I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, no 4G though. I tried to install QGIS and was able to. However, the main panel was missing (Project, Edit, View, etc) so I couldn't find a way to connect to the GPS. From the information I've gathered, it is buggy and seems to not install properly and/or work at all but seems to be getting better.

Here are some useful resources I found:

A wiki site for QGIS/Android, http://hub.qgis.org/

This is more of open source solutions website. They have a section dedicated to QGIS/Android; http://www.opengis.ch/android-gis/

If you are going to attempt to install QGIS on your Android device, you'll need Ministro, which is a free download at the Play Store


You may try NextGIS mobile. This is native Android application with good QGIS integration.

The documentation is here: http://docs.nextgis.com/docs_ngmobile/source/toc.html

For collaborating field work I also recommend nextgis.com web GIS. It free and also has integration with QGIS (via NextGIS Connect plugin) and Mobile (native).
