The Phantom Black model looks great in daylight, and the value-added features on the back make it even more beautiful for gamers.

Users can also customize lighting with numerous colors and several preset mood lighting schemes.

A second port in the middle (landscape mode) is useful for connecting accessories like the AeroActive Cooler 6 to reduce heat, graphics-rich games or when using a battery pack to make the phone last longer.

It’s also one of the few handsets with a 3.5mm audio jack, so you can put on your favorite wired headphones and get lagness audio sync while playing like battle royale, shooter, or adventure action . genre video games.

The company also offers a high-quality thin case with thick cushions on the four edges to ensure your phone can withstand accidental drops. It also doesn’t add too much weight or thickness to your phone. Yes, the phone is large for the average user, but the case provides more grip for your fingers to hold the phone.
