Hello!

Some time ago, I got myself the Pocket 2 Creator Combo. I was excited about the possibilities about using the camera with my phone, as the Do-it-all-handle was included with the combo. I was hopeful about using my phone to wirelessly control the gimbal, as my phone successfully ran DJI Mimo. BUT! What DJI didn't tell us is that NOT ALL versions of DJI Mimo work with Pocket 2. My current phone only runs an outdated version of the program that refuses to recognise Pocket 2. It was a disappointing observation, as you need a compatible phone to even enable the basic functionalities of the camera (why on earth is there an activation required, I have never heard that any other camera would have required it for just being able to use it!). I finally managed to activate it, as my friend (luckily enough) has a phone that is compatible with the Pocket 2 and kindly lended it for me so I could activate it. Luckily, it can be used independently after that, but I still miss the abilities that having a compatible phone would let me use.

I personally think DJI hasn't done well enough to inform the buyer about which phones are compatible with Pocket 2. The Pocket 2 product page itself does no state clearly enough that only some select phone models are compatible with it - the information is hidden on the Mimo app page. And even that information is lacking, as: A) even after mentioning the Android version and USB connector type, they don't mention that those are not the only requirements for the camera to work with the phone, B) even some Micro USB phones work when using the proper adapter, and C) the list of the compatible phones is ridiculously small, considering there are literally thousands of Android devices - mentioning just a bit over 30 models (some of which are not even available new anymore) is only a minor fragment of that amount.

While I do understand that they can't just go and buy each and every model separately, I still think they should be able to define the system requirements in a more specific manner (through emulation testing etc.). But as it seems that they are unable to do that, I suggest that we collect our own test results here for users to make it easier to find out which phones work with the Pocket 2 and which do not.

So if you have tested DJI Pocket 2 with a phone other than one of phones listed in DJI Mimo's page, please reply to this thread and tell others what were your results with the phone.

For those looking to use a tablet with DJI Pocket 2, there is a sister thread for them. To see if your tablet is compatible or to report test results of your tablet, see https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=237518

To see the official DJI list of supported phone models, see https://www.dji.com/fi/downloads/djiapp/dji-mimo


Update: If you test a phone model and don't seem to get it to work, try these quick fixes first:
#1 - Make sure you have downloaded the Mimo app from DJI's own website ( https://www.dji.com/fi/downloads/djiapp/dji-mimo ) instead of Google Play Store if you are using Android. According to some sources, the Google Play Store version is outdated and the app should now be downloaded and updated by DJI's own site. You may also have to uninstall the previous version before installing the version from Mimo's own website. To see further information, see this thread: https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=242211

#2 - Check the wireless network frequency setting of your Mimo app settings. Some devices use 2,4 GhZ, others use 5.8 GhZ. If the Auto setting or one of the specific frequency settings doesn't work, try the other one. To see more about this issue, see the threads at https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=229629 and https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=247715 . Be sure to restart the Mimo app in order to the changed setting to take place! Also, if your version of Mimo app doesn't have the frequency setting, see if you can get an earlier version of Mimo app, install it, change the frequency there then reinstall or update to the newer version.

#3 - Sometimes problems may occur due to an physically or  communicatively unstable connection between the Pocket 2 and the phone.  On some occasions, using a protective case can prevent the connector  from going as far as required, or it's possible magnetic shielding can  disrupt the communication between the two devices, thus causing errors;  on other cases, without the protective case  there might be a gap between the phone and Pocket 2 that makes the  connection wobbly and causes communication errors, while using with the  case stabilizes the camera to the phone by filling up the gap and fixes  the issue. If you have problems with a protective case, try removing it  and try again. Also, vise versa: if the connection is erratic without a  case, try putting the phone into one and try again. One more possible fix: If you have a phone clip (either the official DJI one or one of the third-party ones), try using that with the phone and Pocket 2 and see if that helps.

#4 - Ensure you have updated the phone operating system to the required version. The Mimo app requires at least Android 7.0, or iOS 11.0 for the Apple devices. There have also been reports of Mimo not working on Android 11 and 12, so they may not necessarily work, or you might need a certain version of the Mimo app for it to work. (UPDATE: A DJI representative has officially stated that Mimo version 1.5.4 is not compatible with Android 12, so if you are using that version of Android, make sure you have a newer version of Mimo.)

#5 - If possible, see if you can rule out the possibility of having a faulty USB-C or Lightning adapter by using the same adapter on a different, compatibility-tested phone or tablet. If the connection works with the same adapter on another phone or tablet, it confirms that the adapter is working. If not, it could be that the adapter itself is faulty.

#6 - Sometimes, the phone may have power-saving options that interfere with the connection between the Pocket 2 and the phone. If you have power-saving options on, try disabling them and connecting again to see if that makes any difference.

#7 - If you are attempting to connect the Pocket 2 wirelessly to your phone and your device is not found, make sure you have enabled both  Bluetooth and wifi on your phone. The Mimo app needs both for wireless  connection to Pocket 2 (the Bluetooth for finding the nearby devices,  and the wifi for rest of the operations).

#8 - If you can't establish a connection through the main physical connection of the Pocket 2, try using a USB-C to USB-A adapter, connect your phone's data cable to that adapter and then connect them to the bottom USB-C port of the Pocket 2. Also, you may want to try using a straight USB-C to Micro-USB cable if you have one. Some models may not work using the 'basic' connector, but may work when used with these adapters and USB ports.

#9 - If connecting physically, make sure the connections aren't bent or dirty. If they are, there might be communication errors between the Pocket 2 and the other device.

#10 - If your device uses VPN for network connection, try disabling that and connecting again. There have been reports of VPN disrupting the connection between the phone and the Pocket 2 that were solved when the VPN was disabled.


LIST STYLING UPDATE: From now on, the list styling will be changed. The phones will be categorized according to the manufacturers instead of  the Working-Not working, division. Each phone mentioned under these  will be marked with a OFFICIAL, YES or NO and color-coded accordingly to show  whether the model will work with the Pocket 2  or not. Also, the release date of the model is mentioned (when available) to distinguish similarly-named models from different years and to also gather data for a so-called Breaking Point- theory, the thought of being that there is a certain point where later models of the same model series will all be compatible after the first compatible model in the model series. While not confirmed nor debunked at the moment, gathering this information will show if the theory applies or not. This hopefully helps users to find their device faster to see  whether it can be used for the activation process and/or remote control.  Special thanks to username Defleur for inspiring this new listing  style!

KEY:
OFFICIAL - The phone is officially mentioned on the DJI's own compatibility list and will work with the Pocket 2.
YES - The phone completely or partially works with the Pocket 2 and can be used to activate and/or control the Pocket 2.

NO - The phone doesn't work with the Pocket 2.

And now for the list itself:

My Samsung A1 didn't seem to pick the camera up, though I just tried once because my wife's Huawei y9 2019 did work. However, even though we got it to activate and update, the phone didn't seem to want to show the camera view.
We used a usb-a to usb-c adapter.

So I assume you mean that your wife's Huawei works perfectly, but your Samsung only has a partial support?

If I had a similar problem, I'd try if updating the Do-it-all handle would fix the issue, as the components have separate firmware updates. But that doesn't of course help if it occurred after updating the handle. If that is the case, I'd probably contact customer service.

Aaand just to make things even more confusing: A user known as manmikey has reported that while he didn't manage to activate the camera using a phone model marked as compatible on the official DJI list (Huawei P30 Pro), he did manage to do that using a phone not mentioned on that list (Google Pixel XL). Read more about his post here: https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=230828

Sure hope it's just a faulty unit on his side and not a case of DJI's engineers not knowing even themselves what does work and what doesn't...

To see the official list of working phones, see https://www.dji.com/fi/downloads/djiapp/dji-mimo(Though according to manmikey's post, even this looks like it should be taken with a grain of salt!)

Edit: According to Ciscomonk, he has started to have problems with connection using Iphone 11 that SHOULD be compatible according to the official DJI list. And in the same thread, another user known as igholter has said his Iphone 8 (which, again, should be one of the supported models) can't be connected to Pocket 2. Have they started to break compatibility with previously supported phones?!? See the post at https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=235507

The Galaxy J7 Crown does NOT work; and this whole thing is pi$$ing me off. I'm about ready to just send it back for a refund and get a GoPro instead.

I never saw anywhere prior to purchase you had to have a specific phone to activate the camera (or any phone to activate it). Wasn't until I couldn't get it to work that I started googling activation issues and found the problem. It then took me two weeks to find a friend that both had the right type of phone and the time to let me activate the camera.

But now that it's activated my phone won't even connect wirelessly. I've tried two different versions of the APP and get the following error both times:

First of all, thank you for sharing your experience. It will help others to avoid the same pitfall. Also, it is important to express the dissatisfaction for them. Thing's won't get fixed if we just keep quiet.

I feel your pain. I am extremely frustrated about this very same issue, though I have a different phone. Before buying, I thought that being able to run DJI Mimo on my phone would be enough to ensure compatibility with my phone. But NO! Never did they state anywhere that you need a VERY SPECIFIC version of the app to be able to use the whole darn thing.

I am very displeased about this issue. Almost feel like I should ask them to send a compatible phone for me! And, reading the forums more, even with the right phone, right Android version, right USB-C connector, right Mimo version - you still might not get it to work.

So get testing DJI, I feel frustrated that I have to do the work for you (with my list). AND MAKE CLEAR ON YOUR STORE PAGE THAT YOU NEED THESE SPECIFICS JUST TO USE THE CAMERA!!!

If they won't listen, then we'll have to vote with our wallets. Luckily, there are alternatives on the market.

This thread now has a sister thread for those who want to see tablet compatibility instead of phones. To see the list, check out https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=237518

Also, it seems like there was an error with the last message's official DJI list link. To see the official list, check https://www.dji.com/fi/downloads/djiapp/dji-mimo

Report updates for both the tablet and phone lists are more than welcome, so please participate :-)

I would appreciate it if anyone has tried a Samsung Galaxy A01 could share the results? I will try it myself in the future if nobody has an answer.

Galaxy A01 /No, after all updates, still no. Wirless or Usb C. Hope I can find one that does in that price range. It was around 60 after tax.

Thank you for your input. Wishing to find something compatible in a similar price range, too.

Thank you for your input, interesting to see that it works despite being "old" when compared to Pocket 2.

Thanks for all the work you have put into this mess HGDC84. I realy was looking forward to makimg some nice videos with the pocket 2. Sad to say I have returned mine. After going to every store in town, looking for the cheapest on the list of working smartphones (around 100.00,) to find none in stock. I could get them refurbished for around 75.00, and wait another week or so, then maybe be able to use my new purchase, already had to returned the Samsung A10E. I will have my new gp9 with the 540.00 refund, before any refurbish smartphone could get to me. If I had the latest smartphone, why would I by a Pocket 2. I would just buy a gimbel. Thanks again, sorry to rant. Hope DJI reads this, doubt I will use this company again or recomend. Will give you props and mention your work on my pocket 2 review.

Thanks for all the work you have put into this mess HGDC84. I realy was looking forward to makimg some nice videos with the pocket 2. Sad to say I have returned mine. After going to every store in town, looking for the cheapest on the list of working smartphones (around 100.00,) to find none in stock. I could get them refurbished for around 75.00, and wait another week or so, then maybe be able to use my new purchase, already had to returned the Samsung A10E.

First of all, thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I'd like to state though that this is not only my doing - I just was the guy who thought out this kind of list could be handy. The guys who really do the job and should be thanked for are the ones who have given the time and effort to test their phones with the camera and report their results here - guys like you :-) If no one else had taken part here, my list would still consist of only four phones. So it's all of us together for this one :-)

And no need to apologize me for your valid complaints. Many of us have gone through the same, frustrating process. For many, the same struggle is still going on. Don't think anybody has been exactly happy for finding out they need to get a new phone as well. I think the ones who should apologize are the DJI guys for not making these requirements clear enough.

I'd like to see your review after you have released it. Where and when will it be published? :-)

I just bought the P2 and I have the Samsung S7 Edge. I had to order a Micro USB adapter from Amazon. I finally got the P2 to connect to my cellphone and activated it and downloaded the updates, but whenever I try out the camera connection the video on the camera is non responsive. I only see half a frame and it won't follow the gimble when I move the P2. Therefore I'm saying the Samsung S7 Edge does not work with the P2.
I'm going to revise my statement above. I did get it to work wirelessly, the picture is great in both the video and still pic mode. So as far as working with an adapter, its a no. but working wirelessly, it a yes.
