Just like any other mobile game, Genshin Impact supports on-screen controls. Players can change settings like Camera and ADS sensitivity, gyro aiming, walk/run mode under controls. For now, Genshin Impact doesn’t support any alteration to the on-screen settings. Players cannot change the location of their virtual d-pad or any other on-screen buttons.

One of the best things about Genshin Impact mobile is that players can fully customize their graphical experience. There are a wide variety of graphic settings that let players choose between visual fidelity or performance.

  • FPS( Frames Per Second): Players can choose between 30 or 60 fps. More fps -> smooth gameplay.
  • Render Resolution: It enables players to choose the overall resolution of the game(ex- 480p, 720p etc.)
  • Shadow Quality: It enables players to choose the quality of shadows projected by in-game assets(Buildings, NPCs, etc.)
  • Visual Effects: Visual quality of the game. Defines how visually crisp assets look.
  • SFX Quality: Special effects quality setting used for the elemental effects and such other visuals related to particles.
  • Overall Settings: select between lowest, low, medium, high and highest.
  • Motion Blur: It is the apparent streaking of moving objects(i.e in-game characters).

Tip for audio settings: Keep it on max and set audio(voice-overs) to Japanese and take control of Lisa and climb any structure. Following these steps will help you to benchmark the sound quality.
