Gaming smartphones was a relatively small trend in 2018. We only saw a handful of devices in this category, but it could be bigger in 2019. Razer is already on their second generation gaming device, the Razer Phone 2.

Is this still the gaming phone to beat? Or are there better options on the market now?
