The Verdict

Even though each and every device mentioned above are perfect for high-end gaming, it is very difficult to choose one device from this list. But you can choose one according to the features that you like the most. Especially when looking for a smartphone with gaming capabilities, you must give importance to the hardware powered within the device. But as the hardware develops, the thirst for battery life also arises. So it is important to find a device that keeps the hardware configuration as well battery life in balance. With that being said, Xperia Z5 Premium delivers all the features that you are looking in a gaming smartphone. But the display being slightly less brighter and a GB less RAM compared to that of Galaxy Note 5, will have to be tolerated. On the other hand if you are really interested in buying Galaxy Note 5, then keep in mind that you will have to deal with slightly less battery capacity. Talking about OnePlus Two, it is not at all behind when delivering superb gaming experience, but since the device being manufactured by new brand, it is not so digestible by many users out there. LG G4 has many features that any gamer would wish for. With all the configurations being balanced in right way, G4 could also deliver you spectacular gaming experience on a smartphone. When coming to iPhone 6s Plus, it is not so recommended for those who are really into Android. Also there are not many high-end games available in Apple store when compared to that of Play Store. But if you are someone who are looking for a vast change from gaming experience on Android to that of iOS, then this could be the right device for swapping.
