The iPhone 4 is the latest manifestation of Apple’s enticing mobile technology. For those who want to enjoy games while on the go, this phone is a great deal. In the name of gaming, the iPhone 4 has an almost-unlimited Apple store which has become a breeding ground for little developers with big ideas.

The iPhone 4 also comes with a responsive touch screen, a well-designed accelerometer, great graphics, and a processor that can run games in flawless manner.
Another key feature of the iPhone 4 is its Game Center, a social gaming platform running on iOS 4.1, which lets you play with practically anyone who is currently logged on.

No wonder iPhone 4 rocks much for gamers!
2. Samsung Google Nexus S
One of the latest Android smartphones flocking in the market today is the Samsung Google Nexus S. This phone comes with a 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen with an Oleophobic surface, along with a curved glass screen to improve viewing angles. This is the first to run an Android 2.3 platform, and its key features are terrific. It has a graphics processor that provides hassle-free gaming, and a 1GHz processor which comes with a cool three-axis gyroscope sensor for managing orientation.
Game-wise, Android is keeping up with the iPhone 4 although it is undeniably true that iPhone 4 has more games available. However, if you don’t really need more than enough, then Android-based smartphones will suit you well.
The only downside of the Google Nexus S is it lacks SD card support and HDMI output, with an average battery life. Other than that, this smartphone is definitely one of the best to serve your gaming needs!
3. LG Optimus 2X
The new LG Optimus 2X is the first dual-core smartphone ever made. Even netbooks do not come in dual-core! Performance-wise, you could expect great things when playing games with this Optimus 2X.
The phone features a 4-inch TFT capacitive touch screen and a gyro-sensor for glitch-free gaming. Initially, this phone runs with Android 2.2 but it can apparently be upgraded to the latest Gingerbread 2.3 very soon. One powerful feature of this phone is the HDMI output, which allows people to experience games on a large screen.
4. Samsung Galaxy S
The Samsung Galaxy S is a game-friendly smartphone, which sports a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and a powerful 1 GHz Hummingbird processor. If you are in the look-out for an Android smartphone and you want a mark in gaming, then this phone is one of the best there is.
This also packs a mighty PowerVR SGX 540 graphics processor which is the fastest graphics processing unit in Androids, handling complex 3D graphics with ease. The two processors combine to give three times more power than Nexus One’s Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. In terms of gaming power and fun, the Samsung Galaxy S is one of the few serious competitors to the Apple iPhone 4.
5. HTC HD 7
The HTC HD 7 is one of the best phones out in the market which runs Windows Phone 7, a new operating system described by Microsoft as a new and major games platform. The phone sports a 4.3 inch screen and although the screen is not OLED, the fact that the phone’s running on Windows Phone 7 makes it a winner. Its key features are the avatars, the friends’ lists and their achievements. Its games are bought through its AppStore equivalent, the Games Hub, which also allows game invites from other users.
This is quite new but a phone carrying Windows Phone 7 should be on the top list for gamers who love playing games in a nutshell.
