The device landscape is as vast as it is complex. With at least 63,000 possible device profiles reported—a number growing at almost 20% per year—the scale of device fragmentation is staggering.
New models, operating systems, browsers, screen resolutions, etc., make it extremely difficult for web and app developers to deliver a consistently flawless user experience across all combinations. Namely, the same piece of code may behave differently across various device-OS-browser combinations, causing OS version-specific errors or compatibility issues.
Hence why testing an application across multiple hardware configurations and setups is crucial. But with so many variables involved, how to best leverage multiple device testing options? Should testing be performed on emulators, simulators, device farms, in-house device labs, or real, in-the-wild devices? What’s the value of one approach over the other?
Best practices for real device testing
To find out the answers to these questions, join us for a 30-minute webinar on Real Device Testing Best Practices.
In this webinar, John Ruberto, Solutions Architect at Testlio, will share the latest real device testing benchmark data from our research, explain which device/OS testing combinations are best for maximum coverage and quality results, and the most efficient approach to real device testing.
- Learn the pros & cons of emulators/simulators, device farms, in-house device labs, and in-the-wild human-based testing
- Understand when to use one method (or a combination) over others
- Analyze two real device testing use cases to learn how others find their sweet spot to ensure full device coverage
- How to select device/OS combos and match with in-the-wild testers
With more than 1200 real device/OS combinations to choose from, Testlio’s best-in-industry network of 10K+ expert, freelance testers supports all of your testing needs. Request a personalized demo to see how Testlio can help you.
