We all have different ways of using our phones, and modern smartphones tend to cater for them all. While some people use their phones mainly for calls and texting, for other people their smartphone is literally the centre of their life – and their entire social and work lives revolve around it. For many people the most important aspect of their phones is playing games and online gaming, so here we will look at some of the things you should consider when buying a phone that will provide you with the best gaming experience.
The first thing you need to consider is the availability of the games, particularly online games. Over recent years games developers have concentrated on developing games for the iPhone and Android phones, with the result that there are many of them around that can be downloaded from iTunes, Google Play, and online games such as Ladbrokes, follow the link to try it. More apps are becoming available for the new Windows 8 phones, but it will be some time before they catch up with the competition.
The graphics capability of your phone is very important. You should go for a display that has high resolution and is large enough for you, and that can render smooth fast graphics. Most of the high-end Android phones fall into this category with screens up to 5.5 inches diagonally, as do the iPhones, though the iPhone 3S’ 3.5 inch screen is beginning to look a little small compared with these and the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5.
The smoothness of the graphics is, to a large extent, a function of the microprocessor at the heart of your phone; generally the faster the processor, the faster the graphics. The latest Android and Apple phones have very fast processors.
When you are playing online games you need good connectivity and the new 4G networks promise a much better online experience than 3G, so ensure that your gaming phone is 4G-enabled.
