10 Best Smartphones for Mobile Gaming in 2020 

Mobile phones have become an unimaginable part of our lives. We use them for almost anything, from texting and talking to pass-time activities. These include browsing the internet, checking and sharing on social media and playing different games. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you have probably downloaded and played at least one game on your phone. Big manufacturers have started to produce phones that pack so much power that they are stronger than some cheap laptops.

With great power, comes great possibilities, and makers of video games started to target the smartphone market and make video games that are very sophisticated and require a certain amount of power of the device; graphics and gameplay have improved over the years and these games can now be compared to the games played on PC, PS4 and other platforms.

Here are some of the phones that are designed to support even the most demanding games out there.

This device is relatively young on the market, and as all apple products do, it packs some serious power under the lid. It has been shown that this device has a chipset labeled as the fastest on the market. With specific support that is provided with the app store, games are just one click away. With easy access and fast hardware, this device is a true gaming phone. Its other model, Pro Max, with bigger screen is an even better solution. The only negative side is that it comes with a price that is very high.

Pro version of any phone comes with the price; especially since this one comes with Snapdragon 855 chipset and display which is full HD. Unfortunately, it does not have a headphone jack, which is a big minus for this device. This android phone comes with the latest update of the operating system, and with a big screen and battery that lasts for a whole day, it is a good choice.

3. Galaxy S10

Samsungs Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus are perhaps one of the most popular phones. With a screen size of over 6 inches and a very good ration between the screen and the body of the phone, it provides a great experience in full-screen mode. It packs powerful chipset and good resolution. It does come on the pricier side and has a design that makes the phone very slippery, so try not to land it on your face.
