Help for Junk Phone Users (Google Android)

(this is my mobile website)

You can also browse my website on a junk phone (Google Android).

Junk Phone Problem Details

The iPhone, iPod Touch, Google Android devices, and other similar devices can browse this mobile site fine including all audio. For Google phones, only Android 3 and higher will display the website without serious degradation of graphic quality as 2.3 and below don't support anti-aliasing of rounded corners or SVG.

Avoiding Junk Phone Problems

I now recommend Google Android 2.3 and below phone users use Opera Mini instead of the included browser. Everything is made available in standard web pages, PDFs or in iPod and iPhone supported audio formats. PDFs only work on iPhone and iPod Touch and failed to open in the Android 2.1 simulator.

Dealing with Junk Phone Problems

Version 3 or higher of Android appears, to solve the display problems, but I have no way of testing the performance. Only phones coming with version 4.1 and higher (on some devices and definitely not on upgrades to 4.1) have the full functioning desktop web browser Google developed, based on Apple's browser, called Chrome.

Junk Phone Problems Upgrading

Most Android devices, both phone and tablet, are running a variety of version of Android, often several major versions and years behind, usually 2 or 4 point something, and will never be able, to be upgraded, past this point.

Junk Phone Testing: My Main Website

I was able to test the mobile versions of Chrome, Dolphin, Firefox, and Maxthon, on Android 4.2, on the Nexus 7, on a virtual testing service, on the main (pro) website. Surprisingly, Firefox Mobile did the best, by far, and was the only one, with acceptable performance. All of them displayed correctly (even the SVG graphics and all the effects) and the design was antialiased well, on all the browsers. Some of the coloring was a bit off, where it should be.

Junk Phone Testing: My Mobile (this) Website

I was able to test the mobile versions of Chrome, Dolphin, Firefox, and Maxthon, on Android 4.2, on the Nexus 7, on a virtual testing service, on the (this) mobile website. Surprisingly, Firefox Mobile did the best, by far, and was fairly responsive in performance, while Chrome had acceptable performance, whereas the others had barely functional performance. All of them displayed correctly (even all the effects) and the design was antialiased well, on all the browsers. Some of the coloring was a bit off, where it should be.

Solving Your Junk Phone Problems

To get Firefox, Chrome, Dolphin, or Maxthon on your device you will need to find and install them via the Google Play Android online app store.
