Syncthing Android compatibility list


I often come along user reports saying make and model with Android “X” is working well, with some limitations or not at all. This thread is to invite you share your experience with other users in a brief way. Please don’t “discuss” in here. (Sounds weird, yes)

Kind regards Catfriend1


Xiaomi Mi8 Android 8.1.0, 9.0 : Working well without limitations

LG G4 Android 7.1.2 LineageOS : Working well with little SDCard limitations, can be bypassed using root

Moto X Play (lux) : unrooted LineAgeOS Android 8.0 : Working well with little SDCard limitations

Huawei P10 Android 8.1.0 : Needs to use static IP addresses to wake the network adapter instead of local discovery only. So working with limitations.

Nexus 5X running Android 8.1.0 LineageOS: All is fine, has no sdcard (Nexus devices don’t have a slot).

Xperia Z5 running Android 7.1.2 LineageOS: All is fine, reading & writing from to sdcard works with root. Haven’t tried what happens without root.

Pixel 2 XL running Android Q Beta 4: Official version wasn’t working because of the TLS alignment issue. I switched to @Catfriend1’s fork, no issues since then.

Galaxy S5 Model SM-G9001: Android 6.0.1: syncthing 1.1.4: often gets into a state where it flat refuses to sync anything in either direction (to 2 linux boxes) without restarting syncthing. Big battery drain - battery usage shows syncthing at 6% - biggest drain on the phone. sdcard would not work last time I looked.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo: Android 4.4.2, AppV 1.2.0-rc.1 - sometimes process “loosens” away from the wrapper process and stays running even if app is force closed. Rebooting the phone is necessary. Beside that, all okay.
