GAME ON

Men's Health (Singapore) - - TECH -

The new phones are also a lit­tle more game friendly, with a new in­ter­nal cool­ing sys­tem and the new Game Launcher fea­ture.

You can al­ter the game’s dis­play res­o­lu­tion and frame rate to save more bat­tery power – set­tings for these changes also de­pend on the game app in ques­tion. The Game Launcher also comes with Game Tools, which al­low the user to op­ti­mise his or her gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Sim­ply tap on the Game Tools bub­ble dur­ing a game and it will pull out a list of features you can run dur­ing a game it­self.

No alerts dur­ing a ses­sion, and lock­ing of Re­cent and Back touch keys to min­imise ac­ci­den­tal in­puts are self­ex­plana­tory, but Game Tools of­fer more than that.

There’s the abil­ity to “min­imise” your game app into a bub­ble while you take an ur­gent text mes­sage or e-mail, and you can pop back into the game by tap­ping on the game bub­ble that’s wait­ing for you in your tex­ting app.

The Record fea­ture lets you keep footages of your game progress, and an ad­di­tional first-per­son win­dow in the game to show the user solv­ing a stage or mak­ing in-game progress as the record­ing goes on.
