Games fans may benefit from mobile recycling
4 November 2010 — 3:59 PM
People who rate games as a priority when choosing a new phone may have plenty to gain by recycling their current phone and upgrading.
Luke Westaway, writing for CNET UK, has compiled a list of the top ten titles available to consumers, with many exclusive to the latest smartphones.
He begins by nominating Angry Birds, which became an "overnight success" after its launch almost a year ago.
Other popular apps include Cut the Rope, Bonsai Blast and Space Impact, all of which could be enjoyed via phones from the likes of Nokia, HTC and Apple.
Mr Westaway also recognises classic games such as Tetris and Snake that may be available even to those with older phones, although in these cases an upgrade can still be worthwhile as it means the features can be accessed with better graphics in higher definition.
Michael Sawh, writing for T3, recently explained Angry Birds had been made available to iPhone users for no cost for the first time.
Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "If you love gaming apps then you might want to consider upgrading to a phone with better technology. You could even make some extra cash by trading in your old handset."
