Both PUBG Mobile Lite and Free Fire share the same core of battle royale and consist of 60 players for the former and 50 players for the latter, spawning on an island to battle it out.

The time consumption for each of the matches is almost the same for both these titles. The two offer intense games with a short duration. A single match would last a maximum of 20 minutes.

However, the game modes in Free Fire and the character choices are way more than PUBG Mobile Lite, and users can experience much more variety and versatility in the realm of Free Fire.

In terms of Graphical comparison, PUBG Mobile Lite is more realistic and is designed by Unreal Engine 4. The game has high contrast intricate details with vibrant map colors and complete detailing, just like PUBG Mobile. It also offers 60 FPS support on mid-range smartphones.

Free Fire, on the other hand, has a more cartoonish approach towards the graphic style. The maps are colorful but not as detailed as that of PUBG Mobile Lite. It also supports 60 FPS support on mid-range phones.

Conclusion: Which is better?

Both these titles are great choices for low-end devices as they take up less space and provide good quality gameplay. But, in terms of the user's experience and performance of a game, Free Fire will be a better choice over the latter.

Free Fire provides a wider choice of game modes, along with a versatile playing style with multiple characters. Also, the game can run quite smoothly on any low-end device without much lag.
