Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • You can search this on Google. And this is too opinion based. One who loves Appium will always support while the other will support Selendriod. – demouser123 Jan 13 '16 at 11:28
  • but i want review from those who already use both. – Harshal Bagul Jan 13 '16 at 11:49
  • So you should change your question to more like what are the differences between X and Y. And you should give some more context, what is your scenario. Also it is unclear what you mean by "locking my scenario". – dzieciou Jan 13 '16 at 14:36

    What car I should buy? Oh, and I forgot to tell you that it is not for commuting, but I need it to haul concrete. We are building a dam. – Peter M. Jan 13 '16 at 15:24

Now, it all depends what you want to test. Here are some insights differences between them:

  • Selendroid can be used only on Android while Appium can be used on Android, iOS, and FirefoxOS (not sure if this is out of development as of now though)
  • they both support Native, Hybrid and Mobile Web applications
  • User agent testing and cross platform is supported only by Appium
  • they both support emulators, real devices and cloud testing
  • they both support the Selenium Grid
  • not sure about Selendroid, but Appium has good documentation and also a vast community including various blogs, tutorials, etc

Now, as I said, it all depends what you have under test, what platforms needs to be supported, what's your experience with one vs the other, etc, etc

  • Thx its really helpful for me. I can decide now, what should i use. – Harshal Bagul Jan 14 '16 at 6:02
