As soon as it launched by Epic on Aug, 9th, many players, especially for specific Galaxy smartphones users, was thrilled to access to Fortnite Android Beta and be granted with their bonus in the game afterwards - exclusive Fortnite Galaxy skin for Galaxy Note 9 and Table S4 users, 15k V-Bucks for pre-order Galaxy S9 consumers as well.
However, other than specific Samsung Galaxy devices, substantial other Android devices are all put into a waiting list - including Google, Asus, Essential, Huawei, LG, Nokia, OnePlus, Xiaomi etc - “We’ll start rolling out access to players as we work on supporting a wider variety of devices in the next few days. Players will be granted access in waves to Fortnite Battle Royale and will be sent instructions on how to download and play” said by Fortnite Admin on the other day.
Even the first crew who got the privilege to access Beta at the very beginning as early adopters, gameplay experience for some of them couldn’t measure up to their expectations. It turned out to be a “horrible catastrophe.”

“this is quite unplayable,” TheOneCode said. Many Galaxy S7 users&Fortnite beta players tried to fix this problem by reinstalling Beta file, but that didn’t work out eventually with insufficient improvements.
Fortnite Support Team have been interfering with this matter and asked for Mobile system details to locate the crux of this issue. Considering the much more attention they have given into this bug(compared with the circumstances of other Bug Report forums in Epic official site), most of the participators have a positive attitude of this fixing progress by Epic support.
