Considering the wide variety of mobile devices from apple to Samsung to android and to Symbian and so on, it is very hard for the testing team to arrange all sorts of mobile devices while working under considerable amount of budget and timeline related constraints. Solution – Mobile emulators are powerful tools for developing mobile applications and are widely used for both manual and automated mobile application testing. But can they deliver 100% coverage? Are these reliable? Can we neglect Real-device Testing? Are there any limitations to Emulators? When to use Real devices for Testing?
Some say ‘Testing’ is not a skill set, I say Yes. It’s a ‘Mindset’! We have quite to learn from Virat Kohli, what makes up a solid Mobile App Tester?
The Android Studio Emulator mimics all of the hardware and software features of a typical mobile device, except that it cannot place actual phone calls.
It’s no secret that mobile apps are well on their way to capturing the lion’s share of consumer’s attention. Organizations of all sizes are compelled by either consumer demand or competitive pressures to aggressively build their own consumer facing mobile apps. Mobile app development projects place a premium on time to market and often this places even greater pressure on application security testing.
It is not budget or time effective to gather & maintain all the latest devices. That’s why we choose to use Simulator and Emulator in Mobile Testing.
QA analysts are often confronted with the same question for Mobile application Testing – Go for Manual testing or to try out new automated techniques?
