How much time do you spend on mobile gaming each day?
Game on, PhoneArena users! As once the great poet said, united we stand, disconnected we fall! Whether you are a casual gamer, playing Angry Birds on your way to work, or you are slashing fruits while waiting in front of the dentist's office, wishing that it was the dentist on the board, we all immerse ourselves in the boundless world of mobile gaming. Yes, that includes the time you got those bloodshot eyes trying to improve your record running around lost temples. 

Look no further for Mario's princess, we're keeping her in the PhoneArena castle. The riddle here is how much time do you spend a day on your smartphone playing games?

How much time do you spend on mobile gaming each day?

I barely play on my mobile device...
Approximately 5 minutes a day.
Half an hour is good for me.
Nearly an hour a day.
Two hours is where I start!

Since getting a Nexus 10, i mainly use it for gaming (with a screen that good, would be a shame not to). I am completely addicted to 'SUPER Monsters Ate My Condo' and have been for months. I start with at least half hour of that usually followed by some Minecraft Pocket and occasionally some Worms Armageddon .

why would you play on something as bad as a tablet or phone. ps vita or 3ds if you absolutely have to do mobile gaming and if not then yea ill take my high end pc with a 27" screen anyday.

Wow. Dumb dumb dumb What you prefer doesn't mean it's what the rest of us prefer try lugging your high end PC in a bus, yes I have a high end gaming rig as well but my smartphone serves me well to kill time whilst on a waiting mode inside a metro station. Horses for coarses dude, your post is so far the most idiotic that I have come accross with.

While I agree, you need to let go of some of that anger, guy. You are by far the pissiest commenter on Phone Arena. It's not worth it. Just get over it.

what you also prefer doesn't mean it's what the rest of us prefer. I mean, seriously, kill time with what, Dead Trigger? Angry Birds? don't get me wrong, I mean, those games were great... THE PAST YEARS! And he was talking about PS Vita or 3DS, which I think can be brought inside the bus or wherever.

Gaming is probably what I do the least on my mobile. At least until I can get a good cheap peripheral. Can't stand touchscreen based gaming. I seem to have this problem seeing through my thick fingers. So... a peripheral is a must for me, but as I'd only be gaming to kill time I'm not going to spend much money on one either.

This. I would not mind playing more if all the games had support for a controller and we had more AAA support. Until then I won't game much on it as I absolutely hate touch screen controls for games not meant for them.

Beach Buggy Blitz and 8 Ball Pool are my most frequent games, about 5-10 minutes a day (sometimes I clock over an hour but its rare and not in the loo), I usually play when I'm in the toilet tho

During vaccation, 5 hours a day. When the semester is on, I do not game everyday and when I do, one hour is enough.

If the battery on my phone would last longer, I'd play more :P Whenever I play games, I limit myself so that the phone can last a day or more..
