iPhone 5S Gaming Review

iPhone 5S impacted the smartphone world like an asteroid hitting the earth. Apple has been the masters of paraphrasing since long. The iPhone 5S swept everyone off their feet with incredible specs and a fancy personalized biometric scanner (yes! we are talking about the Touch ID). iPhone 5S has debuted with an 64 bit Architecture A7 dual core processor churning 1.3 GHz. iPhones have been loved and loathed by gamers for several specific and also sometimes personal reasons! Let’s put the iPhone 5S to a grueling test and see how it fares. Let’s get on with iPhone 5S Gaming Review:


iPhone 5S employs Power GX6430 GPU from the rogue series. The GPU has more graphic handling capacity then its rival Adreno 330 doing duty on Nexus 5 . M7 coprocessor is a smart silicon chip which senses the various movements occurring and detects whether the user is walking, travelling, jogging etc. M7 ensures that the game is optimized in real time with respect to motion of the user. This feature is very useful especially when games are being played using the gyroscope, compass and accelerometer sensors, the unwanted movements caused by the relative motion of the vehicle are cancelled.

iPhone 5S Gaming review

There are some famous titles like NOVA 3, Halo which sucks up the resources like a starved parasite! iPad 3 was under optimized for these graphic laden games so was the iPhone 4 which used to show frame drops during heavy game-play. iPhone 5 was somehow optimized to handle such games. iPhone 5S gaming experience has changed completely, flaunting a magnificent 60 fps experience.

If you love fast car and want to spend your time virtually maxing out the mean machines then you can enjoy Asphalt Airborne with high frame rates and extremely smooth game play on the iPhone 5S. The accelerometer seems to sense the motions better thanks to the M7 co-processor. Infinity Blade 3 runs without any lags and anti-aliasing runs perfectly fine. The shadow effects are pronounced and the field depth is also high as compared to the game play on iPhone 5.
