Mobile hardware has gotten way better

We all loved playing Snake on our old brick phones, but today’s devices can handle games far more complex than that. They’ve improved exponentially—some are even specifically designed with gamers in mind. When frame rate starts to suffer on a mobile device, for example, phones like the Note9 can read monitor heat and adjust the performance of the game, preventing lag and low FPS rates.

Mobile accessories are filling in the blanks

A lot of gamers are understandably resistant to mobile gaming due to tinny sound, clumsy UI and an overall lackluster experience. However, mobile phone accessories are closing that gap. Noise-cancelling mobile gaming headphones can bring immersive sound to your mobile gaming experience wherever you choose to play. And to compensate for competent UI being lost in the transition from PC game to Android, many game companies are creating mobile adapters to bring hands-on control to your phone.

Mobile can be great for grinding

Many AAA games, like Fortnite, are available on all platforms: PC, console and mobile. While the mobile gaming screen experience is bigger and better than ever, some players may prefer the larger screens home console experiences provide.

With that said, much of the grinding work that console games on Android require can be accomplished on mobile. For example, you might not be able to nail 360 noscopes on mobile like you can on PC, but you can adjust to mobile gaming by learning the right tricks.

Your phone can be your laboratory

Even the pros need to try new things to stay sharp. While you might not want to spend PC or console time experimenting, your train commute is a perfect chunk of time to explore new areas of a map with low stakes. Make a mental note of areas you want to investigate later when you’re back at your home base battlestation. Console gaming on Android is ideal for this kind of ad hoc experimentation.

More time to find new favorites

Have your buddies been telling you to try out a new game, but you just haven’t had time? Download it before your next doctor visit and check it out in the waiting room. What’s more, recommendation algorithms on apps like Samsung Game Launcher are getting better every day, suggesting games you might be interested in based on your gameplay history and personal preferences. Who knows? You might discover your next obsession in the waiting room.
