You can also enable the usage of Vulkan graphics api with the gfx tool only if your device supports it. The latest models of mobile devices are more likely to support it and allow you a more significant experience of gaming. As for shadows, it is better to leave the setting as it is. You can turn on anti-aliasing to remove some irregularities in the textures of the game but this shall cost you to lose some FPS. Disabling Anti-aliasing will get you higher FPS.

Coming to FPS or frame per second, you can set it to the maximum amount you want. Just like resolutions, higher FPS provides smooth gameplay experience. However, a very high FPS will also consume more power and will also lead to thermal throttling. It is recommended to keep this at 60FPS to provide a balanced gaming experience.

3. Open PUBG and accept

After figuring out all the customization, you can simply open PUBG and click on the accept option that will pop up on your screen. Don’t worry; it is completely safe to click on the accept tab. Once you do that, you will notice the changes in terms of more smoothness and graphics.
