Battle Royale games have seen a surge in the past few years with games like PUBG Mobile, COD Mobile and Fortnite Mobile raking in millions of active players. While skills and strategy are important to excel at a game like PUBG Mobile, your device can also make a difference.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 - Budget

The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. This processor is a good choice for some heavy-duty gaming. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is available in three RAM configurations – 3 GB, 4 GB and 6 GB. The device is able to play PUBG Mobile smoothly on medium settings for long hours of gameplay without a hitch. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2's Snapdragon 660 can also handle playing PUBG Mobile on high settings without any lags or stutters. The phone’s lower price point also gives you value for money. 

OnePlus 8 Pro - Mid Range

At a higher price point than the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, you can get the One Plus 8 Pro with the OxygenOS based on Android 10 and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. It has an Adreno 650 GPU with 8 GB RAM. If you need a phone with robust specs to run PUBG Mobile on the highest graphics settings, the OnePlus 8 Pro is for you. With 8 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 865 chipset, the memory and processing power make for a great gaming experience. OxygenOS also offers the Fnatic mode, which limits notifications for alarms and calls and also lets you set up custom notifications for displaying messages while in-game.

iPhone 11 Pro Max - Pro

Despite not being a gaming-oriented smartphone, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the choice of most pros in the scene. Apple’s A13 Bionic Chipset with its state-of-the-art GPU is one of the most powerful chipsets ever seen on a smartphone to date. PUBG Mobile runs at max settings by default and the gameplay is ultra-smooth. The iPhone lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack and does not have any specific gaming modes or accessories, Apple’s optimizations more than make up for it.
