We're often asked what is the best device to use the InventoryBase app on, so this article outlines some of ours and our customers experiences with different devices.
This article will be updated every few months, so check back in the future if you're thinking of purchasing new hardware.
Typically, we would always recommend the latest Apple devices. Apple iOS is as straightforward to use as it is powerful, and we prefer the performance of the app using Apple devices based on our experience.
The following models are recommended in order from oldest to newest for both Smartphone and Tablet categories.
iPhone 12 / Pro / Max
iPhone 13 / Pro / Max
iPhone 14 / Pro / Max
iPad 10th Generation
iPad Pro M2
iPad Mini 6th Generation 2021
iPad Air M1
There is a considerably larger variety of Android devices on the market that would be suitable enough for basic use of the App (shorter, less detailed reports with less than 100 photos). For more demanding use of the app (large detailed reports with hundreds or even thousands of photos, audio and/or video) we recommend newer, more expensive devices.
Unlike Apple, Android devices rely more on the device specs to offer good performance. We recommend devices with at least 4GB of ram and 2ghz processor. You would expect to be paying at least £400 for these devices new.
Google Pixel 7 / Pro
Samsung S22 / Plus
OnePlus 10 Pro
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8
Lenovo Tab P12 Pro
As there are so many devices using Android we can't comment on every one, however any device with at least 6GB ram and an 10MP camera should provide reasonable performance and quality.
