October 09, 2019

If you like to play games on the move, then you are going to want to have a mobile phone that supports gaming functions. Further, if you are spending the majority of your gaming time on your mobile, then you will want the best phone for gaming.

Mobile phones have become portable computers in the palm of your hand, and the mobile phone market is flooded with options for gamers. Here we break down our top 3 mobile phones for gaming, based on price, ease of use, and performance, including processor size and screen resolution, vital for gaming.

Apple XS iPhone Max

The Apple Max is the bigger version of the iPhone XS, with the large 6.5 inch, 2,688 x 1,242-pixel resolution screen making it the perfect gaming mobile. Apple products are easy to obtain, and the Apple iStore has some of the widest selection of gaming applications.

Available with a variety of storage options and 4 GBS of RAM, but the real bonus is the A12 bionic CPU processor, which is the most powerful processor in a smartphone. This technology does come at a price, however, as the Apple XS iPhone Max is one of the most expensive mobile phones on the market.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus

The rivalry between Samsung and Apple continues, and Samsung’s S10 Plus is a worthy contender to Apple. The screen is a mere 0.1 inches smaller than the Apple, but the battery is slightly bigger than the Apple. The S10 Plus has a 1440 x 3040 pixel Quad HD+ resolution and curved AMOLED display.

The Samsung is 33 grams lighter than the iPhone, despite the bigger RAM of 8GBS and storage of 128GB. In terms of pricing, the Galaxy S10 Plus price is on par with the iPhone, and accordingly, it is likely that brand personal preference will be the determining factor for most gamers.

Huawei P30 Pro

For those without an alliance to Apple or Samsung, the Huawei P30 Pro is an honourable mention. With a screen size of 6.47 inches, 8 GM RAM, a weight of 192 grams and a slightly bigger battery than both the Apple and Samsung, Huawei is a definite contender as a top gaming mobile phone.

The Huawei runs Android, so previous iPhone owners may be hesitant to give Huawei a try. The P30 Pro has a four-lens camera, which can be an added feature compared to the other options on this list. In terms of pricing, the P30 Pro is similar to Apple and Samsung, yet the resolution is not as powerful.
