Frequently Asked Questions

Why is testing your website on Samsung Galaxy devices critical?

Samsung devices have close to 28% of the global market share. In some countries such as India and Brazil, this percentage can go up to 37% as well. Thus, in order to give the best user experience, it is important to test on real Samsung Galaxy devices, prior to taking your website or app live.

What is a Samsung Galaxy Emulator?

Samsung Galaxy Emulator is an online virtual device that mimics the software and hardware conditions of that Galaxy device. A developer or QA can use this galaxy emulator as a platform to execute and test your applications & websites on your PC.

Why do developers opt for Samsung Galaxy Emulators?

  • Given Samsung Galaxy devices have good market penetration, testing your websites and apps for Galaxy devices is a must

  • Companies do not want to invest in an expensive real Samsung Galaxy Device Lab, which needs maintenance and constant addition, given new device releases by Samsung every year
