Everyone should avoid this game like the plague. Especially when you have to side load this app in-order to run it. It's a game for crying out loud.

People enjoy playing it so what's your problem. Let them do what they want. I'm not a fan of this on mobile because the controls suck but to each his own. Not bashing anyone who plays.

Problem is Epic wants users to sideload the app. When Epic could have easily put Fortnite on the Play store for free. Especially when Epics servers already control all users, and everything that they have purchased. Google doesn't force developers or companies to go through them for monetization. That's an Apple thing.

What to expect in android games is that they are not optimized. Unlike apple, all their games are optimized so that people will patronize their in app games, and epic games are raking money. Too bad for Sammy, needs to have 4000mah and 8gb of ram to play this game smoothly. Meanwhile, even mid tier iphone SE can play the game without crashing or lagging. Different worlds!!!

Dude, Apple themselves admitted that they slow down their older phones, there are tons of videos out there showing iPhones shutting down while playing less extensive games than this, yet here you are claiming that the 5s will play fortnite without any issues lol If you said the iPhone 8 or X instead of 5s, I wouldn't have had any problem with your silly comment.

He said iPhone SE, NOT 5S! The SE has the same internals as the 6S. Big difference. And also, were expecting the weak-a... processor of the 5S or 6 to run iOS 12 with the exact same fluidity as the iPhone 8 or X? Yes, Apple "tried to preserve the battery" so they capped the performance of older iDevices, but you shouldn't be expecting a five-year old phone to run just as well as a five-week old phone.
