Huge potential now

Video game publishers quickly understood the potential of this field. By reaching out to a wider range of players, including people who had never played video games in the past, they could take a new step and step forward in their development, experiencing a versatility unknown in the past.

In turn, the companies making mobile phones have taken this market even further than one might imagine by developing some phones in a way that makes them intuitive for video games..

The best on the market have become small computers in power and sometimes have nothing to envy the largest consoles on the market, especially because of the clever and intensive development on the part of the publishers.

Just look at recent versions of battle royale like Warzone or Fornite to understand how the work is pushed and unanimously praised by mobile gamers. Sports games are not immune to this frenzy either. Football with FIFA games has made the feverish sport well known on the fields, also popular behind the smaller gaming screens.

To play these last mentioned games and other blockbusters present on mobile and take advantage of all the visual and other characteristics gameplays, several technical data will need to be fitted to your phone.

Which ones?

A substantial battery

To be able to play without having to worry about too much energy, a good battery is obviously recommended. When making your choice on your future mobile phone suitable for gaming, this must be a factor to take into account between the pre-selected models. 

Check the battery power, but also the opinions of different users. Sometimes the theoretically advertised life and charge time is not at all the same during intensive use with applications as energy intensive as mobile games.


You will not have missed it, all or most modern phones come with touch screens. Interface at the origin of the interaction between the player and the game directly, the touch will have a preponderant part in the way of playing and in the sensations obtained.

Make sure you get a phone with the best possible touchscreens installed in it. Bad touch can quickly be hell to write a simple message, so imagine when you try to play on it ...

The processor

Among the characteristics to check, that of the processor will probably be the most important. Without a powerful, reliable and general quality processor, it will be impossible to enjoy the most demanding games and even less to have fun. Sometimes, it will simply be impossible to access applications in the normal way if the processor and GPU are not keeping up with the demands of the game.

Power is paramount

RAM or RAM is not only to be taken into account for multitasking taking place on your smartphone. According to principles similar to the processor, it will allow the player to enjoy a fluid universe and never altered by the other tasks incurred on your phone.

With insufficient RAM, the slightest download or the simple reception of a notification can jeopardize the good performance of a game, which must of course be avoided during a game on mobile.
