Pocket Gamer isn't a tech site, as you've probably already noticed. Our business lies in playing and talking about portable games, not how many megaflops your flablet can finagle. 

In order to offer a complete overview of the world of smartphone gaming, however, we need to take a certain level of interest in the devices that make this wonderful past time possible.

When it comes to making smartphone recommendations, however, our advice is a little different to most other websites. We give a lot more weighting to games and how they play on a device than things like camera performance or software design.

Of course, hardly anyone splashes out the best part of £1,000 on a pocket computer purely to play games on the go. If that's all you want to do, you're probably better off buying a mid-range phone and a Nintendo Switch.

However, if you're looking to buy the absolute best smartphone on the market with gaming being a major factor, step right this way.
