Over past some time, gaming smartphones have pretty evidently become very popular among gaming enthusiasts. Many smartphone brands have released their versions of an ideal gaming smartphone, and a lot of them have succeeded too, up to some extent. Razer, Xiaomi and Asus have released gaming smartphones which became quite famous. Following them, Huawei also released a device specifically designed for smartphone gaming. As per recent reports, Samsung has plans on launching one, too.
In this article, we’ll compare Huawei Mate 20 Pro vs Razer Phone 2 vs Asus ROG Phone, and the three remarkably talked gaming smartphones with each-other: the newly-announced Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the Razer Phone 3 and the Asus ROG Phone; all three phones contain great strength and are highly-demanded.

All the three devices technically have very different aesthetics- and two of them have common gaming-centric- designs. The third one, Honor Mate 20 Pro has its design quite similar to a regular smartphone- a smartphone almost as big as a tablet. On the contrary side, the model of the Asus ROG Phone appears to be pretty aggressive. Hence, design-wise, Razer Phone 2 is the most suitable choice as it is neither too bold nor too familiar. It falls somewhere in between, elegant yet sturdy. Also, not to forget that it is water-resistant.
Here, too, Razer Phone 2 is ahead of the other two smartphones it is being compared with. It has a sharp and beautiful view quality with a 16:9 panel with Sharp’s IGZO technology that measures 5.72 inches. This panel can refresh with a rate of 120Hz. This is the highest rate that a mobile phone ever has had.
Moreover, the screen has a very bright and high-quality Quad HD resolution. The Asus ROG isn’t far behind, though. It sports the HDR technology and DCI-P3 coverage. Though these features allow more vibrant colours than usual, they limit the details and refresh rate. The least impressive display quality out of the three gaming smartphones is exhibited by Huawei Mate 20 Pro, despite its massive screen of 5.6 inches. It supports the M Pen with 4096 pressure levels.
On Paper Specification
This section probably describes the most critical factor that decides how good a smartphone is as a gaming phone. Here, the Asus ROG Phone wins over its competitors with perhaps the most potent hardware in the mobile space. It flaunts the Qualcomm SD845, currently the best processor in the market, overclocked at a frequency of 2.96 GHz. Besides, it has an enormous RAM of 8GB and internal storage expandable up to 512GB. Though, since the upcoming Kirin 980 is still a mystery for all, we can’t say for sure if the Asus ROG Phone is going to reign here over Huawei Mate 20 Pro for long.
Huawei P20 Pro features a stunning triple camera, and the Huawei Mate 20X boasts the same beast with a primary sensor. The primary camera has a resolution of 40MP and the secondary 20MP. Moreover, there is an 8MP telephoto lens that allows 5x optical zoom. This is the best as of yet a gaming smartphone has given.
The winner here, too, is the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Due to its dimensions, It was possible to deploy a 5000 mAh battery unit to work. A single charge of Huawei Mate 20 Pro can give hours of flawless gaming. Asus ROG Phone is the runner-up as it has an additional USB-C port which lets you connect gaming accessories like a joypad or an external cooler.
The Huawei MATE 20X costs Rs.75,000- Rs.86,000. The starting price tag of Asus ROG phone is Rs.75,000, too. Razer Phone 2 costs Rs.71,000-Rs.82,000. Considering this, Asus ROG Phone is the best GAMING phone out of the three since it has more to offer a gamer but doesn’t have many things that the average user inside the gamer would want. If you want to enjoy mobile phone gaming as well as the other advanced tasks that a smartphone does, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the stuff to go with.
