Why does the phone need these minimum specifications?
Android 7.1.1 or Higher
There isn't a specific limitation on the Android version required. There are obvious advantages to running more recent versions of Android.
Without GPS we can't track the drivers. Drivers also can't use Google Maps for navigation.
Battery Above 3000mAh
This is probably the most important spec. We are constantly tracking location, even in the background. We are also getting updates in the background. When the device is unlocked and on a delivery we attempt to keep the screen on so the drivers could mount the phone and have visibility. All that uses a lot of battery. When the battery gets low, Android starts killing things that are running in the background and other services consuming a lot of power (GPS, 4G) which means even if our app doesn't get killed, we are not getting locations and we don't have a great signal or any signal at all.
Dual SIM capability
This is not a requirement. Mobile data does not automatically switch between the SIMs, so the driver would have to manually switch when they know or realize that signal is bad in an area - The second SIM slot can be used for a normal SIM so drivers can call the customer if needed.
