2) Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus

Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus with 120 Hz of refresh rate

One of the famous brands, Samsung, launched its S20 plus model in 2020, February 11. The price is quite high, not because of the brand name of Samsung, and it’s because of the features that this model provides. 

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus has a perfect resolution for gaming of 1440 x 3200 pixels. Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protects the 6.7 inches big display. Flagship processors are packed inside the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus. You’ll get a Snapdragon 865 (7 nm+) chip if you’re in the US and Exynos 990 (7 nm+) globally.  

It has a large internal storage capacity of approximately 128 GB. The RAM capacity of 8 GB makes it almost impossible to be slowed down by any apps, so your games will run smoothly. Hardcore gamers will be happy to know that S20 Plus has a frame rate of about 120 Hz, that increases the performance of gaming.

None of the above features matter if you cannot play games for a long time because of the weak battery capacity. So, Samsung has worked hard on improving its battery performance, and it has a long-lasting 4500 mah battery.

It also supports wireless charging (15W), has a fast-charging capacity of 25W, and a reverse wireless charging (9W) facility, which means it can even charge other devices like smartphones, smart bands, and smartwatches that can handle wireless charging.
