Facebook Home not supported

Facebook Home is now available in Google Play, but not for every Android device. Facebook says it'll be adding more in the near future. (And if you don't mind a little hackery, you should be able to get it onto your phone easily enough.)

Here is the list of phones that are officially able to run Facebook Home. We'll update it for the first several months as Facebook adds more devices. (Facebook Home currently is only officially available in the United States.)

Android phones that are supported by Facebook Home:

Which Android smartphones can get Facebook Home?


"more happier"...really??? Sorry it might not be as "pimp slapping" as your note 2, but its a great phone. Stop being such a douchebag all of the time.

Have a look at the people who can use any Android phone available worldwide. People like Phil, or Josh Topolsky, or Myriam Joire. They have tried every single damn phone available, and use the Nexus 4.

There's a reason. 

Is it the obvious bias or is there actually a payoff involved?

The N4 is a good device but a weak one for the time frame it was put out in.

If it didn't have the Nexus name attached, AC would have called it a mid range device.

But it a Nexus so it is perfect

I just tried it with my Nexus 4, all I had to do is change the built props. It's okay if you're really really into Facebook, if you only do Facebook stuff its really easy but if you want to do anything else it makes it harder.

even though i could care less for facebook home, i am just curious why the one x and galaxy s3 gets this, but not the evo lte?

I downloaded the apk file and tried to install it. Which went fine. But upon running the file I got a message that my device wasn't supported. No big deal as I'm sure I would be deleting it about 5 minutes after I ran it anyways. ;)

I'm still trying to understand who feels so out of touch with their social network that they would want an entire homescreen launcher dedicated to Facebook. Widgets and Apps aren't enough? :(

Sadly, probably millions :/ I will say it's cool to finally see something as big as "the new facebook" only available on Android.

Just got it working on my HTC One V :)
So far not encountered any problem.. Can't understand why didn't they launch for all device?

Well, once they— no… oh, there was a time when— wait, no… oh, yeah. They made Facebook. Wait, nvm, that still had a negative effect. Yup, you're right.

Works on my Nexus 4

Editing the build.prop will get this working on any phone.

That being said, it sucks and I'll be uninstalling it soon.

Do not install if you want to get any info besides Facebook updates.
If the only app on your phone that you use is Facebook, then Facebook Home is for you.
No widgets, no luck screen!

Wow I downloaded this and had it for about ten minutes. It sucks. I couldn't use my other widgets. I don't want to know what my fb friends are doing all the f'ing time. Horrible idea.

I was able to Dl the app through the playstore internet browser for my Galaxy tab 10.1 as well. it's just not supported as of now

Any of them, check XDA. Don't even need to alter your build.prop. Not my cup of tea and ran surprisingly sluggish on my DNA.

Running on a 3 year old Samsung Showcase - Would never want it on my main phone. Just got it running on a test one to try it out.

Okay why doesn't support the AT&T One X ? Just tried it and said it doesn't. I'm sure it can seeing as the quad core variant can and the cruddy spec-ed HTC First

Facebook should not do this restriction about facebook home. at least they should push this Facebook Home software to ICS and JB
