Free Fire has 50 players on the island and follows the same theme of fighting and surviving till the end to win.

These two titles cover a single match at almost the same time. Most games last approximately 15-20 minutes.

Graphics Optimization


PUBG Mobile Lite has much more detail and a natural feel in its graphics as its original variant PUBG Mobile. There are excellent map descriptions and interface features that make the game engaging and exciting.

Free Fire is not natural in feel. It's more cartoonish and not as detailed as PUBG Mobile Lite. However, the game offers great vibrant color schemes that attract most of the players.

Both Free Fire and PUBG Mobile Lite can run seamlessly on low-end devices as they have a minimum requirement of 1 GB of RAM. However, players should not expect games to run at maximum potential.

That being said, Free Fire is a better choice than PUBG Mobile Lite because it is more simplified and will run much more effortlessly on lower-end devices. The game also offers multiple unique features and varied gameplay mechanics, adding to the player's immersive experience.
