Remote debugging on a real device

Hello everybody, I'm developing a mobile app with Xamarin for both android and iOS and I was wondering if there is any service (like Xamarin Test Cloud or similar) I can use to debug my application on a specific smartphone.
For example, I've been noticed about some errors happening on a Samsung I want to test the code execution on a Samsung S8 real device without buying it (I can't buy any device where errors happen). I need to debug with Xamarin Studio and breakpoints, not only test the app as a final user.
I can't use emulators because I need the stock OS and real device hardware.
Do you know if there is something similar I can use?

I was thinking that maybe I could reach this goal by combining android "ADB over the network" feature with Test Cloud real devices , in order to rent an S8 to check the error and the code execution.

Thanks in advance

    @RoccoDavideDato If you have a friend who has got a friend who owns S8 and agreeing to help you by running your app, it doesn't matter where he lives in the world, you can use HockeyApp ( or Mobile Center ( to test, not debug, your app. Since these have got analytics and crash reports, you can use them to debug the issue offline. Otherwise I don't any method to 'debug' on a remote device, like what one can do by connecting it directly to ones own computer.
