Usually, phones dedicated to gamers In addition arrive with a gaming-centric design that consists of aggressive strains and a unique watch. Sadly, that is the farthest thing from an elegant design. That is why I would choose the Vivo iQOO from this trio: Below, it is the only gaming-centric smartphone to come with an elegant and flagship-like design. It has a splendid and clean glass back with gradient colors, as nicely as a display with a very high screen-to-body ratio, a low waterdrop notch, and an in-display fingerprint reader. But if you are a gaming-addicted and you prefer a gaming-centric design, Nubia Red Magic Mars could impress you with its RGB LED strip on the rear side and that is the exact same with the RGB LEDs found on the Black Shark 2.


On the paper, Xiaomi Black Shark 2 has the most convincing panel as well as the most suitable one for gaming. It is an AMOLED display with 100 percent of DCI-P3 coverage, the fastest response time ever seen on a cameraphone panel, and brilliant color reproduction. The not so narrow bezels about the panel need to help to make a solid grip making it far more perfect for long gaming sessions. On the additional hand, some could find the Nubia Red Magic Mars far more comfortable due to its shorter and larger 18:9 aspect ratio.

Nubia Red Magic Mars loses the hardware comparison due to a lower-end chipset and fewer incredibile memory configurations. It will be a hard fight between Xiaomi Black Shark and Vivo iQOO: they both come with the perfect Qualcomm’s chipset for 2019. We are talking about the Snapdragon 855, paired with up to 12 GB of RAM, something insane! Xiaomi Black Shark 2 has a pretty efficient liquid cooling system and its panel will In addition make a fairly low latency thanks to the 43,5 ms response rate, although Vivo iQOO arrives with a number of technologies which improve gaming performance, connection reliability and cooling.

It has an awesome dual camera with a 48 MP base camera and a secondary telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. It can record video in 4K resolution and it even has a very good 20 MP selfie camera. The second place in the ranking goes to the Vivo iQOO with its dual digital camera which include an ultrawide lens.


All of those products come with a big battery, but the one of the Red Magic Mars is somewhat compact. Because of to their higher ability, their efficient areas and their AMOLED displays, Xiaomi Black Shark 2 and Vivo iQOO need to Supply a longer battery life and they need to last far more or much less the exactly in numerous outlines, however software optimization (that we have to test) will play an important role in regards to the battery life. I would go for the Vivo iQOO for its faster charging technology: it can reach 50% in just 15 mins and 100% in just 45 mins!
