Huawei and Honor models are one of the most difficult to root. If you’re buying a new phone specifically for working with iProxy - choose phones we listed at the article’s beginning with rooting instructions. We recommend Alcatel 1 5033d Android 8.1.0 (one of the cheapest rootable phones. You can find a used model for around 1-2 thousand rub.), Lenovo Vibe k5 plus, Ulefone s10 pro, Oukitel с12 pro, etc.
XiaoMi phones performed well enough, but there’s certain models that don’t work properly with proxies. If you ALREADY have a XiaoMi, install the app and test it out to see whether it works for you.
