Hi, i want to share some experiences
My phone is samsung galaxy A70
When i played games, especially HD game, in the beginning there is no problem, but when i have played a while (especially in game battle that involved many characters, motions, effects etc) my phone memory suddenly slowed down, the game is not running smoothly like in the beginning.
I will have like 0, second lag/freeze. And it really annoy my gaming experience

I can guarantee it is not the connection problem
(And it is not the game frame rate/graphic either, because they are not happening from the beginning, if it is frame rate/graphic problem of course the problem will occur from i started the game or everytime i played it)
Base from my experience, i think problem like this it must be something wrong with the RAM

My phone has 6 GB RAM, and my still new, only 2 weeks since i bought it
I have another phone with 4 GB RAM playing the same game and it is running perfectly smooth in the same connection, NO LAG, NO FREEZE in every moment of the game.

No resources-hungry apps running in the background
No live widget feeds
No background sync
Only standard push notifications

So i was thinking maybe it is the system or driver problem that make the RAM doesn't run well
What do you think? What should i do?

Any informations or advices would be helpful and thank you very much (for reading) ?

It's not a Ram problem. It's called throthling. Your phone reaches a certain temperature and the phone Throthless the speed of both GPU and CPU in order to protect it from overheating. Thats why this most of the time happens a bit later when playing.

Thanks for the informations mate
But how can i fix this problem?
Can do some setups in setting or something else?

But i doubt that is the reason
Because when i restart the game, it became normal again
If it is because of temperature, i guess it will remain the same although i restart the game

You can't fix this as it's not a problem. This is a normal reaction of most of the phones. Even computer GPUs work the same. When they reach a ceartain temperature "limit", they thortle down the speed in order to prevent the GPU from overheating.
Sure, it could be also the game, some bad optimization. RAM has nothing to do with it. 6GB ram is plenty and even much more RAM hungry games run good with so much RAM.
Of course, after restarting the gameor after closing the game, the phone cooles down, pretty fast, but in the same time it can heat up pretty fast, especially if you're using the phone or playing the games while charging the phone. The only solution would be to go for better phones, High End SOC's which can handle those game easily without any strugle.

If overheating is the problem, it should be immediately starts on first day i bought it, but this problem just came out after i used this A70 for 3 weeks, what do you think just happened here? :(

A70 gaming issues

I have same issue with A70, after 5min or 8min game play in pubg the device heats up lags freezes.
I talk to Samsung support centre they said with new update our device is ok,it may b from game.then I said to pubg developers and they said our game is fine it may be your device.
So in the end there is no specific solution
I done it in developer option, I use GPU for screen composite only,after this the game goes fine.

I'm not experiencing lag or freezes during gaming, instead my problem is that game tend to refresh while I'm multitasking, for a 6gb ram phone thats a bit disappointing, and its not even a high demanding game I think (epic seven), I don't know though could be the game's problem, but then google tend to refresh as well

I dont know why this thread was bumped but you guys could try this

Are you familiar with Powershell? Platform Tools? Follow this guide right here.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-a50/how-to/heavy-debloat-ui-lag-ota-t3929189

I disabled four packages

.\adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.samsung.android.game.gamehome
.\adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.samsung.android.game.gametools
.\adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.enhance.gameservice
.\adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.samsung.android.game.gos

Its up to you if youre gonna debloat more packages from your phone but this really helps.

Im still currently studying which apps is not useful and which do i disable as i like having most of the features to my phone.

Goodluck on your phone mate.

I have Samsung A70 since autumn of 2019. I tried to play games like: Asphalt 9 (highest settings), FIFA Mobile (highest settings), NBA2K20 (I don't remember all settings are highest or some of them, anyway settings is not low), Call of Duty Mobile (Highest settings), also Grand Theft Auto San Andreas (Highest setting) and some others popular HD games. All games working smoothly, without any freeze or lag. My recommendations is: to uninstalled apps which u don't using at all or to disabled it, also do battery mid optimization, to turn off background working of apps which u don't need to work and keep to work only apps like: weather, if u have some widget and others where to need to update all the time information. From 6 GB RAM free always is about 2 - 2.5GB included that working Facebook which eating RAM a lot, weather or banking, sports apps and notifications. Bluetooth, GPS and others features which eating yours memory. I don't remember about Pugb Mobile, I guest I tried it without any problems, ran smoothly, but fact that I don't like this game at all for strange (if i'm not wrong) blue zone, when u have some time to run somethere before this zone kills u. I always don't know where to run, coz always i'm on zone, also why this happening at all. For the same reason I don't play this mode on Call of Duty Mobile too. Anyway this phone is really good for gaming, if you have trouble of lag/freeze try to all the time to do optimization of yours phone it very easy just one click on widget ir several if you did not that long time, also try sometime reboot yours phone, it recommend by manufacturers. Also to disable or uninstall apps which u don't need at all. By the way it not maybe important, but Samsung A70 have game app in which u can do more things to do better game experience like to turn off notification while u playing, also others things like to control to save battery or to do better game performance. By the way was one game which lag in this phone that NBA 2K Mobile, very big lag, even if is highest settings, but as I saw and I know it lagging in Samsung S10 too, so probably it problems of game, not phone. As I know this phone at this moment is not supported 100%, I know in Google Play u can download it, but as I mentioned it is not support, coz lag, the same I know that 2K saying too.

I dont know why this thread was bumped but you guys could try this

There is no reasons to do that. Simple things just free more RAM memory, do some changes like optimizations of battery, in Game app do better performance and ect. Turn off notifications which u don't need, to close apps in background which u don't need to work and others simple things, don't forget to sometime reboot smartphone. I do that everyday for several times if I playing all day. Coz battery can be alive several hours of full of playing games, so when I going to charge it, I do reboot too. It recommend by manufacturers.

Iam An Android Developer....But I Stopped Development for android since last year.....Iam Currently Using Galaxy A70 Also...Its a beast........i know why games are lagging and FPS Drop issue...its happening because of Software Optimization...Wait For April Security Patch Where Samsung Will Fix The Issue regarding fps drop and lagging in games...Its a Virtual Memory Bug....Which Can Be Fixed also by android developers but you need to root your device...i would suggest you to wait till april security patch ...after that u will notice a big improvement on gaming part and its related bugs...Ram Has Nothing To Do With It Guys....And SNAPDRAGON 675 SOC Is A Very Powerful SOC..And This SOC Is Capable To Run Any Games Smoothly...U Should Know That Guys...
So The Moral Of My Point Is Software Optimization
Thank You......

hello there,
I got the same device for Call Of Duty Mobile and unfortunately i'm facing major issues since android updated to 10.
It could be just a coincidence but, i didn't face the problems before the update. my problem is with the video mainly: the screen turns black, while i still can hear the sound, the device answers correctly to the moves i do when the screen is black (tested with an other player telling me what my character was doing).
to try to have root cause, i installed the app 'game booster plus from samsung store), and it seems that it's a problem of a temperature and / or Graphic processor) the idicators turn red before the game crashes.
i raised the issue to samsung and no solution from them until now... safe mode and basic stuff that doesn't help... like resetting the phone...
in my opinion, my last test should be hard reset the phone to get back to android 9 and try.
else I shoud try a cooler behind the phone while playing.

i'm really bothered , because this device should be a beast and i saw how amazing the game was on lower specifications like galaxy A51.

i'll post back here if any news.
