If you spend plenty of time playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) or Fortnite on your phone, it might be worth upgrading to something that’ll take your gaming to the next level. I’ve got good news on that front. There’s a massive discount of $300 on the Razer Phone 2, so it’s now down to just $499.

The Razer Phone 2’s a very good looking phone that launched last year. Its super bright (600 nits) 120Hz LCD display and its boxy design might be the most eye-catching things about it, but it’s got a fair bit of muscle under the hood to run graphics-intensive games smoothly. It’ll also handle other apps and functions just as well as any other flagship phone launched late last year.

Specifications

  • Screen: 5.72-inch LDC screen at 1440 x 2560 resolution, with refresh rate up to 120Hz
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Battery: 4,000 mAh, with Qualcomm QuickCharging 4.0+ support
  • Cooling system: Vapor Chamber
  • Rear camera: 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel
  • Front camera: 8-megapixel
  • Internal storage: 64GB
  • Software: Android Oreo 8.1

What’s more, the device sports front-facing stereo speakers and support for HDR shows on Netflix. That’s a bonus if you want to catch an episode of your favorite show in between sessions of Fortnite.
