With games like Asphalt 8, Need for Speed and more hitting the Google Play Store, it is hard to stay away from them even when you are already having an Android smartphone. But, to be true not all the Android devices are capable of handling such heavy games. So, we will be taking this parameter into account to suggest you the best gaming smartphone available in the Indian Smartphone market.

We are considering only 2 Price slots, i.e. between Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 30,000 and Above Rs. 30,000. We will be suggesting you the smartphones on the basis of the combined performance of CPU, GPU and RAM memory because these are the only hardware features responsible for proving you with a great experience while playing heavy games on your device.

Price Range (Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 30,000)

Gionee Elife E7

The combo of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Quad Core Processor and Adreno 330 GPU will steal your heart away. Snapdragon 800 operating at 2.3 GHz is one of the most powerful processors available in the world and it will make sure that you will enjoy all heavy games at its best.

But still if you are not satisfied with this much power then let me tell you that this combo is also accompanied with 3GB of RAM something which is really rare this price range. The only drawback of this smartphone is its Android skin, which is Amigo. Hence, you may suspect very low degree of UI lag once in a while.

LG Nexus 5

This smartphone is in close competition with the previous phone mentioned above. Obviously the series named ‘Nexus’ carries trust of the customers and that is the reason customers are usually inclined toward this smartphone. This device is available with the same processor and GPU combo, i.e. Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 operating at 2.3 GHz and Adreno 330 as GPU.

But the memory allocated to RAM is less in this case (2 GB RAM), which is compensated by the fact that Nexus series use Stock Android and so UI lag on this device is already so low.

Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung Galaxy S4 was a big hit when it was launched and till now the sales figure of this device it pretty high. The combination of 2 Quad Core Processors with PowerVGR SGX is also really decent when it comes to gaming. It can easily handle all the heavy games available over Google Play Store as of now including Asphalt 8.
