How to test your app on a specific device (smartphone) without buying this device?

The application is working fine everywhere except the LG G3 for some reason. There, judging by the screenshots, the critical problem with fonts. This smartphone is not expensive - you can certainly go out and buy, but agree that it is "not scalable" testing method. Services like Amazon Device Farm, also do not solve the problem, as there debajit wildly uncomfortable, and in the case of react-native - impossible.

Tried googling smart phone rentals in St. Petersburg, but, as expected, found nothing. It is still possible to exploit the law on protection of consumer rights :) But I am somehow ashamed to go to the nearest shop and buy is to return the smartphones through the day.

How do you solve this problem?

How many of your clients have this camera?
How much money they can bring (you can lose)?
A lot? Run Messenger and buy this piece of metal.
A little? Ignore. Love cannot be.

Sometimes device manufacturers provide the ability to drive your application through the web-form on their devices. Samsung, For Example:
developer.samsung.com/remotetestlab/rtlDeviceList....
From Nokia at the time this happened. Perhaps now is from other vendors.

But in General not a trivial task. If users of Your app a lot, through beta-testing ask them to watch on their devices. However, it is difficult then to clean up their feedback, so it is important to write that check.

Well, if you really need, but does not have one, you can buy the right camera, and the same day to take back to the store. If the unit is rare and in stores not, the question of how much priority on it to test.
