Our phones have evolved into devices which double up as mini-entertainment units and are not restricted to calling alone. Because of the portability smartphones offer in comparison to desktops and laptops, they are perfect for those who like to indulge in gaming on the go. It is no surprise then that 90% of the 400 million gamers in India consider mobile phones as their preferred gaming device.
Buying a gaming phone is not that difficult however it does require some deliberation. After all the main intent of purchase is exceptional gaming performance. So you definitely would not like to compromise on the speed, performance and overall user experience.
While gaming can be performed on almost any phone, there are a few phones which focus on areas which would matter more to gamers like immersive display, faster storage, cooling technology and higher RAM to support improved gaming. There are many upcoming mobiles in 2021 which boast of best gaming features and solid performance across varying price segments.
Below are the instances when you should go for an exclusive gaming phone.
- You don’t want to splurge on a playstation
Gaming PCs and consoles like the Xbox series or the Sony PlayStation series are still considered luxuries in many households. On the contrary, gaming on your phone is more pocket-friendly and provides an easier entry into the ecosystem for first-timers.
The Poco X3 Pro is one of the best gaming phones in the budget phone segment. At a price of just Rs 18999, this phone comes with a 120Hz IPS LCD screen, stereo speakers, a powerful Snapdragon 860 processor, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, massive 5160 mah battery, and a dedicated headphone jack and could be one of the most upcoming gaming mobiles in 2021 for the thrifty gamer.
- You desire fluid performance
Gaming on phones can be equally enthralling if you have the right configuration. The two components which have a direct impact on gaming performance include the processor chipset and RAM. Snapdragon 800 series are the most preferred chipsets for gaming. While a 8 GB RAM is the minimum RAM which would allow most games to run smoothly. However if you are looking to play graphic-intensive games, a 16 GB RAM could be ideal in today’s gaming landscape.
The Asus ROG 5 is one of the best upcoming gaming phones launched in March 2021 and comes with the most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor with a 8 GB RAM and 6000 mah battery to make every gaming session scintillating.
- You indulge in marathon gaming sessions
If your phone is going to be running games, it is going to get hot, and that will require good cooling before the heat starts affecting the performance of your processor. This process is called throttling and is something gamers look to stay away from. Many phones targeted at gaming will have some advanced forms of cooling mechanism inside the device. The Vivo IQ007 Legend is one of the best gaming phones and stands out from the rest. The smartphone recently made its debut in the country, with Snapdragon 888 processor at its core, 120 Hz AMOLED display and a 4,096sqmm vapour chamber which will ensure the device is not heated during extended gaming sessions.
- You want to enjoy the visual appeal of gaming with a pocket device
For your games to look good, it is imperative that you have a higher resolution screen. More importantly, modern screens on gaming phones will also come with 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rate. The higher refresh rates can be beneficial on games where every frame counts while making split-second decisions. The Xiaomi Mi 11X is an upcoming gaming phone in India and comes with a 6.67 inch AMOLED bezel-less display, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset ensuring high-class gaming and multitasking experience and 108 MP front camera.
- You want to enjoy gaming anytime and everywhere
When you go for a good gaming phone, you are going to get the benefit of an excellent processor and features in a portable device which can be carried anywhere and everywhere. For instance the Realme X3 is a well-balanced phone under 25000 which sports a 120Hz LCD screen, 64MP wide camera, 12MP 2x zoom camera, and an 8MP ultra wide camera. The Snapdragon 855+ processor inside the Realme X3 is adequate for playing any high-end game.
