My Huawei G700 runs tasks in about 200,000 - 300,000 seconds.


Those tasks sure take a long time, for me it usually takes about 60,000 seconds with the S4 mini.

Android Bonic / Seti applications exist that will run on your smart cellphone. It is available via Google Play. The setup includes a large number of different research choices, including Seti. As I understand it, it won't process unless the phone is plugged into a charger, the battery is above 90% and the screen is turned off.

As far as I can tell, it is running two tasks on a 4 cpu phone (I think it is 4 cpus)

You can change these options in the setting menu in the app, you may need to activate "advance settings" or something similar to that.
You can also change the number of cores that are used, I think the default is 2 so if you want to run on all cores you need to select 4.

Personally I have an old Samsung Galaxy S4 mini running 1 task of SETI and 1 task of Einstein.

And sometimes I run my own Nexus 6P on SETI beta, which has 8 cores and does run 8 tasks. (currently no task running)

Running times vary but it usually it takes a lot of time and you don't get much credit for your time but you just have to let it go and not worry about it.
