    Hopefully its more the case that these games will support a docked mode as that we really have more portal gaming machines like the switch. I can't speak for fortnite but PUBG mobile is every bit a full-fat game which actually has slightly more functionality than it's PC counterpart. It runs well on a phone but is a poor experience because of tiny screens. If however you connect it to your TV, plug in a keyboard/mouse setup..and it runs like a dream.

    So whilst this phone is a bit of a joke and a bit pointless, the principle behind "gaming phones" that can dock is a good one that i hope is expanded.

    I wonder about people that buy phones they need locking up for there own good I swear.
    Gosh, so much hate on this thread...
    Yes, depending on different contexts and different people lives, there is a market for gaming phones.

    Some people don't need a PC or have time for playing it (same for "fixed" gaming consoles).
    Some people don't need laptops.
    Some people are casual gamers and find no benefit on buying a smartphone + a portable gaming console (or a high end tablet).

    By the way, you are a little misinformed about mobile games... it has moved on from Angry Birds and Flappy Bird era you know...
