ENTERPRISING scammers have been targeting Android users on YouTube and other social media platforms as they look to profit off the hype surrounding Fortnite on Android. Epic Games has been promising that Fortnite would be coming to Android phones this summer for several months, but the void left by the lack of concrete detail on offer has been filled by hackers, scammers and all manner of other online ne'er-do-wells. This has only increased in recent days, according to GameRant. This comes after Epic Games has also confirmed the game WON'T be on Google's App Store, with Epic CEO Tim Sweeney blaming the "30 per cent store tax", a reference to the cut of all app sales Google takes. Eager gamers will have to download the official installer from Epic directly instead. The fact that gamers know they will have to download the app from the Internet only increases the risk of fraud when compared to limiting it to official app stores, and seems to have energised scammers. These scammers are now … [Read more...] about Fortnite Android download scams rise as mobile release nears

FORTNITE is already on iPhone, and it's about to land on Android smartphones too – but not all phone models will get it. Some handsets are simply too old, or lacking the necessary computing horsepower to handle the game. If you've just forked out on a powerful new blower, you'll probably be fine. But if you're using particularly old (or particularly cheap) models, you might find yourself unable to play. Samsung customers will get the first stab at the game, of course – at least according to rumours. Fortnite for Android is expected to be exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for 30 days after the new phone launches in August. After that, Fortnite will be opened up to a list of white-listed devices that have passed rigorous testing by Epic Games. That list, according to the Epic Games website, reads as follows: Google Pixel 2 Google Pixel 2 XL Huawei Mate 10 Huawei Mate 10 Lite Huawei Mate 10 Pro Huawei P10 Huawei P10 Plus Huawei P10 Lite Huawei P9 Huawei P9 Lite Huawei P8 … [Read more...] about Fortnite on Android – only THESE few smartphones will be able to run the mobile game
Ask any devoted mobile gamer which one's the most anticipated Android game of this summer and you will undoubtedly get "Fortnite!" as an answer. The battle royale phenomenon is still riding the high wave and shows no signs of stopping. Quite the contrary -- the Android release of the game will inevitably increase its popularity by a serious margin.But it doesn't seem that the game will be compatible with just about any beater of a phone -- the hardware requirements are very likely to weed out a large tally of Android devices out there, making the game compatible with a more limited slew of phones. Found on Epic Games' website is a what can be perceived as a list of all devices that Fortnite Mobile could be compatible at launch. Now, we'd take that list with a ton of salt given that multiple obviously powerful phones of the near past are weirdly missing from the list. Tons of OnePlus devices, the LG G7 ThinQ, a bunch of handsets from Nokia, Xiaomi, and other popular manufacturers are … [Read more...] about Will Fortnite only be available on these Android devices? We don’t think so
Article Contents1 P20 versus P20 Pro2 Beauty is skin deep3 So, about the cameras4 Good, but greatness remains a question The P20 and P20 Pro are two of the most attractive, interesting phones Huawei has ever produced - and you'll never see them on sale in America. That was something Huawei was sure to reiterate during our time at a hands-on briefing with the devices in San Francisco last week. Huawei's recent troubles with the US government, AT&T, Verizon, and Best Buy are still pretty recent news, and that certainly hung over the hour-long presentation we were given. While Huawei has never distributed the P-series in the US (aside from the P8 Lite, which was a P-series in name only), it probably stings a little to know that your notch-display, triple camera flagship is going to be called "the Chinese iPhone X you can't buy" by a bunch of American journalists. But in a world where differentiating your smartphone in a meaningful way is getting harder by the year, Huawei is still … [Read more...] about Huawei P20 and P20 Pro hands-on: Can Huawei finally challenge Apple and Samsung?
