Asus ROG Phone
The ROG tag means a lot in the gaming community, and the ROG phone, with its aggressive design, a 90Hz screen, a secondary USB-C port for accessories and dedicated air triggers certainly packs an edge over the Black Shark. However, with an older Snapdragon 845 processor, and with a new model around the corner, it is not the best option at Rs. 69,999.
Razer Phone 2
In its second generation now, the Razer phone does not look or feel like a gaming phone, with a slim all-glass body. However, the specifications do not lie as it features a 120Hz LCD display with better resolution and pixel density, a Snapdragon 845+8 GB RAM combo, Dolby Atmos stereo speakers and a dedicated game mode. Unfortunately, it does not do much else good enough to justify the Rs. 59,999 price tag.
