Only want to playtest with players on "high-performance" Android devices? Want device performance equivalent to the Samsung Galaxy S7 or higher?

It's possible to run a playtest with only high-performance Android devices, such as the Samsung S20 or higher, by requesting it during the playtest order process. This high-performance definition includes Android tablets with performance equivalent to the Samsung S20 or higher.

Note: There is an additional cost of 50% per player for higher performance Android devices.

The default minimum for Android devices is an Android device running Android 5.0 or higher. If devices running Android 5.0 or higher is an acceptable minimum baseline for Android performance, you don't need to specify anything further – as Android 5.0 devices will be the lowest performance devices considered for a playtest.

How to request high-performance Android devices for a playtest

  • Begin by setting up your playtest like any other playtest.

  • Set up tasks, demographics, and everything else like you want.

  • Once you reach the Optional: add custom target audience description section of the playtest order form, click on No, add custom target audience description. (The default here is Yes)

  • Once you're in the text field, enter your request in the free text field, as seen in the screenshot below:

The most important part here is the special request. By selecting No, add custom target audience description – your order will not automatically begin, and we will read your message before starting the playtest.

What happens now?

We'll manually configure the playtest based on your special request.

Note: If we're unable to satisfy your device request, we'll reach out to you directly to clarify next steps.
