Top 10 Best Gaming Smartphones of 2016
There’s a bunch of smartphone users out there that are complaining very often about the performance of their smartphone while playing games. Most of them are right.. I guess. But it’s a fact that you can find some smartphones that seriously are gaming beasts. Specifically, some of them were created for that purpose. Display, RAM, CPU are some factors that have a direct impact on the performance of the device while you are playing your favorite games. So If you want to enjoy your favorite games have a look here.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S6
As I mentioned, one of the most important factors for a qualitative gaming experience is the display. Samsung Galaxy S6 has got a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16 million colors. Moreover, it has a main difference from S5, the resolution. It’s equipped with a Quad HD display, which is so called because it offers four times the number of pixels of a 720p display!! Just imagine the visual orgasms. Also, we should take into account the chipset which is an Exynos 7420 Octa(customized especially for it), something unusual compared to other Android devices. A really fast processor that brings gaming performance to another level. Be sure that thiscpu can easily support intensive games. In addition, Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with 3GB RAM. If you manage it right, you have plenty memory for every type of game.
SONY XPERIA Z3+
Sony has released several devices which were promoted as “good for gaming”, but I think the most successful of their smartphones with the tag of “gaming phone” is Sony Xperia Z3+. Z3+ comes with a IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16 million colors display. Also, If you are a fan of gaming cinematics Z3+ supports video on 2160p @ 30 frames per second, 1080p@60fps or 720p@120fps. Additionally, it is equipped with 3GB RAM as Samsung Galaxy S6. Adequate memory for a smartphone, in my opinion. Regarding the chipset, Sony didn’t take the initiative to use a customized chipset as Samsung Galaxy S6 did, but they used a Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 which in a combination with the GPU Adreno 430, handle the intensive gaming very good. Generally users are very satisfied with the gaming experience of Sony Xperia Z3+ with the exception of some complaints about the heating of the device while playing. However, that oveerheating doesn’t affect the performance at all.
ACER PREDATOR 6
I may sound cursory about this device because it hasn’t been released yet, but according to its specs, announcements and generally the concept that Acer is trying to promote, it’s going to be an epic smartphone. Everything from design to features, gives you the sense of “the perfect gaming smartphone”. The Predator 6 phone has both the looks and specs to impress. It is equipped with a 6-inch display and some whopping(?) 4GB RAM. It also runs on the beastly deca-core MediaTek processor Helio X20. Well, nobody can be sure about its performance yet but at least its design and photos have made a lot of gamers very happy.
The LG G4 has two major features that satisfy gamers’ needs. It’s equipped with a high-end Adreno 418 GPU (graphics processing unit), which delivers console-quality graphics and realistic 3D scenes and effects. Also, combine that GPU with the G4’s crisp 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Display with Quad HD, and all your favorite game apps will virtually leap off the screen in an amazing detail. In addition, according to some benchmarks, LG G4 does well in 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited, almost equaling the graphics performance of the Galaxy S6. The G4’s Adreno 418 GPU gives it a 31% boost over the G3 too. In my opinion, LG G4 is the ideal device for high expectation and demanding users.
There’s a bunch of people out there that don’t prefer iPhones because of their lower amount of RAM(?). Well, it doesn’t matter. iOS has a different approach of memory usage handling than Android devices. That’s a fact. The system does not need more RAM, so 2GB of RAM are adequate for iPhone 6s. According to gaming specs now, iPhone 6s is equipped with the amazing PowerVR GT7600 (six-core graphics) GPU which handles high-intense games suprisingly good. Moreover, according to benchmarks that you can find online, 6s beats Samsung Galaxy S6, but benchmarks are just numbers, some people may find S6’s gaming experience much better.
