The vast majority of online bingo players now access their games via their mobile devices. Unfortunately, not all mobile devices created equal.
While there is, as yet, no mobile device designed specifically with bingo in mind, there are plenty tailored to the needs of a broad range of mobile gamers. And what’s good for the all-round gamer is undoubtedly good for the bingo player. Here’s an overview of the latest devices that top our list at Giggle Bingo:
The Samsung Galaxy S8
This is the phone to choose if you really want the best overall gaming experience. Included in the pretty package of the Galaxy S8 is either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or a Samsung Exynos 8895 processor. This ensures that you don’t have any glitches in your bingo experience. The S8 also has another powerful secret weapon – the new Vulkan 3D graphics platform that takes visuals to the next level while actually reducing the strain on your CPU. This is particularly helpful to players who prefer to download their bingo games as apps instead of playing via mobi sites.
What’s more, thanks to a hefty 3 000 mAh battery, the Galaxy S8 allows you to keep on playing for much longer before you need to recharge.
Finally, the S8 boasts a crystal-clear AMOLED display with the capacity for 2960 x 1440 resolution – that’s very high and ensures that your bingo experience will be visually riveting. If your budget is a little bigger, you might opt for the S8+ to enjoy a slightly larger screen.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge
Before the Galaxy S8 came out a few months ago, the reigning champion of mobile gaming was its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. And it’s still a great choice, especially if you’re after value for money, since it’s a little cheaper than the S8.
The S7 has a roomy 5.1-inch AMOLED display with curved screen edges that make for a comfortable fit in the player’s hands. The display is powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4GB of RAM so it ensures seamless playability, even with games that are quite large. Moreover, the device features 64GB of built-n storage and a microSD slot, so you can download loads of bingo games. To make the whole bingo experience more fun, you can also turn on the device’s Game Launcher and Game Tools, which will optimise the phone’s gaming capabilities. You can even share games with others via live streaming.
The S7 also includes the Vulkan API, sweetening the deal just that much more.
The Moto Z Play
This new addition by Motorola is undeniably the best choice if battery life is your primary concern. It offers a staggering 3 520 mAh battery, even more than that of the S8. Of course, its long battery life is partially due to the fact that it has a lower resolution display, but its processor is more efficient and the viewing angles and colour calibration are still excellent.
The Google Pixel C Tablet
If you prefer to work with a larger screen, then tablets are a better bet for you. At the moment, one of the best tablets on the market for gaming is the Google Pixel C. It is also the fastest Android tablet out there and runs the latest version of Android. Its resolution is super sharp and the graphics are stunning. Meanwhile, the device’s long-life battery is an added bonus as is its slick design.
The Apple iPad Air 2 Tablet
Although the iPad Air 2 is not the latest Apple offering, it remains one of the fastest tablets around. It runs on iOS 9 and offers a clear display and engaging graphics capacity. It is also neatly straddles the line between being too small and weighing too much. The screen is generously sized but it remains fairly lightweight.
