What’s the best Android for app testing? While there isn’t really a good answer to that question (because you need to test across makers and models) Evans Data asked more than 350 developers anyway. Samsung took the top spot by a hefty margin, getting half of the vote – 20% higher than its closest competitor HTC.
But even with Samsung and HTC capturing so much favor, the report cautions that developers should continue to test their apps on as many devices as possible:
“Developers must test their applications to work on numerous implementations of Android that vary by manufacturer, or even within a single manufacturer’s collection of offerings. Android fragmentation is a reality that developers will have to face if they decide to work on Android.”
