Pick your gaming phone

When it comes to a top-performing gaming phone, speed is important but the display matters, too. As you’re picking the model that works best for you, compare battery life; the worst thing is to have your phone die in the middle of a game.

The OnePlus 8 5G UW is designed to handle fast-paced games: it includes the Snapdragon 865 processor and Ram Boost technology, so you won’t get stuck in load, download or install mode. Fortnite lovers, take note: the makers of this popular game teamed up to make the OnePlus the first smartphone to run Fortnite at 90 frames per second. It has an ultra-responsive Fluid Display with a 90 Hz refresh rate. It’s fast at charging, too. Warp Charge can boost your battery in minutes.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G allows you to game with less-zero lag; you’ll appreciate this feature even more with vivid graphics and scenes on the roomy, 6.7-inch screen.  Efficiency and speed come thanks to its Snapdragon 865 processor and 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, while the intelligent battery — it learns from your routine — and Super Fast Charging maximize game time, not charge time. It also offers the practical and efficient Wireless PowerShare, which means you can charge your gaming partner’s Galaxy phone by placing it on the back of yours. Bonus: the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network* supplies speeds and ultra-low latency, as well as quick downloads and streaming, even of HD content, with little to no buffering.

The Samsung Galaxy S10+ steps down in budget and just slightly in screen size — to 6.4 inches — from the Galaxy S20+ 5G but still supplies plenty of storage (up to 1 TB of internal memory) and speed with the fast Snapdragon 855 processor. Finally, as with many other gaming phones, it supplies a pro-worthy camera. It has the ability to adjust the view, improve the focus and automate advanced functions for incredible photos and an advanced portrait control camera for amazing selfies.

Gaming accessories: controllers, headphones and more

Of course, gamers don’t always play on their smartphones: a gaming controller offers wireless connection and ease of control, while a tablet gives a little bit of a size boost. Pair Apple products with the Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth, PlayStation DualShock 4 controller or MFi game controller for hands-on commands. To mute distractions while you’re gaming, turn to a pair of wireless earbuds such as the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds, which also operate with voice commands.

For Android users, game time gets an ergonomic boost with the Kishi Gaming Controller for Android. It supplies an array of face and bumper buttons, as well as a D-pad, to ensure comfort. Most Android smartphones can connect to the Kishi Gaming Controller through a USB-C connection. iPhone users can opt for wireless controls in the Razer Raiju Mobile Gaming Controller, which syncs with a phone and boasts nearly a full day of battery charge.

Finally, if you’re in the market for a tablet for gaming, check out the speed of the A10 Fusion Chip inside the  Apple iPad 10.2 for fast, fluid performance.

Games apps to try on a smartphone.

Finally, break up the dog days of summer (and beyond) with popular mobile games. A few to consider include:

  • Mario Kart Tour: Options abound for game play with friends and fans across the world — and in races around the globe, too — in both the Android and iPhone versions of this app.
  • Mini Metro: Game your own city — and see how you’d fare at city design — with the inventive design of Mini Metro for both iPhone and Android. It lets you build a better subway by capitalizing on strategy and planning skills.

Gaming your best on a smartphone.

Fast processing speeds, unmatched screen quality and lots of game options means that smartphones definitely occupy a space in the gaming mainstream. Get more from your time with favorite characters and games by choosing the best gaming phone and gaming accessories for your needs.
