    "I think that this would be a very good phone to play pokemon go on because of the impressive battery live alone. I also think the turbo power feature is great for if you wanted to spur of the moment play the game. Another positive observation has to do with the screen. If you'r'e playing games a lot you would want a good one. I would personally just have questions about how fast the phone could run in case it affected functionality of the game. "

    "I have had a few iPhones, but i think X is my favorite. The screen takes up the whole phone, it's gorgeous and bright. I love that I don't need to plug it in and that I can charge wirelessly. The camera is amazing, I can take real quality images with it. This is a perfect phone for me"

    "Pokemon Go looks great on my Galaxy S8! Never any lag, smooth crisp animation, and the gameplay is perfect! Gyms are a breeze, even the menus are blazing quick! The graphics really shine through, and the full HD really makes the game look amazing. The phone has as much RAM as my laptop, so again, speed is about as fast as you can get. Amazing phone, and the best experience I've ever had playing Pokemon Go!"

    ""Huawei Mate 10 Pro" is a beast of a smartphone. It is a flagship device with the amazing specifications. It rivals the other, more popular phones produced by the bigger manufacturers and it can be bought for less than those rivals. It is one of the most powerful, fast and effective Android smartphones money can buy right now so it is absolutely more than enough to play Pogemon Go on it. "

    "I didn't really like the stock user interface, but that's basically as far as my complaints go. This phone is a seriously beautiful AND powerful piece of hardware. It's also the first "budget" phone that's really been worth the money to me. To be honest, at only $200 bucks, it's quite a steal. It plays pokemon Go easily and without any issues at all."

    "This is definitely a solid phone for playing Pokemon Go. The processing power helps the game run smoothly and I've never had an issue with the touchscreen. The only drawback is that Pokemon Go draws on Internet power and GPS, and with the screen on at probably maximum brightness to see it in the sun, it sucks up a lot of juice. Just make sure to have an rechargeable battery pack with you if you plan to be out playing for a few hours."
