Razer Phone FAQ Featured

When Razer introduced plans to make a cellphone, we had been a bit skeptic, contemplating the poor run of gaming telephones prior to now (Xperia Play, N-Gage) however now that the Razer Telephone is right here, we’re pleasantly shocked. It’s not solely an important gaming cellphone, however it’s an important Android smartphone as effectively. Other than the a lot hyped 120Hz refresh price, twin audio system and so forth., the Razer Telephone is the primary cellphone with Nova Launcher Prime pre-installed. Plus, it has one other actually cool trick up its sleeve. I’m speaking in regards to the “Theme Retailer”.

The Theme Retailer within the Razer Telephone is just not your gimmicky theme retailer, such as you would see on numerous telephones. As a substitute, it’s a correct theme engine, powered by Sony’s OMS theme engine (Overlay Supervisor Service). The OMS theme engine is similar theme engine that powers the highly regarded Substratum theme engine and the theme engine that’s a part of Android Oreo.

The parents at XDA tried out the “Breadwinner” theme (based mostly on Razer’s final yr April Idiot’s joke) on the Razer Telephone, which supplies UI components and apps a Brown theme. Doesn’t look too get however you get the thought, proper?


I’m certain you’re pondering because of this Substratum themes ought to work natively on the Razer Telephone. Nicely, technically, they need to, however the issue right here is, themes have to signed by Razer to work and the Theme Retailer, at the moment, solely options themes from Razer. Sure, no third get together themes. Nonetheless, I’m fairly certain that the oldsters at XDA will handle to make third get together themes run on Razer Telephone. Having mentioned that, the inclusion of a Theme Retailer, powered by OMS, is a superb addition to the already function wealthy Razer Telephone. I actually prefer it. What about you?
