I was thinking about getting it for the phone since I currently don't own any consoles or a PC. Are all the features from the console and PC version still on the mobile version as well? Is anything different or new about it? Is it possible to mod the mobile version?

modding is possible but controls (as many experts say) are bad and it may never spawn ambulance/fire truck when causing an accident! ALSO people have reported mysterious lag on various phones plus everything in there looks shiny/oiled like every single character was in spraytan musclemen contest! Best would be getting ps2 version (V2 is best on that) and perfect middle way would be getting cheap laptop and pc version!

Yes it's the best mobile game there is. All the features are there except the cinematic camera and free spawning ambulances and firetrucks. It's not a compressed or watered down port or anything. The graphics are also a lot better.

I have the game for my iPad mini. I have also played an Android version of the game. Controls aren't hard to get used to, just what you'd expect on a touch screen device.

Graphics look good, there are no ambulances or fire trucks that spawn when something blows up or someone dies.

Settings on Android are more customizable than iOS, but if you have a device like an iPad the bigger screen makes a good difference.

The biggest deal for me personally is that it is missing a lot of music due to expired licenses.

Ontop of my distaste for missing music, cheats do not work for any mobile GTA versions, despite myths of attaching USB keyboards or anything. Android supports mods so far as I know to bring cheats back.

Good luck on your decision. I personally recently bought a used ps2, an HD component cable for it, and the original GTA releases to play them as they were originally meant/released :)

these are the reasons I HATE mobile versions WITH PASSION!

i'd add on mobile screen controls are the worst ever to play any 3d game!

If San Andreas has an AFK Auto-COMBAT auto-mission gameplay, easy then yes.
Pocket edition for SAMP Rockstar style.

San Andreas mobile version is possible these days, thanks to the hard work all the modders have been putting around. As for getting the game on Mobile, I'd not strongly recommend this as the controls are difficult to get adjusted to. I had a hard time with some Missions, especially the Flying and RC Missions. There's only so much you can do with on-screen controls. And when it comes to the above stuff, it's terrible. Unless you've played the game on a PC/Console before, I'd not recommend getting it on a Mobile.

however there is possibility to use actual generic usb gamepad which you use on pc version usually.

via female normal sized usb to male type of micro usb converter, also you can try connecting ps4 controller via bluetooth or failsafe  way try both ps3 and ps4 ones with the usb converter!

MOBile meaning the Pocket edition consoles like PSP that's terrible for touch screen gamers.

I bought it because I thought it would be funner to gamble on that game than with another gambling app and it really is. I would recommend playing it on console or PC if you never played it before.

Definitely. The only games I have on my iPhone are 3d GTAs. Definitely get them, only ten quid, but hours of endless fun. Even if you only want to fool around while on a bus and not do missions.

If it's not on PC it's not worth it. I have it on my iphone and the controls are a minus.

I highly recommend getting San Andreas on a console or PC first. But if you have to get it on a mobile device, then the game can still be enjoyable.

Pocket/MOBile controls like console.
I'd still like the Auto-Combat Missions AFK gameplay on my bucket list.
