Ever since the Razer Phone was launched, the camera has been a point of contention for anyone who has picked up the device. However, Razer has been working to bring updates to the device which aim to improve camera performance and reliability, and now, a new update is rolling out which is the biggest camera update yet.
The update weighs in at 97MB and not only includes just fixes and improvements to the camera, as it also includes audio improvements, auto-brightness fixes, and other bug fixes. However, this update does not bring anything like the latest Android security patch, as the device is still “stuck” on the October 5th patch.

Nonetheless, here’s the list of changes included in the update:
- Improved shutter speed in low light and when using HDR.
- Reduced noise and clearer shadows.
- Improved picture quality with better color cast.
- Crushed bugs and performance improvements.
- “Tweaked the knobs” for greater clarity during playback.
- Improved call quality for HD Audio.
- Fixed some issues with Dolby audio.
While the Razer Phone may not be the first device to be recommended, it’s still one to be checked out thanks to how it is geared towards gamers. Plus, with Razer sticking to its guns and consistently providing new updates to the camera and other aspects, you have to respect what Razer is doing with its first foray into the smartphone market.
If you own the Razer Phone and have received this update, let us know whether you’ve seen any improvements in the camera. If the camera just isn’t doing it for you, don’t forget that you can download the ported Google Camera APK which is compatible with any device powered by the Snapdragon 835, just like the Razer Phone.
