The best gaming phone is more affordable than ever.

Razer burst out onto the smartphone marketplace in late 2017 with the first Razer Phone. In doing so, it brought something fresh and new to the scene with a phone that placed an emphasis on the gaming experience, first and foremost.

This is how to enable the screen FPS counter on the Razer Phone 2

The Razer Phone 2 is a great phone for high-end gaming, thanks in large part because it’s full of great features. But one feature that’s hiding is easy access to frames-per-second specs while you’re playing your games.
