Gaming phones have definitely become all the rage, to the point that manufacturers who in theory do not have these models inject some of their characteristics. The proof is in the constantly increasing screen refresh rate, or in the implementation of better and more advanced cooling systems.
So now that they’re closer than ever, you bought yourself one and you know what? It does the same as the rest, but with a caveat: your new “ gaming ” phone is better prepared than others to take on really heavy and demanding games. It’s time to try them out, if you think so, then let’s collect here the games that tighten the ankles the most to mobiles in which they are installed.
Asphalt 9: Legends
Asphalt may sound familiar to you since it is a fairly well-known title. Its best quality is that it mounts a graphics engine capable of absorbing whatever you put nearby, and it is that the required power of this game is such that it expands to cover your entire phone. Not in vain, it is one of the games we usually use here in Engadget to test fluency cell phones.
When it comes to the storage you need, Asphalt 9: Legends has no shortage either. The initial download is relatively small, but when we need the extra file things get tricky, increasing the set to (for now) around 1.8GB. It is being said at the moment why Asphalt 9: Legends grows a bit with each new update it receives. So, if you want to know what your gaming phone is capable of, this should be one of the first games to try.
Asphalt 9: Legends
Mortal Kombat Mobile
An old acquaintance with the world of video games, always bloodthirsty adult fighting game (+18), although at the moment of reality everyone is approaching to taste a little of the blood that has been spilled during their fights. The best thing about this version for mobile phones is that it is very similar to the one we like on consoles. The worst part is that we need a strong team to take full advantage of it.
Once again, we are faced with a title that will consume between 1.8 GB and 2 GB of internal space, even if its fluidity is remarkable if we have in our hands a powerful processor and sufficiently fast memories, two of the characteristics of “gaming” phones. As in the case of asphalt, Mortal Kombat is free although we have shopping inside, but we can safely approach it to test our cellphone.
On mobile phones, PUBG has gone a little more unnoticed due to the rampant Fortnite fever erupting, but that hasn’t stopped the game from continuing to draw fans across the globe. And one of its pros (and cons) is its graphics section: the PUBG experience on mobile phones is very close to what one has on a PC or console, and who needs a good material behind for get the most out of your graphics engine.
We’re talking about a little more internal space requirements, since PUBG on mobile it is already moving almost 2.5 GB. And if we’re going to face it, let’s not part with the charger or plug too much because PUBG Mobile is really picky about it. If your mobile falls into the category of “games”, increase the graphics to the maximum and enjoy.
There’s no doubt that Fortnite isn’t the one that kicked off the ‘Battle Royale’ formula in action shooters, shooters of a lifetime, but Yes, it contributed, and in what way, to the explosion of his fever. Epic’s title has spent a lot of time at the top of the list of highest-grossing titles, and surely also of the list of the most active gamers soaring on a shrinking island.
In one of its updates, it also incorporated control with Bluetooth commands, so the experience was much closer to that of PCs and consoles. Without a doubt, one of those recommended in this list of titles to squeeze your phone’s graphics. Download it, parachute and survive as long as you can. Of course, you’ll have to go to the Epic store since it’s not on Google Play. You fight for the pasta.
Fortnite for Android
Call of Duty: Mobile
One of the last to arrive, despite being with us for a few months, was Call of Duty: Mobile. One of the best-known shooter sagas in the PC universe and traditional game consoles, and now in the mobile world including Battle Royale mode this already seems essential in any game of this style worthy of the name.
Like in others on the list, in Call of Duty: Mobile we can choose to increase the graphics section, and if our mobile is ready for it, we can increase it to the maximum. Try it even if you don’t like this kind of game, if only to see what the mobile phone is capable of that you have in your hands. Without a doubt, a graphic and demanding marvel.
Call of Duty: Mobile
We started with Asphalt and it wasn’t fair that GRID Autosport, one of the last games to be giveaway for Stadia Pro users, wasn’t on this list. Yes, GRID is on Android and although its price is 10.99 dollars
We haven’t commented on it before in other titles but the usual thing for these games is that it can be connect a physical controller so you don’t have to mess with the touch controls. At GRID, we have this possibility and you just need to pair our Bluetooth remote control with the phone to be able to enjoy a graphical experience close to that of traditional consoles.
Honkai Impact 3rd
We’re going to close this list with the most graphically demanding games on Android with one that (we think) is one of the big unknowns. Honkai Impact 3rd is everything a beat ’em up in the purest Japanese style. The graphics section is fascinating as is the level of demand which requires execution with high resolution graphics. And yes, we have them available inside.
With this Honkai Impact we not only have a very entertaining and visually fascinating game, but we are also facing the most space-demanding on the list. Between the game itself and the additional files, Honkai Impact 3rd easily exceed 4 GB of space on our phone. A gem to discover and which will surely make our new “gaming” phone very hot.
Honkai Impact 3rd
From the same creators of Honkai Impact 3rd, Genshin Impact was born, a title that quickly climbed positions and became the “ benchmark ” of the manufacturers themselves, as is frequently reflected in product presentations. An RPG title for mobile able to extract every gram of energy from a smartphone, despite adapting to the advantages of each particular mobile.
Raising the graphics level to the maximum, with Genshin Impact we get a gaming experience so similar to a traditional console that seems to be born for the niche of the “ game ”, and we recommend it as one of the most demanding (and also the best) games that can be found on mobile right now.
And apart from all that, can you think of any other that should be on this list? There you have the comments, share the most demanding titles you’ve ever encountered and we will test them.
