Mobile phones are more than just calls or messages. For many users, the smartphone is their business center, their office, an essential element to work. For others, however, they are a mere entertainment tool where you can surf the internet or consult social networks. Others, on the other hand, have their smartphones to play and it is that they believe that the mobile phones are the perfect replacement for portable consoles that are now virtually extinct.
And this is not strange. With the sudden rise of video games for mobile phones, there are not a few readers who ask us for the best phone to enjoy the hundreds of games we have available in the application store. And although today practically any phone works for this task, we will choose one above the others, which for us is the best gaming phone on the market today.

The ASUS ROG Phone 2 isn't just the best gaming phone on the market, but also one of the most interesting devices we have been able to test. As we show you in our analysis, which you can check out in this link, the ASUS phone is quite round and while it lacks some other aspect, in general terms it is exceptional.
Why? It has one of the best displays we have seen, with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 and the possibility of having 60, 90 and 120 Hz, which makes video games and any other content fabulous. Also, we have to highlight its audio section and we will be honest, a good video game cannot be enjoyed if it is not equipped with good sound. The sound experience of this ASUS ROG Phone 2 is indescribable. It can't really be put into words, but it's not only crisp but also very powerful. Not forgetting that it has an FM radio and a headphone port.
Finally, the performance. The ASUS ROG Phone 2 has a Snapdragon 855+ processor and 8/12 GB of RAM. In fact it's too high hardware considering there aren't any Android apps that require a lot, but this ensures there are no jerks and drops in performance. It doesn't matter what we throw on this device, because it moves it without messing up. It also has its own software to enjoy our favorite video games even more, as a special way to not disturb, not forgetting its two physical buttons on one side in case the game requires them.
In short, the ASUS ROG Phone 2 is the best phone for long gaming sessions. It behaves brutally, it does not heat up thanks to the fan accessory that comes in the box and its multimedia section is the best on the market even today. Unfortunately, its cameras are not the strong point of the terminal but… we were looking for a gaming phone, right? If what you want is to take pictures, better opt for another terminal.
The official price of the ASUS ROG Phone 2 is 699 euros in its official store, although it is the version with 8 GB of RAM. The 12GB can be obtained on Amazon albeit a bit more expensive unfortunately. We still recommend the basic version because it is more than enough.
