More people than ever are now opting to game on their mobile phones rather than on desktops and consoles, and it’s easy to see why. They’re capable of producing gaming experiences that are out of this world, while allowing the user to play whenever they like and from wherever they are. So, no matter what sort of gamer you are, a novice to the most experienced. If you prefer action games, a fan of puzzlers, like to chat with friends whilst doing bingo or prefer sport simulators; there are some great devices to choose from, and here are some of the best.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
The soon to be released Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is the latest handset from the world’s leading smartphone developers. It is by far and away the best gaming phone on the planet and will be the handset of choice for many mobile gaming enthusiasts. Under the hood the S10 Plus packs a real punch with an updated processor, which will either be the Snapdragon 855 or the Exynos 9820 region depending, a monstrous 12GB of RAM and on-board storage of 1TB.
The S10 Plus, as expected, will feature the highest quality graphics around, which makes it perfect for the very latest games, while the 4,100mAh battery ensures that gaming on the go isn’t an issue. It’s an expensive handset in comparison to others on the market, but it really delivers as a gaming device with aplomb.
Razer Phone 2
Razer have become renowned for producing great smartphones which are built for gaming, with the Razer Phone performing extraordinarily well, and they have built on that impressive release with the Razer Phone 2. Razer in effect took everything that was good about the original handset and improved it tenfold, with an increase in power, better screen capabilities and louder speakers.
Where the screen is concerned, Razer have ensured their large 5.7” display is crystal clear with 513 pixels per inch, while an increased refresh rate of 120Hz means there will be no lag or stuttering. Gaming focused smartphones are prone to overheating too, but not the Razer Phone 2 as it has improved its cooling system considerably, which enables the processor and RAM to really get to work. The Razer Phone 2 is a gaming smartphone, for gamers, by gaming experts.
Apple iPhone XR
We had to include an iPhone on this list as they’re so popular, and so many iPhone owners are mobile gamers too. When it comes to mobile gaming, many people will opt for Android based devices, but this handset more than proves that iOS can produce stunning gaming experiences too.
The first thing to note with the XR is that the screen size is a mammoth 6.1”, with a lot of mobile gamers feeling that size really does matter in this instance. Under the hood is the latest A12 bionic processor, which is blazing fast and capable of handling even the most demanding of games, while the onboard battery can more than hold its own for long gaming sessions. What also has to be taken into consideration where the XR is concerned is the huge game library available for iOS based devices, and this is one of the main reasons as to why it’s one of the finest mobile gaming devices around.
