 Replying to [comment:14 eighthave]:
 > Sigh, that's how the Android ecosystem can be, unfortunately.  How old
 was that device?  E.g. what Android version was it running?  I don't think
 its worth spending much effort on Android older than 7.0 (`android-24`),
 since they don't even receive security updates from Google.  I think
 dealing with quirks for older than 5.1 (`android-22` released 2015) would
 not be worth spending any time.

 Tor's supported platforms policy rejects any OS that no longer gets
 security updates, with a few exceptions for common desktop / Tor Browser
