Hi, I am sorry for the trouble that the DJI Fly has caused. upon checking Samsung A3 is not yet listed as a recommended mobile device for the DJI Mavic Mini and with the DJI Fly application. The said mobile device may work however we can't guarantee the stability of the said unit since it is not yet tested by DJI. For additional reference I will be posting a link ( https://www.dji.com/dji-fly#download ) where in we can check the list of the compatible devices for the DJI Mavic Mini and for the DJI Fly application. Thank you.

So you guys want to sell new drones or just want to sell the phones in your list?

5 months later... DJI seems to have done nothing to resolve that problem.  So the choices are: buy an expensive drone, run DJI Go and use a cheap phone/table OR buy a cheap drone run DJI Fly and be forced to use a phone/tablet that is worth more than the drone itself...

First of all your mobile is not supported by the Fly App, why wouldnt you check it out before purchasing to avoid such a situation. The spec's on that phone are low-medium so it bound to have issues.  
And im using the recomended phone and still having issues, these things do happen when ever a new product is released. Just give them time it will be resolved.

Oh cmon man... as if that’s something every person should know.  Get off your “know it all” high horse as if your somehow smarter than the rest of humanity.  It’s a given, in this day and age things should just work.  There’s no godly reason someone should have to “check to see if my phone is 64 bit compatible”.  We didn’t all nerd out in the 80s like you, man.

DJI gets a triple thumbs down. I'm an engineer...no problem understanding technical specs. Wanted to be sure my phone was compatible before I bought a Mavic Mini.  Checked their website: "Name:
DJI Fly. Required Operating System: iOS v10.0 or later, Android v6.0 or later." My phone runs Android v7.0 so I thought I was good. Made the purchase. And of course the app "is not compatible." Emailed DJI support and got this canned answer: "Following the County of Los Angeles "Safer at Home Order For Control of COVID-19" and the Executive Order from the State of California to stay at home, and in following the guidance on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 from the California Department of Public Health, we regret to inform you that we have decided to minimize our repair operations in California. Some product repairs and shipment times are expected to be delayed or suspended. Thank you for your understanding and support." Called their telephone help line the next day. Waited 45 minutes. Finally a guy who can barely speak English evades all responsibility. Wants to blame it on me. Won't admit the website is wrong and misleading. Has no solution other than for me to purchase a new phone. Chinese company; TERRIBLE.

On the packaging, "Made for Iphone", it means that it was not made for Android, note that updates are made available for the iOS system first. But the number of users with the Android system is very large and the Android application must exist, so the "iOS" and "Android" logos appear with the respective QR code for the respective application.
The big problem is that DJI must explain that, for Android, the application works only with the 64-bit Android system, no matter if the device has a 64-bit processor, if the Android system is 32-bit (like Samsung J7, A10, A20 etc.) they only run a 32-bit application.
I know friends all over the world, various groups of users on a social network where many people have tested and put their devices on the list of "which ones work" and "which ones do not" DJI Fly and I can say that this list is much bigger than the official list from DJI. An example is the excellent blog "Cult of Drone, by Steve XU, I recommend reading mainly the technical details.
I, as an example, use a Motorola G7 plus, which works with Android 9 and even updated to Android 10, works perfectly: this is due to having 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of memory and Android 10.

Hugs for all

I bought Mavic Mini and can't install Dji-Fly app on my Galaxy Note Edge :/ My android version is 6.0.1 and this cover "Android 6 and later", but when try to install I get "App not installed". May be the reason is that "32bit not compatible"? This is not serious! DJI, please recompile this app for 32bit OS. It no sense to buy drone for $500 and phone for another $500

Buy a huawei. Cheap an compatible

Wow! I can count myself... Err... Lucky?

I have a pile of cash in front of me to go to the shop tomorrow and buy my first DJI drone. I bought a new phone last month  so thought there would be no problem.  Boy was I wrong!

I'm sorry DJI! You could have had £500 of my UK pounds tomorrow morning,  but since I'm not going to buy two phones in two months, you have cost yourself yet another customer.

Just a ridiculous and very costly business decision! I would have been a new customer.  Now I will never be one!

Thanks for nothing.

I have a mavic mini and a phatom 3 standard, are almost the same.. I can't undertand why you need a 64bits phone to use the app... I think DJi must do something about this.. I have a Moto g4 running with Android 7.0 which I use for my drones, I don't like to use my personal phone it's not a toy.. I prefer to have a second phone.. Unfortunaly I can't do that...

Maybe they should support 8-bit flip phones also?  Buy a used iPhone7+ or similar without a SIM or any cell plan and use it as your controller phone.  Tether to your old phone with Bluetooth for Google Maps during flight, problem solved.

OMG .. i ordered a Mavic mini and i will get it in a few hours and a i just found out about this issue ....  My phone is a Motorola G7 Power with Android 10  .. not in the supported list.   
i downloaded CPU-Z and in the system section its says Kernel Architecture : aarch64     .. so looks like im 64 bits.   I downloaded the DJI fly app and installed just fine ...
Now im just hoping that it will work just fine with no app crash .. will fly real low for the first flights to see if it's stable.    But i agree .. kinda stupid to not support 32 bit.  
i originaly wanted to use my Lenevo Tablet but no ...

If DJI Fly is installed and started, then most likely everything will work.


Personally, I do not understand the crying about not being compatible with smatphone at the moment, which prevents people from installing the app on their smartphone before buying and trying it out!

Well said sir. My brother sells the Mini through his business and he like all of us only became aware after the fly App was released weeks after masses of people had pre ordered the drone and paid for it. From my asking questions I think most were buying the drone because it was a way to introduce children with an additional cheaper phone to the hobby. My child always wants to fly my drones but because it is essential for work I did not want to risk it and I thought the same. It is still wrapped up waiting to be an Xmas present but the phone debacle makes me feel this is not going to happen. No way am I forking out five hundred quid for a phone for a child when I already have two newish ( 2017 - 2019 ) phones that were expensive and have the requirements DJI ask but still do not work. I think DJI's inability to speak to the public or at least release an official statement kinda says what the company see's us as. The fan boys are certainly not willing to stand behind those having issues and the You Tube media won't ask the searching questions tell me its all about the cash. We are just plebs.

Sorry for such a long delay. I haven't been frequenting the forums for a while. As I had mentioned before I cancelled my order for the mini. I later purchased a Mavic Air 2 which I thoroughly enjoy. I ran into an issue with it also in that I couldn't utilize all the features of it, again, because of my phone. I finally went out and found an unlocked, refurbished Galaxy S8+ for $175. I only use it for flying my Spark and the Air 2; no phone service. It works great and I'm happy. I found several Galaxy phones on both Amazon and eBay. You might want to try there and pick up a deal.

I just received the drone and was really disappointed to have this issue. I have an Samsung 8 edge running Android 9 and the app won't install. I really hope on works on the s10 when it gets back from the shop.

I'm using a refurbed Samsung Galaxy S8+ with Android 9. Works extremely well. Check out Amazon or eBay. You can find a refurbed one very cheap.

You made a good drone whit lots of possibilitys and it be recommend by several users on there youtube vids. Nobody speaks about the recommended phones you can use. So if you  buy one air2 and got it home and need a phone who be in the expensive range it simple sucks. Because dji give you whit your drone the rc for phones whit it and also in there manual be not written ore even on there own vids about how easy and good there drone be. So yeah it be a disappointed you cannot use your phone and need to investigate in a new one. Ore do they want that whe buy the smart rc?  I found it also a sort of misleading advertisement. Also i hear nobody from dji give some support comment about in future it be a solution for. Yes i love this drone and i hVe the luck have a samsung s10 but indeed mine nokia 5 dos not can use the app..

Same for me - pre-ordered and did not see anything from DJI about phone compatibility, except for the expected "Android 6 and later". Only when I went to install DJI Fly, after I got the drone (why would I install before?) did I find that it's incompatible with my Moto G 5 Plus - a recent, decent, midrange phone. It did however install on my Guophone 6800, a low-end phone with 2gb of RAM that's not on the COMPATIBLE list. I haven't flown with it, it may yet fail... if it does I'll be buying a new phone - taking the price of the drone from reasonable to expensive.

DJI should have made this information more prominent

I have the G5G plus and that works

There are many phones and tablets out there that are not on that official list yet works perfectly fine running the Fly app.
Some phone I have tested have worse CPU spec than the worst one on that official list, yet performs just fine.
That official list is by no means complete and many people do have expectation that their phones would work with the app even though their phones are not on that list.

The reason your Moto G5 Plus failed to install the Fly app is because that phone although is 64-bit in hardware, the OS it runs is only 32-bit.
If you can get 64-bit OS on your Moto G5 Plus, you should be able to install the Fly app.

The thing that really sucks about this whole DJI Fly app fiasco is I've checked every "compatible" model on the list and my service provider doesn't support any of them except the Samsung S10 models which run from $450 - $700! As for the rest of the models - half of them I've never even heard of. I guess I'll have to cancel my order since I'm not going to pay $500 for a combo package just to find out I can't fly farther than my own back yard.

DJI, you really need to get your act together.

There are plenty of phones and tablets out there that work with the Fly app even though they are not listed in the official list.
You just need to check to see if your phone is running 64-bit android version 6 or above.
That's not that hard.

Salutations and commiserations for the troubles you are having with running DJI Fly. I had to buy a new phone but it's far from being a flagship anything. It's a cheap as chips Huawei Honor 8x for the princely sum of $248 CA, which converts to about $3:50 US.

I've gotta say, I'm amazed at the quality and performance for such a cheap phone. 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, expandable to 464GB with a MicroSD card. It's working brilliantly with my Mini.

so do the Huawei p smart 2019 and the Huawei MediaPad T5, no issues whatsoever

I don't believe the Xiaomi Redmi S2 has a full 64bit infrastructure it looks like it only has a 32bit operating system.
Unfortunately Dji Fly requires a full 64bit infrastructure and operating system that is why it's not installing.

I personally purchased mine BEFORE any such list was made public. All that was given was for your phone to have "Android 6.0 or later".

Absolute garbage, there is no checks to ensure your Mobile phones are compatible (Androids).  Maybe the marketing team should say "great drone but you may need a new phone"...absolute bonkers user experience from the beginning.
