90 FPS PUBG Experience On OnePlus 8 Series [Gaming Review]

PUBG Mobile has started offering 90 fps (Frames Per Second) gaming exclusively for OnePlus smartphones. OnePlus has announced that PUBG Mobile can now be played in 90 fps on selected OnePlus devices. And with the 90 fps arrived, there are a lot of people asking what exactly is the difference with the 90 fps? Is it faster or better than the standard fps (typically 30 fps or 60 fps)? Does it support for smartphones other than OnePlus?


It’s 2020 and now there are a bunch of smartphones released with the new 90 Hz and 120 Hz display, we can see it on the OnePlus, Samsung, ASUS, realme and other smartphones. Usually, the higher refresh rate screens are seen on the flagship smartphones or the top-of-the-line smartphones with a flagship CPU.

Due to the upgrade in the display department, mobile games can now achieve as much as 90 fps in the graphics settings to offer better gaming performance. With the launch of the OnePlus 8 series, the popular game Fortnite started offering 90 fps exclusively on OnePlus 8 series smartphones i.e. OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. This month, PUBG Mobile too received the 90 fps feature exclusively for OnePlus smartphones for a month.

PUBG Mobile is now using the new 90 fps mode, but how exactly is the 90 fps different when it comes to the gameplay? We have played the PUBG Mobile on the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro in different graphics setting to compare the regular 30 fps, 60 fps, and the smooth 90 fps gameplay. We can say there’s a notable difference in the gameplay when you run it on the smooth 90 fps.

Speaking about the performance of the PUBG Mobile, the 90 fps is 50% smoother than the 60 fps which is the Extreme frame rate settings in PUBG and 100% smoother than the 30 fps which is the Ultra frame rate settings. So for those who want much smoother gameplay beyond the Extreme frame rate option, the 90 fps is ideal.

The refresh rate on a smartphone counts the number of times the display refreshes every second it is on. A 60 Hz display refreshes 60 times per second while a 90 Hz display refreshes 90 times per second. Choosing a 90 Hz display will benefit the user to play games at as much as 90 frames per second. If a 90 Hz display outputs a new frame every refresh, it’s smooth, it’s a 50% increase, after all.


OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro both come with a 90 Hz refresh rate, in fact, the last year’s OnePlus models, the OnePlus 7T Pro, OnePlus 7T, and the OnePlus 7 Pro too equip a 90 Hz AMOLED panel. This means that players with OnePlus phones having a 90 Hz screen have an edge over opponents using regular 60 Hz screen.

In our 90 fps gaming experience, the game was relatively smoother as compared to the 30 fps and 60 fps graphics settings i.e. Ultra and Extreme frame rate settings. The only downside of it is that you will end up running the game at the lowest graphics only, you won’t be able to play the game at maximum graphics (in this case its HDR) while keeping 90 frames per second mode.

So, at a cost of graphics quality, you will be able to run the game in 90 fps mode, this is useful if you are playing a ranked match. You might be able to kill the players before you take a hit with the 90 fps mode. A typical smartphone with 60 Hz with 30/60 fps has delayed player actions comparatively, the 90 Hz with 90 fps have an edge.

With the game running at 90 frames per second, it enhances the gameplay overall, whether you make actions like running, using scopes, aiming and firing, driving, or any fast motion actions, the result is relatively faster and smoother as opposed to the 30/60 fps mode.
