While both the games are very famous, Garena Free Fire has way more downloads (more than 500 million) on Google Play Store than PUBG Mobile Lite (more than 100 million). This is partially because of the existence of PUBG Mobile, as many players like to play the original Android version of PUBG, rather than its lite version.

4.   Number of players

The matches in both games are exciting for players and last about 15 minutes, depending on the survival time. However, PUBG Mobile Lite allows ten more gamers to be a part of a single match.

5.   Characters

On the other hand, PUBG Mobile Lite has no such characters. There are the standard characters whose appearance the players can customise as per their choice.
