I love playing Minecraft and I started playing it on my phone four or three years ago. However, I stopped, and now it's 2022 I redownloaded the game. There are so many updates, and I certainly am very outdated in Minecraft.

There is this one thing, too. Minecraft is running very, very slow on my phone. At first I get the red and white 'Mojang' logo (which wasn't red before), then a black screen which lasts for almost 5 minutes. Then I see the Minecraft logo, and it loads for a long time. Then I create a world and it takes approximately 6 or 7 minutes to load.
Is it because my phone is old and can't take the new Minecraft? I don't really know, but it doesn't really matter, as I don't know how to fix it. My only solution is to play Minecraft in my browser. I have heard of 'Minecraft Classic', but when I went there, it just told me I need a keyboard for that. Which means I gotta go to my computer.

But is there any way I can play Minecraft on my browser on the phone?

    Let's start with telling us your specific phone. Surely it wouldn't hurt you.

    That phone is 8 years old, which is ancient when it comes to cellphones. The browser-based version of Minecraft Classic ran as a Java applet. AFAIK modern web browsers don't support those anymore.

    "Is it because my phone is old and can't take the new Minecraft? I don't really know, but it doesn't really matter, as I don't know how to fix it." It seems you already do know how to fix it. If your phone is old and can't handle the current version of Minecraft, the only way to "fix" it is get a new phone that is capable of running it.

Nope. There's no official version of Minecraft on browser that would save your progress, and Minecraft Classic is exclusive to keyboard; even if you could get it running on your phone, you'd need an external keyboard and mouse connected (both via bluetooth) to be able to play at all - and it wouldn't save. It's cheaper to just buy a new phone.

    For reference, a Samsung A13 is under $200 and probably could handle mobile minecraft.

    Or find an older version of the app somehow.
