Gaming on the go

Mobile gaming has evolved way past the days of killing time with a few rounds of snake, and today’s smartphones have evolved right along with it.

These three smartphones are worth checking out if your inner gamer is itching to play:

Microsoft Lumia 735

Killer feature
For gamers, Microsoft’s latest smartphone is all about Windows® and Xbox®. With the SmartGlass app, which turns the Lumia 735 into a second screen, Xbox gamers can stay connected with all their friends and rivals, while also enjoying extended experiences with games like Dead Rising 3 and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.

Plus, with Windows 10, Xbox gamers can look forward to expanded features, including Game DVR and streaming controls right in the palm of your hand.

Best for
Xbox gamers looking to combine their Xbox, PC and smartphone into a complete, connected gaming experience.

LG G4™

Killer feature
The LG G4 has two major features to cater to gamers’ needs. It’s equipped with a high-end Adreno 418 GPU (graphics processing unit), which delivers console-quality graphics and realistic 3D scenes and effects. That makes battling a wave of enemies approaching from all directions an even more seamless experience.

Match that up with the G4’s crisp 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Display with Quad HD, and all your favorite game apps will virtually leap off the screen in bright, colorful, full HD detail.

Best for
Gamers who want to get up close and personal with their mobile gaming, seeing every detail down to the smallest pixel.

HTC One M9

Killer feature
Audio is a huge part of gaming—just as important as visuals. That’s why gamers will love the M9’s dual front-facing speakers with built-in amplifier and Dolby Audio surround sound. Combined with HTC BoomSound™, the HTC One M9 delivers crystal-clear 24-bit high-def audio, giving gamers full sound-immersion in their mobile gaming experience.

Best for
Those who enjoy hearing every shot and explosion with unsurpassed clarity.
