In BGMI, players can experience up to 45-50 FPS frame rates on mid-range devices, while PUBG Mobile Lite can flawlessly render 60 FPS frame rates with HD graphics on the same.

Verdict: Which is better?

Regarding better gameplay experience and graphics quality on 4 GB RAM devices, Battlegrounds Mobile India is better than PUBG Mobile Lite.

However, after 30 or 40 minutes of continuous grinding, players can face lag and stutter issues in BGMI. As the device heats up, the processing power slows down, and the game's performance drops significantly.

PUBG Mobile Lite may not provide top-notch graphic textures but will run flawlessly on mid-range devices offering smooth 60 FPS frame rates throughout the gameplay.
