These Are the Best Smartphones for Gaming in 2017

Do you live to game? If so, you need an Android smartphone that can stand up to the heat of battle. These top picks won't wilt under pressure.

When mobile games are your thing, you need a smartphone that can handle it. A little game lag at the wrong time, a phone body that doesn’t quite fit, or a cell phone battery that dies too fast won’t help you get to the next level. No matter which Android smartphone you use, you can further maximize your gaming performance with Game Booster:

The new LG looks sleek and runs well, thanks to an extra-wide screen and a stunning 5.8-inch display. The slim design keeps it from feeling too bulky. Instead, it’s easy to handle and even water-resistant.  

Google Pixel XL

When you love games — like, really, really love games — you don’t want a screen so small you have to squint. Go big with the Google Pixel XL, a 5.5-inch screen that will take your gaming to the new heights. The longer battery life is a necessary and welcome bonus.

Google Pixel 2

While this smartphone won’t be released until the fall (Google hasn’t shared a date with everyone just yet), you can bet that it will improve upon the already great performance of the original Google Pixel. This time, it’s a safe bet that the new version will be waterproof.

Galaxy S7 Edge

For a big screen that packs a wallop, the Galaxy S7 Edge is a sight to behold. It is 5.5 inches with a 1440 x 2560 pixel display. The battery power is excellent, too — this phone can really hold a charge. A great frame rate makes it awesome for gaming, as it was intended.

OnePlus 3T

This is a gamer’s paradise at a bargain price. You don’t have to have a top of the line smartphone (with a price tag to match) to enjoy your mobile apps. This phone features 10.5 hours of battery life so your gaming doesn’t have to stop. The 5.5-inch AMOLED display looks great, too.

Moto Z Play

This phone has a great battery life. Expect to keep playing long after other phones have drained all their juice. Enhance your phone’s performance with extra gadgets, like the JBL speaker, to get even more out of it (when you aren’t taking on the latest bad guy, of course).
