Since my first Android phone, a Google Nexus One, I really can not live without Android anymore, well I don't want to. After using Android for a couple of weeks I found AndroidPIT as I was looking for answers and help with my new friend. Since then I have been around pretty much every single day and in the summer of 2011 I was lucky enough to start as a moderator and later as a Forum Admin. Since July 18th I work for AndroidPIT as a Community Manager for but I'm still also active on

    I play games quite a lot, but the problem is most games are really horrible and are just excuses to milk money via grossly expensive in app purchases. The new Harry Potter game is a perfect example, there basically is no game there, it is a visual novel with endless nagging for cash. I also loathe pvp as I have found it creates very toxic communities. Lately the games have also been so focused on graphics and ignoring fun. It may be a great time to look at games, but as someone who has been a gamer for decades, I feel this is one of the worst times to actually play them.

    There are some good games, but I usually get bored quite easily.

    I rarely play games on my mobile. I think I still want to save the most of my battery...

    I barely play on my phone. I probably spend only thirty minutes or less per week on any mobile game. I prefer playing on consoles because I like having physical buttons and controllers.

    The only game I have played on my phone was Pokemon go. And that was to find out what the hype was about and what my kids were into. It's been over a year since I last played and part of that is that I feel the screen on a smartphone is too small for the experience to be truly enjoyable. But that's just me, I see plenty of people completely immersed in playing games on their phones and they're usually of the younger generation.

    2 years ago at E3, it was a committment by game developers to see that console / PC games could continue on your smartphone, or tablet ... we're not quite there.

    Perhaps screen size has improved two things (phablet, tablet screens 6.0 and larger). Maybe the latest chipset / processor can handle the game graphics. There is still another 1-2 years to go and I believe 5G will change things.

    there should be one more choices in your survey. I would say I play games on my phone most days buy not everyday. I still stick to my gamming PC I built for serious gaming. Phones are good for killing time while waiting but not for serious gaming in my opinion. A 6 six inch screen can not compare with a large gamming monitor 2 or 3, I prefer 1 very large 33 or better driven by a pair of 1080Ti's.
