  • Linus: Why do 'Gaming' Phones Exist?? Indians: To play free fire and pubg mobile

    ItsPuppyItsPuppy15 tuntia sitten
  • Truly a question, being how in general flagships are so expensive, at such prices can easily get PC then. Though funny how these gaming phones are really one of the best general ones with complete screen.

  • This video confused me: where's the blackshark, and why is the rog phone 5 ultimate features over the standard model? It feels somewhat akin to featuring the gold apple watch and saying that the value just isn't there because it's far more expensive than the competition...

  • In what world is a 888 on par with a xbox 360??? Even forgetting the feature set (which is 16 years newer), in raw power it still dwarfs a 360. That's just nonsense. You could underclock those chips like crazy and it'll still outperform an ancient dx9 chip like that.

  • Red magic is definitely a good value phone. It cost less than mainstream phones with better hardware. This is where the good part stops though. Their OS contains quite a few bugs and missing optimizations. It sometimes makes the brand of phone hard to use, similar to Apple updates.

  • No mention of "Desktop Mode" seems like an oversight to me. That's where the performance of these devices could be really advantageous. I've been stuck with using an Android TV Box (quad A53 cores, 4GB) as my "PC" for several months (Old PC died) on Android 9. Android 11's desktop mode deserves mentionfrom what I've seen, multiple windows means these kinds of devices should have the performance and capability (paired with Gerforce Now) to the sole computer for students or others in a small living space (I'm in a bedsit so the space/energy saving has been awesome).

  • None of my friends actually game on their phones and neither do I. The real question should be: Why do stupid people like me keep buying high end phones? All I do is watch FIstart, make calls and light social media interaction like most other people I know. I don´t even take that many pictures but I am highly obsessed with the camera quality.

  • I bought my Razer Phone 2 on sale in 2019 for like $399. I love the thing's refresh rate and super snappy response time. But I don't reap any other benefit from it since the amount of games on android that I'd actually care about running are Basically zero. Great phone for the price I got it for. But I probably won't buy a gaming phone again. My next phone will probably be whatever the previous Generation Galaxy Note Phone is at the time or the Next Surface Duo (if it actually has 5G), because the ability to work on my art on the go using my smartphone with an actual active stylus has become much more important to me than being able to game on my phone. Lol.

  • *Asus ROG* is actually cheaper if you're fine with 8GB or even 12GB of RAM and doesn't see needing 18GB of RAM as the Ultimate version shown here and has my vote as best of all worlds - *quality, stability, durability* and even spread that heat with its *Vapour Chamber* tech speaking of which has a unique Battery Bypass Charging feature to add to its 6000mAh battery. The Asus ROG Phone is a clear winner with its experience from making Laptops if not GPUs than the rest of the Chinese Solutions of random failure. Camera is salient which is again ROG wins here because it uses the same Sony Sensors - just Capture RAW with Lightroom instead of depending on OEM's Colour Science.

  • We don't need gaming phones right now. We need an arm based platform with upgradeability in mind. Most of these phones are more powerful than the Nintendo Switch, but they lack the games library. There are some great games in the Google app store, but most of them don't even support being played without a touchscreen. This also shows how Google messed things up with Stadia. Perhaps it's a good opportunity for Epic, since they're behind Unreal Engine and might offer incentives for developers to start to make ARM/X86 multiplatform games, even with crossplay baked in from scratch.
