Razer Phone price drops to $549 at Microsoft and Amazon
While Razer is reportedly readying the release of a brand new Android smartphone, the company's first handset - simply called Razer Phone - can now be purchased for only $549.99 ($150 off the regular price). This new price is currently available only at Microsoft and Amazon, not directly at Razer, which is still asking $699.99 for the device. Nevertheless, both Microsoft and Amazon are official resellers of the Razer Phone, so you're definitely getting US warranty with the handset.

The Razer Phone will be 1 year old in November, but it remains a high-end, powerful gaming phone. Its highlight features include a 5.7-inch Quad HD display with high refresh rate, 8 GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 835 CPU, stereo speakers, and a 4,000 mAh battery.

Microsoft says it'll be selling the Razer Phone for $150 off only until September 8 (online and in retail stores across the US). Amazon, however, seems to have permanently cut the price to $549.99. 

If you're interested in buying Razer's first smartphone, you can find it at the source links below. Just keep in mind that the handset is compatible only with carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T, so it can't be used on Verizon, Sprint, or US Cellular.

$549 with Last year processor, bad camera, no waterproofing, no headphone jack.... Maybe next year Razer.

i wouldn't brush off a phone because it uses last year's CPU, if someone swapped out the 845 in your phone for an 835 i guarantee you wouldn't be able to tell. the other cons are spot on though

Damn right. You might even get better battery management and less overheating as well.

Camera and screen brightness need to be updated. Those are my major complaints, the battery was awesome and the phone feels sturdy. Surprisingly sucked for games though, like Pubg (because of the brightness and it would dim after like 2 minutes of play)

Not bad at all. I still paid less for mine from Amazon Warehouse but it was used. Brand new at this price is a great buy for those interested
