eFootball Mobile is a series of football video games that were developed for mobile by Konami. It began in 2022 as eFootball Mobile 2022 and has been replaced by a newer iteration every year. It replaced the old Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) Mobile series. In this article, we're going to be tackling the question, of how to buy a smartphone that plays eFootball mobile.

In the not-so-recent past, any phone could install and play eFootball. All it needed was to have at least 1GB of RAM which later because 2GB of RAM. This open-door policy gave all and sundry access to the game but it also caused a lot of anger and frustration. This is because many people who used low-end phones also wanted to play the game and they installed it only for their phones to glitch out or just handle it poorly.

As a result, for eFootball, a lot of changes were made. Konami failed to effectively communicate these changes to their user base and went on to post very wrong system requirements on their site. Thus the Internet has been full of people posting something along the lines of “My phone meets all the requirements but it won't play eFootball mobile, please help “. Many people have spent decent money on a phone just because of eFootball mobile only to find out that the said phone cannot play the game. You can imagine the pain and anger.

It is for this very reason that this author has taken it upon himself to save you from the pain of regret.

There are 3 key things you must know if you want to buy a phone that can play eFootball Mobile. These are:

  1. Operating System
  2. Processor
  3. RAM

Operating System

You must only buy a phone that runs on 64-bit Android.

If you're on Android, you must know that there are 2 variants or flavors. These are 32-bit Android or 64-bit Android. The 32-bit version of Android is the stripped-back version that does not support most modern apps and lacks a lot of functionality. eFootball Mobile is designed to run only on the 64-bit version of Android. If you buy or use a phone with 32-bit Android then you will be unable to play eFootball Mobile.

Processor (SoC)

You must only buy a phone that has an SoC with at least 2 Cortex A75 or 4 Cortex A73 CPU cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. It should also have a decent GPU as well.

eFootball Mobile is a rather heavy game that needs a processor with decent processing power. If you buy phones with low-end SoCs using Cortex A53 or A55 CPU cores, like the Helio G36, you'll be disappointed. You need something with at least Helio G85 or Snapdragon 460 to play eFootball smoothly at Mid to low settings.


You should buy something with a minimum of 4GB RAM.

eFootball Mobile easily occupies about 2.5GB of memory (RAM). If Android OS occupies 800MB to 1GB, this means that you'll need 3.5GB alone just to keep the phone running. As a result, the lowest you should be aiming at is 4GB of RAM. If you can get 6GB or 8GB of RAM, it'll be even better.


To avoid regret over wasted funds, make sure that any smartphone that you want to buy subscribes to the above requirements. Please keep in mind that these phones aren't cheap but I'm sure that you can find affordable options in the market. Cheers and have a good one.
