Recommended Display (Graphics & Audio) Settings For Apex Legends Mobile

The display settings for the game will vary on your device's hardware configuration. Since we are testing the game on a flagship handset with a QHD+ display and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, we have kept the graphics & audio settings pretty high. You must set the frame rate to the highest for a smooth gameplay experience.

  • Graphics quality- Smooth or Normal for mid-range devices, Ultra HD or Extreme HD for premium handsets.
  • Frame rate is set to Normal or high for mid-range devices and very high for premium handsets. Ultra frame rates can lower FPS and increase power consumption.
  • Adaptive smoothening should be set to 'Off'. Enabling it can make FPS unstable.
  • We recommend the Graphic Style mode set to 'Vivid' for an immersive graphics experience.
  • Set the Dynamic shadows to 'On', Anti-aliasing 'Off', Refraction quality 'On', Bloom 'Off' and vegetation 'On'.
  • For audio and voice-over, enable the built-in mic and set the mic volume as per your convenience. The master volume, SFX, background music, etc. can be customized as per your gaming surroundings.
