  • Not all clear phones are created equalsome turn out way better than others.

  • And this is a story of one clear Razer Phone that didn't turn out so well.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • So usually when I get brand new phones, like this Razer Phone 2, I'm one of the first people

  • to try and take them apart.

  • Since manufacturers generally frown upon dissecting phones, or fixing your phone yourself, there

  • is zero instruction on how it's done.

  • Initially I thought that this year's Razer Phone would be similar to last year's Razer

  • Phone, and we would initiate the teardown from the large earpiece.

  • Turns out, that earpiece doesn't have any screws behind it this year, and it's completely

  • unnecessary to remove.

  • So let's just plop that grille back into place and pretend it didn't happen.

  • Perfect.

  • Let's start over.

  • To open up the Razer Phone 2 we start from the back using a heat gun.

  • On this phone, the glass is a totally flat slab.

  • Glass is still fragile, of course, so I'm being extra cautious around the corners, using

  • my razor blade to slice into the Razer Phoneslightly ironic.

  • The razor cuts the thin band of watertight adhesive around the inner edges.

  • Once it's all sliced, the full slab of glass can pull away from the device, revealing the

  • large black wireless charging coil in the center, and the wide LED pad for the Razer

  • snake logo right below those dual cameras.

  • At first glance, it's not as interesting inside as some of the other clear phones I've made,

  • but maybe this minimalist Razer vibe will still turn out good.

  • I'll remove the dual cameras lens bracket that has these same black adhesive holding

  • it to the rear glass panel.

  • Then the black material applied to the underside of this glass appears to be the same scratchable

  • coating we saw on the Pixel 3.

  • Meaning that instead of pulling it off in one satisfying layer, the whole thing needs

  • to be scratched off, slice by slice, bit by bit.

  • I'm going to try to leave the Razer logo intact this time around, since the glow effect of

  • the LEDs on the back panel is kind of what makes this phone stand out.

  • It looks like the snakes are stuck on with the same fragile coating as the rest of the

  • glass, so cutting around them is going to be rather tedious.

  • But it does give me plenty of time to think of more super funny phone jokes like this

  • one:

  • Why did the cell phone start wearing glasses?

  • Because it lost all of it's contacts.

  • The hardest part of this whole project is the logo in the center, trying to keep that

  • clean and neat while scratching off all the black paint around it.

  • The good news is that the surface of the glass panel is harder than my razor blade, so there

  • are no razor scratch marks on the surface of the glass.

  • My fingers, on the other hand, are softer than the razor blade, but who needs all 10,

  • right?

  • In the end though, I was relatively successful in clarifying the back glass panel.

  • It looks pretty slick...and no slices on my fingers.

  • Thumbs up for that.

  • I just wish the stuff underneath the glass, inside the phone was more interesting to look

  • at.

  • A little bit of glass cleaner to get rid of any smudges.

  • Then I'll set the camera lens into place directly over the cameras, and then rest the glass

  • panel back into the Razer.

  • It's definitely unique looking.

  • I think this is one of those cases where a pure transparent glass back might not be the

  • best option.

  • It might just need a more semi-transparent gradient blend of black and neon green on

  • the glass.

  • And, of course, a more interesting looking wireless charging coil.

  • The Razer Phone might just be one of the few phones that doesn't look good naked.

  • What do you think?

  • It's pretty hard to follow up with the fantastic looking Pixel 3.

  • Maybe I'll just put one of my extra skins on the back to make it look normal and pretend

  • it never happened...again.

  • Nailed it.

  • I'll still be tearing down the Razer Phone 2 to check out the inner liquid cooling vapor

  • chamber and to see if they upgraded their tiny vibrator this year.

  • Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already.

  • Come hang out with me on Twitter and Instagram.

  • And thanks a ton for watching.

  • I'll see you around.
