This type of testing is generally being done to ensure the quality of a mobile device. Testing includes hardware and software testing for a mobile. We will discuss here the different types of testing which are generally being carried out on a mobile devices.
Unit testing is a test phase when portions of a mobile device development are tested, usually by the developer. It may contain hardware testing, software testing, and mechanical testing.
Factory testing is a kind of sanity check on mobile devices. It is conducted automatically to verify that there are no defects brought by the manufacturing or assembling. It mainly includes the following testing −
Certification testing is the check before a mobile device goes to the market.
Mobile application testing is a process by which application a software developed for handheld mobile devices is tested for its functionality, usability, and consistency. There are different types of testing which can be performed on a mobile device. For example,
Device testing is generally being carried out to check the mobile device itself, whereas Mobile application testing involves testing of an application which will be running on the chosen device.
When we call it device testing, hardware testing becomes a part of it. In case of mobile application testing, it depends, i.e., if the application under test requires hardware integration, then hardware testing will be involved.
Automation is possible for Mobile Device testing as well as for Mobile application testing.
