Answer / john tester
There really is no difference between the two. As the last
writer stated, not all user interfaces are 'graphical'.
You could be testing a web service or an API where in both
cases, there may not be a 'GUI' to enter values into.
You're still testing the required inputs and the expected
outputs, but with GUI's, there's an additional aspect to
In a GUI, you may be testing requirements like color
scheme, button naming conventions, drop down menus and
content on top of testing the required inputs and expected
outputs. In a plain vanilla UI, you are testing the same
things minus the GUI elements.
If an interviewer gives you a questions like this, they're
asking if you would prefer to have ice in your soft drink
or frozen water.
So, if you get this question in an interview. Be careful.
If they know what they're talking about, they may just be
checking to see if you make something up or if you really
know what you're talking about.

In GUI we will ckeck the look and feel of the objects ,which
are shown in the user interface.
IN UI we will check the weather the priscribed fields are
available or not. Here prescribed fields means what ever
fields(objects) are used by end user.
