Currently using a Moto G5 running Android 8.1.0 to collect car data from an OBD dongle via EV Notify, send it up to the cloud, and then use the ABRP app.

Frequently crashing so I wonder if the phone isn’t up to it? If I use the Android to only collect the data, ABRP works fine on my iPhone and doesn’t crash which is why I think I might be over taxing my old Android?
if the phone is the weak link, which specs phone would you recommend bearing in mind this phone is not my main phone. It will only be used for this so don’t want to spend too much.

if you think the phone specs are ok On my Moto G5, I’ll try a re-install of Android (I assume you can do that like iOS?).

The G5 is pretty old now and will struggle with a number of apps, not just the one you're using.

Take a look for something that runs the Android One program. They usually have fair specs, and from memory, around 3 years of guaranteed updates. Prices aren't terrible for a mid range one.

I only recently got rid of my Nokia 7.1 Which was part of Android One, and even now there wasn't any noticeable signs of slow downs. I only upgraded as the battery was getting weak after having it since release and regularly fast charging the thing.
