With mobile gaming becoming the next big thing in the industry(Google Stadia, Microsoft’s Project xCloud, Apple Arcade), the need for more elegant phones to withstand the demands of not only being a phone, but being a gaming device is ever more relevant.
Processing power, speed, refresh rate, memory, temperature control and screen size are all even more exacerbated as we look to find the best of the mobile gaming market. I am sure with this market growing from having only a handful of nice mobile games, to finding ways to fit full platform games into our pockets will help dictate the features that the next generation of mobile devices will require in order to compete.
I did some research on the mobile devices, best-suited to handle the demands of a power mobile gamer and here is what I came up with:
SPECIFICATIONS Dimensions: 158.5 x 79 x 8.5mm OS: Android 8.1 Screen size: 5.7 inches Resolution: 1440 x 2560 pixels CPU: Snapdragon 845 RAM: 8GB Storage: 64GB Battery: 4000mAh Rear camera: 12MP f/1.8 + 12MP f/2.6 Front camera: 8MP f/2.0
SPECIFICATIONS Weight: .44 lbs Dimensions: 158.5 x 76.2 x 8.6mm OS: Android 8.1 Screen size: 6.0 inches Resolution: 1080 x 2160 pixels CPU: Snapdragon 845 RAM: 8GB Storage: 128/512GB Battery: 4000mAh Rear camera: 12MP + 8MP Front camera: 8MP
The Samsung Galaxy will forever be held in great regard because they lead the industry with some of the highest quality displays. they have some awesome processing power to boot also. Check the specs below: SPECIFICATIONS Weight: .39 lbs Dimensions: 157.6 x 74.1 x 7.8mm OS: Android 9.0 Screen size: 6.4 inches Resolution: 1440 x 3040 pixels CPU: Exynos 9820/Snapdragon 855 RAM: 8/12GB Storage: 128/512GB/1TB Battery: 4100mAh Rear camera: 12MP f/1.5-2.4 + 12MP f/2.4 + 16MP f/2.2 Front camera: 10MP f/1.9 + 8MP f/2.2

SPECIFICATIONS Weight: 188 g (6.63 oz) Dimensions: 144 x 71.4 x 8.1 mm OS: iOS 13, upgradable to iOS 13.3 Screen size: 5.8 inches Resolution: 1125 x 2436 pixels CPU: Hexa-core (2x2.65 GHz Lightning + 4x1.8 GHz Thunder) RAM: 4GB Storage: 64GB, 256GB, 512GB Battery: 3046mAh Rear camera: Triple Camera: 12 MP, f/1.8, 26mm (wide), 1/2.55", 1.4µm, dual pixel PDAF, OIS 12 MP, f/2.0, 52mm (telephoto), 1/3.4", 1.0µm, PDAF, OIS, 2x optical zoom 12 MP, f/2.4, 13mm (ultrawide) Front camera: 12 MP, f/2.2, 23mm (wide)
All of these phones are amazing options, some more costlier than others. But the best part about the gaming industry moving to mobile gaming will be the advances in technology to compete with market share as this seems to be wide open for more of the smaller companies. So be on the lookout to find some really powerful mobile devices to come in the very near future to handle your most detail-oriented gaming needs!
