In the thriving mobile gaming industry which has gone from strength to strength over the last ten years, three genres have emerged which are more successful than any others. Few would be surprised to hear that puzzle, strategy, and first-person shooter games are near the top of the tree in terms of revenue generated. Some of the biggest mobile games of all time including Candy Crush, Clash of Clans, and PUBG Mobile belong to these genres. The question is, will these types of game continue to dominate, or will another genre come along and usurp them?
Huawei is having a bad time. You wouldn't know it by looking at the Mate 30 Pro, a gleaming piece of kit that exudes luxury and cutting-edge tech. But then you unlock the phone and reality comes crashing in: there's no Gmail on this thing, or YouTube, or Google Maps. Worse, there's nothing Huawei can do to help. You're supposed to find your own alternatives, hunt down APKs on third-party app stores, or resort to web apps.
The Red Magic 3S is a smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, a 5,000 mAh battery, a least 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.0 storage, a 48MP camera, a metal chassis, and a 6.65 inch, 2340 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display with a 90Hz screen refresh rate. In other words, if you can get past the gaming aesthetic in this phone's design (including an angular rear cover with an RGB light strip down the middle), it's just a phone with flagship-class specs at a surprisingly low price. The starting price gets you a model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but you can also pick up a 12GB/256GB model for $599.
AMD's performance claims should put the Radeon VII on par with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080. It had better, as the Radeon VII will occupy the same $699 price point when it becomes available in February.
