What is the best free chess program for Android?

What is the best free chess program for Android such as Samsung Galaxy S8+? A free chess program that allowed you to set up position and also let you play both sides of the board not just always against the engine? And what would the rating be approximately with Samsung S8+ ?

NOT watching what your opponent is doing in chess is the cause of most lost games with weak players !

Some weak players have read more than 10 Chess Books on openings, Middlegames, Tactics , strategies and Endgames, but they constantly play attacking moves to their opponents without watching first what their opponents can to the them, and therefore never progress in their rating :shock: :roll: :lol:...

Or more to the point, how is this 0.5 different from the 0.5 I've already had for a couple of months at least ?
I would also like to know if this version is better than the 0.5 version that lost 54.5 to 45.5 to Stockfish in TCEC ?

IN 100 games if SF reaches 51 in TCEC it should be stopped

I do not know if it was luck that AllieStein v0.5-dev_7b41f8c-n11 got a better score than LCO but AS did NOT do as good as LCO against Stockfish 19092522, probably next time around Alliestein with an update might be as strong as Stockfish, unless there is something better than RTX 2080 waiting aroun...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (5th October 2019)

I wonder how Alliestein will rate with an RTX 2080 in FRC ? Probably as good as it did here http://ccrl.chessdom.com/ccrl/404/ ?

Re: GM Kaufman you should make tutorial Videos of your Komodo vs Humans games

Regarding my doing videos or the like, I don't rule it out, but I just don't have a lot of free time between Komodo work, playing, writing, and teaching chess, and personal responsibilities. Also I'm not very knowledgeable about the latest websites, social media, etc. I may know a lot about compute...

Re: Never thought that Alliestein was in the same level with LCZero and Stockfish !

In general the chess power of an NN type engine is determined by the used NET. Particularly if the policy head - what helps engine during search - is in the given NET and this is case of Leela and her derivatives. So if Allie as a program made for utilizing of Leela`s NET works well her chess power...

Re: Never thought that Alliestein was in the same level with LCZero and Stockfish !

SF wins league even with 2 crashes! What happened to NN revolution? BTW both SF crashes did happen when there were 20 or 40 moves with same evalution. Maybe this gives a hint about the reason? The reason why Stockfish won is because Alliestein which is very similar to Leela took some important game...

Re: Never thought that Alliestein was in the same level with LCZero and Stockfish !

Even more shocking are the two crashes of Stockfish due to a faulty file. One more crash and it's out. The participant authors took a vote on whether or not the SF people should be allowed to replace that file. but because one voted no, it won't happen. Which file of Stockfish was faulty? After man...
