Epocrates Phone Requirements
Epocrates needs a phone that runs android or 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 2.2 minimum Android version or the 6 minimum iOS version, which requires a fairly recent device.
The Samsung Galaxy SIII matches the Epocrates hardware specifications.
Android 2.2 / iOS 6
