Lockdown 4.0 has started, with this lockdown the sale of non-essential goods has been allowed across India. Yes, now e-commerce websites like Amazon India and Flipkart can sell smartphones, laptops, or any other tech gadgets all over India except the containment zones and following all the guidelines issued by MHA. So, I know that many of you have been waiting for this day so that you can order your smartphone.
This article is for gamers and all those who are looking for the best gaming smartphone. In this article, I am going to list the best gaming smartphones that you can buy. Picking a good gaming smartphone is difficult at this time when we have so many powerful smartphones in the market.
Best Gaming Smartphones to Buy
Honor 9X Pro
Picking the best gaming smartphone, our first priority should be the processor and GPU. Honor 9X Pro is the best option for gamers present in the market right now and yes it is a competitive contender for best gaming smartphones. The smartphone is powered by a powerful Kirin 810 chipset that can transcend any other processors and smartphone in the price bracket. Kirini 810 is an octa-core chipset that is built on 7nm fabrication which enhances its battery efficiency.
This powerful processor has a clock speed of up to 2.3 GHz coupled with a powerful GPU Mali G52 dashing at 850 MHz. The hardware talks a lot about the performance of this device, this chipset gives you the flagship-level experience. Better gaming experience in best gaming smartphones required less heating and a better cooling system and honor 9x pro comes with liquid cooling technology that makes your gaming experience more dynamic.
Coming to the other specification of the smartphone, we have a 6.3 inches Full view display, and personally I feel this display gives more liberal gaming experience. Apart from this, we have a triple camera setup at back including 48 Megapixel primary sensor, 8 Megapixel wide-angle lens, and 2 Megapixel depth sensor. It has a 16 Megapixel pop up selfie camera.
In the software arena, the smartphone is running on Android 9 (which is upgradable to Android 10) based on EMUI 9. But there is no Google Play Service, alternatively, we get an App Gallery which has almost 95% apps that are available in google play store. So there is no major difference in terms of App collections. We have a 4000 mAh battery, but as we mention Kirin 810 is a very efficient chipset so you will get a good battery backup.
A masterpiece from Poco, after years of long break Poco finally introduced its smartphone in the mid-range segment, and absolutely this is a killer device. Poco X2 packs almost every feature that can attract any user. Poco X2 comes with a powerful gaming chipset from Qualcomm and is one of the best gaming smartphones. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, which is an octa-core chipset having clock speed up to 2.3 GHz and is manufactured on 8nm fabrication. Snapdragon 730G is a very powerful gaming chipset, we can play heavy titles like PUBG and Call of Duty at high FPS & graphic setting without any lag.
Poco X2 brings a flagship feature of 120 Hertz refresh rate display in this segment and in essence it changes the gaming experience. Recently Poco X2 push an update that allows changing refresh rate to 90 Hertz which makes both gaming experience seamless and battery efficient. A 6.67 inches big display with a dual punch-hole cutout gives immersive look, but overall I think it is quite big.
Coming to the other aspect of the device, we got a Quad camera setup at the back that encompasses 64 Megapixel Sony IMX 686 sensor, 8 Megapixel wide range lens, 2 Megapixel depth sensor and 2 Megapixel macro lens. We have a dual selfie camera setup that is 20 Megapixel primary sensor and 2 Megapixel depth sensor.
It has a 4500 mAh massive battery that can be charge through 27 Watt fast charger. Talking about the software department, it is running on MiUi 11 based on Android 10. Most probable it will get MiUi 12 update by August. MiUi 11 running on the phone is Ad free which improves the overall experience.
Realme 6 is the only device launch by Realme this year in the mid-range segment that can I say is killer device and value for money. Realme 6 powered by a MediaTek Helio G90T chipset which is an octa-core processor built on 12 nm fabrication and has a clock speed up to 2.2 GHz. This processor by MediTek is the perfect treat for gamers. Taking about the gaming experience, we can play PUBG in HDR and Ultra FPS. Thus I have to add this smartphone in the list of best gaming smartphones.
Not only is it allowed to play in this setting but the gaming experience is also smooth and lag-free. There is no doubt that the MediaTek chipset has improved a lot over the years, thus smartphone makers like Realme and Xiaomi are using their chipsets in their popular series.
Realme 6 comes with a 6.5 inches display that provides you 90 Hertz refresh rate experience. Also, the single punch hole cutout not looks weird as in Poco X2. Talking about the optics of smartphones, we have a quad camera rear setup that includes 64 Megapixel sensor, 8 Megapixel wide-angle lens, 2 Megapixel depth sensor, and 2 Megapixel macro lens. It has a 16 Megapixel selfie camera.
From a software point of view, it running on Realme UI V 1.0 based on Android 10. Realme Ui is a better option than Color OS and personally, I like the UI, yes it needs a lot of improvement but I think it is a good alternative. Realme 6 has a 4300 mAh battery which can be charged through a 30 W Supper VOOC 3.0 charger.
So, here are our top 3 picks for best gaming smartphones under the mid-range segment. I try to showcase smartphones of different chipsets and powerful right now in this segment. Apart from that, I don’t feel any smartphone that is right now better than these devices.
