Abstract—Android open source mobile operating system has
been used by major smartphone manufacturing companies. Its
market share also exceeded 80% in the third quarter of 2013.
Turnkey solution, offed by MediaTek, helps phone makes to
build their phones from a phone template. This easy-to-make
solution produces a large volume of Android-powered no-brand
phones. It is crucial to ensure the compatibility and reliability of
apps run on these phones. This study proposes test cases for
performing system testing, compatibility testing, and automated
stress testing of Android apps. Our experimental results show
the validity of the test cases.
Index Terms—Android apps testing, no-brand smartphone, test automation, test case.
