Non-functionality testing is the best practice to check the storage of a
mobile application like if there is any change in the size of the software
before and after downloading.
We have to check how much time is consumed to download the mobile
application in normal cases. The network issues may interrupt the proper
downloading of the application so we will also look for the functioning of this
application in all networks like 2G/3G/4G. An assessment of the act of
application without the internet also has to be analyzed.
Check the behaviour of your application like, the way it deals with any quick
interruption while processing. The reaction of your application when there is
a sudden incoming call, message, or a battery low warning is being
monitored. Also, every case is monitored again by turning the mobile data
on and off.
Size of Buttons matter
Every button in your application should be user-friendly. The user must be
able to differentiate between buttons. So the size of a button must be
Buttons must be placed in the right place
There must be proper placement for every button in an application. A
proper pattern for placing every button ensures that the users can avoid
confusion in search of the buttons such as the Home button, Exit button,
and so on.
Procedures while installing an application
There would be a common approach for installing every application from
the Playstore/Appstore. We will check if any sort of unwanted process or
validation is required for installing your application. Also, it should be
checked that the version of an application in the play store/App store is
shown the same, as before and after downloading the application.
An accurate response always matters for mobile applications because
everyone prefers an application that is quick to respond. So it is essential to
check the response of each button and evaluate its performance in both
cases by turning the mobile data on and off.
Battery Consumption statistics
Every application has a different type of battery consumption. Some may
consume less and some consume more and drain the battery within a short
time span. The battery usage completely depends upon the application and
its performance. It is important to check how the battery consumption is
related to the performance of that application.
Figure out the system response i.e., how much time is taken to open the
application once it has been closed and also check the functioning of the
system in its background while downloading or uploading a file.
Different type of Non-functional testing
There are different types of Non-functional testing. Performance testing is
one among them which includes load testing, stress testing, volume testing
and many others. These are automated and every application must go
through these kinds of testing to ensure good performance and a better
