You may be looking at the title and wondering to yourself, ” Don’t you need a console of some description to play a video game?” Well, let me be the first person to tell you that you are wrong. Today, we are in the year of 2017, and this means that technology has evolved in a significant way over the past few years. You are now able to play world famous games such as FIFA on your smartphone, and this means you do not have to go out and spend hundreds of pounds on a console. Below I am going to detail the different types of mobile phone in which you can use to play video games on.


Best mobile phone for gaming

Apple iPhone 7 Plus

It may come of no surprise to any of you that an Apple device is on this list. This is because each year Apple will always outdo themselves with each mobile phone they put out every year. For example, these improvements each year can be enhanced graphics for gaming or even a larger screen for gaming. The release of the iPhone seven plus further proves my point as the current Apple vice president commented on the gaming features in this phone. The vice president of Apple commented on how they have included a new chip in the phone called an A10 Fusion. What is so impressive about this chip in the iPhone seven plus is that it has allowed the smartphone to run at faster speeds. This is great for Apple as not only does it show that they are always striving to improve on their mobile phone releases each year but it is also good news for gaming on phones. This is good news for gaming on phones as now it enhances the performance of the phone which means the games will have better graphics and will be less prone to certain jumps in graphic intensive video games. The iPhone seven plus is an excellent large screen phone for whatever type of video game you would like to play.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

This smartphone is said to be the winner of the debate between which smartphone is the best for gaming. The reason to why people say that this phone is the best for gaming is mainly because of the Snapdragon 820 processor. This is by far the best processor that has been in gaming in recent years as it allows high graphic intensive games such as Call Of Duty mobile games to run smoothly on smartphones. What also is impressive about this phone is the four gigabytes of memory in which this mobile phone can hold. This means that the graphic intensive games can run smoothly without continuous jumps or glitches while playing a video game. Trust me lags and jumps in video games are by far one of the worst things that could happen to any of us gamers. I also nearly forgot to mention the 5.5-inch screen with curved edges in which you play the video game on. By having a display this size, it allows you to take in the beauty of not only the graphics of the game, but it also allows you to see more of the game by just looking at a larger screen. The bottom line is that with having a processor as powerful as the Snapdragon 820 processor, you cannot go wrong by playing video games on this smartphone.

HTC 10

To conclude, this is a great smartphone to play video games on especially if you love to play your video games with loud volume. I say this because the HTC 10 now has multiple speakers on the phone and each speaker is used for a different reason. For example, the top speaker is front facing so not only can you hear well from the top of the phone but the top speaker is also utilised for high and medium frequency sounds. Now instead of having a speaker at the back of the mobile phone, there is now a speaker at the base of the phone. This speaker is utilised for lower frequency sounds, so this means both ends of the phones provide different output for a more realistic approach to gaming.
