check your unsupported devices

Over Christmas my brother had a new Samsung tab 3 8.0 and I wanted to show him my new app but it was filtered out by Google. I went to unsupported devices in the console and sure enough there it was, along with many others.

I had to add <uses-feature android:name=“android.hardware.telephony” android:required=“false”/> and that fixed the problem.

Strange thing is, other apps of mine with identical manifests didn’t filter out the same devices. Still trying to figure out why.

Anyhoo, y’all might want to check your unsupported devices list for each of your apps to see if anything is not right. Specifically, the Samsung devices since they are the most popular by far.
