Top 5 Mobile Legends phones for lower budget

If you’re on a budget but still want to play Mobile Legends, you’re in luck! We’ve compiled a list of the top 5 budget-friendly smartphones that can handle the game. Please note that this list is not in any particular order.

Tecno Pova 4 Pro

Highest Graphic Settings Available:

Refresh rate – High

Graphics – High

This Tecno Pova 4 Pro is capable using the High graphics settings option. This enhances the overall visual experience of the game by improving the graphics quality, making the game look more realistic and immersive.

Adding to that, it also has the High refresh rate option. Higher refresh rate enhances the overall visual experience of the game by reducing motion blur and providing smoother animations. This Tecno Pova 4 Pro has 90Hz refresh rate which is enough to play with game with a more fluid experience.

Although the phone does not have the highest refresh rate that anyone would love, it still offers a decent performance in fast-paced games like Mobile Legends, where split-second decisions can make all the difference. At for what its worth, it is still a great phone for gaming.

Price :

8GB/128GB – ₱9,699

8GB/256GB – ₱10,290

Infinix Note 12 G96

Highest Graphic Settings Available:

Refresh rate – High

Graphics – Ultra

The Infinix Note 12 G96 has an advantage with the Helio G96 chipset. Expect excellent power management at good heat management when using this phone.

Apart from that, It has the ultra graphics settings which is the highest graphics settings in the game. With this, you’ll be able to see more details in the game environment, including obstacles, terrain, and enemies, making it easier to navigate and strategize.


8GB/128GB – ₱8,999

8GB/256GB – ₱9,899

iPhone XR

Highest Graphic Settings Available:

Refresh rate – High

Graphics – Ultra

I know that we mentioned that this would be a list of budget phones but we think that the iPhone XR is the best ML iPhone on a budget. It’s also the most used phone by many streamers/pros and is the best selling iPhone last year in the Philippines.

It’s no surprise why many pros are using this, apart from the very accessible price, it provides the smoothest multi touch experience in any phone at this price range. Pulling off combos for assassins is much more doable on this phone compared to the others mentioned on this list.

Adding to that, since it has a powerful A12 bionic chip, the graphics look as gorgeous as you would find on most flagship phones today. It can even be compared to the likes of the iPhone 14 pro Max/Samsung Galaxy s23 Ultra but minus the OLED display.

Price: Greenhills

64gb : ₱13,000 -₱14,000

realme 10

Highest Graphic Settings Available:

Refresh rate – High

Graphics – Ultra

The realme 10 offers nothing extravagant for the price being offered. That however, does not dismiss the fact that it delivers a good Mobile Legends performance in all categories. The touch response is also up to the competition so no issue there. But to a techie standpoint, we can find better options.

It also has a Helio G99 chipset that’s both energy-efficient and performs well on gaming.


8GB/128GB – ₱12,999

8GB/256GB – ₱14,999


Highest Graphics Settings Available:

Refresh rate – Ultra

Graphics – Ultra

The POCO X4 GT is the only phone on this list which checks all the box on the Highest Graphics setting with both Ultra refresh rate and Ultra graphics. The MediaTek Dimensity 8100 and its Mali-G610 MP6 integrated GPU make the phone a powerful phone for gaming.

A demanding title such as Mobile Legends plays smoothly at the highest settings. You can definitely get frame rates above 30 FPS at “HD/High/Ultra” settings, but the phone doesn’t allow anything more than that – probably to limit power usage.


8GB/128GB – ₱ 18,990

8GB/256GB –₱ 19,990
