Overall Satisfaction with BrowserStack

We use BrowserStack for our mobile test automation (native app). We have our automation running on a CI/CD pipeline on every build to prevent regressions so that we can quickly deploy new versions of our mobile app. We do not have a dedicated mobile team so having the automation do a large chunk of the core flows in our QA process saves significant time.
  • device selection (large ios and android device choices)
  • ease of use (easy setup)
  • great documentation for getting started
  • Faster turnarounds for beta releases
  • better debugging tools for remote usage
  • smoother interface when using live views
  • device farm options
  • dashboard to see test videos/logs
  • decreased regressions from 3 days using 4 QAs to 1 day with 4 QAs
  • improved test coverage
  • Ability to deploy package updates without manual qa
Generally it's up and connects without issue. Occasional something went wrong issues during test that appear to be internet connection related on BrowserStack side. Sometimes localization problems randomly with foreign device.
Helped during remote work from home as it allowed teams to test mobile builds in the cloud without having a phone shipped to the QA. It is slower than doing QA on a real device, but it works well enough for the most part.
BrowserStack had the most device types and availability of the devices compared to Kobiton and Amazon Device Farm. Price wise it was significantly cheaper than Saucelabs for the number of parallel threads needed.

Do you think BrowserStack delivers good value for the price?

BrowserStack is great for organizations that need to test a wide variety of devices for their mobile app (test matrix) and ensure they are not breaking older versions of android or iOS. Form factors are also easy to come by with the size of their device farm. They also have plenty of each type of device, so your automation almost always runs on the selected configuration (unlike other device farms).

Ability to run parallel tests for automation also speeds up feedback loops but it does get costly. So if you have a lot of end to end tests, your jobs might take a long time.
