If you have a Razer Phone or Razer Phone 2, this month will be your last chance to get custom themes from the Razer Theme Store. The theme store will close at the end of the month, finally closing the book on Razer’s smartphone experiment.
Razer has updated them support page, indicating that the shutdown would take place on August 24. The support page also states that users should download all the themes they want before the shutdown, because once the store is taken down, the themes will no longer be available. Razer does state that an applied theme will always remain on a device, but previously applied themes will not be stored on the phone. Razer is holding out an olive branch to devastated consumers as it shared a link to some Razer wallpapers that can be permanently downloaded. You can find the mobile wallpaper by scrolling down, where there are 39 in total. If that is not enough, you can also check out the XDA wallpaper galleries.
If not familiar with the Razer Theme Store, it offers several themes that can be applied to any Razer phone. The themes included customizations for the launcher, system UI, lock screen, and more. It was a complete overhaul in terms of the visuals. Some themes were even attached to video game IPs such as Namco’s Tekken, the WB’s Dying Light, and many more. Although it is interesting, it is common to find themed apps in the Google Play Store.
In case you’ve completely forgotten Razer’s smartphone experiment, development of the first phone began after the company acquired smartphone maker Nextbit. A short ten months later and the Razer Phone was born. The phone didn’t have the most modern design, with huge bezels at the top and bottom of the screen. But what it lacked in style, it made up for in performance. The most notable feature of the Razer Phone was its 120Hz display, which was extremely rare at the time. The phone also had dual front-firing speakers and a large 4,000mAh battery.
The sequel, the Razer Phone 2, brought more of the same and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with a vapor chamber cooling system. The second iteration also offers customizable RGB lighting, the return of the 120Hz display, and dual front-facing speakers. While these handsets were gaming-optimized, they didn’t attack. Razer had a third phone up its sleeve, but canceled the launch after disappointing sales of the first two phones. Once again, the Razer Theme Store will close on August 24, 2022. Be sure to visit the store one last time and say goodbye before it closes forever.
