    Hearthstone Although it's really a PC game ported to mobile, it does work really well on mobiles and is imo the best out there. Perfectly fun free to play as well without any need to spend real money on it, although you are unlikely to get above rank 10 unless you have been playing for years as you will suffer from a lack of cards.

    PUBG (or if you really must, fortnite) mobile can also be fun, although plagued by people using mouse/keyboard over USB so less fun than it used to be.

    Most of the rest are setup to bleed you dry and frustrate you or just to waste time - I don't play games on my phone anymore aside from hearthstone (and even then I prefer to plan on my Surface)

    Not sure if this counts but honestly, the best use of smartphones for gaming has got to be emulators, works far better with a controller paired up too.

    forgot to add, all games have in-app payments, but with the exception of Freeblade, they are all completely playable with no money spent.

    TBH, whilst i've played some games (i think the last was fallout shelter) eventually i just stop playing.

    Haha, couldn't be less true for me. If i make/recieve more than 3 calls a month that is very unusual.

    Most of my phone usage is, in rough order:
    -ebook reader
    -webcomic reader
    -internet browser
    -sat nav
    -alarm clock

    If someone were to turn off the 'phone' part of my smartphone but left the data active, i honestly probably wouldn't even notice for a month or possibly several...

    These days its probably more correct to call the devices PDA's (Personal Digital Assistants) than phones.

    Re: QOTW: Which smartphone games are worth playing?

    Final fantasy via emulator (though it's probably better getting the android port). That was actually really fun and easy to play on the phone. I think RPGs translate quite well to mobile.

    I really wish faster than light had an android port.

    If only we had a decent signal..
    Definitely no good for online based games here. (And it's not like we are in the back and beyond)
    Only real and required use is game login authentication...

    I must agree though, I use a PC, suitably customised for gaming.

    I only ever play Solitaire on my phone so it has to be Solitaire for me.
