PUBG Mobile Lite is more realistic, providing players with a more life-like environment. It has extensive map visuals as well as high contrast illustrations. The game also runs impeccably well on high-end devices at 60 FPS frame rates.


Free Fire stands out due to its graphic optimization. The game has more arcade-like visuals. However, it has much better color options and 60 FPS frame rates on high-end devices (4 GB RAM and above), which continue to appeal to the majority of gamers.

Verdict: Which is better?
