Device Compatibility Thread (19.1) - Built By Us For You!

Device Compatibility Thread


Welcome to the Community Built List of Global Compatible Devices
Revision 19.1 (Replay/ A330 Update)

2017-best-phones-1

My Objective

The purpose of this thread is to have a wiki where people can submit what device they use, what quality they use, and how well it runs, so that’s over time we can build up a list of compatible devices, and how well those devices work on what settings. So if anyone asks about if their device is supported or if a certain device works well with Infinite Flight, we can direct them to this list!


As many members looking at this thread are considering a new device, it is important that we provide clean and accurate information to provide a helpful oversight of what devices are on offer.

Recognised Contributors include @Starley @Levet @ServerGhost although you can contact any member via PM for more information on a specific device


How To Format

This thread has been made a wiki so that you guys can add your devices to the list.
However, please do not edit devices that have already been added, and do not edit the general thread format


When Adding a device to the list, please use the below format for both Android and iOS devices. Please be as honest as possible about your device performance.
If you wish to add your opinion on why you like the device, feel free to do so in notes, but again, please be as honest as possible, but try keep it brief so I don’t hit the character limit on this thread :)


Formatting Examples

Google Pixel / iPhone 7 - @user

OS: Android 9.0 Pie/ iOS 11.2.1
Hardware: Snapdragon 821, 4GB (RAM)/ A10 Fusion, 2GB (RAM)
Rendering Quality: Best/ Best
Texture quality: High/ High
Anti-Aliasing: On/ On
Limit framerate: Off/ On
Airplane count: Very High/ High
GeekBench Scores: 1918 , 6316 / 3379 , 5495
Notes: One of the most powerful phones, even in 2019. Shows its age at a busy airport, otherwise runs perfecly/ Occasionally when airport is busy you will have to turn off Anti-Aliasing, but it runs pretty well.


Please note that GeekBench scores are respective to each device. A low score does not suggest that a device is bad. This shows you how each respective device handles it’s own multi core performance.
Thankyou to GSMArena for their free to use website in which a lot of data is used in this thread


Adding Your Device

Adding your Device

Regulars, when adding to this list please use ‘Hide Details’ so this post isn’t a giant flood of text. If you are not adding to this and are just posting on the thread then there is no need as a Regular will do it for you.

If you have any issues or questions about a device, it’s best to contact the user that posted the specifications. Their names are located next to the Device name.


If your device is already listed above, feel free to give your interpretation of its performance. The more data we can get on a specific device, the more reliable. Please note when adding devices, general discussion is allowed, however debating over Android/ iOS and performance can be done via a PM.

We all know Android is the superior software anyways ;)

Add new devices to the END of the list unless otherwise specified. Makes it easier for me to monitor any significant changes.



Device Compatibility List:

Android

High Performance Phones
The phones featured in this part are Android Greats, the most powerful phones under this operating system. No matter what your preference, there is definitely an Android Phone to fit your needs.
Primarily Google, Sony and Samsung in this part


Google Pixel 2XL

Google Pixel 2XL - @Kirito_77

OS: Android QPP3.21 (Developer Preview)
Hardware: Snapdragon 835, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture quality: High
Anti-aliasing: On
Limit Frame Rate: Off
GeekBench Scores: 1918 / 6316
Note: Being (one of) the most powerful phone(s) on the market… You’d expect some amazing results from the Pixel. It does not disappoint. Is stupidly powerful, responsive and a beautiful image. Will heat up considerably if charging (on a fast charger) whilst flying. I’m personally on Android Q Beta 3, stay on Pie for optimal performance.


Google Pixel 2

Google Pixel 2 - @InfiniteNick

OS: Android QPP4.19 (Beta 3)
Hardware: Snapdragon 835, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: Off
Airplane count: Very High
GeekBench Scores: 1813, 6235
Notes: Still a very powerful phone in 2019. I hardly ever experience any issues with this device, besides the occasional lag at busy airports, like FNF. You will feel the phone heat up while in flight, but it’s still super fast, and would still recommend buying today. Still a super smooth phone after almost two years of ownership.


Razer Phone

Razer Phone - @Kirito_77

OS: Android 8.1 Oreo
Hardware: Snapdragon 835, 8GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture quality: High
Anti-aliasing: On
Limit Frame Rate: Off
GeekBench Scores: 1937 / 6769
Note: 120HZ, 1440p and 8GB RAM make this the ultimate phone for flying, watching videos and just general use. Easily the smoothest device I have ever owned, more than any iOS device, which is why I always have one in my pocket. Can get uncomfortably hot fast due to advanced heat dissipation. Lower graphics during flight to keep cold. Yes I know the picture is of a 2.


Google Pixel 3

Google Pixel 3 - @Igamer

OS: Android 9.0 Pie
Hardware: Snapdragon 845, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture Quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit Framerate: Off (I keep it on, its really personal preference, should be fine if its off)
Airplane Count: Very High
GeekBench Scores: 2395 / 8344
Notes: A very powerful phone that runs Infinite Flight extremely well, I reckon its one of the best phones to play Infinite Flight on. In the top right and left corners there is a very very slight cutoff from some text, but it does not affect anything. (Maybe your OCD…)


Samsung Galaxy S10+

Samsung Galaxy S10+ - @ServerGhost

OS: Android 9.0
Hardware: Snapdragon 855, 12GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Rendering Resolution: High
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: Off
Aircraft Count: Very High
GeekBench Scores: 10,732/ 5,648
Notes: This device is insane, with the highest possible settings available the Galaxy S10+ outperforms the previous S9+ I used for Infinite Flight.
Waiting on some screen size fixes, overall a beautiful device in aesthetic and performance!


Samsing Galaxy Note 9

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - @Nichalas_Petranek

OS: Android 9.0 Pie
Hardware: Exynos 9810, 8GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: Off
Airplane count: Very High
GeekBench Scores: 2377 / 8319
Notes: Runs flawlessly and looks absolutely stunning. Full screen on all Samsung devices has previously been fixed. Samsung’s version of Android 9 is faster than before, if still a little bloated.


OnePlus 6T

maxresdefault

OnePlus 6T - @A-FitzGerald

OS: Android 9.0 Pie
Hardware: Snapdragon 845, 8GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture quality: High
Anti-aliasing: ON
Limit Frame Rate: OFF
Airplane Count: Very High
GeekBench Scores: 2308 / 8951
Note: The best smartphone of 2018 you can get for less than 600$ brand new. It offers one of the best experience of Android you can have with Oxygen OS. There are no fancy, gimmicky, useless features causing your phone to be more prone to lag (looking at you Samsung). Lag? Pfff, what’s Lag?


OnePlus 6

0022080_oneplus-6-latest-model-by-oneplus-ready-stock_600

OnePlus 6 - @david_hartono_S

OS: Android 8.1 Oreo
Hardware: Snapdragon 845, 8GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: On
Airplane count: High
GeekBench Scores: 2474 / 9054
Notes: One of the most powerful phones on sale, a near stock android experience with snappy and responsive controls make this a very enjoyable device to fly on


Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy S8 - @ServerGhost

OS: Android 8.1 Oreo
Hardware: Exynos 8895 or Snapdragon 835, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Best
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: Off
Airplane count: Very High
Low-power mode: Off
Geek bench score: - 1951 / 6428
Notes: no issues with lag you might have a small latency in KLAX or KJFK but other than that its smooth. Screen brightness sometimes all the way up, dont see an issue with performance even though the phone is rendering high resolution. AMOLED has proved prone to burn in, lower brightness during flights.


Samsung Galaxy S8+

14933718879226

Samsung Galaxy S8+ - @ThomasR

OS: Android 8.1 Oreo
Hardware: Exynos 8895 or Snapdragon 835, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Best
Texture Quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit frame rate: On
GeekBench scores: 1782 / 6029
Notes: Runs very well on high quality settings. If the airport is busy you may sometimes need to turn off anti-aliasing to reduce some lag. Overall you will receive a high quality experience from this device.


Samsung Galaxy Note 8

0e9f8c88e329d0da005958b0de11e92c3e144291

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 - @Jeno_Farkas

OS: Android 8.1 Oreo
Hardware: Exynos 8895 or Snapdragon 835, 6BG
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture quality: High
Anti-aliasing: ON
Limit Frame Rate: OFF
GeekBench Scores: 1984 / 6116
Note: With these settings Infinite Flight looks stunning on the Note 8’s huge screen. Worth to mention that with the Frame Limiter set to Off, the phone tends to push itself to the limits no matter how crowded the airport is nearby, which can make it really hot, especially when the phone is in Optimised performance mode, which can later cause some lag.


Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung Galaxy S9 - @OC212 & @ServerGhost

OS: Android 9.0 Oreo
Hardware: Exynos 9810 or Snapdragon 845, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: Off
Aircraft Count: High
GeekBench Scores: 3670 / 9526
Notes: The S9 is Samsung’s 2018 flagship, however is a minimalist upgrade of the S8. It will throttle aggressively if not handled correctly


Sony Xperia XZ Premium

Sony Xperia XZ Premium - @RealAviation1974

OS: Android 7.1.2 Nougat
Hardware: Snapdragon 835, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Best
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: Off
Aircraft Count: High
GeekBench Scores: 1943 / 5824
Notes: With a 4K screen and the price of £500, it’s highly recommended. No restarts required before running, just an amazing device.


Sony XZ1 Compact

Sony XZ1 Compact - @captain_ed

OS: Android 8.0 Oreo
Hardware: Snapdragon 835, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Best
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: On
Airplane count: Very High
GeekBench Scores: 1927 / 6551
Notes : This is the smaller version of Sony’s 2017 flagship, the XZ1. This phone is a great all-rounder for people who want a small device, with a 4.6" screen, that still has flagship-grade specs. Runs Infinite Flight perfectly and smoothly in the busiest of airports without requiring a restart prior to playing.


Top notch Medium contenders
The devices that are powerful, for a considerably lower price, new or 2nd hand. You’ll find Honor, Huawei and Redmi devices here, due to the lower brand recognition and their lack of availability in America.


Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge- @martyflies

OS: Android 7.0 Nougat
Hardware: Snapdragon 820, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Best
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: Off
GeekBench score: 1516 / 4055
Notes: Runs IF without problems on highest settings, though on busy airports it can lag and I have to turn off anti-aliasing. Can be repurchased for a reasonable price. Be wary of heat.


Sony Xperia Z5

Xperia-Z5

Sony Xperia Z5 - @kirito_77

OS: Android 7.1.1 Nougat
Hardware: Snapdragon 810, 3GB
Rendering Quality: Best
Texture Quality: High
Anti- Aliasing: On
Limit Frame Rate: On
GeekBench Scores: 1258 / 3979
Notes: A beautiful display, the Z5 can be picked up in the 32gb variant for under £150. Has a powerful Snapdragon chip and plenty of ram. Is worth noting that the device does struggle around a busy airport (it’s about 3yrs old) and has some overheating and extreme battery drain issues.


Vivo V3

Vivo V3 - @George

OS: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
Hardware: Snapdragon 616, 3GB
Rendering Quality: Good
Texture Quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit Frame Rate: On
Airplane Count: Medium
GeekBench Scores: 1515 / 4625
Notes: It may lag when the airport is busy (If Anti Aliasing is on). But other than that, it works perfectly to me ;) Good all round mid range device.


Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus

redi-5_1824

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus - @Asdew

OS: Android 7.1.2 Nougat
Hardware: Snapdragon 625, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Fast
Texture quality: Low
Anti-Aliasing: Off
Limit framerate: On
Airplane count: Low
GeekBench Scores: 859 / 3892
Notes: 32 GB / 3 GB version. Runs at around 20 FPS with medium traffic, goes to 5-10 with heavy traffic. Smooth while cruising.


Asus Zenfone 4

16191735184463

Zenfone 4 - @Bonnie_TheBunny870

OS: Android 8.0 Oreo
Hardware: Snapdragon 630, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Good
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: On
Airplane count: Very High
Notes: Its a great device for Infinite Flight, it is powerful enough to fly in busy airports (sometimes it lags a bit, so I turn off anti-aliasing).


Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

xperia-z3

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact - @Kirito_77

OS: Android 6.1.1 Marshmallow
Hardware: Snapdragon 801, 2GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture Quality: High
Anti- Aliasing: On
Limit Frame rate: On
Airplane Count: High
GeekBench Scores: 977 / 2569
Notes: The Xperia z3 handles IF surprisingly well. Lowering the quality is difficult to notice due to the tiny screen. An absolute powerhouse, but at a busy airport, the old GPU begins to struggle. Surprisingly good battery life too, and can be bought really cheap.


Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)

Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 - @ItzEhs

OS: Android 7.0 Nougat
Hardware: Exynos 7880, 3GB
Rendering Quality: Good
Texture quality: Medium
Anti-Aliasing: Off
Limit framerate: Off
GeekBench Scores: 774 / 4120
Notes: It lags at busy airports but runs great at cruise


Tablets
Big Android devices packing a punch. Usually underpowered compared to Apple (Besides the Pixel C) but usually at a much more reasonable price point.


Google Pixel Tablet C

Google Pixel Tablet C - @Kirito_77

OS: Android 8.1 Oreo
Hardware: Nvidia Tegra X1, 3GB
Rendering Quality: Ludicrous
Texture quality: High
Anti-aliasing: ON
Limit Frame Rate: OFF
Aircraft Count: very high
GeekBench Scores: 1341 / 3240
Note: A beautiful device running Nvidia Hardware, clean and updated android, plus specs that shadow any iPad. Be mindful of battery life, and Nvidia hardware doing the usual “getting hot” trick. Otherwise, perfect. My personal daily tablet.


Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

3-SM-T820NZKAXAR - @PlaneCrazy

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 2017

OS: Android 8.1 Oreo
Hardware: Snapdragon 820, 4GB
Rendering Quality: Best
Texture quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit frame rate: Off
Airplane Count: High
GeekBench Scores: 1552 / 4108
Notes: Powerful device with a beautiful screen. Runs IF perfectly. It’s basically a galaxy S7. A very big S7… Basically bigger everything


Kindle Fire HD6 😉

r_437_amazon_kindle_fire_hd_6-colors

Amazon Kindle Fire HD6 4th Gen - @Kirito_77

OS: Amazon Android 5.1.6 Lollipop
Hardware: N/A Quad Core, 1GB
Rendering Quality: Best
Texture Quality: High
Anti- Aliasing: On
Limit Frame rate: Off
GeekBench scores: 764 / 1398
Notes: FDS has officially ended support for Amazon and it’s kindle Fire range. However there is a loophole that allows the kindle access to IF. For such an old device, IF runs surprisingly smooth. Takes a while to load up and will lag at a busy airport, but can handle medium. Don’t use as daily driver.


Asus Zenpad 3S 10

asus_zenpad_3s_10-720x720

ASUS Zenpad 3S 10 Z500M - @chris_wing

Anti-Aliasing: Off
Limit framerate: Off
Airplane count: Very High
GeekBench Scores: 1558 / 3709
Notes: Occasionally when an airport is busy you will have to turn the graphics to medium, but it runs great. It can get very hot so keep the brightness down!

Texture quality: Medium
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit framerate: On
Airplane count: Medium
GeekBench Scores: 661 / 1814
Notes: This is not the best device to buy if you are looking for fast, max settings performance. If you are looking for a cheap and reliable tablet and you are a person that likes to fly in and out of not busy airports, this is the appropriate device


Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 - @Flying_Ryan

OS: Android 8.1 Oreo
Hardware: N/A Quad Core, 1.5GB

iPhones

For iPads and iPhones, the same is also advised. Be warned that iPads in particular heat up considerably so look at cooling options before beginning a long flight

I’ll add in new devices as time goes on, so we can keep the thread updated. I’ve added in a few new devices and altered a few others (if an iPad air 2 struggles to run IF, an iPad air 1 definitely can’t…)
General Questions about Devices can also be asked and answered here. Have fun

Revision 19.1 is finally here! The eager eyed out here may notice the differences from the previous version. If not, here you go;

  • Removed old graphics settings, updating it with the new rendering quality. Many of these are not spot on, so please correct me where wrong
  • Hardware section lists the processor used and how much RAM each device has.
  • Each device now links you to the necessary GSMArena page, where you can see a full in depth breakdown listing specifications and reviews.
  • Usernames are now moved into the device section to keep everything tidier.
  • I’ve updated the operating systems and geek bench sores where necessary, again please correct me if I’m wrong

As always, a massive thanks to the community members out there with their names on this post, to everyone that links it in #support, and to my trusted regulars updating this thread. It would never have gotten as successful without you all :)

I can never get over the way you format these posts <3. Bookmarked!

Yeah, I spent days trying to fix this on my phone and decided to wait until my new PC was built and running. Trust me, having dual monitors made this so much easier to get finished 😆

I posted the S10+ on the old thread

From the old thread.
Could this be added as a top notch device. Thank you.


Device : Honor view 20
OS : Android 9.0
Rendering Quality : High
Rendering Resolution : High
Texture Quality : High
Anti-Aliasing : On
Limit Framerate : Off
Airplane Count : Very High
GeekBench Scores : 3343, 9932
Antutu Benchmark scores : 305,599
Notes : It costs £499 for the 6gb ram and 128gb storage version which I am currently using. It utilises the kirin 980 chip which can be found on other powerful phones like the mate 20 Pro and can be compared to the s10s snapdragon 855. It was also the first phone to use the new pin hole camera technology just like the samsung s10 where the display takes up most of the screen. In terms of infinite flight and gaming in general, it runs flawlessly with no lag whatsoever. It will never get warm or hot during gaming due to its built in liquid cooling.

Yes, primarily because it didn’t fit the formatting, and also because I have to keep the notes shorter as I’m close to the character limit.
The important parts are the same, quoted from my external website where needed.

Ive updated it a bit. This is more accurate:

OS : Android 9.0 Pie
Hardware Kirin 980, 6GB
Rendering Quality : Ludicrous
Texture quality : High
Anti-Aliasing : On
Limit framerate : Off
Airplane count : Very High
GeekBench Scores : 3343 / 9932
Notes : A quite powerful phone for a reasonably low price . Runs the simulator very well. Will hardly get warm due to to its neat cooling system.

Just take down my device as a whole. Id rather have it on there with accurate information from personal experience as i own the device instead of you making it up.

For those who are in France and do not want to spend too much on a phone, I propose: SAMSUNG GALAXIE S7 where the ASUS ZENPHONE 4 MAX PLUS.

Out of the 2, I’d take the Samsung Galaxy S7. Whilst the ZenFone has a low and affordable price, plus a 5000mAh (5000mAh!!) Battery, it is in no way a performance rival to the Galaxy S7.
I’d expect the ZenFone to run on the lowest setting based on experience with similar devices. Though if you’re on a budget, I can’t exactly knock it for a value device 🙃

What is the graphics settings of the s8+ ?

Does anyone know if the Xiaomi redmi Note 7 works with pretty high graphics for IF? :)

OnePlus5t

SL500_AC_SS350

OS: Android 9.0 Pie / Oxygen OS 9.0.5
Hardware: Snapdragon 835, 8GB RAM, 128GB ROM
Rendering Quality: Best
Texture Quality: High
Anti-Aliasing: On
Limit Framerate: Off
Airplane Count: Very high
GeekBench Scores: 1941 , 6612
Notes: The OnePlus5t packed with 8GB ram can give gamers a great Experience while playing Infinite Flight. After 1 Year of playing Infinite Flight on this phone, it handles Friday Night Flights with no frame rate issues. With the 3500mAh battery gamers can leave the device off charge while doing overnighters and wake up to around 30% when taking off with full battery. This phone Has very quick responces due to the near stock Android with OnePlus Oxygen OS which fixes some known android issues. This phone is a great for a person who wants a flagship Experience on a budget phone.

Ignoring the fact that the iPad Pro’s design is brand new, and easily destroys the Pixel C, great new thread!
However, if the devices are listed chronologically, shouldn’t the iPad Pro 10.5 (2017) & 9.7 go after the 1st Gen iPad Pro? Or is it actually based off of screen sizes first, then releases second?

There isn’t any particular order for the devices if I’m honest. I don’t remember when I first put it together… It does look quite chronological doesn’t it?

I may review this later, but as of right now it’s literally just how it’s fallen together 🤷

If redmi note 5 is listed in medium category than I think so note 7 can also be in same upper series. Check for ur self and compare both phones with processor.
