Hey! I'm a Nokia fan having grown up with the brand and was wondering if any of the new models are good for playing games on? Just things for my commute and such, my ipad is fun but has a more limited choice than an android device. Will I have to get the 8 to play things smoothly or will the other models run things fine? Thanks for any help you can provide!
What you need to look at is the GPU and CPU specs. Nokia 5 and 6 both come with Snapdragon 430 which is an octa-core processor.
However, it's been paired with Adreno 505 GPU, found on both Nokia 5 and 6, which is not suitable for newer 3D-intensive games.
Long story short: if you absolutely must pay 500€+ for smooth graphics on Clash of Clans, Nokia 8 is your phone.
