Ever since the launch of the Metaverse, smartphones have become increasingly important as an access point to it. The number of smartphone users continues to grow at an impressive rate worldwide, and there are many developers creating Metaverse-compatible apps that you can use with your smartphone. Here are 10 of the most widely used Metaverse-compatible smartphones on the market today… Metaverse-Compatible Smartphones: The Top 10
HTC Vive Focus
Table of Contents
The Vive Focus offers an incredibly unique Metaverse experience, though it only works with a limited number of devices. However, unlike many of its competitors on our list, it’s available for purchase as a standalone headset. That means you can use it to access virtual worlds from your PC and then put it away when you’re not using it. It can be pricey, but if you want to take advantage of cutting-edge technology without having to buy a new phone or computer first, then there’s no better option than Vive Focus.

HTC Vive Pro
Manufactured by HTC, Vive Pro is a high-end headset that runs with an impressive 90Hz refresh rate and improved resolution, making it perfect for current VR games and experiences. The Vive Pro also sports built-in headphones to provide immersive sound when playing a variety of games and video content. PCMag gave HTC’s new headset 4/5 stars, noting that Vive Pro is ready for future VR developments while detailing its crisp image quality and ability to fit glasses wearers comfortably.
Starting at $799, Vive Pro requires an additional processing unit (which PCMag gave 4/5 stars) to operate – however neither components require wires or external sensors to work together.
HTC Vive Cosmos
HTC has just announced their new Exodus 1 smartphone—which is compatible with Metaverse. This is a huge move for HTC, who has been moving away from mobile and into virtual reality—and it might be a sign that some of their other smartphone lines will soon follow suit. Or maybe not, given that many tech experts have lambasted Exodus 1 for being an overpriced gaming phone (although it does have a lot of forward-thinking features and technology). However, given that HTC was one of three companies founded by Bill Gates (the others being Microsoft and Intel), there’s no telling what they have planned in store.
HTC Exodus 1
What makes HTC’s latest smartphones, announced at CES 2019, so exciting for Augmented Reality and virtual reality enthusiasts? For starters, these phones are Metaverse compatible. They support all of Metaverse’s best features – including 7th Sense. What exactly is 7th Sense? It’s a combination of computer vision, sensor fusion and artificial intelligence (AI) that integrates real world elements into virtual environments. In other words, a person wearing an HTC Exodus phone will be able to see other people in their augmented reality environment when they encounter them in person. And they’ll be able to interact with them too!
ASUS ZenFone 6
ZenFone 6 is a next generation mobile phone produced by ASUS. It was released at November 16, 2033. ZenFone 6 combines some new functions, and supports Metaverse. In addition, ZenFone 6 has better hardware performance than before versions; it has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM; its operating system is Android 5.0 (upgradeable to Android 5.1). And it uses 4100mAh Li-polymer battery, which can support 8 hours of online chatting on 4G network.
Google Pixel 3 XL
Google is taking a bold step with their latest smartphone, even if it isn’t entirely their own idea. With Pixel 3 XL, Google has created a phone that is capable of mapping out its user’s body and overlaying that data into Metaverse objects. Users who want to make themselves more life-like in VR will be able to use their smartphone camera to upload accurate photos of what they actually look like, instead of relying on generic avatars. Google says that users will be able to take these pictures at any angle thanks to an included 4D scanner; details are scant for now but we expect we’ll learn more about how exactly that works when Pixel 3 hits shelves in October. The cost?
Razer Phone 2
Though it was technically launched in 2017, Razer’s second smartphone finally became available for purchase earlier in 2018. Fans of its original model will be pleased to know that many of its best features made it into version 2. It boasts a 120Hz IGZO display and Dolby Atmos technology, so your games will look great and sound even better! In addition, it supports all Steam VR content along with Google Daydream functionality. If you’ve been holding out for a top-of-the-line gaming phone, then you won’t want to miss out on what Razer has been working on lately!
Asus ROG Phone 2
ROG (Republic of Gamers) is always first to market with innovative products for PC gamers, and ROG Phone 2 continues that tradition. It comes with a massive battery, high quality screen, and lots of extra bells and whistles for on-the-go gaming. Plus, it’s compatible with Metaverse by default—no additional settings needed! If you’re an avid gamer who needs access to your games while on the go, or if you just want to see what all the fuss is about, this phone has everything you need.
Lenovo Z5 Pro GT Edition
*Price $300* – *Rating 4.9/5* -Lenovo Z5 Pro GT Edition is built with a customized Android OS that enables AR interactions, which means you can experience Metaverse in your own way, and more importantly with your favorite applications like Instagram. It’s also built with an octocore Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and comes equipped with 2GB of RAM. However, if you want to use Lenovo Z5 Pro GT Edition as a standalone smartphone, it has plenty of other features that make it worth using including 6GB of ROM space and dual-rear cameras. On top of all that it’s even got a great battery life!
