GBA emulator very smoothly 95% of the time (but it does lag for short bursts of time). I have not rooted my phone, Android version is 4.0.3, am using Nova Launcher and run all games in Boost Mode (Clean Master). Have plenty of free space on my 8GB SD card. Can anything be done? If not, can you recommend some good games that will not lag on my phone?
First of all, this is kind of in the wrong part of the forums, you'd be better of in the general Q&A section.
Secondly, the phone isn't really great, at all. It's a single core which runs at 600mhz, not that great, at all. You won't be playing a whole lot more than what you are able now.
You could always root your phone and overclock it a bit, but then it gets a lot hotter.
Conclusion: If you want to play games, buy a different phone.
