Title says it all.
Thank you for feedback.
It depends on the apps and games. Not all android phones have the same android version and processors. But every android phone can run apps and games.
So like, HTC Wildfire can run sort of all games?
I'm not sure about the Wildfire but there are games and apps(especially games) that wont run on all phones. A lot of games coming out now only run on Tegra 2 devices. Typically if the game won't run on your phone, you won't be able to find it in the market(I think?).
I am going to buy HTC Wildfire. But can Wildfire run most of the games? Like Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Zombievillle etc.
I am pretty sure that the Wildfire won't run Minecraft Pocket Edition, right?
I'm not sure about the games mentioned, but we've had to explicitly flag Sentinel 3: Homeworld as incompatible with the HTC Wildfire as doesn't have a dedicated GPU and its OpenGL support isn't 100%.
So what about Desire Z?
How does the samsung galaxy s2 do in games area? It's fastest android but is it also the best gaming performance android dedvice?
If not what android device is best for gaming and at the same time fast for other stuff like web browsing.
You need to install chainfire on SGS2 to allow it to play Tegra 2 games and other games not compatible to the Mali-400 GPU.
Does the games run smoothly? Using chainfire?
As far as I see yes they run smooth enough.
The answer is no, not all Android phones can run all Android apps. Anyone who says that all Android phones can run all apps is misinformed. It is identical to the situation with Windows PCs. Some PCs are simply too old and not powerful enough to run the newest version of Windows or the most demanding software and games.
There are different phones with massively different hardware(processors ranging from sub 500Mhz single core to dual core 1.5Ghz, resolutions as low as 320x480 all the way up to 1280x720, under 256MB of RAM to 1GB, large differences in 3D processing power, and large differences in storage capacity) that also run different versions of Android.
Applications are developed with a certain bare minimum of hardware requirements and Android version requirements that are entirely up to the individual developer to choose. There is an option for the developer to make their application not appear in the market at all if your phone does not support it but not all of them do this.
Just check the game in the market... Most of the new higher end games will list the minimum specs similar to the back of a pc game box... Ie must run android 2.2+ and at least 1ghz processor...
