    What a great idea! Will this shaver attachment snap onto a regular phone?

    Does the world really need a "gaming phone"? So they took a Galaxy S8/S9+ and stuck a controller on the end of it. Xiaomi makes it. One of the most no-name brands out there, so I can't imagine the quality will be anywhere worth buying.

    Yes it darn well does... but then, it also needs games that are good to play on a phone. Most of thems what are out there are utterly abysmal anyway.

    Xiaomi is the worlds 4th largest phone manufacturer and makes some very good quality phones, for example the Mi Mix 2s.
    They are probably the best bang for buck OEM out there.

    Gaming Phone...... lol

    Who the hell would pay more to play angry birds or some other 20 year old looking game on a phone?

    I wonder about people that buy phones they need locking up for there own good I swear.

    Personally i don't think it does... Then again maybe those young people walking around with their heads in their phones like bumping into lamp posts.

    Does the world need a gaming phone? Probably not. Are there people in the world who would like a gaming phone? Quite possibly.

    I have an Android gaming "tablet" (a proper cheap one) that's not much bigger than many phones. It's several years old, was a long way off top of the range even then, and it's a very usable gaming handheld. There's plenty of companies doing mobile phone games using standard controls emulated on a touch screen, without even considering console emulation, so I suspect there's a small but lucrative market for a device that's multi-purpose but optimised for playing games...

    Xiaomi a no-name brand? Where have you been living? They're considered China's "Apple". They pretty much kickstarted the current bezel-less craze with the Mi Mix about two years ago. Make of that what you will, but rest assured that many people in the western hemisphere are eagerly awaiting for Xiaomi's products to get regular availability (as in: no grey market imports) here.

    All that being said, I'm not keen on the "gaming" aspect and the add-on looks positively hideous.

    And I can see Wh00pS beat me to defending Xiaomi.

    playing final fantasy on my mobile has been great but it kills the battery.

    would a gaming phone with more emphasis on active cooling help keep battery temps low and thus prolong it's life?

    But...what about the most important question if this is a "gaming" phone.

    How many LEDs does it have?

    Because at the end of the day, it’s just a pimped up Android phone.

    PUBG runs better on my phone than most PCs. Fortnite runs amazingly well on Apple phones. Nintendo has Mario Kart on the way to phones. Lots of Final Fantasy games have come to the platforms. The age of "playing some dumb puzzle game on the way to work" is over.
