Epic is a company that should never be trusted. Especially when they have shady practices. They want users to side load their game. It was found out that only a week later that Epics Fortnite had a vulnerability added to users Android smartphones. Plus it was shown that Epic could have added their app to the play store, and Epics monetization could be on their servers, they didn't have to use Google's play monetization at all. Google's play store would have never let those vulnerabilities happen, if Epic used Google's Play store.

Android 8, RAM 4 GB, Minimum Adreno 530, really? LoLoL With such specs being a requirement, they are headed to a stunning Failure. And it is not even available on PlayStore. They couldn't have done it any worse.

So true. And when using additional software which permits the use of a controller you get your account banned.

Using the smartphone screen as a controller is actually better than using a controller.
