League of Legends Wild Rift friendly smartphones under 5K

Pick your favorite champions and clash on the Summoner’s Rift on entry-level phones under 5K.

A big fan of League of Legends but don’t have a PC? Play the mobile version called Wild Rift and experience the Summoner’s Rift on-the-go. But if the budget is still an issue, which entry-level smartphones could handle the rift?

Here, we listed the budget-friendly devices capable of running League of Legends: Wild Rift and the possible tweaks to ensure smooth gameplay.

Disclaimer: The ping (ms) determines the device’s stable connection to the game’s server. The FPS represents the smoothness while running the game. The FPS shows if the phone is struggling or succeeding in running League of Legends: Wild Rift on different graphics settings.

TECNO SPARK Go 2024

The TECNO SPARK Go 2024 is powered by the Unisoc T606 CPU and comes with a 6.6-inch display panel and 90Hz refresh rate. It’s an entry-level smartphone designed for casual use and very light gaming.

The game can run on this entry-level handset, despite its hardware capabilities. But users must tone down a thing or two for stable gaming. Enable the default “performance” present in-game or go for custom. We recommend:

  • FPS: 60
  • Graphics: High
  • Effects: Medium
  • Resolution: Medium
  • Post-processing: Off
  • Character inking: Off

itel A70

This entry-level smartphone from itel is powered by the Unisoc T603. While it has a 6.6-inch display and 90Hz refresh rate, its CPU is slightly less powerful than the T606.

Obviously, choosing “performance” in the in-game graphics is the best move. But for stable gaming, we recommend:

  • FPS: 60
  • Graphics: Medium
  • Effects: Medium
  • Resolution: Medium
  • Post-processing: Off
  • Character inking: Off

Infinix SMART 8

The Infinix SMART 8 has the same bite as the first phone mentioned. This one sports Unisoc T606 as well, plus a 6.6-inch display and 90Hz refresh rate.

Running the game isn’t really an issue on this device. But we recommend the following in-game graphics settings:

  • FPS: 60
  • Graphics: Medium
  • Effects: Medium
  • Resolution: Medium
  • Post-processing: Off
  • Character inking: Off

Keep reading because we’ll mention what factor makes or breaks on this list.

itel A60s

Another itel making the list is the A60s. This budget phone is powered by an octa-core Unisoc processor as well. Its display spans 6.6 inches but only supports 60Hz of refresh rate.

The device can certainly do some light gaming but users should customize the graphics settings, so the game will run normally. We recommend choosing “performance” or go for custom with the following tweaks:

  • FPS: 60
  • Graphics: Low
  • Effects: Low
  • Resolution: Medium
  • Post-processing: Off
  • Character inking: Off

itel S23 4G

Another Unisoc T606 bearer is the itel S23 4G. It has a display size of 6.6 inches and comes with a 90Hz refresh rate. Depending on the variant, users may push this phone to a slightly higher graphics setting.

However, we recommend “performance” to avoid stutters, especially during clashes. Users may adjust the following as well:

  • FPS: 60
  • Graphics: High
  • Effects: Medium
  • Resolution: Medium
  • Post-processing: Off
  • Character inking: Off

POCO C65

The POCO C65 is the most powerful on this list but at an extra cost. This one is powered by MediaTek Helio G85, which topples the Unisoc SoCs in this article.

The phone has a screen size of 6.74 inches with a 90Hz refresh rate. Although “performance” is the preferred choice, users can apply the following and see what happens:

  • FPS: 90
  • Graphics: High
  • Effects: Medium
  • Resolution: High
  • Post-processing: Off
  • Character inking: Off

Storage and Memory

CPU isn’t the only metric of performance. A smartphone must have a big memory to run apps and games, and storage or else it will run out of space for patches and other things. Check the table below to know which of the devices is for you and your budget.

Phone ModelMemory (RAM)StorageSRP*
TECNO SPARK Go 20244 GB128 GB₱3,799
itel A704 GB128 GB₱3,999
Infinix SMART 83 GB64 GB₱3,599

itel S23 4G4/8 GB128 GB₱4,299
POCO6/8 GB128/256 GB₱5,499
The prices are obtained from a major online selling platform. Prices are subject to change.

Getting a budget phone with bigger RAM and storage will cost more, but it can handle more apps, games, and media files. Thus, think carefully because the margin of the list prices is not that huge.
