Overall Satisfaction with BrowserStack

My job as a quality assurance engineer requires me to run functional tests on different electronic devices and operating systems. With BrowserStack, I get access to all devices I need without purchasing a physical one. It makes work less stressful and supports my automated test scripts. I can also run tests on different versions of windows and mac operating systems without having to install them on a real device. This is very convenient for my work
  • Easy access to different mobile and laptop devices
  • Supports automated test scripts
  • Supports testing on different browsers and operating systems
  • Sometimes there is a lag in device response time, which should be improved.
  • Connecting to the device in the cloud sometimes takes a little bit of time
  • Switch browser feature
  • Capture a bug feature
  • Record session feature
  • There is no need to purchase expensive devices for testing
  • Testing across multiple devices is faster now, which generally improves productivity
  • Test coverage has also improved
BrowserStack performance is generally good. Only that in some instances response time is slow. When you are typing text in a field it can delay in showing up in the input field sometimes. Pages sometimes load very slowly in those instances as well When it is used in automation testing it is generally good.
There have been issues when the company releases a software product and it misbehaves on certain devices or browsers, and this was mainly because we could not test them across a lot of devices. With BrowserStack, we can now do thorough testing across a lot of devices and operating systems, and browsers as well. This has limited issues of software defects after releases

Do you think BrowserStack delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with BrowserStack's feature set?


Did BrowserStack live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of BrowserStack go as expected?


Would you buy BrowserStack again?


BrowserStack is very helpful when I test software on different devices. I do not need to carry several physical devices to work. I can access everything on BrowserStack. However, testing software on BrowserStack devices is sometimes not convenient as there is a delay in response time. For example, I can scroll on an iPhone, and the scroll happens after two or three seconds. I think the team should work on this to improve it
