Just saw the website and most of the info is rubbish, GSMArena's info about this phone is much accurate with the exception of the maximum microSD capacity where they still list it as 512GB and they claimed the phone supports CDMA.
Most USB-C DACs available in Amazon are either scams or just gimmicks, <strong>this is one</strong> of the very few that actually works as intended, and best of all, it comes from a well known brand in audio devices.
sandisk extreme pro
Personally I used a sandisk extreme A2 XC1 U3 V30 UHS1 whatever alphabet soup bullshit... the pro is like 10mbps faster... but it's a lot more expensive. Either one is as good as it gets.
Guess price has come down
you can buy another backing for it on amazon, doesnt come with the camera piece though
Removed the back and wired a USB battery pack directly to the Razor2 battery for 9000 mAhs total and a charging boost, then moved the wireless charging to the outside of the USB battery. Looks ugly, but works good.
This is the battery: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07JZCBXMM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Slide. I have tried basically every client and keep going back to this one. I tried Joey recently and found it to be close, but it requires you to install additional third-party applications in order to gain basic features that other clients just have baked in.
Custom Navigation Bar
The free version allows you to move the back button to the right. I know what you mean, I did it myself.
Note that it requires ADB (or root) access.
right here rugged phone case i been using since November and it's the best out of all of them.
Objective tests disagree with your assessment, it does indeed have some of the best cooling available and it does translate to increased performance in long gaming sessions: https://www.gsmarena.com/razer_phone_2-review-1849p5.php
There are 2 official ones mentioned in this article:
If you're a weeb and is into idolmaster Cinderella girls, check out starlight stage. It runs 120fps even with max graphics, the 3d model and camera look so damn fucking smooth and the 120hz is a game changer for music game (no screen tearing while scrolling)
The Audible app is on the Play Store and has an optional beta programme that you perhaps have entered into and forgotten about.
You could opt out of the beta programme and download the latest public build or just download the beta app again.
I'd recommend getting a magnetic cable, they're pricey but if you want to keep longevity in your charging port, its the best bet.
Edit: something like this would do the trick: https://www.amazon.com/Digital-Ant-i-Product-Compatible-Micro-USB/dp/B07GWLF4GR/ref=mp_s_a_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=magnetic+usb+c+charging+cable&qid=1628636231&refinements=p_72%3A1248879011&rnid=1248877011&s=electronics&spref...
I purchased from Amazon.
I don't know if there are USB-C headphones with built in DAC (you could ask at r/headphones or r/HeadphoneAdvice ) but you can buy a USB-C dongle that has a built-in DAC and connect regular headphones to the dongle.
I've read the Apple USB-C with DAC dongle is pretty good for its price. I don't personally have it but I use two dongles with DAC (one from the Essential Phone 2, another one bought from Amazon and branded ClipThat) and both work wonderfully with all my headphones.
Razer Phone doesn't have a DAC, so you must buy a dongle that has a built-in DAC for sound to work with regular (3.5mm jack) headphones.
Someone also mentioned that if you put it on battery saver mode, the fps goes down to 60.
You probably install something like this and tweak the battery saver mode as you like.
Paid app (not affiliated ) and I bought it for my Razer Phone 2 just to eek out more battery off it but I'm thoroughly convinced this almost 2 year old device has had degredation due to rapid charging.
The standard cable Razer gave seems to loosen the port up more / faster. I bought some new cables on a recommendation (my port isn't super worn out, but it definitely has some wear) and they have been working very good so far. I'd give them a try possible: https://www.amazon.com/Capshi-Charging-Braided-Charger-Compatible/dp/B07JJM87FG
Bought this back in October and still works fine https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07JW7GT7H
It's a basic adapter, so no charging or anything, but it works and I have had no failures as of yet.
Check out Accubattery https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.accubattery
Gives better per app usage insight than stock, and if you run it for a few weeks will estimate your battery health/degradation.
Yes... I got the phone in January and this charger in July after my port died... You see for me at least the prongs in the USB C were not in their normal positions and would no longer be usable but luckily I had the tools to fix it and ever since then I have been using a magnetic charger. Also... Don't wait as long as I did, you most likely don't know how or have the tools to fix a shifted port and it's just a hassle that's easily avoidable.
This is my favorite, and will work with the factory power block.

As I look back through my Amazon orders, all the cables I still have are from cable matters, and all my recent duds have been from cable creations.... Interesting.
I use this Anker one from Amazon. I've had terrible luck with wireless chargers that work consistently with the RP2, and this is the best one that I've found.
I wasn't a fan of the ones on the Razer website either, but I checked Amazon and found one that I love.
I personally would never go caseless, especially on a phone that's glass on both sides, but I'm not you. 🤷♂️ Best of luck
-original link doesn't work stby-
I don't use it that much, as I use either the speakers or bluetooth headphones/speaker more often but when I "HAVE" used it in situations where my full sized headphones are preferable, they don't have the same D/C issue the Razer DAC has.
Argh let me get a better link
Unfortunately 1: the product shown is now different than what I purchased (it now goes to USB-C instead 3.5mm jack) and it's unavailable anyway. That seems to be how it goes with these types of products on Amazon.
Here to save the day ��
Do a few GOOGLE OPINION REWARDS and it's paid for.
It also goes on sale/free every once in awhile. I actually snagged it on a free weekend and it's free for life
I been using this for over a year now. While not perfect, it is still pretty impressive given you do not neet to root ypur phone. You will need to set up some code via ADB, but its fairly easy to set up. Using a RP1 in case your wondering.
Since you're just using the casting to stream, could you use something like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.streamlabs instead?
Well the top 15% or so does charge more slowly to protect the battery. I haven't really looked at the estimated charge time myself but those are always pretty inaccurate. You might have a bad cable (more likely than the charger) try another if you have one.
Try installing Ampere: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gombosdev.ampere&hl=en_US&rdid=com.gombosdev.ampere
It's not super accurate but it should be somewhat close. I just checked I got ~1900 mA max charging but my battery is at 90% already. I'll try to remember and check when it's lower.
I'd be surprised if there wasn't, for example there's KineMaster that says it does some audio filtering, but it may mainly be for voice.
Usually video editors separate the audio from the video, run it through audio software, like Audacity (free) and then re-mux/add it to the video.
I use Gsam battery monitor and have given it battery permossions via adb without root needed.
How to give it permissions via adb on a computer.
I tried to get it to work, but it didn't. First things first the phone needs to be rooted and you need to install this app to spoof the GPU details. Once you set up the app to emulate a Tegra GPU it should work, but I haven't been able to download the game i was trying to run, half-life 2 itself, so I have no idea if it works or not.
We used to be able, but it seems something about Android 8.1 prevents manufacturers from adding the option.
Not even GCam by Google has the option on Android 8.1. So I believe it is not Razer's fault; since their camera app is based on Gcam's code. Unless they try to make their own source coded app later.
Open Camera has the option.
It takes good pictures, though it will show flickering on screen since it doesn't expect the fast screen refresh rate. That does not influence how the picture comes out in the end anyways.
Google's Gcam is good for videos since it has video stabilization it does via software.
i can say from opening the phone myself that the usb-c flex connector rips in half over time. if anyone does decide to replace their port, the best way to keep it alive for as long as possible is to get a magnetic charger, like this.
You don't include important information so hard to give exact advice.
If the back popped off due to battery swelling you need to get a new battery before continuing using it. I would not trust a battery that had swollen that much. A 'new'* battery isn't that expensive. I got a replacement on Ali-Express for less than 15USD. The hardest part is getting the back off, and hey look at that it has already done that for you!
If it isn't the battery that swelled up and just adhesive failing then something like this - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BXYWXY8 works just fine for reattaching it.
*The 'new' battery only came with like 80% of the full capacity of a brand new battery, but for me that was a vast improvement over a battery that had less than 50% capacity.
Ideally, yes. Every single piece of the puzzle except for theming and ringtones (the colors stock apps like Files, Settings have) can be saved by a separate app . For the moment the color you have is the color you'll be stuck with till I get the chopped-up version of this app to work, so stick with your decision. If you want other pieces, such as the Arrival wallpaper (the one that shipped with your phone) use an app that gets your wallpaper (for example, the one I used. If you get tired of the Vice wallpaper, switch back with the pre-saved wallpaper.
Well there was a concept called Project Linda. I was just asking if it is possible to enable it. But looks like it was just a concept and not a real thing. At least the sources for this feature were not published for use.
>If anyone knows of apps and ETC that would optimize the RP2 in desktop mode, I'd like to know.
You can use app like Taskbar for that.
Happened to me as well, my charging port was damaged and and no one I went to was able to fix it. Wireless charging is your last resort, I got this one recently and it works perfectly (It takes 2-3 hours to fully charge).
Remember to place the phone vertically and remove the cover.
(2 Pack) Supershieldz Designed for (Razer Phone 2) Tempered Glass Screen Protector, Anti Scratch, Bubble Free https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KBBFRZ3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apan_i_6VNS6BR25RFYXQBY7R50?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I should elaborate. I use this case and this cable. The cutout of the case holds the connector in place perfectly for a stable connection during charging and file transfer.
It's the only way as you cannot find any replacement parts for rp1.
For the best result yes. You can try to reuse the existing adhesive, but most likely it will have stretched, tore, or gummed up into clumps.
I thoroughly cleaned off the old adhesive with iso alcohol from both surfaces and used a quality 2mm adhesive. I suggest applying the new adhesive on the phone, as the inner edge makes a perfect guide for the tape. You also want to use the heatgun again once its back together and squeeze the edges with something like a cloth to get really good pressure and get a good seal. If you never touch the sticky part of the tape with your hands, and make clean exact cuts that butt together at the corners (do not overlap the adhesive), you may get a good enough result to maintain water resistance.
I used this specific tape, the thickness was perfect to where the back attached flush with the phone when putting it back together: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0817K1JQT/
I have been using these cables for 1.5 years. They work with fast charging and Android Auto. I think there is some degradation of cables over time as I noticed one of my cables will only charge a certain way. Usually you can flip them and they will charge in any direction.
The magnets do attract some dirt occasionally and you will have to clean them out with some compressed air or something. I use these cables daily for recharging my phone and other things like xbox controller, headphones, earbuds. It comes with 3 USB-C, 3 micro USB, and 3 lightning connectors.
Hmm, still capped at 29.99 fps.
Tried 60 and 120 fps under its settings and recorded some test videos.
All tests are capped at 30 fps.
Upon further research, it looks like the Razer Phone 1's camera module is only capable of 30 fps recording.
Razer Phone 2 however, should be capable of 60 fps recording according to the same source:

I think it will be too small to fit. Here's a stand someone made for Baseus on thingiverse.
The way I made my remix was to print the original Anker charger dock. Then measured how high up I needed to lift it to register a charge. I then just used Tinkercad to fill in the gaps and shave off the sides.
You should be able to install Netflix (and keep it up to date) using a third party APK download service such as APKPure. The app itself will work. Netflix has simply told the Google Play Store to no longer offer the app if the device you're trying to install it on is rooted, but if you side load the app using services like APKPure that'll still work.
Grab the nano package from https://opengapps.org
I had to install lineage os then boot straight into download mode then fastboot boot twrp into read only mode & install gapps.
This will install the play store and a few other behind the scene bits so you don't have Google junk installed to your system. Then any Google apps like messages, calanader, clock, ect you can download from play store and disable lineage OS ASOP/OEM equivalent app.
I use this wireless battery pack & just stick it on to the back of the phone when I need to top up the battery. Pretty nice since it stays in place, & small enough that you can stick it in your pocket attached to the phone. It's not exactly what you're looking for, but a viable alternative.

initially i purchased this wireless charger, its fantastic. i went to purchase a 2nd one and they were sold out. so i ended up going with this. it charges just as fast and is slightly larger in diameter so the phone is more stable, however it lacks the premium feel of my original charger.
My charging port just gave out too. Luckily the wireless charging can keep me alive for the Pixel 6 Pro, but it is gonna be a pain.
Pick up a portable wireless charging bank if you can! This is the one that I'm using and it works really well!
I just bought a cheap drop resistant Spigen case when I first got my rp2 two years ago as a temporary measure until I could get ahold of a "better" one. I continue to use the same Spigen case to this day... I have dropped this phone more times than I can count, on pavement the majority and once from 40ft in the air working on cable lines, and it's even been run over by a diesel pickup. Not just grazed by the wheels but full on left tire dust prints on the entire screen. The only thing wrong with it after all that is some screen discoloration in 2 little spots when darker colored scenes are playing and that was only because I had a pop socket on the back that created more pinpoint pressure to those spots.
I also bought a two pack of cheap tempered glass screen protectors. I've only changed it once so far, the second one is wearing out now too so about once per year per screen protector. And I put pretty heavy use on it working outside yeeting tools in my pocket then yeeting them out having the phone yeet with it 🤣
The Tudia Cases are worth a look because they are thin.
My RP1 has a Tudia LUCION Case which is very thin and light, but no longer available.
Matte screen protector. (Don't ask me how it is, I use a tempored glass one)
As for the blue light filter, just use the night light mode (Settings>Display>Night Light)
My battery still seems to be going strong after 2 years, this is what AccuBattery says: https://i.imgur.com/a5mrzH6.png
Capacity reporting is pretty accurate too, the biggest "drop" I've seen was 2% at once. Something worth noting is that this is my first phone with a non-replaceable battery so I am pretty careful with it, most notably, I use this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.slash.batterychargelimit&hl=en&gl=US, I set it so it oscillates between 75% and 80% rather than charging to 100%, this is enough for everyday use for me. I do occasionally charge to 100% (it's just 1 click away to override it once with the app) if I'm unsure I'll be able to plug the phone at the end of the day.
I hope you haven't rooted it. That kills battery faster than stock. Idk why but hey, carrying a nice capacity power bank is a good idea lol
I used a wireless charging one and one of these:
> the HDMi adapter I bought isn't compatible with the phone, freezing it until I unplug it
The phone supports USB-C DP alt mode, you don't need an adapter, any basic USB-C to DP or HDMI cable should work, e.g. https://www.amazon.com/uni-Thunderbolt-Compatible-MacBook-Surface/dp/B075V5JK36
I was having issues to but then installed Kaspersky battery app.
It's 100% free and amazing. Just make sure to load it every few hours to make sure all your apps are shutdown. It seems like apps wont actually close and keep hibernating in the background.
i've been using this one at home and this one at work. the one i have at work is decent though the one i have at home is much better quality and will charge your phone very fast when used with the included razer charger.
Hi, sorry for the slow response. Just got back from break.
Yes, offer is still good. If you want the RP2, I can send it for 100$ plus shipping. It is in good condition, and comes with the Arctech pro case from Razer
I currently have the Trinity Kernel installed on the standard Razer OS. I can wipe the phone and leave that installed, or just completely reset to factory, your choice.
Ordered that one yesterday! Along with one other one because it says it has quick charge 4.0. Not sure which was going to be best, might have to change the order and just keep the order with the version 3 Anker.
I use this Anker power cable and started using their new power brick. Since I carry my charger with me to work, I wanted a smaller brick that was close to the same watts as the original. No complaints from me on both items.
All Qi chargers work, you just need to be able to lay the phone flat. That means you gotta find something big enough instead of the little circular ones.
My guess is something similar to this should work.
The official charger is pretty forgiving on placement, it has 3 coils.
I can't give any help...
but have you reset the dock and/or re/connected it through the App with Bluetooth?
People are dirty scammy. Maybe he sold you a bad one.
Does the cable allow fastcharging through USB into phone? If not get a better cable and try that.
Inware is a great app for checking all kinds of stuff.
IDK, just saying stuff.
I'm using this Anker wireless charger
But as most people have discovered, the charging coils on the RP2 are near the bottom of the phone. So it tends to fall off of the charger. So I remixed an existing Anker charger dock to hold the phone at the correct height and added a lip for stability. It fits my phone comfortably with a Tudia case.
Welcome to the fold! Happy Halloween to you too!
Take a look through Nova Launcher settings for your navbar issues, including but not limited to hiding it.
Alternatively, you can give a separate app a try: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=xyz.paphonb.systemuituner
I always recommend rooting your device, too! So many more endless options open up.
I wouldn't recommend using an external SD card formatted as internal. It's not an idea that usually works out in a few different ways. Besides our internal SD card is really fast. If you do choose this route, go HIGH END!
Wireless charging: make sure you choose an EPP certified charger, or you will be stuck @ 5w slow charge.
EPP stands for: Extended Power Profile. Our phone supports 10w wireless fast charge, and has been certified by google to accept EPP. An easy way to discover if it's an EPP charger is notice if it says something like qi fast charge for samsung, lg, sony etc. Not just iphone and Samsung. Stay away from Samsung chargers as they use their own proprietary coding to achieve fast charge.
Also since our coils are real low, any small to medium size puck will cause phone tipping. Maybe shoot for a triple coil stand.
There are a fair number of threads and posts between reddit and razer forum about charger selections/recommendations. I'm sure with a little reading, you'll find a perfect aftermarket one!
Junglecat question: yes it's supported. It's simply a Bluetooth, albeit a pretty good one, controller.
This thread might help you find a couple games: https://insider.razer.com/index.php?threads/what-games-are-you-playing-on-mobile-this-weekend.56029/ -be sure to post some of your favourite ones.
If you have a 3d printer, there a a few junglecat cases and improved mounts available, too!
I use this one.
I don't really know how long it takes but it is a long time. I usually just put my phone on it at night and its charged in the morning. My guess would be over an hour from 0-100.
Just FYI be careful getting a wireless charger stand if you're going that route because the charging coil on the RP2 is considerably lower on the phone than other phones.
Spigen has one on amazon. It covers all sides of the phone and has a cut out to show off the Razer logo. The only issue I have with it is that it doesn't fit the phone correctly if you have the temper glass screen protector installed. It isn't too terrible but it bugs the hell out of me. I believe it will work better if instead a plastic one is installed. Here is the link:
It was listed on Amazon but not on their main store? May still not be in the main store but it has been out for awhile: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07JN6V3K5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
No prob: Amazon Link
Official name (i think): google usb type c to 3.5mm headphone adapter
Check out amazon, they have some good thin ones, I bought this one and honestly wouldnt want another case for another phone again
Does the need of the Anker Quick Charge Wall Charger make a difference or is the power pad enough? Because amazon recommends this to me whenever I look at this pad.
Quick Charge 3.0, Anker 18W 3Amp USB Wall Charger (Quick Charge 2.0 Compatible) Powerport+ 1 for Galaxy S10/S9/S8/Edge/Plus, Note 8/7, LG G4, HTC One A9/M9, Nexus 9, iPhone, iPad and More https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077HFFLMS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_h.L9Db311GVQ0
Thank for the feedback.
I searched on amazon but didn't find a single wallet style case without the cutout.
So I settled for this case : Tudia Razer Phone 2 Case
It wasn't really what I wanted but I better than no case and it doesn't look too 'dumb'.
My default camera app doesn't work properly either, but I've found the "Open Camera" app works great for me, on my Razer phone 2.
Only downside is that it doesn't do panorama shots.
6-7 months ago the top half of my RP1 went dead. I've been using Reachability Cursor to maintain functionality of the phone. It mirrors your finger as a cursor on the top half of the screen. It might work for you to keep the phone working well enough before you get a new one. I've mostly been too lazy to get a new phone, so been suffering with the dead half of the screen (idk how I've tolerated it so long).
Link to the Reachability Cursor app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.niftyui.reachability&hl=en_CA
Might have to be rooted, but you can use this app and activate full screen immersive mode like the old days. Even comes with a handy toggle for your status bar pulldown.
>e of the unofficial PS4 Remote Play apps, both of which have DS4 Support for remote play, I have both on my RP2 and use the Sony GCM10 to mount m
In addition to that I would also like to mention my app called PSPlay.
It's available on the Play Store, currently in early access but should support almost all features (microphone support will be available in the next update). Of course you can use your Dualshock controller on all Android devices which have at least Android 5.0 or any other 3rd Party controller. You can find more information in the app description itself. It's not free though but at least a little bit cheaper than the other ones.
Feedback is highly appreciated, I will constantly try to improve it. Thanks :)
You can't disable that but there's a workaround.
Get a live wallpaper app, import the IMG you want, set it as wallpaper without any live animations.
There are plenty live wallpaper apps available but this is the one I use

2)something like this
Implementation/adherence to dark mode preference is dependent on each app. Most popular apps have a dark mode that is flipped on automatically based on the device preference (wish they would just show the preference in their settings).
That said, a lot of phones don't have the device setting available. Fortunately, apps have the ability to set the global preference (I wonder how long this will hold true). So you can leverage these apps to do it on your behalf, like this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.darkmode.night.newmoon
Don't be surprised if it doesn't work for your phone, or all your apps. But you should see Facebook/Insta/Gmail turn dark for example.
You'll have to run a command line prompt to give permission but Quick Settings (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.simonesestito.ntiles) has a toggle for Immersive Mode that will hide the Navigation Bar.
Also I'm not sure but doesn't turning on Gesture Control remove the Nav Bar?
This is worth checking out. I would plug your phone into a desktop computer via USB and set it to media transfer protocol to investigate what is up with the reported storage numbers. Alternatively you can use something like: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobile_infographics_tools.mydrive to get an idea of what is going on in the background.
This one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.devdnua.equalizer.
Been using it for about 3 years. Got it for free in a deal they had a while ago. For the RP2, it's good for adding minor tweaks on top of Dolby. Turning the bass all the way up on it helps a little with all the notification sounds.
Have you tried sentio desktop? Not a perfect solution but i use it daily and it serves my purposes.
Sure it could be better, but this works on non rooted phones. Also has some adb commands to open it up a bit more.
The app I originally recommended could record but I couldn't get it to live monitor anymore.
The app I managed to occasionally get live monitoring in was https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ntrack.studio.demo
But it crashed A LOT when switching to USB sound which tells me the issue is software related.
okay, so the cable has to REALLY be pushed in all the way to the adapter. Either its jack is a little small or the razer adapters jack is a little large but it doesn't sit super snug.
I used this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=lauresprojects.com.mictest&hl=en_US

I'll try the phone call later today when my partner gets home! This whole thing is a weird headache, in theory it should all just work out but it just refuses hahaha
If you intend to keep the phone for several years without needing to replace the battery, this can be a good reason to root: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.slash.batterychargelimit&hl=en_US Not charging your battery 100% all the time helps keeping it good for longer which is important now since it's much harder to replace batteries on modern smartphones.
I have the RP1, and wasn't sure if they changed something between the models.... This cable would be a better option then.... :)
get one of the 10w round ones off amazon (i use this one) and if you position it where the bottom of the phone is even with the edge of the circle they will charge just fine.
I bought these Digital Ant ones a few weeks ago: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07TT1CFNG
They are okay so far. Supports fast charging and data transfer, but connection seems iffy sometimes. Magnet strength is okay, but not great.
You can buy additional tips, but they are very overpriced. It's $7.50 for 2 additional tips (USB-C, Lightning, or Micro USB) or just buy another set of cables for double that price and get 2 of each tip plus more cables.
It fits in my Spigen Liquid Air case, but it sticks out a bit so the bottom is no longer flat in case you stand your phone up.
I got this one (no referral links I despise them) - https://www.amazon.com/magn%C3%A9tico-cargador-trenzado-compatible-iProduct/dp/B07WG4K7KS/
Is it the BEST? No clue but works for me and have had cables for several months. Other than my cat playing with them and scratching the wires, they work fine.
Any qi charger WILL work. It's just the coil placement. I would recommend a flat one, just know that the coils in our phone are placed low because of the razer logo that lights up.
The other thing to remember that it has to be certified for at least 10W I think in order for Qi fast charging.
I have a 3rd party charger that works well and looks good.
Any charger should work. Some of the really cheap ones might charge slower but generally wireless charging is a standard. The only thing you have to know is that the charging coil in the phone is at the bottom of the phone rather than the middle so the phone can't sit in the middle of the charging pad (the top third of the phone will be off the pad). Docks that hold the phone vertically might struggle but any that lie flat should be fine.
I use an anker charger that I bought from Amazon and it's worked well for more than a year now.
I'm using this one.
but its unavailable on Amazon currently.
Straight up I would recommend buying a decent pair of Bluetooth earphones/headphones. Each of my adapters broke within a month of use.
The one supplied with the phone never worked, the one they sent out as replacement (they sent me the razer phone 1 model) stopped working within 2 weeks, and a model i found on amazon for around £15 quit on me in about 5 weeks.
Ended up just getting some Audio Technica Sport50s and theyve been holding strong.
No charger is going to work with any case, that's not how electricity works. You need to pass current from one coil (charger) to the other (phone). So having a case in between doesn't work

Here's the charger I'm talking about on Amazon : https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07DBXZZN3?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
And to have the best charge time here's an adapter : https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07X39KF5B?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
extremely bouncy brick roads everywhere. I use the spigen liquid air case in this holder https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VJNLJ2M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and couldn't be happier (knowing that getting a perfect fit is unlikely due to RP2 qi location.) It doesn't let go. It works flawlessly. Don't know how else to put it.
