The Razer Phone is now available for slightly cheaper than it cost at launch. The device launched with an MSRP of US$700 but potential buyers can now get it for $100 less. The deal has been on for the past two days but will end on April 24.

The Razer Phone was released towards the end of last year as Razer's first attempt at making a gaming phone. Of course, that market looks to be quite redundant—consdering the current lack of great Android games and the nature of Android hardware—but other OEMs look set to do similar. The device is now available for US$100 less than it was at launch.

The Razer Phone performed quite well in our review, a total score of 88 making it a fine option in its weight class but still below devices like the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The device's best feature is its display. Its 5.7-inch QHD 120 Hz panel makes for incredibly brilliant viewing, since most other smartphones are stuck with 60 Hz panels. 

That aside, the Razer Phone is powered by a Snapdragon 835—a last-gen SoC at this point. It features 8 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a 4000 mAh battery, and a dual rear camera setup. Speaking of cameras, the Razer phone's cameras have received some flak for not being as good as they should—something we've also heard about the Essential PH-1's—but the company has pushed out updates since then and enthusiasts should be able to install the Google Camera that massively improves performance.

Meanwhile, the Razer Phone has received the update to Android 8.1, and now has its kernel sources and factory images available to the public.

To get the US$100 discount, add the device to your cart and apply the coupon code "120HZ".
