Real devices vs simulator vs emulator in mobile testing

According to GSMA real-time intelligence data, over 5.13 Billion people worldwide own mobile devices (cell phones, tablets or cellular enabled IoT devices). If we consider only these from 3 top producers - Samsung, Apple and Huawei there are more than 1500 models and every year we get a new ones. So it’s obvious that when it comes to mobile testing we are facing problems related to fragmentation of the market - how many devices we need to test our mobile application with? How other testing tools could help us in this process? In this article, we will focus on differences between testing on real mobile devices vs. simulators and emulators.
