    Not an iPhone exclusive, It's only available if you have the budget for an iPhone 6. Wait, no- Sorry, I mean an iPhone 5s, because an iPhone 5c is SO much more lowly than a model that is a few months newer than it.

    The Sims Mobile, Now Available- Free To Play!*

    *Only after one easy payment of 10,000 dollars for a new iPhone.

    @Yelleb do you have enough space on your phone? I run the game perfectly fine on a Samsung Galaxy S7.

    I have 8.5GB free. How heavy is this freaking game?

    I checked again today. If I Google Sims Mobile Google Play Store a link will come up to download it and if you tap that it says nothing is found. It's still not showing up in the Play Store for me if you search there. A link through EA asks for a mobile phone number but it I want to put it on a tablet so that won't work either.

    Huh, it didn't ask for a mobile number for me. The only reason I have it on my wishlist in the Google play store is from the ea site.

    Same thing here not compatible with my Samsung tab e
  • CoreyblakeCoreyblake Posts: 118 Member
    It will most likely only run on the high end devices. I'm not complaining because older generations will limit a games expansion.

    I have a Samsung tab a and the reason it is not compatible and many others is because of the resolution. I side loaded it with Aptoide and it plays just fine but it is pixelated as the max resolution is not what ea wants it is B's that play store limits people even if it can be played like on the tab a just because resolution is not high enough to be crisp. I am almost sure most of u r running into that and hopefully ea will fix that

    Except some people's problem is resolution nothing more. My pad is only 1 year old it's only issue is resolution. Ea should release a lower res version like Sims free play which looks great on my par. I don't get why everyone is pushing 4k resolution when only a few people even have that setup anyways.

    If I Google Sims Mobile on my tablet one site says The Sims Mobile Google Play. I tap that and get "Item Not Found Retry" At the same place there is a button that says install and that also produces "Item Not Found Retry." There's another one at EA.com>games>the-sims-mobile and that's the one that asks for phone number, country and birthday.

    It's not resolution. It's RAM and your devices processing speed.

    I have a brand new Galaxy S7 and the graphics look horrendous on it. :|

    Would it work on a Samsung Sky phone (I believe J3 but i might be wrong)? I can't find it in the app store anywhere.

    It has everything to do with it. That's why the resolution is bad :neutral:

    You obviously have no clue about the Samsung tab a it's only negative tech problem was it's horrible resolution which is 768x1024 it is running a 1.2 quad core so don't tell me it's anything but the resolution

    I have much of an idea... the tab A Is a low end device.

    And performance is what packs the resolution.

    @PHOEBESMOM601 If you look at https://versus.com/en/qualcomm-adreno-304-vs-qualcomm-adreno-330-450mhz then you can see that your GPU is inferior to the Adreno 330 which EA mentioned as minimum.

    Also your CPU is only an entry level CPU for mobile phones and tablets according to https://www.notebookcheck.net/Qualcomm-Snapdragon-212-APQ8009-SoC-Benchmarks-and-Specs.169859.0.html So your tablet is either too old or too cheap.

    Yeah I just spent about 200, two years ago to basically watch videos and play "time killer" games. I have my gaming laptop for games. I had just never run into the situation I was finding in the play store. I'm curious about SM but not curious enough to replace a perfectly serviceable tablet.

    Could you try the suggestions of Mai in this post: answers.ea. com/t5/Technical-Issues/Info-Compatibility-on-Android-devices/td-p/6678650

    I've been playing on my iOS but my android is running 6.0.1. It wasn't compatible so I got it from APKPure. But then it didn't save my progress. I don't think it is out fully on Android until March 21st. EA.com has a "BE THE FIRST TO PLAY THE SIMS MOBILE!" where you can sign up but then you still aren't able to download from the play store. I also tried playing on NOX with the apk and it never loaded. I hope everyone gets to play soon :smile:
  • CoreyblakeCoreyblake Posts: 118 Member
    Not compatible means your phone is not able to play the game at the desired performance. There will be updates and the size of the game will grow. Stop being a dunce please. Anybody should know what that means.
