While you’re out shopping amid the holiday hustle and bustle, it’s good to know what the latest and greatest stuff is out there before making a purchase. If you’ve got a gamer on your hands, here is a line up of the best new mobile devices for gaming on the market.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Virtual gaming experience relies on the power of its processor. That’s why Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3, housing a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, is one of the best mobile devices for gaming. It outputs solid and consistent frame rates to meet the demands of complex game graphics and functions, and also produces crystal clear images on a large 5.7-inch AMOLED HD display screen, helping pull together an immersive game experience on the go.

HTC One M8

You can have the greatest graphics in the world, but a good game isn’t complete without superior sound in place. The HTC One M8 delivers ultimate sound quality for mobile game play through its built-in amplifiers and dual front-facing speakers that are powered by HTC BoomSound. Gamers who understand and value the importance of acoustics during play – this is the gadget to get.

Nvidia Shield

If you’re looking for a tablet built with a focus on gaming, look no further than the Nvidia Shield. The 8-inch tablet runs on a Tegra K1 processor that enables ultra smooth graphics and is capable of streaming PC games. Furthermore, the tablet’s add-on wireless game controller allows connected TV support so you can play a good old fashion couch to silver screen video game.


Winning, losing, challenges, competition, and power – all aspects found in games, all fairly addicting. A great Android device catered towards those who like to play games for hours on end is the ZTE ZMax. With a 3400mAh battery, the phone fuels nearly two days worth of use. Because the device is new to market, it is currently only available through T-Mobile. Luckily the service carrier offers a variety of free 4G LTE data plans so people can get their game on using the T-Mobile ZTE ZMax, wherever they are, for extended periods of time, as much as their competitive hearts desire.

Motorola Droid Maxx

With a 3500 mAh extended-life battery, the Motorola Droid Maxx is another fitting option for endurance gamers – a single charge can hold up to 48 hours of usage. Additionally, this phone boasts a tough build with DuPont KEVLAR fiber holding together a seamless design and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. If physical movement while playing mobile games helps you get in the zone, the Droid Maxx is ready to rough it with you in the action-packed virtual world of gaming.

When you’re done acquiring one of the top mobile gaming devices out there, why not make little Johnny’s wish list even more complete by pairing it with some fun Android games. For racing fans, Asphalt 8: Airborne is adrenaline filled and intense. Players get to race their chosen whips in a realistic setting thanks to the polished graphics and rumbling soundtrack included in the game. If a less extreme but still uber-fun game is preferred, try downloading Dots. Simply connect colored dots with others and once shapes are linked, they disappear and more dots fall in place. It may sound basic but it sure is addictive and a very appropriate game when you’re on the move with a mobile device. Gamers who grew up on old school gaming consoles will appreciate Modern Combat 5. It’s an adapted version of a classic war-like video game where players have the option of playing alone or multiplayer, shooting and firing their guns (on-screen) in 3D.

Gaming brings the gift of giving. This holiday around, make Santa proud by giving the top-performing mobile gaming devices as presents and witness games come to life in a truly captivating experience.
