Good Android To Play CH on?

#1
Hey guys I'm currently a iOS player but I'm wanting to buy a android phone... I'm thinking of buying a Samsung Galaxy s5 Mini and was wondering if anyone else has tried CH on that phone and whether its good or not also if you have better suggestions on a android I should get, please feel free :)

If you want to run the game at max settings, you'll need a high end phone. The shield isn't a bad idea either, but it's pretty limited overall compared to a smartphone. I have an HTC One M8 and can run the game at max settings, but after about 30 minutes my phone gets pretty hot and the battery consumption means you'll need to charge your phone after a solid gaming session.

Playing it at low to medium settings makes it pretty playable on older devices. I have an HTC EVO 4G LTE that runs it great on medium or lower. Worst case scenario: you can download BlueStacks on your computer and play it using that. You will need a decent processor though, but it works alright as a "worst case scenario" option.

Anyways, it really depends on how much you want to spend on your phone, but anything with at least a dual-core processor and 1+ gig of RAM should be more than capable of running the game.

Aside from audio what does the m8 really have over the shield tab in terms of gaming? Nothing lol, gaming is all about the cpu/gpu, which the shield gets the +1, it doesn't have as much ram-- but you'll never use it all for anything out this year or the next :)

That phone should work fine on max settings.

I'm on the regular Samsung Galaxy 5 and I like it just fine. If you haven't already above my post here is a link to some of the pros/ cons, reviews to the mini.

Firstly, the M8's Snapdragon processor performs better on higher resolution games than the shield's Tegra 4. You can find benchmarks that support this. However, for gaming on Android (for the most part) the Tegra will have a slight advantage since most games aren't heavy or demanding. It's important to note that this is a very small gap in performance though and the average user wouldn't tell the difference. If you wanted to get REALLY technical, there are a couple more features the M8 has, but that's irrelevant.

In addition, any smartphone can do what a shield can't - be used as a phone. While there are apps that would allow texting and calling over WiFi, a phone is a phone. I believe the OP was looking to purchase a new phone, and right now the One M8 is pretty hard to beat as far as Android phones go.

Anyways, case in point I never said the M8 was a more viable option than the shield. I simply think that a smartphone is a better investment than a gaming tablet/controller.

Lastly, to answer OP's question, the Samsung S5 mini will be capable of running CH, but depending on what you're paying for it, there may be better alternatives.
