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.
Huawei launched the Mate 20 X today with a simple marketing claim: this is a smartphone dedicated to the needs of gamers. But such claims need evidence and that's why Huawei (a GameBench client) sent a pre-release device over to our new testing department, GameBench Labs. We tested the phone's graphical performance across three popular and computationally demanding mobile titles that Huawei nominated: NBA 2K18 by 2K, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang by Moonton, and PUBG Mobile by Tencent Games. Read on to see how the Mate 20 X fared compared to the Apple iPhone Xs Max and Samsung Galaxy Note9.
