Consider a Mobile, It is integrated by many feature. Like
contacts, Bluetooth, and etc., Just we will make sure that
all the applications are integrated properly and whether we
can able to open all the application. But we will not test
the functionalites.. Ex., we will check If you Press, BT
Icon, We will just check BT Options are opening but not

Smoke testing is done by developers before the build is
released or by testers before accepting a build for further
In software engineering, a smoke test generally consists of
a collection of tests that can be applied to a newly
created or repaired computer program. Sometimes the tests
are performed by the automated system that builds the final
so here my question was how can this method be applied to
mobile testing . . .

Answer / biswajit mohanty
There are two types of smoke test carried on Mobile.
For smoke test on software, one has to check that, he/she is
able to flash the phone correctly with the provided
build/release. Once flashing process is done correctly, then
he has to check that, he/she is able to open all the
application present in the application shell like contacts,
messaging, etc etc..... Also he has to check the power
ON/OFF also happening correctly.. If this work perfect, then
one has to do sanity for the intended application in order
to decide the stability of the build for further testing in
depth. Sanity can be manual or automated.

Answer / prabhu
Smoke testing can be done on a Mobile once the latest SW
build has been released to the test team. Smoke test or
build check is nothing but jus the basic functionality
check for all applications, test scope parameters that are
involved in mobile application testing, testing very basic
and important features of the mobile and also testing the
SHOWSTOPPER issues/applications at a higher priority level.

Answer / pallavi
The term comes to software testing from a similarly basic
type of hardware testing, in which the device passed the
test if it didn't catch fire the first time it was turned on

Answer / sairam
As far as i know about smoke testing : It is done by
Developers on the code they have written to test whether
any memory leaks are happening or not.for this they check
whether they have given sufficient memory in to the
application,they also check whether the memory refresh is
happening properly or not, as the memory is stored in Stack
the Stack must be cleared once the application is killed,
but if that does not happen then the stack will pile up and
causes some issues due to some memory problems To solve
this devlopers use Smoke test to find such errors and this
is called smoke testing as far as i know,
Please correct me if i am wrong.

Answer / prem
Smoke testing in context of sofware testing is like a basic
sanity testing to check if the software meets the minimum
entrance criterion to be taken further for regression
With reference to mobile phone testing, usually a subset
of regression test cases (the most basic ones) are
executed (manual or automated) and execution time not
exceeding 30min - 1hr.

Answer / praveen
as pallavi answered smoke testing has derived from hardware
testing.. its a basic testing technique done on the hardware
after connections are made to check any short circuit has
happened or not.. that is to check the connections are
intact and no hardware is burnt. if any hardware is burnt
smoke comes out.. so its referred as smoke testing.. its the
initial testing procedure... and in the context of smoke
testing on mobiles, we see to that the handset gets powered
on without any circuit damage to the handset... thats no
smoke coming from the mobile.. :-)
