BGMI: how to fix frame drops

Charge your phone: According to the support website, the game tends to lose frame rates and face lags when the phone battery is low. Make sure you have enough charge on your smartphone and try again.

Check for overheating: Avoid playing the game when the phone is facing overheating. The temperature control feature of phones triggers when it encounters overheating, which will decrease the frame rate and cause graphics to lag. The developer also doesn’t recommend playing BGMI while charging your phone.

Check for background apps: The Q&A claims that running too many apps on the phone while playing the game also causes frame drops. If there are too many processes are running in the background, the graphics might start lagging. To fix this, close all the background apps and restart the phone.

Check graphics settings: Make sure you set your phone’s graphics setting to according to its hardware capability. If you set a high graphics setting when you have limited hardware, it can cause issues with frame rate.

Check the signal: If during a match or server selection, the signal on the bottom left is yellow or red, it means your ping is high. The developer recommends switching your connection to Wi-Fi or 4G or changing the graphics settings back to default.
