Looking to buy a android gaming phone

Hello,

I'm in the market to buy a phone, strictly for mobile gaming purpose. It will be on WiFi only and it will server no purpose other to play mobile games. I don't want to spend a lot on the phone as the next generation of console are right around the corner but my budget is anything under $800 - $900 CAD.

Any suggestion ?

Thanks in advance.

Instead of buying a gaming phone for that price and not utilizing anything more than gaming, why don't you just grab the PS5 when it comes out?

Because trust me, with either phone or gaming system, there'll be a time when it will bore you and you start to wonder, why did I pay this much lol

Already planning on buying the PS5 that not going to change if I buy a phone or not.

Currently playing games on the computer with an emulator and it's frustrating.

And I totally agree with you, my gaming mood changes quickly so i'll pretty much get bored of both the PS5 and gaming phone, but I rather have one incase I want to play again lol.

My computer is pretty high end in terms of spec. I don't want another PC/Tablet and run a emulator to android games. I rather spend the amount of money I would of spent on tablet on a gaming phone. Just don't know which one.

How about LG G8X or V60 5G dual screen? Costco.ca has the G8X single screen for $499. A 2nd screen is under $200. Not sure pricing on V60 dual screen...Telus MSRPis $1100.

LG V60 has an interesting notification light. Prices will likely drop next year.

iPad mini or a switch are probably a better idea.

How did this thread get 5 months old and you didn't notice your title has a glaring typo? Please change it to "... an android ..."
