If you’re in the market for a new phone and you’re reading this, then there’s a good chance you’d quite like to play some games on it.
Not many websites place such an emphasis on gaming performance when making their smartphone recommendation, so we like to offer a unique gamer’s perspective on the matter.
While you no longer need to spend a fortune on a phone to get a good gaming experience, there’s an undoubted improvement when you shop at the top of the market.
With that in mind, here are our picks for the very best gaming smartphones as of early September 2017 – money no object.
iPhone 7 Plus
At the time of writing Apple is less than two weeks away from announcing a brand new iPhone – and likely less than a month away from actually releasing it.
So why on Earth would we make the outgoing model our top pick? Simple really – because the iPhone 7 Plus is still the best gaming smartphone on the market by some margin. As has been the case for years now, it will only lose its place when the next one arrives.
