Best Gaming Phone: Phones with Game

What started as an IndieGoGo project, in Hong Kong, back in 2018, the Red Magic gaming smartphone has proved its ambitions to be truly groundbreaking, but can it stand up against a tried and true gaming industry leader like ASUS? Welcome to the Best Gaming Phones Niche. Where SnapDragon gets put to work 24/7, 365, and where Razor phones make a comeback! (But, not in this article.)

The table shown here focuses on the gaming specs of 2 phones – ASUS’ ROG Phone 3 and RedMagic 5G. So, you will not see details about other features; for example, the triple camera features on the Red Magic 5G. Trust me, there are a lot of these extra features.

ASUS ROG Phone 3 vs Red Magic 5G

In the red corner, sits the Red Magic 5g machine. Its cooling system reminds me already of the Nintendo Switch Lite I bought in May. If this Fan Powered Liquid Cooling system works as it’s supposed to, it will have no effort landing some dominating punches on ROG phone. Stepping in the ring with a 144hz AMOLED screen, 5G network uplink, and an ethernet cable hook-up, Red Magic 5g seems like a step ahead of whatever ASUS has coming, but since ASUS ROG Phone 3 hasn’t been released yet, there may be some features I’m missing. Let us take a look at what we do know about ASUS’ ROG Phone 3.

Asus ROG Phone 3

In the blue corner, we see the Asus ROG 3 coming up with some impressive hitters like a 2.96hz processor. This thing is such a performance beast. This thing even becomes advertised by a dock that lets you link in a monitor through the USB-C HDMI and play with mouse and keyboard like the phone is your tower.

If you want to stand with the mobile setup, the device comes with a standard side USB-C socket that allows for smooth gameplay while the phone is charging. The actual refresh rate of the ASUS ROG 3 is unknown at this time, but the ASUS ROG 2 sold with a speed of 120Hz, so its safe to say that the ROG 3 will have 120Hz if not more. However, if ASUS wants to keep up with the competition, it would sell well upgrading to 144Hz or higher – allowing the developers to boast that the phone contains the highest refresh rate of any smartphone. 

Red Magic 5G


What does all this mean? Right now, my money is on the Red Magic 5G, but since Asus a strong reputation, I would wait for the Q3 sale of ROG Phone 3. The Red Magic has an internal cooling system and doesn’t need any additional accessories (even if they may be given for free). The ROG Phone 3 comes with a standard game mode that can be activated manually to optimize the phone’s efficiency while playing. Red Magic has a headstart on the graphics, and while it may not pump out as much processing power as it seems, the ROG Phone 3 will; both phones come equipped with the latest mobile phone technology. Either way, I may get back to some phone gaming and put my Switch Lite on a shelf for after this.
