Graphics and visualization are also crucial for a game, but, as previously mentioned, PUBG Mobile Lite is made for low-end devices. Hence, it is pretty clear that the game will have much lower graphic optimization.

COD Mobile needs at least 2 or 3 GB RAM devices to run properly, whereas PUBG Mobile Lite can run seamlessly on even 1 GB RAM devices.


#5 - Storage space

Both titles have different storage space requirements. COD Mobile's storage requirement is 2 GB, while that of PUBG Mobile Lite is 575 MB.

The size gap of almost 1.5 GB clearly depicts that COD Mobile is much heavier on the device and bulkier with its experiences.
