8 Smartphones with Best GPU

If you want to play games on your smartphone, then one of these 8 smartphones with best GPU is the answer. They will not only make your games run smoother, but everything else.

By its definition, GPU (graphics processing unit) is “a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display.” Ok, we know all this sounds too complicated. Basically, the GPU in your smartphone determines how fast and effectively will the smartphone produce the things that happen on your display. The GPU takes these operations from the CPU (central processing unit), not only to make mobile games look better, but also to increase the using fluency of the smartphone.

The GPUs in smartphones and the GPUs in computers are similar when it comes to their purpose, but there are few important differences. While the GPUs in computers are independent bodies, the GPUs in smartphones are integrated into advanced embedded chipsets that include one or more CPU cores. The GPU can be a standalone chip, but that isn’t a standard. Because of this fact, the GPUs in smartphones are limited in their power. They have to be programmed to be efficient, but at the same time not to drain too much battery and overheat. If you want a better gaming experience, you should look into these 8 smartphones with the best screen resolution.

To find out the smartphones with best GPU, we looked into AnTuTu’s report of Top 10 Performance Smartphone Chips. This report included both the overall performance of the smartphone chip, as well as GPU performance. Since the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (Adreno530) had the best score in GPU performance, we decided to track down the smartphones that have this chip and feature them on our list. We used the list from Gizmo Times and picked out the smartphones from different manufacturers.
