  1. Kya fayda, play store pe toh pakau games hi available hain jaise ki COC, candy crush aur ludo

      1. The point is, plenty of games including the graphic intensive high end games can be played on a 10-15k budget priced phones with good hardware, for example note 5 pro, do we actually need such phone at all with thrice the price?

    1. Bhai FarCry 5 mobile version android ya ios ke liye nahi hai. PUBG, Fortnite, modern Combat series, asphalt, NFS,Hitman series etc games hai phones ke liye.

  3. Being a gaming phone – should’ve had a 120 Hz display – like the one on the razer phone.

    1. Genereally 120Hz is generally Good for gaming & smooth scrolling..

      120Hz + is good in PC but still many games are locked in 60fps. no need to Speak of mobile since almost all games are locked in 30-60fps.

      But Its expensive to make.. & only very few games support that much refresh rate anyway.

      So i think this phone is much more practical & much less cost than razer phone.

      1. I’m just nit-picking. But if it’s a phones built for gaming – it should be about the experience. The other day to day stuff can be done by the regular flagship. This one should’ve had 120 Hz refresh rate. The smoothness due to the frames getting refreshed at 120 Hz is at a different level !!
