Choosing an Android device to purchase for your users can be an overwhelming decision. There are many options available on the market, but not all Android devices are created equal. For example, some devices that may be cheaper to purchase in bulk are ultimately more prone to suffer in performance and longevity.

Below we have detailed our recommendations when considering an Android device for you and your team. These are recommendations based on other user's experiences and internal testing. However, we do not require that you follow any of the below guidelines with the exception that all android devices must support a minimum of Android 5.0 to use the GoFormz App.

Recommended Specifications for Android Phones

When considering new Android devices, we recommend striving to meet the following specifications:

  • Runs on Android 10 or higher

  • Device has at least 8GB of RAM

  • Device is using Snapdragon 855 CPU or higher

Below are great Android phone options that meet these recommendations:

Recommended Android Phones

  • Samsung Galaxy S10 / S20 / S21 (includes Plus and Ultra variants)

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10 / Note 20 (includes all variants)

  • OnePlus 7 / 7T / 8 / 8 Pro

  • Google Pixel 4 / Pixel 4a 5G / Pixel 5

Alternative Android Phones & Recommendations

While we strongly recommend using phones that meet the above parameters, we do understand that not every business can support such an expense. If you are looking for cheaper devices that may still perform well, we recommend the following:

  • Runs on Android 7 or higher

  • Device has at least 6GB of RAM

  • Device is using Snapdragon 765 CPU or higher

Recommended Budget Phones

  • Samsung Galaxy S20 FE

  • Samsung Galaxy A90 5G

  • Motorola One 5G / One 5G Ace

  • Motorola Edge

  • Google Pixel 4a

  • Nokia 8.3 5G

  • LG Velvet

Android Tablets

Unfortunately, there are not many high-performance Android Tablets on the market today for an affordable price. Generally speaking, if you are interested in purchasing tablets over phones for your team, we recommend looking at the Apple iPads as they tend to perform more efficiently at a lower price point.

With that said, below are a few Android tablets that we do recommend and will likely perform well with GoFormz and other apps.

Recommended Android Tablets

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S6

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S7

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+

Devices that do not work well with GoFormz

Finally below is a list of known devices that do not work well with the GoFormz application or other common applications. We recommend avoiding these devices for your team and striving for one of our previously mentioned recommendations.

  • Samsung Galaxy A20 / A21

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab A series

  • Motorola Moto G Play / G7 Play / G Fast

  • Motorola Moto E / Moto E6

  • Nokia 2.3 / 2.4

  • OnePlus Nord N100

Note: We do not test any devices with Exynos, Kirin, Tegra, or MediaTek CPU's, and can not make recommendations for these devices.
