after the bank update there was a paragraph about mobile:

"Note: After looking at a year’s worth of device data we have decided to disable RuneScape Mobile access for some devices, mainly running on Android 5, due to their poor performance and ability to run the game smoothly."

I am currently using sony xperia m4 aqua (android 6.0.1) and google store states that my device is no longer compatible.

My question is what are the new requirements to play RS mobile and who got left out?

Its weird. I can understand if you have an ancient phone but mine running on Android 7.0. The runescape app worked fine and ive had no problems like this with other games or apps.

Redmi Note 7 - Android 9 (4GB RAM, Octa 2.2GHz)

Handled 2 RS3 Clients and bunch of background apps, still without performance drops or problems and i've got cut out too.
I fear the night. Because the werewolves and vampires don't.

I too got kicked out of the beta on my new phone:
Xiaomu Redmi Note 7
Android 9
Octa-core (4x2.2 GHz Kryo 260 & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 260)

Totally flabbergasted that I can still access it on my old phone though:
Sony Xperia XA1
Android 8 (Upgraded from 7)
Octa-core (4x2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4x1.6 GHz Cortex-A53)

It runs better on the Xiaomi from 2019 and that one got booted, but they keep the old Sony from 2017? The specs don't differ that much - why on Gielinor did the Xiaomi get booted?

The funny thing is that they gather a "years worth of feedback", without considering that there was a major phone beta update earlier that solved lots of these problems.

I'm on a OnePlus 2 that got cut off the beta while I literally played on the morning of the update day!
