Thus, it becomes necessary to find the DPI of your device before proceeding with this task. Well, this can simply be done. Follow the below guide to keep up the pace in this matter.

Install “Display Info” app

In order to find out the best suited APK, you must be familiar with the display density value of your device and this can be done simply by installing the Display Info app.

Cross-referencing the DPI value with version of app

Once installed, open the app and find the value in the option “Density Field”. You can note it down or can simply memorize it. You must make sure that the APK you are downloading has the same value. This you can check with APK Mirror.  In case you don’t find the exact number, one thing you can proceed with is getting the APK with values less than the screen DPI of your device. Installing the APK with a higher value of DPI can cause issues.

Another thing to keep in mind is you can proceed with the APK with closed eyes in case it has “nodpi” variant. This is because the “nodpi” version is compatible with all the Android phones irrespective of their DPI.
