No longer are mobile phones used for simply making calls or sending text messages to our friends, there are a wide range of other uses too. Mobile phones are being increasingly used for net surfing and web streaming. Gamers are using mobile phones in a big way. Android and iOS smartphones have definitely altered the way people look at the once so simple handset. It has revolutionised communications, internet access, productivity and entertainment. Everything has changed multi-fold and has become faster. Gaming is one such frontier that has been immensely affected by the smartphones of today.
Developers today are busy in creating high definition games for mobile phones which offer almost real almost life like experience in terms of visuals and sound effects. One of the major problems is that the Android Market is awfully limited when placed next to the Apple market. It is gaining ground slowly and people will find more and more coming to the stage in the near future.
Many device manufacturers are active in improving their devices on the gaming front.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Play & Sony Xperia Neo L
Sony is one such maker which has devoted special attention to mobile gaming and has gone ahead to create devices such as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and the recently launched Sony Xperia Neo L with designated Sony PlayStation store access and gaming capacity.
The Motorola Dext
Motorola Dext is proving to be a good option for gamers. The DEXT is not the best looking phone in the world. It does not pack much of a punch in terms of power. Those who are little uncertain when it comes to touching a screen will find the Motorola DEXT one of the best mobile phones out there as far as usage is concerned.
Google HTC Nexus One
The Google HTC Nexus One is also capturing people’s imagination in a big way. In terms of visual quality the Google Nexus One mobile phone manufactured by HTC was labelled as one of Android’s biggest challengers to the iPhone. Like Apple’s iPhone, it’s all about the screen on this beautiful mobile handset. The 1GHz processor channels its power to a responsive 3.7-inch AMOLED offering and has an amazing resolution of 480×800.
Samsung Galaxy S
Samsung Galaxy S is another good option available to gamers. It is another Android phone and has a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and is generally considered the best Android handset on the market at the moment. It also packs a pretty powerful PowerVR SGX 540 graphics processor for those 3D escapades. This phone has one of the fastest graphics processing units in an Android device and it handles complex 3D graphics with ease. The two processors are combined to give three times more power than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon used by the Google Nexus One.
HTC HD 7
Another good phone for gaming is HTC HD 7. It rocks a 4.3 inch screen with its own kickstand and it is clearly geared towards life as a multimedia machine. it does not have an OLED screen which implies that it struggles to even come close to the visual output of the Galaxy S’ Super AMOLED screen but still it is a very good gaming phone. It is one of best phones on the market which runs on Windows Phone 7.
