Additional screen size defaults for Android devices
1080x1920 BUT... We need all devices like here https://material.io/devices/
You can do like this (ATTACHMENT) and add tabs that would eliminate the appearance of scroll
I would like more android size as well, I mean Sketch and Figma has more android sizes. It's easier than for us to search
on our own.
It is frankly outrageous that XD prioritises Apple when the majority of the world's users use Android.

I need this feature badly since most of my client want androids apps.
@Theunis, maybe this is related? - https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/37256749-responsive-artboard
I think it would be essential to include more artboard sizes for creating new projects, especially and specifically on Android platforms. I know, as does the rest of the community, that there are more screen resolution varients vs Apple's. We get it. However, Sketch and Framer along with Figma ALL give more than one option for Android. You don't need to make template sizes for every single one, maybe just for the more popular sizes like Google's Pixel or Huawei's P series. It's not that difficult. One resolution option is not enough and out-dated.
And while you're at it, make a system to allow users to change artboards on the fly, either for all art-boards in a project or just a group. This would allow people to dynamically see how their design could change across different resolutions. It could make problem-solving layouts quicker than the current system.
I am very new to the world of UI/UX design and I realise with that comes the pertinent fact that I might not know what I'm talking about. Yet I doubt that because other applications offer such flexibility. So why can't one of the biggest, if not thé biggest, creative software company design an adaptive artboard system for a burgeoning and every-growing platform?
Just FYI, I love XD and I just want it to be amazing.

I am aware that my previous comment does leave you guys with a slippery slope for device presets... but I think the majority of us will understand if there is a hard cutoff on the devices selected.
(Maybe there is an opportunity for someone who is more skilled than I to make a plugin to accomplish this...)

Running the risk of beating a dead horse here... I too would appreciate seeing more options for designing for Android devices...
The current sizes don't really allow for flexibility of thought when designing apps quickly.
I either have to use an Iphone artboard and pretend the size is the same for Android devices or do the math myself... would be nice to have some presets for at least the comparably popular Android devices (i.e. Samsung Galaxy Series, Google Pixel)
Does anyone know the size for let's say an S9? I'm new to XD and I don't see any androids in the artboards

There are many android screen sizes available today. As you have different iphone sizes available in Artboards, there can be a few more artboars for android too. Maybe most popular or common sizes. In the attached screenshot, We can do with more android screen options.
It would make a huge difference to have some art board templates for Android devices, or at least some of the more popular models , such as the Samsung Galaxy range. It currently feels very Apple centric.

Definitely some more base sizes for android. There must be a default list.
While the iPhone may be the primary device that people use and the most common to design for, and while there may be too many Android devices to design for all of them, it would be amazing if there were at least a few more art board sizes. Specifically for the Google Pixel phone which is their flagship phone. I don't have any way to know what size of screen to design for when I want to design for the Pixel screen size. All I can see is that there is a generic artboard size for Android that is titled "Android Mobile" and I don't know what that means.
Thank you for your time in reviewing this.
I think it would be great to have one template for each.

I am looking forward to the launch of the new LG G6 ( http://lgg6s.com/ ) as I want to check out the phone myself. I have been using Samsung phones till date so this time I want to try LG G6. They have scraped the modular look and will sport an all glass look so I want to try it out.

I would be happy for a more Android devices examples with different dimensions as much as for iOS devices.
