How do people get around all the "guides and cheat guides" that show up in the list with the same name as the game? It's quite frustrating.

You're correct that is really is frustrating...
I'm wondering what Microsoft will do now that they've taken over the Nokia market as well.
I dread it might be worse than the google market in a few months.

Android store lacks loads of games, my brother always complains and suffers that I have all these magnificent games on my iPhone and in the app store.

BUT... I do envy the beautiful panel of his note 2. When I compare the two side by side, the iPhone 5's screen and display color look terrible in comparison. Games on his screen look visually better, with deeper blacks/whites, color, sounds etc.

But... The experience of games on his device, is horrific! Reason:
Too many ADS!!!
Yes, an advert can pop-up mid-game, randomly which shatters the experiences when playing great titles. Even premium games have the same issue to a certain extent.

Plus, the apps are blurry (like stretched) no retina display. On iPhones .. They look sharper (no pixels) and iPhone (surprisingly) loads graphic rich titles faster than the note 2 can.. Although the note 2 has a better processor & ram than iPhone 5. But that is due to the fact.. iPhone & iOS work well together, and both are optimised much better then android and to hardware components.

If you want the best gaming experience on smartphones & tablets... Get an iPhone or iPad. But if you want a better display for a phone, get an android phone... But for tablets... Strictly get iPad over android tabs.

The worst thing is... My brother who was an iPhone 4S user before his Note 2, wants his iPhone back! He misses everything about it, especially the smoother gaming experience.

I'm not sure why it is unwise to compare the two.

As far as things now showing up that you search for, that is by design on googles part. You can type in the exact name of a game or app and if it doesn't have the metrics needed to show, it won't. I believe they go by how many reviews or a minimum download limit but I'm just pulling that out of my @ss. I do know that it's a real thing though. Perhaps they have some good reason to do it, but it would frustrate me.

Yeah for sure. One big issue with Android is that there so many different phones running different versions. So that makes apps more difficult to develop and optimize.

I agree that Android phones, primarily Samsung, are super sexy. I get that thrown in my face enough. Really it comes down to each individual person and how they use their phone. (practicing my wireless sales pitch )
