comment What are the best practices for error seeding
@user246 I thought that might be the case, however, I'm unsure of starting that thread without a well worded question. I simply haven't had enough experience with companies "Testing the Testers" to form a valid question.

comment What are the best practices for error seeding
@user246 However, in light of the topic of this question, organizations are willing to invest time and effort to seed bugs into the application in order to test the effectiveness of the team testing. Would the money used for that effort possibly be better used to improve communication and/or documentation?

comment What are the best practices for error seeding
@user246 false positives are bad, yes, but aren't many of them a symptom of under-communication or under-documentation of the expected behavior of the application? I've worked with a few overseas QA teams throughout my career and I've found that the better documentation you can give the less false positives you get (duplicates are just as much of an issue in this regard). Also, if the issue isn't under communication or documentation then isn't it time to re-evaluate your testing team in general (this goes for local and third-party testing teams).

comment How do I determine which Android devices to test my application on that will provide the largest coverage with the least amount of handsets?
Welcome, @Habba, this is a good question, but you might want to update your title to be more specific to what you're trying to get at. I'd suggest something like How do I determine which Android devices to test on so that I get the best coverage? Normally I'd suggest the edit officially, but you're new so I figured I'd give you the chance.
