There are many reasons why you may choose one smartphone or mobile device from another, from its design to the number of applications that it provides you with access to. Gamers will look to optimise their experience while enjoying their favourite titles and genres. With this in mind, here are some of the best gaming smartphones from the last twelve months:
The iPhone 6 Plus
A new addition to the list, the fast-selling iPhone 6 is arguably the first Apple handset to boast an exceptional range and quality of games. This is thanks primarily to the development of a brand new graphics engine, which is called Metal and delivers a higher quality of game play and a much improved visual effect. The bigger screen of the iPhone 6 Plus helps too. When you couple this with Apple’s ever widening range of games and applications, you have a potent combination that makes the iPhone 6 an excellent gaming handset.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3
If the year to date is anything to go by, Samsung may need to become accustomed to coming second to Apple in the great smartphone war. They are still capable of producing an excellent gaming phone, however, as the Galaxy Note 3 has a Super AMOLED touchscreen, a powerful Adreno 330 GPU and a quad-core 2.3 Ghz Krait 400 that delivers an outstanding visual experience for users. It is also renowned for producing excellent sound effects, which is ideal for gamers who enjoy playing a wide range of online slots games. With fantastic graphics and realistic yet effective gameplay, you can see why the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a top choice for gamers!
Nokia Lumia 1520
This is the only Windows Phone on the list, although it only just edged out the mammoth HTC One that was released this summer. The Nokia Lumia 1520 may not boast as many games or as much variation as either the iPhone 6 or the Galaxy Note 3, but it does provide users with exclusive access to some of the most sought after titles on the market. It also has a mammoth display that delivers something of an epic visual gaming experience, with a 6 inch screen and a pixel density of 367ppi. Oh, and did we say it was touchscreen too?
