Flagship phones are getting crazy expensive. Our current top pick for a money-no-object gaming phone is the iPhone XS Max, with a starting price of £1,100.

Most normal people simply aren't prepared to drop that sort of money on a fragile device that will be due for replacement in just two years. That's gaming PC or 4K TV money.

Thankfully, the mid-range of the smartphone market has responded in kind. You can get a seriously impressive phone that can run all the latest games (or those available on Android, at least) for a third of the price of Apple's latest.

Sure, you might have to compromise somewhere along the line. But not as much as you might think.

If £400 is still a little too rich for you, we can go even lower. We'll be rounding up the best gaming phones for under £200 shortly.
