Samsung’s Game Tuner app lets you dynamically adjust a game’s resolution and framerate

Samsung has released a useful new utility onto the Play Store that should be especially useful for gamers. The app, which is called Game Tuner, allows you to adjust the resolution and frame rate of specific games on your device for fine-tuning performance.

The app is pretty simple to use and will set custom resolutions and frame rates for each game installed on your device. Adjusting the resolution can go one of two ways; you can force a game to render at a higher resolution for some added clarity, especially on Samsung’s line of 2k displays, or you can cut the resolution back a bit which should help save on power consumption and battery life. Lowering the resolution will also increase frame rate, since there’s less to render, but the Game Tuner app will let you cap frame rate anywhere from 15 to 60 fps if you’re getting some stuttering on specific games.

The app is currently only available to the S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and Note 5, but hopefully Samsung gets this ported to some older phones where it’s really needed. After all, how many games actually struggle to run on something as powerful as a Galaxy Note 5?
