On most Android phones you can also find out which sensor is in the phone. In phyphox this will be available with the upcoming version 1.1.0 (or in the current beta version under "Device info" in the top right menu on the main screen), but you can also just use a third-party app like "Elixir 2" (not affiliated, but that's what I used before). Usually you will find the brand and model for most sensors and then you might be able to find datasheets for them. However, be careful about applying the info from the data sheet directly as phyphox does not get the data directly from the sensor but from the Android API. The manufacturer might run the sensor in a different mode (many sensors support different ranges and acquisition rates with different resolutions and/or noise), apply some filtering or do some calibration before handing the data to the system.

If you are interested in the exact operations done by phyphox in each experiment, I would suggest, that you have a look at our editor ( There you can open any experiment configuration and see what it does. Even more details can be found in our source code if you dare to dive into it (
