How to make PUBG Mobile run better
The first thing to do if your phone is struggling to run PUBG Mobile is restart your device. A simple reset will sort of clear your phone's plate, and when it restarts it will only have to worry about running PUBG Mobile.
Once your phone is up and running again, head into the PUBG Mobile app and find the settings menu in the top right corner of the screen. From that the menu, navigate to the graphics section. Lower the graphics option to smooth, turn off the style, and if your phone is really struggling, knock the frame rate down to low. Feel free to turn off the auto-adjustment setting as well.
If your device continues to lag, the most you can do is to make sure no other apps are open and ensure that your internet is as strong as possible.
