With the rumours and speculations hovering around the last quarter of 2019, here are our top picks that will determine the flagship trends of the coming years.
Asus ROG Phone II – The Best Gaming Smartphone
Hailed as the ultimate heavy spec gaming phone of the year, Asus has done a tremendous job in following up on its next iteration of ROG phone by including various bleeding edge technologies. This beast is more of a spec bump, rather than a design revolution.
This is the first phone to feature a Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset which has been tweaked to make it better for running VR and high-end games. The 120Hz refresh rate is a significant improvement over the 60Hz display of last year which makes it great for competitive gaming. Probably, the best phone in the market right now to play demanding games like PUBG and live casino games. Just avail an impressive bonus offer and enjoy hours of live gaming thanks to the massive 6,000mAh battery!
With a 48MP camera, a 6.59-inch AMOLED screen, two USB-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Vapor chamber cooling, up to 512GB of storage,12GB of RAM and a variety of gaming accessories, this is undoubtedly the best gaming phone of 2019.

The Spen stylus will also get an upgrade by including some form of gesture control.
