Deal: Pick up a Razer Phone for just $599 today ($100 off)

It might not have the fastest silicon anymore, but it's still the only phone with a 120Hz display.

Razer Phone

The Razer Phone isn’t perfect, but it certainly stands out thanks to that 120Hz display. Now’s a good a time as any to buy the handset too, as you can save $100 on your purchase.

The flagship smartphone usually retails for $699, but using the coupon code PHONE100 at checkout will give you a $599 discounted price. It looks like the deal is only valid for today, so you’d better buy it now if you planned to get it.

Released in the second half of 2017, the Razer Phone packs a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of expandable storage. In the screen department, we’ve got a 5.7-inch 1440p LCD display with a 120Hz refresh rate, enabling smoother visuals. A well-sized 4,000mAh battery keeps things chugging along.

The return of gaming phones

The Razer Phone was the first of a new wave of gaming-branded smartphones, recently being joined by the Xiaomi Black Shark and Nubia Red Magic.

The Black Shark has a 2999 yuan (~$479) starting price in China, serving up a new Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6GB to 8GB of RAM, 64GB to 128GB of storage, and a 4,000mAh battery. The Xiaomi phone also comes with an optional gamepad attachment.

Nubia’s Red Magic is currently available for $399 via Indiegogo, packing last year’s Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6GB to 8GB of RAM, 64GB to 128GB of storage, and a 3,800mAh battery.

120Hz adaptive displays: the future or just a gimmick?

Neither Xiaomi nor Nubia’s gaming phones offer a 120Hz display though. In fact, the Razer Phone is still the only 120Hz-enabled smartphone on the market. It emerged last month that Sony tinkered with the technology for its flagship phones, opting against its inclusion due to power considerations.
