Which is the best phone for code app Android?Which phone are you using now?

There are many type of Android phones now?

I want to buy a best phone to code ( i think battery is very important, speed is too)

Which phone you are using now?

And which phone you think is best for code?


i using iPhone 5s…just for fun :smiley:

Good to have two phones, one high end and one very cheap device.

Right now, the best phones are:
Htc One (m8)
Samsung S5
Nexus 5.

but first two are a bit overpriced.
Anyway, most of them will work for you. If you are looking for a cheap, but a nice phone, you can also buy Motorola Moto G (really nice phone, despite its price).

I use Htc One S, that I bought one year and almost half ago.

I think you should have all phones :D.
I use:

  • Samsung galaxy y - very cheap device( still have many users use it). Samsung have many user.
  • HTC Desire- other cheap Device.
  • Nexus 5, Nexus 7. this is a good device to debug, very fast.

vãi bác, nói tiếng việt cho em nhờ cái ạ hahaa

I use both

  • Nexus 5
  • Nexus 7 (2012)
    for everyday coding/debugging. Can’t stand chatty logs from buggy OEM crapware.

For compat testing, I use:

  • HTC Hero (Eclair)
  • Moto Droid (Froyo)
  • Moto Photon (Gingerbread)
  • HTC Evo 4D (Gingerbread)
  • Samsung Galaxy S2 (ICS)
  • XZL Q88 tablet w/Allwinner A13 CPU (uber-cheap chinese tablet w/ICS)
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab3 (Jellybean)

Before major releases I also visit a local electronics store (Best Buy) to test on a variety of newer devices that show up in my logs as being popular.

Nexus are good. Samsung galaxies are more expensive and slower. Those are the only two brands I’ve used

How do you install your apps on phones in phone shops?


  1. Setup a testing google account on the device and install via google play. (remember to delete account from the device when done)


  1. Expose the APK on the web and install from there. I will typically put it in a dropbox public folder and bitly the URL so it is shorter to type. This does involve an extra step of enabling non-market apps but that only takes a few seconds.
