First, that question is like "which computer is best for gaming" - which has no answer because each computer is different.
Second, even in your question you're mixing up things that have nothing to do with each other...

There are two operating systems for smartphones - iOS and Android.
iOS is used by Apple and iPhones, Android is used by everyone else (that is NOT limited to or associated withg Samsung).

And to give an answer - it depends on what you want to do with the device.
If you're interested in gaming and gaming only, the best device would be the one with the biggest display (10") - but those are almost unusable as smartphones even if they're fully functional smartphones, because they're too big to carry around in a pocket or regular bag.

If you're specifically interested in RPG-Maker gaming on mobile, especially your own games, then android is your only cheap option - because you'll need a Mac-Computer in addition to an iPhone to transfer your own games from MV to iOS. With android you can use a Windows computer for the same functions.

That... also depends on what kind of games you want to play. A simple idle clicker game doesn't matter whether if you use any kind of phone as long as it's not just too old.

But to give you an answer, one of the method to test mobile phone capability is to run rhythm games where you need to tap simultaneously on screen and the timing delay. I heard iOS often has better response on screen tap than most of android devices. Granted, I heard this around two years ago, things might get different today, but I don't know.

As Andar stated, you didn't give us much in the way of details so I'm going to make the assumption that you're looking for the best phone for mobile gaming without any specific needs in mind. At this time and date, I'd say that the Razer phone is your best bet. It's designed and marketed for this purpose. Has a great screen, specs and battery life.

Razer Phone - 120 Hz Ultra Motion Display - 64GB Memory - 8GB RAM - Dual Camera - Dual Front-Facing Speakers - Gaming Phone - Black

No idea about "the best", but I find lenovo quite good in relation to its price - meaning, for the same price you get much more than if you'd get a Samsung etc.

does that happen with every game and app or only with new ones?
if it happens with new apps that might be a case of too old technology, but most likely that simply means too many rresources are blocked.
are you always stopping your apps after playing them or are you switching them into the background? Because unless you fully stop them they still use up your phones resources. If you hit the button for switching apps and it lists more than one or two, you should cancel those others you don't use at the moment.

The Razer Phone or the Xiaomi Black Shark or the Asus ROG Phone, all 3 are excellent choices for mobile gaming and very powerful (they're literally gaming phones) but are you really sure you want to go towards this route?
Mobile games are mostly free-to-play crap with in-app purchases and the only few "good" pc or console ports are actually annoying to play on such a small screen with the touch and tap.

Samsung .it's not the most expensive phone or the cheapest phone ,If you want to use it as a game phone, I suggest you install a data manager --- which can manage Android data just like this one .

I prefer the iOS and use iphone 6s. I subscribed to Pond Mobile operator for unlimited international calling. It also provides unlimited Internet, so now I can play games online anywhere. Very convy.

Galaxy Notes are great for gaming on Android. I have a Note 8 and the performance to battery life ratio is quite good.

I've been using the Google Pixel 2 and it has yet to show any slowdown on any of the games I play (Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and Final Fantasy Record Keeper). I will say that it's almost too fast for the former, but that's due to the game's gimmicky move chaining system, where it's easier to get moves to fire off at the same frame if the hardware is slow.

I use Samsung Galaxy S9 for a few months and have no complaints at all. I like to play games on it and often call abroad ( I check the area code here and enter numbers manually ). This phone covers all my needs. Besides it's cheaper than iPhone.

Hi @Spence - welcome to the forums! Help with questions is always appreciated, but please do not "necro" threads that are months or years old (see Rule 4 here) as it tends to confuse people when bumped to the top of the board. (No worries, this is a very common mistake people make.)

As the original poster has not been around for over 2 years, I am closing this thread.
