Filter Android Play Store Reviews Based on Phone, App Version

Downloading applications from app stores like Windows, Android, or iOS has the advantage of allowing users to read comments before downloading. However, user reviews on Android’s Play Store can be confusing because they come from people using different Android phones and devices. Additionally, the reviews are not categorized by the app version, so they can be misleading. For example, a 1-star review from someone using an older version of Angry Birds on an entry-level Android device might not accurately reflect the app’s performance.

Today I will show you how to filter reviews based on your phone model and application version to gain better insights.

Filtering Reviews on Android

Step 1: Search for the app you want to read reviews for and open it. In this case, we will be reading and filtering reviews for Go SMS Pro. Step 2: Open the app description and scroll down to the user review and comments section. Play Store displays the last three reviews for the app, and you can tap “See all” to view all reviews made by users for that specific app.

After opening the application page, go to the User Review tab and choose the device and app version in the User Reviews section.

Conclusion

This trick can be helpful. I suggest filtering and reading user reviews for your device and the latest version of the app whenever you have an app update on Play Store. From what you can see, while updating Go SMS Pro, I got negative reviews and decided to stick with the older version of the app for now. Makes sense, right?
