Between 2017 and 2018, a number of gaming smartphones have sprung up and mobile gamers are definitely happy with the development. Last year, we got the original Razer Phone with its 120Hz display. Since then, a number of other manufacturers have announced gaming phones too. This year, Razer released the second generation Razer Phone, and we also got the Asus ROG Phone.
Android Authority released a poll last week to ask users which they think is the best gaming phone. For now, the Razer Phone 2 and the Asus ROG Phone seem to be the two most premium gaming smartphones in the market. So, it was apparent that the winner would be between them. Both devices feature top-of-the-line specs.
Other phones included in the poll were the Huawei Mate 20 X, Honor Play, and Xiaomi Black Shark. The prices of these phones show that you can actually get good gaming experiences without having to spend on the very high side.
Razer Phone 2 wins the Poll, but barely.
Even though the Razer Phone 2 won the poll, it was an extremely close one. Android Authority set the poll on its website and social media handles. If the website result alone is anything to go by, the Asus ROG Phone would have won. But with the average from the site, Twitter, and YouTube, the Razer Phone 2 overtook it to take the crown.
Overall, the Razer Phone 2 won the poll with 36% of the votes. The Asus ROG Phone came second with 34% of the votes while the Huawei Mate 20 X got 16% of the votes. The remaining votes were shared between the Xiaomi Black Shark, the Honor Play, the Nubia Red Magic, and other phones.
