The Top 8 Android Phones of 2013 | The Hardcore Gamer’s Guide to Android Phones

Even as the power of mobile devices is outpacing Moore’s Law, and graphics power seems to double every year, it’s a sad fact that phones simply aren’t marketed toward gamers. Walk into a phone store and ask a rep about a phone’s CPU. If you’re lucky, they might tell you how many cores it has, but getting a real idea about a phone’s performance is going to require some independent research. Even then, not everything is equal. Chips grouped under the same family are sometimes radically different on the inside, and even a savvy shopper might be surprised to find his phone comes up short. We’re here to cut through the nonsense and give you some straight talk about which phones are best when games matter most. (Android, google, LG, Mobile, motorola, Samsung Galaxy S4, Xperia Play)

For anyone using iOS, I suggest you try the stock android experience offered with the nexus 4. I used to prefer iOS but android has more customization and very recently competitive build quality.
