I am currently a QA lead at Nike, leading a team of 4 in manual and automated testing efforts.

Prior to Nike, I was at Webtrends for 2+ years, and prior to that was at Microsoft for 13 years. During my time at Microsoft my responsibilities evolved from test planning and manual testing on various projects to --> writing automation and overseeing manual testing efforts from vendors to --> Developing automation tools and processes for the Windows Live organization including a web UI automation framework and a test result reporting platform as well as other smaller tools. At Webtrends I was the most senior automation engineer and was responsible for creating and executing on an automation plan for the company. We went from no automation to significant coverage via UI automation for both of our legacy products as well as near 100% web service automation for one of our new products. In addition, I created performance test suites for 3 products and was involved in hiring 5 additional developers in test for the company.

The second option has the most chance of success in my experience. Third option is iffy, different configurations could perform better or worse under various circumstances. You can usually determine whether CPU specific operations, or disk IO operations specifically will perform better or worse, but when you combine everything together, it's iffy.

Also, are you talking about code coverage for the server side code, javascript or both? There are very different solutions for each.

One caveat, switching the User-Agent does not reliably render content the same way that using the browser on the device would, or potentially use the same JavaScript engine, and also would typically be a much different screen resolution. These could cause issues ranging from minor layout differences to completely broken functionality. This would be a good way to get you maybe 75% of the way, but you will still need some manual, on device testing.
