For a smartphone to cater to the game enthusiast, the handset should feature sharp, bright display, in combination with powerful processor to handle 3D intensive games with no lags and stutters. To top it off, the battery unit has to be able to last for a longer time and in addition, it should be able to charge quicker. With all these prerequisites in mind, Phone Arena has collated a list of worthy smartphones for gaming.
Samsung Galaxy S6
Speaking of Android phones, the 2015 flagship apparently comes with the best display featuring a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display and 1,440 x 2,560 pixels QHD screen resolution. This display combination translates to an impressive pixel density of 577 ppi. The screen reportedly offers bright and accurate color reproduction. According to Phone Arena, the only device to beat the Galaxy S6 purely based on brightness of the display is the 4K resolution clad Sony Xperia Z5 Premium.
Apart from the brilliant display, the Galaxy S6 also comes with powerful hardware components on board. Spec-wise, Samsung’s own Exynos 7420 chipset is backed by 3 GB of RAM configuration. Plus, Mali-T760MP8 GPU helps the gamers feel at home with graphics-intensive games.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is the bigger sibling of the flagship Galaxy S6. However, the display configuration details differ in both the devices. The S6 Edge+ features a humongous 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display and QHD screen resolution. This boils down to a pixel density of 518 ppi.
Even though, the flagship handset beats the Edge+ with a slight margin in the display department, the bigger sibling comes backed by a killer 4 GB of RAM. However, under the hood, the S6 Edge+ shares the same processor unit as the S6. Phone Arena, on the other hand, said that the Galaxy S6 Edge+ might come with only a 3,000 mAh battery, however, this unit is capable of performing relentlessly with regards to endurance.
Apple iPhone 6s / iPhone 6s Plus
Other than the Android handsets, Apple’s iOS devices are also one of the best lineup of smartphones when it comes to gaming. Under the hood, Apple’s new A9 chipset and iOS 9 power the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. According to Tech Radar, the A9 processor has been designed to offer 70 percent faster CPU tasks and 90 percent faster graphics processing, when compared to the A8 processor seen in the predecessor iPhone 6.
In addition, the latest iPhone 6s models come backed by 2 GB of RAM, unlike the predecessors. To top it off, a good majority of mobile game developers reportedly launch the new gaming titles only on iOS with an iOS-first approach, Phone Arena reported.
