Does my phone work with Movi?

There are two elements to consider for compatibility:

  • Hardware (your physical phone, size, shape, case and location of the camera)
  • Software (what operating system it uses and if our app will run on your phone)

Hardware

The Movi uses an adjustable clamp to physically accommodate a variety of phones. However, there is a possibility that a Plus/Max/XL phone won’t fit, if you have a bulky case. If you are unsure if your case will fit, check out the graphic below:

If the camera on your phone is in the center of the body (like the Samsung S9/S9+), you will need counterweights to keep the roll motor out of view of the camera. Check our compatibility chart for recommendations on which supported phones will require counterweights for standard operation.

Software

With hundreds of Android models on the market and in the field and most of them requiring customized support, it is a challenge for a small team like ours to provide a quality, integrated experience across the platform.

To provide the best experience possible to a focused group of users, Freefly supports a select group Android phones for the Movi Cinema Robot Android App. The list of preferred phones, and their supported features and known capabilities can be found on our website.

Phones not on the chart, may work great! We just haven’t had a chance to test and optimize for anything that may be different, so there may be some operational issue when it comes to the app.

Feel free to download the app from Google Play or the App Store to check out the interface and receive notifications when updates are released. Since the app is designed specifically for use with the Movi, functionality will be limited when used on its own.
