How to improve game graphics quality (or performance) on the LG G4


Despite its respectable, 3,000 mAh battery, the LG G4 offers middling battery life relative to the best in the flagship business, as we recently illustrated by pitting a number of them through several dedicated benchmarks. The G4 didn't perform poorly overall, and there definitely were devices that did worse, but battery life likely won't be on the list of reasons for potential buyers anyway.

This isn't for lack of trying on LG's part. The company insists that it carried out a number of optimizations, and indeed, two out of three of the aforementioned battery benchmarks noted a better score next to the G4's name when compared with the G3 (which fared as terribly as did the iPhone 6). One such optimization has to do with gaming — arguably the most straining activity you can go for in terms of battery efficiency. This is doubly true when talking top-of-crop games with mind-blowing graphics that require the GPU's all. In any case, an option that limits graphics quality in games is enabled on the G4 by default, so if you're looking to get the most of that sick title you just paid for, you may want to turn it off.

Here's how (super easy):
