Android Question [SOLVED] Do I need an Android 7.x reference phone?


Licensed User
I've got a couple of 6.x phones, and a 8.1 phone. But not a single 7.x phone. Do I need one? Are there things that make a real difference for us so it warrants getting one? And if the answer is yes, does it matter if it's a 7.0 or 7.1?

(They are very cheap, so the money isn't an issue.)

for testing u can use the device emulator, but emulators are not really the same as real hardware.
if u have a device with 7.x be aware that other manufacturer have a different modified os.
testing at least 4,5,6,7,8 os is very time expensive.
tablet and phone behave also different.

about 7.0 or 7.1
guess that 7 had bugs and 7.1 was the better version.
so a app can have trouble at 7 and at 7.1 it runs well.

from past every big change in number had a new surprise os manner.
