More and more of us are increasingly making use of our mobile devices for gaming, and so if you’re about to purchase a new smartphone this is a factor you might want to take into account. It’s always interesting to note how different handsets compare in this regard, so today we have some Oppo R5 and Samsung Galaxy S5 reviews on gaming performance to share.

We’ll begin with the Oppo R5, which has the highest price tag of the two. Specs include a 1.5GHz Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor Adreno 405 graphics, and a 5.2-inch display with resolution of 1920 x 1080. It has 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage (non-expandable). Further specs are a 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capture, a 5-megapixel front-facing unit, and 2000 mAh battery, and it runs the Android 4.4.4 KitKat-based Color OS 2.0.

The first of the YouTube videos that we’ve embedded below this article is a gaming review of the Oppo R5 from Fone Arena. It features five different games and they are Asphalt 8, FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, Modern Combat 5, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, and Riptide GP2. You’ll see gameplay from each of them on the Oppo R5, and after each gaming clip a score is given for both performance and graphics. For example for Asphalt 8 the phone is given a score of 4/5 stars for each. At the conclusion of the review an overall score for gaming on the Oppo R5 is awarded but we won’t give that away here as you may enjoy finding out when you view the video.
