Okay let’s get one thing straight first first of all it is not being marketed as a gaming phone but with the specs you’re getting and the price you would be paying for it. I would give this thing the honorary title of gaming phone killer, you’re not getting shoulder buttons or access to a crazy amount of accessories but aside from the fact that you’re getting a snapdragon 865 processor on this.

You get a set of killer cameras and other specs too that hit multiple birds with a single bang for the buck phone remember when i said the red magic was the cheapest gaming phone on this list.
