The gaming industry has been massively changed over the last few years. Not only has online gaming seen an increase during the pandemic, but the number of hours people streamed other gamers playing games increased by more than 47% in 2021. Multiple streaming platforms, from Twitch to Facebook, saw growth over the past year that dwarfs previous years.

Battle royale games like Fortnite and Apex Legends remain popular on mobile devices, but they aren’t the only ones that have seen a growing player-base over the past few years. First-person shooters like Call of Duty have made the jump to mobile devices. The growth of the live casino genre has also been heavily influenced by improvements in smartphone technology. This is demonstrated by the live casino games featured at Gala Casino, which include titles such as Elevation Roulette and Crazy Time. There are even plenty of MMOs to play on your phone, including the incredibly popular Genshin Impact. Whether you spin the casino wheel, stalk the maps of a war-torn metropolis, or the vast open spaces of an imagined fantasy world, you can do it on mobile just as well as a home computer.

No matter what kind of gaming you’re interested in, there is probably a mobile gaming option out there for it but you need to make sure you’ve got the hardware to support it. If you’re streaming your games onto your phone, there is even more to consider. Here are some of the top phones for gaming on the go.

Asus ROG Phone 5

More phones are being developed with gaming in mind, but they still make up a smaller proportion of the market. The ROG Phone 5 is one of the best on the market that is almost entirely focused on gaming features. It is larger than the other phones on this list and has a much shorter battery life, but that is because it is packing some serious hardware inside it. With 16GB of RAM, it can rival some PCs for speed and power. It is a pricy phone, however, and has a tendency to overheat at times, so it isn’t going to be for everyone. If gaming is your top priority, though, this is the best option on the market.

Red Magic 6S

While the ROG Phone 6 has it beat on raw processing power, there is no phone on the market that can touch the Red Magic 6S when it comes to display. With a 6.8-inch OLED screen, you’ll get near-perfect images and graphics every time. Again, this is a heavier phone than most people might be used to and some of the other features you’d expect to be better, like the camera, are sadly not as good as most phones on the market. The Magic 6S is focused heavily on providing the best possible display for a phone its size and it succeeds at it.

iPhone 13 Pro Max

If you’re a fan of Apple products, then the iPhone 13 Pro Max is by far the best iOS phone on the market for gaming. Unlike some of the other phones on this list, it has a great battery life, a solid 6.7-inch display, and the most powerful chipset that Apple offers in its phones. Of course, every iPhone comes with a big price tag and this one is no exception, but it also has an incredible 1TB of internal storage which is enough to store a whole library of games in the palm of your hand. If you simply must have a gaming iPhone, this is easily the best choice.
