    Hi. I am looking for a good phone to play games on, like Pubg and Mobile legends Bang Bang. Needs decent speed and good memory space. Have a few hundred bucks to spend.

    Any suggestions?

    Well if you have no aversion to the Chinese brands and really care for performance and not all that much for the camera, i would guess one of best budget options should be the Xiaomi Mi (what one in particular depends on your specific budget).

    That's a good suggestion. Thanks.

    Moto G G5 Plus, top gamma for its price. 6.7", gaming mode, good CPU and GPU. Have a look at it.

    Beware, this is a total nerd-out post.

    Redmagic
    is a phone company thats sole purpose is making gaming phones, I'd highly suggest checking out their line! It's (decently) affordable, and really does perform well! However, I think the customizability can be a bit of an issue in terms of actual comfort in gaming (unless you play Cod:Moble and like to play using a 4 finger method) And of course having a large fan stick out the back of a phone also comes with the slight issues of... well... portability.

    On top of this, If you buy this phone, BUY GOOD ANC HEADPHONES (Which I can also suggest if you need). You won't notice it much at first, but the fans on the back of the phone, ESPECIALLY on heavier intensity games (Cod:Mobile, Guardian Tales, Shadow fight, etc.) the fan will become l o u d. I mean, it really becomes a nuisance. On top of it, it's probably one of the smoothest phones I've seen. Even typing feels really smooth. They also have touch shoulder buttons, which are real nice to have on a phone made for gaming.

    I'd also highly suggest the Legion phone duel 2, with cool buttons on the side to essentially turn it into a nice gamepad. It runs pretty well, and does surprisingly well in gaming when it comes to comfort imo. I haven't gotten to use the phone myself, but I've heard from friends the series is fairly decent for playing games, and that's just about it.

    Or, I'd also suggest the ROG series, an Asus phone series specifically designed for Mobile gamers. They also function fairly decently as... actual phones, if you want to consider them for more than just gaming.


    Another decent one (albeit expensive) is the Xperia 1. You might or might not have heard about this one, considering Cod:Mobile/Activision Wildly advertised this as, "The official phone of Cod:Mobile" and hyped it up a bunch to ramp up the attention to it. It really isn't good for anything but gaming. It amazingly, AMAZINGLY has a 3.5mm Headphone jack (Can't believe how much I missed those) And expandable sd card slot storage, meaning that you'll never have to worry about space running out... pretty much ever.

    I wouldn't highly suggest this one solely because the grip can be kinda annoying, and it's $1300 USD, which is expensive for a phone you're using solely for gaming. Spec wise? Meh. Even the S21 has a snapdragon 888, compared to the measly snapdragon 855 that the Xperia 1 uses.

    Finally, I'd actually suggest the s21 Ultra, the current phone I'm using. The frames on it are SMOOTH, and the game can easily handle just about any game you throw at it. And, as a cherry on top, it has a built in screen recorder!!! The game still runs amazingly smooth with the screen recorder running in the background, even when I play intense rhythm games, or shooters. Of course a lot of people would prefer Iphone for it's better A14 bionic chip, but they don't realize that while its processor speed is faster than the s21 ultra, does it really need to be? I run many fps games at max settings using my s21 ultra, while simultaneously running the screen recorder and the thing can play for about 1.5 hours without overheating. Keep in mind, this is with an Otterbox attached (which, to be honest, are absolutely terrible at ventilation.) Without the case, the phone can play for well over 3 hours at max settings in fps games absolutely no issue. And the best part is that it only takes about 3 minutes with a fan nearby to cool the phone down quick enough that you can start playing again!


    TL;DR:
    Redmagic
    Legion phone duel 2
    ROG phone 5
    S21 Ultra
    annnnd the Xperia 1 III (Highly don't suggest. It's basically an expensive, lighter S21)
