Which Is The Best

Out of the three i think Vortex is much better than the other two.I personally have used Vortex and it performs well on my device.I use OnePlus 5T.It works well on my device.

Keep in mind that these can be used on any OS wheather it be Windows , Mac, Android , iOS.

If you are looking for playing GTA 5 free on your device then it isn’t possible currently.All the Apps that i have talked about requires a small subscription fees some of them even provides trial use for few days or hours.It is worth the money you pay.

Don’t fall for the False news about playing GTA 5 on Android.In youtube there are many videos most of them are click baits just for making money.Some of them even provide APK files in there website.These APK will be either GTA Sanandreas or someothe Fake apps.

It can also be Malwares or Virus which can infect your system.Some sites provide surveys just before downloading the fake APK.This survey will be either to purchase something or register to some sites.

All those are totally fake and registering in those sites can lead to many Phishing activities.

The methods which i have given is the only way of playing GTA 5 currently on Android or iOS.
