The gaming experience has transitioned from relying solely laptops and consoles, to smartphones, with most brands now offering their own set of devices that let you play even the heaviest of the games with ease. In fact, some of these smartphones offer more RAM than some basic laptops, showing that size truly doesn’t matter when it comes to pushing the envelope. When you buy a smartphone for gaming, you should look at features like screen size, battery backup, RAM and the processor to know whether it makes for a good gaming phone. Keeping these things in mind, here is a list of smartphones that are perfect for gamers.

Apple iPhone 11

One cannot deny the fact that the Apple Arcade has some seriously good games for players to explore. With the Apple iPhone 11, you get the easiest access to exclusive gaming titles via Apple Arcade. It also has a decent battery back-up when compared with other iPhones, so you should be able to play for quite some time. The A13 Bionic chip with its neural engine should give you a smooth gaming experience. Also, the huge 6.1-inch Liquid Retina screen should be ideal for gamers as the ample screen real-estate will prevent game scenes from being obscured by your thumbs!

If you are looking for a gaming beast on a budget then look further than the Redmi Note 8 Pro, which comes with quite a few features that should provide a smooth gaming experience. The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage memory should allow you to store a decent number of games on the phone, which means you won’t have to put yourself through the trauma of choosing between two good games. With a 2.05GHz MediaTek Helio G90T processor, you can expect a certain level of speed from the device. Furthermore, the 4500mAh lithium-polymer battery should also allow you to go on a gaming spree for a decent amount of time.

The smartphone has 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM, allowing you to store a multitude of heavy games without the system slowing down too much. The 2.8GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa core processor should minimise the loading time for some games.  Even though these specs should make it easy for you to play heavy games, do keep in mind that your smartphone will be subjected to a lot of system-induced heat.
