Medscape Phone Requirements
Medscape needs a phone that runs android or iOS but otherwise it only requires barely any processing power, a low quality GPU for the low-intensive graphics, and a very small amount of RAM. However it runs, the essential requirement is the 2.3 minimum Android version or the 6 minimum iOS version, which requires a fairly recent device.
The Samsung Galaxy SIII matches the Medscape hardware specifications.
Android 2.3 / iOS 6
