Dear Karthik,

Thank you for reaching out to SAP Community Network.

The best Android devices that supports the mentioned features is the SAMSUNG SAFE and LG DEVICES.

1)Restriction  and download of applications which are not corporate - Go to Admin UI -> Android Config Policy -> LG/Samsung SAFE -> Restriction Policy -> Check the features available

2)Restriction of Google play store -> Go to Admin UI -> Android Config Policy -> Samsung SAFE -> Application Policy -> Check the feature "Enable Google Play™ Store Application" to NO.

3)restriction of  dialing phone calls(if possible) -> We can restrict the user to make phone calls by selecting this option in "Allow Non-Emergency Calls in Samsung SAFE devices -> Restriction Policy

4)restriction of downloading contacts(if possible) -> This option is not really available but can be restricted by disabling the Backup and SD Card in Samsung SAFE device -> Restriction policy

5)restriction of media functions -  Go to Admin UI -> Android Config Policy ->Samsung SAFE -> Application Policy -> Check "Enable Youtube" to NO and can disable "Media Player" in Samsung SAFE -> Restriction Policy

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Sushmitha
