This example demonstrate about How to check android mobile supports MAGNETIC FIELD sensor

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

      android:layout_height="match_parent" />

In the above code, we have taken text view to show MAGNETIC FIELD sensor information.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/

package com.example.myapplication;
import android.annotation.SuppressLint;
import android.content.Context;
import android.hardware.Sensor;
import android.hardware.SensorManager;
import android.os.Build;

   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      TextView actionEvent = findViewById(;
      sensorManager = (SensorManager) getSystemService(Context.SENSOR_SERVICE);
      sensorManager = (SensorManager) getSystemService(Context.SENSOR_SERVICE);
      if (sensorManager.getDefaultSensor(Sensor.TYPE_MAGNETIC_FIELD) != null) {
         actionEvent.setText("MAGNETIC FIELD sensor supports");
      } else {
         actionEvent.setText("no MAGNETIC FIELD sensor supports");

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer.
