The technology that powers the mobile phone has progressed at a bewildering pace over the past few years, with these devices now able to be used for working, playing music or gaming – whether it be basic online casino games you can find at www.mobilecasino.co.nz or the high grade graphics of ones such as Real Racing. These are the five top gaming smartphones around just now.
1. HTC One M10
The new version of this HTC phone is something of a dark horse contender when it comes to the top gaming smartphones, but its processor (the Qualcomm Snapdragon 812) gives it 3.5 GHz, making it more than powerful enough for any kind of game. It also ensures those high end ones, like Real Racing and Dead Trigger 2, will play minus lag, thanks to RAM of 4GB. Finally the battery has 3400 mAh life span, so you can spend the night on a poker battle or complex RPG without worrying.
2. iPhone 7
Although they have often fallen short in certain crucial gaming specs, e.g. screen size, compared with Android phones, the iPhone has always been considered one of the best – mainly because of iOS-exclusive games. However the iPhone 7 will feature a thinner build than previous models, at 6.1 mm rather than 6.9, which will make it a more comfortable phone to hold when gaming. It is also set to feature a screen going from edge to edge, maximising the space to give the best visual experience, making it a real contender.
3. Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung has long sought to tailor its smartphones to the gaming demographic and the Galaxy S7 is no exception. As with the HTC One M10, this has 4GB of RAM, so freezing or lagging at a crucial moment in a casino game or the height of the Need for Speed action will not be an issue. It also has an improved Exynos 3.5 GHz processor for power and 5.5-inch screen display. Given the superb graphics that come with games like Need for Speed and Dead Trigger 2, this makes it pretty much a gamer’s dream.
4. LG G5
LG is another company that has consciously targeted gamers and its G5 smartphone delivers processing power via an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor boasting 2.9 GHz; and a potential maximum 128 GB of internal storage space. This means that you can keep loads of games on it with causing slowdown. However, the capper for this phone is its 5.6-inch high definition screen, which offers stunning colour and clarity.
5. Google Nexus 6P
This is another phone that delivers a raft of superb gaming specs, including a Snapdragon 810 processor and spectacular 5.7-inch screen with AMOLED tech. On top of this it also has an Adreno 430 graphics chip, for ensuring high end graphics are displayed to optimum effect. Throw in RAM of 3G, for speedy flow, and you have a smartphone with everything required from a games perspective.
It is genuinely difficult to say which of these five phones is best for gaming, but perhaps the LG G5 just takes the prize in terms of overall specs.
