Just a heads up, the Android version is bad.
...not because of the developers, but because of the users.
There are many trolls on there.
By trolls, I mean people with Gaming PC's who are using BlueStacks Emulator and playing PUBG-Android on Windows10 with a better monitor, headset, keyboard, and mouse.
It is literally un-winnable at this stage.
Sure, you can grab something like an iPega 9055 or a GameSir T1s for your phone, or even better use an Nvidia Shield or GPD XD Plus... but that will only give you an advantage over people using the touchscreen. You will still get creamed by the PC players.
I'm not sure about iOS, but I am curious to find a gamepad like the GameSir T1s that natively supports Apple MFi. There's the PXN Speedy, but it looks very very low-quality :\

It is ENTIRELY dependent on how good your country's internet connection is, so YMMV...
PUBG Mobile runs better on a Galaxy Note 3 (SD 800) than on a Xiaomi Mi 5S (SD 821.) Even at the lowest settings, PUBG on Mi 5S keeps dropping to below 15FPS far more often than the GN3.
*both devices are using 1080P screens and 3GB RAM.
It also becomes a slideshow on ANY SD 810 device. Rules of Survival (ROS) and even heavier titles run better on the 810 and 821 phones.
It's as if Tencent doesn't want to further optimise the game...

What make me laugh are people that think that playing casual games is "serious gaming".
Even if Im not fan of that name, there is clear line between casual gaming and serious gaming. where serious gaming is playing regularly getting better stats, playing with factions and leagues. Or playing more complex games from top to bottom.
If you think that playing game like pubg once/two times per week just because you are bored or like some fun is serious... its not, this IS called casual playing.
Just because you know few mobile games that you play often... doesnt mean anything.
Its like saying that you ride your small city car everyday, and you call your self rally driver because you spend lots of time driving...

It's literally 24/7 & dedicated one, something like that ain't even possible on other platform. I literally know people who ware playing under the shower. So when someone says to me that he is a serious dedicated player on either console or PC I lough out loudly.

Who are you kidding about FB closing dummy account, there are still a lot of trolls on FB, if your dummy account is dormant, just use for linking games FB does not care, i have friends that does that, he has a dummy account just for simcity, clash of clans, pubg, fortnite and some other games just for that use
I installed it on my J7 2016 like a week ago, and it runs fine for me on medium settings. There are still some stutters sometimes, but dropping details to low just does not fix it. I guess they just need to optimize it a bit more, and that should fix those problems. But yeah, it's a fun game to "kill" some time, and I like it so far.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 02 Apr 2018The real definition of gaming is on a desktop or laptop, but it is hilarious when someone says... more2016-2018 in a nutshell:
Gamer = playing games on phone.
Social person = having 1000 friends on facebook.
Artist = having instagram account with lots of sunrise/selfies images.
Musician = Recite bad made rhymes to regge/dubstep sample in the background.
Journalist = writing biased articles without any experience in topic on some random internet sites
Ah... life is amazing...

And what kind of skins are you talking about? I didn't see any skins on PUBG Mobile available for real money.
P.S. As far as I recall, making dummy accounts on Facebook is against their ToS. I had a colleague at work using alias instead of real name, and somebody reported her to moderators. She was forced to change the name on her profile. So the bottom line is FB is working hard to identify their users, so making a dummy account will accomplish nothing.

It's like when the PS3 came out and a lot of games were still looking better on the Xbox 360 on some ports just due to it being easier to optimise for (more similar to windows) despite the PS3 being more powerful.
That is a boon for iphone still if there system works and keeps performance on level but it's not a slight on android in particular, it's just devs not squeezing out or making use of the extra power.
rules of survival, 02 Apr 2018ros is lifeWow, ROS is life, that's ridiculous. Are u telling me that u don't have to aim when u shoot, even if the gun got no scope? Jesus, common logic and yet they can't get it right. Noice physics logic the ROS developers have...

"" it's not a as simple as plugging in via USB""
Actually yes it is pretty easy, unless you have iPhone.
As far as game support it, pugging controller to android phone via BT or USB is not a problem.
Also mouse and keyboard is not hard. Best way is it to plug mouse via usb and keyboard via BT. Cheapest BT keyboard that I have and it work perfectly cost me 12 euro(its a size of tablet).
You can also in the same time screen share game to TV keeping other connection stable and with good router configuration latency of video stream is not visible at all.
Beside Action FPS/TPS on phone = fail. You can play it for fun once per month but any real gaming is just hilariously bad... If consoles games need to be filled with aim assists and dumped-down AI that just stand still waiting to be shoot. Mobie action games are 2x worst. 90% of people play such games in home... so why not just play proper game on PC/Laptop?
The game is also free, which sounds like a bargain until you play it for a few minutes and suddenly feel like purchasing the Windows or Xbox version. This is absolutely a way to get you to buy the full-fat version of the game, a gateway drug of sorts.
The game is free, correct, but it has nothing to do with pushing you buy a PC version. PUBG Mobile was developed and is owned by Chinese Tencent corporation, so in no way do they profit from you buying the PC/Xbox version of the game.
Which should make you wonder, where's the catch? (Hint: Facebook login *wink*wink*)
