone jack can cost us that much battery capacity, the 4000mAh battery in Razor phone puts it above any other flagship smartphones.
“By removing the headphone jack – we were able to increase the battery size significantly (I estimate we added 500 mAh more), improve thermals for performance and a whole lot more.”
Razer also includes a 24-bit THX-certified DAC adapter to improve its audio quality significantly thus having an “audiophile quality sound” to make up for the loss of the headphone jack. Liang-Tang says that this gave an “even better quality headphone audio” which is what “sealed the deal” for him in the first place.
Well looks like we can’t have both options, either you opt for a better battery life and get adjusted to this or choose something else. The Razer phone is now on sale for $699.
