We're not primarily concerned with the latest smartphones here at Pocket Gamer. We're a portable gaming website, so our main concern is those little bundles of software that pop and ping.

But as long as your continued enjoyment of those games is tied to the biennial smartphone upgrade cycle, we'll keep on eye on the smartphone hardware world on your behalf.

We'll start our latest smartphone recommendation refresh at the top. If you demand the absolute best smartphone gaming experience, you'll probably be wanting to buy one of these handsets next.

If your budget is a little more modest, don't worry. We'll be rounding up the best smartphones under £400 and £200 shortly.
