If you're a gamer, then congratulations! You have chosen a lifestyle that requires a lot of time and effort to pursue. And if you're like most gamers out there, then there's nothing more rewarding than getting into your favorite game and losing yourself in hours of fun. However, not all phones are created equal when it comes to gaming performance. There are some phones on the market today that offer superior graphics performance compared with others—and these are the best smartphones for gamers:

Razer Phone.

The Razer Phone is a 5.7-inch, 120Hz UltraMotion display phone with an HDR10 display and Dolby Atmos surround sound. It has dual front-facing speakers, which are louder than you'd expect for a smartphone and the battery can last for two days if you don't use your phone very often.

The device comes with 64 GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, so it's not going to be slow or laggy while playing games on high settings like Fortnite or PUBG Mobile (which we also recommend). You'll also have Dolby Atmos surround sound wherever you go—even if there aren't any speakers nearby!

iPhone X.

The iPhone X is the best phone for gaming. It has the latest processor, the A11 Bionic chip, which delivers power and efficiency to every single application you run. You'll also notice that this phone is super fast when it comes to launching apps or switching between games and apps.

The screen on this device is beautiful: it's bright, with high resolution and an OLED panel that makes everything look even better than it does on other devices. On top of all this, the battery life lasts longer than any other smartphone on this list—and if you need your phone for more than two hours of continuous use (which most gamers do), there’s another version with an LTE connection too!

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of the best smartphones for gamers. It has a 6.3-inch screen, which makes it better suited for gaming than other phones with smaller screens. This makes sense because you can see more things on your phone and make better decisions when playing games or watching videos that require focus and concentration on multiple things at once (i.e., not just one thing).

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor inside so it can run apps quickly without lag or freezing up at any point during gameplay sessions—which means no more waiting around for an app to load before moving onto something else! In addition to its superior speediness, this device also comes with 64GB of storage capacity so there's plenty room for all those games that are downloaded onto it or saved locally on your device itself; plus 4GB RAM means smoother multitasking between applications as well as running multiple programs simultaneously while still having enough memory available throughout their lifetime cycles within each session(s) where they might encounter difficulties due to resource constraints related primarily their physical size rather than software limitations such as memory usage per instance(s) within which might occur prior

Lenovo Moto Z2 Force Edition.

The Lenovo Moto Z2 Force Edition is a great option for gamers who want the best device possible. It has a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM which provide smooth performance across all applications and games.

The phone also features 64GB of storage plus microSD card support up to 2TB if you want more space on your new smartphone!

The 12MP dual rear cameras with optical zoom help capture stunning photos in low light conditions or when taking pictures at night time without having flash lighting up your subjects' faces (which would ruin their makeup). The front-facing camera has an 8MP sensor that works well for selfies too!

Essential Phone PH-1.

This phone is perfect for gamers because of its RAM and processor, which are both higher than most other smartphones. It has a 6-inch display with a resolution of 2K (2,000 × 1,080 pixels). The device also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage space as well as support for wireless charging so you can juice up on the go.

The camera quality on this phone is excellent—it can take pictures at up to 4K resolution with autofocus accuracy thanks to its dual rear cameras (16MP + 20 MP), but it doesn't have optical zoom capability like some other flagship devices do. However, if you're looking for more flexibility in terms of video recording options than just HD video capture then this might not be your best bet since there aren't any additional modes available when using third party apps like Instagram Live or Facebook Stories Live like there would be on other devices without built-in rear cameras

You'll need to buy more than one game controller to play with friends when you buy your new gaming phone!

If you have a friend who also owns a gaming phone, or if they own one of the other top models mentioned in this article and want to join in on the fun, then it's easy enough for them—just get them their own controller. But if neither of those things is true for yours (and chances are that it isn't), then there is still hope: The next best thing is using your existing smartphone as gamepad via USB. This means plugging it into either another computer running Windows 7/8/10 or MacOS 10.9+, or even just any old PC at home or work (if only because most people don't have anything else).


When you're looking for a new gaming phone, it's important to consider all of these factors. A good smartphone will give you access to plenty of fun games, but if your budget is tight or you don't care about being able to connect with friends via high-speed internet then an affordable model may be just what you need.
