Gaming has become one of the most popular hobbies this year, especially as lockdown measures have meant that people have had to stay indoors as much as possible. Along with this, the increasing availability of cheap smartphones and high-speed internet has caused a rise in the number of people who play games on their mobile phones as well. We have seen how many game studios have begun creating mobile versions of their bestselling games, along with games exclusive to mobiles, in order to cater to this growing market. At the same time, phone manufacturers are also catching on, and are releasing gaming phones, much in the same way as we already have gaming laptops, and dedicated gaming consoles.
Gaming phones can help improve the gaming experience multifold, as they have the best processors, RAM and other components which are important to run the best games well. Even online, for online casino live games, for example, gaming phones can make a difference, with faster response times and better graphics allowing casino players to be able to fully immerse themselves in the gameplay. We will now take a look at some of the best gaming phones coming up in 2020.
The Razer Phone 2 will be the best gaming phone for most people, with a brighter screen, louder speakers and much more power than its predecessor, the Razer Phone. It has a 5.7-inch display, boasting a 120Hz refresh rate and a screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels, meaning that games will look sharp and crisp on this phone. A Snapdragon 845 processor and 8 GB of RAM provide the power, while an improved cooling system will allow them to be able to work at their fullest without heating the phone to unbearable levels.
Asus ROG Phone II
Asus has a reputation for some of the best gaming laptops in the market with its ROG line, and it is bringing that expertise to the smartphone world with the ROG line of mobile phones now. These phones will appeal to hardcore gamers, but are significantly more expensive than regular phones, and so represent the high-end option on this list. The ROG Phone II has a customised cooling case, which allows the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor and 12 GB of RAM to really get to work. There are a number of nifty little features which will be attractive to gamers, such as the dedicated X Mode which will divert resources to ensure the best gaming experience, to the fact that the charging and audio ports are on the side of the phone, which will allow players to hold it in landscape mode easily. It has a 6.59-inch screen running at a refresh rate of 120Hz, while the huge 6,000mAh battery will allow high-end gaming for hours on end.
Xiaomi Black Shark 3
From the high-end option, we come to the budget gaming phone. However, the Black Shark 3 does not skimp on the features, and so it is still an excellent gaming phone without even considering the price. It has the top-end Snapdragon 865 processor, with 8GB and 12GB RAM variants. A 6.67-inch screen with superb resolution will bring games to life, while it also has an advanced cooling system to help cope during extended gaming sessions. The 4720mAh battery will also aid such long usage times, while Xiaomi also has some impressive accessories for this phone, including a clip-on charger that can allow you to continue playing while charging, and a gamepad which will make gaming much easier without needing to touch the screen.
