Gaming on mobile phones has come a long way from the days of ‘Snake’, with most smartphones now able to boast graphics and performance levels which would have been a stretch even for computers and laptops a decade ago.
Nowadays, the popularity of mobile gaming, and esports in general, has meant that there are dedicated gaming phones out on the market, to follow the gaming laptops and PCs that have been around for a while. These phones have hardware and software features tailored towards maximising gaming output and ensuring that the experience is as good as it can be while playing games on these phones.
They have better refresh rates, more powerful processors, bigger screens, cooling systems, and even trigger buttons and toggles to make them feel like console controllers. This part of the market has seen a surge in recent months as well, as due to the pandemic, more people have shown interest in esports.
Winz.io commented recently, stating that the various lock-downs globally due to the COVID-19 pandemic led to more people using mobile phones for entertainment, including gaming, and even online gambling and casinos, since land-based casinos were shut. Thus, it is important for people looking to buy gaming phones this year to look for the best features and options out there to give themselves the best gaming experience possible.
Thus, here are some of the best gaming phones to look out for in 2020:
Nubia Red Magic 5G
This phone is excellent for gaming, even though it comes short on some other aspects. It has a 144Hz screen, making it one of the first phones in the world to do so, and the software backs it up, making it ideal for gaming as it delivers a very smooth experience.
There are shoulder trigger buttons, a liquid cooling system and a fan to make this phone appealing for gaming fans, while it also has a ‘4D Shock’ feature which adds vibrations at key moments, and a ‘Game Space’ to let players customise their gaming preferences.
It comes with the Snapdragon 865 processor, RAM of up to 12 GB, and a 4,500mAh battery, all of which ensure that gaming will be immensely enjoyable on this phone. With an 8MP front camera, and three rear cameras (64MP + 8MP + 2 MP), it can also be used for photography or video calling while gaming, making it one of the best options on the market this year.
Asus ROG Phone 3
The ROG line from Asus has a reputation as being as gamer-centric as they come, and while it was limited to laptops so far, Asus has now moved into the mobile gaming space as well. It has some truly top-tier components, boasting the new Snapdragon 865 Plus processor and a 144Hz AMOLED screen, which is 6.59 inches large, with up to 16 GB of RAM as well.
Additionally, the battery comes in at a whopping 6,000mAh, meaning that you are unlikely to run out of juice anytime soon, even after a long gaming session. The phone comes with a clip-on fan included in the box, while other accessories such as gamepads need to be bought separately. Users can also customize the experience, with software allowing them to overclock the CPU or adjust the fan speed if they need to do so.
While there are other features which could put off buyers, this is as dedicated a gaming phone as they come, and if that is all that you are looking for, the Asus ROG Phone 3 is the one to get in 2020.
These are the top two gaming phones to look out for this year, while there are a bunch of non-gaming phones, such as the new iPhone and the OnePlus 8T, which will do a pretty decent job while gaming, due to their high-end parts and specs.
