Graphics: Smooth
Frame Rate: 90 FPS

Anti-aliasing: Close

Colorblind: Normal
Brightness: 150%
Non-Standard Screens: 30
Anti-adjust: Disable

You want to maximize frames per second (FPS).
So reduce graphics (how pretty stuff looks) to increase FPS.
Shadows off will increase FPS and make it easier to see enemies.
Anti-aliasing off will increase FPS ... some lines in game will appear jagged instead of straight.
Charge your device while you are playing so that you have full battery charge while playing.
Close all other apps while playing.
Eliminate or reduce other devices that are using internet bandwidth on your internet network ... you can control this with a gaming router.

i started using finger sleeves on 2021-04-10 ... and i recommend them.  It feels like my thumbs glide across the screen without friction.  I don't play claw ... i use two thumbs ... once in while i use my pointer finger to bring the map up in game.  Also, when i touch the screen ... it feels way more responsive with little or zero input delay.  Use a microfiber cloth to keep the screen on your device clean.  

After being unsatisfied with the finger sleeves that were available … and extensive product testing, we decided to launch a new product under the Chaos For Lunch brand.

Wi-Fi Settings

2.4 GHz provides Wi-Fi to a large area but upload and download speeds are slower than 5 GHz.  2.4 GHz is good if the router is another room, or the Wi-Fi signal passes through walls.  5 GHz provides faster speeds to a smaller area ... so use 5 GHz and make sure you are close to the router

Do not use VPN ... I have heard (I do not know if it is true) that PUBG mobile has banned people that play while connected to VPN.

Make sure your device has plenty of storage space available.

Make sure your device has plenty of fast RAM (Ready Access Memory) and that you cache out Virtual RAM once in a while.

If your game is not running smooth repair game ... log out, touch Repair near top right of screen, make sure only Routine Repair is checked, touch Ok ... touch Ok ... restart game ... log in.

Display & Brightness settings on my iPad Pro.
Appearance: Dark
Automatic: Off
Brightness: 50%
True Tone: On
Night Shift: Off
Auto-Lock: Never

Primary and Secondary guns on the right middle side of the screen.

"Exit" vehicles button near top right of screen ... so I don't accidently jump out of a vehicle.  I moved the "Drive" and "Get in" buttons close to the "Exit" button.  

I moved the "Open" door button so that the bottom right screen area would be clear ... specifically so i wouldn't accidently touch the "Open" button when im next to a door.  I do have auto open doors on.

Button layout that will work best for you might be slightly different ... it depends on the device you play on and your hand size.

Once you have a good button layout ... it will take practice so that you don't have to think how much to move your thumb or look where a button is ... when you have movements committed to muscle memory, you will be a formable challenger in game.

I strafe in a non-predictable manner and hip fire a lot.  Most enemies need you to be standing still so they can shoot well ... oh and they need to be still and scoped in too.

I prefer to shoot with the UMP ... two of them.  I use Red Dot, Suppressor, Extended Quick Mag, and Half Grip.

I play using two thumbs and almost all settings are default.  I do use my right pointer finger once in a while to touch the map and to organize items in my backpack.

when i am playing smart and well ... I do not stay still unless i know or am pretty sure no enemy has an angle on me.  How do i know?  Based on in game situational awareness ... the easiest example is if only 2 guys are alive and it's me vs. enemy and i know where he is because i saw him across the map ... then yes i am ok with standing still behind a rock or house because he can not eliminate me unless he has a hack that bends his bullets in the air.  When more guys are alive in game, knowing is less likely, the situation is significantly more dynamic, and so your conclusions move from knowing to various degrees of probability. One scenario would be if you have ultimate high ground (no one is higher in elevation) than you ... then you could safely go prone and chill and not move ... no one can shoot you and you will hear anyone that comes near you ... if someone crouch walks with a pan in their hand ... you will see them coming they will be moving slowly ... you should easily be able to eliminated them.  

If a guy is willing to hold a position and not move ... it is hard to beat him 1v1 in a gun fight even if you are a good player.  So beware that there could always be one guy anywhere that is not moving ... the best way to beat him is by moving from hard object (e.g., rock, tree ... not a bush) to hard object in a non-predictable manner (he is most likely waiting for you to be still so he can shoot you) ... if he does shoot you while you are moving (that's great he just gave you two bits of information: his position and what gun he is using) quickly know which direction he is shooting from and get behind the hard object ... boost and / or heal ... maybe place smoke nades ... decide if it's a good fight to fight ... fight or disengage.

Deciding when to fight is extremely contextual ... the decision is based on your location and location of safe zone, loadout, health, gear, supplies, and the enemy's position and what you think his load out is.

The short version is that you always want to fight on your terms.  The best examples are: you third party when two enemies are fighting, you shoot a guy that is getting pressured or in the storm, you see i guy and you are pretty sure he did not see you.
