Fortnite fans are stealing the Galaxy skin from Note 9 demo units, and Samsung is not impressed

Those brave early adopters that used the Note 9 to venture into the world of thousand-dollar phones were rewarded by Samsung with a Fortnite Game Bundle, worth $150, which includes 15,000 V-Bucks and an exclusive skin.
To receive said Galaxy Fortnite skin, you had to register with the Shop Samsung app and pick the Game Bundle option, then redeem it by signing in to your Samsung Account on your shiny new Note 9 or Tab S4.
They download Fortnite on the Galaxy Note 9 or Tab S4 in the stores, log with their game accounts, played the required three matches, and went on their merry way. In a day or two, a Fortnite gift box lands in their account, and they snatch the coveted Galaxy Skin for the joy of everyone involved in the scheme.
Everyone but Samsung, as apparently the phone maker is not impressed by randos trying to steal its Note 9 thunder, and have started putting the warning you see here in some shops. There is a whole thread dedicated to the steps you need to take to snatch it, but the experience of hustling for the Galaxy Skin is increasingly sounding like this one below:
- Display 6.4" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Octa-core, 2800 MHz
- Storage 512 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 4000 mAh(29h 3G talk time)

Tried Fortnite out last night for the first time and I wasn't overly impressed. The game controls seemed finicky and for some reason I didn't get a character creation screen I just had some random Avatar. I have had a better experience with PUBG, hell I had a better experience with Rules of Survival before PUBG even came out.

Fortnite uses skins, which can be unlocked through their seasonal battle passes or purchased through Microtransactions. PUBG uses a limited character creator and rewards players with clothing options. On mobile PUBG is definitel better because 50% of Fortnite is building and relying on the touch screen exclusively to switch weapons and building material makes for a poor experience
