I've got a new phone, a Pixel XL from Google, it's running Android 7.1 on a snapdragon 821.  The latter is a just a slightly faster version of the 820 which's been used on most high end Android phones this year, so I wouldn't expect any compatibility problems but my attempts to get work are all failing with a report that nothing is available.

 

On the status page, it's just identifying here as "4 processors" without any detail about what the specific CPU type is.  I assume that's somehow related the no work problem.  OTOH Quake Catcher Network has been able to send it work so it can't be completely hosed.  QCN appears to batch up its validation and do 5 days of results at a time though, so I haven't gotten to see if any of my results will validate yet.

Some Android and Linux

Some Android and Linux kernels report the NEON capability as 'asimd' which doesn't match what we look for ('neon'). We'll see how we can fix this on our end.
