The Infinix NOTE 30 series could be the best budget gaming phone you could get, here's why


When we think about gaming phones, the ones that come to mind are flagship models with fancy designs and cutting-edge tech specs. Most non-flagship devices aren't quite intended for mobile gaming, but that's not always true.

For many, mobile gaming is more than just a casual hobby. So, it's just as important for these mobile gamers on a budget to get a gaming phone that delivers an awesome mobile gaming experience. With that in mind, here's why the Infinix NOTE 30 series could be the best budget gaming phone you could get.


More than powerful enough for below RM900!


The most important component of any gaming phone is the chipset. It has to excel at fast-paced lag-free gaming and for popular titles like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) the MediaTek Helio G99 chipset is a mid-range chipset designed for budget mobile gaming.

With the Infinix NOTE 30 series, you get MediaTek's lower mid-range Helio G99 6nm chipset which is more than enough to handle games like MLBB, PUBG Mobile or Free Fire. Coupled with the 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage and you have a gaming device that can install most huge games and then some.


Great display and smoother experience


Higher refresh rates for displays ensure smoother gameplay but most of the time, budget phones only tend to offer 60Hz to 90Hz refresh rates. The Infinix NOTE 30 series devices come with an up to 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD+ display, which has a 120Hz Dynamic Refresh Rate and a peak brightness of 900 nits, so it's a better budget mobile gaming phone for smoother gameplay.

Besides gaming, this display is great for watching movies since it can output 1 billion shades of colours. This means it can deliver more vivid and accurate colours, so movies are much more enjoyable. Even for those who love to browse the web and social media, the 120Hz screen makes all that constant scrolling a smoother experience.


Lasting battery and faster charging

Finally, the battery is great on the Infinix NOTE 30 series smartphones. Both come with a sizable 5000mAh battery that promises to last for hours while you're playing games. And even if you're running low, the phones can quickly juice up in no time with the All-Round FastCharge adapter. Thanks to the Bypass Charging feature you can also safely game even while charging!

Thankfully, the Infinix NOTE 30 and Infinix NOTE 30 Pro come with a 45W and 65W charger, respectively. Even the 45W All-Round FastCharge can charge from 1% to 75% in just 30 minutes, so you can quickly get back to gaming. Both phones also support reverse charging and bypass charging. In addition, you get 15W wireless charging on the Pro model.


Sounds pretty good, right? And you get all of that for less than RM900! The way we see it, the Infinix NOTE 30 series offers excellent value for what it delivers. If what you need is a budget gaming phone with the above features, you can't go wrong with the Infinix NOTE 30 or Infinix NOTE 30 Pro. For more info, visit the official Infinix Malaysia website.
