You’ll need more horsepower, a better screen, excellent performance and a long-lasting battery. For longer gaming sessions and a faster, more responsive experience, you’ll and to take that next step. Find out whatever you need to know right here.


ASUS ROG Phone 2

This phone represents a notable leap in the quest for a perfect gaming phone. The world’s fastest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 PLus powers the show, with an up to 2.96GHz clock speed for slick performance. This gaming phone also delivers 12GB of RAM and 512GB of UFS storage too. The battery is impressive and there’s the latest Adreno 640 GPU for a fast graphics experience. Connectivity-wise you can benefit from download speeds of up to 2GBps and WiFi speeds of up to 4.6Gbps, so it’s safe to say that this phone certainly stands out from the rest. If you are concerned about graphics then you’ll be glad to know that this phone has an OLED screen that has an impressive 120Hz refresh rate. The shoulder buttons for this phone are air triggers, with camera pairing and a huge range of capabilities that are just not present in other models.

OnePlus 7 Pro

Using slick and power-hungry games isn’t just restricted to an app. As an example, when you go onto a sports casino site, you’ll often see ‘slots bonuses online casino’, or discounts. If you click the advertisement, the phone will then load up the site so that you can take advantage of the deal. However, some phones don’t have a powerful enough processor and the resulting graphic-heavy site will stutter and won’t load properly. This can be frustrating to say the least, but with the OnePlus 7 Pro, you won’t have to worry about that at all. You’ll be able to load up anything you want and without compromise. The device has an AMOLED screen which is nearly 7” in total. It’s also able to offer a 90Hz refresh rate too. We saw it in action at the recent London launch and it was properly impressive. Sure, it might not be quite as powerful as the Razer series but – that being said, it’s far better than most phones out there.

This is a great gaming phone for anyone who is on a budget. The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM and a selfie-shooter too.

Samsung Galaxy S10

Samsung’s early flagships are not branded as being gaming phones, but the company have changed their creative focus to try and offer models that have tons of gaming-related features. They are trying to keep up with the demand and so far, they are doing a great job. All three S10 models are able to offer the Game Launcher and even the Game Tools option. This gives you the chance to tweak your performance in individual games. The Game Tools suite also lets you record videos too. When you look at the hardware, you will soon see that you can choose between the Exynos 9820 or even the Snapdragon 855. This alone gives you a huge range of customisation that isn’t really seen in other mobile phones.

So, there are plenty of phones out there that you can use to game and you would be surprised at how easy it is for you to take advantage of some of the many features that are out there.
