Mobile gaming on your phone has become more fluid as the years passed. As you see, to run a high-intensity game at the highest settings, you no longer need to spend a lot. Discernibly the main qualities of the phone when considering gaming are displays and battery life.

Smartphones which lead the discussion are mostly top-end flagship with all the bells and whistles. The best mobile gaming blogs often feature very expensive mobile devices and can be off-putting. Deciding between different games is hard but so is choosing phones to play on. The phone which you wouldn’t be able to afford last year might be affordable enough today but the one released last month may seem attractive. The entire decision-making process is becoming nerve-racking day after day.

Here are some of the best phones to consider for online mobile gamers and later we shall discuss the best games for you to try this year.

Let’s See What We Have From the Chinese Brand Xiaomi

2020 -The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro has a 6.67-inch, Full-HD, Dot-notch display with a 5020 mAh battery. The phone has an 18-watt fast charger and is under $200. It is the most value you get for this price range.

2019- Xiaomi’s last year’s flagship, the Redmi K20 pro is also a good choice. Now at about $350, you can get an 800 series Snapdragon chipset with a decent 4,000mAh battery. If you wait a month or two more, it might just become a bit more affordable.

Both phones are perfect to play mobile games on and for long durations at a time. They do not show heating issues, which are a bonus and take a short time to charge. It’s a pretty sweet deal to me!

Now Let’s Check Out What Realme Has to Offer

Released in 2020, the Realme 6 at just about $250, is quite a challenger. The younger brother to the Realme 6 Pro packs a Mediatek chipset. It’s supported by a 4300 mAh cell providing decent gaming hours. You can also use the 30-watt fast charger to get a quick juice up if you are all drained.

The 2019 Realme 5 Pro and the Realme X are both gaming capable devices now at around $220. The snappy response times and respectable frame rates at this price range are just something you appreciate. You might drain the battery quicker than the Xiaomi counterparts but that is not a problem. Each of these devices come with a 30-watt fast charger. So, recharging the device is pretty quick.

Samsung Has Some Desirable Phones Too

Samsung Galaxy A51 in 2020, at around $300 comes with a beautiful Super AMOLED Touchscreen with a 4000 mAh battery. You can expect buttery smooth performance with punchy graphics in intense games. You can get the battery to go zero to up to 50% in about 30 minutes.

The 2018 Samsung Galaxy S9, is now available at an incredible price of about $300. The former flagship comes with its Exynos chip, delivering high-class mobile gaming performance.

iPhone for Premium Gaming?

It is completely okay to want an iPhone over an Android. But it limits your options to just one phone. Two, if you can get a better deal somewhere else. This phone can be used for gaming too but have to live with the terrible battery life. A portable power bank might be a lifesaver if you are a heavy gamer. The phone should be available at around $350 now.

Whichever you happen to choose, you will be content. These phones may not be best out there but, they are the best in this price range for perfect mobile gaming.

Now that the hardware is out-of-the-way, let’s see what are the best online and offline games you can download and play for free. You can make in-app purchases but it is completely fine if you choose not to.



The game released mid-2017 took the world by storm and can now run smoothly on most phones at 60 frames per second. It also runs 90 frames per second on some phones at a higher price range. Even at 60 frames per second, you can have a five-star experience while playing with the highest settings.
