Is this indicative of a cheap, crappy GPU or bad OpenGL drivers? Or is it a coincidence and that the developers for these two apps use the same bad OpenGL techniques? And by cheap and crappy I mean bad, not just mediocre or underpowered.

  • You could try some benchmarking app for comparing your GPU standards. Antutu has a good app for that. Try that and test your device's GPU and 3D performance rating. – Lucky Oct 22 '15 at 20:30
  • I did, actually. Yes, my GPU is subpar, but on further consideration that's not really what I'm asking about. Let me revise the title. – JesseTG Oct 22 '15 at 22:06
