The top 3 android phones for on-the-go player

Ahh, mobile phones – the perfect companion for on-the-go players like us whose busy schedule work or travel schedule sadly doesn’t allow us to have quality time with our gaming rigs. Thanks to the mobile gaming revolution, we can now play games that won’t make us feel like we’re missing the fun of consoles and desktop PCs.

The play store is now brimming over with awesome games and applications, and with the industry pushing the boundaries of what a mobile game can be, we can only imagine the future of mobile gaming. Now then, are you looking for the perfect mobile gaming phone companion to bring with you? Here are three Android phones to consider:

LG G3. This generation of Android phones is surprisingly great, generally because most of these handsets have the same core components. This means that if a handset tries to do something different, everyone else notices (and follows). As such, LG G3 is one of the most future-proof phones around for money sentient gamers like myself.

LG G3 can play most games like a boss, though it can get a bit hot after hours of gaming. The visual? The G3 consistently scored around 10 frames per second lower in Epic Citadel, and this frame rate gap was apparent in visual-rich games like Asphalt 8.

If you want the latest, G4 is also out and when it comes to overall performance, the newer G4 takes the cake. Both devices are a delight to use, but overall, I prefer the significantly less clutter on the G4. Just be prepared to pay an itsy bit more.

Sony Experia Z3. If you have the money, then by all means buy something that’s worth your time. The Z3 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip, 2.3 to 2.5 GHz. The Z3 features a whopping 3GB of RAM as well as a 32GB of flash memory; it has a storage expansion up to 128 GB via the microSD slot, which most users prefer with their mobile devices.

This allows the Z3 stands side by side with other flagship devices, and has no issue running a wide variety of apps and power-hungry games. In testing its performance, I tried playing a graphics-heavy shooter N.O.V.A. 3 and have waited 17 seconds for it to load, an average score, but faster than S5’s load time of 19 seconds.

Samsung S6. S6 is arguably the best smartphone in the market today. Including a speedy octa-core processor, a brilliant 2560 x 1440 display and a 16MP camera with fantastic low-light performance.

The Galaxy S6 was quick enough to handle any games you throw at it with ease. Give it a go. It can triple roundhouse any task including heavy web surfing, extended video and film watching or our favorite, playing intensive games. You can get your own Samsung Galaxy S6 from iiNet through phone plan or even buy it outright. When I played the first-person shooter N.O.V.A. 3 with the S6, smoke rising from scorching towers moved smoothly and was almost photorealistic. You won’t believe your eyes. I kid you not.
