I'm just about to click the Buy buttom for a Mavic Mini however my past experiences using DJI products with Android made me think I should do a little research here first.
Is there anyone successfullly using a Note 10+ with the Mini?
DJI is also known for having a crippled Android version of their apps that are missing features which are available on iOS. Are there features that are hobbled with Android vs the iPhone version of the DJI Fly app? The app seems to have pretty poor reviews on the Play Store although most people only take the time to post reviews when they're unhappy so it's hard to evaluate.


Any other issues with the Note 10+ or Android in general I should be aware of?

I'd love some input! I don't want a DJI paperweight.

I use a Samsung S10+ (Qualcomm Processor) on Android 10 OS without any issues.  


UPDATE:  Sorry, I should have read closer and then I would have noticed you said Note 10.  I don't have a Note 10 but I also use a Pixel 4XL without issue and it is not on the DJI compatible list. Hopefully, some of the forum members that use a Note 10 will see your post.  Good luck.

Hi. Thank you for reaching out to DJI Forum. With regards to this inquiry. Upon checking the Samsung Note 10+ is not listed on the compatible device lists, it may work but we cannot guarantee the stability and compatibility of the said mobile device during flight. Rest assured that our DJI R&D team are continuously testing multiple mobile devices to be added on the said list in the future. Thank you.

The Note 10 has been out for several months, how is it not on the compatible list yet. This is why DJI has lost my business (and I'm sure many others) for several years now, poor Android support! Might lose my business this time as well if there's not a lot of positive feedback about the Note 10 from your customers in this thread. Lots of people want a drone but don't need a drone. You should realize the potential customers you're losing and/or alienating. Many don't know how poorly you support Android until after purchase (I was one of them) and then you'll lose them as future buyers. Fool me once...

You might think you are lecturing DJI on this subject, but no - this is a user forum, the only DJI people on here are the moderators and all they do is reply with a robotoic answer about passing your comments on to the appropriate department. It is much like a raised middle finger.

And DJI can only write code for their apps based on the Android platform, and the DJI apps are quite complex in what they do compared to the simple apps you are used to. Further more, they cannot ensure compatibility with your Samsung product and in fact Samsung are famous for deviating from the Android rules, making their products difficult to code for.

Why is the Note 10 not on the 'compatibility' list? Probably because DJI tested it and it did not work properly. And finally, DJI cannot write code for the Note 10, they can only write code that is supported on the broad Android framework.

S10 is on the list. It's running the exact same version of the OS that that's on my Note 10. Guess a Mavic Mini is not in my future.

I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ to fly the mavic mini. So far, software-wise, no issues. A few things to note in terms on hardware:

1) The Note 10+ is very wide. So much so it have trouble fitting into the remote and yet get the original cable plugged in. Not impossible but not convenient. Best to buy a 20 or 30 cm cable, hook up the phone with socket exposed BELOW the holder.

2) If you want to use one of those slot in double hooked lanyard, you'll need to push your phone up to hold the metal piece hooks/loops to the remote. However, because of the phone width and the bixby button is on the left (thus on top), You'll frequently accidentally push the bixby button. Also the same problem as no. 1, aiming the cavle to go into the socket through the hole in the remote is hard. To solve this, I just put a piece of foam in to act as a pusher from phone to hook/loop.

3) The phone holder on the remote tend to block access of some buttons on the top left.
