If you are not using a Samsung Galaxy device then you don’t need to wait till the end of the year now to get HERE Beta for Android on your Android devices. You can install it right now from the download link given at the bottom of the article.
In case you are wondering why you should prefer it over the default Google Maps, then our HERE Maps vs Google Maps shootout will help in making your decision easy.
The general rule for compatibility is a device with Android 4.1 (‘Jelly Bean’) or greater. However, if you want to get the best results, we recommend smartphones with 1GB of RAM or more and a screen size between 4” – 6”.
How to install:
It is the standard way to install or side-load any apps from unknown sources that Android enthusiasts must be familiar with. For new Android users, here is what you can do,
1) Go to Settings in your phone, then Security (which could also be under Settings > More Options). Then tick the “Unknown sources” box. This allows apps from sources other than the official app store to be installed on your phone.
2) Download HERE Beta file “downloaded HERE_beta_175.apk” from the link given below. Tap on the downloaded file, install and you are all set to enjoy the bliss called real offline Maps and navigation.
