I'm looking to buy a budget phone which has a 480x854 screen resolution. While Googling for Pokemon Go's requirements, all I see is that a minimum resolution of 720p is recommended, but I couldn't find any minimum required.

Will Pokemon Go work in such a small screen? The phone is an Asus ZB452KG with Android 4.4 and a quad core CPU, so I'm only worried about the screen.

  • From what I can see, that phone doesn't have a gyroscope. If I'm not mistaken, that means it won't support Pokémon Go, regardless of screen resolution.

    The game should still work with augmented reality mode switched off in settings, even without a gyroscope. Jul 17, 2016 at 19:01

There is no resolution requirement for Pokémon GO, it should work fine on your phone.

As Nolonar pointed out, the phone doesn't have a gyroscope in it, however the app should still run fine with the augmented reality mode switched of in settings.


My screen is 480p and works fine. Just some lag but that's because my phone is just cheap in general.

Should still work.
