I would like to see a "low graphic" option, One way I see this is: the "low graphic" option would include reduction in graphics resolution, turning off shadows, limit the effects, etc.

Another thing is to have options for individual visual items such as toggle for hovering fields, layered fields, portal effects, and so on.

Some players just need to see the basics (portal colors, good visibility, minimum to no animations) which is something that Redacted excels in.

I hope this would be considered as an option in future updates.


  • Great suggestion, At least it would be something that could save up on battery life.

    This would be awesome, low graphics could help not only with battery drain, but people who has health problems because of animations. Please Niantic consider low graphic option!

  • Not only, but also would make all variety of people still enjoy the game with no sense of lagging while nuking portal filled areas.

  • It's not a new idea. In one of previous version even been a "low graphic" switch. Not such a big advantage in battery consuming - so I think automatic choice of graphic would be better

  • Phone processing is higher with higher graphics, drains battery faster. Heats faster during summer, phone's with aluminum casings have tendency to heat up and warn you that phone is too hot under 27 degree heat. Therefore less gametime in the field. My phone runs it, bit all those fancy effects are simply unnecessary. In which Redacted was supreme in that point of view
