PUBG Mobile Lag: Yes it lags and its even more prominent on the Android devices as compared to the iOS version. I have downloaded and installed it on both my iPhone 7 Plus (running iOS 11.3 Beta) and on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (running Android 8.0 Stock). Now despite having the superior specs sheet on Note 8, the PUBG Mobile game lags too often with even overall poor quality of graphics. Playing it on iPhone makes me go for “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner“, because its easy to aim and get a stable shot on lag free iOS devices. While on Android devices it stuck most of the time when you are trying to avoid fire shots, or even trying to aim and shot the opponents. So here is the fix to kill this issue on Android devices
So how to get this fixed and get better gameplay. The first thing you have to make sure of is always check the game server health. This is how you do it. Followed by a detailed guide of adding a custom modified *.ini file inside the PUBG Mobile Data Folder. If you are an android user with a Mid-Range device like, Xiaomi phones, LG K sereies phones, Samsung J, A, Z series phones etc. You must add this file to your devices to get 10x faster Lag free PUBG Mobile game experience.
