Manufacturers seek to conquer video game lovers with cell phones that move consoles.
While any major manufacturer will ensure that its flagships are ideal for any gamer, this article focuses on cell phones designed from its design and performance to meet the needs of regular video game users.
Although the offer is not yet as wide as one would expect, and different brands dare to present teams with designs that feature large screens, neon colors and the possibility of adapting modules to “pimp” the phone even more.
Either with a software that includes cutting-edge graphic processing to give the games as much realism as possible or that its memory, response time and refresh rate are sufficient for a performance that does not leave the user stranded in the middle of the game, gamers smartphone manufacturers are clear about what their users expect, which increase more and more without neglecting the demands.
Huawei Mate 20X
A phablet with 7.2-inch Oled screen that promises to “revolutionize the mobile work and entertainment experience” is one of Huawei’s big bets to attract the gamer audience.
As part of its Mate line, the Chinese giant presented earlier this year the Mate 20X phone, which promises players the possibility of “immersing themselves in their own world”, as the team is accompanied by a gamepad that allows the user use a joystick and other complementary controls.
This feature, accompanied by a Turbo 2.0 GPU – which allows faster and more complex games -, dual symmetrical speakers on both sides and a range of up to 40 db to reproduce from serious to high-pitched audios with clarity, richness and depth, make the equipment a comparable option with the Nintendo Switch portable console.
The Mate 20X has a 5,000 mAh battery, a 7 nm Kirin 980 octa core microprocessor and is available in 6 GB and 128 GB versions.
Asus ROG Phone II
The second generation of smartphones of the Asus video game user line, Republic of Gamers (ROG), has as its main promise the performance.
The ROG Phone II, whose battery is 6000mAh, has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor with a speed of up to 2.96GHz and Adreno 640 GPU image processing that provides a speed of up to 675 MHz to make the gaming experience as smooth as it is possible.
In addition, in response to overheating, one of the main problems of gamers, the mobile is equipped with a Game Cool cooling system that brings an internal 3D steam chamber.
Likewise, the phone aims to provide “totally immersive” game days, as it has dual surround vibration and incorporates ultrasonic sensors with AirTrigger technology, so that instead of using two fingers when playing, the user can use four, two for the screen and the other two for the triggers.
Xiaomi Black Shark 2
Although the team has a design similar to that of its predecessor with the LED logo on the back, the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 has a clear commitment to processing. The phone is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, which not only promises great power, but also has support for fifth generation networks.
In addition to having a storage of 128 and 256 GB, the Black Shark 2 – which has 6, 8 and up to 12 GB of RAM – offers an immersive game mode that releases RAM to prioritize tasks in the foreground.
To get a quality gaming experience, Xiaomi gave its phone a 6.39-inch Amoled screen, as well as two front speakers and three microphones also located in the front area, of which two allow noise cancellation.
The team, which is still unknown if it will arrive in Colombia, also has a 4,000 mAh battery, a multi-layer liquid cooling system and the possibility of adapting a complementary gamepad.
- Consider aspects such as the battery of the device. The higher the number of ‘mAh’, the longer it will be charged.
- Check the storage capacity and RAM, which will be key for heavy applications.
- The refresh rate also plays an important role when it comes to playing, as it is the amount of images that the device can display per second.
