    No I didn’t get it finally:/ the seller just sent me €50 as a compensation for not coming on meeting point and didn’t sell it to me, I think he got other buyer with way higher price idk, well i think I’ll keep it for purchasing directly from Razer sometime. Or God just keep me away from silver Razer Logo and push me to wait for LE one appears somewhere;)

    No it likes Craigslist but more safety I think, since EBay is also involved on the site, called EBay little advertisement on german and it’s free. Got €100 cheaper for €650 and plus already with original case and screen protector, i got around €170 benefit on the deal actually, No luck on the phone:/ but got from him €50 anyway;) Other deals recently was also around €650 (normal price here’s €750), but i was falling a sleep and missed the chanceo_O

    i have had, galaxy S6, & recently S8 and this phone runs almost double the amount of time to those phones for me...

    not sure where this poor battery life thing is coming from??

    My iPhone 6s Plus still runs well but I’m looking for the next phone to use beside it, Razer Phone is on the top list, I could get S8+ for €500 new for learning android systems but yes you right for me it’s also isn’t good enough for my upgrade.
    I think you have to find best configuration to max its battery life because Razer might be putting default setting that pushed performance or cooling that take the battery faster, like with their Blades.

    I run my own IT business single-handedly - i use my phone contantly like a pc...using apps like wifi analyser, fing (network analyser), remote desktop, and this Razer phone, has hands down the best battery life i have ever experienced in a smart phone last 6-7 years. With my S8 i was always having to top it up every time i got into my car, or use a power bank all the time. i have never had the need to do this with this phone.

    Good specs, the 4000mAh will make it last more than 1 day as usual....but too pricey imo

    Hey guys anyone knows how to clean the phone speakers?
    My son got a bit of chips in the tiny holes
    Plus anyone notice that the speaker plate might be popping a bit?

    If you watch some of ifixit available videos on the phone you will notice that the grills are just for show. so maybe with a toothpick you can clean the holes.
    if its popping a bit, just apply some glue, it's some flexible plastic ;)

    It’s not just for a show, I saw the material is pretty similar with Razer laptops speaker grill. Don’t have the phone though but on laptop it produces better sound and also has protection functions for speakers like reduce dusting inside.

    have the slight popping issue I was gonna RMA but I cba dealing with no phone for a couple of weeks just for a slight pop but if it gets worse I will.

    As for cleaning the speakers try an anti static computer brush (very small bristles one) it's what I use and so far mine are pretty clean.

    well, when the speaker output use around 20% of the grill estate, I call it for show. The speaker underneath doesn't fill the grill.
    However I do agree that the glued part that link the plastic grill and the phone provide a bit of a protection from dust. But yet, the grill is for show. As far as i am concern, I love this phone, but I don't want to be just the fan boy that doesn't acknowledge the issues with the phone.
    I own a Sony Z5 that has almost the same design and here, the front glass panel have slight rectangular holes for the speakers. This phone has IP68 protection. I give you that the sound is not excellent. However, I would have loved Razer to go the extra mile to make it more splashproof/dustproof as its speakers are already protected by some rubber (to help avoiding humidity).
