Shakespeare Phone Requirements
Shakespeare needs a phone that runs iOS but otherwise it only requires barely any processing power, any GPU within the last few years to tackle the minimal graphical requirements, and a very small amount of RAM. However it runs, the essential requirement is the 6 minimum iOS version which requires a fairly recent device.
The Apple iPhone 5s 16 GB matches the Shakespeare hardware specifications.
