I think you need gyro. Even then I heard IPhone compass is not very accurate,
It’s 2° to 3° off. I’m no mean expert in this stuff😀Wait for some experts to chip-in.

Im open to donations ;) lol. buying a device on lollipop pretty much means it will be good for a while, I brought an S3 when it was new and its glitching real bad now :p. But honestly im over spending money on a “brand”.

Ive heard the S2 has a good display for IF. Only issue with an S2 is they are really old imo

I would not go for Samsung phone they way it is now. Full of background craps and too many useless apps you can’t remove. Unless you root it. I’ll think about buying Samsung if the bring their own OS without tons of crap or android without crap apps.
