Best Android For Gaming?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Obviously this question seems like a no brainer, the Xperia Play. However I personally prefer a keyboard over controls (Which is why my current thought is the Xperia Mini Pro) I always have preferred a keyboard tbh it just feels better.

And plus I hate touchscreen controls, and my main game for Androids atm has to be Minecraft :3

Regardless, I've heard the Mini Pro keboard doesn't work with games at all, would be a metter of just flashing a rom and it'll fix it or would I require a diffrent smartphone? If so, any reccomendations?

If your in for a keyboard I just dont know.
For a touchscreen only you cant go wrong with the HTC Desire HD or one of thier newer models with the larger screen.
The Movement sensors are extremly acurate and the screen is huge so you have lots to play with.

I have been playing minecraft on my DesireHD and it works beautifuly, I cant fault it, but I love HTC smartphones and have owned 3 models from the Desire Range so im a little one sided.

Im still not overly keen on Androids with keyboards, I think its just the matter of getting used to the touch screen and movement controls.

Good luck finding your fit.

I was looking at a DHD because a friend said the HTC range of Androids are epic (Along with HTC Sense) it's just that it apparently has a terrible battery life and I want something that can atleast go a day without charge preferrably, I'll charge it at night obviously but something to last from 7 in the morning until like 11 at night would be perfect. Regardlless I've been told that there are places online selling an xperia play for £150 sooo I'll have to look, anyways thanks

If you don't mind a touchscreen phone, the Bionic is the way to go. it has a better battery life plus the dual core and extra ram doesnt hurt compared to the xperia play.
