WIKO Smartphone Obtains Highest Performance Scores Leveraging viSer Test Automation

When developing new smartphones featuring the latest technologies, with battery autonomy you can rely on, all day long, and longer, WIKO needed reliable objective testing as well as expertise on Smartphone Battery Life and Performance provided by SmartViser

WIKO was looking for a team of experts with a testing automation solution, who can collaborate with their in-house team, allowing them to test, monitor, benchmark, troubleshoot, measure, to offer superior Quality of Experience and Quality of Service to their end-users for one of the most critical aspects “Battery Performance”

SUCCESS STORY OVERVIEW

CHALLENGES

  • The first challenge WIKO faced was by the R&D department with much effort devoted to finding innovations to further improve battery life for end-users. 

  • WIKO was looking to improve its test results’ analyses obtained from an accurate and repeatable method, capable to override human error and subjectivity to further promote its proven battery performances.

 

  • Finally, WIKO found that great improvements were being made and they were looking for objective proof to reassure consumers, the press and retailers of the superior battery capacity and performance.

SOLUTION

  • The Test Automation, viSer, was implemented in the R&D centre, so they could start testing battery performance earlier in the development circle. 

  • viSer, also provided valuable information in the analytics dashboard, that visually tracks, analyses, and displays the power discharge rate. With clearer insights into what’s happening the R&D team were able to improve specific areas.

  • With development completed the final product arrived in the ViserMark lab to be assessed and scored.  Testing was carried out in an independent testing environment by the ViserMark technical team. All activities are performed under strictly controlled test conditions, fully automated in a defined order and timeline.
