These are the current issues with GTA LCS for the android port.
 
Black Screen and Freezing after starting a new game:
This issue is most likely a compatibility issue. Which Lucid Games and Rockstar are currently working on.
 
Stuttering and Random lag drops:
This is also a compatibility issue and an issue with the port itself. Most devices are experiencing random stuttering and frame drops. This can cause the Radio to repeat the last 2 seconds it was played. The radio will repeat until the game is paused, or the station is changed.
 
Random crashing in game:
This is a bug with not having Google Play Music installed. If you experience this, Install Play Music, open it once, and then go on GTA LCS. 
 
Texture Issue (Credit to Tomasak):
Textures of people, especially in cutscenes sometimes seem to be lower quality than PSP.

Mipmaps (Credit to _CP_):
Lower mipmaps are used, only high-end devices are loading them like Shield tablet, maybe it's just a bug or intented feature. 


Anyone experiencing other issues? post them and I'll update them to this list.

First thing i did was checking how it looks on iPhone 6. It looks same.

Edit:

And the shield tablet tv (which has more powerful tegra chip than tablet)

Spoiler

So possibly yet ANOTHER compatibility issue? or a limit to how much mipmaps a device uses?

That should not be called as framedrop, edit your post please, this sh*t supposed to be a game, not a slideshow! Lucid published a LCS slideshow for android!
It is not near playable. I have also mid-to-high phone, a Galaxy S4, which can run San Andreas at medium settings.
Also, anyone experiencing bug on dynamic shadows setting? Shadows looks like made of green and yellow pixels for me. Maybe I post a picture tomorrow.

Yeah, exactly like this. dunno why my phone lags that much, it should not have. They should give the work War Drum again instead. I'm currently stuck with a Windows Android emulator, but, as you know, keyboard mapping is not very plausible. Currently I am cruising the city around only. Maybe a few weeks later there will a Windows Store version, and I can play it that way.

Radio stations randomly went silent, I dont know what trigger this.Only know solution to fix this is death, busted or loading new savegame.Also there are some problems with particles effect when shooting in rain into cars.Interior of boats are visible in front of objects many meters like some ghost.Also these same interiors dissapear when floating on water.

Playing on unrooted nvidia shield tablet android version is 6.0 .I tried to fix this by reinstall but these problems still persist.

Rockstar support ask me for video of radio silence, I made two.

Answer was this

Thank you for letting us know about this issue with the radio. We'll let the right people know and an investigation will begin. We appreciate your ongoing patience as we investigate the issue. Unfortunately, at this moment in time we cannot give an exact time for a response, but we can confirm that the issue will be looked into. Should you run into any further issues in the meantime, we would be happy to assist you with them. Thanks again.

Best regards,

I've a problem with the car windows. Some of the car windows are always flickering. And the sound of some cars and bikes are not continuous. And the Map is not visible in pause menu..! 😠

Is it just me or does the PCJ-600 sound like this;

vroooom (dead silence) vrooom (silence) vroom (silence)

Look, what I mean by this is that you know the delay between every sound? Broooom       broom

Well, the engine stops so suddenly, then brooom

If you still don't get it then let me show you in this video;

Alright, so focus on 1:40 to 1:54.

1:42 to 1:43 has this weird effect

1:44 to 1:45 too

1:47 has it briefly

1:51 can too but it may be the delay from the acceleration button

 

It just like cuts the sound off.

That's just the first part of the video, it is the entire video, plus the game.

The water is completely dark (doesn't look like water). It may be because of wrong graphics.

Currently I have a following problem. My latest storyline mission completed is Munitions dump, but can't get further. I won't get any phone calls, except one from McAffrey about not having met him. Nothing else. So, what to do? 

 

EDIT Problem solved

That's probably because you may have a low end device that doesn't support the game. Do you guys know what else is annoying? The dark water texture and the poor targeting controls.

Folks, I have a new problem. I play with Honor 8 (Android) and have huge problems with some unique stunt jumps, especially with the jump #13 at this video, starting around 5:10.  How to speed up the acceleration with PCJ 600 as there appears to be no special control for that? Or how about with car? I have tried with PCJ, Freeway, Angel, Police car, Banshee.. No success.

Simply push your finger up on the acceleration button. Analog steering works the same way as on a controller.
The game tells me how to do this whenever I pass Home Sweet Home.

I guess the hunter is pretty fast. PCJ would be my choice of vehicle to complete stunts.

Yeah, LCS Hunter is probably one of the fastest vehicles ever.

However, it can't be obtained on the mobile version.

I lost my patience with PCJ. Cheetah gave a few almost there-like attempts. Banshee also feels promising but its steering is pretty unstable. How about the special bike we get after Avenging angels? I forgot to store it after doing the mission on all islands, can I get the bike again if I repeat those missions?

I don't know if this is what he meant but for the targeting, as soon as you kill an enemy it goes straight to the next enemy extremely fast and you will sometimes end up killing the wrong person. Or if you're trying to shoot someone in front of you for some reason it aims at someone else
