The world of gaming phones has been growing rapidly over the last few years, but finding a
budget option is not an easy feat. You obviously would want the latest, flagship processor with
an ample amount of RAM and battery life. In this article, we’ll take a look at a few of the best budget gaming phones so far in 2020.

The budget phone segment between Rs 10,000 and Rs 20,000 is one of the hotly contested in
the Indian market.

In the mentioned segment, brands are offering phones with triple or quad rear cameras, a massive 5,000mAh battery, a big display and more. A few smartphones also feature an in-display fingerprint scanner for authentication. One will also find a pop-up selfie camera phone as well as a device with a modern punch-hole display design. All these features are available on phones under Rs 20,000 price point.

Take for instance the newly launched Redmi Note 9 Pro or the Realme 6 Pro or even the Poco
X2. These smartphones come with either 4GB or higher RAM options and feature one of the fastest processors, making it ideal for gaming as well.

This phone isn’t a successor to the Poco F1, and as a result, doesn’t have a flagship chipset. Is that a compromise? That depends upon your expectations. Powering the phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, a gaming-centric 7-series SoC that’s been paired with up to 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB UFS 2.1 storage. Good enough hardware.

Though we would like to bring to your notice that gaming on the Poco X2 should have been far more superior to other smartphones in this segment, that doesn’t seem to be the case. It is supportive of all games which other phones in this segment support. 

Poco X2 – Battery Specifications

This phone rocks a 4500mAh battery under the hood. The amazing phone also comes with a 27W charger out of the box which is something unique to see. The charging adapter is kind of big though but tops up the battery to full capacity in a little over an hour. Real quick right? Well, this is a pretty good thing, you will be good to go in just an hour of charging.

Poco X2 – Camera Specifications

64 megapixels is the flavour of the season. So Poco X2 packs a 64MP camera in the quad-camera stack. We know that it’s larger than the 1/2” IMX586 sensor and measures at 1/1.7” while the lens has an aperture of f/1.9. There’s another 8MP ultrawide lens with f/2.2 aperture and two 2MP lenses for macro photos and depth-sensing respectively. There are two cameras including a 20MP selfie shooter and 2MP depth sensor. 

The dedicated night mode is pretty good. It follows the same principle of fusing multiple images and it’s seemingly faster than the previous generation night mode. A big downside is you can only capture stationary objects using the night mode.

Also, only the primary sensor and the telephoto camera support night mode. The 2MP macro lens, It’s also only good for using when there’s enough light. The aperture is just too small to use in low-light. The macro lens shows a huge shift in colour from the primary and wide-angle lens.

Poco X2 – Display Specs

You get a unique design that uses Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides along with nicely curved edges and a rather big body. The display, on the other hand, is unique. The phone also owns a 6.67-inch IPS LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate. But other than the UI, you won’t have any other apps supporting the high refresh rate and getting smoother. You can downgrade the panel to 60Hz but the 120Hz mode doesn’t consume too much battery.


Well, it won’t be too much if we say that the Poco X2 ticks all the boxes in the spec-sheet. It is a budget-friendly ultimate phone which has great specifications. The 120Hz refresh rate display is something really good to see in this segment. Snapdragon 730G for Rs 15,999 is pretty amazing! and that’s why we consider this phone in the list of gaming phones under 20000.
