Most battlefield games such as PUBG are played online in real-time and need huge graphics requirements to run smoothly.

Game settings and graphics card capability determine the Frame Per Second (FPS). With a powerful video card, FPS will be high. Adjusting game settings can dramatically increase FPS in low-end devices. For laggy-free gameplay and more responsive controls, always aim for higher FPS.

In this post, I will show you how to turn on your FPS counter. Displaying this number will let you know when to reduce the quality of your game graphics for higher FPS. And the general rule is to aim for 60 FPS and nothing less than 30 FPS.

At times you may face network lags, but think that it’s game lag, knowing your FPS can also let you determine when to adjust your game graphic settings or troubleshoot your internet connection.

For PUBG Mobile players, follow the instructions below to turn on the FPS counter. But first, you need to download a performance monitoring tool called GameBench.


  1. Install GameBench on Android. You can download the app from the Playstore.
  2. Also, install the Gamebench desktop App on Windows or iOS.
  3. Create an account on GameBench.
  4. Using the same login details, sign in to GameBench on both the desktop and mobile apps.
  5. Prepare a compatible USB cable.

To sync and configure GameBench, follow the steps below.

  1. Enable USB debugging on your Android device.
  2. Connect your phone to PC with the USB cable.
  3. Press “OK” if you receive a popup asking you to allow “USB Debugging.”
  4. First, launch the GameBench desktop app.
  5. Next, log in to the Android App.
  6. On the GameBench setup screen, tap “Begin” and follow the remaining instructions to finish the setup. If done correctly, GameBench will detect your phone and unlock FPS reading.
  7. After completing the setup, the App will prompt you to remove the USB cable. Do not worry.GameBench will work fine from this point on without the USB cable.
  8. Now jump back to the GameBench Android App’s home screen.
  9. Hit the “+” icon in the bottom-left corner.
  10. Add PUBG Mobile from the list of your installed Apps.
  11. Tap the “play” icon to the right of “PUBG MOBILE” to launch the game.
  12. Let GameBench record a session for about 2-3 minutes.
  13. Tap “Stop” to end the session.

From now on, the FPS counter will always appear every time you play PUBG Mobile.

Note: The GameBench Android app requires two permissions: “Draw over other apps” and “Usage statistics.” At some point during the sync, the app will request you to enable those.

If either of the permission is missing, the app may freeze during setup. So make sure you do those and enable those.

Also, this setting works fine on stock Android without any special access, i.e., you don’t have to root your Android device.
