Historically, there has never been much competition when appraising the alternative gaming merits of the Android and Apple gaming platforms. From Apple Macs and Windows to iPhone and Samsung's, Android devices have always held a critical advantage and provide a more immersive gaming experience to users. The landscape has begun to evolve with the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, however, meaning that the battle between Apple and Android for gaming purposes is no longer so clear cut.

With this in mind, what are the key considerations when determining which mobile platform is better for gaming?

Graphics and Sound
Arguably the single most important aspects of the gaming experience, high quality audio and graphics can be crucial in the cultivation of immersive titles. This is true across all formats and game genres, whether you enjoy blockbusting action games or the type of virtual gambling experience available through the top, UK online casinos. In this respect, Apple have arguably stolen a march on Android with the launch of the iOS 8, which featured an improved graphics engine referred to simply as Metal.

Choice and Range of Title Available
The release of the Nvidia Shield Tablet has served as a huge boon for Android gaming, particularly in terms of the innovative technologies and virtual communities that underpin it. It is the first product of its type that has been designed specifically for gaming, which means that it offers excellent graphics and features across all genres. Most impressive, however, is the development of innovative services such as GameStream and GRID, which enable users to access a huge library of titles and share games in real time with their friends.

This makes it an even tie between Apple and Android, which shows just how far the former have come in creating an immersive gaming experience for its customers. Thanks to the development of the Nvidia Shield tablet and the sheer range of games available through Google Play, however, Android will retain a slight edge into 2015 and beyond.
