Gaming smartphones are a niche when you look at the smartphone market as a whole. Not too long ago, a powerful processor was considered to be the only important factor for gaming. Things have changed drastically now, and we have dedicated gaming smartphones, each one bringing something different to the table. The Nubia Red Magic 3, for instance, had an internal fan which helped it keep thermals in check. We liked it as a gaming device, but it wasn't very good at everything else. Nubia, the company behind that phone, has now launched an update called the Nubia Red Magic 3S.

    Top notch hardware. The phone is nearly stock Android with smooth performance. The capacitive triggers are a boon for games like PUBG, CODM. Camera is decent too
