Here is a list of latest Android Gaming Smartphones with Quad/Octa-core processor, 1 or 2 GB RAM with different screen sizes priced below 10K in India. Gaming smartphones require two major hardware components a fast processor and a good GPU( Graphics Processing Unit).

With the current generation of Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm Snapdragon processors we have great mobility devices, which can offer excellent gaming experience.

Nvidia was one company which was capable of making even better graphics processor but has not been successful in mobiles. Only processors we saw were Tegra series, that too just in very few tabs/smartphones.

The two major issues which smartphone Users face while gaming are:

  • Heating
  • Faster Battery Drain

Both the issues mentioned above cannot be fully solved as the processor and GPU has to work very hard at high clock speeds to render graphics on screen. This leads to higher heat generation and more power consumption.

However, in good smartphones they are managed using efficient design, to dissipate heat and software optimizations to reduce the battery drain.

If while Gaming your smartphone is heating too much – You can lower the graphics settings to reduce the load on GPU and in turn reduce the heat produced. All smartphones heat during gaming even our Nexus 5 or Apple iPhone 5s warms up after playing Need for Speed MW for 30 minutes.

As long as it is just warming up, there is no issue (happens with all smartphones), but if it becomes uncomfortably hot, then the issue is there with that particular mobile or can be with the mobile series.

The heating of smartphone varies, the same model for some users may get very hot for other may not. Some smartphones are designed poorly and get hot while gaming. Let’s look at some graphics intensive Android Games which require good GPU.
