Which 2013 Smartphone is the Best for Gaming?


Just a little while ago the answer to that question would have been easier to answer than it is now. Before the latest iPhones were announced the best smartphone for gaming was the Samsung Galaxy 4S, and that included playing multiplayer console quality games, downloaded game apps. There was no comparison, that phone kicked the rest of them into touch, including the iPhone.

However the latest high performance iPhone, the iPhone 5S, could be a game changer. Let’s take a look. First the downside, if you want to buy a top spec iPhone 5S with 64 GB of memory without a contract it will cost you a massive £709. The price for a similarly specified off-contract Samsung Galaxy 4S will cost you around £200 less than that if you shop around.

Apart from the price the Galaxy 4S has other advantages, particularly in terms of its display. The Samsung has a 5 inch Super AMOLED display while the iPhone’s display is just 4 inches. It is also lower definition: 1080 by 1920 pixels compared to 640 x 1136 pixels. Processing power is also important for gaming. For games such as Angry Birds and its decedents raw processing power is unimportant. The same applies to online casino games at sites like http://www.onlinecasinoaustralia.com.au, they will run perfectly adequately on any reasonable smartphone, but large console quality games are a different matter. Without adequate computing power they tend to stutter. However this is where the jury is still out.

The Galaxy S4 has a 1.6 GHz quad core processer which provides excellent game play and graphics, it easily outsmarted the previous iPhone. Yet, the iPhone 5S has a new A7 processor which is said to be twice as fast as the A6 used in the previous iPhone, though Apple have refused to release the precise specifications.
