Mobile gaming has become a mainstream source of gaming like PC and consoles in the last few years. Mobile operating systems like Android and iOS have improved drastically, and this has enabled larger, more detailed games to run on the go. With more details, the amount of processing required also increases, directly putting a load on the mobile’s GPU.
Brands have started creating special gaming phones with additional features like improved ventilation, liquid cooling, and better display with a higher refresh rate.
A very common practice now is to ship along with a software-based “Gaming Mode” that automatically enhances the performance of the phone. Even game developers have started collaborating with OEMs to enhance their games and offer better gameplay.
