Top 5 smartphones for gaming

The technology behind smartphones has come on in leaps and bounds in recent times, allowing people to listen to music, watch movies and play games – amongst other things – using them.

These are five of the best for gaming, whether it is a simple game like roulette at a mobile casino Australia or a graphics-rich epic like Bladeslinger.

Samsung Galaxy S5

This Samsung smartphone offers a Super AMOLED screen with 1080-pixel resolution and superb colour balance – making the detailed graphics of Bladeslinger or Frontline Commando 2 crystal clear. On the downside, this screen is only 5.1 inches, while the £499.99 price tag is steep, but the Li-lon 2800 mAh battery lasts for ages.

iPhone 6 Plus

The screen offered by this iPhone model is 5.5 inches – way bigger than any previous iPhone model, making it the perfect Apple phone for the top graphics of iOS games like Modern Combat. This is combined with an A8 64-bit processor that delivers fast, smooth performance. You also get a battery with two-day lifespan, so the only downside is the huge £619 price.

HTC Desire Eye

This HTC phone provides you with strong performance from a quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 processor, while the 5.2-inch screen display is pretty good for either simple slots games or the super-detailed graphics on Shadowgun: Deadzone and similar games. The £350 price is reasonable too, but on the negative side, it can be bulky for long gaming periods.

OnePlus One

This is the cheapest smartphone on the list, at £229, but gives you lots of bang for that buck with a 5.5-inch screen and the Android 4.4.2 operating system. Overall it’s definitely a gaming smartphone that competes with costlier models.

LG Nexus 5

This LG Nexus 5 has the same quad-core Krait 400 processor as the costlier HTC phone, and also offers up to 32GB of memory. The price is good too, at £299, making it a fine gaming choice. The big downside is the fairly small screen, which measures just 4.95 inches – perhaps making it better suited to the simpler graphics of games like online roulette.

Any of these will be a good smartphone to pick for playing games on but, if you can afford it, the iPhone 6 Plus has unbeatable specs and games choice.
