Razer Phone has major discount ahead of successor launch

From the official source



Just as Razer subtly announced that the Razer Phone 2 is on the way, their original Razer Phone is experiencing a major discount on the company’s website.

Go the Razer Phone’s official product page, and you’ll be greeted by this text:

“Limited time offer: Get US$ 300 off your Razer Phone. Use Code WOOHOO on cart.”

This deal brings Razer’s one and only phone down to just US$ 399 from its original US$ 699 price tag. That’s a discount of about 42 percent!

That’s great for a gamer-centric smartphone with hardware that’s still competitive with this year’s best. However, Razer didn’t specify how long this promotion will last.

In our own review, we praised the Razer Phone for its great balance of power and entertainment features, as well as the long-lasting battery and incredible display.

Even if the Razer Phone 2 is bound to show up soon, grabbing the first-gen model at this price is a steal.

OPPO Find X2 Pro: Globe vs Smart postpaid plans comparison



OPPO’s Find X series has always been about delivering the latest and greatest specs. The OPPO Find X2 Pro is a continuation of that trend. Now, it’s coming to the Philippines. It will retail at all OPPO physical stores. It will also be available as a postpaid device for both Globe and Smart.

To help you decide which is better for you, we’ve come up with a postpaid plan comparison for both telcos. We will base the comparison for both telcos on the postpaid plan that will give the perfect balance of what you get from what you will pay for.

As such, we’re picking Globe’s ThePlan 1999 and Smart’s Signature Plan L. It is important to note that Globe only offers a one-time cashout option while Smart offers both a one-time cashout and a staggered payment option for the OPPO Find X2 Pro. For the purpose of this comparison, we’ll choose the one-time cashout option for both telcos.

Without further ado, let’s compare the plans:

Plan Comparison

Globe Smart
Plan Name ThePlan 1999 Signature Plan L
Data 16 GB 15 GB
Text Unlimited to all networks Unlimited to all networks
  • 150 mins. to any network
  • Unlimited to Globe/TM
  • 150 mins. to any network
  • Unlimited to Smart/Sun
Device Fee  PhP 28,800.00 PhP 31,200
Monthly Fee PhP 1,999 PhP 1,999
  • Free 1 GB of Facebook monthly
  • 6-month Amazon Prime Video subscription
  • 3-month iflix VIP subscription
  • Free shipping
  • Free shipping
Contract Period 24 months 24 months
Total Cash-out Cost PhP 30,799 PhP 33,199

On cost and freebies alone, Globe wins this comparison. You are getting more when you avail Globe’s postpaid plan for this device. If you’re a heavy user of Facebook and Amazon Prime Video, you’ll really get the most out of ThePlan 1999 than Smart’s current offering. Plus, the lower overall cost makes Globe’s offering much more attractive if you want to get the most out of your postpaid plan.

However, that is not to say that you should avoid Smart altogether. Smart’s Signature Plan is better than ever, with exclusive perks and exclusives through the MVP Rewards. Plus, there are some areas in the country where Smart’s coverage is way better than Globe’s. If you live in these areas, it’s much better to avail of Smart’s offering.
