Games have been played by humans since the beginning of time. Human beings have been obsessed with all sorts of games from sports to board games to puzzles. So it is no surprise that, back in 1940, when Dr. Edward Uhler Condon revealed the first “game machine” at the New York World’s Fair we became enthralled. Dr. Condon’s machine was played more than 50,000 times in the six months that it was on display.
Over three quarters of a century later, we humans have figured out a way to carry our own personal “game machines” in our pockets. Today, nearly 60 percent of the U.S. population is playing mobile games, and the number is expected to increase in the future. Mobile gaming has become an essential part of our lives, and with that, we have developed some great “game machines,” or smartphones, to enhance the experience.
Here are the three best phones for mobile gaming addicts:
1. HTC One M8
The HTC One M8 is a great phone for gaming, because it provides fast processing and clear visibility that is necessary for a pleasant gaming experience. This device has a 5 inch screen with a beautiful 1080p Super LCD3 display that is perfect for solving intricate puzzles or keeping track of fast-paced game play. The M8 also has a BoomSound speaker system with an all new amp that provides immersive sound for a riveting gaming experience.
In addition, the HTC One M8 is perfect for on-the-go gaming due to its durable hardware and exterior. This smartphone features a screen protected by scratch resistant Gorilla Glass 3, a special coating to maintain the strength of the glass even when dropped, better than standard liquid protections and a solid aluminum case design. Not only will this smartphone give you a great gaming experience — it can handle your active lifestyle as well!
2. Samsung Galaxy S8
This phone is also great for gaming, because of its long battery life and fantastic display. The battery in the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a hefty 3,000 mAh battery in a thin, but certainly not dainty, frame. This device also has an AMOLED display that has a unique option to scale up the display to an impressive 2960 x1440. In other words, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is the phone for mobile gamers who value long battery life and a large LED display.
3. Nexus 6P
The Nexus 6P has a huge 5.7 inch AMOLED display. This means that is has the same clarity and detail as the Galaxy S8, but with a bit more screen. The Nexus is a great device for mobile gamers who play games that require quick decisions or extreme attention to detail. In addition, this device is rocking a Snapdragon 810 processor with download speeds of up to 450Mbps. This device can also stream 4K video to its large screen, which makes it perfect for watching gaming tutorials from your favorite YouTube star. The Nexus 6P is great for gamers who value a large screen and fast processing.
Avid mobile gamers know that games are pervasive in human culture. Mobile gaming is just one of the many reasons that smartphones have so successfully infiltrated our society. They provide an escape, stimulate our minds, and help us connect with each other. Although many people view mobile gaming as a frivolous and new phenomenon, it is really as natural as breathing.
