There's nothing worse than your game timing out while you're pinning down by enemy fire, or losing connection mid-combo because your signal coverage just isn't that good. Well, as you're probably more than aware, humble 4G has been knocked off its pedestal as the strongest connection available for cellular devices, 5G is here, and it's the best way to ensure you've got a great connection when you're gaming online.
It's not just better coverage, of course, the download and upload speeds are better too. That said, there's certainly not a demand for a list of the biggest downloads, so here we are talking about the games that let you take full advantage of that great connection you've now got.
5G is fast and great for gaming, so if your phone is able to connect you to 5G, here are the best games that you should be playing with that connection!

PUBG, one of the largest battle royale-style games out there, has a lot of depth on mobile! With beautiful, realistic graphics, intense gameplay, moments of intensity and more, playing on a phone that always has a connection is really needed. PUBG puts you in an area against other real-life players, so you’ll need to be the best of them, picking them off one by one to win.
Whether you've played the PC/console version of Rocket League, you should definitely try the mobile version. Rocket League Sideswipe pits players against one another in a 2D with the simple aim of scoring as many goals as possible before the time runs out. The matches themselves are fast-paced and incredibly enjoyed. They only last 2 minutes, making them the perfect length for some vehicular football on the goal.
Garena’s Free Fire is a fast-paced survival shooter where you’ve got to try and survive against 49 other players, all on a medium-sized island. The matches are only 10 minutes long, giving you a quick boost of action and not demanding too much of your time. The world is more bright and colourful than in the previous two games, but the action, ability to ambush others and tension remains the same.
Black Desert is an MMO RPG where you can embark on quests through a world of fantasy. The world is expansive, the visuals are stunning, and it’s just one of the best MMOs on the market right now. The game is filled with epic quests, the ability to level up, bosses, a town to take care of, loads of different items and just so much to be discovered. It’s one of those games that can really suck you in for long amounts of time.
Butter Royal is a more kid-friendly version in the battle royale genre, where you can play as goofy characters full of vibrant colours, using ketchup guns and frying baguettes at each other. It’s like a giant food fight, on a small area of land that continues to get smaller, everyone grabbing weapon drops and hoping to stay alive. There is something just childlike and fun about this take on the genre.
