Most Popular Hardware

Date Written: 6/20/19

NOTE: With the advancement of technology and constant release of new devices, this list is only valid for the time it was written. We write an updated version of this article about twice a year to account for hardware changes.

December was the last time we updated the list of most popular hardware used by home inspectors. The list hasn't changed much since then as the list of tablets is actually the exact same.

As always, there is not a single device that is the 'best' one to use with Palm-Tech. There are quite a few devices that run the program great. At the end of the day it mostly comes down to getting the device that will work best for you.

Below is a list of the most popular devices being used by home inspectors who use Palm-Tech in the field for their home inspections:


  • iPad Air
  • iPad Mini
  • iPad Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, S4
  • Asus ZenPad 3S
  • Microsoft Surface Pro


  • iPhone 8, 8+, X, XR, XS, XS Max
  • Samsung Galaxy S9, S10
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8, 9 
  • Google Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and 3 XL
  • LG G7 ThinQ, G8 ThinQ

The list of devices above is not meant to be a comprehensive list of all the possible devices that Palm-Tech runs on. The goal is to have the list be a starting point if you are looking at getting a new device and wondering what other inspectors use with Palm-Tech. It's also important to note that while the app will run on multiple generations of the same device (iPhone 6S, 7, 7+, 8, 8+, X for example), the newer the model the better the app will run. There can be a major difference in speed and performance between generations of the same device.
