Best Gaming Phones

The best gaming phones are also one of the best ‘consoles’ you can get. But that kind of experience requires some serious power, for which you benefit from having one of the best gaming phones. But there’s more than just having the best specifications. Phones are equipped with hardware and software features such as touch-sensitive triggers and in-game settings that take playing to another level. These phones have a better display refresh rate, screen size, game modes, and cooling systems than average handsets, which tend to focus more directly on phones built with gaming in mind.

Companies like Razer and Asus – names that gamers are probably very familiar with by now – have lent out their expertise in this area to produce targeted, gaming-focused handsets. But also the latest flagships from Samsung and OnePlus, with their leading specs, are very suitable for demanding titles.

Best Gaming Phones

We have compiled a list of best gaming phones, such as the Nubia Red Magic 5G, Asus ROG 3, Black Shark 2, and Razer Phone 2, which are the best gaming phones on the market. However, you don’t need a dedicated gaming phone to play on the go. If you prefer a more mainstream device, many of the best phones for gaming are simply high-end handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S20 range, the OnePlus 8 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro.

Asus ROG Phone 3

The best gaming phone right now

The Asus ROG Phone 3 remains a phone with all the extras a mobile gamer needs, including a stunningly large 6,000mAh battery (for extended gaming sessions), and a smooth 144Hz AMOLED screen, in a large 6.59-inch format. Add to that truly top tier specification, with the combination of a Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset, up to 16GB of RAM, and tons of storage, and you can see why the Asus ROG Phone 3 makes our list.

It’s designed specifically for gamers and also has features you won’t find on most other phones, such as a clip-on fan, which is generously included in the box, and a range of other accessories (such as a gamepad), which you’ll have to buy separately. There is also built-in software to help you customize your gaming experience, for example by overclocking the already fleshy CPU and adjusting the fan speed.

There are some omissions in the Asus ROG Phone 3, but most of them do not affect gaming. For example, it has no wireless charging or water resistance, and the design will certainly divide it. If all you want your phone for is gaming, and you either like this design or don’t care much, then the Asus ROG Phone 3 is the gaming phone to beat.

The Nubia Red Magic 5G has the world’s first 144Hz smartphone screen, which makes it ideal for gaming because it’s a silky smooth refresh rate. But that’s not the only thing that makes it ideal for gaming. In fact, it’s specially designed for this pastime, with shoulder pullers to give you more control, a fan and a liquid cooling system to keep the handset cool under pressure, a special ‘Game Space’ to let you customize your gaming experience and a ‘4D Shock’ function that adds vibration to games.

The latter function is not supported by many titles at the time of writing, nor is the 144Hz display, but if game developers embrace them this could be a serious future-proof phone. It also supports 5G of course and has plenty of power. It’s just a little let down by a 1080 x 2340 screen, which is not among the sharpest around, along with some software flaws and a design that will sow discord. Overall, this is one of the best gaming phones right now.

Razer Phone 2 (New): Unlocked Gaming Smartphone – 120Hz QHD Display –...

Last update was on: 2020-11-27 8:09 am

The first Razer Phone was a solid first attempt to bring the gamer specific brand to a mobile device, but it had a few flaws that dropped it further down our list. The second version has addressed some and come up with a stronger device for it, although it’s still primarily aimed at gamers. What does that mean? The camera and display are not nearly as impressive as other phones that are so expensive, so casual gamers might want to look elsewhere. But if you’re serious about mobile gaming and can afford it, this is a good choice.

Outwardly, the Razer Phone 2 hasn’t changed much from its predecessor, although it has been upgraded to the Snapdragon 845 chip and switched to a glass back for wireless Qi charging. It has also added a smooth vapor chamber to cool the device as your game. At the end of the day, the phone’s beefy chipset, 8GB RAM, large speakers, 120hz refresh rate screen, and 4,000mAh battery, as well as extensive settings to tweak battery life and performance, make this one of the best gaming phones.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra may not look much like a gaming phone, but rest assured – this is one of the most powerful phones on the market, with the most advanced display you’ll find that can scale up to a maximum of 120Hz or up to 30Hz or 60Hz to match the frame rate of the content on screen.

But the Note 20 Ultra is more than just a powerful flagship; it is optimized for streaming Xbox titles, via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and can even throw games to external displays via Samsung’s DeX interface and Miracast. No matter what you play or how you play it, the Note 20 Plus’ Snapdragon 865 Plus and 12GB of RAM ensure smooth experience – as long as you have a stable internet connection for streaming, of course.

You won’t find the same level of gamer-focused features in the latest high-end Note as you’d expect from the ROG Phone 3, such as clip-on external cooling fans and customizable air triggers. But if you need a powerful phablet for both work and play, there’s no choice more versatile than the Note 20 Ultra. It’s worth noting that the $999, 6.7-inch Galaxy Note 20 is also a great device, although it only peaks at a 60Hz refresh rate. Overall, this is one of the best gaming phones right now.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max is in a few ways the bigger, better brother of Apple’s latest flagship smartphone, but if you choose either model for gaming, you might as well go with the best. The iPhone 11 Pro Max’s 6.5-inch screen is larger than its 5.8-inch brother, and its larger battery lasts longer than the standard iPhone 11 Pro. Those perks give you more of a head start than the iPhone 11 Pro, but both benefit from the real advantage of this Apple phone generation: the A13 Bionic processor.

In our tests, it charged Clash Royale and PUBG even faster (vs. the iPhone X), and speed is crucial in online gaming. All this in the sleek, modern look of an Apple – although it’s the most expensive mainstream phone on the market, even before all the bells and whistles have been picked up. Overall, this is one of the best gaming phones right now.

The OnePlus 7 Pro used to be high on this list but has been improved on all important points by the OnePlus 8 Pro, a phone that has all the power you need for games, as well as a screen that helps them look their best. There is a top-end Snapdragon 865 chipset in this phone, along with up to 12GB of RAM, so you get the flagship power. As for the screen, the OnePlus 8 Pro has a 6.78-inch 1440 x 3168 with a 120Hz refresh rate, so it’s big, sharp, and smooth.

5G is also supported, so you can play online without delay wherever you are (as long as there’s only 5G signal), and with its large 4,510mAh battery you’ll be able to play for a long time between charges. When it’s time to charge, you won’t be out of the action for long either, as the OnePlus 8 Pro also supports both fast and wireless charging. Overall, this is one of the best gaming phones that you can buy right now.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 and Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus are obvious inclusions for this list, given that they are the most recent entries in the most talked-about Android flagship range available. However, they are not alone in their name, these phones are really great for games, thanks to the high-quality computer power in their hearts. You get a Snapdragon 865 chipset when you’re in the US, or an Exynos 990 in most other places, and in both cases these are flagship chipsets for smartphones.

You also get 8GB RAM, so not much should slow these phones down. And games will look great because both models have a QHD+ screen with a refresh rate up to 120Hz. They also have large batteries, so you’ll have either 4,000mAh or 4,500mAh to play within the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus respectively.

The Motorola Edge Plus is Motorola’s first top-of-the-range flagship in years, and in many ways, it was worth the wait: the waterfall screen is big and beautiful, the phone has great specifications, and even a new gaming feature has been thrown in: digital trigger buttons hanging over the edge of the screen, just under your fingers. The phone has an impressive set of specifications: a Snapdragon 865 chipset, 12GB RAM, and 256GB storage (unfortunately not expandable).

The 6.7-inch display has a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support, which gives a much sharper image than we would expect from the Full HD Plus (2340 x 1080) screen. And the triple rear camera is guided by a stunning 108MP shooter. The phone’s cheaper sibling, the Motorola Edge, has a few compromises on specifications and is therefore significantly cheaper, starting at £549/$699 (approximately AU$1,015). And yet, it may be available in more places, and still retains many of the best features of the Edge Plus.

While the Motorola Edge ‘only’ supports a display HDR10, a Snapdragon 765G chipset with 6GB of RAM, a 64MP main shooter, and a smaller 4,500mAh battery, in our opinion these are not dealbreakers for the lower price. In addition, the Edge’s 128GB of storage space is expandable via microSD. Overall, this is one of the best gaming phones that you can buy right now.
