Top Android smartphones for gaming in 2016

No one can be without their mobile phone in 2016 and with the technology that fuels them advancing at an almost unimaginable pace, these devices are becoming more central to our lives every year. Nowadays a smartphone can be deployed for getting work done, watching videos or playing games – both simple ones like a roulette on mobile casinos in New Zealand and high grade graphics extravaganzas like Call of Duty. This piece will list the five best Android ones for gaming on.


  1. LG G5

LG has always sought to court gamers with its range of smartphones and they are continuing this with the G5 model. The processor, an Octa-Core 2.9 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon model will easily handle all types of games, while the 4100 mAh batter also provides more than enough life to last through epic role-playing games sessions. Another real plus point with this phone is the 5.6-inch screen that displays the graphics of things like Call of Duty to the best possible advantage.

  1. Samsung Galaxy S7

This smartphone offers you 4 GB RAM built-in, which will ensure that lagging does not occur when playing games with really sophisticated graphics, while the 5.5-inch 4 K screen means that all kinds of games look really good on it. This screen also boasts optimal colour disparity and sharp resolution levels, so it is one of the best gaming phones from the visual perspective. The 3.5 GHz Exynos processor is another argument in favour of this phone, as it has the power to ensure games load and play smoothly.

  1. HTC One M10

This is another really hot gaming smartphone, offering a super-powerful 3.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 812 processing chip, for smooth loading and playing of games, and RAM of 4 GB to ensure they play with no lagging problems. This makes it suitable both for something like blackjack or poker at an online casino, or a graphics rich game like Real Racing 3, while the 3400 mAh battery gives long-life and is wireless chargeable – great for gaming on the move.

  1. Google Nexus 6P

This phone also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor – in this case the 810 model that might not be quite as powerful as some of the others on this list but gets the job done. However it is backed up by an Adreno 430 graphics processor making it one of the best for handling the dense graphics of games like Call of Duty, while a stunning 5.7-inch AMOLED display ensures they look awesome on it. RAM of 3 GB is not bad either, making it a fine gaming choice.

  1. OnePlus X

This phone doesn’t quite match up with some of the Android big boys in terms of gaming specs, but it does deliver decent gaming performance at a low price. The screen is 5.1 inches which may disappoint some when it comes to the games with really detailed graphics, but it is perfectly fine for playing things like casino roulette. RAM of 3 GB is pretty decent too and will certainly ensure the vast majority of games play free from lagging, while the Adreno 330 processor is also up to most gaming demands.


Each of these five phones is well worth the investment for gamers, but if you want the whole package at an affordable price, the Nexus 6P delivers.
