Before tapping the ‘download’ button on the online game you’ve been eyeing, here are several tips you can use to determine if your smartphone can run it.
Check Your Storage Space
One thing you must know about mobile games is that they take up space on your smartphone. The most graphically-intensive titles will usually take anywhere between 500mb to 1GB, which is significant as a typical smartphone will have 32 or 64GB of internal memory.
The only exception are games that can run on a web browser, including online casino games. In GClub, you can play your favorite online casino games using Chrome or Safari and won’t have to worry about it taking up your phone’s precious storage.
How About Your RAM and Chip?
Most new and popular games should run fine if you have a phone that’s relatively new. If you bought it new in two or three years then you have a good chance of being able to play the online game smoothly.
Nowadays it won’t be enough to have 2GB of memory or RAM- you will need 4GB to run online games smoothly. To check this, you can head over to the Settings then ‘about phone’ to see the hardware specifications. You can also view other pertinent information, such as your processor chip and the operating system the mobile device is on.
Operating System Version
Last but not least, you will want to see if your phone’s operating system can run the game.
Again, most modern games and apps will have a relatively low OS requirement but if you have an older phone then you’ll want to check just to make sure. You’ll be able to see this in the Settings page- if you have met at least the minimum OS then you can go ahead and go back to Play Store or App Store and download it.
