With cloud gaming becoming a major industry focus, the race is on to create the perfect cloud gaming device for gamers on the go to keep up with their favourite titles. You can temporarily convert some existing tech – like your phone – into a gaming handheld, but a leader in specific gaming-focused hardware has yet to find footing.
Razer is trying to change this with the Razer Edge 5G, a cellular network-activated, hyper-powerful tablet built on Android technology that’s made for gaming on the cloud. For the most part, the Edge gets the job done; where the problem lies in how it differentiates itself from other devices. To be frank, it doesn’t.
The Razer Edge 5G is an Android tablet featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon G3X chipset, Verizon ultra wideband 5G wireless, and a 6.8-inch, 144hz AMOLED touchscreen. For those that don’t speak technology, it’s essentially a souped-up Android tablet made with cloud gaming in mind. That extra power does wonders too, as playing games on this thing is silky smooth.
