Vote Now: Would You Buy A Gaming Phone As Your Daily Driver?


Gaming phones! They’re still pretty niche, and while a dedicated gaming model will arguably get you better hardware for less money, people are staying away from these devices.

Now there might be a few things that would put a non-gamer off in a gaming phone. Firstly, all the aggressive elements and flashing LED lights that scream – 80s disco. On the other hand, a huge percentage of people use their phone with a case on, so that shouldn’t be an issue.

There’s also the weight and size problem – gaming phones tend to be heavier and bulkier than the slim “regular” flagship phones. Let’s take the Asus ROG Phone 6 as an example – it is ten grams heavier and an inch taller than the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and the latter is not a small device.

Another problem could be the camera system, although in the ROG Phone 6 it is quite good and comparable to modern flagship phones. These are all drawbacks, but when we consider the benefits, things start to look good for gaming phones.

For example, the ROG Phone 6 is (again) equipped with a Samsung OLED display, tuned to offer a refresh rate of 165 Hz. The color calibration is also top notch. And speaking of notches, there aren’t any, and there aren’t any holes in that screen either. The processor is the latest, faster than what a Galaxy S22 Ultra has to offer (not that it matters much), the battery is bigger, and the charging is faster. And most importantly – the price is lower. So, would you buy a gaming phone as your daily driver?
