Maybe if you have an iphone-support for gaming on android is shit with either being massively late (knights of the old republic) or just shoddy ports like need for speed no limits. Google needs to step up and help fix the situation otherwise what's the point in buying a powerful android phone when that power doesn't get used (for gaming) I have an s6 which could surely run better games than iPhone 6 but you don't see it.

Well you be happy to know that problem is getting fixed,Now that the default Graphics Api for Android Os is Now Vulcan!

OpenGL & OpenCE just was not as well designed to handle multiple compute threads as well as DirectX , but now with Vulkan being rewritten to do such, Mantle,DirectX12,vulkan & metal the APIs now have a much needed overhaul.

So soon the graphics Api inside Android will be better at taking advantage of the Soc GPU like a Adreno, or SGX etc.

I'm actually not up to scratch with new mobile phones, all i know is that i game on PC and do like spending out on high end hardware which is why i built an x99 rig in the summer with 16gb of ram.

But i see the price of some phones, it's ridiculous.. People think PC gaming is expensive but for the price of some phones you can literally build a capable mid-end gaming PC, like the phones that cost £600 or so.

Not really my thing. I would much rather spend that on upgrades or something for my computer, yeah yeah it's not very portable but i know for a fact it is a ton more powerful than a phone would be.

Nothing beats desktop gaming. Nothing. Even with old games like AC Unity in ultra @ 60 FPS that the console won't be able to match until five years from now and that's depressing.

specs won't matter if the OS isn't optimized for it.

And still all android phones have and still has lag when navigating, my brother gave me an iphone 5 as a gift and yes I hate the damn thing, updating is horrible, used space fills without doing anything, putting files or music is a pain in the ass, seriously in one point cause of that I wanted several times throw to the wall this damn Iphone, but in the end there is something I must say that it has good and very good and that is, lag is almost none existent here, response is fast and smooth also the camera is great too, <--Probably this is why lots people like it and I like it that too(hated too) cause of that but yes at the same time I miss the freedom of Android phones offers.
