Dreams really do come through! These days, you can expect to play console worthy games on your smartphone whilst you enjoy all the stunning graphics and your phone stays lag free. How awesome is that? What is even more awesome is that almost all your favorite games like Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, FIFA and more are also now available for mobile gaming. There goes some productive man hours right?

So what mobile phones provide you with the ultimate gaming experience which would make you escape reality and jump in head first into the virtual world? Here are our top three:
