    Hi,

    I need to download some apk from apkmirror website for my phone. The question is what dpi edition of that apk I should select for my mobile phone.

    Is the edition with 'nodpi'? Or a proper edition strictly according to the dpi value of my mobile phone?

    Thank you in advance.

    As I don't know what phone you've got and what DPI value it is, I say try the various DPIs until you find one that installs and works correctly on your device. If in doubt, use the "nodpi" one might be aright.

    The 'nodpi' designation is just a non-specific identifier, it applies to any device.
    https://www.apkmirror.com/faq/
    Quote below from apkmirror's FAQ

    DPI: screen density, measured in dots per inch. Each device has a certain DPI metric, and some APKs are optimized for specific DPIs.
    • nodpi: APKs marked nodpi, or not marked with any DPI-related info at all, are meant for all devices.
    • 120, 160, …, 640 dpi: these APKs are meant for specific DPIs only. See the next several questions for more details.

    Okay, I see. The 'nodpi' edition should work for my device.
    The resolution of my device is 1080 x 1920 pixels. The display size is 6 ". So, I think the dpi should be 367.
