    "This is a very familiar brand and model of phone to me, but not necessarily what I expect for a phone specifically for gaming. I'd rather see something with higher specs, even at a higher price range, to better suit my needs. Also, the user reviews are minimal, so I can't get a great idea of what other people are using it for."

    "The OnePlus 3T might not be the most well known smartphone, but don't let that stop you from buying this incredible phone that is rated as one of the best gaming phones on the market. The OnePlus 3T has found a niche. I am a gamer and I especially like the latest games for smartphones.

    "First of all this phone is huge! It's not a bad thing, just an observation. The camera is really sharp and it makes for great pics. Cell network reception and call quality are really good. My only minor complaint is there's no memory expansion but with 32GB internal storage and auto backup when I get home, I have zero issues. The phone is equipped with dual speakers on the phone give quality sound when I'm streaming music which I love! The games I play run smoothly, and apps download quickly. In all, a very decent phone. I will be sticking with my Moto Z Play for quite some time!"

    "The Google Pixel has gorgeous battery life, a great camera and offers help from Google assistant, but the big sells as far as gaming are the beautiful OLED screen and Google's ARCore technology which will be a boon for new augmented reality games as they roll out. It's a sharp and responsive phone and should meet almost everyone's needs when it comes to gaming."

    "This isn't even the top 10 in the category of best gaming phones in the world, although it is capable of doing gaming in a basic way, and would be adequate for many people. The phone manufacturer most likely didn't have this purpose as the main attraction to the phone, and intended it for a general all-around use."

    "The Sony Xperia XA2 is an outstanding gaming phone. The massive 3GB of ram will handle nearly everything you can throw at it. It has a standard 32GB of internal storage, which isn't bad, but it still would need more for being labeled as the best gaming phone. Some larger games are over 1GB each. It would still be a great phone to get most things to work properly."
