Hello everyone. I'm looking into the DJI Mavic Mini as my first drone. It seems like a really good starter considering its size, weight, and the various features it carries. I am however concerned with the state of the DJI Fly App. From both the forums and online reviews, many people have complained that their phone is not compatible with the app. Currently, the consensus is that you need a 64bit phone for it to work. I have a Moto Z Force, which I confirm does run on 64bit and is at Android 8.0.0. I was also able to download the DJI Fly app. Is there still a chance that my phone will work? The issue is that I've looked up a compatibility list and there are NO Motorola devices that are confirmed to function with the app (in fact, they don't seem to be confirmed for DJI GO either). I'm really not sure about getting the drone because of this. I'm willing to buy the drone, but I'm not willing to buy a new phone along with it.

Also here's the compatibility list I was referring to: https://www.phantomhelp.com/tips/best-tabletsphones-for-dji-go-updated-daily.18
Phone specs: https://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_moto_z_force-8093.php

Do you guys think the DJI Fly App will be updated to fix the issues with all these phones? I do hope so. I want this for Christmas.

Hi. Welcome to DJI Forum and thank you for choosing DJI. As of the moment, the Moto Z Force is not yet tested to work properly with the DJI Mavic Mini and DJI Fly application. But rest assured that our DJI R&D team are continuously testing multiple devices to be added on the recommended mobile device list for the DJI Mavic Mini in the near future. In addition, I will be posting an image for the DJI official compatible mobile devices for the DJI Mavic Mini. Thank you for your support and understanding.

You will not be able to use it with any Android phone as DJI remote battery gets drained extremely fast when you connect any android device to it.  Get any iphone or an ipad mini if you want to be able to use a fully charged remote with more than 1 drone battery at a time - with an android device remote drains completely in 35-45 min.

Noted. I guess I might have to look into Apple devices then. Hope that someone in my family has a spare apple phone they can lend.

you can get a used iphone se for $50-$60 from ebay, shipped. it will do.
i use it now with my pixel 2 - and so far i could not resolve remote`s battery drain issue. phone is from work, so i cannot root it. but i do not think root would fix it, as code from remote sends some unidentified code every time it connects, so it switches usb mode into a default mode that does force charging turned on.

From what I see you could maybe wait it out? DJI Fly is a rather new app so it's still being fixed up by the developers. Perhaps in the future your phone will be compatible. Other than that I don't really know much that can be done other than getting a new phone.

I will be returning my Mavic Mini based on this compatibility fiasco.  I would not recommend it until DJI comes up with some kind of plan to start making rational marketing decisions.
