Although I am a huge fan of console games, even the best mobile games have had too many roadblocks for me, until now. Today I bought the OnePlus 10T, a OnePlus review unit, and got down to Call of Duty.
I’ve played tons of shooters and even though I’m not very good at online multiplayer I can always get a few kills. By comparison, I’ve never enjoyed gaming on a mobile device as much as this before today; it helped that it was just crushing him too.
I have three big issues with console-style FPS titles on a mobile device, and judging by my current competition, I think a lot of people have the same issues.
Games on phones have control issues
the first is to control The console’s controllers may be clunky, but they also manage to deftly place two dozen buttons at your fingertips so you can perform a host of actions without looking.
Mobile gaming is all about the screen, you know, where you have to look to see what’s going on in the game. Mobile games expect you to block your view of everything and perform tasks just like you would with a handheld controller. You have to move your fingers over virtual buttons, some light and some dark, as the game hurtles towards you, usually at 60fps (frames per second) or faster.
Despite being the accepted way to play FPS titles on mobile, it never sat well with me, so the first thing I did was pair my Xbox controller with my OnePlus 10T. Today, modern Android phones and iPhones can simply recognize an Xbox or PlayStation controller without issue, making playing with a gamepad on your phone much more accessible than it once was. Many games are also built with the correct button mapping preloaded.
The OnePlus 10T responded perfectly with Xbox sticks. I played for a couple of hours straight and never noticed a significant increase in heat. I also have the Glacier Mat case, which is supposed to dissipate heat very well, and I’ve never felt uncomfortably hot holding the OnePlus 10T after a long gaming session.
Call of Duty meets a great gaming phone
Me second The problem is with the graphic quality. Sure, console gaming doesn’t look as good as a PC game on high-end hardware, but I don’t own a huge PC, so console gaming has always been my cutting-edge platform of choice. Based on memory, the current generation of mobile games offer what seems like visual fidelity similar to that of a PlayStation 2 or Nintendo’s GameCube.
Thank the manufacturer for gaming phones (and check out our list of the best gaming phones you can buy). Now that gaming phones have gained a foothold in the market, developers have begun to include the same graphical adjustment options that we’ve long found in PC gaming. You can adjust the quality overall or adjust specific settings such as texture fidelity and draw distance to best suit your device’s capabilities.
With the OnePlus 10T, I throttled every setting to the max and ran the smoothest Call of Duty Mobile games I’ve ever played, without any hint of stuttering or stuttering. Graphics set to Very High; frame rate set to Max. All possible checkboxes checked.
This makes a huge difference when playing on mobile. I was able to land hits from much further away because I had a sharp, clear view of enemies in the distance. I was able to move quickly through buildings, checking corners and blind spots, thanks to my Xbox controller’s superior frame rate capabilities and dual-stick handling.
Playing with OnePlus 10T felt like a real game
In other words, I was able to play and enjoy the game as I would on a console. I didn’t feel like I was sacrificing my fast and intuitive controls, or my immersive graphics.
However, there was one final piece that really helped me win; between the latest-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, the 16GB of RAM, and the super-fast FiOS connection it was connected to via WiFi, I just couldn’t get the OnePlus 10T to stutter, and that was a real strength booster. confidence. in every match.
When you play Call of Duty Mobile, you can tell who is playing on a competent team and who is playing on an old broken LG phone. I would take on a small team of combatants and patiently take them out, aiming carefully to save ammo, while the avatars before me staggered and staggered. Regardless of what phones those people were using, they clearly couldn’t keep up, and I took advantage.
This happened over and over again. I not only won at Call of Duty, I destroyed the competition. I won the MVP title every time I played a close game. I scored 20 or more points more than any other player. My teams always won, and usually by a huge scoring margin.
The only times I’ve lost, my opponents were wearing custom gear that matched the color of their loadout. These were clearly experienced players, and OnePlus couldn’t give me enough of a technical edge to beat them without practice.
So the OnePlus 10T doesn’t work miracles. Despite all the advantages and differences that custom hardware and control setup offered, when I was instructed by a more experienced player on mobile, I felt the same as on console.
