Gaming on Smartphone is a rage now especially with titles like PUBG Mobile making it more immersive as well as addictive. No wonder, we have specialised Gaming Smartphones like Razer phone and Asus ROG phones designed for Gamers in mind. While the dedicated Gaming phones would remain a niche market, many would prefer their Smartphone to be equally good at playing too. For a top notch good gaming performance, the Smartphone should be equipped with the best of the available hardware and the best of the flagship Smartphones provide you exactly that. While we have the likes of Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 8, Huawei P20 Pro (let me stick faithfully with Android) has enough muscles to push the gaming boundaries, you also have to dig deep into your pocket to own them. Or you can settle for the best affordable flagship for your Gaming needs which has the best processing power available in the market now for gaming , yep am talking about the OnePlus 6.
Why I feel OnePlus 6 is an ideal Gaming Smartphone
- 6.28 inches Optic AMOLED display
- 83.8% screen-to-body ratio
- 1080 x 2280 pixels
- 402 ppi density
- Corning Gorilla Glass 5
- 19:9 ratio
Display plays an important role in satisfying a gamer’s needs. A big screen with vivid display would make for an enriching gaming experience. The OnePlus 6 comes with a bigger 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED display with a fullHD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio, the display is bigger but due to the tall aspect ratio the form factor is also good at handling. The DCI-P3 color profile offers wider gamut of colours than sRGB.
Hardware muscle power:
The better the processing power and graphic capabilities, the better your phone would be at handling the games. The OnePlus 6 is equipped with the best Snapdragon processor available right now – the Snapdragon 845 with Adreno 630 GPU. The combination is the best we have now for enhanced gaming experience. The graphics processing is extremely good and the phone can easily handle any games available right now in Android world and also is a breeze to use.
I hate being interrupted by notifications and calls between my calls. The OnePlus 6 has a gaming mode especially for people like me who want an uninterrupted gaming session. The Gaming mode gives you option to block notifications, answer calls via speaker in case you want to still talk while playing. We can add the games to the gaming mode feature. There are few other features also in the gaming mode which I will talk below.
There is also an option to disable automatic brightness
while you play games you have added to the Gaming mode. I quiet liked this nifty feature which turned off the annoying change in adaptive brightness while playing games.
The Gaming mode setting is available on Settings > Advanced > Gaming mode.
The Gaming mode has a toggle for network boost. Games like PUBG mobile which are online games require good data network connectivity while playing game or you risk being busted in the middle of the game, the network boost feature prioritises the network for your games by limiting other app’s network usage while the game mode is turned on.
Gaming Battery Saver:
There is also a battery save mode baked into the gaming mode with an option for low and high. If you choose the low setting, the resolution of games will be limited, if you opt for high setting resolution and game FPS will be limited or reduced. Of course, this mode won’t be ideal for all games but for those games that work well on low resolution and FPS you can turn it on and save battery.
With all these features and a beast of a hardware power, OnePlus 6 is the best available affordable Gaming smartphone you can buy right now.]]>
