A powerful processor, a powerful camera or an attractive design, are elements that most consider when choosing a smart phone. But it is not the only thing if you are looking for a phone to play fluently. That they know very well gamers more acrrimos, that stop in more specific aspects, like the frequency of update of the screen. With the growth of the services of streaming of video games, which allow you to continue with your game anywhere, this is a greater need. Therefore, we select the best phones for games that you can find in the market today.
This phone not only has the new Apple A12 Bionic processor, which is worth noting that it is the most powerful mobile processor we have ever seen, but also has excellent performance, and even the most demanding 3D games are seen dominated by Apple hardware.
The iPhone XS is not your only Apple option. If you are looking for a larger screen with the same hardware, the iPhone XS Max has a 6.5-inch screen that will surely satisfy you. For its part, the iPhone XR offers a 6.1-inch screen and the same powerful processor for $ 750 dollars, although it is reduced to an LCD screen. (/ Aside)
The OLED technology "Super Retina" is back on the iPhone XS, and that means you get a beautiful, clear and colorful image in any application. Being the smallest of the iPhone XS range, the XS is the perfect size to have it on hand for long periods of time, and the 5.8-inch screen offers plenty of space even for the busiest gaming interfaces.
For the moments when you can't play any games (we know, it happens to all of us), the iPhone XS also comes with an incredible camera, so you can document your feats unrelated to the games.
Although they are few, the iPhone XS also has its disadvantages. The 2,658 mAh battery lasts a day in normal use, but extended gaming sessions will probably deplete it much faster. Nor does it come with a fast charger in the box, so be slower to recharge it when it is empty. It is also extremely expensive, since it starts at $ 999 dollars. Still, for iOS games, you won't find a better option.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
The Galaxy S10 Plus is the culmination of years of work for Samsung, and is simply one of the best phones in the world right now. Rene a whole galaxy of wonderful features in its smooth body of magnificent design.
But what really matters to the players is their power. The Galaxy S10 Plus comes with the Snapdragon 855, which gives the phone a lot of processing power. I handled all the games we tested with ease. We chose the Galaxy S10 Plus over the standard S10 because the Plus version has a larger screen, but since they both come with the Snapdragon 855 and 8GB of RAM, any of the models play most modern games without problems.
Your Amoled screen is another magnificent work, with deep and vibrant colors and dark blacks. It is also strong, and the Quad HD + screen should have no trouble seeing each other, even in direct sunlight. Storage starts at 128 GB, but there is the option to increase it with a MicroSD card, and beware, Samsung still includes the 3.5 jack jack, so it can be charged while using wired headphones. There is also a big battery in this phone, although you can expect the games to have a large consumption. A triple lens versatile main camera and a selfie Dual lens front complete a fantastic phone.
Is not perfect. The sound during the games is good thanks to its stereo speakers, although the location and bass is not the best. It is also too easy to accidentally touch and activate the screen, and it is expensive. But if you are looking for the best Android phone for games, here it is.
Asus Zenfone 6
A Snapdragon 855 processor with 8GB of RAM ensures that the Zenfone 6 is fast and powerful enough to run any title you want to play. There is ample storage space of 256 GB and for expansion with a MicroSD card. There is also a 3.5mm headphone port, so you can listen and charge at the same time. The Zenfone 6 is a large phone, which allows you to store a 5,000mAh battery, ideal for longer gaming sessions.
By adopting an unusual flip camera, Asus managed to offer a 6.4-inch screen without notches or holes, although unfortunately it is an LCD screen and not OLED. It is good enough, but it is not the brightest in the world. However, their cameras respond very well.
Some things are missing, such as wireless charging and water resistance, and the design seems a bit outdated apart from that motorized flip-up camera, but the big attraction with the Zenfone 6 is its low price.
Asus Rog Phone
Directly from armed arm games From Asus comes the Players' Republic (ROG, for its acronym in English), the phone that does not seek to hide its game influences. Take a look at the Asus ROG phone and it is clear that it is a device designed for players, with hard lines, precise cuts and an illuminated logo. It is loud, and we love that. If you want subtleties, this is not the phone for you.
Like many phones on this list, you will find the powerful Snapdragon 845 here. However, Asus has adjusted it, increasing the clock speed of the processor to 2.96GHz from the usual 2.8GHz. That increase in speed seems to make a difference in and out of games, and it means that the ROG phone is one of the softest Android we've used since Pixel 3. As expected, the ROG phone performs perfectly with games and It also comes with some special features, such as a flexible body that enables phone AirTriggers.
It has good cameras, and although it will not overcome the best phones of today, it should be good enough for most people. The 4,000mAh battery has the potential to last a couple of days, depending on the use you give it, of course, but obviously you find that the games spend a lot.
Unfortunately, it will cost you $ 900 to take the plunge, but that entry model comes with a whopping 128 GB of storage, so it's not such a terrible price. If you wish, you can get the $ 512 model for $ 1,100, but 128 GB should be enough. The Asus ROG phone is definitely one of the best dedicated gaming phones on the market.
Razer Phone 2
The first Razer Phone was responsible for the revolution of gaming phones, so it makes sense that its successor, the Razer Phone 2, appears on this list. Razer redesigned his device to address some important problems, such as his poor camera. Was it successful? Not at all. The camera is at the lower end for a flagship phone at this price level. But still it is a great option for games.
The main reason is its visualization technology. Like the first version, the Razer Phone 2 comes equipped with the Ultramotion 120Hz screen. That implies that the images are updated faster than almost any other device, providing a remarkable improvement in softness in both games and outdoor use. The screen technology is backed by a Snapdragon 845 processor and 8 GB of RAM, giving it the power to be a relevant actor. The speakers are also among the clearest and strongest we have tested.
The design was also renewed. A layer of glass was added on the back, which allows wireless charging. The 4,000 mAh battery should allow you to reach the full day quite easily, even with moderate use of games. QuickCharge 4.0+ support also means that you should be connected to the outlet for long periods.
It is not perfect and lacks a camera capable of competing with other phone badges, but with a reduced price, it is worth checking out the Razer Phone 2.
OnePlus 7 Pro
One Pro 7 Plus | Best games phones The OnePlus 7 Pro has all the features of an excellent game phone, and still manages to be cheaper than much of the competition.
It has a huge 6.67-inch Amoled screen, which is free of notches or holes. It offers a sharp resolution of 3,140 x 1,440 pixels with HDR10 + support and provides a refresh rate of 90Hz. In addition, its Oxygen operating system was adjusted to take full advantage of these features.
With the Snapdragon 855 processor as standard for all its levels, you can choose between three options: 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage; 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB; or 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. According to our benchmark tests, the OnePlus 7 Pro is the fastest phone.
The battery has a capacity of 4,000 mAh, enough to enjoy many games. In addition, it is compatible with Warp Charge, which takes its charge from zero to 50% in just 20 minutes. Its features are complemented by a triple lens main camera and a popup for 16 megapixel selfies, although some problems in the application prevent it from reaching higher levels of performance.
Anyway, if you want a solid and versatile phone, the OnePlus 7 Pro is a great option.
Red magic 3
The Red Magic 3 is a phone for large games, which has it all. Its angular and metallic Nubia design includes an RGB lighting strip on the back, air vents for the fan and a pair of programmable touch-sensitive buttons. Its 6.65-inch Amoled display offers a refresh rate of 90Hz, and although the resolution is only 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, it offers excellent lighting.
The performance is perfect, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor backed by 8 GB of RAM. It also has a dedicated game mode, which is activated with a switch located next to it. This button turns on the fan, to avoid overheating, which allows you to increase the performance of the CPU, GPU or both. 4D Shock mode adds vibration for some games, such asPUBG Mobile. Other titles likeShadowgun: Legends,Asphalt 8,Galaxy ReaversandInjustice 2 They also had the best graphic quality.
The 5,000 mAh battery provides more durability, although the large screen and the fan, along with a demanding game, will drain it quickly. Dual front speakers are powerful, which gives you a dive fee. Anyway, if you want to connect your own headphones, it has a 3.5mm audio jack.
The Red Magic 3 also has a 48-megapixel rear camera and a 16-megapixel front camera. The basic version has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, but the special model has 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
