Overall Satisfaction with BrowserStack

The company I work for builds websites for higher education institutions. We use BrowserStack to check multiple devices and versions of mobile devices, tablets, and browsers. Using BrowserStack allows us to check older versions as well as new versions which saves us from having to purchase actual devices. We currently use BrowserStack in our QA and development departments.
  • A wide variety of devices
  • Easy to learn and use
  • Browser testing allows for a variety of screen resolutions
  • The connection is usually pretty slow
  • Scrolling can be difficult
  • Sometimes they will remove devices
  • We have been able to QA more thoroughly
  • Developers without access to devices now can replace and fix issues
  • The cost savings for a team subscription with BrowserStack than buying individual devices
When we decided to purchase a subscription to BrowserStack, we compared the costs, functionality, and reviews of other mobile testing platforms such as Saucelabs and Cross Browser Testing. BrowserStack was a better fit for our company especially when it came to functionality and cost.
It is great for spot checking devices. However, if you need to do a full review I don't recommend BrowserStack because the scrolling isn't always the best and changing pages is very slow.
