Gaming Smartphones

From Xiaomi,Razer to Asus.These are the Mobile phones that can ultimately enhance your Gaming skills. Why are these mobile phones so unique. To find out, continue reading this article?

Smartphones have also become a key player in the gaming world compared to PCs and gaming consoles in recent years. The competition between different industries is becoming stiff. Games are becoming more complex graphically. Therefore gamers are required to have powerful gadgets or hardware as an advantage.

The gaming market is growing stronger and stronger every day. According to research carried out by Zenesys, Games streamed and played using smartphones generate 51% of the revenue gathered from the entire gaming market. Remember that Gaming Arena consists of PC gaming and consoles.

To have a good gaming experience while using pc or consoles, particular demands must be met. This is also similar to our mobile phones. Every smartphone user can play any game on his or her phone. For example, Candy Crush. But what of competitions such as Genshin Impact, League of Legends Mobile, PUBG Mobile, or even Fortnite games that require a high performing device that is more modern or a phone with table frames per second (FPS)?.

Depending on the equipment and manufacturer of gaming smartphones, prices do vary. A good gaming smartphone will cost between 500 to 1000 euros(KES 65,200 to KES 130,401). For most of the mobile phones, we do write and review here at Techmoran. We do drive our conclusion, too. The more memory a device has, the more expensive it is. However, for Gaming smartphones, two features play a significant role: a high display frame rate and a fast processor.

The processor used in gaming phones: Snapdragon, Exynos, and Apple A14

Android smartphones rely primarily on Qualcomm chipsets with Adreno GPU. The fastest Qualcomm processor at this time is the Snapdragon 888. Samsung depends on the in-house Exynos 2100 with Mali GPU, which you can currently find in the Galaxy S21.

However, for the iPhones, Tim Cook ad his team prefer to do things differently. The iPhones rely on their manufactured chip, the Apple A14. The processor competes very well with the android processors, and even higher older models such as the Apple A11 or even the Apple A13 are still competent.

Hertz number is more important than resolution in terms of the screen display.

Technology is constantly changing. The same applies to smartphones over the years. Since mobile phone displays are comparatively small, even FullHD (1080p) even low resolutions look very good. However, much more critical is the Hertz frequency, which the screen can display on the mobile phone. The faster the display, the better the image quality, and the faster information is shared.

Difference between Hertz and sampling rate

For those who have tried the mobile gaming experience for that long. I am sure the word sampling is a common term to you. Just like the refresh rate, the sampling rate is also measured in Hertz. However, the two aren’t similar. Refresh rate is responsible for the display, while sampling rate takes care of input processing speed. The higher the sampling rate, the faster a collection reacts to your finger and the input made

This allows low-refresh smartphones to feel much more fluid than they are. Gestures and inputs are also processed faster, which can be an advantage in games.

Difference between mobile and Gaming Smartphone.

Mobile games can run on any platform for so long as it is the mobile phone. However, mobile phones have limiting features such as a low-level processor. On the other hand, gaming smartphones offer all sorts of additional features that you can’t find elsewhere.

4. Lenovo Legion Duel

Lenovo’s Legion Duel is one of the gaming smartphones from the previous year, so it’s still relying on a Snapdragon 865+. However, with at least 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, it still provides enough power and space. The AMOLED display is sufficiently large at around 6.7 inches and very fast at 144 Hertz.

Meanwhile, Lenovo has introduced the Legion Phone Duel 2. It features a Snapdragon 888 processor, an improved front camera, and a new cooling system. However, the mobile phone will not go on sale until May. 

5. Apple iPhone 12 Series

Apple’s iPhone 12 series offers only 60 Hertz for its AMOLED displays, but the Apple A14 gives you the fastest processor on the market right now. Suppose you need the shortest loading times and the most admirable graphics. In that case, you can hardly avoid Apple’s devices, mainly since the gaming service Apple Arcade also contains the most graphically complex games.
