    boils down to needs and budget…

    gaming for extended periods puts a “heat” toll on these devices that kills batteries and creates a laggy game experience.

    I haven’t seen a phone yet that has proper heat dissipation without external accessories. thus, razer looks more appealing to me.

    other nice things are stock android and the 120hz screen refresh though i don’t know if we can take advantage of that. ie how often razer will update etc.

    one plus is great quality for a decent price but again, it boils down to your phone usage profile .

    DUDE, I think you dont know anything about gaming phone, I personally test OnePlus 5 for few mins of just basic games and it heats too fast. The good comparison I think is Note 8 vs Razer Phone, Note 8 is one of the the best gaming phone i ever used. LG G6, HTC U11, Xiomi Mi6, Iphone 6s, Sony XY premium, and Galaxy S8 these all phones heats up for two or three hours game continuesly. While Note 8 still calm and no issue.
