Smartphones have become portable gaming powerhouses with ever increasing graphics muscle. Every year, high-end smartphones are being launched by various companies with even better graphics playing capability than their predecessors. Also, the qualities of mobile games have been raised to match up the core hardware power. Here is a list of such powerful gaming smartphones worth possessing.
In last couple of months, two new devices - HTC One X and Sony Xperia S have been introduced in India. We would have included the Galaxy Nexus but unfortunately it still has not been launched in India.

The latest Apple iPhone 4S smartphone packs a new dual-core 1 GHz A5 mobile processor. Apart from that, its graphics chip - PowerVR SGX543MP2, which comes with two cores is considered as the best. This dual-core graphics chip offers seven times more performance than its predecessor chip while playing games and also loads apps faster, though the RAM configuration remains unchanged. The faster performance is further aided by the inclusion of the OpenGL ES 2.0 engine support in the iOS operating system.
In terms of basic hardware, the Apple iPhone 4S packs a great graphics muscle but the 3.7-inch Retina Display is simply great to enjoy high-quality 3D visuals. This display may look small when compared to the 4-inch or higher display of some Android OS based smartphones. Physically, the iPhone 4S may look similar to its predecessor but when it comes to quality of graphics and smoother game performance with games like Infinity Blade 2, the iPhone 4S simply takes away the cake.
Apple iPhone 4S is available in India at a price starting Rs 44, 500 for 16 GB model. You can find it for cheaper online or in gray market in India but do note that there won't be any warranty offered on that by Apple India
