The Popular iPhone 4S Provides A Console Like Gaming Experience

The Apple iPhone 4S is an ideal smartphone for gaming. This is thanks to some very capable hardware in conjunction with games which can be downloaded from the AppStore.

The iPhone 4S features a number of hardware specifications which contribute to its capabilities as a gaming device. Among these is the screen. The 'retina' display on the handset is renowned for its display quality; in fact it gets its name due to the fact that the human eye cannot distinguish between the individual pixel s on the screen. The brightness and colour rendering of the 3.5 inch LED backlit IPS screen also contributes to ensuring that the graphics of the games are among the best of any smartphone, and is surprisingly similar to those of a game played on a console platform. The screen is also the means by which games are controlled. The responsiveness of the screen means that controls are intuitive and easy to use.

Another aspect of the hardware of the iPhone 4S that contributes to the gameplay experience is the processor. This is a feature which is often overlooked when people choose their next smartphone, but it is an important feature for many parts of the smartphone's performance. It provides all the computing power to run demanding apps, and ensure they run smoothly. In terms of gaming, this translates to graphics which flow smoothly, even when a lot of action is happening on the screen. At 1 GHz, the dual-core Apple A5 processor is among the best there is, and if the clock speed was lower, it may mean that the graphics are affected.

All of this hardware would be useless to mobile gaming if there were no game titles to enjoy. Thankfully, the games category of the AppStore has thousands of titles to choose from, within many genres. From classic arcade games to premium console titles, you are sure to find several games to suit your tastes. Popular titles include Angry Birds which is a simple strategy based game, to driving games like Needs For Speed, to first person shooters like Call Of Duty. There are many free games on the AppStore, although you may have to pay a small fee to download premium titles.

While most games are in single player format, you can actually play against other users in online mode. 'Battlefield: Bad Company' is a popular military based game on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which is well known for its online gameplay mode. This is carried over to the iPhone platform so you can play against friends who also have the game installed on their iPhone provided they have an internet connection. Some simple games like air hockey title 'Touch Hockey 2' can even be played with friends in the same vicinity over a Bluetooth connection and their movements will be mirrored on your screen in real time and vice versa.

If you take the time to look at the titles available, you will see how handsets like the iPhone 4S have brought mobile gaming up to date, and a far cry from the days where mobile gaming consisted of single player titles with simple graphics like 'Snake' on older Nokia handsets like the 5110.
