Cloud Device Farm

The Cloud Device Farm (CDF) allows you to remotely access an actual Samsung mobile device over the Internet (these devices use U.S. mobile service providers). CDF is exclusive and free to Samsung Developer Program members.

Using CDF, you can install and test your applications in real time. This is a cost-effective and easy way to test the compatibility of your application with a Samsung mobile device.

On CDF, you can:

  • Reserve an actual Samsung mobile device

  • Install, launch, and test applications on the device

  • Capture high resolution screenshots

  • Monitor and download log information for debugging your application

  • Watch automatically recorded videos of your sessions

  • View your commercially available apps in the U.S. Galaxy Store*

*You can also view your app in a Galaxy Store of another country (see Remote Galaxy Store and Test Your Galaxy Store Badge for more information).


Theme APK testing is not supported because you cannot access the device settings.


You cannot log in to a personal Samsung account because CDF devices use a preset Samsung account. However you can log in to Google Play with a personal Google account.

Attention Fortnite Players: Fortnite cannot be installed nor played on any Cloud Device Farm device. Any attempt to install Fornite will not succeed.
