Epic Games has finally got Fortnite running at 60 frames per second (fps) on some high-spec Android phones, as well as on the latest iPhones. This is a major technical feat which brings mobile Fortnite much closer to the quality of the console version. However, high-fidelity gaming on passively-cooled smartphones often requires some compromise. In this article, we'll look at objective performance and image quality comparisons to help gamers figure out whether the 60fps mode is worth it.
Battle Royale games like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) rely on the principle that all players start on a broadly equal footing. So when a player is put at a disadvantage by their mobile device, for example through increased lag or other technical issues, then it's bound to hurt the game -- as many iPhone X owners are discovering to their cost.
