features such as advanced shadows and lighting. To date, this hasn't been possible - by a long shot - on mobile devices.

Do phones have DirectX installed on them?

All the choice of words. If it runs at 1 FPS, it's called "runs" on paper.

Windows Phone 8s has support for DX11.1 (D3D) HTC for eg

The power of mobile devices is such that they are getting so big they are nigh on a small tablet. Naturally they will play high end games in the future, but it's the battery that is the issue- as always.
My Asus Nvidia Tegra 3 isn't exactly a big tablet, but it displays quite incredible graphics and games obtained on the Nvidia Tegra store http://www.tegrazone.com/
Easily better than any handheld.

I'm not really impressed by games running on a tiny screen. It's great that you can do something even if pointless. Touch screens are very limited in the type of games they're good for anyways.

Depends how the game is configured? The 3ds xl has a thumb stick and a directional plus of course touchscreen. The Nintendo wii u has a 6.2" touchscreen and joysticks etc. some games work really well others don't. PC has had touchscreen gaming and most of it is just irksome...regardless of size of screen.

I've been impressed by gaming handhelds ever since they first came out (even the crappy tiger games back in the day). Phones I'll be impressed when they're comparable to a PC and can run games while docked. They aren't there yet but might get close. The phones already cost as much as a laptop so I expect them to meet that performance metric before they become worth the money.
