League of Legends: Wild Rift is still in its beta phase, growing in popularity worldwide with every new update and server expansion. 

The League of Legends' mobile-based MOBA is one of the most popular mobile games in 2021 and continues to receive overwhelming responses from gamers worldwide.

The League of Legends PC version had already gained a legendary tag in the world of professional Esports. With regular updates and improvisations, Riot now aims to give Wild Rift a similar standard.

Wild Rift is a technically demanding game, and to experience the game's competitiveness to the fullest, it is essential to possess a well configured, smooth-running smartphone. The game is available to play for free both in the Android and iOS stores.

The A14 chip makes it super efficient for running the game at high graphics and fps. Wild Rift has been fully optimized for the A14 too. At the iPhone 12 launch event, Apple called Riot devs out onto the stage to speak about the work they had been doing together.

According to Riot Games Executive Producer Michael Chow,

iPhone 12's A14 enables a brand new level of fidelity that you can't find on any other platform. With off-the-charts GPU performance and frames per second, you get amazing details and fluid gameplay - even in the most chaotic team fights".

The mobile phone also runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor offering the best possible gaming experience. The 7-magnet stereo loudspeakers are perfect for an ecstatic gaming ambiance and support side charging that allows un-interrupted play.

Adding on to all positives, Asus ROG Phone 3 has a rapid 144Hz refresh rate, which is more than twice as fluid as its 60Hz iOS rival.

Apple Phones:
