What can turn a good phone experience into a great phone experience is often all about what you can add to it. You have to accessorize! In the case of the Razer Phone 2, one of our current favorites, there are some great accessories you can pair it with to really help you get the most from the phone.
You can't reuse cases from the first Razer Phone, but Razer has a range of great choices and this is the standout one. It'll wrap the Razer Phone 2 snugly, adding very little bulk but lots of protection thanks to its Kevlar carbon fiber construction. And there's a big ol' cutout so your glowing Chroma logo can shine through.
If you like to take your mobile gaming really seriously, Razer has made a version of its Raiju pro controller for use with the Razer Phone 2. It's the same basic controller with rear paddles included, only with an added phone clip. Hook it up over Bluetooth and show your buddies who's boss.
If you're a mobile gamer that's going to be away from an outlet for some time, you might need a little top up lest your grind be interrupted. This 10000mAh battery pack is far from the biggest you can get, but it'll charge your Razer Phone twice, has a high power output and most of all, is small enough to fit in a pocket. And with a QuickCharge wall adapter, you can charge the whole thing back up in just four hours.
An alternative to the dongle life is to get a set of USB-C powered headphones and Razer makes its own that sound pretty darn good. They're comfortable, with a selection of tips to get a good fit, offer a decent amount of passive sound isolation, an inline remote, tangle-free cable and an included carry case. Oh, and they light up. Razer is also about to update them with active noise cancellation, too.
64GB of internal storage is great, and it's probably the minimum you'd expect to find in a high-end phone right now, but when it comes to storage, can you ever really have enough? This 128GB microSD card will add twice as much storage again to your Razer Phone 2 for a small outlay. With 100MB/s and 90MB/s read and write speeds, it's got the performance to match your superfast phone.
Carry a spare
The Razer Phone comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable in the box that's perfectly fine for charging it from the included wall adapter. But what if you want to charge from your PC or laptop, or a portable battery pack? In most of these cases right now you probably don't have USB-C ports available, and even if you do, having additional cables is always useful. In this case, it comes from a respectable brand, Aukey, and means you can plug your phone into anything with a normal USB-A port.
One of the best controllers you can get right now to use with a mobile device is the 8Bitdo SF30 Pro. It's basically a clone of the legendary SNES controller but with a modern day upgrade, so you get triggers and a pair of analog sticks. But it feels mostly like the original, and that's just great. There's an optional phone clip to mount the phone to the controller, but if you use it with the Razer Phone you may have to put the phone off center so as not to interfere with the volume buttons.
Accessorizing will really help you get the most from the Razer Phone 2, and you'll definitely want that Kevlar case (opens in new tab) to keep that metal frame and glass back nice and safe. A good controller is also a great shout if you're serious about your mobile gaming, which you probably are, and for most people, the superb 8BitDo SF30 Pro (opens in new tab) is hard to beat.
