Requirements for an android phone that will run the new SmartThings app

From the Google Play description:
[App requirements]
Some mobile devices may not be supported.

  • RAM size : 2GB over

For some reason, it seems that the Samsung A21s (Android 10, 3GB RAM) comes under the “some not supported” disclaimer; I got a “not compatible with your device” message when I tried to migrate from SmartThings Classic.

So, what else does my next phone need? Is it likely a better display (A21s is 720x1600)? In which case what is the minimum display spec? Or is there anything else I should be aware of

I’d be really grateful for any and all thoughts. Thank you.

Download smartthings from the galaxy store! I just did it on my A11!

It is certainly worth a look. On my Samsung, which came with SmartThings installed, it is the Google Play version that works fine and the Galaxy Store version that isn’t compatible and so not available. So it seems to vary rather a lot.

Wow. That could possibly have worked for my A21s since the A11 resolution is similar. Unfortunately I can’t try it now because I changed the A21s for a different model. But really grateful for the update Dena - I didn’t even know or at least hadn’t noticed there was a Galaxy app store!

Yes - this worked for me with A21S
