So, I am trying to play pokemon go..
I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 Model number SCH-i535
Android Version 4.4.2

It will not let me download from Google Play store and I have tried downloading and running the APK mirror and still have no luck

I can Open the app, and sign in, but after i try to sign in, it says its not compatible with a blue themed color in the background , it also says  "Learn More" and looks like a link but i cannot tap or click on it :(

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

And also, if you find a solution for me and it works i will give you 2,500 GB Dollars.

If even the app does not allow you to play because it is incompatible then there is very little you can do to be honest. There might be some sort of a version that can get around this but I doubt you would be able to play the game probably because the servers might think you are trying to cheat. Only hope is to get upgrade your phone

How old is your phone? Try taking your device to a phone specialist and see if there is a fault with it. I know with a old phones some apps won't be compatible.
This won't work, unfortunately. I'm not sure of the exact year but the S3 is pretty old especially considering the S9 is about to be released. A phone specialist won't be able to help you out since you're phone is just outdated (the software included). This means that Pokemon Go is just incompatible with your phone, and unlike other games, they check this in the actual app as well. So even if you do get the APK, like you did, the app won't work because you won't be able to get past the initial screen.
