The most popular smartphones screen values for mobile application testing

We’re now at the point where there are thousands of available global smartphone devices with hundreds of brands, some are more known and popular and some are total no-names. Also, it does not mean that A-brands or B-brands are popular or are available in some specific countries or regions. The Pareto-law is true here as well and usually, there are 5-7 leading brands/devices that take up to 80% of all sales in the region.

It means that for developing and testing your mobile app it is necessary to consider two main points:

  • Devices that are popular in the regions of your interest. These popular devices will be in the hands of the majority of your real users, thus, if there are unfixed bugs it will give them reasons to RIP your app.
  • Mobile devices specification (Screen resolution, Density-independent pixels, etc).

We made a research and have collected for you the list of the most popular devices in United states and European markets including mobile devices technical specifications.

Enjoy your mobile application testing sessions!
