Top gaming smartphones of the year 2022

The smartphone world has various categories in terms of purchase, where some go for camera-based phones with the best quality camera sensors equipped, and some go for a high-end processor for the smooth overall performance of the phone.


Now, at current times, we can confidently say that the one category that people more often aim for is smartphones, which are specially built for gaming, and there is no doubt that gaming has impacted the smartphone industry more than anything else in the world.

Here are a few that are truly the best in the business.

Red Magic 7S Series


Red Magic is a brand that is dedicated to mobile gamers, just like the ASUS ROG Phone line. The Chinese organization's Red Wizardry is dealing with another Red Sorcery 8 Master model that will be sent out soon; however, for the time being, we have the Red Enchantment 7S series, which consists of a base and star model. The tall 6.8-inch AMOLED display of the vanilla model has a high refresh rate of 165 Hz, while the Pro model only has a 120 Hz refresh rate.

Despite the fact that the latter also makes use of the Red Magic x Qualcomm LTM dimming technology, the Red Wizardry 7S and Red Sorcery 7S Star are outfitted with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which is the chipmaker's 2022 leader chipset.

The lineup uses this chip in conjunction with up to 512GB of internal storage and up to 16GB of RAM. In terms of its design, you can see angular shapes and a capable cooling system because it is also a gaming phone. This includes a turbo fan with RGB capabilities that is used to cool the device's internals. There is a vent for the dedicated cooling fan in this series. With such high-end specs, a dedicated thermal dissipation system helps prevent performance throttling for gamers who play for longer periods of time.

The Red Magic 7S gaming smartphone was released for 729 US dollars, while the Red Magic 7S starts at approximately 600 US dollars.

ASUS ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6D Series


ASUS is a well-known manufacturer of personal computers. The company also has a separate gaming brand called Republic of Gamers, or ROG. The ROG Phone series of gaming smartphones has been produced by the Taiwanese brand under this name. The ROG Phone 6 and the ROG Phone 6D lineup are two recent examples. Since these are its most recent offerings, let's begin with the first.

The ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro have 6.78-inch AMOLED displays with a high refresh rate of 165 Hz and a touch sampling rate of 720 Hz, making gaming more fluid and responsive.

Moreover, both of these gadgets pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, which makes them one of the most remarkable Android cell phones that are at present accessible on the market. Additionally, this chipset can be paired with up to 512GB of internal storage and up to 18GB of RAM. This means that running lengthy titles won't cause stuttering due to memory loss.

Design-wise, it has a sleek, angular design with RGB lighting that emphasizes its gaming nature. On the sides, pressure-sensitive zones, or gaming triggers, are housed. Again, this makes it very appealing to gamers because they won't have to purchase a separate trigger accessory.

However, ASUS ROG Phones are compatible with certain accessories, allowing dedicated mobile gamers to customize their gaming smartphones. The Phone 6D models, in contrast to the ROG Phone 6 series, include MediaTek's Dimensity 9000+ SoC, which is also a flagship chip. The ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate are identical to the previous models in that they share only a memory capacity of 16GB, whereas the ROG Phone 6D has a RAM capacity of 12 GB.

Except for a few minor internal differences, this lineup, including its design, is very similar to ASUS's previous offerings. As a result, the gaming aesthetic will still be enhanced by small cover displays and RGB lighting. You can also use the game's built-in gaming triggers and other accessories.

The ROG Phone 6D series costs approximately 917 US dollars, while the ROG Phone 6 series starts at approximately 999 US dollars.


Apple iPhone 14 Series

Despite the fact that the company is one of the biggest players in the smartphone industry, you should keep in mind that the Apple iPhone 14 series is on a list of gaming smartphones.

In addition, certain esports athletes use the iPhone series because it is one of the most capable and optimized handsets on the market. Some people buy iPads solely for gaming because the platform is so dependable. However, the most recent iPhone 14 series is the best gaming smartphone.

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus

Regarding the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, both of these models continue to use the A15 Bionic chip from the previous year. However, this does not imply that they trail any Android rivals on this list. Since Android's chips have outperformed Apple's, gamers can anticipate excellent gaming performance.

When we move on to the more expensive Pro models, the powerhouse, the A16 chipset, can be found here. Additionally, the 120 Hz display on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max is responsive and smooth.

iPhone 14 Pro

These chips have also been praised for their low power consumption, making the entire lineup a premium flagship experience even in design. If you want to play games on your phone but don't like the gamer look, these phones might be right for you.

The iPhone 14 costs 795 dollars, while the more expensive Pro models cost 999 dollars.
