When it comes to mobile casino gaming, you want the very best experience. And that means having the very best phone designed for gaming – whether you’re having a spin on the roulette wheel, or crushing it at the blackjack table. You want the biggest display to fit your pocket, excellent battery life to keep playing on the go, and you want superb performance.
Here’s what we think are the three top smartphones for the best mobile gaming experience right now:
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
One of the most powerful smartphones on the market with the latest Snapdragon 820 processor, the Adreno 530 GPU and 4 GB of RAM, it will deal with anything online casinos can throw at it and smile. Yes, it’s expensive, but Samsung are guaranteeing 2-years of top level performance.
With a beautiful curved edge 5.5 inch screen, you’ll really get the best from every game and the 3,600 mAh battery should give you power to spare even after a long day winning. Add to this the Samsung-exclusive Game Launcher, designed to store and organize your gaming and the Vulkan API, which may well be the future of mobile gaming, and you can see why the S7 Edge is a winner.
You want performance on a budget? Take the Nexus 6P. At roughly 600 CAD it’s around 400 CAD less than the Samsung S7 or iPhone 7, which makes this a smartphone that genuinely competes.
Inside the Nexus 6P you get last year’s Snapdragon 810 processor and Adreno 430 GPU, which means the Nexus 6P sits just below the S7 on performance. The 3,450 battery might be just that little less powerful than the S7 but should still last a day. But throw in 3GB of RAM and a stunning 5.7-inch AMOLED screen for excellent color reproduction, and then look once more at the price and the Nexus 6P really stands out.
Apple iPhone 7 Plus
Seriously, you didn’t expect to see the iPhone on this list? The iPhone 7 Plus is absolutely the fastest smartphone on the market today, with Apple’s Metal APIs giving your gaming a pure, smooth play.
The 5.5 inch screen, the 3GB of RAM, the new generation Quad core A10 Fusion chipset (40x faster that the A9) and a battery that lasts 2 hours more than the iPhone 6, all of this adds up to a winning online casino experience.
So much choice on offer…
So that’s the best you can get right now. But what about the next generation smartphones to really push what online casino gaming can offer? Here’s a hint of what’s coming soon.
There’s the Apple iPhone 8, with its OLED edge-to-edge screen, rumoured wireless charging and the Apple A11 processor. Google release the Pixel 2, the first smartphone to run Android O. Samsung hits the market with the Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus with a staggering 5.8 inch or 6.2 inch screen and both knock it out of the park with a super high-res 2960×1440-pixel display. Oh, and if you’re after something just that little bit more futuristic, how about the rumoured Samsung Galaxy X, the first bendable phone with a dual-screen that folds out to make a 7 inch screen.
