I would like to know what is the best smartphone to use with the ARCGIS Collector app.

We are working in the field and we need the best option for battery life, durability of the phone ,speed of data loading; internal GPS and position results; hardware toughness,Camera.


I realize the options are endless.

Interested in comparison between smartphones (Samsung, Xiaomi, LG and more) Pros and Cons.


Thank you.

Don't get to excited about GPS locations with a phone. Your not going to get professional GPS results with a phone. Just close to your location results.

Look up phone stats to determine battery life etc.  

Our office settled on iPhone and all of our field crews use iPhone 6 or 7 and some 8's are starting to roll out.

I have a Google Pixel 2 (not a company phone) and it has remarkable battery life.
