Thought it was very impressive considering this is Switch in handheld mode and that the Galaxy S9 Plus is around almost $1000 with top of the line mobile specs. That's the power of a dedicated gaming handheld.

Switch in general is a perfect middle ground between mobile and console.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I hope this can finally put to death the saying that 'muh phone is more powerful than Switch'. Paper stats and real world performance are 2 completely different things. The Switch is really a little beast, Fortnite looks and runs great on it.

Unless you wanna see your phone explode, you best not put graphical prowness over everything else when it comes to mobile games.

Is it possible that Android Fortnite looks the same low quality on every phone to support the largest install base?

The phone is crippled by all the shitty phones.

But... my phone IS more powerful, just the other day I realised I had over a dozen apps all running at once ALL DAY, wondered why my battery was draining like fuck, but yeah, let's see the Switch run a dozen things at once. Check and mate my good sir! :P 



It looks like a game on Switch and like crap on the Phone, but the optimization on the last one must be truly awful.

You actually have three presets.
Low, Medium and High.
Low is 480P, Medium 540P and high is 720P. - Epic settings is actually not available yet (I think, haven't checked in a long time), but I would assume would boost it to 1080P?

In-docked the Switch will drop to 729P with a max of 900P... Undocked however the Switch can fall short of mobile with 720P being the max with drops to 360P. Yuck.

So to me it seems this video is a little disingenuous... The comparison seems extremely off.
Plus we still haven't seen the best from Android yet.

Except there are graphics settings low, medium, high, epic.

 

this is on epic. 

 

I guess PC Fornite looks low quality on every pc to support the lowest spec PCs possible for large installbase since not many people can have 1000$ graphic cards.
