The Razer Phone is also known as the Gaming Flagship, it is a new smartphone that is expected to be released with lots of unique features to help users enjoy a different gaming version of itself. 
The Razer Phone tips the scales the 197g, if i must say the Smartphone is on the heavy side but the extra weight helps to provide a special stability when the GYROSCOPE comes into play in Games such as; Real Racing 3 or even better on Asphalt 8.
Kindly use the comment box to share your thoughts on whether or not we need a dedicated gaming Smartphone or if the normal flagships are doing a great job.
