    Default Is there a way to tell app compatibility of a device?

    I'm wanting to get a new phone and thinking about getting a cheaper Android phone. I hate getting a new phone and finding out that certain games aren't compatible with it, so I was wondering if there was a way to find out before I actually buy a new device.

    Obviously, almost all apps and games will be compatible with the popular, high-end phones, but what about things like the Samsung Galaxy Avant from T-Mobile? It has good enough specs to run most of the games that I would want to play, but past experience has shown me that that doesn't always mean anything.

    I can search the Play Store as a device I already own and apps that aren't compatible will let me know. Is there a way to search the Play Store as a device that you don't have to check app compatibility? Or is there maybe a way to check what all devices a particular game/app are listing as compatible? I have searched around for a while and can't find anything to help with this.

    Welcome to Android Central! That's a good question. Maybe you could email the developer of a game or app that you're interested in and see if they can tell you about the compatibility.

    Thanks for the response. I thought about trying that, but was just hoping for a more technical way of doing it so that I check multiple apps/games without having to email them all individually. That will probably be what I end up having to do though.

    Or search for someone with the same device as you, and, if they're kind enough, they may tell you if certain apps ar working for them or not.
