AndrOffice is an unofficial port of OpenOffice for Android devices. Whether it will be usable on a mobile phone I cannot say - I cannot use it with any comfort on an 8" tablet.

Oh my... IMHO, it's so uncomfortable to use tools like Open Office on mobile devices. Can't imagine how anyone writes texts or manages sheets on those small mobile screens. As a writer, I find it a nightmare to create content via mobile versions of Calc, Word, or Draw. laptops and tablets - yes, but mobiles... :crazy:

Gosh! You are complimentary! I would delete "so uncomfortable" and replace it with "virtually impossible" ... :crazy:

Seeing that you use a Samsung phone with decent spec, I'd guess that you can. Only one way to find out for certain, and you are the only one with the power to do just that. How about just giving it a try?

AndrOpen Office is available via Google Play. Of course, working on a small touchscreen is close to a nightmare, but it is at least possible in an emergency situation. And AndrOpen Office is handy when you have to view an office document
