3 Tips for Finding A Mobile Phone That’s Great For Gaming

While most people want to use their mobile phone to make and receive calls and texts, the ubiquity of smartphones have increased the need for even more features on your phone. From social media and Internet access to staying connected with your business needs, people now need more output than ever from their phones. But for those who are looking to use their phones for gaming, you want to make sure that your phone is going to support whatever games you choose to download and play. So to help ensure that your device can keep up with you, here are three tips for finding a mobile phone that’s great for gaming.

Think About Hardware and Software Equally

The hardware and software of your phone are equally important when you’re looking for a device that’s going to be good for gaming. According to Mark Knapp, a contributor to TechRadar.com, you should consider things like chipsets, RAM, graphics chips and more when looking at what a smartphone has to offer you in your game play. Additionally, you should also look for a device that has your future use in mind, meaning that it will be able to last you more than just a few months of play before you need to replace or upgrade your device.

Consider How It Works With Apps

Different phones and operating systems are going to work differently with various apps. Depending on the apps that you’re wanting to download, you’ll likely want to choose a specific type of phone and operating system. To help you make this decision, Jake Peterson, a contributor to GadgetHacks.com, shares that not all phones and operating systems have a great reputation for getting the initial releases of certain apps. So if you’re wanting to get something at its release date, you’ll want to be sure you’re using a device that will be able to support that gaming app.

Prioritize Your User Experience

What it really comes down to is finding a phone that you love and can enjoy playing your favorite mobile games on. This means that you’re going to want to find a solution that allows you to have the best user experience. If having a good user experience means that you’re able to play the game on various devices, Dan Price, a contributor to MakeUseOf.com, recommends going with games for iOS. But if you don’t like using Apple devices, choose Android or another option that’s going to be more to your liking.

To help you find the right smartphone for your mobile game playing, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you make the best decision for your particular set of interests.

This article was originally published on ETFTrends.com.

Jim Cramer, founder of TheStreet and host of CNBC’s Mad Money used Restoration Hardware as the model for a recipe of higher stock prices.

Cramer told TheStreet that the key ingredients for a higher stock price include a robust consumer, a big short position in the stock and sharply better-than-expected earnings per share–all factors inherent in the Corte Madera, California-based home furnishing company.

In particular, Cramer was effusive in his praise for Restoration Hardware CEO Gary Friedman who took over the company in 2001 when it was on the verge of bankruptcy before helping to turn it into the powerhouse that it is today.

“Gary (Friedman) is a remarkable merchant,” Cramer told TheStreet. “His stores are not stores; they’re galleries and it’s exciting and we’ve used a lot of his stuff. Gary has got a vision and he’s got a way to run a company. Congratulations, Gary–you really did it. The stock’s not done going higher.”
