Android device recommendations
The Samsung J3 (available with 4G or WiFi only) has worked great for us. It runs Android 9 and performs basic tasks with ease. It didn't work in our intended deployment but I still use the devices for testing because its cheap and convenient to keep several in my desk drawer, compared to Honeywell CN80 or other similar full sized handhelds.
Thanks Robert, I think this is the model I've seen recommended before actually. I'll check it out.
