Deal | The Razer Phone 2 is now available for US$500
Razer kicked off the trend of dedicated gaming Android devices in 2017 with the first-gen Razer Phone. The company followed it up with a second-generation offering last year, and that device can now be had for significantly less than its launch price.
The Razer Phone 2 launched with a US$800 MSRP but can now be bought for US$500 on Amazon, and even US$450 if you can stomach the thought of buying it with an open box. The past week saw the influx of Snapdragon 855-powered flagships, which means that it’s now the best time to snag a last-gen flagship for cheap.
The Razer Phone 2 is a solid device by most metrics. It features a 5.72-inch QHD+ LCD panel. That display is the Razer 2’s biggest selling point, as it also has a refresh rate of 120 Hz, impressive considering most other flagships make do with 60 Hz panels.
It sports 8 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a Snapdragon 845, a dual rear camera setup (12 MP + 12 MP), an 8 MP selfie shooter, a 4000 mAh battery with 18W fast-charge support, and IP67 certification. Not a bad deal for US$500.
