Iphone X & iPhone 8

This smartphone is one of the most powerful that has been ever created and is one of the best devices you can get to play games. Also that iOS is one of the best mobile OS that is on the market as it is extremely resource friendly. Apple smartphones always had much less RAM as their Android competitors but their smartphones ran smoother because of the better developed OS.

Android has the problem that it has to run and work an much more different smartphones than iOS does. Apple phones get specially built to only run on this single OS so the hardware interferes much better with the software. This causes much less lags and a better feeling while you play as you get more FPS.

The most important part of the new iPhone that is being released in near future is the powerful CPU, this part makes it faster than many Laptops or PC’s which is crazy as the device is so small and thin. Additionally to the new iPhones are getting released with new Super AMOLED displays, they have one of the most natural color schemes and work the best in the sunlight so it’s good if you tend to play outside sometimes.
