With those specs, it may well be a fresh pick for our list of the best budget gaming phones.

Compared to its pricer family members, the K70E has a bigger battery at 5,500mAh rather than 5000mAh. The battery charges at 90W, which is significantly lower than the 120W of the other K Series devices, but it’s still fast.

Camera-wise, the K70E differs from the K70 and K70 Pro in that the primary shooter is 64MP but via a small sensor, which makes all the difference in image quality. There’s also an 8MP ultra-wide, a macro cam, and a 16MP selfie shooter.
