Best Gaming capable android Phones you can easily buy in Kenya in 2020

Phones fashioned for gaming purposes are rarely seen on the Kenyan retail counters, but that doesn’t mean we can’t utilize conventional ones for the same course. It’s a segment we only see manufacturers focus in developed markets such as the United States with little attention to developing countries such as Kenya. However, there’s still adequate mainstream devices that can easily load and play games without an issue.

The gaming industry for a while had been left for the Xbox’s and Play Stations; however, modern android devices are just as adequately equipped to handle most games without an issue. In fact, most flagship devices announced last year and part of this year come with the latest specs in the industry to do just fine for gamers. We acknowledge the evolution that’s taking place within the gaming industry with newer games requiring certain hardware to run at optimal settings but then again there’s a reason why the likes of Samsung don’t have a separate gaming dedicated phone.

The hype has definitely continued to grow within the PC industry with the likes of HP Omen, Asus ROG and Dell Alienware dominating the industry. On the other hand, there are a couple of requirements that if an android phone meet, then it can comfortably handle common titles such as Fortnite, call of duty mobile and Pokémon Go.
