Proof 4k gaming is a scam. Your eyes don't even have the capability to render images in quality. Your eyes focus, and that destroys all quality of the surrounding image, so much so that an IphoneX can look exactly the same as next gen. I'm afraid 90% of gaming community are sheep and don't have a clue about the reality of vision. BTW. Earth is flat. No ocean curves 8 inches per mile. No 4k gaming console looks different from regular next gen consoles in real time. Go ahead though, take screenshots and argue my point. Point is you are taking screenshots to pick out differences.

I've played PUBG mobile on my android phone for 6 hours straight and it has 10% of battery yet. 5000 mah helps

When you consider the price of the Iphone X, this is considerably less impressive.

Seeing that unreal tournament montage at the end just reminds me that Epic stopped working on UT4 for Fortnite, 🙁

Yooooo!!!!! DF is using the background music from the PC version of Unreal Tournament from '99!!!!

If I havent subscribed already, I would yet again, just from that music choice alone.

Bro,pubg PC graphics would kill my device, I am glad they didn't do any shit like this.

The iPhone X is a $1,000+ device.
The question is: Why SHOULDN'T it run as well as on an Xbox One? Lmao

I would definitely play this on my ipad if controller support is implemented… and if apple losses up a little their rules for mfi controllers

This game> anything> anything again> PUBG.

iPhone X looks better than the PS4 Pro version 🤣

Wish it was Xbox One X vs iPhone X vs Nvidia Shield Console/Switch (with the Tegra X1 chip.), it would have been XvXvX. XXX

Optimization!!!!! PUBG, take notice or sink, Fortnite will keep expanding and will take over.

"Still running on a thousand dollar phone…" The switch is the best option for mobile, imho. I'm still impress that they are getting these on phones.

Reply

I wish they had added gyro-aim on the mobile device to free up some space on the screen. This would give enhanced aiming and finer controls to keep up with the twin-stick players but still not as good as a keyboard and mouse (if you need a example of Twin-Stick Vs Gyro Aim take a look at Splatoon)

I play on iPhone 6s… it sucks

Something I've noticed in the last 2 comparison videos. Screen wipes and flash effects between direct comparisons really impacts your visual memory and the ability to notice differences between the two clips. Instant transitions between direct comparisons would be much more helpful.

Reply

Hopefully they add motion aiming for the Switch version.

Reply

Players lose more on iPhone X because they can't see the players hiding behind the notch

Reply

Lol when iPhone fansheep come out of the wood and think they have a one X in their pocket 🤣, at least Android users understand the difference

Reply

Wait so…. this game is played by kids… on the way home on the bus…. with enough money so afford mobile data online gaming…

Reply

Do we think it will look better than iPhone X but worse than PS4/Xbox One (X)/PC when the game launches on the Switch?

Reply

My 10 y/o loves Fortnite, plays it on his ps4 and does really well coming in 1st and 2nd all the time. He wanted to play it on his phone but it’s just a 5s. I’ve tried playing with him on my ps4 pro but I hate the game. Nice to see it running well on iPhone X.

I just realized the next xbox might unironically be called the xbox y

Reply

Should've tested an ipad pro 9.7" as well.

And maybe an Android device, but unfortunately the highest end Android device does not reach the power of iPhoneX and iPadPro processors.

Reply

If it can run on a phone, it can run on a Switch. As a free 2 play game I’d take it as is with controller support at 900P docked/720P handheld @30FPS.

Do a comparison on 2017 iPad pro

Watched on my iPhone X

THE FULL FAT EXPERIENCE

Reply

The iPhone x is barely running at 720p!
So if it ran at 1080p your looking at 10 fps max!
so that's why the iPhone x can run this game.
Put the mobile game on large screen tv and it would look like shite.

The switch would piss all over the iPhone x not let alone the Xbox one x.

also comparing a £1000 iPhone x to an Xbox one x at £500 Is a no brainer! 90% of everyone wants the latest and greatest mobile, that's why the mobile prices are high, cause mugs buy them…

The Unreal Tournament Music <3

Suddenly the best looking mobile game is Fortnite. Goodbye Modern Combat😂

Reply

Holy shit! The first thing i'm hearing is MECHANISM EIGHT <3
Instantly knowing it was John behind the mic!

Reply

I'd argue that a mobile release was always planned but pushed forward due to BR's popularity. The entire interface in Fortnite is clearly geared towards mobile users (many menus support drag to scroll for example and menu items are large)

Reply

It's not quite the 'full experience' – there's 3 blades of grass missing in a field behind the barn house & the shadow inside of player 2's ass crack is missing thus tarnishing what could've potentially been a closer iteration of the source material 🤔

Reply

lol. Why is this even a comparison?

Reply

I guess no matter which version you get. X gon give it to ya.

Reply

Im in shock it looks that good on a phone jaw drops

Reply

It's a crap game to use to show off a console though.

Jesus Christ.
