Mobile Gaming in India

Ever since the arrival of smartphones, gaming apps have been available for the users to play. The ability to play fun engaging games on a device that you can easily carry in your pocket, was a great feature for the users. 

Some of the games like Angry Birds & Candy Crush captured the attention of the smartphone users in a big way and became huge hits.

Though these games were real fun and allowed even non-gamers to enjoy and have a good time, pro-gamers were still not convinced about the smartphones being a gaming device. They felt that smartphones were not powerful enough to run high end graphics intensive games.

However, with the ever increasing power of the mobile CPU's and GPU's, things have taken a huge turn. The smartphones now are able to run high end graphics intensive and complex games very fluidly. they have engaging details and game play, enough to catch the attention of even the most professional gamers.

There are so many great games, now available for smartphones, like PUBG, Fortnite and Call Of Duty.

These games, however, require high end CPU's and GPU's to run well which for a long time were only found in expensive flagship devices. But things have changed now. Even cheaper mid-range smartphones are now available with flagship chipsets to run these games amazingly well.

These 2 devices are available for around Rs 20,000/- in India and offer flagship chipsets. This allows to run the most demanding games with ease without costing as much as flagship devices. They have changed the way mobile gaming is viewed in India.

Before 2018, most people in India had to be content playing regular games on under powered devices. But now, they have the option to buy smartphones that don't cost much but still allow them to play high end games well.

Not just these devices, many devices costing under Rs 20,000 now run on chipsets like Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 670 which are extremely powerful when compared to they predecessors. They are more than capable to run all these heavy games with ease.
