Advantages of mobile emulators


The following are a few advantages of using emulators for mobile test automation:

  • If we want to validate the original look, feel, and behavior of real devices without investing in one, then using an emulator is the best option.

  • We can easily configure the hardware specification of the emulated real device that we want to use depending on the needs; for example, we can configure the operating system version, RAM, whether an SD card is present or not and its size, and many more for a lower-level validation with real-world conditions.

  • Physical devices are cumbersome to maintain and manage, besides being costly, and any organization will have to keep its inventory updated with numerous releases of newer devices. With emulators, all these overheads can be eliminated in a cost-effective and secure way.
