Acer Predator 6

Whilst most smartphones are built to handle mobile gaming, few are created specifically for gamers. This is where the Acer Predator 6 steps in. Announced at IFA 2015 in Berlin, the Acer Predator 6 has a Helio X20 MediaTek chipset and holds ten CPU cores. There are two sets of four Cortex A53 cores as well as two A72 cores, both of which run at 2.5GHz. So what does all that mena? These elemets enable the smartphone to handle massive amounts of data, which means you can play pretty much anything from Play store or you can visit games and casinos through the phone's browser without a single problem with graphics or speed. For instance, Premier Roulette is just one of six roulette games from 32Red available on their mobile site and it features colourful, high-definition 3D graphics. It also contains various, customised features, including six table designs, which less capable phones would not be able to handle. However, the Acer Predator 6 can. The same goes for Android games such as Epic Citadel and Real Racing 3 where graphics are a key feature. Speed and quality are without a doubt some of the Acer Predator 6 main priorities, making it the perfect phone for hardcore gamers of all kinds.

Samsung Galaxy S6

If you’re more interested in regular Android smartphones, few are more impressive than the Samsung Galaxy S6. With a 5.1 inch, 1440x2560 pixel super amoled display the Samsung Galaxy S6 had the sharpest screen in the industry until Sony’s Xperia Z5 Premium was revealed. This smartphone is also packed some of the most powerful internal hardware available on the smartphone market, with Exynos 7420 and 3GB combining to ensure the phone can handle even the most modern graphics in mobile gaming from Microgaming's The Dark Knight online slot to leading Android titles like The Walking Dead No Man's Land. After all, one of the best aspects of mobile games these days are the groundbreaking graphics.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+

Of course, we can’t discuss mobile gaming and the Samsung series without mentioning the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. This model has 5.7 inch samoled display with 1440x2560 pixels and a PPI of 518. The S6 edge+ is available with 4GB and a 3000mAh battery; perfect for those of you who enjoy playing long mobile games, partaking in mutliple sessions on 32Red's 3D Table Games mentioned earlier or at exclusively mobile casinos like minimobilecasino. Lastly, although you’d never be able to tell, the S6 edge+ isn’t quite as sharp as the S6 edge however it still provides users with a fantastic display.


This model may not be the fastest Android available, but the LG G4 is on par with the Samsung Galaxy S6 in most ways except the price tag. It has a 5.5 inch, 1440 x 2560 pixel display, plus the pixels are rendered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808. The best aspect for gamers is the fact the LG G4 comes with a removable battery, so if and when you do run out of battery whilst playing Play Store games, bingo or slots you can simply swap it for a new one. Plus, you'll never have to worry about running out of battery and being left stranded somewhere having spent all your battery life on games.

HTC One M6

If you believe that sound is just as important as visuals when it comes to mobile gaming, you definitely need to consider the HTC One M6. It has dual front-facing speakers, a built-in amplifier and Dolby Audio surround sound. In combination with HTC BoomSound, the M6 can achieve 24-bit high-defintion audio: fantastic for high-action Android games, movie-based slots like Terminator 2 or any slot on movieslots that often come with spectacular soundtracks. What's the point of playing a game with fantastic audio elements if you can't experience them fully, right? Finally, this model also has a 5 inch Super LCD3 Corning Gorilla Glass display with 1920 x 1080 display and a PPI of 440, as well as 32GB of storage.
