Why Add Android Emulators & iOS Simulators?

Nothing beats a real device for accuracy. But adding Android emulators and iOS simulators to your testing is a fast, scalable, and cost-efficient way to extend test coverage and minimize escaped defects.

Virtually Unbeatable

Perfecto emulators and simulators ran in one-third of the time it took our leading competitors, according to recent benchmarks. Teams love testing on virtual devices like Android emulators and iOS simulators because they are fast. But with Perfecto, they are virtually unbeatable. 


One Platform for Real & Virtual

Android emulators and iOS simulators can't catch every bug. But testing on real devices only can result in limited coverage. With Perfecto, teams have one platform with a proven strategy for mobile app testing on real and virtual devices.

Test More. Test Fast. Rest Easy.

Test more, test easy with virtual devices hosted in the Perfecto Cloud. 


Easy and cost-effective compared to maintaining your own virtual test environment.

Always Available

Our Android emulators and iOS simulators are available on-demand. No waiting for testing.


Emulators and simulators are single-use only, so your app data will never be visible to anyone else.


Test Earlier

Shift testing left. Find bugs earlier & improve quality with emulators and simulators.

Improve Coverage

Supplement real device testing. Test across a wide variety of emulators and simulators.

Test Faster

Accelerate mobile app testing with the right mix of real and virtual devices.


“Real device testing in the Perfecto cloud helped us achieve our quality goals. Next, we wanted to move faster. Combining real device testing along with emulators and simulators at the appropriate phases in the development cycle allowed us to maintain app quality and speed up our testing efforts. The scale and reliability we have achieved with Perfecto is remarkable.”
