Starting from 1999 yuan! Buy these high-performance phones during the 618 shopping festival, and winning games will be a breeze

Phones starting at 1999 yuan for the 618 shopping festival make winning games easy

【PhoneAuto】The annual 618 shopping festival will officially start tonight. Friends who have recently had the need to change their phones may have suppressed their desire to buy a new phone just to wait for today to get the best and most affordable price for a new phone.

That being said, there are so many new phones on the market recently, most of which focus on camera performance. Which phone should you buy if you like to play games?

Redmi Note 12 Turbo

In fact, there are many models to choose from if you like to play games, not just phones that are specifically designed for gaming. Some flagship or mid-to-high end phones that don’t heavily advertise their gaming performance can also provide excellent user experiences. I have been using the Huawei P40 Pro for three years. Before I bought it, I only thought this phone was a bit fashionable, had excellent camera performance, and was a bit expensive. But after using it, I realized that the daily user experience of this phone is really great. Even three years after its release, this phone can still run “Honor of Kings” without any lag, and the gaming experience is excellent.

Therefore, based on my good user experience over the past three years, the first phone I recommend to you today is the Huawei P60/P60 Pro.

The difference in configuration between the Huawei P60 and P60 Pro is not very significant, but the P60 is more than a thousand yuan cheaper and has a high cost performance ratio.

Both the Huawei P60 and P60 Pro are equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 4G processor. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 uses TSMC’s 4nm process and is the most powerful performer in the Android flagship field that will dominate in the second half of 2022.

Some people may be concerned that these two phones do not support 5G networks, but it is not necessary. The Huawei P40 Pro supports 5G networks, but I have rarely used 5G networks in the past three years. One reason is that the 5G network has not yet fully covered the area, and the other reason is that the 5G plans are indeed a bit expensive. I feel that the 4G network is completely sufficient. I believe that for the next few years, the 5G network will not become mainstream, and 4G phones will not be outdated.

If you want to have a first-class gaming experience, having an excellent screen is also very important. The Huawei P60 series is equipped with an LTPO dynamic high refresh rate screen, which supports 1-120Hz adaptive refresh rate, 1440Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, and 1.07 billion colors, which can bring clear and smooth visual experience. Not only that, the Huawei P60 series is also the world’s first mobile phone that supports dual Rhein professional color certification.

In terms of battery life and fast charging, the Huawei P60 series is equipped with a 4815mAh large-capacity battery. The P60 Pro supports 88W super wired fast charging, which can charge the battery to half in just 10 minutes. The P60 supports 66W super wired fast charging. Even if the phone is out of power, it can be charged halfway after a short rest.

One of the main differences between the Huawei P60 and P60 Pro is the telephoto camera. The Huawei P60 uses a 12 million pixel periscope telephoto camera, while the P60 Pro uses a 48 million pixel ultra-spotlight night vision telephoto camera, which can bring a better and more professional telephoto experience. If you like to play games and often use a telephoto lens to take pictures, you can directly choose the P60 Pro.

The second phone to recommend is the Meizu 20. As the first flagship product launched by Meizu after a restart, the Meizu 20 has balanced configurations in all aspects and a friendly price.

Meizu 20 series

First of all, in terms of appearance, the Meizu 20 is equipped with a 6.5-inch borderless screen. The 10-bit panel can achieve a display of 1.07 billion colors and supports 100% DCI-P3 wide color gamut. The contrast ratio is five million to one, allowing you to clearly see the contents on the screen under any lighting conditions. The ultra-narrow bezel of 1.57mm achieves a 93.7% ultra-large screen ratio, providing a wider field of view when playing games.

Meizu 20 Series

As for the core configuration, Meizu 20 is equipped with the second-generation Snapdragon 8 flagship processor, using TSMC’s 4nm process, with an architecture of “1+4+3”. The main core has been updated to Cortex-X3 Kryo ultra-large core, with a clock speed of up to 3.2GHz. Together with the combination of LPDDR5X+UFS4.0 super flash memory, it can bring smooth and fast experience whether playing large games, deep surfing, or taking high-intensity photos. Using Meizu 20 to play Genshin Impact, it can guarantee a stable frame rate of around 60 frames for half an hour of gaming, and it is also very smooth to open 120 frames to play Honor of Kings.

The heat control is also very good. Meizu 20 uses a 4000mm2 copper alloy thermal plate, with a 32243mm2 large-area graphite heat dissipation copper foil, plus the “Ice Edge” frame cooling technology, the heat dissipation is very fast. In the case of an indoor temperature of 27 degrees, playing Honor of Kings for two hours, the highest temperature of Meizu 20 is only about 36 degrees Celsius.

As for battery life and fast charging, the Meizu 20 is equipped with a 4700mAh battery and supports 67W Super mCharge super fast charging. It only takes 40 minutes to fully charge.

OnePlus updates its high-end flagship only once a year, with one update being able to manage for one year. In February of this year, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 11 flagship smartphone, which has very outstanding hardware configuration.

OnePlus 11

The OnePlus 11 is equipped with the second generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform, using TSMC’s 4nm process, achieving breakthroughs in both performance and energy consumption compared to previous generation products. Coupled with a full-blooded LPDDR5X+ UFS4.0 storage combination, the performance is very powerful. In the AnTuTu benchmark, we tested the OnePlus 11 and achieved a total score of 1323877, successfully topping the “January 2023 AnTuTu Android flagship phone performance ranking”.

Without further ado, we directly used the OnePlus 11 to play several rounds of “King of Glory” at high frame rates. In the frame rate test, the average frame rate of the OnePlus 11 can be maintained at 120.2 frames, and the experience is very stable and smooth throughout the entire game. Even in intense team battles, the frame rate of the OnePlus 11 can remain stable. We also played several rounds of “Genshin Impact” on the OnePlus 11. Even when opening the highest graphics quality, the frame rate performance is relatively stable, without too much fluctuation. Currently, the OnePlus 11 supports over 100 games with 120 frames per second mode.

In addition, the OnePlus 11 is also equipped with a biomimetic vibration motor, which is currently the largest X-axis linear motor on Android. With it, whether it’s daily typing or in-game gunshots, it can bring a more immersive user experience. In addition, to solve problems such as high ping and high latency in weak network environments, the OnePlus 11 also supports game cloud computing dedicated network, reducing high latency occurrences in weak network environments by 99.43% after 30 minutes of gameplay.

With a balanced configuration and competitive price-performance ratio, the iQOO Neo series has received a lot of praise in the market. In the recently launched iQOO Neo8 series, the official has introduced the Pro model for the first time in the Neo series. The iQOO Neo8 Pro fully maxes out the chip, storage, screen, imaging, battery and other configurations, taking the Neo series experience to a new level.

iQOO Neo8 Pro

Regarding its core performance, the iQOO Neo8 Pro is equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ chip, coupled with 16GB LPDDR5X and UFS4.0 storage. The Dimensity 9200+ adopts TSMC’s 4nm process. Its eight-core CPU includes one Arm Cortex-X3 ultra-large core with a frequency of up to 3.35GHz, three Arm Cortex-A715 large cores with a frequency of up to 3.0GHz, and four Arm Cortex-A510 energy-efficient cores with a frequency of 2.0GHz. It can run on different cores according to different usage scenarios, balancing performance and efficiency. After some adjustment by iQOO, the AnTuTu score of the iQOO Neo8 Pro reached 1.35 million points, showing first-class performance.

In addition, iQOO has also added its self-developed chip, the V1+, which improves gaming performance. The V1+ can increase the native 60 or 90 frames per second of a game to 120 or even 144 frames per second by inserting frames, effectively reducing screen tearing and stuttering while reducing energy consumption, making high-frame-rate gaming more sustainable and stable. We played “Genshin Impact” on the iQOO Neo8 Pro for an hour, with an average frame rate of 59.8 frames per second and power consumption of only 4W, which is quite impressive. After enabling high frame rate, the iQOO Neo8 Pro can also achieve full-frame rate for a long time when playing “King of Glory”, making the phone smooth and long-lasting.

In terms of heat dissipation, thanks to the iQOO Neo8 Pro’s 5K Ice Explosive VC three-dimensional heat dissipation system, which has a built-in ultra-thin VC heat dissipation plate of more than 5000mm2 and a multi-layer graphite heat dissipation of 7392mm2. When running “Genshin Impact” at high frame rates, the highest temperature of the iQOO Neo8 Pro’s back panel is only 40.2 degrees Celsius, so it won’t feel hot. When running “King of Glory” at 120Hz for an hour, the highest temperature of the back panel is about 41.1 degrees Celsius.

Thanks to its outstanding gaming performance, iQOO Neo8 Pro has become the official competition machine for the 9th King’s College League.

In late March of this year, Redmi launched a product named “Turbo” for the first time – Redmi Note 12 Turbo. The purpose of this product launch is to improve the experience level of mid-range products and let “mid-range products have flagship experience”.

Redmi Note 12 Turbo

In terms of processor configuration, Redmi Note 12 Turbo is equipped with the brand new second-generation Snapdragon 7+ chip. This chip was jointly defined by Qualcomm and Redmi, and is of the same origin as Snapdragon 8+. It also uses TSMC’s 4nm process and is equipped with the Cortex-X2 ultra-large core with a maximum main frequency of 2.91GHz internally. This brings Redmi Note 12 Turbo a usage experience almost identical to that of flagship phones.

Runs high frame rate “Genshin Impact” with a back panel temperature of 38.1°C

We ran Genshin Impact at a high frame rate on the Redmi Note 12 Turbo for twenty minutes and found that its average frame rate reached 58.8, and the highest temperature of the back panel of the device was only 38.1 degrees Celsius. This is an experience that cannot be achieved by products of the same price range in the past.
